Do the 1-5 purple star ratings have any purpose?
I just wondered if they factor into anything or where just there for fun, also does 1 star mean you didn't like the show and 5 stars mean you loved the show right?
I think they're just for average user ratings. They don't seem to be particularly consistent or helpful. Kind of random. I'd be surprised if Funi uses them for any analytical purposes.
Yes, the star ratings represent the average overall community rating. Originally, the site was also supposed to display your rating instead after you rated as like red stars or circled stars, but that feature was placed on the back burner.
The only app that displays them as originally intended where you can rate per video experience and that rolls up to a video's overall rating is I think the PS3 app.
1 star = 😡. 5 stars = 😍
