Hi,
When rating places, a user had to rate at least 10 places for his rating to be taken into account, but thatís no longer like that.
Now it allows owners/spam users to change completely a placeís score.
why was this great feaure changed ?

Is that correct? I thought it was 10 as per beers?

Thereís been a few examples of London venues recently being rated as highly as 100/100 by mates/spam accounts (who have a place rating total of 1) having done the review!

It wasnít changed. If a user has less than 10 ratings, it still doesnít count toward the score.

Thanks for that nugget. It clearly explained away this non-issue. I wonder why Joe even felt the need to jump in here.

Hi, are you sure about that ?
It used to display a line ídoesnít countí (or something similar) on those ratings, but I donít see this anymore.

Hi, troubles. You appear to be correct about users with <10 place ratings counting. This issue is being looked into.

Iíve also noticed an uptick in friendly spamming... makes it a bit tougher to separate the wheat from the chaff, although itís hard to blame a bar owner and his buddies for trying.
