Review of How to write opinions by sully_5

Advantages: a lot of products and topics to review, other opinions ,it's a useful training for writing skills
Disadvantages: revenues are not so high, sometimes reviews are short or poor

When i was young writing and creating my own reviews was one my dreams. Well, actually i'm not working in a publishing company that produces dozens of reviews but, on the other hand, we have "ciao!". "Ciao!" is organized around genres and types of produc ... Read review

Im sorry, but the topic is "How to write opinions", and while you share a little about Ciao, you gave no insight on how to write an opinion :-( by Scotlass712

Rating standards - have we all become softies?
Review of Member Advice On Reading, Rating and Commenting by craggybuk

Advantages: Rating gets us noticed which is needed to get your own rates
Disadvantages: Rating is not accurate. Too many overinflated rates

Throughout all of my time using Ciao, the one thing that has frustrated me the most is rating. Now you’d think this is a strange statement from me considering all of my review do well but I think there are so many inconsistencies with rating, it does make ... Read review

Interesting review by sazzydan
All valid points, but the tendency to rating inflation is built into the reciprocal rating system and human social interraction. I can remember when the E rating was first introduced because practically all reviews received the then top VH rating. At first Es were given very sparingly, but I can see them going the way of VH in due course, and it's unlikely anything can be done to prevent this happening. by torr

Gotta love people who fill their review with long lists of ingredients or detailed corporate histories. It's usually a sign that they're reviewing some humdrum supermarket product that there's not a lot to say about. Regards, Mike. by MikeOCarroll

The Culture of E
Review of How to rate and comment by Brummie699

Advantages: Lots of Es could lead to a prize
Disadvantages: Taking Es is clearly not good for you

I don't think guestbook thanks is anything more than people being happy and polite in the begining, and then kinda just caught on so all newer members feel they have to follow suit if you get my meaning!! I hope you do as I'm not totally sure I do :p by bones78
I thnk the rating system is a nonsense. When I was a high pointed 'yellow' dot, and soon to be bronze, I got all manner of people fauning over my reviews. When I returned to a white dot, I barely got a read, let alone a VH, lol. I am not point obsessed, and really only write Ciao reviews because I like writing. That said, how often is something really Exceptional? I barely use the E unless I feel that someone has taken a long time to write their review, and researched it well. Photos alone don't do it for me - we can all upload. I also almost never give a negative point, so always a helpful or above, unless it has been plagiarised. Anyone who has taken the trouble to write a review, however short, should be rewarded. I always send thanks for an E - but as I dont' get many, it doesn't take me long, lol!! by orlando-revisiting

The Circle of Trust 'CoT' is a way of assisting you to find the reviews on a particular topic which are likely to be most useful to you . . . You add people (other members) to your CoT whose opinions you trust; when you are looking for information, you can choose 'see all reviews' and then 'sort by Circle of Trust' so the reviews by your 'trusted members' appear first (in order of their ratings), then those they trust, before everyone else's reviews . . . That way, when there are more than a few reviews on a subject you can easily find a review you can trust . . . It is also used to encourage developing writers and to thank others for help . . . as you can only 'trust' 100 persons (otherwise it would be difficult to be used to rank other reviews), it is a good thing to choose your 100 carefully and review your members at intervals . . . you can have thousands trusting your reviews but can only personally trust 100 . . . ♥ jesi ♥ by jesi
Quite right too, but proof is the issue I suppose. I'd be interested in hearing how others rate/trust, are they all like Ciao ? by JimFiggs
