Understanding Recipe Ratings

We figured it out! Our developers had been asked to show you your rating, along with the overall rating, of the recipes. It took a bit of doing, but they figured it out!

The New Red Stars
show you what your rating for the recipe is. Plus, the yellow stars still show you the overall rating of the recipe.

We need your ratings so we thought we would make it easier for you to tell if you had rated a recipe, and what you had rated it. Coming soon, we will allow you to sort the recipes based on what you rated them as well!

Rating recipes is easy! In any screen where the recipe is shown, you can click on the stars (or the words “Not Rated”), and you will be shown a pop-up window that allows you to rate the recipe. Just drop-down the rating list and select the number of stars, then click Rate!That’s it!

We thought we’d show you how to decipher them by giving you some examples.

Recipes you have NOT rated have only yellow stars, such as:
Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you have not rated this)Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you have not rated this)Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you have not rated this)Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you have not rated this)
That’s an average rating of 3.5 stars (out of 5 possible). If you hover your mouse over the stars, a tip pops up showing you the actual point average, and how many users rated the recipe.

Recipes you HAVE rated have yellow AND red stars, such as:
Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you rated this a 4)Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you rated this a 4)Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you rated this a 4)Rated 3.5 by 6 users (you rated this a 4)
That’s an average rating of 3.5 stars, and your rating of 4 stars. The red stars sit inside the yellow stars. Note that the right-hand star has yellow that ends half-way across, yet the red is a full star. You’ll find that once you start using it, you can see right away either the yellow stars or the red stars, depending upon which ones you are looking for.
