Then everyone will just watch videos logged out so they don't have to give them a star rating.
(For the moment I'm not saying whether mandatory stars are good or bad, just trying to illustrate a consequence of the decision)

The org isn't a place to watch videos, it's a catalog and the design of the website is focused on that aspect more then anything else. amvnews is a distribution site for amvs, so you're most likely going to get more views.

The complaints I usually hear about the org are these:
1. elitism, bashing, and general reputation stuff.
2. "people will steal my video and upload it to youtube!" in other words streaming only = better
3. uploading is haaaaaaaaaaaaaard

Nobody's going to create an account just to watch a video, and that's a shame because being able to download a video as a guest would only attract more members. Not that I think this system will actually be changed.

As i've mentioned before, this website focuses on/is designed around the data, not the content. While the content is there, it's hidden under layers of data.
. . .
So why does it seem like videos on AMVNews are getting more hits? Because its the way the website was designed to operate. It's designed to get people to watch videos. The org is designed to get people to click through several pages and read stuff before they click through more pages before they can watch videos.
