and I'll add it to the mail out dealing with the appropriate week of release. Don't PM me, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
But ultimately it comes down to a reviewer wanting to write about it, there is ultimately no guarantee of a review, I'm afraid!
To be fair I think it actually goes in cycles - last week there were only three 8/10s out of 15 reviews, but sure, people don't get paid, most but not all are keen to write about stuff they're expecting to like.
The other thing I'd say about that is that P4K and others that use a decimalised system actually make themselves look like there's more variation than there really is in their scores - if you go back over the last five days of p4K reviews then 12 reviews out of 25 would be 8/10 if rounded to the nearest whole number, it's only really the illusion of greater diversity!
