Have not done a lot of reviews, nor discussions, add old age to that and I have a question. lol What does it mean when a review says i.e. 2 of 10 ppl found your review helpful? Does that mean 10 people viewed it, and 2 people voted it helpful??
Exactly. Ten people voted. 8 no, 2 yes. You'll probably find that people often find praise more helpful than criticism. A lot of folks read the reviews of things they've bought and regret it when they find that they should've read them before purchase.
Vine reviews are from people that got the item for nothing, and free stuff is usually nicer than paid for items. So Vine reviews are rarely low rated. Unless of course the product is absolute garbage.
I wish any review that is not about the product was deleted. Too many one star reviews from people who thought they got slow delivery, and skew the average.
Or reviews that many people voted on and none found useful.
When you see a review that is not about the product (delivery, the seller, etc), then just click the NO vote and a link will appear to "report as inappropriate." Amazon doesn't always remove the review, but sometimes they do.
It usually seems to correlate pretty well to how helpful the review actually is. A review such as "this was a great and comfortable pair of shoes" is more helpful than "I ordered this on Wednesday and didn't receive it until the next Monday!!!!!"
8 people found your / the review unhelpful and useless and thus should technically be deleted as it is a waste of their visual time and mental processing to achieve the goal of deciphering whether or not a potential purchase is truly what they are looking to indeed one-click.
