Before you write a Mini-Review Read This
« on: June 07, 2008, 08:06:06 AM »
Some guidelines:
  • Please use the mini-review template so that your mini-review is formatted nicely.
  • Please attach images rather than linking them offsite
  • Please read our policy about ensuring no conflict-of-interest between you and the company you are writing about.


Conflict of Interest issues for Reviewers:
  • We will not tolerate anyone getting any payment in return for writing a review.  If we find out that someone on our forum has been given some payment in return for writing a review we will take every step possible to call out the company and writer and make sure that the consequences outweigh any possible ill-gotten benefits. [important note: as discussed on the forum several times, we do not have a problem with a reviewer getting a free copy of the program being reviewed for their own personal use, as this does not present an incentive to write a good review of a bad product and seems fair].
  • We will not tolerate any pressure on a company to give a discount in order to get a positive mini-review.
  • No one with any other conflict of interest or relationship with a developer that would bias a review should be writing a review without clearly stating their relationship and biases up front.
