"Lesser experienced" VA Peer Review session is a dismal failure

If there's one thing I really want to do, it's to help people, in this case with the "lesser experienced" AVAs. I mentioned this months ago, and the format is decent. But I felt there were too many restrictions, and reduced to being first-years forum goers only, VAC or VAA, whichever is oldest. Two VAs were picked up and I'm happy that they'll be helped out.
Everything was going well, the threads were set up, but it's like looking at an open faucet and no water is coming out. Two days passed and I canceled it, and I had to do all the commenting, which I had to do anyways. I just wanted them to get YOUR opinions as well, which they obviously didn't get.
In the completed projects section, you'd get people commenting on the voice work saying "should've done this or that." This is meant to give the VA a second chance in the same project, and to bump up the quality some more.
Since this is a dismal failure, tell me this:
What should I do to improve this? What should I have done differently?
I'll admit this, I'm over at the VAC more often, but that's not the problem, since BOTH sides has not given me or the VAs a single comment. So the problem might be where I posted it, for example. This is a great idea that should not go to waste. But if this happens again, I'm abandoning it.
