How do you rate "standard format" reviews?

charletnarouh charletnarouh
It seems like most reviews written in the "Standard" as opposed to the "Extended" format are not very detailed and don't include photos. Has this been your experience? Do you judge "standard format" reviews by the same standards as "extended format" or do you have a different criterial in mind based on the format? Do you typically find more reviews that you consider "extremely useful" or "useful" in "Extended format"?

I rate the standard pretty much the same as I do extended format reviews. To be useful it they must include:
--specific details describing the product(these vary depending on if it is lingerie, toy, lube, novelty, etc.)
--care instructions, storage, size item or sizing for lingerie
--ingredients-allergy caution or material and compatibility issues

They both must have easy to read, flowing paragraphs and be specific to item and usage and have personal opinions about the good and bad.

Pictures are totally optional and do not change how I rate a review!!!

I have read both good and bad reviews in both formats. However in general I find reviews in the extended format to be better organized and more likely to answer all my questions. The user's experience is what interests me the most! My criteria for voting stays the same in both formats. I think you write great reviews!

I only write in Standard (unless I have a DR assignment). I include photos (not that it is required) and I feel I am detailed.

So no, that is not my experience at all. I've seen excellent reviews done in both formats. I've also seen reviews that were not useful at all in both formats.

I rate both reviews the same. As long as it is a good review and done right. Sometimes I may not include pictures in mine as well. Depending on what the item is. It is not mandatory to include pics, but I do with lingerie reviews so that people can see how it looks on me. As long as it is not to revealing.
