  • forum flow and displaying information is quite senseless.

    Well, I see your thread complaining of my feedback; The thread however has been closed now. Here are the reasons why I have given it a 1 star.

    1. As an admin i have created forums, why these forums are not being displayed at front end to end-users? It just shows the count of forums under forums statistics but not the names of actual forums.

    2. The usual flow of a forum is that admin creates the forums. and users can add topics into those forums or reply to topics. In your system I couldnt find any place to add topics in a forum because they are not being displayed at all to the end users.

    3. There is no clearly visible interface to see topics of a forum in admin

    4. No URL slug option. you have just changed the default flow of wordpress and removed the url slug option. the screen options have the checkbox but nothing happens if i click the checkbox to show slug url.

    Even if these options are hidden somewhere, who would like to struggle to find those? They should have been user friendly, intuitive and easily found. That;s why i called it “senseless flow’

    And yes i have given a negative to one more forum during this short time because I am searching forum plugin for my site and i am reviewing almost all forum plugins since last 8 hours and shared what i had experienced.

    I might have asked you all these questions in your support forum but why the forum plugin is so complicated that i have to ask such obvious things like where to see topics? where to add topics in forum? why forums are not being displayed on front end? why the url slug is not being displayed.

    These all must have been intuitive.

    I’m sorry, but I can’t even say thank you for your feedback. The only senseless thing I see here is your feedback. I’d be happy to help you find answers on your question. But it’s hopeless for sure. As far as I see you’re here only for leaving this review, if not just try to get more details, ask questions to change your review. You have not even opened a support topic.

    PS: You’re adding 1* reviews per 5 minutes for each discussion plugins: http://screencast.com/t/cesGa5DfNS I don’t think you test those enough, this looks strange.

    @rashid0716, Your feedback will gain traction as long as you expand on your points and work with the plugin contributors and author. Your review is legitimate of your experience, but the plugin could be improved so that you or other people don’t experience the same problem again.

    @gvectors-team, This is still a valid review.

    @anevins imo a review to be consider as it, must have at least a “because” on its content

    @vinsanity, Sorry we don’t have that requirement on a review. The review could be expanded on, but even if it isn’t then that is acceptable for a review. It is up to the plugin contributors and author to retrieve as much information as possible; which is a reason why they are encouraged to respond well.

    Thank you for your feedback @andrew and @vinsanity.
    I’m still waiting for some rules related to plugin review section. It’s really frustrated to get such senseless reviews. Please consider to eliminate such reviews from WordPress community. it would be the best gift for all plugin developers.

    Thanks!

    @anevins got your point and I agree with you. My was just a concern regarding the “useless” comment here above. From a simple user (like me) to simple users (like @rashid0716).
    We (as simple users) struggle to get a good plugin, but we are too lazy to make a good review…that’s just weird.

    After 1* feedback here this user is adding second similar review here. Only 6 minutes and he’s figuring out that the next plugin is also useless. How can this be?

    The review system is here to receive feedback on your plugins, and it does just that. I don’t see the problem you’re suggesting to resolve.

    @gvectors-team, Please don’t look too much into the user’s activity. If someone is suspicious then moderators can explore that, but for now please treat everyone as legitimate users.

    well @anevins just to recap: @rashid0716 is a good user, helpfull for this community, and devs and other users are wrong if they remark a possible ruining behaviors from other users.
    Even you need tons of 5* revies to fix a kiddo-style 1* review without a minimum of explanation.

    Well I think that is this is your idea of moderation, we need mods to medarate the current mods.

    Hi there,

    It seems we’ve got a few misunderstandings going around here.

    First of all, there are guidelines for reviews, basically they are “the users experience matters, not the developers thoughts of the review”, and we follow these closely (and yes, we do monitor a lot of reviews, you’d be surprised how much time is spent on this).

    @vinsanity
    Andrew never said they weren’t a good user, he said that it’s not nice to point fingers and to always react as if a user is legitimate. We discover fake users, we’re really good at it.

    This is no longer a review feedback thread, it’s merely a back and forth and serves no purpose, as such I’ll be closing it.

    I do welcome anyone that has any input and feedback on the routines of moderators to join our weekly chats (yup, we gather at least once a week at https://make.wordpress.org/support/2016/10/agenda-for-october-13th-support-meeting/ and it’s open for anyone to voice their thoughts)
