  • New RP feature: Product Review Database

    Click on "Reviews" over on the navbar and you'll find something very new for us: an interactive review database.

    Here forum members will be able to enter their own reviews for products we care about. Don't see something you want to review? Suggest it and it will be up for everyone to review shortly.

    In fact, I really need volunteers to add vendors and items. The more items listed, the more reviews we'll get.

    It should be fairly self-explanatory, but I've made a small FAQ for it and put the link on the main page.

    Two things:
    Submitting an image via URL doesn't work, so you'll have to save it locally before submitting. This is a software bug, the author is aware of it, and promises to have it fixed shortly.

    Also, our original reviews page is still up here in case you have a review over there you want to transfer to the new database. It will remain up in case someone has linked to it, but it will no longer be updated.

    So go, have fun, add your reviews to any items you like, read everyone else's reviews, and don't forget we need vendors and items suggested (use the navbar links to suggest).

    Leave feedback and questions about the new system in this thread.

    Hey Doug,

    the new system looks great, looks like it's gonna be a really nice feature to have on the site! the one problem (which I hope can be fixed easily) is that when I click on the "Review" link on the menu, it goes to the old page ( http://www.retouchpro.com/reviews/index.html ) not the new one ( http://www.retouchpro.com/reviews/ - which I found by erasing index.html off the URL). besides that, it appears to have some very nice features, it's easy to navigate, and I'll start adding Vendors/products as soon as I have some free time.

      It looks like you need to delete your cache, since I did change the menubar links.

      And, I'm happy to announce that, after only one day, the number of new user-submitted reviews is...(drumroll please)...ZERO!

        Thanks Doug,

        that solved the problem instantly. well, that number is up to an amazing *1* now (even though it is a review of something that has already been reviewed by somebody else)

          Hey, the idea is to get as many reviews as we can of as many products as we can think of

            Some kind person or persons is submitting a lot of products, now all we need is your opinions on these products (and you can submit your own favorites, as well).


            Total vendors: 36
            Total products: 95
            Total reviews: 20
            Total products with reviews: 19
            Percentage of products with reviews: 20.00%

                Review system fixed and upgraded
                by Doug Nelson
                I just finished upgrading our reviews system to work with the new forum software, so you should now be able to enter reviews, suggest items, etc. again.

                OK, I got the bugs out of the new software (most of them, anyway). There's still a couple of ugly pages, but that's my fault and not the programmer's. I'm fixing them as I spot them (you'd be surprised at how many there are).

                So, what have I been babbling about, you ask?

                I'm sure you've all noticed the ugly little banner at the bottom left of every page. This is Amazon.com's "Honor System" service.

                I've had a lot of people recommend I join this service, but I fought...

                This isn't a new review, but I just learned it supports 16bits per color channel mode. I felt bad for missing this initially, so I added it to the review and now I'm mentioning it here.
