1. There are a LOT of people who have submitted one or two reviews and then have never done anything else here on the site.
2. There are more than a couple of contributors who have decided not to continue their relationships with Eden for various reasons.
3. Sometimes people need to "take a break" from Eden, whether by choice or by circumstances.
4. Sometimes contributors appears as "experts" for certain products/types of products, but said contributors are not actually active on Eden any more.
An "Inactive" status be available for contributors who are not currently active on Eden.
The "Inactive" status would show on contributors' profiles. Those who are "Inactive"' would also be moved from the "all reviewers" category to their own "inactive" category. "Inactive" contributors would also NOT be included as "experts" in the automated calculations that choose said "experts".
I realize this will likely be a serious computer programming ordeal that I can't really understand, but I also see that it would be of some pretty decent benefit to the general consumers.
I've come up with some options to "vote for" concerning this matter. Other comments are welcome. I think if we have ideas like this that we want implemented we should give as much input as possible to assist EF in making changes.
I believe the original idea for this was Red's, but I am not sure. Just wanted to make sure I don't take credit for a great idea that wasn't mine!
