I've been reviewing/approving reviews and session reports in GeekMod lately, and I come across a lot of "reviews" that are clearly promotional kickstarter previews, complete with links to the kickstarter or info about the campaign, and links galore.

Should I be approving these? I feel like they're kind of reviews in a way, but it also feels shady to approve it as a review when it's a prototype for a kickstarter, or clearly a promotional post.

Is there a separate place that previews or kickstarter reviews should be posted?

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

Btw, is the review in the game's own BGG game entry?

Thanks!

I've been clicking spam for things that are clearly advertisements for the games (eg, ones that talk about and link to the companies that produce the prototypes, or ones that have links to the kickstarters and game company websites), but I've been approving ones that are simply "I was sent a prototype of this game" with a good review and some text saying that the game is/will be on kickstarter without links.
