Exclamation

Hi everyone,

The Website Reviews forum has been taking off! Thanks to all the reviewees for offering their site to be slaughtered and torn to bits..... errrrrrr.... reviewed, and thanks to all the other reviewers for taking time out to help each other with their sites and offer valuable feedback from different perspectives.

While all the reviews are going great, I would ask the following :

Reviewers : please try not to limit your reviews to one-liners, as they are usually as useful as a bunch of flies trying to kill a dinosaur. (Ok, stupid analogy, but you get my idea) I would ask that you offer as much feedback as you can in terms of whatever aspects you can pick out from your perspective, so that the reviewee can get as much benefit as possible. Of course, one liners may be accepted if you have absolutely nothing to say and wish to compliment the reviewee on an excellent site

The other reason, of course, for avoiding one-liner reviews as much as possible is the possible perception that you are simply boosting your 'post count' and eventually your user status, which is frankly just ridiculous

Reviewees : you're most welcome to ask for a second or third or fourth or xth round (uhmm.. well there might be a ceiling to that x no., but I don't think anyone would be sooooo extreme ) - much like Tabernack did. Don't feel shy!

P.S. If reviewees are scared by me, Mr. Nitpicky Reviewer of the Year, please say so and I will try to be gentle My reviews are always harsh but fair

Thanks for your attention - you may now return to your normal station. Cheers!

I personally think that you're partially right about oneliners. But for example I do review as I surf net, if I look at site and see that site have something good or bad I focus my attention to it.
You make very good reviews, but I think that you spend a lot of time on it. Other peoples can't have so much time. So I think that even shorter review is better than none at all.

Worldwide Period Shortage

Dana, there's currently a shortage of periods throughout the Internet. Please use them more sparingly, lest there be none left for others; requiring us to leave out essential punctuation at the ends of sentences

I had nothing to do with any of this. I wasn't even here, today; in fact, I was over there. Wait. As a matter of fact, I wasn't over there, either, but somewhere else entirely.
