Feature Request: Autopopulate playlist with "games with at least (x) amount of star ratings"/arrange by amount of star ratings

Having a parameter like this in place would make it easier to make auto-populated playlists with games with the top star-ratings in an extensive collection, while also weeding out obscure games with a single digit amount of star ratings.  Among some of the most revered games of all time, it is not uncommon to see the most unknown arcade games or licensed kids games for GBC all because they have one 5-star rating.  If one had the ability to limit the resulting titles to those that have been rated, say, at least 10 times, it would create a better-curated collection of heavy hitters, and automatically, too!

It would also be great to have the option to arrange game collections or playlists by "amount of star ratings", as Launchbox's star-rating count can often show which games are the most popular among users.

This is actually a user setting. Go into Tools > Options > Data > Search

There's an option in there called "Minimum number of community ratings in order to use". Set that number to 10, or whatever you like.

There's also the ability to create auto-populated playlists with top rated games, and the Arrange by option can be used to arrange by star ratings, or the ability to look at the results in list view and sort by star rating.

Incredible!  That is immensely helpful.  Thank you!
