    Default New Review Features

    Hello!

    I have upgraded to the review pages to work better on mobile devices, plus a few new features.

    You can Like reviews

    If you are logged in, at the bottom of each review is a heart. If you click it, it will turn red, and will be added to a list of fragrance reviews you have liked. This is a great way of keeping track of your favourite reviews -- so if there is a particular review by Naed_Nitram that you want to save for future reference, you can do. There is a link to all of your 'liked' reviews on the main reviews page.

    Currently, there is no way of knowing how many likes a review has, or if anyone has liked your review, though I will add these at a later time.

    New Charts

    As well as a listing of the Most Prolific Reviewers, we also have a list of most prolific in the last 60 days, and most 'first' reviewers -- this is a listing of people who made the first review of a fragrance.


    Next up: Converting SOTD to mobile, adding new SOTD features and converting Huddler SOTD data.

    Just a slight whinge, Grant

    It looks a bit bare -- too much white space.

    Like the new features though

    Agreed. Reminds me of those Huddler days. Do bring back the colored background.

    Agree with this!

    l also miss having the total number of my own reviews displayed. And l'd prefer a top 50 of prolific reviewers, rather than 20.

    Second that!

    In addition I also wish there was a feature that shows which BNers own that fragrance in their wardrobe, kind of like during the huddler days.

    I like the "last 60 days" feature, it's a great way to highlight new reviewers.

    I hope for some of my suggestions to be applied soon Number of wears back in the SOTD and should coexist with the "people worn" option - not just top 50 but the entire list like on Huddler. Each frag in the directory - list of 10 last member wears and when - this actually existed for a while but only 5 wears and not a date. etc. etc.

    I've kept the coloured bit on the top bar of the review so you can easily see the rating. I've kept the backgrounds white for readability reasons.

    Glad you ignored pleas for the 'merde' icon for registering disapproval. It would have been too divisive.
    Number of sprays N = {(6-L)x(7-P)}/2 (where L = longevity and P = projection, on a scale of 1-5).

    Question: in the most reviews in the last 60 days section (which I love), is that in real time, or once they have been "approved"? I have about half a dozen reviews in that process that do not seem to be currently counted, and they are several days/weeks waiting to be approved. I have never minded my reviews taking several days to post (weeks, sometimes) but now that you are putting a timeline to it, it seems that there should be clarification.
