I mainly use Yelp for facts about the business (hours, a convenient map, link to the website, etc.) I find the pictures more helpful than the reviews usually. I had seen Myth marked as closed but I thought that was just confusion with their old location. Back when I reviewed Myth for my blog, the Yelp listing for previous incarnation, Greek Myth Cafe as I recall, was still active and people were posting reviews there for the ‘new’ operation, which had a different menu and operating hours. I just assumed that, like the ‘closed’ marking, it indicated the owner wasn’t keeping tabs on his listing and contacting Yelp about changes.
Oh well. What I learned from this is that may be helpful is there is a way to re-sort the reviews; I had never noticed that! I’ll be playing with that and see if I think it improves my experience.
But what is this doing on the Texas/Houston board? Doesn’t Yelp have similar problems everywhere?
