Would it be possible to put the star ratings on the "Start Puzzle" page? Obviously the functionality to actually RATE the puzzles should stay on the "here's your score" page, but it would be nice to know how hard our fellow puzzlers thought the puzzle was BEFORE we actually start the puzzle.

Actually the average time statistics of the games is a good indication together with the success rate for the game. IMO, the higher the average time with lower success rate should point to a difficult puzzle.

Well, yeah, we all know that. But what's the point of HAVING a star rating then, if it's only on the page AFTER you solve it. It makes no logical sense. :P

That's a very good point. And now with new puzzles that haven't been played much, it would help choose the hardest and easiest puzzles...

I'm coming across some puzzles that have 21% solve rates, and 1800 second average times, and then I just zoom right through them. It would be nice to know ahead of time that out of the (hypothetical) two people that have solved it, one found it extremely difficult, but the other found it really easy, you know?
