Do you feel that we need a review section where our members could provide ratings and honest feedback on products, tools, and equipment used in the trade?
Why? Why not?
Why? Why not?
I like power tools. They are cool to own. Well yeah that's about it.:whistling2:I'm with TJ. I feel its too much like work to write a review about a tool. Although, there are several people that would get a kick out of it. The problem will be getting members to write something that's interesting, comprehensible, and consistent.
It's probably better to make a tool review something like a contest, so the lazy people don't have to work too hard. For example, provide a poll with several like tools, and have people vote. If they're inspired to write a comment, or review, about the tool they chose, or avoided, so be it. I think it would create more spontaneity, and perhaps generate debate.
The advertisers would love it!
John,A poll format for introducing a tool wouldn't include a reward. It simply makes participation a lot easier and accessible for not only a handful of exclusive members, but for any lurker or drop in that would like to place a vote.
The bottom line is for everybody to participate in the subject of tool review, not just a handful of members that won't necessarily be representative of painters who are actually using these things out in the field.
