How to submit a review of a mod?

I wanted to submit a review of a mod
https://custom.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=4214
and it states:
QuoteYou must download this customization, install it and try it before you can post a review

I have done so (on all three counts) but can't seem to find any way to create/submit a review, which I'd like to do.

Guidance welcome :)

I believe the Cust.Site is a bit of a work in progress still, but that's a very good question - I couldn't figure out this either at the moment.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

It's not working at the moment, but a fix will soon be live

It seems not
Quote from: review page on this modYou must download this customization, install it and try it before you can post a review
There are currently no reviews on this customization
System requires from us to download and to install and then try it and then to try to post review which seems to not be possible. For example, I already downloaded many mods in past and it is not possible to download them, also downloaded this mod just to see if it unlocks ability to review, but no.
Maybe SMF actually detects and locate what we do after downloading mod and where we are using it (just joking on this)  :D
Reviews should be available to everyone - members with some amount of posts for easier moderation. Many of us tested so many things, had different ideas and we can post similar mods in review and other useful info there.

Ok so now few minutes later after downloading this mod, it unlocked option to review, but that means I have all over to download/delete next mod that I want to comment.

Or maybe not:
QuoteAn error has occurred
Token verification failed. Please go back and try again.

I really think now that after downloading mod, SMF is following where the mod is installed.

we dont track where any mods are installed. we dont track where SMF is installed unless you opt into the stat collection and even that does not actually track your URL.

The amount of tracking done is very minimal.  Mostly this is used for popular customization information.  The review limitation is a good attempt to reduce spam bots or other abuse of the review system.
