I suggest the mentor program as well. They can help you out with the whole site and much more than just reviews.

I am open ... just throwing that out there!

If you're an advanced reviewer (via voting or mentor program) you can get free products to review. If you go through the mentor program, you get 2 free products to review.
Are students limited to just 2 free products? I haven't had the case where I requested more, but I guess I thought we could.

OH!

No...I was talking about the format of discussion. I think these go better when they are more free-form. This is a great group and I don't want to stifle people with too much structure.

Hey, JR, is there any way you can speak with The Powers That Be about getting the regular review template word limit bumped up a bit? I hate when it tells me I've been too chatty in my reviews.

I'm wondering this as well. But a few times now my students got one assignment and just stopped writing. That is my biggest pet peeve as a mentor- they just, stop. Then you never here from them again. I hate dropping so many people but when they sit there on my list for months with no activity it drives me crazy!

I would have been lost without a mentor to show me around.

Oh, good, I hate long distance lecherous looks.

My eyes get all crossed when I hop the border and everything.

You can check out the list of available mentors at the bottom of the Community Corner, as far as I know. You can see what items they specialize in and if they have any requests of their mentors. Then you can request to join their class!

so true, I was also told that even having porn in the house even if my kid never sees it and doesnt know where we hide it is grounds for a call to DCFS, like WTF! I am a parent, not a monk, sex is natural

They get two <$30 or less products to review separately. I've never heard of anyone really going past that.

I'll see what I can do. The ext. template doesn't have a word count...I think.

I second this too. Or maybe just revamping it a little more period. I also dislike when there is barely anything in them and they are so short, maybe bumping up the minimum a bit too.

I've had this happen, too. I wish there was something that could be done. Someone suggested requiring a CC be on file (I have no idea who or where this was said but props to you) so that if they don't fulfill their obligation of writing a review, they could be charged, and while I don't know that the idea is perfect I think that it would be a deterrent to people just saying "screw it" and leaving.)

I would prefer a mentor program anyway. I have always loved to write reviews on any product I get and the extra help would be great since I always love input and suggestions anyway.
