Editing older reviews

Editing older reviews

Dragon Dragon
For the reviewers that have been around for a long time, you've seen the program go through growing pains as I have. As I sit here tonight, tired and worn out from my week- I found an old email that reminded me of how at one point in time I threatened to quit Eden because they had "hacked" my review so badly in adding links that it had grammatical errors. They fixed the basic review.

But several of my reviews have links that I would not have added as product placement, titles that weren't my choice and summaries that were not my choice. I know that I CAN (assuming that I have the time...) go back and fix/edit what was changed.

My question is how many of you feel that you have some portion of your reviews in the same state, and are you planning on revisiting them. Not to change the tone of the initial review, but to change what Eden itself imposed on your review.

UGH! I just started looking at some of my oldest reviews. They suck. At that time, Eden was adding so damn many links either to information guides or products that they totally changed the feel of the review.

I'm on a mission now.

When I have the time, I'm planning on going back and editing some of my reviews. It's just a matter of time as I'm in school and work right now.

The summaries WEREN'T our choice back in the day. It was how the system worked. I thought it was fine for the time that they just chose a passage from the review and used it as the summary. Summaries are different now, so I changed mine to more representative paragraphs.

As for links... I guess I see what you mean, but I never felt they "hacked" or butchered my reviews in any way. Most of the links are links to products I mentioned. There's a link to a G-spot guide where I mentioned my G-spot. There's a link to discreet vibrators where I wrote "petite vibrators." The only one I currently see that I don't agree with is that they linked to the Rabbit Pearl where I wrote that I had been looking for the "ideal rabbit vibrator."

I have new info I want to add to my FL review. But when I try to post my additions I cannot post BC the spelling has to be perfect and it marks Fleshlight as an error. Now I can't make a decent review with out adding the name of the product. That's just stupid, I say make the errors be able to be check marked for correct spelling after a 30 second - 1 min timer you can re-post that way your sure they went over it (this is honor system). It's not perfect but I think it would be better off if we could actually update and add to our old reviews.

Also the ability to edit our follow-ups.

You can turn spellcheck off, there's a little box that says "use spellcheck" you have to uncheck.

Or, you can right-click the underlined word and select "Add to Dictionary" and it'll never come up as a misspelling again.

And Epiphora's post leads to a summary question.
When they started putting in the summary box, I started putting in a summary of the review. When I started doing the Description Reviews I put a summary of the product in the summary box for the description reviews, but kept putting a summary of the review for the regular reviews. I still think that this makes the most sense, but wanted to feel out what other people were doing.
