Community Reviews are an integral part of AboutUs and we encourage people to post appropriately worded, constructive, and informative information to better build the sense of community and wealth of practical information that can be found here on AboutUs.org. (See Community Reviews Guidelines for more information.)
Please use the following as a formatting guide for where reviews should go and how they should look...
edit Getting Started
A typical page will have the following headers:
- Additional Information
- (Community Reviews)
- Related Domains
- External Links
The "Community Reviews" and "Discussion" sections are optional and are typically not present until their need arises, so if there is not already a "Community Reviews" section simply add it below the "Additional Information" header and above "Related Domains." If somebody has already posted a review on a particular page, all you need to do is enter 2 lines below theirs and begin writing your review.
edit Logged-in User Example Review:
If you are a logged-in user you can sign your name with a link to your PersonalPage as well as the date and time by leaving four tildas (~) after the *posted by. An example review from logged-in user would be formatted like this:
==Community Reviews== ===Great Site!==== I really love [[AboutUs.org]] because... *posted by ~~~~
...which looks like this on the page:
edit Community Reviews
edit Great Site!
I really love AboutUs.org because...

edit Anonymous User Review Example
When a review is from an anonymous user (an IP address) it will be formatted like this example from A4StockPhotos.com (with three apostrophes (') around Anonymous to make it bold and the date and time manually added):
==Community Reviews== ====At last, images that aren't all from the US!==== Some great images on this site, good value too considering they are all full size. All the one's I've used have been exactly as described, professional, high quality. * posted by '''Anonymous''' on Dec 1, 2006, 2:47 pm
...and look like this:

edit At last, images that aren't all from the US!
Some great images on this site, good value too considering they are all full size. All the one's I've used have been exactly as described, professional, high quality.
