    Default New Trusted Reviewer Proposal.

    I have PMed 10 members with the following proposal, (4 TRs, 4 established members non TR and 2 Escorts). Having received a great response I have changed the text to represent their opinions and ideas. We would now like to throw it open to the general public for discussion. Please read the resultant proposal and vote.

    I maintain that EI have just about the best reviewing system on the net. But it is our forum that makes it such, and it is the constant policing by its members that keeps it so and keeps it as trustworthy as possible. I am always looking for a faster way of scanning a large review profile. The badges do make reviews stand out, but in fairness TRs are far and few between. You would be lucky to get 1 or two TRs on a review profile of 20 reviews. But upon scrutiny I would spot one or two of our buddies here. I have often PMed a member to get a “one on one” review. There may be other members on this same list but I don’t see them, because I don’t immediately recognise the established posters.

    I think I would be happy with the majority of established members being TRs. I have spent some time examining reviews by our fellow members and could really find little or no fault. So I feel the system needs more TRs and here is a list of criteria I would suggest:

    1. A list of all current TRs to be posted in sticky mode, in the established members lounge, allowing all established members to examine their suitability.

    2. The criteria to automatically qualify for TR status is suggested as a reviewer that has at least 5-10 ten reviews and be established & currently active member

    3. The TR must present his reviews in such a calibre & using standards expected of someone of his status. Trusted reviews should be informative, un-biased and should not contain any graphic content.

    4. TRs must be actively posting. This is to ensure that they are answerable to the forum. If a member decides to take a break or cut back on his posts this would be acceptable.

    5. A TR caught up in a fake scandal loses badge immediately


    I propose we petition the Managers/Mods but I would value your feedback first.

    Please vote on the Poll or discuss here.

    Thanks in advance.
    James Cork.

    A question before I vote.

    What criteria would be used to decide who are established members ?

    Sounds like a very sensible and fair way to go about things!

    Howya Dave. I think 269 posts here is considered established.

    Would you not agree that this could lead to people arguing between themselves about others that they feel are or arn't posting enough.
    I would be worried that this might feed the the idea that there is a clique here and it could be alienating new posters.

    I think the fact that the member is establish is only to ensure he has sufficient experience here on the boards and is more streetwise than a newbie. I have only suggested 269 as this is the level required to gain access to the Established Members Lounge. If it would be preferred to make it higher voice it. The idea that the member must be active is mainly to ensure that he is answerable and not anonymous. Whether he posts every day or once a week is immaterial. Whether he is a member of a clique or not is also immaterial. What we want are reviewers that we know and can trust.

    The 269 post limit is something that is already in place and gives Established member status.

    Can I add to point 5 please. Any TR abusing his TR position ie looking for discount/freebie in exchange for a good review should loose the badge as well.

    This could be a good system..... all those in the Pat cave please consider this proposal seriously. We are after all the final customer in this chain and this is what we want.

    Funnily enough I have recently been in contact with RicFlair about the trusted reviewer criteria.
    I had asked him about the review from an escort, as on my profile I've seven references through the system they have set up. And was it not strange for me to be asking for another ?
    To cut a long story short Ric got back to me a couple of days ago and told me they were not planning any changes.
    But if there were changes made I think there should be some input from the escorts whether they post here or not, Maybe the reference system on profiles could be included ?

    I think that the post limit is a good idea. Even though it probably took me a year and a half to reach !!
