I have just geekmodded a session report that wasn't much more elaborate than "I picked red, my wife picked blue, the game was fun." It was very short and provided little information about the session.
I don't think it was worth any amount of geekgold. Or possibly 0.1 max.
But the minimum amount is 1, and the article didn't featured Poor Structure, Spam, or any other of the reasons that would allow me to decline it.
It's just not consistent with the information I see whenever I post an article: "This is a good post - please consider it for a GeekGold award" - This was not a good post.

With the lack of other options I had to approve it, but if it's that easy to get geek gold, then maybe I should start farming?

I'd like to be fair - if that post was worth 1 geekgold then I need a 100 gold reward option for the ones that are really informative, interesting, and required much effort.

Is there something I'm missing or getting wrong? What should I do in such situations?

I don't do GeekMod, but from your description, it seems like Poor Structure would have been a good enough reason to decline.

Poor Structure's description is "Overly poor spelling and grammar" - no problems here. It's poor in terms of content, not grammar.

It definitely looks irrevelant to me but Irrelevant's description is "Article is irrelevant to the forum (E.g. Not a review or session report)." - well, it is a session report. A very short, but definitely a report. The same way "I played this game" is a report.

I reject reports like that as "poor structure" (for want of anything better, such as "too short"), and as such reports do regularly get rejected, I can't be the only one to do this.

If the description in the OP of the Session Report is a valid Session Report, then I guess "I like this game!" should be considered a valid Review?

It seems sometimes things should be rejected, even if there is not an apparently perfect match for the reason, I would think.

The list of reasons is incomplete. They removed the "provide your own reason" option because apparently it was hurting people's feelings, but I didn't interpret that as changing the standards. Just choose the best reason from a bunch of bad choices.

The description of "poor structure" doesn't even make any sense. Structure is not the same thing as spelling and grammar.

I'd use Poor Structure or perhaps Irrelevant since it is, in fact, not a true session report.

Thank you for the opinions. Up to now I only geekmodded images, and there is a lot more reasons to choose from in that section.
