OK. So this is pretty big. As I’ve posted about before, you can no longer publish single flavor recipes - they will be forced private. Also if you try to publish a recipe that is a duplicate of another, it will be forced private.
Now I’ve taken it a step further:
- 8,271 single flavor recipes has been hidden.
They were hidden, because I don’t feel that they are necessary; you can add a suggestion for single flavor percentage, and you can write a note on the flavor.
As for the duplicate recipes: I had to take the website down while the script ran. It took 47 minutes, but now all duplicate recipes has been hidden:
- 4,224 recipes had duplicates.
- Dupes had been favorited 33,072 times - the “original” recipe has been favorited instead.
- 2,906 dupes had been rated - the “original” now has those ratings as well.
- 7,662 dupes were hidden.
In total, 15,933 recipes has been hidden in this run.
Now, there ARE instances where one of the dupes were actually the original, so to speak. Like if someone published a recipe on reddit, for example, and someone inputted it on ELR before the author had the chance to input it, then the author’s recipe would actually be the original and the first one inputted a dupe, but for now the real “original” is hidden.
If you run into some of these, drop me an email or use the feedback form on “My page/favorites” and I will fix those.
