Advantages Made me think a lot
Disadvantages Made me think possibly too much
NB: Before I begin, I will say that whoever first compiled this questionnaire was the one who placed it in the "Everything That Starts With E" category.Yet again whilst browsing through everyone's reviews, I come across another whereby all I need do is fill in the answers, and I have swiped this particular one from Jonathanb. I'm intrigued as to why I can never find them all by myself in Ciao's Cafe, despite laborious and thorough hunting.
As is always the case where we have to choose from A, B or C for an answer, it invariably is the case that none of them match my own feelings/experience and sometimes the closest of the choices available is still a million miles away from being suitable for me. Still, I won't let that put me off - so, let's see what the following has to offer....I'm typing it completely adlib and have no idea of what I'm going to say until I get to each individual question.1. Someone in your COT has written the best review they have ever written. You can see that they have made an exceptional effort. Do you.
A: Give it an exceptional to show them you can see how hard they worked ?
B: Give them a rating based on content and layout
C: Give them the same rating as everyone else did . After all the majority rules.
2. You read a review which you see has loads of exceptional ratings and you really cannot see why because it’s not that special. Do youA: Give it an exceptional. Why not ? Everyone else did.
Answer: B. I do find that a lot of extremely long reviews on Ciao receive masses of E rates - possibly because of the sheer length of them which invokes the feeling that just because something's long enough to put War & Peace to shame, it must therefore be brilliant and everyone then clicks the E button. However, on the opposite side of the coin, I also see some very short reviews which I believe succinctly include everything anyone could possibly want to know about a product, yet they receive mostly 'helpfuls'.....adding fuel to the concept that for a lot of readers/raters, size does matter. Size isn't an issue for me though and if I feel something is worthy of an E, then I'll rate it as such, regardless of how anybody else has rated it. I'm not a crowd follower, as what's the point in giving an opinion via the rating button, which is merely the collective opinion of all the other raters?
