What do you think about having multiple follow-up reviews on a product?

Ms. N Ms. N
Do you think it would be good to have multiple follow-up reviews on a product? Perhaps the initial one after a couple of months, then another a year later to check in on how the product is holding up? My idea is that it would be one that the option to complete the follow-up is not available until a year has passed. What do you think?

I was just thinking about that as I was sitting down to write some follow up reviews today.

I wouldn't mind seeing a follow up to some toys six months to a year after a review is written. After two months, I still reach for the same toys, but I have found that sometimes, after I have received a new toy, that original toys that I loved so dearly, has been replaced with something I found that is similar, but better. And that might just help someone with making a purchase.

It bothers me when I see the followup written too soon after the initial one. Multiple followup options would be cool, but I think it would also be good if the followup option didn't show up until at least 30 days had passed.

Of course sometimes, the initial review is written long after the product's purchase, in which case the followup being written a day later isn't so bad.

Agreed, I do my follow ups when I realize I bought something a WHILE ago and Eden recommends two months later.

I'd like a 1-10 rating which affects the review time. If people rate the review honestly, it would kick in new ratings.

About halfway through your comment, I was thinking maybe it would be good to restrict the submission of follow-ups, so they could only be posted a month later, but.. then there's the second thing you mentioned. So, I guess that idea wouldn't work. I agree, though. Sometimes follow-ups are posted too soon.

Here's the thing, though---follow-ups are not required. You don't ever have to do them if you don't want to. It's an option in case something drastic happens to the product. It's recommended to wait two months, but it's not something that any is required to do.

I do think one is enough but I'm not opposed to more although that means more writing

Me too - not only should we be able to do another follow-up, we should be able to re-rate the stars.

I think it would be nice to have more than one follow-up review. Sometimes it's really necessary.

I would really like the option of one more followup. But mandatory wait period of two to six months.

I would like to be able to. I would also like to be able to go back and edit old reviews. I HATE the first handful of reviews I had, they are so pathetic. I also noticed in one of my reviews I misspelled a word listed under the cons section and now I can't fix it and look like a total moron .

I like follow up reviews... Maybe like you said, wait a year or maybe just 6 months. I find I have so many toys and I forget about some so then I use them and dont like them and wanna share again...

I think it would be helpful but to not allow points for any further follow ups just to prevent point farming. For 90% of reviews it isn't needed, but for some it could be really helpful.

I agree, but in the follow up review, I'd like it to be actually stated how long they've had the product for.

I think that it would be nice to do an initial review, one after one month, one after three and then again after 6 months maybe? Depends on the item though.

I think this is a great idea. I've had situations where I want to write a follow-up in a couple of weeks (usually because since my original review I've had a chance to give the toy a test drive with a partner), but I'd like to also be able to comment on any issues that take longer to show up.

I think one follow up is enough.The follow up should be after awhile to if I saw multiple follow ups that would just annoy me.
