3924Re: Report compliance
- Aug 3, 2001FWIW, I think requiring owner reports as a prerequisite for testing
is a terrific approach. I hate the notion that we need to require
credit cards for this process. That would, as has been mentioned
earlier, leave some potential testers out over concerns about sending
credit card info out into cyberspace. More than that, whether pay
pal or credit cards, it would add tremendously to the work (unpaid)
that Jerry has to put into this venture, and I rather doubt (hope I'm
not speaking out of turn Jerry) that that's what he got into this
idea for in the 1st place.
Let's all hope that the use of owner reviews, and possibly starting
testers out with smaller items, will solve our problem.
On a side note, I think the ideas of testing get together sessions
and side-by-side comparison testing are great, though I think they
would tend to focus gear on a more limited number of testers.

tomorrow....I hope. This will accomplish two goals: build our gear
review database and try a less painless method of compliance.
