Changes to the display of reviews

edited February 2012 in Brickset.com
I've just finished something I started just after the user survey last year and, because it was fairly tricky to implement, I'd like you to test it before I announce it on the main site.

One common criticism of the reviews is that they can be flooded with those written by KFOLs and TFOLs that are of interest only to that age group, and as a result it can be harder to find the better ones.

So, I've provided the means for you to specify your review preferences in your profile.

You can choose whether you want to see reviews written by AFOLs, TFOLs, KFOLs, parents or educators, or, for old reviews, where the reviewer is unspecified. Once you've done so, it'll affect all pages that display reviews.

Reviews by gold-rated reviewers will be shown to everyone, regardless of the age of the reviewer. So, if a KFOL or TFOL consistently writes high quality reviews, and there are many that do, then I think it only right that they are displayed to all.

So, please, have a play and let me know if it works as expected. There could still be a few bugs to iron out so if you find any problems, let me know here.
