I hardly ever search anything on forums. Like ever. And when I do I don't get what I'm looking for anyway.
This. Debate has been had. Now try one or the other and see how it goes. If it doesn't seem to work try the other thing.Is this really a hill to die on? Try it (single review posts and separate discussion thread) for a month and then try it the other way.
See what works.
Maybe we should address that issue. Their system seems solid, they apparently keep churning out reviews, so why isn't anybody interested? What mistake to avoid here?
I am not sure if this is what others have proposed but maybe everyone would be happy if—somehow, either through automated tags or manual intervention—an index of all review threads were created. That would increase visibility/accessibility, although not the danger of interruption and drift.
if this is really about people being too lazy to start two threads, then I'd go back to my suggestion that people post reviews in the main forum as normal, but at some point the mods (or just me, if it's really that much of a bother) can create a thread in the reviews forum that just contains the review as a longterm resource.
As a former music and film writer I detest rating systems, I don't mind if others used one but I'd definitely opt out myself.
I agree. I think the world’s had just a few too many tl;dr shortcuts.As a former RPG reviewer, I agree. It encourages people to not actually consume the review and pick up the details that will help them determine if they agree or disagree with the reviewer, instead taking the very subjective ratings as a thumbs up/thumbs down.
