    Review Category

    Hey Mods, and Leaders,

    Why isn't there a specific category for reviews? I think this would be very helpful for information, and for organization...


    Can we get a thread category specifically for Reviews? VPS, Dedi Servers, Design work, etc..

    Yes, I've always wondered why the reviews aren't in one place and following on from this thread for this reason, I think signatures should be disabled throughout.

    It'd be interesting so contents could be sorted.

    Nope. I think the reviews are fine being posted the way they are. People would constantly post their reviews in the wrong forum and it would just add to the mods' workload.

    I tend to agree that it's fine as-is. All a dedicated "review" section is going to do is cause more shill/fake posting than already happens imho.

    Find a review site, you find hundreds or thousands of fake reviews. Here on WHT it's not focused around reviews / posting reviews, but it does happen. This means that the reviews that do get posted tend to be able to be verified/vetted. A dedicated "reviews" section, I think, would very quickly be overrun with too much spam.

    You're correct, that's the 'down' side.
    It could be interesting if people could be more sincere.
    Maybe it'd wouldn't worth the effort.

    It's not worth the work and annoyance it would cause. As previously stated it would only add to the workload moderators have to deal with and I (and I'm sure others as well) enjoy reading over the reviews in the Web Hosting forum; I like how it's so simple to find reviews. If you want a review of a dedicated server provider, you'll likely find it in the Dedicated Server forum and the same goes for shared hosting, reseller hosting, and VPS. Let's not make things more complex than they need to be.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
