Now that the election is over, we as Americans can focus on the larger issue at hand--finding out where to monger and learning how to write better, more informative reviews for our peers. Many people e-mail RubMaps asking why their reviews weren't approved. I could go on and on about why our editors reject reviews, but the chief reasons why reviews are rejected are as follows:
a) Not enough detail. Fellow mongers, please take the time to fill out the appropriate boxes, and write more than one sentence. Just because it says minimum 100 characters doesn't mean that that's all the maximum. Be descriptive. Be narrative. Tell us what happened. Get the name of the girl that massaged you or gave you blue balls--so that the next monger can be more informed.
b) Too many consistently negative reviews from a non-trusted monger. Our editors constantly look for patterns when choosing to approve/reject reviews. If they see a monger consistently giving bad reviews to a bunch of massage locations that they keep frequenting...its a bit suspicious. Would you go to the same restaurant over and over again, if you repeatedly throw up after eating there?
c) ALL CAPS. NOBODY WANTS TO READ SOMETHING IN ALL CAPS AND IN TECH TALK THIS COULD BE CONSTRUED AS ME YELLING AT YOU. NUFF SAID.
d) brok3n Engrish. It's one thing to have a few grammatical mistakes here or there, but it's completely another if you are writing the review like you are in elementary school. Mongering is not a cheap habit. According to a few third party sites which triangulate RubMap's web demographics, 75% of you guys make over $75,000 a year. That means you should be able to write at least at a high school level. Please note: that condition D does not apply to most of you--normally it only applies to the owner of an establishment trying to make up a review on their nonexistent, non-hot workers that don't work there.
There you have it folks...these are the key reasons why reviews get rejected...that being said. Over 75% of the reviews you have submitted over the years have been accurate and dead on. Thank you and look forward to reading many more.
