My definition of “potentially good” = 5 or 4 star ratings by 10 or more people. A 5 star rating by just the creator or maybe a couple of friends is worthless.
Filter by number of flavors. Recipies with >X flavors are of little or no value to me. My #flavors threshold is 5. Others may be more or less.
Let me see only newer recipies. Many old ones are good, of course, but many old ones have odd ball flavors that are no longer available. I’d really like to see the “good” recipies created in the last year.
I’ve tried using the few undocumented URL tags and can’t find a way to achieve this. Maybe there are some I don’t know about. The “&fcount=x” tag is handy, but I have to run it once for 5, again for 4, etc. Tried “&fcount<5” but that does not work. But why should I even have to fiddle with the URL?
So make me a simple 4 part filter that says:
A. Rating = minimum of X stars.
B. RateCount = >Y
C. Flavors = between X and Y (example: 2 and 6)
D. Date = newer than mo/da/yr. (or between two dates).
There are many good even great recipes that wont ever have that many comments by others , because the mixer may not,have a following or whatever , what you can do is start mixing some of your own recipes then you wont need anyone’s opinion except your own
But I find it helps to read the forums, which I have see you have done some reading.
It helps to dig in. Meaning that I kind of open the the lid on the recpie side, often searching by flavor then by recpies with that one flavor to see how people are mixing with it. Then I just sort of go about my way with building mixes that fit my tastes.
More often than not I have to stop building recpies because I don’t need to mix that much…then again some might think I’m crazy for mixing 15-25 recpies every two weeks.
Apparently unique in this community? Really?
Your initial post most definitely carries a demanding-like tone to it. The replies you got are not unexpected. Maybe proof read your messages next time before you post because the subsequent judgmental reply isn’t going to fly!!
My most humble apologies. Everyone here is great, special, and deserving of the highest praise. A really first class group. Being an old guy, I just recently learned the new urban definition of “Snowflake.” I asked Ben Shapiro for advice and he gave me some. Hope it works.
