Personally, I think the ratings should go away in favor of a praise/recommend button, and rating based article ranking if any, be based around those.

That way you effectively remove downvotes, which if you think about it don't contribute to the community nor rarely foster improvement - and never when they aren't accompanied by comments.

Comments are where improvements get suggested effectively. 1 star votes are just a way to crap all over other people.

If I think your article needs improvement, I'll write a comment. I usually vote 5 stars if I vote. I'm leery about giving 4s because I don't like dinging a perfect score, but if it's already not perfect, I'll consider a 4 vote in lieu of a 5, if i think there's room for improvement.

But like I said, i think the ratings system is not ideal in the first place, and should be replaced.
