    I just noticed that two of my recent reviews (last 2 weeks or so) have been dated for 2011. Not sure why this would happen. Can a side admin verify why this is occurring?

    Can you let folks know which 2 reviews (at least the name of the beers)? Also, were these beers that you had previously done a quick review (aka Had)? If so, when you do the full review you need to toggle the radio button between "edit" to "re-review."

    I'm not seeing this. All of your recent reviews when sorted by an incremental primary key are dated accurately. I went back several months too.

    The name of the beer that I remember is Half Pints' Phil's Pils. I did 'have' it in 2011 so I assume this is the issue. Why would it not change after I have selected 'write a full review'?

    That explains it. We'll change the logic so that a full Review of a Had resets the date, and when the updated is posted simply re-review it to reset the date.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Update: The date now updates when doing a Review of a beer that you Had previously.

    Update: I reverted this back for more flexibility. If you want to change the date, simply select "Re-Review" when submitting. Otherwise your original rating date will remain intact.
