First of all, let me say that I like reading. One of the appeals of this site that I found is very well-written reviews (usually at least), which I enjoy reading a lot. As I read a lot of reviews, it's only natural that some reviewers become my favorites, which I enjoy reading more than the others.

Now, here's a problem: How do you find all the reviews done by the same person? Well, apparently you can't. The only way (and trust me, it's a really hard way) is to go through all of the reviews on this site to find out whether or not a certain review was written by that one reviewer that you like.

Could it be possible to create a certain section where all reviewers would be listed, so that after clicking on one of them you could bring up a page that contains a list of all the reviews that they've written?

If you like reading reviews on this site and also have your favorite reviewers, support this idea by posting in this thread! Smile

There is one workaround, e.g. to find all reviews by Theron you could enter the following into google:
Code:
site:animenewsnetwork.com/review "by Theron Martin"

Whoa! Thanks. It seems I'm not really familiar with all the tricks that Google has.

Now make it so that all those reviews would be on one page & lined up in alphabetical order and it's perfect. Neutral

Did you read my post above? The trick you have posted is almost the same as the Google one - results are not in alphabetical order and across many pages, which makes it look really chaotic.

Yeah, but I posted that back in 2009. Plus it has more info than just the basic code Shiroi Hane gave you.
