Big News!!! All new Community Homepage is now live!

Victoria Victoria
It’s alive!!! The all new Community Homepage – your one stop page for all things community related!

We have pulled together existing and new features to make this page – here is an overview of each section:

News and announcements
These are announcements regarding the community, changes and anything that you should know about. I choose threads to be featured in this area and they show up here and in the forums.


Review Spotlight
It’s like a review roundup for the toy categories! This is a better way to roundup too, because it relates directly to the product and the review. I choose a review for the category and write a little witticism to introduce it in the Spotlight – these shows up here and on the category pages throughout the website.


Top 10 reviewers
No more ‘Top 5’ – now we feature the ‘Top 10’! The ‘All reviewers’ and ‘Just joined’ features are available, just as before.


Upgrade Requests
A major change! Reviewers still have to submit at least two (2) reviews of products they’ve already tried, but when they submit a request for upgrade, they have to make a personal statement to introduce themselves and explain why they want to be an Advanced Level reviewer. Then they instantly go up on the Community Homepage for votes. Upgrade requests are then decided by the community over a 2 week period. Only Advanced Level contributors are able to vote. Requesters still need to receive at least 5 votes to be approved for Advanced Level. Votes are based on writing quality and overall activity. As soon as they receive 5 votes, they are automatically upgraded and move into the ‘congratulations’ section of the Upgrade Requests area.

If a requester does not receive sufficient votes in the 2 week period, the upgrade request is removed and the reviewer will be able to submit a new request after they have submitted at least 2 more reviews. This gives those who do not get enough votes the opportunity to improve their reviews and become more active in the community.


Reviews
All the most recent reviews...including the Follow Up reviews!!! A great improvement! And even better, Follow Ups are easy to spot – because they have the little symbols for ‘I like it more’, ‘I like it the same’, ‘I don’t like it anymore’ and so on. Very cool. Now you can clearly show what became of your love affair with some of your past toys.


Support
Don’t wanna go back to your account to refresh your memory on the guidelines or ranking? Newbie with a question? Well, here’s a Support section, right on the community page for easy reference!


Forum
All the latest forum threads, at a glance – or you can click ‘See all discussions’ to get a gander at them all on the forums page!


This was a big team effort – we all worked hard on this project, so if you’ve been wondering what those updates I was hinting at were, this was one of the biggies!

A big thank you to the Eden team for making this new page so awesome!

So, dear community, we bequeath to you, a new and beautiful home. Enjoy!

Congrats Victoria and the entire EF staff. This is a great improvement, both in the upgrade requests section and the ease of access of relative information. Thanks so much.

This is really terrific work. I am very impressed.
I was wondering about the upgrade requests though. If they stay on there for two weeks and only have five to a page it may get pretty big fairly quickly. I was trying to figure out a way to determine if I had already looked at a candidate and decided not to vote for them so that I would not continue to look at their reviews every time I was going through them again. Are the newest requests put at the top and then the others slid down?
Everything looks great, though!

When I put in my request I was put at the top of the page. So, yes, I think that the new ones are at the top. And I didn't notice it right away but there is more than one page for upgrade requests.

Hmmm...
I did a follow up review today to test out that feature and I'm not seeing it. Glitch, maybe? Or I'm looking in the wrong place?

I did too and was like "Whaaa?" - don't worry the techs have been told. It'll hopefully be fixed tomorrow.

I have one suggestion for this. I keep accidentally clicking "Vote" because there is no.. 'confirmation' for voting. Could some sort of confirmation be added?

Ha! I almost started a thread about that, but then I figured people would be like "Can you not control your mouse?"

I've done that a few times, too, and would also appreciate a "confirm" button or something.

I like to click to see who voted and accidentally click "Vote" instead. I've done it like 3 times now.
