    Default A little Safety measure

    hi Patricia, I notice that every now and again a post pops up with a less than complimentary review of the punters experience, this is usually done as a first review and it nearly always leads to claims and counter claims about the validity of the review, as to wether it is an attempt to discredit the escort, some-one being mischievous, or heaven forbid, one escort/agency, talking dirt on another for business purposes, but we all know that that does not go on, don't we!!

    Anyhow, i dygress, to aleviate this problem, you could impliment a system, whereby anyone who wants to post a review of an escort has to have a certain amount of posts on the forum, it would automatically stop anyone from just logging on in an internet cafe for example and posting any old rubbish about an escort.

    For example:
    Joe has 25 posts on the forum, and he visits an escort, his experience is less than satisfactory,so he posts a negative review of the girl, the others on this website are more inclined to beleive him because of his previous posts, if you want , he has earned the right to post a review
    I know that this would probably result in a short term drop off in the number of reviews however, in the long term , the quality of the review system would have been enchanced considerably and the numbers of reviews would easily return as people trust the review system more.
    Any Views?

    Cool Dead-end

    This has been suggested in the past and Patricia's response was along the lines of "but some reviewers don't like to post on the message boards ........... "

    I however think it is a great idea!!!

    While there seems to be some problems with the review system and false reviews...............both positive and negative, I believe Patrica is correct in not changing to a system whereby your review is depending on the number of postings to the forum.

    So many posts contain nothing of benefit to punters and are just banal rantings and ego trips. Many more are just plain bullying and a case of personal attacks against other punters or adminstration personel. Perhaps a solution to that problem would be to limit postings to two posts per day from any one person and then the quality of those two might improve as a person wouldn't want to waste their opportunity (but that is a different topic).

    One addition which helps and which should be taken into consideration more by punters is the profile of the reviewer which clearly shows how many reviews and how many POSTS he has made in the past.

    So when someone reads a review I have made they see I have made 9 reviews and about 39 posts. If they wish to see how I approach punting and escorts in general they may do a little checking and then judge my ability, sincerity and honesty from my posts.

    Do we really need to ONLY get reviews from those who post twenty times a day here on this forum ....lets hear from everyone and with the safety checks already in place it is easy to see those reviewers who are fake and those who are genuine.

    Cheers

    I think i was posting reviews for a good while before i posted on the forum. I'd say alot of guys might be the same, post reviews and you never see them on here.
    Have you written your reviews?

    That automatically turns it in to a catch-22 situation as in how do i get my review up if i am only new to the game and how do i get my twenty five reviews going if i canīt get my first one up.patricia,i think, have taken enough steps to improve upon the chaos that was going on before.Bad spelling mistakes totally giving away the con and some reviews even echoing watch an escort has said about herself in her introduction at the top of her profile!

    Dub-Boy you're on to something there, but Magic Man makes valid point. I think 5 posts is enough...
