What exactly are you saying with this? Are you telling people we shouldn't be objective and say what we really think?

We're not here to sell products we write reviews on, we are just there to tell them about the product, good and bad. Its the company's goal to promote products, not ours.

Thanks for this, it's very helpful, I obviously had the bad luck of signing up in the middle of some major changes.

I still have one question though: how do we "activate discussion service"? I assumed it meant posting on these forums since I couldn't see it anywhere else, but it hasn't popped up in my earning history, and I've completed all the other mandatory tasks and more, and it's more than 15 days since the first action but i'm still a trial member. Am I missing something or do I need to submit an upgrade request or support ticket or something?

Several other members have already said it, but I'm really happy to see Eden taking its members concerns to heart like this

I joined 1 month ago, have even written reviews as well as doing the mandatory tasks but I'm still a Trial Member.

I'm actually quite curious about the 'activating discussions' part to upgrade to a regular member as well. Is there any clarification on this?

Question:

Where do you find the "activate discussion service" task? I have a student who's trying to figure this out just as I am and this is the only task she can't find in her account.

I'm asking the same question as Pretties, Suzie, Kit, and kendra. I can't seem to find an option anywhere to "activate discussion service", which I thought was the forums? (It's a relief to see that I'm not the only one!)

I've been here for over a month, actively participating and recently had a review published that I spent a couple weeks working on...but I didn't receive any points for it. Help identifying this task so that I could move up would be greatly appreciated!

I really appreciate that Eden is willing to listen to its community and respond when appropriate. We are not just numbers or (sexy) avatars, we mean something to you. Merci.

Oh wow! So it isn't only my student. I guess this is some glitch or unresolved thingy with the new changes. I don't know. For my student, it's her only task left to complete -- the activation of discussion service -- so I take it without completing that task, you are held back from being upgraded or whatever? For a minute, I started thinking maybe it was just a glitch, but since there was no option to activate it, perhaps it wasn't a requirement & that if you'd completed the rest, you'd still be able to go forward. As a mentor, I'm trying to learn this new stuff too & I feel kind of lost! I know my new students are lost & hoping I will be of help, but this is tough.

Wonder why you didn't receive any points? Is that one of the changes? I wasn't aware of this one. Maybe you have to complete so many reviews before you start getting points. I wish there was a more detailed guide for this stuff. If I figure out this whole discussion service mess, I will post here so you, Suzie, Kit and Pretties can know & if any of you figure it out, I hope ya'll let us know too.

Another thing. Are there changes to the assignments for students? I have 2 students who have requested an assignment about 1-2 weeks ago & I emailed Justin about it, as usual & never get any replies. Is there a change there that I have missed? I have emailed more than twice & still nothing, so both of those students are asking about it & I have no answers to give. Yikes.

As far as assignments go, Stormy is the one to contact. Justin is no longer with EdenFantasys.

Well, according to the checklist at the beginning of this thread, yes, it's the only task I have left to complete before being upgraded from the trial period. I've been posting all over the forum about it since I realized that the "wait and see' approach wasn't going to work. Finally asked Stormy about it yesterday, so hopefully will hear back soon.

A couple weeks ago, when I began working on my review, my dashboard said I would earn points for it. Now, it doesn't say anything about earning points for a review, or anything about more steps that need to be taken before I can earn points for it.

I've actually only earned one point this entire month despite reading and contributing around the site several times a week, and it seems to be just because it hasn't upgraded from the trial period. Honestly, from a newcomer's perspective it's hard to not feel like I was kinda tricked by how this points system was presented, but I fully realize that it could just be a bug or some major misunderstanding on my part. I just hope it all gets clarified soon!

I'm so happy I'm no the only one struggling with the "activate discussion service" task. I hope it gets resolved soon.

Well despite the lack of a response on this thread from any admin types, my status has now been upgraded to "regular". Since I did nothing new between posting here and that change, I can only assume "activate discussion service" means "start posting in the forums". So if you think you should be a regular user but are still a trial member I suggest sending a support ticket since it must be a technical issue. It does need clarifying though, as confusion is discouraging for new users.

How does one request items to review? I have "grab it" and placed in assignment cart but there is no way to order it. What do I need to do to be able to review items?

I hope this is true. I've been wondering what that meant, so hopefully this post will upgrade my account.

I've done all the mandatory actions, I even have a review published but I'm still on the Trial Period.
I guess the problem hasn't been resolved.

There is a fifteen day wait after the last action was completed. So if you open an account today, puverify your email but don't publish a profule until Wed. Then it's fifteen days after Wed. When the account will switch over.

I completed all my actions on the 23rd of Jul. That's more than 2 weeks ago.
I'm assuming the "Activate discussion service" is posting on the forum. If not, I guess I still have to do that one.

Activating the discussion service is no longer a requirement. I've switched you over. Let me know if you need anything else!

Ok, maybe I am missing something or just losing it but I can not do any reviews because when I click to write /add one, it sends me to a page and tells me to sign up to become a reviewer, which I have been for nearly 2 years now and won't let me do anything. I sent a support ticket 5 days and have gotten no response at all so I am at a loss and do not know what to do! I have some items I bought and want to add my reviews to but the site just will not let me! Can someone please help? LOL!

All looks fine on your account. I tried to start a draft and had no issues. Clear your cookies/cache and let me know if it happens again.

My understanding of it was that if your account was active for 15 days and you at any point completed the tasks that are manditory you would instantly upgrade. So like I activated my account on Oct. 7th, I completed my tasks (either today or last week depending on if post to articles count for the discussion part of if posting here does) so I should be upgraded today. At least that's how it reads to me when I look at the official Q&A for it.

No, it's 15 days after the last action is completed.
