Hi all,

Revyu.com itself is not exactly dead, but more "resting" (in kinda
Monty Python style). The Review vocabulary (predating but adopted by
Revyu) is stable, though note the deprecated terms (see [1]).

IMHO the Review vocab is perfectly lightweight but really flexible.
Chaals, my best advice would be to sub-class the Review class to
reflect the aspects you want people to be able to rate, e.g.
CleanlinessReview, PromptnessReview and then use the existing
properties. We never started down this path in the main vocab cos
clearly it's very site specific, but I'd be interested to see what
emerged.

HTH,

Tom.
