I’m frustrated

Negative review not published.

I've tried to take the invitation to be first to submit a review of the Eismann book-The Creative Digital Darkroom but it appears that negative reviews are not published.

    Hello Black and White,

    We've received just one review for this book, and that was submitted tonight at 9.09 PM PT. Was this yours? You didn't see it right away because our review system aggregates reviews throughout the day and publishes them all at once after midnight. And indeed we do publish negative reviews about our books. We feel that they are essential to our integrity, that they help readers narrow in on books that are right for them, and they provide us with important feedback about how to improve our products. Look around our site and you'll find negative reviews.

    If it was you that submitted a review at 9.09 this evening, it wasn't listed as a review with a rating, but as a response to an existing review. Because there wasn't an existing review, and because you didn't leave a rating, I'm not sure your comments will be helpful to others. If you don't mind, give it another try. If you do I'll delete the original review and leave the new one.

    Many regards, and thanks for taking the time to write.

  • Hi,

    I just took a closer look and noticed that you also posted a review yesterday which should have gone live today. Unfortunately that review wasn't linked correctly to the book - this happened to one other review recently so we'll investigate the problem. Let us know which review you'd like to keep on the site - they're both live now.

    Thanks!

    well the same thing has happened to my review, i have been waiting for weeks to see it so I can complete the blogger review form, my own website blog has been up for weeks now and still the useless platform offered here has not submitted my blog review, typed in o'reilly's system. I actually kept the review kinda impartial as the book was not good or bad and I would recommend it to others needing to learn the subject, so it doesn't hurt me one bit, in fact the book coupled with this review system does kinda put me off purchasing anything o'reilly in future!

    apologies for necro posting, but 4 years later it seems this is still an issue, and you wonder why the book only has one review!

  • Hi Lewis,

    I'm sorry to hear that your review is missing. I see a review from you on Web Workers. Is that not the correct book, or is another review missing? Let us know, and we'll track it down.

    Thanks for participating in the blogger review program, and for letting us know when you ran into an issue. Sorry for the frustration!
