I took a moment to write about full reviews on Lunch. I figured I might say a little bit about Micro Reviews. There's no writing lesson here. There's nothing I can say about writing a good Micro Review here. I have to admit that I don't do the Micro Review stuff very often. I only ever wrote one.

Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill.

Honestly, I prefer the extensive full reviews, but a Quick tip does have its uses. Sometimes, you don't feel like writing a full review because the movie isn't worth it or maybe you're too busy at the time.

Before you post your QUICK TIP, re-read it from the perspective of someone who knows absolutely NOTHING about the topic you're commenting on. "THIS ROCKS" or "THIS SUX" is of no value as a review but it has no value as a Quick Tip either. Without a tiny bit of guidance on the topic, a QUICK TIP is just so much annoying background noise! Sadly, far too many members are making that noise without adding any value to the substantive content of the community.
A Quick Tip is a way to share your opinion in a quick-take format. To quick tip, rate the topic and then post a short review. A quick tip can be posted towards the top of any topic page. If you have more to say, just click on the "write a review" tab.
To share your quick tip on other social networks, simply check the Twitter and Facebook boxes. The more you share, the better Lunch can refine your Similarity Network and connect you to people and information you'll like.
