    Default The review rating system is a bit buggered up...

    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?

    it seems the whole review system is indeed buggered up. I'm going to have a look tonight to see if it is salvageable..

    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...

    I'm thinking that what happens is when you edit a fragrance, it doesnt take any notice of the previous rating and just defaults to neutral. I'll have a look -- an edited review doesnt delete the old one, so the previous ratings are still in the system somewhere

    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.

    Per the terms of service, new members have to wait until their reviews are approved.

    You can have your reviews posted immediately if you are a paying supporter or if you have reached a certain number of posts (maybe 500, I can't find the complete info on this).

    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.

    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.

    While I am sympathetic to the lack of resources available to address the problem, knowing this does not make it any less frustrating to not be able to access the editing feature on our reviews. Personally, I would prefer having access to the edit feature regardless of whether the "thumbs up/down/neutral" rating system is fully operable; people can gauge whether a review is favorable by reading it.

    I agree. The editing feature should be turned back on. And I, for one, haven't experienced any difficulties with my thumb ratings. Could it be a browser issue for some folks?

    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?

    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?

    Hmm. So review editing has been off since October? Any thots on when it will be back on.

    I correct myself. It's been off since July 2008.

    It's, in fact, totally messed up. All my reviews were given a neutral status, quite against my intentions.
    Can't you do something about this?
