Thread: Review Forum Guidelines

  1. #1

    Review Forum Guidelines

    Before you jump in and start reviewing or reading reviews, be sure to read the following:

    Reviewing your own product/services:
    • Please don't! This is not a forum to advertise your product, and any reviews of your own product would undoubtedly be biased.
    • This also applies to 3rd-party reviews of your product.
    When creating a thread:
    • Search first! There may already be a review of the same product that you were considering reviewing. It's best to keep reviews for the same product in one thread.
    • Create a thread only if you are the reviewer. Users come to this forum to read reviews by fellow Kirupians! They will search the web for externally published reviews.
    • Include the body of the review in the post itself. The thread should not serve as a conduit to your review site/blog.
    • Don't start a thread asking for a review. If you are having trouble finding a review already, it is rather unlikely that a member will be casually browsing the Review forum looking for reviews to write. If you read a post from a user who appears to be an expert on a product elsewhere on the forums, and you would like them to write a review, try sending them a polite private message.
    Other things to keep in mind:
    • This forum is supposed to be appropriate for readers of all ages; reviews should be similarly appropriate. Review items should not include tobacco products, alcohol, or other products that might encourage behavior inappropriate for younger users . Use good judgment when picking an item to post!
    • Links to reviewed products should not contain any referral tags. You should post reviews for the benefit of the other users, not because you stand to reap a reward from product site hits.
    • Use descriptive thread titles.
    Enjoy reading the reviews, and don't forget to post review feedback!

    Just a quick question, can we review video games and such, because I always want to know people's opinion about a game before I fork out the cash for it?

    Is it appropriate to post things like this ... ?

    Or would you say that's bad?

  7. ^ as long as you have a disclaimer saying it is your own opinion I guess you could write anything *suitable* Nokrev.

    I was thinking about reviewing Eragon (Inheritance Trilogy), would that be an OK thing to review here?

    Temp, do you mind if I write a generator in PHP so that people don't have to go through the hassle of creating their own images over and over again?

    Don't worry about hosting, I've got PHP5 with GD2 so it isn't a problem. And I've got Myriad Web Pro also.

    ^Yea and remove the [PS2] at the start of the titles. lol. *and yea you can set the background to transparent in my template and resave it when your doing it. I don't think we have to care about IE6 users viewing the forums web dev/des are smarter than that.
