Um, what?

Sorry to confuse you, Deviant, just felt weird requesting a flag/feature for a negged review. I don't what you do and don't factor in when you flag/feature in reviews, so if negs are a huge factor when deciding not to flag/feature something I just wanted to clear up that it was unwarranted and my review was proofread as hell so there shouldn't have been any mistakes in it. That's all I was trying to get across.

I personally don't have the power to feature reviews but in terms of featuring I'm pretty sure mods don't take into account pos/neg ratio (unless obviously it's like 3/8 or something), they typically will read the review themselves and judge whether it's good enough for a feature

Ok, thanks Brostep! I've had reviews featured in the past but never one with a neg before so I wasn't sure how things work.

Can you flag reviews though? Not saying my review is great or anything but personally I think the review flagged for this album is pretty awful.

Insurrection requests flags for reviews all the time, and they often do get flagged

Yeah so do I, was just asking Brostep if he has the authority to flag since he's Staff.

Normally that would be considered and most definitely approved given the other review for it, but the pending staff review will automatically trump it, and it's before the official release date, anyway.

It's not supposed to be a punisher, but there are people who get too trigger happy with flag requests ("omfg just posted mine 2 seconds ago gotta ask for a flag") and I can only tell them 'no' so many times because they are sloppily written or aren't palpably better than the currently flagged review.

The same thing goes for people who post in this thread way too often expressing an irrelevant opinion or answering questions incorrectly. If someone who's not a staffer has more posts than any of the meds in this thread - and they don't actually report problems but offer unsolicited opinions - we universally ignore things they say even when they do have a legitimate request. It's my favorite kind of ignore list.

EDIT: In your case, it's not because the review is poorly written (it's quite good, so hooray!), but it's written in advance of the official release date and there's a staff review on the way.

Thanks for the reply Jom, you answered all of my questions! I hope you're not referring to me in the second and third paragraphs of your comment, but if so I'll try to make my requests more relevant from now on. In any event, thank you, and I will be looking forward to reading that staff review when it comes!

I was not. I'll bet you dollars to donuts that someone I am referring to will show up soon, though, based on recent history.

As much as I enjoy my fine, friendly Oceanic friends (as long as your bugs and spiders stay the fuck there), we operate on the 'Murican calendar.

Quite the laundry list?
Some yes, but not all of them. Cheers.

Everything else should be done, with a thinly-veiled reminder that every time you vote against other reviews to elevate your own, I just wipe out all your votes altogether.

Ajax only goes up to your most recent four, but if you 'X' out one or two, your fifth- and sixth-most recent digs will pop up in the window upon refreshing.

This was recently addressed, but tl;dr = flags are unnecessary prior to official U.S. release dates.

You don't need to request features for staff reviews dude, we're already well aware of them. Thanks though!
