Announced just now!

Answer to your question is, it displays up to 2 badges. You control what it displays, and it picks the first two brands you reviewed as a default.

and you have tested that the counters work ? (for 5+)

ah, presumably imported reviews arent counted in counter, because not linked the same way

Any *detailed* review that is in the new review format, whether imported or originally written that way, should count. If you see reviews that should count but are not being counted please let us know -- we don't want anyone to miss out!

by imported i mean when you were originally copying/pasting into review forum

Yes right. Imported reviews count -- as long as they are detailed (2+ pictures, 2500+ characters, 3+ sections...).

ah, some of the original threads had photos in separate posts

We can probably consolidate the photos into the reviews too -- contact IBtyen! If that makes them detailed they will count toward badges ;)

i see for one person, seems photos were indeed copied, and they only had photos in 4 not 5 (for 1 brand)

is this going to be option/toggle ? if reviewers do not want the 'brand' tags to display ?

The badges?

Kagehitokiri Jun 22, 16 2:44 pm

yes, sorry

can reviewers with badges have the option of 'turning off' the badges

Ah yes -- that is an option we didn't think to include but we'll put it into the next iteration; we plan to be responsive on the Expert Reviews tools, and there is already another release scheduled for this summer :)

The announcement needs to be improved to be more specific. Tell me what the announcement is about in the announcement header. That's what I've observed as standard form around here.

FT & Hotel Reviews - why the changes?
 
What's with the sudden emphasis on hotel reviews?

Does the internet REALLY need yet another hotel review site? MAYBE if you're doing something really innovative. Doesn't look like you're trying to do that. There also doesn't appear to be a way to rate reviews. So you're now providing LESS functionality than other well established sites.

This site covers a very diverse set of topics. Surely there are many other categories far more ripe for "innovation" than hotel reviews and (we don't need no stinking) badges. Even something like airplane seating would be better to cover (one primary competitor, and significantly richer data on FT). I'm sure the FT community could provide you with many other suggestions.
