#206 closed enhancement (fixed)

Replying to an old review should not bump it to the top of the list

Plugin reviews seem to be ordered by reply date meaning that every time I comment on an old review it gets bumped back to first in the list.

This has the effect that I am put off replying to 1 star reviews as I don't want those showing on my front-page but 1 star reviews are often the ones that need replying too as often they are support requests.

Spoke to @otto about this at WCEU and he was of the opinion that this shouldn't be happening, hence this ticket.

As an example see the reviews page for BackUpWordPress (http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/backupwordpress), I've replied to a 5 month old 1 star review and it's now first in the list.

Fixed: Date showing on the review listings will now show the correct time of the review being made, instead of the time of the latest comment.
