I reviewed around 4 or 5 albums so far, all at least 5 paragraphs long, and it seems that they just totally get ignored. When i go to add/edit review i can see it for a few days, but now everything i wrote has been erased. The weird part is i'm not even getting an email saying it was rejected, I get nothing, just losing all my work put into writing them. Whats going on?

Whether or not one receives rejection e-mails depends on the settings in one's profile. Be sure that you have that option enabled.

It is a possibility that the mail server could be misbehaving again (it has happened before), but no other users have complained of such a malfunction recently, and in the past that malfunction has generally affected most of the userbase (including staff) when it occurred, as opposed to the odd few.

I suppose there's also the possibility that the site's automated mails are being dumped into the trash by your e-mail program, but again, this is not something that many people have had a problem with in the past.

You should save your reviews in a word document or something mang.

If you have gmail, mails from M-A get filtered into the spam folder.
