Default Vendor Review Guidelines

Full Product Reviews and Mini Reviews
Product reviews may take the form of either a Full Review or a Mini Review. Generally speaking, a Full Review entails a comprehensive review of the item. Mini Reviews are, by nature, much shorter in length and provide information in a succinct manner. All reviewers should clearly state any vested interest that they may have in the item being reviewed. For example, “my brother-in-law owns the company”; or, “the manufacturer sent the tool to me for free or at a discount”. While vendors may wish to join in the discussion of their products, they will not be permitted to write initial reviews. Follow up Posts

Members are encouraged to follow up the Full Product Reviews or Mini Reviews with posts relating their experience with the product. Or, a member may wish to ask follow up questions of the reviewer. Follow up posts are welcome in that they add to the richness of the review by providing additional dimension of thought.

Advertising for a different vendor under another vendors review will be edited or deleted. Please do not do this.

If you would like some assistance, Wolftat will be pleased to help you in preparing a Full Product Review. Feel free to contact him for help!

Monitoring of the Forum
The Product Review Forum Moderator will monitor the forum for any reviews, comments, or posts that are offensive or objectionable in nature. Care will be taken to ensure that the IAP Acceptable Use Policy is followed.

Reviews of your experiences with a vendor can be especially valuable if written in an objective evaluative manner. When preparing a Vendor Review, please consider the following points:
1. Name of the business including web address.
2. In what manner did you place your order? Over the phone? Thru a website? Email?
3. The nature of the items that you ordered (pen kits, lathe chuck, etc).
4. Provide an objective and subjective evaluation of your experience.
5. Will you order from this vendor again? Why or why not?

Please do not advertise for another vendor in a review about a different vendor.

Important: While it is permissible to objectively evaluate a vendor, BASHING will not be tolerated. PM Wolftat if you have questions regarding this policy.

Conquering all obstacles, both large and small, I shall never quit. To quit, to surrender, to give up is to fail.
