Request for curation function for gear reviews

It would be nice if we could log a curation request for a particular review section similar to the thread moderation request for regular threads. Example requests might include:
  • Addition of information for the description area or reporting of inaccurate descriptions
  • Suggestions and/or submissions for more appropriate photos of the gear being reviewed
  • Reporting of inaccurate, empty, meaningless, off-topic, non-Pentax, or "opaque" reviews as well as reviews consist mostly of links to outside videos and blog posts. It was one such review consisting solely of links to non-narrated examples on YouTube videos taken with a particular lens that triggered this thread.
Just a thought...

Is this specifically for the content of the reviews, or the entries as well? The latter is in the works so that we can collaboratively build up new specs for third-party lenses.

I was thinking the entry. Problems with specific reviews might then be addressed as free text by number or by URL.

I agree. I've come across a few junk reviews which aren't really reviews at all.

I agree with Steve, also. I've seen reviews in the negative by what I assume are members who don't know what went wrong when they used their gear.

I don't think we can get into censoring reviews in any way. I've read poor reviews where it was clear that the user didn't know what they were doing or had a bad copy of a lens but if we start doing that then the whole reviews section loses all credibility.
