Roku channel ratings & review counts haven't updated since July

t appears that ratings information is not available in the channel store since around July 2022. Ratings & ratings counts have been frozen for older apps, and they just plain don't exist for newer apps. Is this a bug?

One could assume this also has implications for channel recommendations & which channels get downloaded & subsequently used; would you download an unrated app?

Apps from popular developers, even Roku itself showing 0 ratings:


The below plot, grouped by created date, shows the # of apps created vs apps that have any amount of reviews / ratings. Nothing since July 26th 2022.

It's honestly ridiculous nobody has responded to my repeated inquiries for weeks...does anybody know anything at roku?
