A good way to find some of those gems is to look at the recipes of people who are active and helpful here. There are a lot of very good mixers in these forums, check out their stuff. The site has over 45k recipes, and those are just the ones open to the public. Go back and look at recipes from when ELR opened too.
Ive had something interesting happen on a couple recipes, a no star vote that effects the overall score. It must be a bug, in all the time ive been using the site i have never seen a no star vote until now.
So it looks like one of them are gone, i was going to post it and tag @daath. Somehow it happened twice with this person.
