QUOTE(Webmaster @ Jul 4 2006, 11:18 AM) *

We have found it necessary to add some more security to the website when it comes to approving reviews. All members will now have to submit a minimum of three (3) different campgrounds before any of their reviews will be posted on the website. If you have not seen a recent review you submitted posted on the website that is because it is in a holding queue until the five review quota has been met and then they will automatically transfer to the approval queue and will then be posted. Any member that has already posted five or more will see no change. Sorry we have to do this but some campground owner's/employees think they don't have to follow the rules of this website and continue to try to post great reviews about their campground. The "great" campgrounds will never have to do that as they will always receive positive reviews from their customers. smile.gif We have caught several and will continue to do so to try to keep this website as it was intended.

I can tell you that right now it is only 3 reviews that have to be submitted, but the webmaster has said he might lift this in the future (if he hasn't already). I do not know how you can look back to see what you've done. Maybe someone else can answer that question.

You don't have to stay in 5 parks every year. You do have to post 3 reviews (it could be 1 a year or 1 every other year or 2 this year 1 next, etc). Your reviews will stay in the waiting stage until you reach the 3.

HarrietLD,

You just said that your reviews are not appearing, but then you said you can click on one of your reviews and see the others. If you can see them doesn't that mean they have been posted? I thought you were asking how to see them if they are still on hold. I know you can look back at the ones that have been posted, but I do not know how to see them if they are still in the holding stage.

Great thoughts!

I've been on this forum for a long time and I just feel totally offended by this new rule...I think it's totally inappropriate and serves no real purpose.

i absolutly dissagree. for crying out loud, you do five reviews the first week of a two week trip. if you can't come up with five simple reviews in your camping life i doubt you have the r.v. ing experience to be doing a review of an r.v. park anyway.

be offended and flame away, i think the administrator is correct.

now, if we can just get him to post all ratings and not pull the ones he doesn't agree with.

i rated a park in calif. just to warn other motorcyclists the park was NOT motorcycle friendly. it was never posted. i guess the administrator isn't "motorcycle friendly" either.

I just read a review of a park that was not motorcycle friendly, just in the last week I believe. It was a coastal park I think. Which one was it. I don't think they pull them if they don't agree, I really don't think the webmaster has a personal interest in any of the parks.

Just my opinion,

i absolutly apologize ! i just checked and you are correct, it did get posted. a thousand pardons, i will learn to check before putting my keyboard in gear. this is the most valuable website on the internet for someone who travels as much as i do.

One reason that some reviews are never posted is that they are in either all lower or all upper case, and the moderators would need to retype much of the text to make them readable.

When submitting a review, please read the "Review Notice" that appears before you can post. It asks that you check your spelling and punctuation, avoid using either all lower case or all upper case, etc. Reviews that require extensive editing to make them readable have little chance of getting posted.

I personally believe some of you may be over reacting over the idea that some ratings might be posted by camp ground operators themselves.
There is a greater potential that the reviews were not, because most camp grounds operators simply are not that clever, probably never even heard about this site, don't have time for the B.S., are too busy, and may already be rated directly through a site such as Woodall's or Good Sam who personally inspects many campgrounds they inspect. Either way, this site is simply a guild, not a know it all site. Most negative reviews have little or no impact at all on a campgrounds bottom line at the end of the day (if you build it, people will come) but rather allows angry campers to blow off steam to the cyber world.

As a solution to to this concern, several others have suggested that the web master restructure the reviewing process all together by ALLOWING instead of EXCLUDING camp grounds operators in the posting process. They also should be ALLOWED to RESPOND to COMPLAINTS and be given DUE PROCESS in America much like how the Better Business Bureau does it. I personally believe that if a camp ground operator discovers a derogotory report out there that they should be offered a chance to explain their side so we have the complete story instead of just half the story.

I'm willing to bet that many people who camp understand Business and understand this CONCEPT. If I were a Camp Grounds operator and some site was allowing people so defame my good reputation and assassinate my good character with out having a chance to correct the situation I would seriously consider my litigation options like they do in Hollywood California. KWIM IGGY?

See if the web master posts or deletes this article...

Actually, I have run into campground owners who *are* "smart enough" to read this site. There was one in Sequim, WA I stayed at. I mentioned RVparkreviews.com, and that their park got mostly positive reviews except for ONE negative. The owner mentioned that they do read this site, and "they knew who the negative person was...." The park owner explained their side of that "negative" review.

Also, I personally know another park manager/owner who reads this site. I'm not going to reveal what their ID is.

Plus, we have seen another park owner/manager on this site who told us all that they were a park manager/owner, "Parkview" or something like that....

Ok, that's three I know of......
