Rating dimensions... should they change?

If we were to change the dimensions, what do you think they would ideally be?

Personally I think we can replace characters as its very similar to story.

Maybe production?

And how would we handle the change? remove all ratings? or ask everyone to update the replaced dimension..

Would love to hear thoughts!

    One thing to keep in mind is that the goal of the shape rating is to demonstrate someone's experience with a film. After much trial and error, we landed on the current 5 dimensions as we believed them to encompass all aspects of a subjective movie-viewing experience. We wanted to avoid more objective traits - so we chose "Characters" instead of "Acting", since the latter can be more easily objectified. That being said, I can see how "Story" and "Characters" often go hand-in-hand, so perhaps a better dimension can be used.

    And its also worth mentioning, we'll never be changing them again (if we change them this one time). As it messes up all of the rating data we already have.
