Yeah it would be really nice if when I go to read a review it doesnt just say some thing like, great *blank* and looks cool.

Something thats describes what makes the *blank* so great or not so great.

Well put. I don't see the point in being biased towards any one brand. Base reviews on performance, feel, anddurability.

What an ironic post. This kid's reviews are horrible. He should be blocked from writing reviews. He has one that says. "
Hard to go wrong with these bad boys... get em." That's his whole review. Please go flag this guy people. Wish I could flag his posts too.

So true! There really should be some rule about not being able to review products you've only watched someone else use.  I mean, I want stylish stuff, but not if it doesn't perform well!

Yeah, pointless forum posts are even worse than pointless reviews in my opinion because they tend to get people off topic and then the conversation starts suckig and people lose interest.

Its actually pretty easy. Here, let me write a review on the rome agent rocker.

I took this board all over my local mountain, its stable, has effortless pop (its got a nice big sweet spot), it can handle pretty much anything you throw at it and it wont wash or fold out on you. I wasnt a big fan of c2 since it comes with mtx (if albeit mellowed down), but romes version of it really makes for a playful fun ride. Sure, its a little less poppier and aggressive than both C2 and R+C and maybe its a bit too high [or low, im making this shit up] to feel like a genuine hybrid, but honestly, they have it DIALED IN for cruising and mucking around. If you want a do it all board with a bit of a lean towards fun and freestyle, or you just want a board that turns the whole resort into a massive park feature without having to worry about washing or the board folding or sliding out, then you HAVE to get on this. Its a sick deck. Hell, i havent even mentioned how smooth it feels in pow. Believe me, when itdrops, youll be smiling your god damned face off! This board is your honest to god do it all quiver killer! it rips, it jibs, it pops, and it slays everything the resort has to offer. Seriously, pick it up now!
 

There you go: Factory assembled generic 'jack of all trades' board review. Way more informative than about 80% of the shit out there, and yet not a bit of it is true or based on anything i actually legitimately know about the board. I have NO IDEA how good it is in ANY terrain. I havent ridden it, none of my friends have. Ive barely read anyone on here talking about it. Its a DODDLE. Of course, if i was sly, id go have a look at the rome page and then throw in some of their buzz words and say some shit like "and it really delivers! you [rephrase market spiel] and it does exactly that!" 

Generic reviewing is a piece of piss. I could game the shit out of this system no problem. But i dont, because im not evil... Instead i tell you on forums all about boards ive never ridden like i have some kind of actual knowledge on them, based entirely on their stats and some reviews other people wrote about them. EXPERT!!! (at spinning a bit of a yarn to be honest) :p

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED (DTJ just challenged me in chat to write a bullshit review of a beanie). 

Rightyo, lets pick the first beanie from burton i can find. Why burton? Why the hell not? 

Step 1: read all the other reviews and rewrite the gist... thats too easy though, so ill pick one with hardly any reviews. 


Ive had this for a few months now, its not exactly my favourite beanie out there and doesnt really have much going for it, but it does the basics. Its really the other stuff though that makes me give it a bit of a poor score. The first problem i had with it was the stitching in the label. It didnt take long before it started leaving a massive hole right next to it. Thankfully trhe inner layer is still intact though. Im not sure what they do, but this is definitely not the first burton beanie ive had thats done this. Secondly, it did kinda lose  its shape really quickly. I dont have a particularly big head, and i havent used it all that much to be honest, but it feels like im swimming in acrylic here. The design wasnt entirely flattering to begin with (it felt a touch big), but now it looks pretty much shapeless. Finally though, and on a but more positive note, we come to the representation. It looks kinda bland in the picture - a brown beanie with a few yellow x-stitches. But once it arrived i was pleasantly surprised to find the colors were far more vivid and rich than the picture maybe leads you to believe. Its actually looks FAR FAR better in real life! So overall i think its alright for those first few times, but youll probably chuck it in the back of the cupboard once it starts losing its shape. For the price? probably about right if im honest. 

*** (out of 5).
 
Always be extremely suspicious of peoples reviews out there. Its easy to make shit up. And when you have a system that gives you an incentive to do it, well, you know... Keep a critical eye, bullshit isnt as easy to spot as you might think :)

so in the meantime is that what we were trying to accomplish here is say that it IS possible to do a decent review of somethings, but please dont do a "it looks cool, ive got a big head and it fits"

IF, and thats a big if, you decide to review a beanie.... please consider that we all know what a beanie is and what it does (keeps your head warm, derp!), so take some time to tell us something about THIS PARTICULAR beanie and why it is that you like it or dont like it......

" its warm and looks great" is not acceptable!

I'm afraid to write a review now with the high standards being set. I'm not the greatest wordsmith so next time I do review something I'll try to get an editor and proof reader to make sure it's top notch.  
I think it'd be nice if someone finds a review they don't feel is top notch to maybe write the reviewer and tell them where they could improve it before it gets flagged.  I'm not talking about the obvious- "It looks cool." type review that obviously is just a point grab, but ppl that tried to write a half way decent review but came up short.  Not everyone is good at translating how they feel about a product.  Some ppl are just bad at communication.
This forum is helpful as to what ppl are looking for in a review, but if someone doesn't write a perfect review I don't think we should jump down their throat right off the bat.  Now dude that just tried to lay down reviews (yesterday) for like 5 pair of bindings he obviously never used, that's a different story...

the problem with asking ppl to rework or rewrite their review is this.... there is no edit function for the reviews.... 
so either its gonna get flagged or its not.....

so take a few moments to figure out what you want to write and write it well the first time.

There's been a ton lately where they say "I haven't used these yet, I'll get back to you."
So, they're trying to get 10 points out of the same item??

How would  "I haven't used these yet, I'll get back to you." be considered a review.
that should surely be marked as spam

btw there SHOULD be an edit button for your own reviews.
ie..you liked it at first then started to develop a hate relationship with that product

that is also why you shouldnt write a rewview, until you have used the item for a while, very thoroughly! this gives you time to develop your love-hate relationship....

no need to edit, just take the time first to use it first before reviewing it.

I really like the new layout that adds bike, skateboarding, and all that at the top but it wont let me review the skateboarding section. I click on write a review and it refreshes the page.
Just wondering if it is blocked from reviewing skateboarding stuff or it is a glitch or something is wrong with my computer.
The skateboarding stuff it sold at good prices here and it would be cool to see TruSnow become a bigger website for online shopping.

Dude, you don't need all the time to interpret it. It's called Google Translate. Takes couple seconds. Copy and paste and there you go. Problem solved.

Hello. I usually write reviews at Spanish. I could do it in English but do not speak the language and translators are not entirely accurate, that you can see it in this comment in which I used an online translator. In addition, most of the reviews are in English. I think it is more useful to write a review to Spanish that one among hundreds in English. If we observe well, Spain has nearly a thousand users in this forum and also are Latin Americans. I am a client of this trade from 2009 and entertains me give my opinion or advice, as well as others like control reviews without having ever made a purchase on this site. There are also expert users in this forum, which dominate the Spanish and English and can let them work to verify if the reviews on Spanish have an acceptable content. No one is angry, is just to clarify. Best regards

Yeah i think this review system is awesome too, it benefits the giver and the receiver at the same time.
Although I do think it would be better for people especially the ones whos actually used the product to write a detailed review for the future buyers. Youd want to find out every good and bad thing about something youre gonna buy before you spend your precious money on it right? I try to write very detailed reviews and just put down all kinds of thoughts I have on the product

Doug,

I have read this post before and I actually emailed you about this exact topic. I understand you are busy but I would really like to get my review privileges back. I have purchased so much stuff from TruSnow over the years and see myself as a dedicated part of this snowboard community.

yaya34 - Doug is no longer here, you will have to address the support staff with your concerns.

Some of your reviews were for items that you didn't even use at the time of the review, plus you reviewed the Stunt 2 times.  You also reviewed bindings that you "researched" but did not actually use.  Plus a review of a magazine subscription.  Any time I see "I haven't even taken these on a mountain yet" the word SPAM magically appears in my head... I can see why your reviews were spammed.  I don't think you have a leg to stand on with your complaint about being banned from reviews.

Doug and a few others started up their own snowboard company, Thrive.  I bought the Thrive Renegade, it's a magnificent board.  Use the link below to create an account:
