2010-05-04 15:08:27   You can edit any page by clicking the edit button at the top of that page. —JoePomidor

2010-05-04 19:37:10   Edit! Thou art empowered as much as we all are. Make the words correct, and let others follow and add to what you have written! Go forth and Wiki! —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2010-05-21 13:15:28   Sorry, I will stop. I thought it would be helpful, since I usually check both before visiting a place. —scrizer

2010-05-21 13:17:59   No problem. I'd wanted to suggest this somewhere, but it seemed directly editing a page is the only way to do that. —scrizer

For future reference, you can post it to the General Discussion area. —EBT

Thanks, and sorry about the clutter. Also, I'm a UC Davis student and in no way affiliated with yelp. —scrizer

  • Don't worry too much about it. I'm sure it was good-intentioned. —ebt
  • No worries... it's not a terrible idea, it just doesn't seem to quite fit most people's view of what is appropriate for an entry about a local restaurant. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwardsi

However, Yelp does engage in very aggressive marketing for their advertising packages (they could not understand what I meant by "No thank you"). And if you sign up for the minimum $300/month package then your reviews and ads will be highlighted when people are searching yelp for your type of business. Which, in my opinion, defeats the purpose of a review site. —DagonJones
