#Announcement - Changes to the Review Program pt.01 (Ideas for the future direction)

PropertyOfPotter PropertyOfPotter
I think a fair solution would be to assign one DR assignment, and one push assignment for each new item. That way, no one is requesting (it's a fun surprise if you receive one!), but there are two reviews on every product. This would make it so that there are two opinions available before anyone does a buyout on it. I think that would be a great solution. Two reviews, possibly differing opinions, and you don't have to worry about the hassles associated with trying to request anything.

It is likely that we won't be doing free video review assignments anymore, other than occasional push assignments.

Since nothing is set in stone at the moment, however, I can't really say what the final result will be for videos. You guys will find out as we do, though!

I'd just like to jump in and say this is a fantastic idea! I usually wait until there are a few reviews before I buy a product I'm iffy about and sometimes the DR isn't enough.

Oh no! But... But... I shouldn't have waited so long to request my last one! I understand that they may not pay off sometimes, though, and it was great while it lasted.

I agree that a DR and a push may work better than 2 DR assignments like I suggested. That way you could have a very clinical look at the toy and a more subjective look at the toy.

Also a great idea! And it would be a fun surprise and there would be no constant reviewer requests to reject. Admins could simply assign the new items to two people (one DR, one non) and let those reviews help people decide to try the product or not.

I'm in the exact same boat as you. I found this place during the middle of February, and now, people have to pull me off the computer to get me away from Eden. I've only written 2 reviews, but I'm working on a whole bunch more for products I have bought. The time-in-community thing makes sense to me, and I would enjoy the challenge of working my way up, but I'm weird and I know that's not something everyone will be happy with.

As for the banishment of free assignments, I'm not an advanced review (YET!) so yeah, umm. Kay! But really, from what I've ready of the troubles of trying to find available products, I'd say good riddance! Plus the deeper discount buyout idea would make it where the people who want to try out butt plugs get butt plugs, and those of us who enjoy, say, blindfolds get to review blindfolds. I feel like this will actually provide more quality reviews to be honest. Or maybe that's just me. But anyway, good idea is good

i think it's a good idea. i put a lot of work into my reviews and more points seems fair. more points plus bigger discount will make it easier for me to get items to review.

This sounds like a step in the right direction too, tbh. I imagine the Video Review Program is growing by leaps and bounds as well, and tbh I see a lot of videos that don't really meet the criteria that is asked for. Shrinking the program would fix that.

Guess I better hurry up and get my remaining video assignments finished up!

I totally love this idea so much!

I do have one concern though. Would the buyout assignments be limited to 1 a month like our free assignment now? I really love being able to get more than one buyout a month now and would love it to stay that way. Personally I know I'd be spending a lot less money here if I could only do one a month.

Also, would we still be able to do them on any product? Like right now I have a buyout for the MiMi which has 73 reviews. Would we only be able to do them on products with a small amount of reviews? I feel that would also greatly limit the products available to review.

Aww that would bite. It took me a long time do one but when I finally did I enjoy them. I have not done them on every product I have either only some. Maybe limit how many we can do again and lower the points a little bit. I really don't see anything wrong with this area. I think the videos are helpful.

I like your idea on this. I won't get anything unless I have seen a couple reviews on items as well. DR's just don't cute it sometimes.

I think she's saying that they're no longer going to be doing assigned video reviews any longer. You can still do regular video reviews though. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!

I have never got a assigned video review before. I hope the regular ones stay. Yes it would be good to know what you mean.

There was an assigned video program where you received a free product in exchange for a text and video review. On top of the free item, you also received 2500 points. I believe Carrie Ann was saying that they're doing away with the assigned video program, and are just sticking with the regular video reviews done on items you receive on your own or as buyout assignments, etc.

That's what it sounded like to me, too. While I did enjoy the extra free product a month, doing away with it at the same time as the monthly free product makes sense since they were pretty similar as far as price and the program goes.

Wow! I think I will no longer take part in the program then, Like I stated above, being the odd size I am, I have a very hard time buying lingerie, and unless I get a good discount on lingerie, I wont buy it. I am very disappointed right now!

And I understand how bad of a bad sport I sound, but I have bought lingerie in the past and had to throw it out because it was either such bad quality that I couldnt even pass it off on anyone or the size was so untrue, I am so disappointed right now! First EF does away with the blogger program(Which I LOVED being a part of) and now they are taking away the Free assignments, I am so glad I scored the last piece of lingerie! I really had a blast taking part in it, I will say I might still participate, but it wont be monthly like I have been, I simply dont have the extra funds to do so

I really do miss the old point system. But, it's really nice to have an incentive to buy and review with a "drastic increase" in review points as well as buyout percentages. I understand the predicament and won't hold anything against Eden Fantasys. Thank you for the update!

To be fair, Eden does have a very generous return policy. If you get a piece of lingerie that doesn't suit you for whatever reason, you can return it for a refund or exchange within 60 days of shipment!

I think it sounds like a great idea! I don't do the free reviews because it's so hard to find a product, but I do like the buyouts. Love the idea.

If you do the buyouts, don't you have to review them?

The discount idea is a good one. Getting a free assignment was too hard anyway.

would we still be able to review any product we already own if we really want to share our opinion on it? (or do a mini review just talking about personal comments for less points?)

Most of our reviews are of things we've already bought at full price but like enough to want to share info about them. I can't see why that would be any different after the Review Program changes
