    Recently we made some slight changes to the Rating Scale & BOS. We took a step back, listened to your feedback and put some more thought into both. The result is the following:

    Rating Scale Words
    • 1.00 - awful
    • 2.00 - poor
    • 3.00 - okay
    • 4.00 - outstanding
    • 5.00 - perfect
    Basically, "average" has become "okay," "good" has become "outstanding" and "awesome" has become "perfect" to better reflect the scale as it applies to rating Beers and Places.

    All rating scales, and the BOS, have been updated accordingly. Visual update only; data/ratings were not altered.

    Thanks again for your feedback.
