Has anyone else noticed some suspicious essay reviews lately?
I have gotten two reviews recently (on two different essays) that gave very short comments, said everything was excellent, and did not highlight anything. The most recent essay was a first draft so I am starting to think someone (or multiple someones?) are just trying to finish reviews quickly without reading the essays. Has anyone else had this problem?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
So a few days I had a very unhelpful review and what I’d recommend is to screenshot and attach it on an email to email@example.com and they may/should be able to refund your karma for submission.
Also was there no highlights at all? If so that’s concerning as there should a minimum number of highlights needed before they can submit the review.
Hope this helps and feel free to comment if you’s like clarification as I’d be more than happy to help!
