Put business name in bold on reviewer's contribution list

I think this one has gotten just about everyone at one point or another. You're looking at the list of reviews that you have contributed to find an old review that you have written:

http://www.tripadvisor.ca/members-reviews

You find the review, click on it, and end up on the main review page for the business, possibly several pages away from your review. That's because there are actually two links for each contribution. If you mouse over it, you can see that the first link is Destination Name:Business Name (e.g. Calgary:Excelsior Restaurant).

That's followed by another colon, followed by a second link for Review Title ("I thought I'd die smiling"). Clicking on the second link takes you to a page with your review at the top of the list.

Make the distinction more obvious by placing the

Destination Name:Business Name

link in a bold font. The contrast with the regular font used for the review title should help people realize that there are two links here, not just one.

I'm not yet sure it's an improvement -- my page looks kind of "fuzzy". (Yes my glasses are clean, lol!)

C_W thank you for mentioning that the pending reviews are now at the bottom! I've had one sitting in pending for 10 days now and sent a note to TA on Sat about it. Then I thought it disappeared! But now I see it's *still* pending only now at the bottom of the list on the first page.

Must say I do NOT like that change at all!

I don't have any reviews pending but I agree I wouldn't like them at the bottom of the list. I can't understand why they would change that because I'm sure no one requested it. Hopefully it can be reversed.

Hi all,

I'm just as confused as you about pending reviews showing at the bottom of the first page of your contributions list. Must be a glitch.

Can someone start a thread about this issue in the Support Forum? That way we can point others to it if they ask, and I'll update the thread as soon as the engineers give us more information.

Thanks!

Jeanine

half-Brit:

Just one more review to hit the magic 500. That's some achievement. When will that be?

Not as much an achievement as over 50,000 posts, though!

I'm saving that for something really special, LOL ;-)

Well I have always been a forums man more than a reviewer. At home I don't get out much and in Cuba I always stay at the same casa particular, so have limited opportunities to write reviews.

It is now clear that this is a permanent change to the website, not just a test. So kudos to TA for following up on a HUMTAB forum suggestion!

(And the pending reviews glitch seems to be fixed now.)
