I'm curious as to what is the difference between a "Review" and a "Contribution."
I have rated and left comments on dozens of restaurants, hotels, and attractions. Yet every time I write a review, I get a little window telling me that I've done 6 reviews and it's only Y until my next badge. In fact, sometimes X grows as I make reviews, but then when I go to another city, it is back to 6.
In my profile I notice that it says I've made 52 contributions (that is about what I would think for reviews) and 6 reviews. If I click a city that I've visited I can see the many places that I (think I) have reviewed. I left a rating and comments, is this different than a review? Do other travelers see those comments?
It isn't a big deal at all. But I leave those reviews to help other travelers, so if they aren't seeing them I won't bother.
