I had considered using this plugin. However, I am disappointed because the name of this plugin promises more than it delivers. I would have expected different groups to be evaluated based on different criteria. Instead, only members of different groups can be excluded from the evaluation, and the same criteria apply to all groups. Furthermore, once a review is made, it cannot be updated, only new ones can be made (“Enable Multiple Reviews”).Feature requests: Not allowing all groups to be evaluated Different evaluation criteria for each group Ability to update a review once it’s made “One star” should not be the minimum input, as there are sometimes criteria that cannot be evaluated at the time of review The free-text field for personal comments should be optional, and this also applies to the almost identical “Member Review” plugin
