Review Standards for Poker Tech Reviews

Expectation

Your expected to have fun.  If their is a program you are passionate about, good or bad, then write it up.  Inject your passion into your writing and the readers will get a better understanding of the product.  Fame and glory can be yours  as your name and a link to your website will be posted with every published review.  If you find that you have a knack for review writing and your reviews are informative and entertaining, then we just may hire you to write for us on a regular basis.

Rating

The ratings standard for all reviews will be based on a 4 point system.  Each point within the system should represent the reviewers feelings for the product as follows:

  1. Below Average
  2. Average
  3. Above Average
  4. Excellent

Using the above scoring system the reviewer must supply a rating for each of the following individual features:

  • User Interface
  • Feature Set
  • Usability

The overall rating for the product will be determined via an average of the three assigned scores.  (ie. A program is given the following scores: User Interface=2  Feature Set=4  Usability=1  Then the program receives an overall score of 2)

Structure

Review should open with a paragraph devoted to the programs function.  Following this the review will be broken down into three distinct sections.  Each of the three sections will be devoted to one of the rated features listed above.  The review should close with a summary where the reviewers final thoughts of the overall program are discussed.
You are encouraged to inject your personal writing style and voice into the review.  The structure is provided as a guideline so that the sites visitors will have a familiar structure while browsing the reviews.

Screenshots


Along with the review a gallery of screenshots will be included.  To facilitate this we ask that you provide at least 4-5 screenshots depicting various operating modes of the program.  If you reference a particular screenshot during the review, you should reference the screenshot by file name so it can be properly formatted when published.
