YuriReviews has been around for more than seven years, and over the course of those seven years, we’ve featured 309 reviews thus far. I myself have been writing reviews for nearly six years, and I’ve written 171 reviews so far.
The point is, we’ve had hundreds of opportunities to put our thoughts and opinions into words, and I think most people who’ve ever written a review will tell you that it’s not easy. For me, one of the things that usually presents a challenge is trying to give a numeric value to my thoughts.
Since the beginning, YuriReviews has used a 10 point scale to critique aspects of our review subjects, but over time, it’s clear to see that we’ve fallen into the trap known as the four point scale. Long story short, the four point scale is how the mid and low ends of the review scale tend to go largely unused, so the overwhelming majority of review scores tend to range from 7 and up. A deep dive into our review scores definitely confirms this.
