The following are visual updates to our 1-5 rating scale pulldowns for reviewing Beers and Places and BeerAdvocate Overall Score (BOS). No data has been altered. Rating Scale with Words We've also applied words to the core 1-5 whole numbers, which are neither negatively or positively weighted and retains 3.00 as the average; .25 increments are intact. We believe this will allow members to more effectively express their opinion when rating. 1.00 - awful 2.00 - poor 3.00 - average 4.00 - good 5.00 - awesome Good/Very Good We've broken up the 80-90 BOS range. Good was 80-89, now it's 80-84. Very Good is now 85-89. Zero Padding Numbers are now zero padded for better readability; when viewing a pulldown. Example: 2 becomes 2.00, 2.5 becomes 2.50. We hope you find these subtle changes useful. Cheers!
