Ive been wondering about this...I saw someone get voted in a few weeks ago who had not even done there mandatory first 2 reviews! It only showed they had done one single review and I checked their page for activity and there was none, AND on top of that, the one review they had done was...to be kind...not all that good (and yes, that was kind). Im wondering, considering it is mandatory to do the first 2 reviews AT LEAST before requesting the upgrade, how was this person able to be upgraded with only ONE??? Shouldnt there be some sort of block that prevents people from requesting the upgrade unless they had done the first 2???
I believe the person submitted for advanced then had a review removed for some reason. No idea why.
I agree that room for improvement is good, but I'd love to see a person *submit* those reviews that have improvement before we vote them in. I mean, within the last couple weeks, I've seen people that signed up for EF, wrote two reviews, submitted for Advanced then hadn't come back yet. And they got voted in. With reviews that were only "somewhat useful" or "worth reading but not useful".
I totally don't mean to sound like a killjoy, but I almost feel like it was more of an honor to be in the program then it is now. Maybe I'm missing something on the backend, but it appears like only one out of every five doesn't get accepted.
When I vote, I look to see if they have reviews that have been voted at least useful. Or if I think it's useful. If I'm on the fence then, I look to see if they're active - if not, no. If they have been, or at least active enough to have done something besides post two reviews that they'd never seen again, I usually will say yes.
I feel like the one thing that EF has is its community that makes us stand out as one of those places that most toy reviewers like to call "home". Other toy sites do reviews, but only this one allows us to vote people in, use the forum, and get to know each other. I'd love to see people keep that great community standard with everything when they vote.
Maybe I'm just whining, though. It's quite possible. After all, I did just get "My First Period" kit. Yeah. Freebie addiction. x.x
