On vacation status?

Oggins Oggins
I'm just wondering if the option to mark yourself as being "on vacation" would be useful to any one else. I remember there was a contributor who was on vacation when one of their assignments arrived and was concerened about being late with the review. Also, when I go on vacation, if anyone messages me with a question about a toy I've reviewed or anything else, they will think I just don't reply to my messages. I always reply to my messages and want to help anyone I can so, I think this would be a good idea. That way, the administrators as well as customers and other contributors would know, I was unavailable. What do you think?

I think it's a great idea also. I get emails regularly from people who were away when their toys came, etc. And it would be useful in the website for communication.

I think that would be beneficial! I've left questions on reviews before, and not been sure whether the contributer was away, or just simply not checking back on review comments.

So far I just email the admins to let them know I'll be away (like next week, when I get my wisdom teeth out--it's the same week my new toy should arrive!), but it'd be nice to be able to convey that to reviewers and customers as well.

Another suggestion, for the internal messaging system. When I look in the outbox, is there anyway that we can add a read/unread thing? I know there's a turnaround time on messages, but when I don't get a response for a week, I wonder if it was read or accidentally deleted. Having the Read/Unread would also help if someone is waiting for a response from a reviewer. Just a suggestion.

I, too, also love the idea of "on vacation" as an option, along with a possible last log in date right on our profile page.

Great suggestion. I would love to see a vacation status as well.

it would be a great idea - i actually rejected a review in the middle of June because i knew we would be away for the next couple of months (we live where we work for ten months and then in the summer go back to where we actually live)
