Review Not Posting

I posted review of RG760 last week but still not showing up.
How long does it take?
When I finished, it said Review Successfully Submitted.

I want to do more reviews, but need to make sure there's no problem with system.

Thanks

Re: Review Not Posting

Anyone?
I see others getting posted.
Is there a person in control of that function?

Hopefully, the person in charge of the Review Section will see our pleas for help.

Re: Review Not Posting

Sorry, I'm the sole person left running the reviewers club, and life really hasn't given me the time required to maintain anything.

I haven't been able to spend time going through new entries, because quite frankly most are usually really badly written, and the effort required to fix up the names of products, add links, fix spelling, grammar, punctuation, paragraphs just takes too long for me to be able to take care of it all.

I'm not sure if there's anyone really willing left who also has the time to maintain it all. Alan emailed me earlier in the week to see how things are going, but quite honestly not much is going on, and not that many reviews are generally put through anyway.

Combined with the absolutely atrocious search feature I don't think it really gets used that much anymore anyway.

Are you basically telling us all to not bother posting reviews?
I know mine went though the spell checker.
If you're saying that it's just too time consuming for you, then it's much more time consuming for the person actually writing them.

what is the bottom line here, not bother to post reviews anymore and shut the club down?

Thanks for replying to our help request!

Re: Review Not Posting

I really don't know. The site owners were the ones who set up the scheme, but really haven't had any involvement for a very long time. Anyone that was a member on the site who worked on it has either ended up with too much on their plate to be able to help, or banned for known reasons.

Trust me, if you saw what many people think passes for a quality review then you would know that the moderator spends a lot more time working on fixing them! Many reviews are either pointlessly short, terribly written rambling messes that need a lot of work to make any sense of it, or just extremely badly written with no spell checks, or efforts made with punctuation or paragraph spacing.

Editing almost always takes a lot more time than actually writing.

I really don't know what to do with the club, I still haven't heard back from the site owner. It must not be that important..
