    Hi teardrop, great question! You can find your Reviews by filtering out your Recent Activity filters on your Profile page:

    Once you click/unclick all the different filters, you should be able to see all your Reviews in the most recent order.

    Good thing I saved my reviews in MS-Word, but I'd still like to be able to access my reviews via Profile, just like before.

    @huddlersteph, hi there. The procedure you posted doesn't show the reviews I wrote prior to the BN upgrade. However, when I updated one of my reviews, the update showed up as an "activity". It would be nice to have a dedicated link just for the reviews, just like ALL POSTS, THREADS, SUBSCRIPTION links under the user's avatar.

    If I wanted to see a member's review, not everything will show up under his/her Recent Activity Feed.

    True! I'd love to have back my full list and be able to read all my favourite BNers' reviews...

    I also miss the list of top reviewers...

    When l clicked there, all l got was a list of my recent forum activity. This is not what l asked you for. l have written over 370 reviews, & l want to see them all in one place, without any other activity cluttering up the list. Please.

    Hi there del! Thanks for clarifying. The closest thing I could find to your request was this Advance Search: http://www.basenotes.net/newsearch?advanced=1&byuser=del&type=15

    You can replace the username portion of the URL I provided and it will aggregate all the reviews a user wrote. Example: http://www.basenotes.net/newsearch?advanced=1&byuser=[username]&type=15

    You wrote 372 reviews to be exact.

    Thanks, that is a start. Now is there a way to view them as complete reviews without having to click on each one individually in order to read it? Also, when l ask it to sort the list by "recency" (is that really a word?) there is no response. They are in a very random order right now. Alphabetical order would be great!

    There's still tons of reviews that we're loading up and will take a bit to populate. I'll check out what you're reporting and see if there's an issue with our recent view sorting link. Thanks for the report!

    Yeah, I really liked the ability to either see all of my reviews, or see a particular user's reviews, with the full texts, not truncated, thirty at a time I believe it used to be. The other thing I remember is that each list of the old wardrobe was unlimited in length...you didn't have to click through to page 2, page 3, it was all right there in one long single list.

    I think that the non-functionality of this area was pointed out when testing, so hopefully it is already on the 'to do' list..

    If that is true directly above, then it makes the lack of this functionality available at roll-out all the more disappointing. I'll add that in addition to the reviews not showing on an easy list to access at the member level, I also notice many of the star ratings for the reviews did not transfer properly (as some of my reviews have 5 star ratings on the new site, and in my review body itself I have the actual rating it should be (like 3 stars, etc.).

    I understand that it's being worked on - hopefully, improvements will be seen soon.

    I'm pretty sure that I pointed out that this area was not working during testing - until the data is all in place it probably won't work properly.

    It must be a pretty a massive undertaking, especially when combined with sorting out bugs, etc..

    I also miss the ability to see a particular user's reviews. Right now, when I click on "reviews", even mine, it takes me to the latest posts, not reviews. I hope we get this feature back. It is important on forums like this one.

    So where the hell are my reviews, goldang it?

    And I miss seeing those of others whom I've come to admire throughout the years.

    Mario - I think that the reviews will not be functional until the Fragrance Directory has been fully sorted, but I could be wrong.

    Once everything is here the functionality may be easier to deal with.

    Being worked on, but there were multiple problems when testing even up to the last day.
