You know how to apply your own ratings, so you know how to do this (nobody said that this is easy).
The editorial ratings are just that. You can’t change editorial content in Roon. You can replace some of it by your own (Picks, Rating).
Feel free to provide links to such statements or – much better IMHO – ask questions about “how to do it” in the thread you found the statement in. I don’t know of a method to bulk rate albums (overwriting the editorial star-ratings).
If you’re able to let go the star-ratings of the UI, you can make use of tags for your own ratings. You can use tagging software to bulk-edit tags in files and of course there’s still is the usual built-in “Add to Tag” feature that also works for multi-selections.
Please read a bit more carefully and don’t tell me that I know how to change all existing ratings when they’re un-editable editorial metadata. Applying my own ratings via tags is not at all the same thing.
change all existing editorial ratings to your personal ratings (Note: Half a star is the minimum) and you’re done. (Explanation: No more editorial ratings to be shown.)
add a tag (like e.g. “My Rating”) to albums rated by yourself and include it in the focus also. So in your example you will only see the 2 albums rated by yourself and you’re done. (Explanation: No albums not rated by yourself are shown [focus on personal rating instead of the editorial rating])
Nobody said so. Don’t know where you read that.
If you’re referring to the last part of my previous post: It’s an alternative way to achieve the same result without messing around with the double-used (editorial and personal) rating stars of the Roon UI.
1> How can I focus on my ratings instead of allmusic’s editorial ratings?
2> If you really want to do that, you have to either
2> * change all existing ratings
3> I can’t see any way to do this. The editorial stars are read-only
3> in the UI, and they’re not in the “edit” dialog. Do you know of a
3> way to set them all to “unset”?
4> You know how to apply your own ratings, so you know how to do this
4> (nobody said that this is easy).
5> Please read a bit more carefully and don’t tell me that I know how to

5> Applying my own ratings via tags is not at all the same thing.
6> Nobody said so. Don’t know where you read that.
Now I say:
7> You did say so in (4).
Let’s move on now.
All the workarounds to this common issue are pretty awful. I hope roonlabs fixes this some day.
