Hey just a suggestion for the reviews section of the site.
I am currently in the market to get a new gun and have been doing alot of research through the reviews section. While there are many good reviews on the site there are also many useless and terrible ones that provide you with no information. Would it be possible to get a moderator to go though and just filter through the reviews (deleting the bad ones)? This would save people the hassle of going through reviews that are more/less just sentences being typed up to get the top reviewer badge, as well as make the ratings more accurate. It would also force people to actually take time and make a honest review of the product they are reviewing because there is a risk that if they just type 3 letters there review will be deleted before anyone has the ability to rate it (for the top reviewer badge). I am aware that there is a system present for rating the user's reviews but I feel that it is just too dumbed down as you can rate it a amount of stars but cannot comment on why you rated it as you did. I am also aware that this suggestion would lead for less reviews to be present on the website but it would also, in my opinion, clean up the reviews on the site making the review section more reliable for buyers and insure the buyers that the ratings they look at are from people that have had experience with the gun, as forcing them to write a better review helps to insure that they know what they are talking about.
A great example of your typical bad review is here:
This tells me absolutely nothing about this user's experience with the nt11 other then its an "awesome gun" with "maintenance"
I could write this and have never owned a nt11 in my life.
A good review that is actually helpful:
This review on the other hand tells me alot about this user's experience with the nt11's accuracy, feel, maintenance, efficiency, etc. and allows me an insight on why the gave the gun the ratings that they did.
I appreciate the time and consideration of anyone who reads this.
