My App Store reviews NEVER get published?

I have written about 10 reviews on apps / games and have never had a single one of them get published. I don't use bad language or anything, but all of my reviews are always negative - usually because of a nasty IAP system, like the one in Two Dots. I wrote my review of that several days ago and it has not been published. Just like every other review I wrote has never been published.

Is Apple playing games with our reviews?

Mine always get published. Even the negative ones. Don't know what is wrong with your account. Maybe it's flagged.

Can't imagine why it would be.

Usually you have to wait a few hours that they appear. Another thing is, that Apple divides the app store in to different country divisions. So if you review an app in the US, it won't appear in the UK iTunes store and so on.

Yep mine have always been published, however they show in the UK app store not anywhere else. I did assume they would be 'worldwide' but just seems to be by region.

I always tend to write a good sized paragraph (or more) as i personally feel small one liners just often say 'fake' to me or 'i'm entering a competition' !

I always thought it was because you couldn't see your own reviews 😂

Yeah, I don't understand what goes on during their review approval process. I've never had one not post, but I've waited 4 days for one to finally post. No idea why it takes so long (or why it's seemingly random...).
