Everyone is allowed to vote for 3. And vote for anothers if own review is up for the Rumble. And don't forget once you vote you can't undo it. Unless you pm Lena and ask for help.

Even though 3 votes are allowed, most people don't vote that way. As I am posting this, I see that there are 9 votes from 7 voters. So, it is most people only voted once.

While I know that Eden doesn't offer this, they might want to consider the option to rank our top three choices (ie. 1st choice = 3 points, 2nd choice = 2 points, 3rd choice = 1 point) in polls.

I think some people struggle with the fact that, logically, if you vote for your top three choices but you like one review most, you are advancing the votes of your favorite review and also the its top competition. However, if you only choose to vote for one, it gives your favorite review a better chance of winning.

Lena might want to add that to the site wishlist of features, as agree think that would be a more effective mechanism. But it's why I only voted for my favorite

Yeah, I love your idea MrClark! I have already created a thread where everyone can leave their suggestions on making Eden even more fascinating and user-friendly.

DancerKittyKat, actually, if you only like one review from the list, you can vote for that one ignoring all others. Now, having a Regular account you get 1 point for every vote (up to 5 votes per day).

Just thinking out loud. What if a second prize of maybe $5.00 for 2nd place.
Or set a 3 in a row winner limit and that reviewer has to sit out 1 rumble.
We do this in sports. So others get an opportunity.

Thank you for the nomination! I'm pleased with just being nominated. I just wanted to take a second and tell everyone thank you for helping me get started reviewing. This has been a fun experience for my wife and me and we are glad that we came to Eden. All of you have been very nice, supportive, and open about many things which we really appreciate.

Since March 2016, when I started reviewing on the site, there has not been one reviewer who has won three Review Rumbles in a row.

I have noticed that reviewers who write the most reviews and put in the most time get nominated most. For instance, OH&W, Lovebears has been nominated 8 times since I have joined the site, and they write good reviews most frequently. In comparison, I have been nominated 6 times since I have joined, but I don't write reviews as often. This is how it should be in my opinion; people should be rewarded for putting in the time to create great reviewers by being nominated for the Review Rumbles. The winners of the Rumbles are decided by the contributors on the site, so in my view it is fair.

Other trends I have found:
1) Lingerie and accessory reviews don't usually win against toy reviews.
2) Top voted reviews almost always have good pictures.

I would also like us all to take a moment to appreciate the work that Lena Eden does. She must read through so many reviews each month to create the Review Rumbles! I have noticed that there is always a good mix of new and old faces. She works hard and does a great job! Let's not forget that!!!

Just as an FYI, I haven't been nominated once But having all the reviews for the past month vs a subset of once that really stood out is not a bad practice. I am curious if they are chosen based on traffic, views, ratings, reviewer rank, etc... or if it's just Lena's favorites?

That's too bad to hear this! I enjoy reading your reviews! Though I thought I saw your "A good anal lube" review in the April 2016 Rumble.

When I joined, I recall the admin encouraging fellow community members to nominate their favorite reviewers for Rumbles because it's hard for any one person to read every single review posted on the site.

omg, neck to neck again with DKK. Only 4 hrs to vote unless extended.
And looks like a dark horse in a real sexy outfit is right on our tails. Actually yours since that's what your review is on.

Good luck DKK and alyssadrew91
Personally I would like the sexy officer to win.
We already both won a few last year.

That's so strange. I set up email notifications for this thread, and I got a notification on February 24, 2017 at 12:05 AM saying the poll closed. In fact, I remember the original close date was midnight. So, OH&W, Lovebears, it looks like the poll was extended!

Yes, some confusion originally a date was set,then suddenly closed before deadline. If possible go back and see what original date was. I think they got it right.

Congratulations my fluffy kitty kat

Hey, everyone!

It seems that we had a technical error on the website, that's why the poll was open more time than it should.

Anyway, thanks for your suggestions, today the #Rumble will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.

So, DancerKittyKat takes gold ($15 gift card), OH&W, Lovebears - silver($10 gift card) and Mallorys along with alyssadrew91 get bronze ($5 gift card)!!

Congratulations!!!
