This rating only includes titles that have at least 4 votes. The bayesian estimate is a statistical technique used to reduce the noise due to low sample counts. In effect, the less a title has votes, the more it is pulled towards the mean (7.735). In other words, these are the titles that many people agree are great. (formula)
