Thanks for all the information, that did help me and answer a few questions I had. I was just trying to make sure I didn't mess anything up and do to many reviews at one time or anything that was wrong. I am trying to get all my reviews done that way I can become more advanced and help out other memebers. Thank you for all your help.
You're welcome! You submitted everything just fine and they are waiting to be edited. As long as the system allows you to submit reviews, you may. (I do not know if they have set a limit for how many you may submit in 24 hrs, but there may well be one.) However, in order to gain points for the reviews, you need to have bought the item at Eden and you may only do a maximum of 1 review per day if you want the 500 points for it. Let's say you bought 4 items from Eden and you wrote reviews for all of them. If you submitted all 4 reviews on the same day, you would only be able to get point rewards for 1 of them and the rest would just be published, but not gain you points. Now, if you waited until the next day and submitted 1 more, that would get you points for that day. This is why some people prefer to only submit the maximum allowed per day and space them out over days to get their points for them.
Here's another tip that I can give you based on observation: As tempting as it may be to submit all your reviews in a row, it may not be the best way for you, regardless of the points situation. I know that often people will vote and rate your first published review, but when they see more and more in a row, all by you, they tend to read fewer and fewer of yours and rate them. I think it may be because they want some variety, I don't know. All I know is it's something I have noticed in the past (not 100% all the time, bu often enough) and I just wanted to mention it. Of course, there is absolutely nothing wrong with submitting them all together; you can do it until the system says you can't. I just wanted to mention it in case it helps give you an edge. Another reason to wait in between submitting reviews is to wait and see about feedback on your reviews. You will perhaps want to perfect your next reviews, incorporating any constructive criticism.
The more people vote on your reviews, the faster you can get to a higher rank! Also, if you apply for advanced reviewer status (after publishing your first 3 reviews), you want people to have voted on your reviews, so when they check you out to see if they should be one of the 5 votes you need to become advanced (within 2 weeks you need to get 5 votes to advance, otherwise you have to publish 3 more reviews before you can re-apply), they will be more likely to vote for you.
One more tip and this is the most important of all my tips
: Please read several of the highly rated reviews for the items you have and want to review (or for other items if you don't want to be influenced too much before writing). Nothing can tell you as quickly as that can exactly what people are looking for in an extremely useful review. I know when I first came, I was used to Amazon style reviews which are all over the place and the reviews on other sex toy sites which were usually brief and not helpful. Once I started reading the better reviews here, I was blown away and it was also much easier to see what people were looking for and why they rated the way they did. If you do nothing else, please just read a few reviews from js250, Edeneve, Rossie, charmedtomeetyou, Mwar or ArchVixen (to name a few of the excellent reviewers. Of course, you can read mine, too, LOL!). All have different styles, too, so don't think you are expected to fit a certain mold. What people want to know can be written in any style you like, just as long as the info is included.
Sorry if all that info is a bit jumbled, I have a migraine coming on (again,
) and it's getting harder to think. Remember, you can ask me anything, publicly or privately, or you can contact any other member, such as Edeneve who offered her services just above this comment. You will find most people on here are very friendly and willing to help, even if you contact them and they don't know you!
