I don't vote on the review if there is a lack of information and I'm not interested enough in the toy to bother asking for more details; I'll just move on to the next one. I subscribe to the RSS feed, so it's a little easier for me to do this than those who rely on the community news page to see what's active.

I don't vote on unuseful reviews because I don't like to be ugly. Maybe they just need to learn and I don't want to discourage. If I see potential in a writer, I will give them some pointers in a nice way.

Always unless I am in a hurry and very rarely I'll not vote if the review was just extremely uninforitive. I still try to be very nice and leave a comment asking them questions and telling them they may want to add those deets in the reviews, but I'm never anything but very kind and helpful about it. If I feel I can't be helpful about it or that it may come off as me sounding 'superior' to their review job, I wont do it. Of course I'd never pick at a review though, EVER! I think that is rude and an insult to a person who did work hard on it. Anyways, almost 9 times outta 10 I'll rate, but I feel some people do not want others to get a ranking and that is why they avoid rating. I don't care, it's important for them to get feedback so I'm not going to be immature. I'll rate, but I'll be nice as possible.

Same here, I don't vote on unuseful reviews.

Some are so brief and noninformative I cannot think of anything positive. Or I am uninterested in the product completely after reading, and also I wasn't sure of product prior to clicking and starting to read.

I don't like to rate a review unless I feel that it needs extra detail, in which case usually I'll just leave a comment and explain what it needs, but I hate leaving negative ratings especially if it's early on for someone. I remember my first review wasn't as good as my later ones.

I don't read all the reviews but always interested in reviews of things I have or interested in.
If a review is poor or lacking, I just don't vote.

If it's someones first review and they did a really crap job, I won't vote because they're still learning. I don't want to lie and tell them that it's useful when it wasn't, but I also don't want to discourage them! If it's someone's 20th review and they did a really crap job, I'll vote away!

Honestly, I forget to vote most of the time. I spend a lot of time processing the information in the reviews and don't remember to click on a vote most of the time.

I'll usually vote on every single review that I read, if I'm consciously thinking about it.

I vote every time. Or at least I try to. I'm sure there have been some times where I forgot.

I only recently realized that you have to hit vote and then confirm. So there were several votes I placed that didn't register. I try to be objective and vote honestly and usually leave some type of comment. I figure if they took the time to write something to share they deserve a vote and a comment if I read it.

I vote almost every time. I sometimes won't vote if a review is really un-useful because I don't want to be mean. Sometimes in those cases I'll leave a comment on how to improve or ask some questions, and I'll come back later to see if anything changed or they answered. Then I might vote. But I usually don't even do all that, and I'll just skip voting unless I can give a positive vote.

I rate almost all reviews I read. If I don't its because my cat jumped onto my laptop and kicked me back a page and I'm too lazy to go back.

This! Unless even the first review is a 1 paragraph rush job and it looks like something you'd see on Adam and Eve. Even then, I give people a free pass the first time, anyway, and leave some info about Extended Reviews, the Mentor Program and ask questions to get their creative juices flowing.

Without at least some constructive criticism how will people learn what is expected in a review?

I won't lie on a vote, though. This isn't Middle School. It has nothing to do with being mean, only helpful. But, if I leave anything less than "useful" (and even then often) I will leave some info on why I voted why I did in the form of questions or suggestions. People do need to sometimes learn by doing, and if all they get is "Great review! " they aren't going to learn how to be a critical judge of their own work and it doesn't do them a service. And that doesn't do Eden a service either.

I do not rate all of them. Only the ones I take the time to read fully.

I won't vote if I can't honestly give at least a "somewhat useful". I know that it would be better to vote on everyone to let them know that they need to improve, but I don't like giving low votes and am frankly afraid of getting negative votes in return.

Yeah for the most part. It's nice to give feed back and if I'm going to take the time to read it I might as well take the extra two seconds to rate it

i figure that if people are nice enough to tell me their opinions to me, i should extend the same service.

I usually vote on the reviews I read... unless it's really terrible. Sometimes if it's really bad I wouldn't even know where to begin as far as leaving them a message regarding my vote. So if it's bad I'll often not bother to vote at all.

I usually vote but I am too nice so if a review is not useful I won't vote on it. I just would rather ignore the bad review than vote not useful at all. I'm sure they would figure that bit out anyway.

Like many others here, I vote unless it's such a bad review that if I were to be honest, I'd have to give them a really low rating.

I do the same thing. I genuinely would like answers to my questions that I leave in the comments. If they get answered or the reviewer edits the review to reflect the omitted info or if weeks go by with no response, then I vote accordingly.

Otherwise, I do try to vote on every review I read. I will admit, there are times that I think I vote, but forget to hit the confirm button.

I rate some of the reviews I read, but for the most part, I just take in information about a product.
