    My curiosity has gotten the best of me, and I do know that this this is the really busy time of the year when it comes to getting reviews posted, however this is something I am not understanding. I posted a review of Eureka RV Park in Eureka, CA I believe on either 8/7 or 8/8. It was put up almost immediately. I followed that one with a review if Winchester Bay RV Resort in Win Bay, OR. The third one was for Rolling hills RV Park in Corning, CA which also got put up almost immediately. Strange that the one for WB is showing in my profile and outlined in yellow, as "Pending Approval". My question is did I type something "out of line" to reviews policy or is it being held for some other reason/s? I have one more review to write from our recent trip but will hold doing so until I hear back as to what is happening with my second review. Not a big deal as some folks might tend to make it, just my old curiosity kicking in as noted above. Thanks in advance for letting me know what's going on with this one................o_O

    All the best to you folks that sit on the hot seat much of the time, BankShot............(aka Terry)

    As you know, there are several criteria that may cause a review to be held for further reading by an admin, and I admit I have looked at reviews where I never did figure out why it was held. However, in this case I think I spotted something that might have been the culprit. At the very end of your review for Winchester Bay, you stated, "If you like the ocean, the fresh air, and some great seafood in the immediate area, you won't find better............. BankShot.........(aka Terry)." The names of people are not supposed to used in reviews so I believe "Terry" tripped you up. Of course the guideline is meant to apply to naming park personnel, but the system can't tell that you were referring to yourself. Even so, we are supposed to remove any language that identifies the reviewer other than his username. In fact, the only reason I linked your name to that review in this reply is because you have already done so in your original message.

    As for the two reviews that were posted quickly, they did not have your name included at the end.

    Other than containing your name, your review is very good and I'm sure it will be posted soon.

    Thanks Texasrvers for pointing this out to me. I am so use to putting my name at the end of my posts that it just got typed in as if I was making a posting on the forum. Won't do that again. I take it that someone will remove it and all will be okay............. :D

    Regards, Terry...........(aka BankShot)

    I know who you are Terry but the fact you add your real name to posts adds a personal touch that i think made us friends from the outset mate. But Texasrvers is right guidlines are indeed guidlines

    This website takes way to long to post reviews and I don't care what the reason is for it . Bottom line is the way they check reviews takes way too long .

    Many reviews are posted immediately when they pass the automated validation system checks. Posts that are held for human review take longer of course, depending on the current review volume and the number of volunteers available to review them.

    If you feel this way GDM then perhaps you should volunteer, as a "newbie" to the forum, and become an administrator. By doing so and with no real compensation for your time and efforts put forth to try your very best to get the hundreds of reviews coming in daily, posted immediately if not sooner. Try wearing an administrator's shoes for a while and find out the real story before spouting off, again as a newbie to the forum, as to why reviews take longer to post during the summer season. Oh, and lest I forget, welcome to the forum. You'll find a great group of RVers here with many very knowledgeable in all aspects of RVing, etc..........

    Dutch is correct. At this time of year we can get several hundred reviews a day that don't meet the automated criteria (many more than that are processed automatically). Our admin team are volunteers RVers who have their own vacations and other activities. The current "delay time" for reviews being processed manually is five days.
