There are a few places we visited before joining here that people haven't reviewed. Presume a partial review would still be welcome. We didn't know this site and what might be needed.

I'm also uncertain about how to list our little 13' fiberglass camper. Travel trailer includes much bigger campers. Prior to now, we used a pop-up. Presume that should be mentioned in a review.

What else should a newbie know when posting here? I've read some reviews and discussions, but still am not sure about posting reviews and discussions.

We appreciate your interest in sharing your experiences and knowledge by providing reviews of parks you have previously stayed in. However, we have found that the character of RV parks is very "fluid" because it depends greatly on the staff, many of whom are transient. Older reviews often tend to be less representative of current conditions since even the maintenance of a park is heavily dependent on who is managing it.

Therefore, we have established 6 months as the cut-off for submission of reviews and we cannot change that rule to accommodate the wishes of a single member. Thank you for becoming a member of RVPR and we look forward to receiving your reviews.

You are quite correct in that the conditions of a lot of campgrounds are "fluid". That is why I ignore reviews that are more than one year old. Since you have a six month cut-off I have to ask why you don't remove reviews that are several years old? I can understand if you would have to manually remove them. Just curious. Thanks.

As you may be aware, this website is currently in the process of working on a major update and modernization. One thing that has been discussed is calculating a numerical score for a park made up an average of individual scores possibly weighted so that newer reviews will have more impact on the average than will older ones. This would have the effect of discounting older reviews and will permit a park to more readily show improvement without actually removing any old reviews.
