Does Anyone Moderate The Review forums?

    I have noticed on the review forums there are some really stupid comments that are left on some of the gear reviews.

    I wasn't sure if anyone actually moderates the gear reviews but reviews such as as "this bass Sucks A$$" without any comments in the review should probably be deleted.

    Just a thought...

    Are you volunteering? :D

    Seriously, I should probably have someone look things over, or even require pre-screening for all new reviews.

    I had to edit a review just last week from some clown who reviewed a bow by saying it must suck even though he'd never seen one...because it was made of Brazilwood. I don't have time to do it, but I think some moderation or a review process is certainly in order.
     
  6. There are also some posts in there with no ratings that just ask...

    "Is this a good pedal... does it work on bass?"

    ...Come on people, it's for reviews, we have a whole forum for questions. :meh:

    I've changed the setup in the Review section, so that all new product uploads and reviews are put into an 'approval queue' before being displayed.

    Unfortunately there isn't a 'report review' button - but if you can send me any URL's of bad reviews I'd be happy to take care of it.

    Thanks,
