We Need Better Review System
So, I think we need new better review system that can give a better experience for the reader.
As I see it, no offence but, the current review system is bad, totally bad, it's sh*tty.
Why? Because there is no limitation or even any requirement to give a review.
Do you need to read the novel first ? NOPE, you want it, you review it.
Do the novel have to be released? NOPE, as long you can see the novel page, you can review the synopsis or you know, what ever you want.
Do your review have to be about the novel? NOPE, as long as it is 140 character, you're good to go.
So I really think we need better review, why? So that the reader can see whether or not a novel worth reading.
Qidian now implement a premium system, so further reading would of course we need to spend SS.
How do we know whether the novel is good or not, whether it suits us or not, before spending some SS?
We need a better review system.
Beside that, there is a lot of people just sending multiple review to inflate the stars review.
On another note, there is also a practice of deleting bad review about the novel with star rating under 2 star
this is a screenshot of an inbox with a deleted review with <2stars.
Also, there is a practice of just spouting any random word multiple times and giving high rating

So IMO, what we need is a new review system that comply these criterias:
- 1 person 1 review, you can edit the review and the star rating, rather than post new review.
- The reviewer have to at least read the novel, I know it's only formality, but at least open the damn chapter and then give review.
- The novel has to be released for it to be legitimate for a review, for goodness sake why would you allow something that is not released yet to be reviewed. It's like saying 'your baby is handsome' to a 2 months pregnant mom
- Please do not delete review just because it's giving a low star, just because some review is giving the novel low rating it did not deserve to be deleted, unless it's content is inappropriate (as in pornographic, personal attack, or advertisement), at least give it a reminder or something, not just blatantly deleting and silencing them.
So that's all I want to convey.
@WEBNOVEL , please consider this.
