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.

Handling family emergencies

Post by EPark » 15 Jan 2018, 19:55

I am in the process of reviewing a book, but a family emergency has prevented me from completing my review on time. Now I have received an email indicating that I may potentially be banned from the review team, but because it came from a no reply email I don’t know who to contact to prevent this while I finish the book and my review. Is there anything I can do to extend this time and avoid being banned? I’m enjoying the book now that I’m able to read it again and I really would like to uphold my obligations. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

How do I do that? I go to the review update page and it offers me the options to complete review, return hated the book, return cannot finish, or report an error or problem, but that option only tells me to go to the forum. Am I missing a link?
