Frequently Asked Questions

How do I participate in the challenges?
You will receive an email from us on the first Monday of the month outlining the monthly challenge.

What businesses can I review when performing my challenges?
You can review any and all local businesses. However, you are only permitted to submit a review for the same business every 3 months.

Does my content have to be approved to be counted in the monthly challenge? 
Yes. Only live content (ie. approved reviews and photos) will be accounted for in the monthly challenge, so make sure you consider the moderation period.

Will I be penalised for writing a negative review?
No. When writing a review make sure it is a true account of your experience with the business and that you follow our review guidelines.

Can I lose my Local Stars badge?
Yes. Any Local Star who has been inactive for 9 months or more will be removed from the program.
