Post list of reviews

Would it be possible to add an option to the reviews page to get a list of all reviews by review date (date added) in reverse chronological order (newest on top)?



(And completely unrelated: shouldn't some of the moderators be updated? Now some moderators are mentioned for various forums that haven't even visited these forums for over a year...)

I suppose we could do something about those two points...

there is an option to hide all the moderators from the main page, but we don't want that... looked on the 'tinternet', but nothing seems to work. For example, I've removed Peter Glade as a moderator of the Instrument and Musicians forum, but his name is still there.

That is what the reviews page does, limited to the latest 10 for display reasons (actually, it's by review number, but that amounts to the same thing as they're assigned in order when the review is uploaded). Are you asking for a more extensive list? Every review? Or something like the alphabetical list but by year (of review, or of album)?

We'll take that one to the Site Coder conversation!

I'm indeed asking for a more extensive list. Just 10 is insufficient for irregular visitors like me. What I'd like is indeed similar to the alphabetical listing. It doesn't need pictures or summaries; just a list of titles (band name + album name, of course) and review dates. And ideally the list would be ordered by review date.

It's a good suggestion, and thanks for the clarification - it always helps to be certain of the underlying requirements, and what drives them.

Okay then: take a look at the Reviews page. It's now listing the latest 40 in reverse order below the picture-friendly display. Even at busy times (when Bapho's flogged the reviewers into working hard :D !) that should be good for over a month's-worth. I couldn't see massive value in extending by-date indexing much further than that, but what do you think? Does it cover what you wanted?

I wouldn't mind if it went back even further, but this is great already. Thanks!

A bit self-indulgent (But still something I consider incredibly useful), but we should be able to sort/view reviews by reviewer. So if you like a certain person's style or taste you can view what else they've written about.
