So very excited! You guys are amazing! Now...if I had waited 24 hours to submit my last review. Oh well, looks like I should get busy on my ever-growing to-do list!

GONE! GONE!
Holy crap! Well, I'm certainly gonna work hard on my reviews so I can feel like I earned that many points for them.

Wow, these are some fantastic changes, and i really have to thank EF for being so generous with the points given for reviews. I know for me, and many other edenites, a well written review takes upward to a week to prefect to make sure all information needed is there as well as a well developed personal experiences. I try and work out as much editing as needed before submission so the editor in rotation can efficiently do their job. While i didnt mind the 50 for review submission, the current change to the points wants me to be sure to be as efficient as possible and really prefect my reviews. Like surreptitious mentioned, it makes users feel as if their opinion are valued and were really taken into consideration. Also i'm loving the 7% point value added to orders now! This is really big motivator to get started on my ever growing list of things to review currently in my assignment cart.
Again, thanks so much eden staff, and thanks so much Gary for being so on top of things!

Also did points for the day get reset because of the changes? I noticed i'm getting my 5 points for forum post even though i could have sworn that i already hit my 10x daily limit.

1000 points for a review? Wow! I was not expecting that! Thanks, Gary and EF! I'm still a couple of weeks away from a new review here, but that is some nice incentive!

Very true on the plagiarism part...but at least they will only be trying this with two a day, rather than 7!

I already came across that today. Darn thing cheated me out of one of my proofreads. I don't understand why people are so disgustingly dishonest.

Awesome, thanks for letting us know about the updated points. I actually have a few things that I was planning to review soon anyway so this is like an awesome bonus.

YAY!! I love the changes to the point system! I was wondering about the buy out percentages. Is that going to change? I remember reading about how it may be increased, but I just wasn't sure.
Either way, I'm a huge fan of this site.

Wow that is great! I did notice that searches, likes, and a few other small things did not generate points.. Is this happening to anyone else?

Searching and likes have not been an option since the original changes to the eden points program we're made a couple months back.

I was worried about these changes but damn I am liking this now. Wish I could have waited til now to place my $110 order for the extra 2% point increase

The review increase is awesome. What a great incentive!

I would like to add my appreciative sentiments for the fabulous new point value on reviews!! I thought it must be a typo when someone told me, and they must have added an extra zero...but lo and behold, it's true! Like many others here, I put a lot of time and effort into my reviews--taking photos, sending them to my computer, uploading then, editing them, posting them in the right spots in the review...and writing, editing, finding the right words, rewriting, editing for length when I go over the character limits (must...remove...110 more words!)...etc. I was starting to question why I was doing all that for 50 points, when 10 posts in the forum would earn me the same amount, but I'm just such a damn perfectionist and enjoy writing reviews so much...and now I get 1000 points for each one? That's amazing, and will definitely enable me to try some of the more expensive new toys and lingerie available! Thank you, EF team!!

I'm happy about the points increase. But I too am worried about the same thing or people submitting less than acceptable reviews. I just hope it doesn't get ruined for those of us that try to put out helpful/informative reviews.

Thank you so much for informing us on the new changes. WOW on the points for reviews, that's great and highly appreciated. I feel this is the perfect amount for a review for those of us who spend so much time into their reviews to ensure we are including everything possible to be informative.

Woah some big changes and I'm really glad to see them! I feel really lucky this happened before I have to go do my summer lab/working ^^ Thanks for all the changes, I agree that 1000 for reviews seems a little high for all that get put out there but I'm definitely not complaining =)

These changes are awesome. I have to say, it's really nice to see the Eden team responding to customer input in a way that allows loyal members to get plenty of points while simultaneously cutting down on the points that new forum spammers can get. You guys rock!
