Hello Everyone,

While none of these changes have happened yet, the plans for implementation have been approved and should not take that long (if all goes well).

Thanks for the update!

So is the review program kind of on hold right now?

I, too, am eager to learn when the changes will be put into effect! The new program sounds fantastic to me. I'm particularly interested in the parameters for this: "These levels will be earned by achieving a minimum rank, submitting a minimum # of reviews, and being a contributor for a minimum period of time." I want to know what my new level will be!

I know the current changes are probably pretty much set in stone by now, but I have an idea for the next round of site updates. Gary, you said, "There are a number of Review Program proposals in the works, including some for new or revised templates..." It occurred to me that if we had a slightly more detailed template, points earned for reviews could be awarded on a per-section basis; say, a template with 10 sections could be worth 10 points awarded per section. Something along those lines?Or the points for each section could vary, depending on how important they are considered? And maybe an additional 5 points per photo, up to a maximum of 10 or 20?

As of right now, the template changes are all proposals that have not been deemed a high enough priority for programming at this time. We have the projects that I told you guys about already, plus all of the main EF site stuff, as well as the projects from other teams. So, I love to hear all of your suggestions, but this particular proposal for the templates is not happening anytime soon. Just being honest with you guys. Sorry.

Nothing official. I was told the points update *might* happen in one of the next few updates. And to the best of my knowledge the review program changes will be happening after the point changes.

It is looking like students will get their first assignment, and the 2nd would be a buyout. That is the only major difference I see right now.

No, you can still request free assignments.

The rank factor is really not that critical for the plan in place. Also, the plan as it is now is really targeting the new people coming in to the system. Don't quote me here... but it is my intention that the current reviewers are not starting at the bottom, but will be at the normal or top tier.

When I know, you will know. It will be a while. This is a LONG PROCESS, and you were all involved from the very beginning.

Assignments are only declined based on availability.

I know we're going under change or in the process of change. As you stated in an earlier post "You can still request free assignments", is there anything in particular we need to request or anything. It seems to be that all of my free assignment request are being denied.
