Please consider reducing the number of minimum lines required for publishing a review. I am generally done in about 6-7 and have to pad out the review.

The ten line minimum is to encourage users to be creative and explain why they like or disliked a film, and provide more helpful comments to other users.

I can be creative and explain why I liked or disliked any movie or show in five lines.  This just encourages people to be wordy.  It's absurd.

I can do it in less than five. I have just given up writing reviews; or rather I start writing them and them fine I am way short of the 10 lines. I then give up and move on.

Clear, concise reviews have no place on the internet. This is the home of the long-winded rant! As can be seen by the fact that this arbitrary and meaningless "ten line" rule has gone unchanged despite four years of clear, concise comments asking for the situation to be improved.

Staff replies can be summed up as "Thank you for your suggestion. We're going to ignore it." They, of course, use more words than that; but not (ironically) ten lines' worth.
