Quote from: landyvlad on Jul 07, 2020, 11:58 PMI am already registered (as you know) and am impressed with the review format etc.Yes we will be doing portals
A few ideas/questions -
Will you only be reviewing mods? Or are there plans to review other things e.g.
- Portals (I guess technically they are a mod)
Quote from: landyvlad on Jul 07, 2020, 11:58 PM- SMF versions themselves (eg 2.1.RC3 and 2.1 Final when it comes)At this time we are only doing 2.0.17 mods when 2.1 is final we will be doing 2.1 mods, we dont have manpower to do more
Quote from: landyvlad on Jul 07, 2020, 11:58 PM- Theme reviews? And particularly whether they wrk well or introduce various issues.At this time we are only doing 2.0.17 mods we dont have manpower to do more such as themes
(If so I'd advise only review responsive mods)
Quote from: landyvlad on Jul 07, 2020, 11:58 PMAre all going to be in a review format or are you also considering doing head-to-head comparisons?At the moment review format however we hope to grow to do more as staff grow
eg an article like 2.0.x vs 2.1.x Should I upgrade? (obviously once final version in the world)
Quote from: landyvlad on Jul 07, 2020, 11:58 PMI see on the site it's possible (or will be possible) to submit reviews. What sort of rigour / quality control is in place for this. I mean I could do a review of a mod I use but I have no real technical ability or depth of knowledge. Or are you simply saying that users of the mod can comment in the discsussion thread?All community reviews are moderated and using the template provided will help keep on track (we hope)
Quote from: landyvlad on Jul 07, 2020, 11:58 PMIndependent? Given that SMFHacks has (maybe?) donated a prize, if you are independently reviewing mods with no external influence you should probably make this explicity clear (and vice versa)They havent donated a prize, we are buying it for the winner. This is why we have never used wording that they have donated or indicated that it has been given to us from SMFHacks. The next prize may come from another mod site and we will pay for that. Ad Seller Pro was chosen as the first review was Ad Management Mod and Ad Seller Pro is in essence the pro version of this mod.

Is there any way it could be incorporated onto a wordpress page that you know of? Its a great idea.I suppose it could be used in WP, its a simple script I found many years ago, I'll dig it out and share.
