Finding Sports & Outdoors reviews

Anyone have any luck in finding a decent way to locate the Sports & Outdoors reviews? I know we have the just-in for the section, but that seems to be missing a large amount of reviews that are in Sports & Outdoors, but not in the just-in. I've been diving down through the master just-in page, but that's pretty time consuming.

RE: Finding Sports & Outdoors reviews

The new reviews do seem very slim. I don't have time to try to figure out what I'm missing so sadly, I'm going to just have to wait until they fix the mess. Of course if someone has discovered an easiy work-around that would be better.

Finding Sports & Outdoors reviews - seems to be fixed

It looks like with last night's upgrade to the system, almost all of the Sports & Outdoors reviews are now popping up in the Just In for Sports & Outdoors.

Not only that, Advisors seem to have their Most Helpful button back.

Though now Sports & Outdoors has dropped off the MPA/MPR lists...

I guess we fixed one problem...on to the next!

Well,
I'll sacrifice a back end feature for front end functionality.

Hmm, I just noticed a side effect though. I dropped from a top 50 author to a top 1000 author. Sigh, I have a lot of catching up to do.

Yeah...it seems that in calculating the top authors, all the S&O reviews have turned invisible.

I'm sure they'll fix it eventually...like you said, having the category just work is good enough for now.

It's still a little depressing to drop in popularity by about 950 places though.

I imagine it would be. Thankfully I've got my reviews spread out amongst enough categories that the drop wasn't too bad.

just wondering

Just wondering if you think the views and placement will come back when the problem is fixed? Back to top 50 for puckmugger and back on the board for me?

RE: just wondering

I believe that is one of the bugs they are working on.

I sure hope so! I think Garrett has said 'yes' to questions like this elsewhere on the boards but I can't find the exact thread.
