I have an issue that I really don't know a good way to solve, but even though my Tech. Writer told me to never come to a higher up with an issue and not a solution I feel like it still needs to be brought to light.

THERE ARE NO PRODUCTS TO ASSIGN TO STUDENTS! There are seriously like two vibrators that are less than $30 and that have less than 3 reviews, we can't do lingerie, and the beauty products are filling up with reviews fast. It's to the point where I almost want to stop accepting students because it's so disappointing when I can't find any products they'd be willing to review.

I don't really have any suggestions other than making it maybe 4 reviews, but I have a feeling that that would be a huge technical issue. *sigh*

I know exactly how you feel on this.
And I also heard that nothing by Pipedream can be used as an assignment either.

The traffic idea would be good -- I think it would help me understand which reviews/types people read more and so can write more like that.

That's really not what it's about though. Reviewing isn't about trying to gain a following of people, it's about writing reviews that are helpful to people outside of our community so they get a feel for the toy.

Our audience is the general public, not community members. (That sounds weird, but I hope it makes sense.)

Students are more than welcome to purchase whatever they wish off the site for review. Mentor pushes are to help reviewers get their feet wet, it's not standard issue and a lot of mentors refuse to assign free product to reviewers.

Sorting by price is something I would DEF be happy about! Good suggestion! I think in my head, "wow, there's nothing I would change!" then I read all the suggestions and realize there ARE some small flaws!

I'm not sure if something like this has been mentioned yet, but it would be nice on the products that have different tastes/smells, that the reviews placed would be made specific to the flavor/scent. I'm looking into getting some massage oil for a friend and I'm trying to find reviews on a certain scent, but the various scent reviews are all meshed in together, making it very difficult to find a review specific to the scent I'm looking for. Does that make sense? I think it would be smart if there was a way to make the reviews show up for the specific product when you click on the different scent.

Well...I agree. But, there is a way to figure out which review belongs to which flavor/scent.

For instance, this review is for the strawberry flavor.

This review is for the watermelon flavor.

This review is for the orange flavor.

When you're reading the reviews, just look over at the bar with the products listed, the flavor/scent will be placed at the top of the list with a faint green border around it. I realize this might be a little difficult if a product has a lot of reviews on it, but it's what we have to work with for now.

it's just frustrating to have to look through a bunch of reviews to find the ONE scent I want to read reviews on.

Is it possible to have tasks transferred to an administrator not count toward the daily maximum?

Thank you dear mentor. I was having a hell of a time finding something to do and you are a great help. Oh and I am still looking for my review to do over for ya. Thanks again.

I second the suggestion for a filter on the product search to "less than three reviews" rather than simply "no reviews." That would be a HUGE help.

I also wanted to suggest that the gift cards be available to purchase either in increments of $10 rather than $25 or (if at all possible) any dollar amount the purchaser chooses. There are lots of times giving a small gift card to another member would be easier or more appreciated than buying a cheaper item off their wish list. As it is, you'd have to get a $25 gift card. The option for lower amounts or odd amounts ($30, $40, $60, etc.) would be much appreciated! This has come to my attention especially now that Alice started the Toy Swap thread. If we want to trade for X dollar amount, a lot of times that dollar amount in a gift card isn't able to be purchased.

I realized that because of the new layout, when you try to grab something like lingerie, in your assignment cart the little box that usually comes down asking which size becomes covered up by the banner across the top page. This wouldn't be a big deal if you're just grabbing it to write a review, but I was trying to get it to do my monthly assignment, and had a hard time getting any, because I wasn't able to grab it in the 3x/4x size.
Is there a way this can be fixed?

Suggestion to be able to search for a member on the send a gift option. Many times I want to send a random gift; I have to go hunting for an item that someone wants. And usually end up gifting them something random because they don't have a wish list posted on their profile. I would love the option that only allows those who are signed in to pull up a wish list that is public from that single person. Even if it's a single wish list. We could each pick one that would be okay to show up on the search and it's the one that comes up with the search of the person's name.

I hope I make sense. I'm off to hunt some more. I'm trying to gift out something right now.

Hello, I would love to see a top friends option, or somehow to find our friends more easily from our profile page.

Thank you

I'm a bit new to Eden but I'm totally loving it! I do agree with several of the suggestions that are listed on here especially the assignment filtering, advanced vs mentor program, and definitely the "View All" option on the pages.

If they decide to do it,it'll be twice as easy ...
This, please, please Eden. Searching for an assignement product during 5 hours is not human.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but, I'd love the ability to edit my polls. I don't make them often but, there are times I mess up and don't catch it until I already posted.

I also agree on assignments. I spend a great deal of time trying to find one and end up getting told that I cannot do it. I have yet to find one for this month.

As far as the polls are concerned, by their very nature, they cannot be edited. It's like this no matter what site you're using, it's just the way the code was written, so be very sure that you're poll is correct before you post it.

When it comes to assignments? While free assignments are incredibly enticing, there are several ways to review items without going through that process. Everyone is welcome to review things they've purchased and it helps to keep an open mind about products. You might love something you thought you would have hated at first.

1. A "remove all" option for comparison lists.

2. A "last post read" link from the forum page.
