A 'Sic Guide' for Bosses
Review of Best And Worst Excuses For Missing Work by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Sniffs out the true nature of brown-nosing
Disadvantages: Generally all guides are designed for dummies in this case bosses

My earliest amusement of witnessing an inexcusable excuse was on Friday 20th November 1987, a fellow student huffed and puffed with exhaustion, reeking of ‘Marlboro’ to our lecturer stating; “Sorry, I’m half a day late Sir, I was caught up in the fir ... Read review

Advantages: Dumb people
Disadvantages: Dumb people

The best and worst excuses for missing work – aren't they the same thing? I've done front desk work at a hotel for nearly nine months now, and I've heard some good ones in my time here from the housekeepers and front desk staff alike, so it is pretty easy ... Read review

Original excuses for not going to work
Review of Best And Worst Excuses For Missing Work by linzee_loulabelle

Advantages: Funny at times
Disadvantages: 1 star because people don't go to work

Before becoming a manager, I never really had any dealings with people ringing in sick or not coming to work for whatever reason. If people did ring in sick or didn’t turn up, I never found out why because it didn’t make any difference to me. However, now ... Read review

You got to laugh, haven't you?
Review of Best And Worst Excuses For Missing Work by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: The advantage is time off work.
Disadvantages: The fibs you have to tell!

I'm sure we've all done it in the past, phoning in sick with some excuse. And I'm also quite certain whatever excuse you've phoned up with, they've heard it all before. But there are some days when you just can't face going into work, especially if it's ... Read review

Review of What do you think about the Dooyoo redesign? by thedevilinme

Advantages: We can still cash out
Disadvantages: Its a mess

As all dooyooers know we have been treated appalling over the site re-launch. Even members who have been there at the start (and we are talking the last century here) have been shown the green hand. 90% of writers appear not to be able to post up work and ... Read review

If I could even get at my miles I'd just donate them to a charity and be done with the whole thing. by spanielize
I'm not around on here now but saw an alert for your post and it intrigued me. I left Dooyoo when they changed the format, all was just too much effort for too little reward, navigation is near impossible, facilities that I relied on and liked gone and I cannot read reviews as they stand, I like paragraphs. by dawnymarie

Many years ago, the Ciao site did also include paid surveys! They got split into a separate company, if I remember rightly x by jo-1976

Advantages: could tackle spam reviews, help new users and encourage participation
Disadvantages: may involve a whole-system overhaul

Fix What Needs Fixing, Leave the Rest Alone
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by anonymili

Advantages: site works well in many areas already
Disadvantages: some areas need working on

Having been a member of the site since 2002 I thought I’d throw in my feelings about improvements I’d like to see on the site. I personally find Ciao a pretty good platform to write on already but as we’ve been asked to share our thoughts on possible impr ... Read review

I don't like the new homepage much, either. If you want to get to the "index" to suggest a new product (for instance), it's very confusing to navigate. I can only assume all these people who write "nonsense" reviews search via the main search box; I've been here 5 years and the new layout totally confuses me! by KateHurst

Five steps to perfection
Review of 5 improvements you would like to see on Ciao by hogsflesh

Advantages: I think improvements are needed
Disadvantages: I doubt the right improvements will be implemented

I hope Ciao realises that its problems go beyond cosmetic tweaks to the friends list, nice though such things would be. Let’s talk about search engine optimisation (it's a big part of my 'real life' job). I don't know your business plan, Ciao. But you ... Read review

A successful site really requires minimal human intervention on a daily basis, therefore (2) 'More editorial staff' would be a site hindrance rather than an improvement. More doesn't necessary mean better! Business models not dissimilar to Ciao's require complexities to be ironed out, you won't get that via hiring editorial staff. Monies maybe better spent on re-developing a technical sales team who're affiliated with independent web-based media / app designers, could be the answer - ultimately the addition will aid costs. by 1st2thebar

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

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
