Kinda similar to the "Kinda cool thing" thread.

Not a photo, but I just noticed my horned grebe recording from a few weeks ago is the 9th one. Posting this as I am mostly confused on how it managed to get 24 ratings, the 2nd most ratings any of my media has ever gotten. It was unrated for several days after I posted it and then it was at 3 stars with 3 ratings last time I checked and suddenly it’s at 4 stars with 24?  I guess I don’t understand how eBird ratings work as it never made it to the top audio of the day and I didn’t post it on here so where did all those ratings come from... It’s also from a low birded county. Weird.

The same thing happened to me with some black duck audio. It’s somehow gained 24 rates, and it’s not even that good. I think a lot of those mystery rates probably come from the eBird quizzes.
