Kobo Reviews

While I was trolling through for books on Kobo's website, I noticed that they've already implemented a customer review system. I'm not sure how long it's been there already, but I thought to make some reviews of the books I like. I even saw a review on one of those books. So I wrote some reviews, then a pop-up says that they will be moderated and will be posted within 72 hours.

I got an email today saying that my reviews has been posted and they even gave me a link to view them. But my reviews weren't there. In fact, all reviews aren't there anymore, including the lone review I saw.

Has anybody noticed the review section on the site? Did they just remove today? I really think it's weird. I even tried changing the country code on the url in case it's region specific, but no luck.

Can you guys try and access this link and see if my the reviews are up?

HERE!!!!

It's not visible in Australia either. But, that book isn't available either. And I don't see a link to create a review.

What it probably means is that the review system is a work in progress. It's possible they have put the create a review link up early to get a few reviews as seeds for when they go live properly. Or it could be a mistake and some code went up earlier than it should have.

No review to be seen from Germany. Neither an invitation to write one.

@davidfor: Not only the review system is a work in progress, the whole Kobo website is - with some really old bits of code turning up out of the blue sometimes. For instance, I've recently been getting the old design of the website occasionally; only when I'm not logged in, though, and with a completely broken search engine that brings up stuff absolutely unrelated to the search terms. Oh, and to my great amusement, the old design runs the old ad telling me to upgrade my browser because I'm missing out on their grand new design. (I'm always running the latest version of Firefox.)

I can see it in New Zealand, even though the book is not available for sale here. It might depend on browser, I am using Firefox.

I am using Firefox and an account in Australia.

Using Chrome, I see the "Customer reviews" section under the other books. It has a "Write a review" link. Logging in to a an Australian based account, I can see the review.

Of course, now I go back to Firefox, and the review is there. I swear they weren't before.

I'm in the UK. On Firefox all I see is an invitation to
'Be the first to write a review. Write a review >'

If I view the same page in IE I see one 4-star review, titled 'Real-life Benders'

Kobo is the most awesomest ever at web design!!! (!!!!!)

I can see my reviews again!!! I don't know what happened... Maybe the review system had been (maybe still is) a work-in-progress... Anyway, it's awesome that they are now implementing a review system since that's what I tend to look at first. Then I'd go goodreads. At least now regular-users will have an idea on what they're in for...

Anyways, thanks for helping, guys!!!
