What would YOU change about Eden

Adam02viper Adam02viper
If you had the opportunity in which you could change any one thing about Eden Fantasy’s what would you change. If you can not think of anything you would like to change about Eden, try and think of something you would like to be added to Eden. Please add the reasoning behind why you think these changes should be made.

If I could change one thing about Eden I would move the warehouse to Canada so it was closer to me

haha I'll give you a serious answer soon I just have to give it a little more thought. Every time I think of something I'd like added to Eden or changed I find out it's already in the works or being discussed. Eden is usually one step ahead of me it seems. Which is just fine by me

You didn't tell us what you'd change?

I'd expand on the user profiles. I think Eden is already a very adaptive and successfully designed site. I wouldn't mind seeing it develop more facebook or fetlife-like features in terms of expanding on ones profile.

Some features that come to mind:
A Blogging type feature (similar to facebook notes)
A "what your in to" type feature (similar to the fetish list on fetlife)

I would change/add:

* International shipping back to the way it was before the move!

* Extended review formatt so it's less likely to make reviewers repeat themselves in a number of the sections.

* A better system of searching for items that only have 2 reviews rather than only an option for ALL items or items with zero reviews. Especially now that each item is only allowed 3 reviews - verified or not! It was hard enough finding something before. Gonna be insane now.

* Make new members (from now on) add a paypal or credit details on record when signing up, in case they want to accept and run off with a free toy - leaving Eden out of pocket and possibly ruining it for genuine people in the future.


And just one for shits and giggles - a few days of double points a month ... LMAO

The three first ones would be highly appreciated.

Interesting thing about the credit details so new members can't run off with a free toy. I had always been wondering if there was a way to fix that if it happened.

I would simplify some things. One of the reasons I love and have loved Eden so much is how easy it is to use and find information. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed even though I am on here 24/7.

I would also simplify things. Make pages easier to go to and from. The forum section definitely needs to be simplified. Too much clutter.

Other than that, I would try and keep packaging in one box no matter what.

+1 to your thoughts on the extended review format.

Quoi? to the "only 3 reviews" - where/when did this come from? Ditto on the third point.

If I could change one thing it would be the forum software. I find V-bulletin and similar styles so much easier to navigate, and they generally offer more thread/post options.

I don't agree with making people add the credit card/paypal details. I use a friends credit card when I make my orders because I don't own one, and they would not be happy at all to have it on file somewhere.

I don't feel like people are really running away with a free toy. Before you can even get your first review item you need to post 2 - 3 reviews on your own. I feel like that's an insurance policy all on it's own. They're getting two reviews at the least out of someone regardless. Also, Some people take a little longer than others to write a review so when would be the appropriate time to charge them for the toy they got? And if they posted their review eventually they would need to be refunded that money. I think that there would be a lot of back and forth with charges and refunds which would just be a hassle.

I agree with your other points though I do find myself repeating things in my reviews with the extended format. I try not to, but it does happen.

Double XP weekends would be sweet! Even if it were only for review submissions.

I think I would also change the review listings on a product page back to the way it was just a few weeks ago. Not a fan of the "most helpful favorable review" vs "The most helpful critical review" setup

Actually, if someone goes through the Mentor Program right from the beginning, then their mentor can get them a free toy before they have even written any reviews.
A number of mentors have had students get the toy and then they don't follow up with their end of the deal - they take off.

If one did this, the mentor would be messaging them to see what's happening. If they get absolutely no response, then JR would be making contact after the allowed time frame - asking about the review.
The student would have more than enough time - they wouldn't be classed as a run off after just a week or two.

So it would be up to the mentor to tell the student, when they signed up, what the general time frame is.

That's brings me to another thing I would change:

* Anyone who wants to become advanced would HAVE to go through the Mentor Program instead of the public voting way. This cuts down on reviews that aren't really that informative from new reviewers. It also stops students from doing the dirty on their mentors by going through the public vote way after their mentor has put in all the hard work!

I don't know if I'd mandate the mentor program, but I think if you opt to not go through the mentor program you should have a set minimum score. I've thought about going through the mentor program, but opted not to in the end based on time constraints at the moment. My plan was to do about 5 reviews and try for a score of around 5-6 before applying for an upgrade.

I do definitely think that if you do not go through the mentor program there should be more stringent requirements. I also think that if a person's membership is upgraded and afterwards they continually fail to produce a standard quality of review, their upgrade should be revoked.

I'm not fond of the idea of having to store credit card information on file either. Especially with all the internet hackers, what happened with play station is a good example of that. I hate that Microsoft stores your credit card information and you can't remove it. I never buy anything I want from them though them for that very reason. I think it would deter a lot of people from buying directly from Eden or from even joining.

I'd like to see the forum easier to navigate. Or at least not have to go back and do all that scrolling. It's annoying. I think simplifying things to make them more user friendly would be for the best.

There should definitely be some change so that students can't do the dirty on their mentors. Perhaps if a student has a mentor, there should be a system where they can't apply for a public voting. It's simply not fair to mentors. It's like a slap in the face!

I actually went the public voting way myself cause I wasn't aware of the Mentor Program at that stage. It was too easy to become advanced and my first 2 reviews weren't that good.
If I had of known of the Mentor Program, I would have joined cause I didn't have any writing experience before and I know those 2 reviews would have been a lot better.

I think that's a good idea of having a minimum score/rating before being able to apply for public voting.

It's funny - everyone just assumes a credit card would be on record. I said Paypal OR credit.
I wouldn't put my credit on file, but don't have a problem with Paypal. I have had a Paypal account for many years and never had any issues.
Besides, I wouldn't have a problem with Eden having my Paypal account because I have no intentions of running off with a toy.

AND the suggestion was for new people signing up. The reviewers already with Eden have proven we're trustworthy.

I think it would be nice to have a different forum style as well, as suggested by a few people above. I also agree with some sort of required mentor program - if people are already good writers, their mentors would just be able to give them a few pointers and approve their reviews anyway. That's sort of what happened to me, but it ensured that I still had feedback and didn't come in writing total crap.

Perhaps it's selfish of me, but I would also appreciate some admin taking another look at the ranking system and considering changing a few things about how it works. Only, unless a person is writing enough reviews to keep pace with some of our amazing reviewers here, it's hard to increase rank in order to do anything. I know some people want to increase their rank to be able to review more expensive toys, but I'm simply trying to get to a 6.0 so that I can mentor new reviewers and writers. Being a full-time student and also not having a proper space of my own to store toys, it would be impossible, unfeasible, and unenviromentally friendly to be constantly pumping out reviews. I simply don't have a high enough sex drive or a large enough storage area to faciliate such things. Unfortunately that also keeps me from being as involved in this community as I would like. It means I wasn't high on the list to be an editor and I may never have a high enough rank to mentor newcomers to the community. I'm not sure if this is something that could be looked at in the way rankings work, but it would be nice.

I'll add one more thing to this list: I wish reviewers would copy and paste the content of off-site reviews instead of linking them.

As an often-off-site reviewer, I have to contest this. With the work we put into our off-site reviews and the blogs on which they are hosted, it wouldn't be fair not to direct traffic to our sites. It also penalizes us and EF when material is copied and appears the exact same way in two different web locations.

I don't think it's that hard to click a link to read the review...

Ugh, I hate to say this, but I'd want to add a little more boundaries maybe? Like when it comes to playgiarism. We saw one case where it was just too clear that playgiarism was committed & nothing was done about it. I am a writer and I'm going to school for it so I take those things very seriously. People spend too much hard time working to provide a good review and for someone to be allowed to copy it and totally get away with it just disgusts me! I have learned a lot about detecting palygiarism while going to school & I have seen it on Eden. I was so disappointed when it was just blown off. It worried me that my hard work on my own might be stolen and nothing will be done about it. Also, I think there should be a friendlier touch. I don't know, but I'd like to be able to connect with people a little better. It's not very easy here, but maybe I'm too used to FB. Lol. I like getting to know new people and chatting, instead of only following. I'd like to get to know more about the ef lovies. I also think somethings are tolerated more than they should be like the big bad christian thing. It seems there's some harsh words very often when someone expresses their belief in God.

I do understand that off-site reviewers would like traffic to their site in exchange for their work, but from the reader/customer pov I don't like being forced to leave the EF site, especially if I don't know what to expect at the destination (in terms of design, ads, pictures etc). I also don't like the increased wait time while a new site loads (not everyone has hi-speed internet access). Add the warning page most blogs throw up even though it's a direct link from an adult site (EF), and I come to the conclusion it's much easier to click on another on-site review.

I'm the same. I hate having to be taken to another site. I have high speed internet, but leaving Eden or having to open another window just frustrates me.

But some reviewers prefer to have the reviews on their blog cause it can be set out differenly and they have others stuff they want traffic to read. Personally, I never read the rest of the site, if I do happen to go there. I read the review and leave.
I'll only go into those reviewers blogs who I know are great writers and even then, it's only on items I'm interested in.

The horrible search system is my number one complaint here. It is VERY difficult to find toys that I'm interested in reviewing that are actually available for request. I absolutely HATE that the current product search is limited to toys "with reviews" and toys "without reviews". Just like Shelz31 said...what about the toys that only have 1 or 2 reviews and are still available for request?

Well I love Eden and there isn't really anything big that I would change.

I do know that I have noticed some product pages only have the "most helpful" critical review and the "most helpful" praising review on them.

I don't care for that because then not everyone is getting a chance to have their review read.

I highly doubt that Eden would just let plagiarism slide. Unless you are talking about when other sites were stealing reviews from us, in which case Eden still did what they could.

As far as the christian thing, I love Eden for the fact that they are transparent and anyone and everyone can have an opinion without being judged or ridiculed. Granted, some heated discussions can arise, but in the end it's all a matter of opinion and we still care about each other here.

I can relate to that. While I try to ALWAYS put the effort in for the reviewer's sake, with 2 kids, school, work, etc. it's not always possible for me to do that much navigating from page to page. It does complicate things up a bit and I still try, but I've found most off-site reviews to be lacking in any detail. Note, I said MOST, NOT ALL. I will go ahead and do it unless it's the beginning of the month when our connection is awful and it's just impossible to navigate through pages online.
