Since we all read and write so much, I thought it would be ideal to have a capsule dedicated to reviews. I didn't add product reviews because I don't want to have marketers self promoting those. Unless the capsule automatically prevents self promoting products.
It would be nice to have a four or five star (or more) rating system built into a review capsule like Rotten Tomatoes or Goodreads. Maybe HP could sum the ratings and come up with an average rating after multiple reviews.
Personally, I think product reviews are fine, as long as they're fairly unbiased. You'd be surprised at how many reviews are farmed out to content mills. I wouldn't want that to happen here
That maybe the reason the capsule doesn't exist, too open for abuse. I am hopeful that they can design it well enough, it would reduce biased reviews. The nice thing is books are pinnable on Pinterest. Ratings would suit it well.
We have a Ratings capsule that does exactly this.
Add the Ratings capsule to your Hub, and select 'Single Person Rating.' Per the instructions in the Rating capsule: "If you are writing a review, select Single Person Rating or Multiple Person Rating. If you are writing a recipe, select Recipe Rating."

I went into one of my older hubs to add a photo and got this message:"It looks like some images in this capsule appear to be reduced in size. Note that saving any changes made to this capsule will update the size of these images to fit the capsule."After adding a new photo, all the...

Quite a few of my Hubs have related Hubs. I try to put a few links in a Hub to another related Hub when it seems appropriate. But I see that the editors often remove them. I have tried to find out why in past forum postings without any luck. I assume it's because of loss of page rank. Is that the...

Maybe I missed this change but as I was doing some editing, I saw that some of the amazon and ebay ads have changed size. Some are so big that it throws off the layout of the hub. Not good. It looks bad in some cases, in others it just creates annoying white space. I tired to rearrange a few to fix...
