Follow-up reviews on items already owned?

Kat Shanahan Kat Shanahan
Since I joined EF, I've written seven reviews (I think.) Most of those were for items I already owned; I have a lot of toys and figured that writing reviews on those would be good practice.

I know that after you write a review on an assigned product, you're expected to write a follow-up review after two months. But I was wondering about the reviews I completed on stuff I already have -- can I write follow-up reviews for those, or is that not allowed? Just wondering.

You can write a follow-up review on items you already own, but it is recommended that you wait at least a month before completing your follow-up. Even though you've already had the toy a while, this just gives you the opportunity to ensure that nothing happens for a month or two after you've written it (like catastrophic failure).

You can write in your original review, though, in the experience section, that you've had it a while and how well it performed over time, too.

I would much rather see in the original review how long somebody's had something and how it's been working for them so far than to see a follow-up review a month or two later stating that they've owned it for a long time and nothing's changed. I personally try to save follow-up reviews for when something does change, rather than if something's changed in a certain period of time.

The other posters already replied to the main question, but I just wanted to point out:

"...you're expected to write a follow-up review after two months."

Follow up reviews are suggested, not expected. They can be really helpful, but they're not required.

Ah, thanks for pointing that out! I don't know why, but I was under the impression that follow-up reviews were expected. I think the reason I thought that way is because I just recently received an email telling me it had been two months since my initial review on an item, and reminding me of my follow-up review. I guess I got the idea that it was a requirement.

Thanks for the clarification!
