As Designed User Criteria for has submitted or rated X reviews doesn't count anonymous reviews

    I have a notice that will go up if a member hasn't reviewed or rated an item yet. The notice will not go away even though my test user has submitted an anonymous review.

    It goes away if the user submits a non-anonymous review.

    Am I seeing the above because of an addon I have for User Criteria? Or does that show up with the regular showcase install?

    This is actually AS DESIGNED. The awarding of Trophies uses these criteria and it was reported as a BUG that Trophies should not be awarded based on Anonymous reviews because it would be something that people could use to figure out the anonymous reviewer. A similar bug (reported by one of the Early Adopters) is that the Top Blocks were also counting anonymous reviews and listing users that only had anonymous reviews in the top blocks along with the number of reviews, which again was easy to figure out who the anonymous reviewers are.

    I've made it (or at least attempt to) so that anonymous are completely anonymous and this includes being COUNTED as actual reviews for anything public facing (to include user criteria).

    There is no way to have different fetching processes for Trophies and Notices or Promotions. They all use the same user criteria. This is something that Group A is going to be pissed off if I do it Group B's way and vice versa. Not sure what I can do because it can't be both ways.

    Oh that makes sense. I think I pointed out the top blocks bug too. :)

    So I guess I'm Group A and Group B. ;)

    I've made the notice dismissible so hopefully that'll solve the problem for people who've submitted anonymous reviews.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    lol.. I think both you and Alfa1 caught it (which was a good catch by the way) :)

    I'll keep this marked as a design issue until I can confirm it for 100% (I have some criteria testing to do anyway, so I'll fit this in what that).
