As an editor, how many times will you send back a review for a problem without them fixing it before you send it to an admin?

I picked up a review earlier where they were trying to give vroom and bee ratings to something that can not have vroom or bee ratings. I sent it back to them with an explanation that that was not what the vroom and bee ratings were used for. Several minutes later they re-submitted it without changing anything.

Question to my fellow editors; how many times will you go back and forth on something like this before you give up and send it to an admin? I've ended up in this situation several times and was wondering what everyone else tends to do!

Some reviews will use those ratings for items that do not vibrate. For example, some will use the sound rating because some masturbators can make quite a bit of noise.

Honestly, if that's all that is wrong with the review, I would simply change it yourself if you think it is inappropriate or publish it as is. I don't think it's worth submitting to Admin for such a minor thing.

This is what I was going to say too. I'd change it. If they (reviewer) wants it to have vrooms and bees, they can change it after you publish it. I wouldn't send it to administration.

Okay, the main thing is that they said that they gave the product a 'bee' rating for the moans it will supposedly produce and the vroom rating because it is a ribbed product. I feel weird just deleting whole sentences from a review like that.

Thanks for the input Kindred! You always have good advice!

You, too, Beck!

I deleted it and published it. I just have trouble knowing what to do when people don't fix things and just re-submit them! You guys are great.

Honestly, it's not an editor's place to even comment on that. That's better suited for a mentor. Your job, as an editor, is to check for grammar, syntax, and that everything is properly formatted. It isn't to scan for content other than unsafe practices, really.

Ah, okie dokie! I really haven't run into it before. I had one person before who had a link to their Eden page where the offsite link wouldn't work and wouldn't fix it, but otherwise every review I've edited has been factually correct and just needed language issues edited. I guess I assumed it feel into the 'The article or review has false information or presents theories/opinions as fact.' guideline I'm supposed to be looking for. It's hard not to want to 'mentor' some reviews I find to edit!

It really depends what the error is. A lot of people do rate vrooms and bees like that - you don't need to submit that to admin - either publish those as is or make the change and publish. The vrooms/bees do sort of fall into that guideline, but they're subjective - false information is more along the lines of "it's a vibrator - boil it" or something that's clearly contrary/untrue. Or, of course, if the review is for a totally different product
