Re: Why can't I edit my review

I know the feeling. At least you can post reviews. I've been trying for days and it still won't let me post any. I can rate books, though, but when trying submit the reviews, it goes back to the entry screen instead of posting them. I sorely hope B&N fixes this soon, because it's sorely annoying not being able to post up book reviews for books we've read. >.<

Re: Why can't I edit my review

I received a message that my review violated the terms and use, but for life of me couldn't figure out why. I had my husband read the review and he laughed at me cause I had mispelled heroine. I meant the female hero, but accidently left off the e at the end, which spelled the drug. I can't edit my review and it's very frustrating. 

 

Is this a common glitch in the system? I would like to add the missing e and resubmit my review but there is no edit button, nor is there a way to talk with the moderators. I can't seam to delete the review and start over either. Does anyone have any ideas?

Sorry, Samantha, we're all just pretty much screwed for the time being.

Re: Why can't I edit my review

There's a new look to the reviews.  No more header line to fill out (it auto populates from your first sentence), and you no longer have to preview the review in order to get it to list your username (as opposed to listing it under anonymous).  Unfortunately, still can't edit/delete a review.  Maybe they'll get that up next?

Re: Why can't I edit my review

So this has been going on for a year? I just had the same message for a review posted Dec. 2012. Like you, I have no idea what part of my review violated terms and use. I can't edit or delete & can't seem to get an answer.I am going to quit posting & just read for my own pleasure! This is so frustrating!

kamas716: Can we use the word "screwed"? I thought that would get you flagged for inappropriate language. Just saying......

I have no idea if 'screwed' is flagged or not. It's a double secret list, you have to be Dean Wormer or one of his lackies to know.

Re: Why can't I edit my review

I am trying to figure out how to post a review and in my search I came across this thread.  I can't tell if you have since figured out how to edit your review.  I hope so.

 

I am still searching for how to post a review in the first place.

Re: Why can't I edit my review

I can't see how to edit the review; I followed the instructions posted another thread, but the edit button listed doesn't exist. I just submitted then noticed my review contained an error. It's frustrating as your book review text comes out in a long stream, and you can't effectively review it. I don't understand why they can't make the book review process like this screen!
