Ciao: a website not without problems
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by mi_wa

Advantages: My thoughts
Disadvantages: Possible alienation of peers

1. Do not be pointless When is the last time you looked up a review to buy something? I knew I wanted to buy something. True story. So I looked it up on Amazon, checked the star ratings and looked at the lower rated reviews. After confirming the ... Read review

Interesting ideas. Personally I don't find Paypal at all convenient; being paid directly into your own bank account is a big plus. by brokenangelkisses
Some excellent points here, especially regarding the padding out of reviews. That's not what the consumer wants to read but everyone does it to get those precious E's by Gingerkitty

Beauty is skin deep, unless you have really bad tattoos
Review of Member Advice on Tattoos by ljackson24

Advantages: Sometimes they look damn sexy.

The world is divided into two kinds of people: those who have tattoos, and those who are afraid of people with tattoos - Author Unknown What is a tattoo? Tattoos are a type of body modification whereby a needle is used to mark the skin with ink. ... Read review

Very well summed up - the padded review which consists of going off piste at will and you end up knowing far more about family members and friends than the product / service, doesn't help any online consumer; yet the 'E' rate gets routinely clicked, regardless of content. Wonderful point. by 1st2thebar
I like the fact it is UK based - you only have to look at some other sites that allow world wide contributions to see what drivel is there. I think there should be a minimum length of 400/500 and possibly a maximum of 1500 words by catsholiday

My suggestions
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by xmum2fourx

Advantages: May make the site easier to use
Disadvantages: Often ends up messing up the site

1. Photos Photos add a lot to a review and I wish it was easier to upload them. When it comes to me adding them it does not matter if it is from my phone or from my digital camera I always have to resize them. While I work online and you would expect me ... Read review

The Search Bar and newly-suggested items is an interesting one, I read in another of these "5 improvement" reviews about a section of Ciao where one can see recently-added items without a review and effectively gazump the original suggester's first review bonus... Another case of disjointed thinking by the Ciao programming/testing teams, perhaps? Good review! by pgn0
Another very sensible take on this one. I find my pictures upload ok on Firefox - they do need to be downsized further than you'd expect though. R. by RICHADA

Towards The Eternal Betterment Of Ciao
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by 29th_Candidate

Advantages: Would go a long way towards ridding Ciao of troublemakers and site abusers
Disadvantages: Might result in costly litigation

Some Initial Considerations Having been a member of Ciao since its beginning, I've had a lot of time to consider possible site improvements. One would think that my many years of hardcore Ciao community experience and review-writing wisdom accumu ... Read review

anonymii: There are other ways to communicate serious and helpful points than to directly bang people over the head with them in an unnecessarily serious manner. This is a Ciao Cafe topic, not a product review. by 29th_Candidate
It's helpful in that it's somewhat amusing but it doesn't seem you've taken the subject matter seriously enough for me to give you a higher rating. I'm sure you won't mind :) by anonymili

Consumer Power or Reviewer Resentment?
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by pgn0

Advantages: Less administrative overhead on Ciao sysadmins
Disadvantages: Change can be disruptive...

So what irks me about Ciao that I think merits a change? Ciao has been through many changes in my time here, some positive, some mediocre, and some canned completely (the initial foray into improving the text formatting feature for reviews, anyone re ... Read review

Adverts sure can be annoying. I left Ciao for six months once because an infamous Colgate ad was interfering with people's ability to rate. by Dentolux
I'm heartened by your faith in the place. I see it as a good community but a very poor review site indeed. It needs many annoying features removed such as ones you've mentioned, and most fundamental of all, if it really is intended as a consumer resource, someone to do the most basic search engine optimisation so reviews come up in searches. I Googled 'review' of an item I'd reviewed and Ciao came nowhere in the top 50 results! by Silverback

Don't do a dooyoo!
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by Marge3781

Advantages: I would love some added tools to make searching easier.
Disadvantages: Improvements often end up making things worse rather than better.

After the decline and fall of dooyoo recently, the very thought of Ciao making major changes as well was enough to motivate me to write my first review anywhere in weeks. I sincerely hope we will still have one site to depend on for useful consumer review ... Read review

"Don't go changing to try and please me"
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by koshkha

Advantages: It's nice to be asked. I hope Ciao are listening
Disadvantages: Please don't do anything too radical - we love you as you are.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it My first instinct when I saw this topic was “Don’t change a thing – stay as sweet as you are”. But after thinking for a while, I realised there are a few tweaks I’d like to see. None of these are major - failure to imp ... Read review

Ah thank you for explaining the category payout thing - I've noticed recently that items have been changing in level and never knew why. Now I know :-) x by Gingerkitty
Good ideas, except one caveat to the exclusivity on suggestions thing: I don't always suggest products because I want to review them, sometimes it's because I want to read others' reviews of them. Perhaps the person who makes the suggestion should be able to select whether they want an exclusive period or not. by a-true-ben

Disadvantages: None for me at all!

One of life's greatest pleasures....food, glorious food!
Review of Top 10 Foods by CelticSoulSister

Advantages: Everything other than too much of it makes you fat
Disadvantages: Too much of it makes you fat

When I was very little, I had no interest in food. My mum all but had to force-feed me, as even her excellent cooking couldn’t tempt me, nor could her artistic efforts at making a meal look attractive such as the curvature of a sausage representing a smi ... Read review

Review of Moral Dilemmas by CelticSoulSister

Advantages: Being able to talk about my favourite subject.....me!
Disadvantages: Some of them are impossible dilemmas

This one has been going for years - I answered it long ago (dig into my reviews if you are interested). I give you excellent because I admire honest answers which these are clearly. I can't go with you on the prison camp one though - as a father myself that one is too difficult. by buzios

Wenger's 500th game with Arsenal was against Jose Mourinho of Chelsea. His 1000th was also against Mourinho. He has yet to beat him; the thumping 6-0 at Stamford Bridge a record win for Jose in England and now 11 matches unbeaten between the two. Mourinho ... Read review
