    No, they're certainly not. I looked at one of the restaurants I reviewed. My name is under the blue border with the rating of "memorable". But the text underneath it is not what I wrote. When I click on my name it goes to a page with my name at the top with a review that is not mine. There were multiple reviews of this restaurant, not one three sentence review. Plus, Roadfooders who took the photos are still not identified. This is really unacceptable and amateurish. I don't see what it is that you are appreciative of, unless they are adding back one at a time, and they're not finished yet.

    Correction...  some of them are back and they are working on them.
     
    Not all of mine are back in complete form...  but they are working on it.
     
    Things will be changing very soon and you'll be more away of it.

    Michael, go to States or Cities.  They're hiding there.

    My review of the Swiftwater Café has three sentences.  That's all.

    No, they're certainly not. I looked at one of the restaurants I reviewed. My name is under the blue border with the rating of "memorable". But the text underneath it is not what I wrote. When I click on my name it goes to a page with my name at the top with a review that is not mine. There were multiple reviews of this restaurant, not one three sentence review. Plus, Roadfooders who took the photos are still not identified. This is really unacceptable and amateurish. I don't see what it is that you are appreciative of, unless they are adding back one at a time, and they're not finished yet.




    DavidSanders...  Is this your review?

    Seems that Michael Stern also reviewed Hoosier Mama Pie Company and you may have pulled up his?
     
    His will always top yours.

    Yes, this is my review. It's odd. I just searched for it now and my review came up the second of two reviews. When I searched again, it was only mine. The other one had disappeared. Yesterday mine didn't come up at all, and I had no idea how to find it.
    The photographs are still not identified.

    Is there any way to post new reviews, or is that a thing of the past? I really enjoyed writing them and posting them. At least some of my old reviews are there now.

    Ed, they have a new general manager so I don't know anymore.
     
    You might try submitting one or at least asking about it here:
     
    support@roadfood.com
     
    That's the email address for forum questions.

    If it is there, I can't find it. There used to be links to "submit content" and I don't see them any more.

    Yes, I looked through the "about" section and nothing, not even an email about it. I'm sad.

    I'm guessing buffetbuster no longer handles the reviews.

    I had a slow night at work recently and I was fiddling around on Roadfood and found out how to submit a review, I think.  First, you have to log into the Roadfood site (not the Forums).  Separate log-ins (still not sure why it is set up that way).  Second, in the upper left corner of your screen, it says "Roadfood" (to clarify, there are two of them.  One is the orange Roadfood logo.  Do NOT click on that as it will bring you back to the home page.  Click on the smaller one in the far upper left hand corner.  It is white but will turn blue when you move the cursor over it.)  Click on that or the word dashboard that drops down when you move your cursor over the word "Roadfood".  A number of options will appear below.  Move your cursor over "Restaurants" and a side menu will appear to the right.  Click "Add New".  The review page will come up where a reviewer can begin adding the restaurant information.  Honestly, I don't know what a review snippet is or what SEO Settings mean.  I have a few new reviews I want to add and some updated info and photos for existing reviews but I haven't gotten around to it yet.  
     
    Honestly, I haven't been excited about the prospect of putting in the work when it would appear that Fexy doesn't seem to have much interest in engaging with the Roadfood membership at large in a public way.  I have emailed them a number of times about bringing back the FAQ section and a "how-to" for submitting reviews.  While I was disappointed when the ability to submit and many of my written reviews had gone away, I was happy to see that they had returned in their original form as I had written them but I am still disappointed that it took me fumbling about at 4:00am to accidentally find the way to submit reviews and that no announcement was made in the Forums or on the home page (as of this date there has not been any formal statement from Fexy about where to find it or any step-by-step about submitting, which I STRONGLY feel should be a permanent part of the Roadfood site).  
     
    Sorry to carry on so but Roadfood has brought me much joy and many friends over the years and I hope that one day soon it will become the resource that I know it can be.  
     
    Hope this post was helpful.  
     
    All the best, Billyboy

    I'm not sure I understand.
     
    Type in Roadfood.com into your browser and it should bring you to the Roadfood.com homepage with the "Latest Reviews" on the page.  On the left, there are a number of options, one of which is "Sign In / Out".  Click on it and sign in from there.  Your Username and Password should be the same as it is for the Forums.

    That is what I am doing. When I sign in and try to click on the word Roadfood as you mentioned it carries me right back to the main page. Mouni, the young lady who was the GM at Fexy told me by email that access to reviews was restricted. There are evidently a few that have access. You must be on of the lucky ones. Can you actually add a review now?

    I don't have a second Roadfood logo anywhere, including a smaller one in the far upper left hand corner.

    Took a bit, but mine appeared in a black bar across the top of the page.  When I clicked on, the dashboard appeared and everything else billyboy said was correct.  
     
    There was also a + sign on the black line after getting to the dashboard page.  Hitting + and restaurant got to the same page for submitting a review.  
     
    I did not submit a review, but did get to page where it looked like you could.  
     
    IF that doesn't work, why not email Fexy.
