      Richard,
      I did mean definitely, sorry. I have a really busy weekend and start to next week so it is going to take me a bit to edit and repost. I just sent Jenn an email to get started with a mentor though. Once we exchange an email or two I will get started on the re-write.
      Thanks for your help.
      Jeremy

      > I trust you meant "definitely." (!!) Does this mean that you won't revise the OR for a few weeks? That's fine, no problem, but if you acknowledge this now it will save our list administrator some work and you some reminders.

To quote from our list administrator (see below) "ORs will NOT be accepted into the Owner Review Edit Queue if they do not clearly state the number of days/nights you have used the item. Given the nature of an owner review and the possible amount of years you could have owned the item we understand it may not be possible for you to recall the exact number of uses so an estimated number is fine."

I suggest that you study (a) the text and attachments available at the "How to Become a Tester" tab on the website (particularly the Survival Guide) and (b) message number 77535, in which Jamie (our administrator) sets out some additional rules for Owner Reviews.

This process will go more quickly than you think. You have a solid writing style and get out into the backcountry often and your OR includes several very useful insights. All you need is some help learning our rules.
