I can't tell you how much that annoys me, since usually it's the 1-2 star bandits that never leave a comment. It's those guys that I want a comment from, since there might be something glaringly wrong with the mission that I might need to fix. It's usually something small that sets someone off enough to give you a low rating. Still, that should never give you the right to remove it. There would be no point to a review system if you could do that. In fact, the best constructive criticism comes from the low ratings when they do bother to provide it.

My biggest problem with the current review system is that it directly ties into the search function. Any 1 star bandit can send your new mission straight to the bottom where no one will ever look at it, especially if it hasn't gotten enough reviews yet to qualify for rewards.

I had a new mission posted for days now that I've been trying to get some feedback on. I got 2 decent reviews, then I got a 2 star with no comment sending my mission all the way to the bottom half of the pile. 3 reviews... still red text. No one will find it on their own.

What would be nice to have is a new UI search function that isn't based on "Top Rated" being the default menu. But that's a request that's been on the tops from the very beginning from many authors, so I won't even get into that.

Secondly, since everyone gets a review screen at the end of a mission, if they leave a rating, they should be required to at least write something in regards to their review. If they can't bother with having something to say, they shouldn't have the privilege to leave a rating at all. That's just my opinion.
