Vegweb Product Review Club!

Hey All,

I've been reading (and contributing) to a lot of the threads about tofu dogs, toothpaste, shoes, egg replacers, deodorant, lotions, makeup, etc. and it got me thinking. I know we all use vegweb for the loads of great recipes, but of course veg*nism is more than just food - unfortunately animals are exploited for a great many products.

So how about them product reviews?! http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=products 

Does everyone just look at how people rank products on vegan essentials and I'm out of the loop? Is BP going to start a Product Review club? Is the Diva cup even on there?

If there's not a secret source elsewhere on the internet, let's start a campaign to review every purchase we make!

Edit: updated title per BP's comments

wow, what a fun idea. you know, dink, you could make it the club....

i wasn't really aware of the product review section. i think i looked a couple times, back in the day, and it wasn't helpful. i'll take another peak. it would be esp good since often questions about products come up on here.

another thing people can check out is the "restaurants" tab. i added a lot of places for my "homeland" but many cities need help! the place doesn't have to be 100% vegan... it just needs to have some vegan chow. added things are reviewed by admin, so it does take a little time for them to get up (she's so busy dealing with us!!). but for cities with reviews, it is uber helpful.

Good Ideas! I think both the products and restaurants tabs have potential. I'm going to start adding to them now!

1. I changed the subject with your blessing :)

2. There are very very very few product reviews currently.

3. My experience has been that the product reviews (can't speak to restaurants) are infinitely faster at being posted than the recipes.

I rated a couple of restaurants that never got posted.  Maybe I screwed it up though...

It keeps telling me I need to log in to review a restaurant and I'm already logged in. I want to get the ball rolling

I also posted a couple restaurants and they never appeared.  I thought that maybe they had to be review like recipes?

I knew there were links...sadly I never noticed the product reviews.  I created a new one and added a couple reviews.  I sure hope it grows, it's a great idea.

good. i am the club king on here!

they are also reviewed and they do take a long time sometimes. my understanding is that yvette does all of the "checking" of things and sometimes it takes a little time to get things up.

it does this to me too often. i have tried logging out, closing the browser, and opening it again. that usually lets me send something in. i didn't report that issue to admin but that might be a good idea. are you using firefox? i wonder if it is a browser issue?

I reported the issue to the admin when I submitted a restaurant review a few weeks ago so they're aware of the issue.  Apparently there's not quick and easy fix for whatever the problem is.  Hopefully it'll get sorted out soon.

Doooood.  Has the Products tab always been there?  I just noticed it after reading this thread. 

BTW - I just posted a vegan Palms Springs restaurant.  It can be the test subject to see if it gets posted or lost in cyberspace.

Kudos to dinkfeet for bringing this to everyone's attention.  I have a habit of coming straight to the Q&A section when I log on and then checking the new recipes on the main page before logging off and never even opening up the other tabs!  Shame on me for not making fuller use of all the site features! :-[

Why do books have to be classified as "Animal Rights" or "Cookbooks"? There should be a Helth or General group. I want ot put the China Study and Skinny Bitch on there!

You should ask Admin - it's probably easy to add a category. I'm going to comb through my cookbooks tonight, but so far today I've put all my facial products and toothbrushes (yay Recycline!) on there!

Stop!  I will not let my supremacy be questioned like this.  I am the true leader and commander here, Mwahahahahaha!  >:(    Hey!  I just noticed that you stole my evil laugh... nooooooo!

Soon Dinkfeet, you will have learned what it is to incur my wrath!  Now get down and give me 20!  Erm, dollars, not push-ups.
