Firstly, thank you for an excellent website.

As a humble suggestion for improvement:
When I go to a category of reviewed items, I see a list. Amongst other sort options, I have an option to sort by the number of reviews or by the rating. Wouldn't it be nice if....

When sorting by the rating, I think it should also sort by the number of reviews.
This would then show items with equal rating sorted by the highest number of reviews first.

This would be very convenient as there are often many items with a rating of 5 and yet only 1 review. Clearly this could be biased as it only represents one person's opinion. I would rather see an item with a rating of 5 which has 50 reviews listed ahead of it.

I really want to see the highest rated, most reviewed items but I cannot achieve this with your current system.

Thanks for listening.

I was just thinking the same thing too.
