All reviews must be approved to ensure they are accurate. This approval process is done by the volunteer staff and does not always move consistently. Also, there may be no one available who can confirm the accuracy of a given review, so expect some delay.
Can we post any (sometimes random, but sincere ) questions we are wondering about in here or is this place basically for mods to post answers to questions they feel are fraquently asked?

If there's a review on hold for a title that none of the staff have any familiarity with, can we call on a third party (another member in good standing besides the author) who is and have them read the review?

Some reviews from certain members have been approved without confirmation, but again we don't want to set a precedent for this. Did you have a particular title in mind?
No, just off the assumption that the staff hasn't seen even every conceivable Anime, Manga, or video game known to mankind.

Without getting too technical (and glossing over a few things, to be sure) an IP address is a really big number (so bit it's usually written as 4 smaller ones that look like this: aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd) that uniquely identifies your computer on the internet - kinda like a phone number. Usually your ISP will assign you an IP address. If multiple users have the same IP address, the staff will likely watch them very closely - as trolls or robots often come back with a different username, but from the same IP address ().
On the other hand, sometimes siblings (or other family relations) will share a computer (or routed connection), which in turn means they have the same IP address. For this reason, we don't explicitly block the practice.
I hope that makes some sense!

I posted this question in my thread in said section, but it's not been answered so I went ahead and posted two Tolkien poems. So for the record, am I(we) allowed to do this?

It would certainly be something I could start out in this forum, if people were really interested, and it would certainly fit this need.

GeneD wrote:I can't seem to edit my posts to remove the Tolkien poems now though, so if one of the mods could please do it (if you feel it's necessary) since I really wouldn't want to set a bad example. Especially if new users do likewise without checking to see if it's allowed since another member (me) has already done so.
Are there any plans at the moment/in the near future to re-introduce the devotions as a permanent fixture?
