Anybody else think the "reviewers" on UT over rate (over score) the hell out of damn near every beer they rate? Most of the scores seem outta control, to me anyways.

Maybe.

Macro beers seem to higher ratings on Untappd over Ratebeer. I'd say that the ratings for the "hyped" stuff is about on par with what you'd expect to see here. I'll agree that a number of local beers often get over hyped by people throwing out 5's to their local favorite brewery.

I still think the much larger sample size makes up for most of this though across the board though.

I've started using Untappd scores for shopping because beers at RB seem "under scored" when it comes to good beer. Yeah, macro seem to be rated too highly at UT, but I don't care since I have no use of those numbers.

Paranoia, great destroyer.

Well, the tags page certainly took a major hit in usability recently, having been split into tags by letter, with the suggested tags not being shown properly either (one at a time, have to go to a letter for it to show the adequate suggested tag that starts with the letter). Hope it's just a temporary setback.

Wow, I see a growing presence of Untappd on Facebook. BA has always had a presence there but RB?
Other than an occasional post by Joe...

wouldn't that be 1 way to attract new members to RB??

The page has 25k followers, but it doesn't look like a whole lot of interaction on individual posts.

Daily posts, even if they are just sharing beer articles from other news sources, would be a good first step to getting the page more active, and hopefully foster a larger online presence.

The RB weekly should always be posted there, every week.
