Since there is a push to expand to new social media sites, how about including them as options to add to our profile page? This would make following one another a lot easier.

Do you mean adding the feeds or just adding links?

I've seen facebook, twitter, and other social media icons on profiles [an example].

Ok, I've read the first page and I almost forgot what I was going to suggest. So I will drop my site suggestion then carry on reading!!!

My suggestion has to do with the #AskEden threads. I'd like to see them put into one sub category in the Forums. That way they are all neatly put in one place to be answered, then when they are answered, the #AskEden guru can put them where they belong.

The system doesn't work that way. The titles are edited after the fact, if the user starts a question in a subcat, that's its ID tag in the system.

This is the reason the posts have hashtags. Type #AskEden into the search and it should pull all of them up.

I think the idea of a list of options for a mentor is a good idea

why would someone publish something they aren't happy with?

Another thought, if we want to send someone a gift through the registry is there a way to make it easier to search for what they want. Right now unless the put a list on their profile you have to go through the product pages and see if they have this item on their wishlist. This can be quite tedious. Is there anyway to at least go to the product page and type in the contributors name to see if they want that product? That is if there's no way to make it so we can search for all of their 'wanted' items.

I had an idea. I know there's a section for our favorite websites/blogs, but is there any way we could have a section for our wishlists on our profile like that. Like we can choose which of our wishlists we'd like to show.

We do, if you go to the dashboard for favorite websites/blogs there's a section called 'My Wishlists'. But not everyone puts everything. Usually the affordable stuff or their most wanted items.

This is wishful thinking, but it would be great if EF incorporated used toy resales on product pages (a similar feature is available on that alternate website named after a river in South America). There seems to be a lot of products that community members would like to get rid of and this would make it easier plus provide a revenue source for EF as a commission fee. Certainly there would need to be some sort of verification process to ensure the seller is not a scam, but I think it could definitely work and be a benefit to both EF and the community.

An alternative idea would be to add resale of toys to personal stores.

I have a ton of toys I don't use but there really aren't any products that I want to swap for either. I'm sure others are in the same situation. Something like this would be a great help.

This is a bit off the subject of mentoring.

For the first 100 reviews AND the second 100 reviews, the industrious reviewer gets to choose and receive a reward assignment valued at $150 or below. You do not get that option and reward after the 200th review.

The knowledge and anticipation of working toward such an item--especially if it would normally be out of reach permanently due to monetary issues--is one hell of an excellent motivational tool!!!

Could this reward assignment be extended to every 100 reviews?

"Could this reward assignment be extended to every 100 reviews?"

It is nice to have a goal. When the caps on milestones were discussed, the 200th mark was decided as the cut off.

This is a good idea. I think honestly that someone who writes 400 reviews deserves the free item more than the person who only wrote 100!

Allo????

Is it possible when EF gives out "gift certificates" if we could those in points?

But this might just be me wanting this!

It is very much possible, according to what Stormy said in in this thread "I'm happy to announce that this is the plan! Starting Monday, all gift cards for those events will now be point additions to your account. So yay! No more spreadsheets!"

So see, ask and you shall receive.

I love your thought Beck! I remember when I first was picking a mentor I was definitely more likely picking someone from the first page. It's not fair to lower ranking mentors. There are a lot of fabulous mentors who are not on the first page. I like the idea of a rotation, and a way to refine your search by rank, etc. I'm almost discouraged myself on becoming a mentor because I know I wouldn't get that many requests since I'm lower in rank.

Okay so I didn't read through all of the suggestions so I'm not sure if it's been discussed this month but merging of thread when they are the exact same question or similar thread. I've seen so many "what's your favourite colour lingerie" threads started and it'd be nice if they were just merged into one thread that way the ten or more of them don't keep getting answered, then bumped to the front page of the forums. There has been a crazy amount of repeat posts from people. Suggesting using the search function does not seem to do any good. I personally volunteer to do this for free. I can merge them or send the forum mod the clusters of the exact same questions in many, many different threads. That way it's easier for the mod to clean up the forum. I really don't mind helping because honestly, it's getting a bit much (same topic, over and over).

We cannot merge threads, the way the system is set up simply does not allow it. We are working on changes but this will not be one of them.

I really feel that there should be stricter prerequisites for people getting voted into advance reviewing. It seems that people get voted in rather quickly with the bare minimum number of reviews, extremely poor quality reviews, and with never having had a mentor. It kind of upsets me when I have personally worked very hard and took this very seriously. So I agree with the suggestions you've highlighted here, especially about blocking upgrade while being mentored.

Also, I like the idea of the feedback system that Kindred suggested. js250's idea of "mentor of the month" could be motivating, and a special forum for mentors only where everyone can bounce ideas off of each other, and have sticky threads for FAQs to help out new mentors.

Since I'm not a mentor, I don't have an opinion from that perspective on what should change, but I'd like to see the review program a little more stricter overall so that more people take it seriously. I understand that we do want reviews from everyday customers who may not just be in it to become professional reviewers, only to share their opinions with others, but it's the advance review system that I'm mostly referring to. It just feels like people take advantage of the perks and get away with so little.
