Yeah, the problem is that it isn’t intuitive - people expect to be able to do it from the main page. Without any explanation, I’ve seen evidence / conversations that a number of people can’t find it and so don’t leave reviews.

I actually like that the review button is only on the excerpt pages. It makes it so people have to actually read the passages before writing a review. At least, that’s the goal, lol - I realize it’s not a guarantee. An instruction of some sort somewhere more visible would be helpful though.

Great point @Robert Batten re: making reviewing more obvious - since they are the only comments that people who come from outside Inkshares. 
They could also just put the recommended comments into the "what the critics are saying" area, too - most people wouldn’t think to hover over the little profiles next to ’recommended by’. Of course, then that basically makes the recommends the reviews but, then, they kind of are anyway...

Unfortunately this is something that is very intuitive on the website. The only way to add a review to someone’s work is to open one of the excerpts (not just open the project page). If you are in the full view of an excerpt there is a review button in the bar at the bottom of the page.

Inkshares people - there really needs to be a review button on the project home page.

@Alexander Barnes I usually put my review/criticism in the comments of a story. Maybe consider doing that, but I’ve never figured out how to write a review on here so I might not be very useful. I’ll ask around for you though.

Have Reviews been disabled? I can’t seem to find the damn button anywhere.
