How are the review ratings calculated?
I'm a bit baffled, so if someone could clarify, I'd be grateful.
In the review database, each model has a 'score', of (presumably) somewhere between 0 and 5.
Each reviewer gives a 1-5 brick score for 5 categories (Overall, Building experience, Parts, Playability and Value for Money), and I'd assumed that these were combined to give the overall score.
However, if we look at #42006
, it only has one review. For the five categories, it scored 5,5,5,5,4.
I'd therefore expect that 24/5 would give it a 4.8.
And yet it has a score of 3.8
Can anyone explain how the scores are determined, please?
