Well, we could provide pointers, however we also don't want everything to be formulaic and allow for free expression of ideas and the review. We understand some will be shorter than others. Hopefully members use the Star rating as their guide on what to talk about during their write up. 

With that said, if we start to see a lot of single line or word reviews, we'll look a implementing some measures to dissuade that behavior.

Here's a decent example of what not to do.

I meant more to the actual title of the review. I think you are going to get a lot of people submitting reviews for the same equipment with different titles is all....Reviews are up to the reviewer....titles can be controlled.

Mods, my review has been posted.  Thanks for letting me help!

I found no bugs or errors in the submission process.  Pictures uploaded fine, the resizing feature worked well, text formatting worked as expected.  I am going to add an audio clip to the review later to see how that is integrated into the post.

Update:  audio uploaded perfect into post.

Posted my review tonight on the 2022 OnCore ELIXR golf ball.

One interesting thing was that I cut/pasted a spreadsheet.  When I tried to remove by cutting it back out, it took away the text, but the boxes remained.  That's why there's a large gap at the end of my review.

Also, it'd be great to be able to resize the graphics within the tool, rather than having to do so in an editor and bring it in.  Unless you can and I just couldn't figure it out.

EDITED:  Nevermind, I figured it out...doh!!

Thanks, -- Peejer

One issue I noticed on mobile is the indented sections don’t wrap correctly in portrait or landscape (note the clipping on the right side):

This is on an iPhone using Safari. Happy to provide detailed version numbers if needed. Additionally the star ratings are not easily readable, but this is also true for non beta areas:

Thanks @Peejer and @mynerds. Really appreciate the feedback. 
 

I’ll see if we can get the readability issues fixed, especially on mobile. Glad you guys got the photo sizing issues fixed up!

Posted my CT10 review here:

 

 

Did it on desktop, no issues getting it done. Only thought is that there was a lot of overlap between scored categories for this specific type of device, so I kinda struggled to separate everything.

Driver: :taylormade-small: Stealth Plus 8* (adjusted to 8.75*), Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 70 X Flex

Fairway: :taylormade-small: SIM, 15* (adjusted to 15.75*), Shaft is a 50/50 split between Accra FX 2.0 300F M5 Flex and Paderson Kinetixx Ballistic TP 85 X Flex

Irons:  :titleist-small: T200 "Utility Build" 3 and 4 irons with Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 95 X Flex, :titleist-small: T100S 5-PW with Nippon Pro Modus 120 X Flex (2021 MGS Test). These things are monsters. 

Wedges: :mizuno-small:T-20 Blue Ion 50.07, :Miura: K-Grind 2.0 Black 56* and Chrome 60* w/Accra SPI Tour

Putter: Total headcase, so it depends on the day. Rotate between :EVNROLL: ER11V ("Murdered Out" Black edition),  :mizuno-small: M Craft Type II Blue Ion and a Toulon Madison

Totally understand and we can adjust the rating categories. What suggestions do you have to adjust them?

Specifically for the GPS Tracking category (maybe specific to automated trackers and not all GPS devices?), I found myself struggling to differentiate Accuracy vs. On Course Performance, and between Features vs. App/Dashboard. Maybe I'm just misinterpreting the intent of the categories, but these were my debates while writing it:

Accuracy feels like it's just part of OCP for this type of device, and could be dropped (or combined). Things like did it pick up my shot? With the right club? In the right spot? That's how I interpreted "accuracy", but that all feels like OCP to me. Other "accuracy" assessments felt like they'd fit under OCP or Features (e.g. no way to tell it where the hole actually is --> either poor performance or lack of feature; map accuracy could be kinda separate, but also kinda not). 

Features vs. App/Dashboard -- again kinda feel the same to me, or one is just part of the other. I guess in my case the Features could be what I have available on the watch pairing with the sensors, which is separate, but I consider all the stats to be in the Features category too (but those are all on the app/dashboard, so...). I could see these being separate for some other systems, but for mine, they felt kinda the same.
