Workshop Rating Algorithm?
The pinned post says it's based on thumb ups vs thumb downs, but I have an item with 52 ratings, all of them thumb ups, and still only get 4 stars. There has to be some hidden factors... Anybody knows what it is?

So, what you're saying is, you get 5 stars with 50 ratings? (1 star = 10 rates?)

I think I have an item with over 50 ratings too and no 5 stars yet :/

Sadly, I'm saying you DON'T. the first thing you would guess is the percentage of positive ratings would equal to the amount of stars, ergo 90%+ thumb ups = 5 stars, 80%+ thumb ups = 4 stars, etc, like ABCD grades in homework, but I just found out this is not the case here. I have 100% positive ratings and still only 4 stars :( So that's why I'm asking what the actual algorith is that is used to calculate the number of stars.

oh , I think it goes by just the number of rates...

I have noticed, that negative ones are included in the total count for 'rates', but meh...moving on..I seem to notice that at around 35 rates or so onwards, you get 3 stars there are no 2 stars or 1 star at all...and at around 45 ratings or higher, I see three becomes 4..

I'm guessing 5 stars is when you get 100 ratings?....just wait and see...

well i just got 100 ratings. 98 positives. still 4 stars. the 5 star item with the least ratings had about 230 of them, so maybe the mark is at 200? like how ratings don't even show up until you have at least 25 ratings? we'll see if i can get that many lol.

You'll be happy when you get your five stars eh?...

I'm happy that there is the Workshop so we can share our ideas, our talents and learn new skills..That it doesn't cost money to do this is also highly beneficial...We're already putting in, so we deserve the reward of having this place to shine.. That's good enough for me :)

I wouldn't worry about it. Yeah like you said, let's see when it gets to 200 eh haha...

well for future references if anybody else is curious, i believe i got it figured out. i tracked my items for a bit. i have had a few items that have gotten 95% positive ratings throughout their existences, and they remain at 4 stars until they obtain at least 175 total ratings good and bad combined, so maybe that's the threshold as of now.

Right, I got to 110 pozzies or so, and still 4 stars..so. Yeah, will perhaps be something to do with a higher threshold or something...
