What is your Reviews Guidelines Policy?

Reviews must be:

  • based on personal genuine experience (not based on rumor or second-hand information) with a business
  • truthful, objective and helpful
  • written in English
  • thorough and thoughtful.

Reviews can be positive and negative, but they must not:

  • be in contempt of court (contain references to legal cases currently before court)
  • contain, bad language, swear words, defamatory comments or derogatory material. Derogatory material includes anything racist, sexist or homophobic
  • contain any HTML tags or any links to other websites.

Before being published, all reviews are monitored by our team at WritersBoon.com. We try our best to ensure that each review complies with our Review Guidelines. However, if we miss a review that you believe it does not comply with our Review Guidelines, please let us know by clicking flag icon which appears next to each review. We will remove the review only if it does not comply with our Review Guidelines or our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. We are not under any obligation to remove a review if requested by the reviewer or business owner. 

Will my review show right away?

No. First, we will need to read it to ensure it complies with our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and our Review Guidelines. However, it won’t take us more than two business days. 

How many reviews can I write for the same listing?

You can only write one review per listing. 

What happens if, after being published, I want to edit/delete the review I wrote? Can I still do that?

Sorry, no. You can only edit/delete the review before it's been posted.

Under what name will the review show?

The review will show under your the name that you are registered with. 

Can I report a review from being inappropriate?

Yes. Just click on the flag icon and we will look into it. 

If I write a negative review on a listing will it be displayed?

Yes, if it’s genuine. To preserve the integrity of the site businesses at Writers Boon cannot remove any negative reviews. However, unhelpful rants or raves are strongly discouraged and we might choose not to publish them. 

What steps do you take to ensure the reviews are genuine?

There are a few things we put in place to discourage fake reviews:

  • Businesses are not allowed to post reviews on their own listings
  • Reviews can’t be too short and lacking in details
  • Users cannot leave multiple reviews on the same listings
  • Reviews must come from a user with a complete profile. 

What is your rating system?

We use star ratings. One star is the lowest you can award, while five stars are for those businesses that really impressed you with their service/product.
