    Instead of best of 5 it should be on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the best. (Here you could have star ratings instead of numbers to make it easier for people to review)

    And if you could have a pop down selection menu which lists all the companies, products, models, based on categories that would make it easier for people to review and in turn you would get more reviews.

    I'd suggest editing it, to something like the following;

    Performance Rating:​

    I also like Rocky's suggestion of using stars, that's the way Amazon do their reviews and it is much quicker and easier for recipients for users to leave their feedback that way. Plus, it helps avoid confusion concerning whether 1 or 5 is the best / top rating.

    By Preloaded Text i meant whenever someone clicks new topic the Value, Features and Performance will come up. All users will do is simply put numbers down. Also I put the above text into sticky locked topic so users wont be able to reply to that section.

    if anyone wants to see the sticky thread and the preloaded text just follow this link thanks.. http://xquizit.info/index.php?board=43.0

    Also add another item scale "recommendation to buy" ...this will give you an idea of popular gadgets just like hot threads on BAF...;)

    The sentence below is a little confusing;

    Do you think the text below might read better?

    This will create a topic for your review, with preloaded text. Simply fill in the blanks and click submit when finished.
