It would appear that deleting reviews and adding beers to an entry by aliasing does not affect the beer score - until it’s rated by someone new. So, for example, a beer with two faked ratings that were deleted by someone still showed as having a near-5.0 score on the beer and brewery page despite having 0 ratings.
It also showed as having 2 ratings, while there are none - so that is not updating either. The “ratings” count stays the same after deletion, while the reviews count is correct.
We used to be able to remedy that by entering a rating of our own and deleting it - but now that doesn’t help either - the number is stuck.
The “Fix Score” function does absolutely nothing too, making things even worse.
@services - this seems like a pretty important fix.
