I had an incident where I'd written a very long and thoughtful review for a story that had no reviews, and then when I was posting it, the thread had been closed. How can I be sure that a thread won't be closed? Now, I try to read all the reviews the person has posted, but I still can't really tell if the post is valid. I don't want to discriminate new members (being fairly new myself), but this makes it a bit difficult. I don't want to use half an hour for a review and then be unable to post it. But I would like to be able to post reviews fairly promptly. So my question is: what is a long enough review. Two thoughtful sentences? Three? Four? Seven? When do I know that the two reviews are valid and I can start reviewing that person's story? I hope this is the right place to post this.
