This subforum is a place where reviewers can discuss the Review Team. This forum is for asking questions, helping each other, and making polite suggestions.

If you want advice for improving your Review Score, or need help understanding your reviewer score, please copy and paste the full reviewer score when creating a topic for help here. We cannot tell you why your score went up or down unless you show us both the full previous score and full new score.

Other reviewers will browse the old topics by title to get help. For that reason, make sure to use very descriptive titles when making new topics. Do not use non-descriptive titles like "please help" because that makes the forum very hard to navigate both for those who want to help you and for those need help themselves.

The following things should absolutely not be posted in this forum.

This forum is not for debates or complaints. This is not a debate forum. This is not a complaint forum.

Complaints or disputes about editor scorecards should not be posted here. Those kind of disputes should be handled privately. It's almost always better to spend your time and effort using the editor comments constructively to improve your next review than to spend your time and effort trying to dispute an editor scorecard.

Do not post questions or topics unrelated to the Review Team. This is a private support forum for Review Team Members only, so making posts here that are unrelated to the Review Team would create duplicate topics here and in the public forums. If you have a question or suggestion unrelated to the Review Team, you must post it in the Public Suggestion Box instead.

Writing a review

Post by Singer » 13 Aug 2017, 09:15

I have a problem completing a review of a book I read. After I completed reading, I wrote my review. Upon posting, I get a notification that it is automatically blocked. The error report shows that I have not rated the book as X of 4 yet I have done that in my review in bold as required. What should I do?

You wrote "4 of 4 stars" instead of "4 out of 4 stars". You should submit a new review with the correct format.

You should update the status of the book on your RT page and then post the review in the Private Review Forum. Please read the info on your RT page as it explains the process.

gali, at one point I had the same problem. I was assisted by others in this forum. First, on the your review team page and make sure you have checked on the tab written, "Yes, I have finished reading the book." Then go to review team forum and you click on the tab written "New post". You can also see on your review team page a navigation written the same words. After that, you write the subject of your review by giving the title and author of the book. Once you have done that, write your review as per the instruction in "Guidelines & Basics". The most important is that you have to rate the book as X out of 4 and make sure it is in bold font. Make sure you preview your review before you submit. Once you are satisfied with the review, submit. You will be navigated to another page where you will need to rate the book again by checking into a given responsive tab.

If you do that, you will be through. Ensure you do your review within seven days after you confirmed that you have finished reading the book. :P
