Been gone awhile...

~LaUr3n~ ~LaUr3n~
I submitted two reviews almost 2 months ago and only one has been published. I also submitted requests for assignments at that time and none have been looked at. I'm shocked at the time frame. When I was on here reviewing all the time, it never took more than a weekend to publish a review, approve or decline assignments or respond to a ticket. I also submitted a ticket a little over a month ago and no one has gotten back to me.

I was looking forward to coming back to Eden, but so far I'm a bit frustrated. Is there a reason for the delay that I don't know about?

Also...so what's new??!?!

Welcome back!

Unfortunately, activity on EF has pretty much been dead for a year now. Many of the old faces have completely left the site.

I was never super active on here as far as reviewing/commenting, but I've been lurking the boards for a long time here and I've purchased all of my toys from here! It's been a little over a year since I bought my last toy and came back recently to buy more/get back into the boards, but it seems to be dead/it seems edenfantasys collection/variety has diminished greatly. In any case, welcome back!!

It's unlikely you'll get any kind of response from anyone at Eden itself. The mentor program now functions entirely on its own with no responses to any questions or admin support. Editing is done by the few who still do it, and then randomly a huge bunch seem to go live with no editing at all and no editor listed. I've seen no assignments in a long time....so yeah....I don't think anyone will answer a support ticket that isn't order related. It's a bummer.

It's a strange and different world around here.

BUT -- I'm glad to see you back!

I came back a few days ago too...and can't even change my email address without having to delete my profile completely and make a new name...they said they'd change my points over, but I'd lose my reviews and all...it sucks. I liked being here before but life got in the way and now I'm like, what happened??? lol welcome back to you though! maybe things will get going again

The Eden that you knew is pretty much dead and gone. There is some activity, but it's mainly on the forums.

Bummer...Ive been off for about a year now as well and I cant get into my old account(shysexxaddict) ive tried emailing a few times and no response. What exactly happened ?Why so dead now?

Eden has been scaled back. There are less editors so it takes longer for reviews to be published if there is a back log. Assignments take varying lengths of time to be approved or denied. I've had a response in just a few days at times and a month or more at others. So, it's a slower pace.

Welcome back, LaUr3n!! A lot has happened, EF was scaled way back and has been more retail focused. I have been on and off the site the last 8 months--my husband passed away and I had some bad issues to deal with. Hope to see you around, the forums seem to be the main focus for the community aspect, but it looks like there may be some small changes soon...just guessing.

Wow, thanks for the responses guys. Yea, I don't see much use for the site as a community anymore unfortunately. I loved mentoring and editing and I'm not in either program anymore and my requests have not been answered. I would be happy to edit to get reviews out for no points at all. I love reading your guys reviews! Anyways... this sucks.

I'm glad to see this and very sad to hear that I'm not the only person with this problem.
None of my tickets have been accepted.
My reviews get posted, but not edited.
Any toys I submitted to review I get no response.
I have no idea if my code as an affiliate I am getting commission on.

Anything from anyone?

With so many talented people on here for so long, I would think that they just moved on to other platforms to keep writing and reviewing. Does anyone know where people went?

I would sure like to get some video reviews going again.

Been a while since I've seen a post from you ^_^ I have to agree, I had a request for a item from July to December and nothing was done to it so I canceled it. In that time frame I was pregnant and had my daughter 14 weeks early.

I would love to do requests like that again, but the time frame...it's too long. Might not be a good idea now that I have a baby.

I've been with Eden since close to the beginning. I haven't moved anywhere but stayed on.

YOU AND ME BOTH! I remember you and I am sure you've been here longer than I have. I'm having the same issues. Seems we're getting nowhere with this. Sad...

Good to see you back! It's ironic that some people who were responsible for many others leaving, still seem to be around! Oh well.

We drop in now and again...more to shop then anything, but it's still nice to see some of the "oldies and goodies" coming back, or at least checking in, when we click on the Forum to take a quick look see.

We hope life is treating you well!!!

So sad! This used to be a daily site I visited & now, it seems like there's nothing left that used to draw me here!

Does anyone know where everyone went? Has anyone found other sites out there with similar programs? Please let me know!

Thanks!

I haven't checked in for a very, very long time. It appears as if things have not picked up. Are people still reviewing things? I had a great time as a reviewer and as an editor. My guess is that the old EF is long gone and won't be back.

Pls don't hate me for noting this.

Why do people stop in and say negative things and criticize. Why not try and help improve it ?

Maybe if you start others will return also. Rome wasn't built in a day. Nor rebuilt.

Sorry, if I seem a little blunt !

Many left when the hands outs and freebies stopped. Many complained, "Why no more freebies ?"

No wonder Trump is getting so much attention.

I'm still doing reviews. They come in waves.

It appears as if you weren't around when things were really going strong here. Many, many things changed and even those of us who put a lot of effort into making it a better place were left high and dry. For example, I have a lot of points (almost 68,000) but it would take forever (not to mention $$$$) to use them all now. Also, these points weren't obtained as "freebies" - many of us spent hours writing reviews and also served as editors (which took a tremendous amount of time).

@B8trDude,

It's true I was not around when EF was in it's height/ heyday as far as forum and reviews participation. I did stop in though and read threads and reviews.

I am familiar with the 100% pts for gc change. I emphasis with members losing that fantastic discount.
It was great to see so much discussion, many reviews, comments following publishing etc. I'm sure if EF changed the policies it was due to financial reasons. EF is a business not just a forum and place to review everyday people's reviews.

All I was saying is, what good does it do to make negative comments and criticize. Not so much to you in particular, but I have seen many pop in just to make such comments. How does that help ? Do they just want to vent ?

Many say, they miss the glory days. My comment is if they participate, it can grow. However it seems they will not, unless got something in return.

There are other forums and blogs where members participate. _ _ has the largest # of members in the world. Tons of participation and advise given. No of the members get compensation. Just a community of like- minded people.

EF currently in trying to rebuild it's community and even give out assignments under a different program. If you or anyone interested just contact Obsurca.

Just my 2 bits. Hope to see others and you around
