No the review section is not going anywhere, we encourage members to use both. the rating system is helpful for at a glance reference to a members buyer/seller activity but the review section is still useful for trades or sales experiences that you feel needs to be expanded on, such as a negative one. there is nothing wrong with posting a negative review as long as the stickied guidelines are followed ( Product/Company/Member Reviews section guidelines.
) as long as discussions are kept respectful between members there should be no issue. if it gets out of hand thats what the Mods are here for.
