If there’s one thing we truly love, it’s sharing in all the great fitness moments you have. We call these accounts reviews. Bouquets when the service of the Gyms exceeds your expectations, brickbats when the service is shocking, chronicles of your fitness excursions – they all count. The best reviews cover the quality, service and ambiance of a Gyming experience. We appreciate a nice, descriptive as much as a quick, punchy one with useful tips.
To make sure we collectively work towards building the highest-quality content that’s useful to everyone who uses it, reviews need to be a minimum of 140 characters long to be submitted. That’s just about the length of a tweet, so it’s a convenient length even for all you micro-bloggers 🙂
Reviews that appear in the Popular section of a gym’s reviews are based on an advanced algorithm which is proprietary and confidential to Gympp. The algorithm automatically compares a review against other reviews written for the same gym to highlight the most relevant ones. This is based on numerous factors including, but not limited to, the reviewer’s credibility and social activity on Gympp. The number of reviews and followers of the reviewer has some weight in the algorithm, but reviews written by a person could still appear.
The algorithm is designed with the intention of being indiscernible in order to keep the most credible, authentic, and relevant reviews highlighted, and to also represent the voices of everyday foodies. A few bad apples will sneak into the popular section, and loads of genuine reviews will appear in everyone section. While we’d love to take subjective calls when someone feels a review is misplaced, we would rather keep this objective – it is completely automated.
Not all reviews can be popular, and a review may shift from Popular to Everyone (or from Everyone to Popular) as more reviews are submitted to the gym page or as a user gains credibility. We rely on users to use common sense when considering the validity of a review.
