I just realized I had more to say about a particularly delicious meal and couldn't find an option to edit my review. Thanks!
Great suggestions. Thanks!
that sounds good!
Another option would be to make it obvious that the review has been updated (similarly to what yelp does).
For example, let's say a restaurant has a random fantastic vegan sandwich on the menu and you write a review praising them through the roof. Then, a year later, they get a new manager that doesn't care too much about the vegan crowd and the sandwich quality deteriorates... now, you could write an update that says something like this: "used to love coming here for the vegan sandwich; sadly, it's not been up to par, so try this restaurant at your own risk"
To make it obvious that the review has been updated, edits could be time-stamped.

Thanks for the feedback! A few people have requested this and I think it makes sense as well. I was thinking that reviews would be editable for a period of time after they're submitted, and then they would become read-only. Does that seem reasonable to you?
