I sent an email about that and was told, "Though you are unable to see reviews posted for the items you are getting rejected on, they do all have the maximum amount of assignments out on them (or at least that current inventory allows.) Unfortunately, there is no way to see this on your end when making requests" So, in other words, it still says it is available even though it isn't so if you request something, you will most likely get turned down. Where does this leave those of us that want to review and contribute?
I have to edit what I wrote because I just saw your earlier response.
You can't find anything to do a buyout on? Wow, I am surprised that in two years you haven't been able to find anything! If nothing is worth buying, then why do you want something for free to review?
I'm going to leave the rest of my comment because it could still be useful to some, just maybe not you:
RE: "Where does this leave those of us that want to review and contribute?"
People can still buy their own toys and review them. As long as they are bought from Eden, you can get points for the review. If not from Eden, you can still review, just not for points.
I think now, with fewer people reviewing is the perfect time for you to increase your visibility and get your rank up. I bet if you turn in some great reviews you will be more likely to be chosen for free assignments! Especially as someone with 18 reviews under her belt, you would quickly advance and show how reliable you are to admin, plus the higher rank would qualify you for nicer free assignments when you do get them.
My understanding is that there has been so much abuse that they are looking carefully at who they give the assignments to. I know I've read some
shitty (excuse my language, but come on it's accurate) reviews from some people for those free items. I believe this is just one area they are attempting to fix and in the meantime, they have to assess members based on current activity, as well as previous. A lot of people left and others tried to sabotage reviews, so I think Eden is trying to decide who is reliable and trustworthy. It presents a problem for those who haven't caused any problems, the honest members/reviewers, to be sure.
But, you can still contribute and every honest review is valuable. I am currently editing and would love to see more of the experienced reviewers submitting! Please consider it, but I sure understand if you are not in the financial situation to buy anything right now (I have trouble with that myself, ugh).
