Hey guys, 

I noticed when I tried to simply remove one of my ratings or one of my reviews, that PA does not allow me to actually remove it. It only allows me to change my star rating I've given an album, or to edit an album review I've composed. 

Is there a way to simply remove an album rating or album review it if I want to?

Thanks

It's probably quickest to PM an admin.

I'm going out shortly, so a quick note...

Yes, you can only edit your reviews and ratings, not delete them. An admin can delete them, but this is not something that we would wish to do regularly (reviews are deleted that go against the guidelines) and deleting commonly is discouraged. Editing is preferred.

You seem like a fair rater and I enjoyed your review of The Dreaming.

You can PM me if you want some specific action done.

Thanks, both of you, for the quick replies.

I should add that the reason I brought this up is because I realized if I gave a rating to an album in the past and then decide much later to compose a review for that album, the review will not be listed on the PA front page for "Latest Progressive Rock Music Reviews", like I thought it would.  That's why I was looking to just delete the whole thing and repost as a new rating/review, and wanted to be able to do the same thing if I compose a review for an album I have previously rated.  Looks like that can't be done without bothering an Admin, which I don't want to do, so I'll just leave it as is.

@Logan Thanks for your remarks about my fairness. I'm surprised anyone read my review of The Dreaming, which I composed years ago on the fly without much thought or editing.  I was recovering from surgery this past week and actually had time on my hands (for once) and decided to write a more lengthy and thoughtful review of the eponymous TOY MATINEE album.  If anyone's interested, it's here:  http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1360174

^ An understandable query and may be a helpful to to others topic. I haven't written many reviews, but also added review to one of my ratings much later, and so it wasn't displayed.

Not bothering Admin is very considerate of you, but my PM box is open if you do want to contact me at some time -- that said, I'm known to take epic lunch breaks that may last weeks or even months every now and then and don't get email notifications. Great review for Toy Matinee! ]

I never knew a new review doesn't appear on the PA front page if a reviewer had previously only rated the album, so that's something worth bearing in mind for future reference. Thumbs Up

The review space (if long enough) was published on the front page  when it was created.
Modifications to the space will not change the date of its creation, therefore not go back to the front page.



After years of coming here, who ever still goes to the frontpage anyways?

Those curious about new reviews? I actually think many start on the frontpage and a number scroll through new reviews before doing anything else.

I understand the thread opener well and have felt bugged by this in the past as well. I hardly ever do ratings only now in order to avoid this problem in case I want to write a review later. I never thought of asking a mod to remove my rating for this reason though, and I have a certain worry that if this is done for one person, then...

OK. I have a problem. Something went wrong and I clicked the little star icon by mistake. xD
Please remove this particular rating from my profile:
5 stars SBB Przebudzenie (rating only)

I think have noticed that, when a given album has already been rated (but not reviewed), then the legend "First review for this..." doesn't show on the first review. That can't be right, can it?

^ It can be, that is what happens. The date it was rated is registered as the date (or number) of the review since the review is an edit to fill in the review box that is open to you when you rate.
