Wrong Author Displayed in Campground Review

I was looking through the Campground Reviews this evening and came across something unusual. In the Pennsylvania Campgrounds, I was looking at Ryerson Station S.P., a review I entered back in August of 2006. The reviewer's name should have been me but, instead, shows as Rich Pratt. Sorry, Rich, but I wrote that review. Under Rich's name, it shows him being registered in November of 2008. If this is true, how could he have posted a campground review that has a Review Date of Tue, August 22, 2006?

What happened? Can this be corrected and my name put back in as the rightful author?

Too bad I didn't have a copyright on my review. I could have sued.

I'll get it taken care of for you Frank. Rich's name was under your OP review of Baylor Beach, too, & I caught that one a while back & reported it, but I see it's still listed under Rich. If you know of other reviews of yours that got mis-labeled, let me know.

There was some hiccup when the conversion took place last year. Several of mine were mis-authored, too. I'm sure there are more, just no one's noticed yet.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I found Rich's name assigned to two other reviews I wrote- Homestead RV Sales, Service and Family Campground in Ohio and Hidden Springs Campground in Maryland.

Frank...
I brought the issue up here and asked members to check their own reviews. I would like to mention it again. Please check your reviews and let an Admin know so they can resolve the issue.

Check OP's & added reviews

Members will also need to check on reviews they added to a campground entered by another member. A member's reviews will not show in their listings unless they were the originating poster.

In my case, I'm cross-referencing my camping log journal with reviews I made to find the ones where I wasn't the OP in order to verify those have my name on them instead of some other member's name.

I brought it up a long time ago and no one wanted to do anything about it. I guess it's not that big of a deal... it's the review not the author thats important.

Not if it's YOUR review some other member is getting credit for. I know when I take the time & make the effort to put in a review, I want members to know that's MY review.

It usually takes me at least 2 hours to do a review - that includes the time to take photos at the campground, download them to my laptop, figure out which ones to upload & resize them for here, then write up the initial review & add the secondary review so I can rate it & put in how much I paid. Now, I don't have to be this thorough; lots of reviews are WAY shorter than mine & no doubt, took way less time to enter. But I try to describe as much of the campground, it's facilities/ammenities &, if possible, give a tip on a nearby attraction or place to eat. I think members appreciate this. I know I do when I'm reading a review & trying to decide whether or not to make a reservation at a particular campground. I've chosen to stay at several campgrounds based on the reviews, especially those with pics, of members here. JMO.

Gee, I apologize for stirring up a hornet's nest. I didn't know I was beating a dead horse (or at least a horse that seems to have been ignored).

We are still looking for some solutions here and have developed a way to move the initial listing to the rightful poster - it's the additional review that is causing some extra head scratching... but this issue has not been forgotten.
