|Happy WDC Anniversary! |
|Hey everyone, Jace here. I hope you're enjoying WDC's 18th Anniversary festivities. I finally carved out some time to do some reviews yesterday--only five, but it's a start. But I was reminded about some aspects of reviewing on site of which many Newbies may not know (and we oldies may have forgotten). Hence, my tip for the day: |
Let's say you receive a review from another member and you wish to reward that member with some gift points (GPs). You have a couple options.
1. You can respond to the email you received telling you of the review and send GPs with your response.
2. Or, you can go to the Public Reviews page , find your review by typing the review ID number in the search window, and press Enter. You should see a box in the upper right corner allowing you to credit the reviewer between 25 to 10,000 GPs. The amount you credit is totally up to you. This will only work with reviews that are public.
Crediting your reviewer with the latter method provides greater weight for the reviewer's standing on the Credited Reviewer page. Why is this important? WDC assigns credits based upon the size of the Gift Point award, the length of the review and other factors. The thought here is that more helpful reviews are given more weight by the site AND by the person receiving the review, thus propelling the reviewer higher on the Credited Reviewer page. This, in turn, encourages that reviewer to continue giving quality reviews.
A few caveats: longer reviews are not always better reviews, short reviews are not necessarily bad reviews, and it's up to you as the receiver to decide if the review is helpful and deserving of additional credit.

|Thanks to all who wished me a Happy Birthday. I just returned from vacation to find some nice remarks. |
Now I have a lot to get organized, both at work AND on WDC.
Have an awesome day filled with all of your favorite things!!
Kindest Regards, Lilli
|Happy Anniversary, Jace! |
May you have at least a hundred more...
