What about the review is "Badly Formatted"?

Hello,

I had two of my reviews declined, with the reason given: 
"Badly Formatted
Your contribution has been declined.Your contribution did not meet our formatting standards. Please review our submission guides."

I have written them in Word and then copy pasted it in the submission field as with the other reviews that were accepted. So I don't know what went wrong here.

Yes it's a long review but other reviews of the same length have been accepted before. So can you please tell me what I did wrong so I can fix and resubmit them? 

Thank you very much.

Pitt,

If you've received a red rejection message indicating a Unicode character is not supported, it means some hidden code is preventing the document from being approved when you cut and paste from Word or any other word processing program. 

Two possible ways to resolve this. 

  • Cut and paste the document from Word to a text file like WordPad. Then cut and paste the review from the .txt file onto the User Reviews form. 
  • The longer method would be typing the reviews directly onto the User Reviews form.
I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions.

Hi Pitt Hackmann,

Apologies, it looks like these were rejected in error. Please can you resubmit the reviews and provide the submission references and I can make sure these get approved for you.

Thanks,
Will
