    Talking A verified image on reviews? POLL.

    Lately I have been seeing a lot of reviews in the web hosting forum which is good. People are expressing their feelings about certain hosting companies etc.. But on some of those reviews the OP does not give a domain name, basically anything to verify that he is hosted with the company he is writing the review for.

    Now what I was thinking is for people that are actually looking for reviews to have an easier way of finding out what WHT things of the review without reading the whole thread. So if the OP does not provide enough information WHT would put an Unverified Review image or something somewhere in the post.

    Maybe we can add some type of a verified/unverified review image to the post?

    What do you guys think?

    I agree with the concept, however, I believe we should have a dedicated forums for reviews e.g...

    Shared Hosting Provider Reviews
    Dedicated Server Provider Reviews
    VPS Provider Reviews

    Each forum could have a 'verification team' (5 or 6 members who verify each review, to free up moderators time)... Just an idea.

    Well just giving the idea, but we can pitch in more ideas here and make up something. Hopefully the mods see this thread .

    I agree with this idea and surprised a specific forum for posting reviews doesn't already exist.

    I agree with this concept, more and more fake reviews are popping up lately... which is really making WHT a rough community lately. I voted YES!!!

    No you can look I don't post false reviews ! I've been a member for a long time .. I just hate when people do stuff like that and it shouldn't be necessary to have a verified/unverified image. WHT used to be a simple place to get knowledge...I don't know

    haha oooh gotcha! I posted just before you that I said no .

    The more I think about it, IT COULD be a great feature, and since there are so many hosts, and so many fake reviews, maybe... people suck and shouldn't abuse it though.
