    I'm trying to write a review in the App Store for games I play. I am already signed in with my Apple ID and password. I rate it, put in a title and add the review. Everything is fine until I hit send. When I hit send, I get an error message that says :
    Please enter a Nickname MXNicknameWizard.NicknameEmptyError_explanation
    I hit ok and it kicks me out.
    Please help! Thanks!

    I don't know, but I've written several reviews for apps in the App Store over the years, and not once was I ever asked to enter a nickname. You might want to sign out of the App Store, reboot your device, and then sign back in before trying again.

    If you're on a beta iOS version you might not be allowed to leave a review I've had that happen myself. It might also be a bug head here Apple - Feedback and put in the details you just posted. Also try signing out of your Apple ID and then sign back in see if you can leave the review.

    I've been asked to enter a nickname twice. Once when I first started using the iPhone, and again when I upgraded to the 5. Not again since. It may use your game center name. I really don't know. Also, they don't allow reviews if you obtained the app with a promo code.

    If anyone is still struggling with this: when you're writing the review, DON'T click the stars! Click submit, it will ask you to type a nickname, then it will ask you to rate. Add the amount of stars you deem appropriate, then it will let you post. Hope this helps!

    Tried your solution for the problem of the send button just not doing anything on my new iPhone7. It did ask me for the stars, but afterwards it still didn't work; sending didn't do anything.

    I trouble shoot the problem. It is because you need to give some lengthy Nick name and may unique.
    The problem here, App Store did not show the error message.

    Venktesh you are great. You really figured out the solution. By using long nick name I was able to submit my review. I think apple store need to work on this.

    You realize that there are other countries outside the US and Europe that aren’t third-world countries right?

    None of the resolutions posted in this thread worked for me. :-( Getting frustrated in general with iphone. Try to download apps to help with iphone issues and then can't post anything about them not working.

    There is a simple way when asked for nickname.
    Try something new and unique nickname and wait for a minute if posted/sent icon isn’t shows up then go back rewrite the whole review and go for another nickname
    this is the perfect solution, Earlier I was also not able to post a review

    What I did was go to Settings > Game Center and created a nicname. I then went to post a review and didn't hit the stars before I hit send. It then asked me for a nicname so I put in the one I created for game Center and rated the stars I wanted and it worked. So annoying!

    I have the same problem,
    I rate and add a title and I write my review, everything is running smoothly and when I click done it tells me to add a nickname and I do and then when I click on Done it takes me back to my review and I click send and it doesn't do anything, I keep clicking it and nothing happens, I repeated it several times with closing the app but I get the same results each time?
    Can anyone help me with this problem please

    I've tried posting iTunes reviews for both book and audiobook. I can put in the stars, I can put in a title for my review, and I can post my review. But when I hit the submit button absolutely nothing happens. The only thing i can do after that is click on the cancel button.
