It looks great! Just a question--is it possible to answer one of "vroom" or "bee" without answering the other?

There is a problem. The experience section is not showing up in the published version of the reviews.

N/A is an option for both vroom and bee, so they can be answered for any toy. I would imagine, though, that if one is there, the other is too... can't think of an exception off the top of my head.

That's in the process of being updated- don't worry, whatever you write there is still saved in the website and will appear on the review page in a few days.

I was just wondering, for examples of non-vibrators. Like masturbation sleeves can be very noisy, but many don't vibrate? It's more of an academic question than anything else.

It looks great. I noticed, while checking my RSS feeds today, that the unique titles show up in the feeds, but not on the actual review pages. I'm sure this is just a bug that will be fixed soon, but it was worth pointing out.

I wanted to wait to comment on the new system until I had posted my first review using it. I think the new guidelines are very helpful. However, I had often refrained from including information like lube compatibility, cleaning instructions, and suggested use of condoms from my reviews because they are often included in the product description or the materials selection of the webpage, or could be added as comments to the review. I think this information is important, but I was forced to whittle out a good portion of my review in order to conform to the 500 word maximum while including this information. I would request raising the maximum word count to 600 words or so if you want us to include these technical points in the body of the review itself. Just my thoughts.

Ick, there's a 500 word max now? I'm not excited about that...

As far as I am aware, the review policy has always been 300-500 words. Many times I have to cut some text out to conform to the 500 word limit. I guess one could use the main body of the review to hit points about use (up to 500 words) and then use the experience section to talk about their experience.

I just submitted my first review since the changes, and I like the form. I do prefer it this way. I didn't notice anything new about the requirement though. Weren't we always supposed to include material and safety concerns? Maybe I just joined after those changes were implemented, but I think it's a good idea to have them in the reviews. Not every shopper likes to look through the properties AND read the reviews, or visa versa.

Also, what is up with text displaying over the top of the buttons? This appears in reviews too, on the button for posting a comment. Super annoying; I can't wait until it gets fixed.

I'm curious about something, what is the word limit on the "experience" section?

Ah. I don't see why not- vroom is N/A, and put in an appropriate bee. I think it's a good use of those scales. =)

Thanks! That sounds great.
I don't think I'd ever use over 650, but it is great to be able to go up to 800 if the product demanded a lot of detail.

Why does there have to be a limit on the number of words that we use in the first place. Is bandwidth the issue here because hell I don't see how that compares to the amount of scripts that is used here. Don't get me wrong scripts are great for the UI (well IE and Opera aren't always happy, but Firefox works them out just fine) but still, fi there is that much source code in place just for "looking" then there should not be a limit on the number of works that we use. Does anyone know if some special individual ASCII chars count as words? Ex: 32(space), 10(line feed), 13(carriage return), 255(none-breaking space)

(If you are confused about ascii: Go Here --> link )

I am thinking that the reason there is a word limit is so someone does not post a review that takes an hour to read. In my best guess, it is for shopper convenience and ease of use, period.

I'm finding the new form looks pretty sloppy. Maybe instead of the expanding guidelines, a link to another page?

Honestly, I can't figure the purpose of the experience area. Isn't the entire point of a review to tell about your experience..?

I actually like the expanding guidelines being there, I am thinking that it forces some people to acknowledge that there are actually rules involved with writing the reviews. Before when you had to go digging for the guidelines, I'm sure almost none of the new reviewers actually went and looked at them.

I have been using the experience sections for additional tips or to include a more personal story. I think it depends a lot on a person's writing style and how much "detail" is put into the review. Some reviews are more like reading erotica than a review, and I think the "experience" section helps separate this from the details and facts for those people that don't want to read about how fast the cock pounded in and out of her cunt. Some people actually just want to know how well the toy works without finding out how far it made someone squirt. I really like it for this, and of course it's optional!
