As it turns out, many of my reviews express abysmal grammatical continuity. Apparently, a song can be "guitar fun to listen to" and an album can be "caught on between black and groove metal". I type my reviews on a touchscreen based tablet, and never proofread them, hence why I make these mistakes.

I noticed that there is an edit button in the review composition window. When I submit a revised version of the review, it puts it back in the submission queue, presumably the main one. I was concerned that this get me banned or my review deleted or something for spamming the queue. I wasn't sure if this was a feature actually meant to be used, or if it's down for the time being or something.

Sorry to create another useless thread.

You can freely edit past subs), but since you aren't a scribe it puts the review back in the queue.

Yeah, this is perfectly normal and you won't get banned for it. :) Also, edits are clearly marked as such in the review queue, so the mods know that it's not a fresh submission.

Another question: I'm interested in editing some of my old reviews, but some of them I only want to change the percentage score a minor amount (to more accurately reflect recent and future reviews). If I resubmit a review without actually changing the word content of the review itself, does it still have to go through the queue? Don't want to put mods through unnecessary work of reading a review that hasn't been changed beyond the score. I suppose a "notes" field visible only to them could accomplish this?

Make sure you edit the score itself by clicking the tiny icon next to it to save. That shouldn't send the review back to the queue.
