+ 1 “Owes a Review”

ad

Ok, I completely understand why sources can list you as owing a review, it makes sense. Although, if I’m very good at keeping up on reviews, I’m dumbfound as to which source I owe a review to. Is there a way to know who tagged me as “Owing a review”?

If you owe a review, it means you have received gear from someone.
Not remembering the source means getting into trouble, or you're getting very close.
That's my opinion.

Thank you, but I understand that. What I don’t understand, as I keep very good track of who I owe reviews to, and I always advise the source of when to expect the review, so I can’t imagine who would tag me. I have no problem being tagged, but think it would be fair to know by who so I can contact them and advise them as to how far along in my cycle, and when to expect a review. No source should expect us to drop everything and start using their gear immediately. If I can swap into a different brand of something I am currently running, I always do just to see which brand I react better to, but If I got a bulking gear promo, but I’m currently cutting, I always warn the source that I my not be able to review until a few months later. Most of them are cool with it. If they aren’t, I thank them and back out of the promo.

I am definitely not a promo whore, as I’ve been on this page for about eight years and didn’t get involved in promos until a few months ago. Like an idiot, I based my purchases on price and stuck with the same two sources for several years now, but one wasn’t worth a shit and probably very underdosed. Im finally started to see who the best sources are selling the best brands. I rather pay a little more and get quality gear, but the promos have been very beneficial in doing so, and I always place a courtesy order as soon as I try their gear. Im sure that any source I’ve gotten a promo from would confirm that

In my opinion, no one owes a review. I understand it's good for the site and the source but I don't feel it's my place to demand a review from someone. If a source does a good (or bad) enough job, people will review on their own accord. I actually thought that flag was only something sources could see.
I see the purpose for it and I wish everyone would review but the reality is, 1/100 (likely less) actually do

a way to know who tagged

soon

Then again, if they really cannot figure out who they owe a review to, that is a sign of a flaming promo whore...

Makwa's picture

Everybody is asking and wondering who tagged them. That will be a welcomed addition. Good

Thanks for the advice, but most of my reviews this year were for things I actually purchased. Also, as a courtesy to most of the sources I get promos from, I either add to the promo order, or place another order right after I receive the promo. I’m definitely not a promo whore as I’ve turned down a few promos recently. The one promo I recently tried joining is because they actually offer a brand I need

Thanks for the warning. So you shouldn’t review gear you’ve actually purchased? Doesn’t make much sense to me, but it is what it is, and I appreciate the feedback. I had no idea about this. Eight years on this site and I’ve learned the most in the past month. SMH, LOL. Thanks again, Bro!

Consider a promo a discount to incentivize you to build a cycle from one source. You review the cycle, not the promo gear I got from X, the gear I bought from Y, and the other promo gear I got from Z.

How many cycles plus PCT can you run a year? Six cycles would be a lot. (6 reviews) add some for PCT gear, men's health, HGH... 8 to 10 reviews should be more than enough for anyone.

Those jumping on several promos to build a cycle are the ones getting into trouble. It's not fair to the source, and not fair to eRoids ranking system. And the reviews tend to be canned; providing little value.

Thank you for the explanation, which completely makes sense now.

Because I order in small increments, I find that I can just update my most recent review on a source, as I would end up with definite whore status if I created a fresh review each time I order. As example, I have three different source products running right now, but I have already rated them each this year, so I would just go to my last post, edit it and state that I have run more from them... that is, in all honesty, as good a plug to a good source as adding rating stars (which is about all a new review can do for them). To see someone repeatedly using a source is pretty good referral to me. I always paint the discussion page, that is what I think is the best way to reach new people for the source. Just recently, I turned down a pretty awesome promo, but I painted their promo page with praise I feel they deserve, just to tell them how cool they are... that is a pretty good plug too. I wasn't quite hip to the 8-reviews, but I certainly could not run more gear than I have on hand or order in the next 90-days. Just a thought.

Probably should just stop trying to bullshit with the amount of gear your using from different sources

Post whatever trolling, shit talking comments you want in the forums. Taking it to the review pages is going too far. It's hard enough to keep up with the shitty reviews as it is without having an emotionally stunted man-child deliberately turning our reviews into shit.

I don’t want the karma back lol. I’m honestly done with this site and figured i would do as I promised CENSORED, and give them the review I owe them. It’s really no skin off my back them taking my karma. I’ve learned a lot from this site and made great friends. The majority of the guys I talk to have all moved off this site to other less communist platform lol.

Greg's picture

Even without the trolling comments, the review would have been flagged. It was total BS, not even clever, not helpful to the source or this site.

Rustyhooker's picture

Several folks negged your review and @Greg removed it for rules violations. Dont play victim

Bjmoney85's picture

The only victim is you WUSTY, do u give it to Greg’s tranny son or take it? U seem like a bottom to me but that’s just going off looks

Greg's picture

Do you think you can bait me kid? Sorry, I'm not as insecure and emotionally stunted as you are.

Bjmoney85's picture

No definitely not Greg, your so smart and clever you could never be baited by such a peasant as myself, I mean I don’t have any KARMA!!

Greg's picture

Peasant implies a classist issue; I have no issue with you living in a trailer park. It's your maturity I'm calling into question. Why stop at my kids? I have a mother too. Keep it up, you'll do better at destroying your own rep than I ever could.

Bjmoney85's picture

I would never say ANYTHING negative about your mother!!
What me and her have is beautiful, I don’t care what anyone says!

Greg's picture

She died last Christmas at 85 years old. I'm sorry for your loss.

In mols defense it’s a pretty common term when talking about homosexuality among men. If you’ve ever been to jail it’s a pretty big insult to be called a bottom bitch
