I would like to hear from others about whether there could be a potential for travellors to move between properties and not leave a review, (if they dont want to face a review from a host) and also not have a bad review posted on their/airbnb site.
I wrote a review for a guest - which actually was OK but a couple of issues. They did not leave a review, so my review will never be seen or posted. Does this leave hosts in a vulnerable position when they book this guest - as they will not have the total picture?

@CarolynneandPeter You don’t seem to understand the Airbnb review system. Reviews are posted publicly after both parties have left a review OR after 14 days have passed, whichever is sooner. So if you leave a review for a guest and the guest never leaves a review for you, your review will go “live” on the guest’s profile after the 14-day review period has ended.
Thanks for clearing up the review process. I was thinking that a guest could trash the place and never get reviewed if they didn't their own review.
By the way, what do the "Level 10" tags mean on the hosts?
@Steve And Karen Level 10 (or any other level) is an indicator of forum involvement - it just means the host has initiated or replied to a certain number of posts, not sure of exact number for Level 10, maybe a few hundred.
A review is allways posted, regardless if the opposite party is writing one or not. If not, it will be posted after the review time limit has expired. Otherwise it will be posted as soon as both reviews are completed.

I totally understand where you are coming from. I had to guests that never left a review.
The first one, I would NEVER recommend her (even without meeting her, my gutt feeling tells me that she is a "weirdo").
I find it strange that guests choose who they will stay on the basis of reading your reviews yet when it comes time for them to write one they disappear into oblivion. Highly frustrating if you know they loved it and it was going to be a great review.....I guess there has been a couple of times when I know guest hasn’t enjoyed themselves so I definitely don’t push for a review haha swings and roundabouts I guess
As long you do the right thing in your part as leaving a review it does count, don't worry to much if guest doesn't leave you a review back and yes it does affect the guest as long you have the upper hand pluse you have to remember the guest get to busy them self to wirght a review witch Host and guest have 14days to wirght a review, the main thing here always do every thing though Airbnb messaging board safty first and proof
Think of level 10 as a form of AirBnb diety?
When I see questions like this I tend to assume that the way the system works is not understood, and of course this is a pretty unimportant issue but there are things that can bite you so spend some time reading up on how ABB works.
