    Why do people flag reviews? And why do they only flag negative reviews? And what does it accomplish exactly? The act of flagging a review

    You can set the forum to auto-hide posts based on number of flags. Don’t know if the ratings work the same way.

    I believe reviews are excluded if they receive a certain number of flags, and have seen plenty of positive reviews also flagged. Most because they differ widely from the average without any convincing explanation. Especially classics like: “it’s the GOAT absolute 10,” “great game but I don’t like theme so 5,” “played twice in a dark, loud bar and couldn’t understand the rules so 6,” “band sucks, 3,” “wow, could have been so much better if they designed it like in my dreams, 5.7.”
