Why can’t I edit my critique? Knowledge Base

We chose to prevent editing of critiques after they have been published for a number of reasons:

  • Since we allow critics to compose their critiques in a "Draft" state, we feel that there are plenty of opportunities for critics to review their opinions before publishing them. This is part of what it means to craft a well-considered critique.
  • Like the world of print publication, once your words are out there, they can't be taken back. Self-publishing and e-publishing aside, we want our members to have a taste of the industry to help cultivate good working habits, e.g., checking for composition, format, SPaG , etc.
  • From an administration standpoint-we need to ensure that complaints are traceable1, that offending material cannot be easily destroyed without some administrative intervention.
