indeed buggered up. I'm going to have a look tonight to see if it is salvageable..
I decided to trawl through my reviews, today, because some time ago I came across one that should have been a thumbs-up but is a neutral. It now appears a significant number of my reviews (i.e. at least 10%) that should be either a thumbs-up or thumbs-down are neutrals instead.
Has anyone else experienced the same problem?
are the ones that have turned neutral ones that have been edited at all? I'm wondering if the edits aren't recording the correct rating
Grant, after having a quick look through my reviews, it seems that most (if not all) of them are reviews dated from May 2008 onwards. Chances are that all of the ones incorrectly rated were edited after being submitted. The funny thing is, I rarely change the rating - I just correct typos or re-write a review. For example, my review for Eau du Soir is a neutral - quite strange as I love the stuff and currently own a bottle! My review for EdS was always positive...
Cool! Many thanks, Grant.
Review edits are now turned off to prevent further probs. cheers trebor
I am brand new to the site but have resubmitted one product review four times since last week, without success, and am still waiting to see if the other product review I wrote four days ago will be accepted. This sort of takes the fun out of trying to participate in the community.

Thanks for replying. I have no problem with a waiting period; mostly I just wondered why one of the scents I reviewed has not even shown up as "pending approval." So when I saw this thread I thought it might be a good idea to post my experiences with the review rating system. But it is a big site to manage, so things are bound to happen or not happen, from time to time.
The rating system doesn't work properly!!! All my ratings got mixed up. I'm totally shocked and now I cannot even revise my ratings.
The same problem with me. How long is this mess going to last?
I have been trying to add more details to a review I submitted recently without success. Please fix the problem with editing reviews soon.
Wow, this feature has been disabled for months now. Not good.
To the new members... in all fairness, the review editing ability was only recently added, so a few months with it off isn't going to hurt anything. Give it time... there is a bunch of work and limited resources to address it.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

Editing should be back on.

Any news on the editing function? I just discovered - the hard way - the review system doesn't allow html and I'm trying to take out some pointless tags.
When might we expect to see a return to the process of being able to edit our reviews?
I'm curious about this myself.

Really like to see the EDIT feature turned back on. It's kinda dangerous without being able to change since, like food, fragrances take time to appreciate fully.
Bump! I'm getting impatient. I know you work hard, Grant, and I appreciate it (nice to see the chat room up and running), but I'd really like to make some edits.

I'll add here that I wouldn't mind if there were some ads on this site that provided the money to get these kinds of things done a lot quicker. Has that been considered?

Its my current project. So when the day to day running of the site is done for the day, it's what I'm working on.
