    This was mentioned once before but I would like to raise it again. I would like to know what recipes that I have rated and added comments to that were not found helpful, not who said so just which recipes. Although I must say that I would be suspicious if the same person rated all of these recipes as NO Cheers Bergy

    I agree!! I've tried to figure this out myself. When you go to the recipes I've rated, 21 people have "reviewed" my rating and of those, 3 did not find my rating helpful. But, on the "about me" page, it says 22 of 28 people. Where is this coming from? This DOES NOT COMPUTE. And, I went in to much more detail on my comments than others for the same recipe. How was that NOT helpful? icon_smile.gif Inquiring minds want to know. icon_biggrin.gif

    The discrepancy may be due to the fact that the recipe pages are "cached" (for performance reasons) from the day before and the About Me page is up-to-date. The recipe page statistics are 24 hours behind.

    So the About Me statistics are the ones to look at for current accuracy.

    Well, I suppose it would be nice to see the "helpful" votes next to the list of recipes you have reviewed, so you could see your "review stats" at a glance, the way you can see your "recipe stats" today. I'll put it on the list icon_wink.gif

    My guess would be that the person (s)- is having a snit. Diana

    If someone is having a snit they are snitting all over the place again!

    I hate to say it but it appears that they are. I've only reviewed 12 recipes. And since yesterday afternoon someone has gone through all twelve of those recipes and put down that my comments were not helpful. Now, I really don't care.I know that this is just a web site and I have many other ways to get my self esteem than from my recipezaar ranking. The only thing that bothers me is that it seems like someone is single-ing me out. I hope the person is enjoying their fun.

    Elizabeth, no, it's not just you. They've done it to me too. When you read my comments, I don't understand how they could not be helpful. It has to be intentional. Yes it is just a web site and I don't come here for self esteem but it really TICKS me off that someone gets away with this and other things they are doing that I won't go in to here.

    Have a Blessed day. icon_smile.gif Lali

    Hey there Elizabeth-your part of an elite club of excellent chefs who are being attacked in a new way. Someone, who has no self esteem, self respect or self worth
    (I pity the person)is now getting off by rating comments not helpful. My guess is she/he is going through the top 100's in everything and clicking no, not helpful, or pretending to try a recipe and rating it low(you can tell by the comments)or they are using a false name. I would hope that Gay and the Gang are working on a way to ban such negative people from logging on, or at least contacting them to find out what their problem is. It really is getting out of hand. I know I backed off on posting recipes because they were getting rated low "just for fun" and now I'm holding back on the comments. It's like handing someone a pen and poison paper so they can send it back to you. It's getting old. My advice, hang in there and hope theres a solution on the horizon. icon_wink.gif Diana

    It seems that a lot of us are having the same thoughts that someone is either in a snit and or is clearly interested in just the 'status' of being a top 10 chef.
    I think the ratings idea is a good one, and I also like being able to read someones review of anothers recipe..it has been through these reviews that I have sometimes decided whether or not to have a go at something.
    Read the reviews, think of the recipe, and if you want to give it that go, then do so.
    We're all aware of the 'snitter/s' and shouldnt let them bug us.
    Zaar gives us all the chance to share our recipes and try others, thats why I like coming here.
    and blow 'raspberries' to the snitters. =)

    I definately like to read the review but have to admit, I've taken to trying only new receipes that have not yet been rated, it seems to me one cannot trust the stars especialy the ones with no comments and now there seems to be a problem with the "reviewing the reviewer" I'm not doing the yes or no anymore, when reading recipes to try, except with recipes I post that someone has reviewed, which are very few. It's too bad, it kind of leaves a bad taste, but not bad enough to make me leave. I enjoy this place and the interesting people on board too much.

    Like I said, I'm not really bothered by this. It's Just a web site, albeit one I enjoy a great deal and one from which I get a great many good ideas. Maybe what these people are doing should help us to have a sense of humor about the site and not take ourselves or our rankings so seriously.
