half-Brit, do you mean qualitative, rather than quantitative, ones? ;-)

Wow, do I ever feel less than compared to Sandygranny et al. At first I thoughtful the helpful votes were a good way for me to skim through pages of reviews for a place, but after time, I saw that some reviews that got piles of votes were pretty questionable in terms of quality. The active recruiting by some reviewers (vote for me!) has me chuckling so I guess some people do enjoy being in the top ten list and seeing who else is out there.

I think you guys are missing the point on the helpful votes.

You can actually give helpful votes to your OWN reviews provided you are logged out of the account. This says 2 things:

1. You don't need to ask for people to vote, if you want it that bad you just do it yourself, which is I am sure what sandygranny did;

2. Measuring the quality of reviews by # helpful votes is a really stupid idea, one that I see over and over being advanced here in the forums;

Interesting parting thought: I have over 1000 reviews (a number I am proud of FYI ) and have less total helpful votes than sandygranny sometimes has in ONE review. If you think this means my reviews are bad, please go back to the begining of this post and read it again.

I'd completely forgotten about the List of Top Reviewers.

It interests me only in that it provides a moment of mindbogglination, *that person wrote HOW many reviews?*

It MIGHT reflect a commendable effort on the part of the contributor.

It probably reflects the OPPORTUNITY to make a sizeable contribution, not everyone gets to travel a lot or eat out a lot every year.

If I read a review that provides useful details, that shows the writer took some time and care to share information other travellers will want, then I try to remember to click on Helpful. It's mainly to acknowledge the effort the reviewer made. Sometimes it helps me make a choice. Sometimes I've been there and agree with the comments. I don't always remember to click on Helpful if I'm just having a quick glance. I hope people don't consider ONLY the high helpful vote reviews worth reading.

And I really hope people don't only bother contributing because there's a prize in it for them.
