does anyone, including(t.e.r.) know why when we want to review a provider already list here,that t.e.r. can't just have box to check(for example).that either loads info or just allows us to start
the review,instead for recopying the sh-t(i mean info like website,email add.ect,ect,ect,ect,ect,)
it takes me 10-20 min.just to do that(main reason i don't more review.TOO MUCH TIME WASTED)
I'VE BEEN WANTING THIS SINCE I STARTED.thanks for allowing the rant.
I am going to guess that it cuts down on fake reviews.
is to discourage fake reviews. Yes, it's a pain in the ass to fill all that shit in, but remember, it's their site, and they make the rules. Also, no one is forcing you to write reviews, so it you don't want to jump through the hoops, just don't write them and pay for your VIP days.
I have over 2800 FREE Days of VIP and havn't pay anything in TWO years and I have NEVER worte one review lol !
At 2 days per incident, you have done a lot of reading and spent a lot of time too. Seems like doing a few reviews would not be as time-consuming.
I have well over 400 days myself, (now, in my bank, not counting days already used) and I know someone who has over 8 years of VIP, and only wrote one review ever.
OK, I know that we get 15 days per review after the first 2. Other than winning the TER lottery, how are you folks racking up more free days? I can't find anything in the Newbie or Policy discussion boards, but I haven't been through all of the pages and I can't find a way to do a search on all pages in here.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated?
Open to PM if you want to keep your methods more private.
can I also get a PM?
can you plz PM me as well?
Can you PM me how to become a vip member without writing reviews?
How????? Please let me know
I had and still have a rant about the review policy her at TER.
I did bring up a Vouch System. Looks like that has fallen on deaf ears.
Yes, it's a royal pain in the arse to copy and paste the same stuff over and over, but that's the way TER wants it done. NO, I do not agree with the way TER wants it done.
The current format cuts down on fake reviews significantly.
Make the process easier and you have bots spamming TER with nothing but fake reviews.
it should just fill all the boxes in that are already staying the same anyway. That way, all you guys would have to do is write the novel part.
Because of this ridiculous policy! If I see a gal who already has a ton of good reviews I rarely bother to write one anymore unless I'm really bored and have time to kill. Now, if I felt like the lady had slipped based on her old reviews I would contribute a new one but if I had a great time like the 12 guys before me it's just not worth investing my time and navigating the profile form.
At one time the TER gods said that they WANTED it to be WORK to write a review. Well, they got their wish!
It's just we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right!
I agree that filling out the profile every time you write a review is silly, especially when nothing changes on the profile without a problem report. I have posted on this myself and replied on other threads on this and other boards.
However, I think a review still should require some thought and work. Don't make it "too" easy. As it is, there are fake reviews written to get free VIP. Make it too easy and there will only be more. If you are still giving VIP days for reviews, then people should have to work a little for it. So hopefully there is some compromise on still having some work involved, but not having to refill the profile every single time. Good Luck.
Unfortunately it looks like your attempt to purchase VIP membership has failed due to your card being declined. Good news is that we have several other payment options that you could try.
We thank you for your purchase!
Membership should be activated shortly. You'll receive notification!
