Revamped Reviews Section
#1
Hello,

As of today, we have made a few changes to the Reviews section, which we hope will result in it getting used more! As always, we appreciate your input and feedback on these changes as these are your forums as much as they are ours.

Here are the changes we have made a short explanation as to why we decided to make this change:
  • Renamed the section from "Free VPS Reviews" to "VPS Reviews" - This will become clear when I explain the next couple of points
  • You are now allowed to post reviews for any type of VPS, paid or free - We hope this will mean we can see more reviews from VPS providers that do not give out free VPSs.
  • You no longer are required to put nopoints tags on reviews of VPSs that are not from FreeVPS - We realise that you put a lot of effort into writing good reviews, so we want you get rewarded for your work.

To make things as clear as possible for you, we have written a simpler set of rules for the revamped reviews section, that you can find posted as a forum announcement in the reviews section.

We also hope to introduce a sub section to allow you post reviews for other related services such as web hosting, mail hosting, etc, paid or free.
This will be implemented in the next 24-48 hours when myself and the other staff members have discussed suitable rules to put in place for this new section, if any are needed on top of the general forum rules.

We trust you will welcome the changes outlined here, and let us know what you think by replying to this thread.

Have a nice day!


Best Regards,
Chris

Sounds OK.
Lifting the nopoints tags requirement and the warning sanction for superficial reviews should promote more activity.

The 'reviews for other related services' section idea, as it looks like, might have some collision with existing 'free/low cost related services' sections, so clear distinction is important IMO.

The Free/Low cost related services forums are more aimed towards advertising a service, rather than a member posting their personal experiences with the service in a more detailed way, (since it is part of the Advertising and Sharing section), but I understand fully the point you are trying to make and your feedback will be used to decide how we proceed with a new section. Thanks for your input Smile

I am just wondering, what kind of other service(s) will be allowed to get reviewed? That should be listed, IMO.
Thank you FreeVPS and ZXPlay for VPS 7 and 19

I gave a couple of examples in the original post, but you can review just about any other type of service that is related to hosting.
Web hosting, mail hosting, DNS services, online storage providers, etc.

It has now been a week since this was introduced, so I am now closing this thread. If you have anything to say about anything discussed here, feel free to PM me.
