Looking over the Editor Review archives you can see that five different users had their reviews closed before anyone even posted anything. Pointless much? The point of editor review is to give contructive feedback to users. I propose that we state there must be at least one constructive comment by another user before a review can be closed.


Support - As nominator -— Enigma 01:41, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Those reviews had been open and inactive for two weeks, which is more than enough time for a user to give a review of the user if they had wanted to. Leaving it continuously open, waiting for someone to comment, would be a waste of time (in my opinion). C.ChiamTalk 02:15, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

So constructive critism is a waste of time, then? Is that what you're saying? --— Enigma 02:20, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
No, I never said that. Leaving it open for say, 1 or 2 weeks, may not bring any comments and thus would be a waste of time. C.ChiamTalk 04:58, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
With this proposal it will speed things up, say someones in line for an editor review, they will leave constructive critisism on other reviews so they are eligable to be closed and the waiter-in-line will get their review more quickly. It's a win-win, the reviewee got what they were looking for, and the line-waiter gets to their review more quickly. Get it? — Enigma 06:08, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Incentivising the system is not going to improve anything. In essence you will be forcing someone who wants a review to formulate an opinion when in reality they may not have any experience with the user in question or could just make something up to get their review faster.

Good point, Tebuddy. 2 weeks is more than ample time for anyone to leave a comment, really. C.ChiamTalk 08:06, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Comment - It is already supposed to be so: "Sections with at least one review will be archived at RuneScape:Editor Review/Archive after two weeks of inactivity." Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 09:58, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Oops Concerned. C.ChiamTalk 11:04, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Closed - Seeing as this rule is already as such, and some of the archived reviews were an oversight on my part. C.ChiamTalk 14:01, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
