I've often wondered about the purpose of having the "I want this item" option. It seems counter-intuitive to have an option for people to write quality reviews about things they do not own or have not tried.

I don't see anything wrong with the "I want this item" option if used appropriatly. Could be possible that someone has used an item from a friend or demo day and has a worthy review. This could work on many items and be an issue for something that may require more than a few uses to get a quality opinion about.

mmm that's strange because I've left reviews with this kind of information and I find them under my "spam" reviews, granted all of them may not have carried your desired weight but when I purchase a product from your site and I leave a review on after use and it gets marked as spam and taken down it seems counter intuitive for me to bother wasting my time on them when I only get points taken away and lose the ability to leave a review which has happened. It's funny I sign on in January and I have lost lots of points and apparently ALL my reviews marked as spam.

I don't think you would lose the ability to review, you just won't get points for them.

And 400+ points for brand reviews? c'mon now.

Interesting question: Don't staff reviews artificially manipulate a products score?

The staff at Sie...Trusnow review products sold at Sierra, even Sierra boards. Often, several employees, Doug included, will conduct a review (I'm thinking Sierra boards). There is a conflict of interest here...the staff has a professional obligation to sell their product, but that produces questions about their reliability as objective reviewers.

I'm not calling the staff liars--in fact, I know very well it's their job to sell...and I am confident that they are as honest as possible within the limitations. But it's hard to imagine Doug getting on here review the RC and being like, "Sorry bros, this board is distinctly inferior to competitor reverse camber all mountain boards, etc." or even just a lukewarm, "Eh, this board is ok, but not great."

Yet, the star rating from staff are calculated in the product's score. So Doug, for ex., gives the Stunt 5 stars. The Stunt may well deserve 5 stars and Doug is certainly more qualified than I to rate it, but since it seems like Doug CAN'T get on and give it, say, 3 or 2 stars it seems like the staff are forced to be a kind of product sunshine-pumpers.

It might be the case that if Doug can't give a product a good rating, he simply doesn't rate it all. But that can't possibly be publicly helpful. After all, how are we to know which products the staff has not rated because they haven't tested it and which ones they haven't rated because it kinda sucks?

In general, I appreciate Doug's and others reviews, so please don't take offense. But I wonder how others think about these "institutional reviews", which have the irony of coming from people who are more qualified than the general public to assess products but are simultaneously more constrained.

Hmmm. Conspiracy is afoot! Isn't that like Mickey D's giving you a copy of Super Size Me as you get your order at the drive up window. Or come on down to Subway and try our new sandwich because it taste like cat shiz! No company is going to advertise that their products suck. Plus you can always read the other 8000 reviews not by the staff telling you how sick a product is.

I personally ignore the star ratings, but perhaps that's just me. And I appreciate that there's at least some transparency in knowing the reviewer is staff and therefore *might* have some bias (though just because they're staff doesn't mean they have to write 5 star reviews. Doug and Donald both gave the regular crew 4 stars.) There's no way you can eliminate all bias from a review, and I'm sure there's plenty you don't know about. Who's to say the stellar review you read on a Rome Pusher isn't some Rome rep using the anonymity of the internet to boost interest in their product? Or that the negative reviews aren't being done in the same fashion? It's really a law of averages, and you have to take every review with a grain of salt. That said, it helps that Doug writes expansive, thorough and specific reviews that really talk to the strengths of a product, and that is probably why they garner so much attention.

You get like 90 something points for changing all of your profile information. He probably just reviewed all of the equipment he owns. Its not like he reviewed 10 pairs of gloves. He reviewed 2 jackets, pants, gloves, a board, and bindings. I have more than two jackets, but they arn't on the site so I can't review them :(   /cry

Edit: But they are terrible reviews. Everything is "warm and durable"
SuperEdit: I'm more suspicious of him being 6'0 and 125 lbs.

Totally agree!  I've been flagging like crazy because their crappy reviews takes up the whole screen and I still see that those people haven't been flagged by the staff or expert members.

I actually flagged the worst of his reviews about 5 minutes before you pointed out this gem.... But I resisted the urge to keep flagging after the first.

Correct-- if 5 people click the "No" then it flags it as spam.

I think only about 5% of all the reviews are trustworthy and legit.  If you click the reviews tab on the community feed its just random names who review 3 items within 5 minutes. It's so aggravating.

I just started reviewing/posting in the forums.  I like most, if not all, of you can't stand bad reviews.  Personally, I am really trying to make my reviews well stated and full of useful information.

I've been trying to find a new Coat for my wife, and I'd say 95% of female reviews are: "makes you look cute" or a variation thereof, it is really, REALLY frustrating, hence my reasoning for clicking on this thread to begin with.

My problem is this:  Homers gonna' hate on your reviews.  Example:  if I write a negative review about a super-popular item (imagine knocking on the Burton Moto, or the Sierra RCrew), even if it is well stated and nicely informed, the people who think it is the best product ever are going to give me a "no" in a heartbeat.  Pow!  My quality review gets marked as spam, and I look like a tool.

Thoughts?

Haha, he posts questions in pretty much everyone's classified ad and never buys but no surprise since he is like 15 year old and is a point hussy. 

I don't think anybody will flag your review if it is negative even if the person is a hardcore lover of that brand, but they might certainly post a response to your review.

On a similar note, you should talk about brand reviews. I want to see something YOU wrote, not just checking off the options TruSnow gives you. Snow4life and East4life (suspect? they comment on the same threads, similar names and used to have the same location) have shown up on every brand review page I have seen, and this is what they all look like. After seeing them, I went to his page and it appears he has reviewed almost every brand in this way

this is useless when I'm trying to learn about the quality of their product or customer service

Funny.
Because one word (SPAM) to describe an inadequate review is useless feedback. How does that help an individual improve future reviews? What would be helpful is to actually describe the reason it was marked as spam. Maybe link to this page?

I know this sounds stupid but I'd actually love a sock review.  I have great big crazy sized calves and time and time again I buy a sock that's far too narrow for a person that doesn't have chicken legs and has some muscle.

That being said - if there is something TO say about them... then do it.

for example:
If you have muscular calves, these socks may not fit properly.  Maybe try xxx brand instead.

or:
These socks are great for most riding conditions, however they are very thick, so if you prefer thinner socks, or are looking for a sock to wear in the spring, these are not for you.

Etc... the point being... any review should be value adding, and if it's not... don't review it.

Wow... A big slew of bad reviews out this weekend.  
I believe the old Snow4Life has changed his name (not his pic though).  There were two hoody reviews posted by this individual with in a few minutes.  Both of them stated they were his "go to hoody."
Is there a bad review hammer out there that Doug and the rest of the experts can swing?

"Amazing Board" 3/12/2011
    
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No 

  • Name: 2011 Burton Custom Snowboard - Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Light Weight, Killer Graphics, Top Coat Shell
  • Cons:  Binding System,

Experience:   Had a chance to take a look at this upclose today at the Snowboarding shop, and I must say I am quite impressed. It looks as though the binding system is a strip? I didn't get a chance to really ask questions, but it looks to be a problem with my standard holes. The board itself, looks amazing. The graphics are bright and vivid, and I tested the flex, it definitly has some pop to it. Retail I think it was 525 today, with 40% off at The Loft. So I would say, try to find this at your local store
