      PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!

      Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com

      To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
      yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.

      Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.

      You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group. These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
      will usually result in a better review, as well as making things easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
      changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit Moderator.

      Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they will use APPROVED in the subject line.

      If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.

      If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via the list or contact me directly.

        Hello Harlan,

        Thank you for your Owner Review, I am going to be your editor for this review.

        Before I get into it though there are some things we should discuss. We recommend that new reviewers start off with a simple item like clothing, cook pot or something like that rather than a complicated item like a tent. If you want to stick with this though that is fine, it will just take longer.

        Some very helpful information may be found here;
        http://www.backpackgeartest.org/lesson.php?lesson=BecomeTester&page=1

        Please notice the form that the review should take in the "Examples", you may also wish to browse the reviews of other experienced members for examples of the proper form.

        Please go through your review and address the following issues.

        Write a Product Description of the tent yourself. You can't paste in the bullet points from the Big Agnes web site as you have it now.

        All weights and measurements must have the metric equivalents listed also. A very good converter may be found here:

        http://www.backpackgeartest.org/convert.html

        A helpful tool is the Mentoring Program that teams new reviewers with experienced veterans to help get them through their first review(s). If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to the mentor coordinator, Jenn, at mentor@...

        If you do want to move forward do a rewrite and REPOST the review here.

        Ray

          Hi Harlan,

          Following a review of our Owner Review queue at BackpackGearTest.org I noticed you have not responded to the Edit given for the above Owner's Review, which was posted by Ray back on 17 Dec. Please refer to message number 80810 at
          http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BackpackGearTest/messages

          Are you planning to continue with the OR? We are here to help so please don't hesitate to ask if there is something we can assist you with so you can complete your Owner Review?

          Please let me know how you wish to proceed with this review so I can inform your editor and update the Edit Queue.

          Regards
