Full 3 stars from me. Could the Panel member that down voted this please amend to 3 or explain why they have given it only 2 stars.

Admin,  I think this is an example of the "old stars" from a previous model ID name remaining with the record when the ID name is changed.  This is an older record (#2486).  It may have been assigned another model ID previously, and when the owner changed the ID to new model, the stars associated with the old record remain w/ the new ID.   I'd mentioned this in other posts, but can't find.

Since unknown now have no stars, it' not a problem for unknown records changed to new ID, but for other records w/ ID, the stars from old remain w/ new ID.  My suggestion was to set it up so when the upper level ID name is changed, the star ratings are reset to zero.  The old stars are not representative on the new ID, so this is a case of "no data is better than bad data".  This problem is replete throughout the known watch database as these changes occur. 

Suggestions?

A great idea, but I'll need to see if it's possible.
Thanks Will.
