Monday's Crown of the Day
17/09/2012 - (04:12 PM)
The Samsung WB500 Digital Camera is the subject of the excellent review and subsequent winner of today’s Crown of the Day. A superb camera! is penned by nickbrown60, and not only is it packed full of useful info, it remains clear to read and easy to follow - which is of course perfect for consumers. The camera has also received a very positive write-up, so it’s one to investigate further for sure!
Crown of the Day!
13/09/2012 - (11:51 AM)
This morning we’ve had a superb review land on our desk! caseybrady1992 has caught our eye with his excellent writing style, details and analysis of the soundtrack CD from the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. His review called Williams' Legacy has a wonderful flow to itself and it comes as recommended reading for all from the dooyooHQ!
Celebrated dooyooers of the Week!
12/09/2012 - (01:27 PM)
dooyooer Anti is our first Celebrated dooyooer of the Week for their review about The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern. Although they are not a big fan of romance novels and romatic films, this book did not fail to disappoint and gets five stars from Anti! kristoph23 did not fall in love with the Art of Murder: FBI Confidential PC game but we nonetheless really liked his review. There is tons of detail and user experience that will help shoppers make an informed choice.
Jake Speed has picked up several Crowns over his time on dooyoo. This week too, he has impressed us with his reviews about the Music Album Our Time In Eden by 10,000 Maniacs and also the Comic Book Asterix and the Class Act. Do check out his profile for some good reads. Next on our list of Celebrated dooyooers of the Week is k444tmc who caught our eye with her review Don't trust strangers... about the film Trust. Her review has made us want to see this film, so do go check it out!
The final name on the list is lak11 who too has always produced excellent reviews. She has picked up her most recent Crown for her review A TALE OF THREE TABLES which is about a Argos Nest of Tables. Do check out lak11’s profile for some other good reads too. Well that's a wrap for today but we’ll be back again with more Celebrated dooyooers of the Week next week, so until then happy reviewing!
dooyooCommunity Tea Break: topsyturvy
07/09/2012 - (04:46 PM)
In this dooyooCommunity Tea Break we had a chat with long-time dooyooer, topsy-turvy. She’s been on the site for more than 10 years, which we love! Certainly an opinion you can trust, and here’s a fun fact for you: Did you know that her very first Crown was for a review written on Haggis!? There’s lots of other great reviews in her profile too if you’re not a big fan of Haggis, so be sure to check them out when you’re on the hunt for good reads.
If you’d like to take part in a dooyooCommunity Tea Break, just drop us a line and we’ll put you in the hot seat.
dooyooTeam: What was it that brought you to dooyoo, topsyturvy?
topsy-turvy: I joined all the way back in 2002 because the site seemed like a great community and I could express my opinion on products as well as earning a bit of money while doing so.
dooyooTeam: We’ve noticed that you’ve written in lots of different categories over the years on dooyoo. What's your favourite category to write in?
topsy-turvy: I love to write about Health & Beauty as well as Household Appliances as I feel these are my strongest points and I love to share my opinion the most on these particular products.
dooyooTeam: Ah yes, we see you’ve recently picked up a Crown for your review, A Stylish Addition, which is in the household appliance category. Nice work! It’s probably hard for you to choose, but which do you think is the best review that you’ve written over the last 10 years?
topsy-turvy: It would probably be the one I did on my printer review on the Epson Stylus SX415 as it was my only review ever to be featured on the community page so I was very proud of that one.
dooyooTeam: That’s a nicely written review! What will you be reviewing next?
topsy-turvy: I will be reviewing more health & beauty products as I have bought a lot of them lately and want to try them out to share my views with you all.
dooyooTeam: That’s what we always like to hear from members. What do you normally do with your dMs rewards?
topsy-turvy: I save my dooyoo miles up for cash as I use this for my holiday savings or general savings account, it really helps me out!
dooyooTeam: Pleased to hear it’s being put to good use! Do you think being a member of dooyoo changed your shopping habits, or changed the way you make your product purchases?
topsy-turvy: Yes, definitely. I never buy a product now before looking on here first to see what other users have said and I shop around for better deals.
dooyooTeam: That sounds like a very good idea indeed! Thanks for talking to us, topsyturvy. We just have one more question for you - what is it that you love most about dooyoo!?
topsy-turvy: I love the community spirit and that you change levels around so that everyone can review what they like, as well as your competitions etc, and that you always take product suggestions in so we can all write about the things we want too.
August’s Competition Winners
07/09/2012 - (11:03 AM)

Finally our third place goes to member rockinrach08 for her detailed review about the Amazon Kindle Touch.

dooyooCommunity Tea Break: Going Bananas
30/08/2012 - (02:03 PM)
Grab yourself a seat, get comfortable, and read on to learn more about dooyooCommunity Video Games Guide, all-round nice guy and cutest monkey in the jungle, SWSt. Oh, and he’s also recently written his 1,000th review!
dooyooTeam: Thanks for answering our questions, SWSt! Tell us, what brought you to dooyoo initially?
SWSt: I seem to remember that I was researching on online retailer that I’d never used before and trying to find out if I should trust them when I came across a review on the site. For me, that’s the real value of dooyoo – it doesn’t just cover the big, expensive stuff like phones or laptops, but gives reliable advice on smaller purchases, too.
dooyooTeam: It’s great to hear dooyoo has been so useful for you! So besides the banana category, what's your favourite category to write in?
SWSt: Well, as noted in my profile info, I’ll try my hand at reviewing anything except trees. I’m a bit of a film and gaming geek (particularly retro games or iPhone/iPad games) so probably those two, closely followed by books.
dooyooTeam: What’s your best review on dooyoo, and did you type it with your hands or feet?
SWSt: I probably should say my reviews for the iPhone or Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords since both those won me Review of the Month.
The one I have the fondest memory of is probably my review of the film Halloween Resurrection. I initially wrote this as a straightforward review, but when I came to actually post it, somehow came up with the idea of making a film/recipe mash-up (don’t ask me how – I’d possibly had too many bananas that day) and so I re-wrote it. It made me laugh and seemed to amuse other people too. I seem to remember I had to type that one with my nose after a particularly nasty fall from a tree left both my arms and legs in banana skin casts.
dooyooTeam: I think I remember that review! Funny, but still useful for consumers. What’s on the cards to be reviewed next?
SWSt: I’ve got a whole slew of book reviews coming up, with the odd film review thrown in. No trees, though.
dooyooTeam: We’ve never known a monkey who has such an aversion to reviewing trees! What do you do with your dooyooMiles rewards?
SWSt: Usually cash them in and bank them and then use them to treat Mrs SWSt and I to a nice meal out. Sometimes I even let her choose something other than bananas off the menu.
dooyooTeam: She’s a lucky women! Has being a member of dooyoo changed your shopping habits, or changed the way you research your product purchases?
SWSt: As you can probably guess from my first answer, I’ve always been in the habit of researching products, but now I’ve found dooyoo I know that there are reviewers here I can trust, either because they seem to have the same sorts of taste that I do or from their previous reviews. Some other sites fall victim to “fake” reviews written by people with a vested interest and I know how good some of my fellow Guides are at sniffing these out on dooyoo!
dooyooTeam: You’re right about that and it’s good to know you’re out there keeping your eyes open, too. Thanks again for talking with us SWSt. Just to wrap up the interview, what is it that you love most about dooyoo!?
SWSt: Pretty much everything really! I love writing, I like reading other reviews and finding stuff I had no idea existed and I enjoy the sense of community and some of the friendly banter between members.
Go Great Britain!
29/08/2012 - (02:46 PM)
In just a few hours the official opening for the Paralympic Games begins in the Olympic Stadium in London. Over 4,000 athletes from 162 countries will be competing in the games that started out in 1948 as a small group of WWII veterans. Artistic directors Jenny Sealey and Bradley Hemmings are the creative minds behind the ceremony, which has been given the title, Enlightenment. No doubt it's going to be something special. The ceremony starts at 8.30pm, and while there could be a few tickets still floating around for those in London, you can check it out on the telly this evening.
In general it’s been a great year for us in the sporting department, and we’re excited about the upcoming events. Great Britain has traditionally done very well at the Paralympics and we can’t wait to see them do it all again this year! All the best to the British athletes, we’ll be cheering for you!

Celebrated dooyooers of the Week!
29/08/2012 - (11:41 AM)
Newcomer AlexEdge has been writing some very good reviews of late. He’s managed to pick up a few Crowns for some of his Film and Video Game reviews, and he’s definitely one to keep an eye on in the coming weeks. Another one to watch is Setter, they’re a new member who also caught our eye today. They’re just starting out but already have some good reviews on a variety of different products.
At the other end of the spectrum, anwar7 has been on the site since 2004! Which is excellent going and she’s consistently writing top-notch reviews on dooyoo. She’s had a trip to Australia recently and is sharing her experiences about her time there. If you’re thinking of making the journey down-under, or just enjoy reading about far off places, there’s plenty of useful information in those reviews. Magical Maggie! is a good place to start. HayleyBlondiee also makes the Celebrated dooyooers of the Week list; she picked up her very first Crown for her review of Inika’s Mineral Bronzer, and she has a lot of other well written Fashion & Beauty reviews, too. Be sure to drop by her profile when you have a chance. Lucky last today is PandaEyes, who has been steadily writing excellent reviews for a while now. Most recently she’s grabbed Crowns for Got 2 B this for a night out! and "The more you give, the more you get" – Ted, but there’s a lot of other quality reviews sitting in her profile just waiting to be read.
Thanks dooyooers, we really appreciate all of your contributions to the site!

Crown of the Day!
27/08/2012 - (09:52 AM)
If you’re looking for some good reviews written over the weekend, one to check out would be lillamarta’s Fragrance review, Forest fruit shampoo. Unfortunately Lanvin Jeanne Lanvin’s Eau de Parfum hasn’t come through the review very well, and has only managed to pick up one feeble star, but we liked the concise, analytical approach to writing that lillamarta took. It’s an excellent review and it picks up today’s Crown of the Day. Congratulations lillamarta!
New Facebook Competition
24/08/2012 - (12:23 PM)

Our spotlight's on Edinburgh today
23/08/2012 - (04:00 PM)
The Edinburgh International Festival is the largest arts festival in the world and is taking place in Edinburgh as we speak. It started on the 9th of August and is running through to the 2nd of September, so you've still got some time to get there if you're quick! The mission of the festival's organisers is to be the most exciting and innovative art festival in the world, which is quite a task! But year after year they prove to give that a very good go. Running alongside this, until the 27th of August, is also the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. What started in 1947 as a group of performers 'crashing' the Edinburgh International Festival is now a fully-fledged festival of its own. The policy that remains at the core of the fringe festival is anyone can take part, as long as they have something to say and somewhere to say it.
If you’ve never been to either festival you you may not know that there is a huge variety of stuff going on – from opera, exhibitions, live events, plays, music to cooking classes and creative yoga! There really is something for everyone. We can’t be there this year because there’s too much for us to do here at dooyooHQ. If you’ve recently been there we’d love for you to share your recent thoughts with the dooyooCommunity. There are listings for both festivals on the site or you could always let us know what you think about it on our Facebook page.
If you need a place to stay, plenty of dooyooers have given their opinion about Hotels in Edinburgh, and there's also lots of information to be found on the site about Edinburgh in General, or Cafe and Restaurants, too.

An Apple a Day...
23/08/2012 - (10:28 AM)
The iPad is not going anywhere soon. More and more people are looking to use these machines as their TV, music player, internet browser and of course much, much more. They’re not cheap, therefore it’s important to know what you’re going to get for your money and that’s where dooyoo reviews come in very handy! kevin121 wrote an excellent review yesterday of the 64GB Wi-Fi version of the Apple iPad 2 called, Should this be the apple of my i? It’s very well written and has a lot of personality in the review, as well as all the essential useful information. Great review, be sure to check it out. But be warned, you might find yourself parting ways with around £500 cash soon after.
Celebrated dooyooers of the Week!
22/08/2012 - (03:55 PM)
Gracing our list of Celebrated dooyooers of the Week today are five dooyoers who have caught our attention with their reviewing skills. First up is member jo1976 who has made her opinion quite clear about these John Cotton Rebound Pillows in, I won't Re-Buy these Rebound Pillows! It is a negative product review but we think it’s really well balanced and informative for our readers, so do check it out. koshkha is a long standing dooyooer and Guide with many fantastic Travel reviews under her belt. Today she is a celebrated dooyooer, too! We love her work and newcomers should check out her profile to find some ideas about writing Crown worthy reviews.
daisylee3’s handy work about The Body Shop Body Round Brush has earned her a place on our list, too. The product sounds great and you get a real sense of using this brush whilst reading her review. Keep up the good work daisylee3! hogsflesh is another long standing dooyooer with great Film reviews and several Crowns to his name. This week his work has impressed us, check out Countess Perverse(DVD) or Children Of The Stones - The Complete Series – both are really good film reviews.
The final member on our honorary list is mjc121 who thinks that the Sherlock Holmes - The Complete Collection (DVD) is, as his title review explains, Far better than the BBC's attempt! We like this review and there are more well written Crowned reviews in his account, so do take a little peek! That’s all for today folks, we’ll be back with a new list of Celebrated dooyooers of the Week next week, so until then keep reviewing, it might be you who catches our eye next!
21/08/2012 - (02:10 PM)
We’re doing a quick change around today; the Furniture, Toy Cars, Dolls, and Child Safety categories are all moving down in to Level 2, whilst Make Up and Hair Care are moving up into Level 1.
Happy reviewing dooyooers!
dooyooCommunity Tea Break: angelboouk
17/08/2012 - (11:06 AM)
Every now and then we like to sit down with a dooyoo member to find out a little bit more about them and their dooyoo story. Not so long ago we sat down with regular reviewer, angelboouk, read on to find out more.
If you’re interested in taking part in a dooyooCommunity Tea Break, just drop Hal and Simon a dooyooMail, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch!
dooyooTeam: Thanks for taking the time to sit with us angelboouk. So what was it that brought you to dooyoo in the first place?
angelboouk: I spotted a post about dooyoo on MSE and at the time I was looking to make a few extra pennies as I was at college and had a young family - two and a half years later I'm still here!
dooyooTeam: Two and a half years, and over 1,000 reviews too! That’s really good going, what's your favourite category to write in?
angelboouk: Fashion & Beauty - I love nothing more than trying new beauty items especially Perfume and I enjoy telling others what I think of different brands and beauty products. This is closely followed by Toys and UK Travel.
dooyooTeam: Out of all the reviews you’ve written, which do you think was your best?
angelboouk: I would say my travel reviews have been my best, but if I had to pick one it would be my Blackpool Zoo review, as I really enjoyed writing that one.
dooyooTeam: It sounds like a nice place, and it’s always good to know the animals are being looked after properly. What is it that you do with your dooyooMiles rewards?
angelboouk: My dooyoo miles are mainly used for birthday and Christmas treats from Amazon but if I request a bank transfer it goes in the holiday pot. I like to make the most out of each withdrawal.
dooyooTeam: Very sensible! What is it that you love most about dooyoo?
angelboouk: The people - not everyone gets on but there are lots of lovely people on dooyoo and many have become super friends.
dooyooTeam: It’s really nice to hear that you’ve made some good friends through dooyoo. Has being a member of dooyoo changed your shopping habits, or changed the way you research your product purchases?
angelboouk: Definitely. I used to go into a shop and pick up a product or go to a travel agents and just accept whatever hotel was cheapest. I now research to see what the majority have said and it allows me to make a better informed decision - this has saved me some money!
dooyooTeam: That’s great! Anything else to add?
angelboouk: I would just like to thank everyone who has read my reviews and given me the motivation to improve over the past 2 years.
Crown of the Day!
16/08/2012 - (11:06 AM)
dooyooer Marieukxx has caught our attention with a very insightful review about The Mooncup. She has put in a great amount of detail and thought into her review which makes it an extremely useful read for women. Beware this review is detailed!!! comes with a warning, but we at dooyooHQ are not squeamish at all. In fact, we appreciate all the experience and advice Marieukxx has shared with the dooyooCommunity about the Mooncup. She’s picking up the Crown of the Day for her hard work!
Celebrated dooyooers of the Week
15/08/2012 - (11:21 AM)
What a busy couple of weeks! Things are slowly getting back to normal around dooyoo HQ after the dooyooGames, and what better way to come down than settling in with a brand new set of talented reviewers; our Celebrated dooyooers of the Week.
We’re going to kick the list off with lights84 today. She’s been steadily writing excellent reviews over the last few weeks, and just this week has picked up a Crown for her efforts in the Smartphone category. Be warned though, Sony’s Xperia S Black does get a rather harsh critique! m_illie is also on the list today; This is a public service announcement! With Guitars! is a great Music Album review and has earned her a Crown. There are plenty of other interesting reviews in her profile, too, so be sure to stop by when you’re looking for some new reading material.
The dooyooGames Triathlon winner, cornishchic, is next up. Although she’s been on the site a while it’s her debut as a Celebrated dooyooer of the Week! She’s written a lot of high quality reviews of late. Lots of useful reviews about products for kids and around the house for instance, as well as a bit of UK / Ireland Travel and Fashion & Beauty, too. joey92 is our forth Celebrated dooyooer this week. She’s written a lot of useful consumer reviews recently; Special Specialized for one. That review covers the Specialized Hardrock Bike and has been awarded a shiny pointy hat. If you or someone in the family is in the market for a new bike, that’s a review to investigate. Wrapping up today’s list is the ever consistent ladybracknell. While there’s a slight focus on Books with her review choices, she also reviews other things very well indeed. Her recent review of the Japanese Anemone Plant is excellent, giving readers a lot of useful information in a clear and concise format.
dooyooGames 2012: Relay Winners
13/08/2012 - (04:48 PM)
We’re awash in red, white and blue confetti after that spectacular closing ceremony last night. The games in London have showcased the best of Britain to the world; what a show we put on! But sadly, all good things must come to an end. With the big closing ceremony, we too have come to the end of our marathon of excitement on dooyoo and our own dooyooGames 2012! We’ve had such a ball reading all the entries and getting things set up for the events. Of course what made it very special was the outstanding response from the dooyooCommunity. Floods of entries and a lot of support from the community, helped make it a very special dooyooGames. Before we finish though, we have the winners of the big Relay to be announced!
Once again, we’ve been through a gruelling process of elimination, deliberation and checking. After going backwards and forwards several times, we’ve finally decided on our winning team... The British Lions are the winners of the dooyooGames 2012 Relay! dawnymarie and tigger1992 gave the team two superb reviews about the Cuisinart CPK17U kettle and the Kiko Medium Foundation respectively. Jake Speed provided the team with his book review of The James Bond Omnibus: 002 by Ian Fleming. Lastly, A printer with 'mood swings' was dobbysmum’s contribution to The British Lions winning entry. We were really impressed at how different the four reviews were and how detailed a picture they painted about the products. A great entry and a well deserved 20,000 dooyooMiles will be split between the four members, as well as a dooyoo cap sent to the front door!
Although we could only pick one winner, it was a tough competition. Lots of you must have been messaging old friends from the dooyooCommunity or making news ones. Two other teams stood out for us during the Relay and deserve an honourable mention; Dooyoolympians [ helenc72, Holland1, MsTricia, TheGoodSurveyer ] and Relay- Ables [ MarcoG, angelboouk, Nar2, catsholiday ] also had fantastic entries which we really loved. The Relay has really brought our community of dooyoers a little bit closer, and we would’ve liked to award all your efforts but unfortunately we could only pick one winning team.
There are of course lots of other exciting competitions in the pipeline for you, so stay tuned for your chance to earn some bonus dooyooMiles and have some fun!

dooyooGames 2012: Triathlon Winners!
10/08/2012 - (02:08 PM)
For the last week we’ve been receiving entries from competitors taking part in the dooyooGames Triathlon. To compete they had to flex their reviewing muscles across three different categories, making sure they review at least one Level 1 product. This is the second to last event in the dooyooGames, and once again we’ve had a really tough time choosing the winners. Before we started the dooyooGames we didn’t realise how difficult this part of it would be - there are a lot of talented dooyooers out there! However, we have managed to come to a decision…
First place winner, picking up the 5,000 dooyooMiles and top podium spot, is cornishchic. We thought her three reviews were just excellent. They’re enjoyable to read, and easy to understand, as well as of course containing all the necessary information that someone would want to know when researching. My daughter travels in pinkpinkpink style! looks at the Koochi Roadrunner Pushchair, My favourite park is a Travel review about Boscawen Park in Truro, Cornwall, and Professional keyboard player in the making covers the Bruin Preschool Pink Light Up Keyboard. Congratulations, cornishchic, a well deserved Triathlon win!
Second place winner, walking away with a cool 2,500dMs and the second podium spot, is alyson29. We appreciated her precise approach to writing the reviews, and you definitely feel that she’s spent time thinking about the reviews, which in turn creates an extremely useful and detailed review. At last, I've found a purse that lasts more than 3 months!, Triple results, but not triple the price, and I'm an Asda Scrubber!, are all recommended reading from dooyoo HQ.
So, only third place left! After some serious deliberation, we’re awarding this one to Drewster_Rooster. We’re not sure how this man managed to write such great reviews with a new-born baby in the house, but clearly he’s one of the few men able to multitask! Drewster manages to maintain a clear but relaxed tone throughout his reviews, which makes them nice easy to follow, and he includes lots of little pointers here and there, meaning you get a real sense of what the product is like. Be sure to check out Two more Thumbs up for Tommee Tippee, Cherries for the Car, and Mad, Bad and Dangerous to know when you next get a chance.
Well done to all the competitors that took part in the Triathlon! There’s just one final event left in the dooyooGames now, the Relay, where the teams are competiting for the grand prize of 20,000 dooyooMiles! The results will be announced on Monday but this event ends at midnight tonight, so you still have a few hours to get your entries in. Good luck!
-Hal & Simon
Crown of the Day and Final dooyooGames Call!
09/08/2012 - (12:00 PM)
thehonesttruth picks up our Crown of the Day today for a cracking review of the Indesit IS50E1X cooker. She really likes this cooker because it not only has all the basic features like the hob, oven, and grill, but it also comes with great extras like safety lights, a timer and a viewing window. We like the sound of this cooker and we really like this review, so make sure you have a good read of Hey, good looking, what you got cooking?

He has picked up a well deserved Crown this week for his tech-savvy review called nVidia GeForce 8600 GT, which is brimming with information!
danielleg1989 has written a fab review about the Eclectus Parrot, and boy does she know her stuff! As danielleg1989 points out, they are expensive pets at 600 pounds each, but they are the loveliest! Our next Celebrated dooyooer of the Week is walsha11 who has given the film Crazy, Stupid, Love four dooyoo stars. It's not just because of Ryan Gosling but walsha11 also likes the story, so do check it out yourself. I love this pushchair! is the review by member Bunnyhop2 that gets her onto our list of Celebrated dooyooers this Week.

News Flash: dooyoo’s Brand Spanking New Facebook Competition Page
07/08/2012 - (03:50 PM)
Last week we launched our Facebook competitions page and the inaugural competition is already underway. It’s nice and easy to take part, and the winners will get a special dooyoo delivery sent to their doorstep! Click on the trophy at the top of our Facebook page to find out more.
dooyooCommunity TeaBreak: PerfectPeaches
07/08/2012 - (10:06 AM)
Today we’re having a quick chat with dooyooCommunity member PerfectPeaches. She is one of the winners of our Monthly Competition this month and today she is sharing some of the equestrian knowledge with us – perfect timing considering we just picked up two medals in the sport! To see all the winners, check out the Monthly Competition page. For now though, pull up a chair, pour yourself a cuppa and enjoy.
dooyooTeam: Welcome PerfectPeaches! To begin with, what brought you to dooyoo?
PerfectPeaches: The idea of making a little extra money as well as voicing my opinions was really appealing.
dooyooTeam: We’ve noticed that you’ve shared your opinions and thoughts about a lot of horse riding and general equestrian sports, is that your favorite category to write in?
PerfectPeaches: Yes, it is. I have been riding for over 22 years so horses are big part of my life. Although I do try to vary my reviews!
dooyooTeam: So you must be a pro at equestrian sports! We were proud to see Team GB picking up a Silver Medal in Team Eventing this year, which is an equestrian event, are you following the London Olympics?
PerfectPeaches: I am. I have always enjoyed watching the Olympics and especially being on home turf makes it feel a little more special this year.
dooyooTeam: We are excited that Olympics are in London too. What would you say is a good place to start for a newcomer to equestrian sports at the Olympics this year?
PerfectPeaches: I find all the equestrian disciplines thoroughly enjoyable to watch. For someone new to the equestrian world I would probably recommend showjumping as it is fast paced, happens in one arena and it is actually quite amazing to watch horses fly over the jumps with such accuracy – of course the riders are equally as impressive!
dooyooTeam: We’re sure some newcomers to equestrian sports from the dooyooCommunity will be following your recommendation closely - we will be, too! Which do you think was your best review on dooyoo?
PerfectPeaches: Probably my best review to date is the review on the Thorowgood T8 Dressage Saddle. It was an extensive review which hopefully was/is incredibly helpful.
dooyooTeam: That review definitely deserved to pick up a Crown! What is it that you love most about dooyoo?
PerfectPeaches: The community atmosphere – I have been on here over two years and you get to know people which is really quite nice.
dooyooTeam: The community is what we love about dooyoo too! What will you do with your next dooyooMiles rewards?
PerfectPeaches: I save all my dooyooMiles so they will be going into my bank account – incredibly boring but trying to be sensible!
dooyooTeam: Very sensible indeed! And what will you be reviewing next?
PerfectPeaches: Excitingly I will be reviewing thermal underwear!
dooyooTeam: Hahah, that’s great! Thank you for taking the time to catch up with us! Hope you have a wonderful Olympics and we look forward to seeing you around.
dooyooGames 2012: Synchronised Swimming Winners
06/08/2012 - (03:03 PM)
We’ve been working hard to find just three winning entries for the Synchronised Swimming; the response to our competition has been fantastic! So many creative entries and such great reviews. You should be so pleased that you did not have to do our job and make this tough cut.
Nonetheless we’ve narrowed it down and have our three winners. Taking away the first prize of 2,000 dooyooMiles is rhyming reviewer Kat1234. A clear, simple and thorough review called Rather Roarsome, which not only informs it also entertains, we really like it. Zooming his way smoothly into second place is GodfatherOfSoul with a review that is bound to impress. He chose one of the more difficult letters in the alphabet to synchronise, and picks up 1,500dMs for his review, Z is for Zombie! Our final winner is member Doglover with her review of the Jasper Conran at Tripp Hydrangea Business Shopper. All the lines in her review start with a ‘B’ but we give this review a big fat ‘A’ and 1,000dMs!
Congratulations winners and a big thank you to all the members who sent their entries! They were so much fun to read, bet they were fun to write too! If you’ve not already seen it, we have another fun competition on our Facebook Competitions Page, so do head over to dooyoo UK Facebook on Facebook and check it out.

dooyooGames 2012: Synchronised Swimming and Triathlon
03/08/2012 - (02:22 PM)
So you think you’ve got what it takes to be a dooyooGames champion do you?! Starting today we’re kicking off the final two events in the dooyooGames; Synchronised Swimming and the Triathlon.
Since we know you’re all such talented writers, on Day 8 we’re throwing a bit of a spanner in the works to increase the difficulty level! Sychronised Swimming is all about moving in unison with beauty and poise. Some of you may have already guessed where we’re heading with this one…
Synchronsied Swimming: Start each sentence of your review with the same letter - it doesn’t matter which letter, but it must be the same!
Some Rules: Simplicity is the key in this event, it can be in any category at all, just ensure it is over 250 words, and that it is still useful to consumers. Send us a dooyooMail or email with your entry, no later than 9am Monday the 6th of August, and we’ll choose the top three to pickup the dMs prizes. Should you be one of the winners, you’ll get either 2,000dMs, 1,500dMs, or 1,000dMs, depending on whether you come first, second or third.
Some entrants may be tempted to use the same word for the start of each sentence, but in order to impress the judges, we suggest mixing it up. Simon and Hal are very much looking forward to these entries!
Time to move onto the Triathlon…
Triathlon: This is where individual dooyooers can really strut their stuff and show off their review writing skills in three different disciplines.
The Rules: To enter, one member writes three first reviews over 500 words, in three different categories – one of the reviews must be of a Level 1 product, but the rest can be from any other Level. This event finishes 9am Friday the 10th of August, so please email us with your entries by then. The top three triathletes will be awarded 5,000dMs, 2,500dMs and 1,500dMs!
Those dates again: The Triathlon wraps up 9am Friday the 10th of August and Synchronised Swimming ends 9am Monday the 6th. The dooyooGames timetable below tells you which events finish when, so be sure to keep an eye on that.
Till next time, dooyooers!

dooyooGames 2012: Sprint winners
31/07/2012 - (01:54 PM)
The dooyooGames 2012 have begun and boy what a start we’ve had! The Sprint entries started pouring in a few hours after the dooyooGames were open. We think the excitement was a bit too much.
We’ve had some fantastic entries for the Sprint and have had to make a very tough cut to find our three winners. The gold medal is snatched up by jasminetea for her Express Review about the Logitech HD Webcam C270, and she gets 1,500dMs for her efforts. Taking silver and waving the flag high is azana with her review about Maroo Moko II Leather Folio Case for iPad; azana gets a bonus 1,000dMs for her entry. Finally, picking up the bonus 500dMs and the bronze medal is MagdaDH for her very interesting review about the Celestron 76mm Firstscope.
The Olympics are all about making history and setting new records. Similarly are the dooyooGames; for the first time ever, we’re awarding a Crown to the gold medal winning Express Review, which makes jasminetea one very happy dooyooer today! That brings a wrap to the first dooyooGames 2012 event, but don’t forget the 1000 Metres and Relay still carries on, so get your entries in dooyooers…
dooyooGames Relay: You and your team could win 20,000dMs!
30/07/2012 - (05:38 PM)
We're starting another event today. It's a real crowd pleaser that will run until the very end of the dooyooGames, and it comes with the biggest dMs rewards of the whole dooyooGames - the Relay.
Relay: Organise yourself into a team of four dooyooers, pass the baton between yourselves by all writing one review each, and the best combined team wins. Talk to your friends, or contact a dooyooer out of the blue - it’s always nice to met new people and who knows, you may even find a new dooyoo buddy!
The Rules: Find a group of four, choose a team name, and between you submit four first reviews over 500 words. One should be in each of the following four categories: Books, Fashion & Beauty, Computers and Household Appliances. Entries have to be in by midnight Friday the 10th of August.
Let’s clarify that! One member writes a first review in Books, another writes a first review in Fashion & Beauty, another in Household Appliances, and the last in Computers (it doesn’t matter what order they’re written in). Put all the links into one dooyooMail or email, and send it to the dooyooTeam, along with your team name. For this event the gold medal winning team will pick up 20,000dMs to share between them, and, we’ll also send each member a dooyoo cap or t-shirt – that’s a pretty healthy prize!
Remember to ensure your reviews are the first of the product, over 500 words, and make sure it is a review that’s been written today or after. Please also only send one email with all the links to the reviews, and include your team name in the review – just so we know that you’ve agreed to take part.
With good teamwork and good communication you’re likely to do very well in this event!
-Hal & Simon
On your marks… Get set… Go!
27/07/2012 - (09:17 AM)
There’s a real sporting buzz and excitement in the air today. People are flocking to London to support their teams, and families are gathering around their TV’s to catch the action. We can feel the excitement here on dooyoo too and would like to officially welcome you to the dooyooGames 2012!
As we introduced earlier this week, we have five review writing competitions of varying lengths running over the next couple of weeks, and we have plenty of dooyooMiles to reward the top placed members in each event! The event schedule is a little further down this page, so be sure to check it out and see what’s coming up.
Starting today we have…
Sprints: A short, sharp event designed to find who can write the best review in less than 150 words!
The rules: Choose any product from a Level 1 or 2 category, write an Express Review (less than 150 words), and send us a dooyooMail or email with the link to your entry before 9am Monday the 30th of July.
This is not as easy as it sounds! Although they’ll be short, we’re still looking for reviews that will help consumers to make better purchasing decisions. We’ll assess the reviews and the medals will go to the best 3 reviews. 1,500dMs, 1,000dMs and 500dMs will be given to first, second and third place respectively. We’ll also award the gold medal winning review a Crown – make dooyoo history by becoming the first Express Review to ever earn a Crown!
1,000 Metres: A familiar event close to all dooyoo members’ hearts that we’re sure will be highly contested.
The rules: Write the first review of a product in any Level 1 category, make sure it’s over 1,000 words, and send us a dooyooMail or email with the link to your entry, that’s it! You have a few days longer for this event so plenty of time to put your best foot forward - these reviews need to be on our desk by 9am on Friday the 3rd of August.
We’ll choose the best 3 reviews to walk away with the glory and bonus dMs. First in the 1,000m will get 2,000dMs, second 1,500dMs, and third 1,000dMs. All 3 winning reviews will also be awarded a well deserved Crown.
In all events the judges will be looking for clear reviews that stay on track and keep the product as the focus of the review. You’re more than welcome to participate as many times as you wish in each event – however all reviews must have been posted after the event has officially begun, and one review shouldn’t be used for more than one event. To recap those dates: The Sprints start today and all entries must be in by 9am Monday the 30th of July. The 1,000 Metres also starts today, and all entries must be in by 9am Friday the 3rd of August.
Good luck everyone, and may the best dooyooers win!
-Hal & Simon

Her review is beautifully written, easy to follow and contains useful information without giving out the whole plot of the book. We like it!

25/07/2012 - (04:32 PM)
Friday marks the beginning of dooyooGames 2012; a series of punishing competitions designed to push your reviewing skills to the limit, and to find out who are the ultimate dooyoo champions!
Actually, the competitions won’t be punishing at all, they’ll be a little challenging, fun and easy to participate in! If you place first, second or third, you’ll earn not only bragging rights, but you’ll also pick up a healthy dMs bonus for your efforts. Drag out those sweatbands and purple leg-warmers, and start doing jazzercise for your typing fingers, because soon we’ll be starting the 1000 Metres, Sprints, Synchronized Swimming, Triathlon and Relay. You'll get a full breakdown of the first two events (1000 Metres and Sprints) on Friday. So what do you think, are you cut out for it!?
You can take part in as many different events as you'd like and below is the official schedule, use this to see what’s coming up. We’ll keep you updated along the way of course, but you’ll want to keep an eye on that so you know when your favourite events are starting and finishing. The winners will be announced here on the dooyooCommunity homepage, and make sure you’ve ‘Liked’ the dooyoo Facebook page too, because that’s where the winners will officially take to the podium to be showered in glory! We’ll also have some random give-aways over the next couple of weeks, so that’s another reason to make sure you’ve liked the page.

Crown of the Day!
23/07/2012 - (11:07 AM)
There are still two distinct camps in the Headphone world; those who like the big, over-the-ear headband style, and those who prefer the smaller and more portable in-ear type. Purists will always argue that to get the best sound quality you need the traditional over-the-ear style, but today’s Crown of the Day gives you plenty of good reasons consider another options. ILIKEMONEY has written a cracking little review of an in-ear set of headphones and proclaims that These are a Shure thing.
The Shure SE215’s are certainly not the cheapest of their kind on the market, but they have excellent sound quality and are very effective at cancelling out external noise. They also have a simple but cunning feature where you can change out the wire if it breaks at the point where it meets the headphone jack, meaning they’ll last you longer than your average pair.
Crown of the Day!
20/07/2012 - (01:01 PM)
McBeer is one of our Celebrated dooyooers of the Week. We read his latest review about the Apple iMac MC508B/A and are sure that we made the right choice! One reading of his review has totally sold us this beauty of a machine and made us new Apple addicts!
McBeer's easy to follow writing style is great for customers looking for information and there is tons of personal information too. My Apple Religion/Addiction! - Apple iMac comes as recommended reading for the weekend. Keep up the good work McBeer.
Crown of the Day: Mixin' it up

Our first Celebrated dooyooer of the Week today is abbiej1711, who informs us that she is in sunny Turkey as we speak! Very jealous. Before she left though she gave us a cracking review about the MyFitnessPal phone application, A good SMARTPHONE calorie diary for your pocket! Which as she explains works not just on iPhones! Next up is self-confessed fan of traditional fitness equipment, McBeer. He much prefers old fashioned workouts compared to today's workout machines, and has written a detailed review about the York Fitness Cast Iron Spinlock Barbell/Dumbell Set. Have a read of Lift like a pro! - York 90kg Barbell/Dumbells if you are feeling strong!
We’ve had a splendid tour around the Wormsley Cricket Ground in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, with dooyooer Mildew82. She has become our third Celebrated dooyooer of the Week for her Crowed review, A cricket ground that will bowl you over. Next on our list is member kevin121 for her review about Targus VuScape Cover & Stand for iPad 2. We like her review because it is detailed and contains information that a potential customer would find very useful, do check out A pretty good case. Open and shut.
To wrap things up for this week, we have member Mac83 who has caught our eye for a great review about the horror film, The Messengers. She doesn’t love the film but nor does she hate it. The review, Ghosts, crows and a farmhouse, is well balanced and a good read. Well, that’s it for this week folks. We’ll be back again next week with a fresh bunch of Celebrated dooyooers of the Week, so until then happy reviewing!
Celebrated dooyooers of the Week: New Guides!
11/07/2012 - (02:42 PM)
This week we thought we’d take the time to welcome and introduce the latest additions to the dooyooCommunity Guides team. Guides are experienced dooyoo members who help those of us here at dooyoo HQ to keep the site running ship-shape!
GodfatherOfSoul will be looking after the Audio / HiFi category. He likes to dabble in a lot of different categories, including Music and the aforementioned Audio / HiFi, so he’s going to be a great addition to the team. Another dooyooer who likes to write excellent reviews across the board is cha97mw, who will be assisting Meggysmum in the Health category. alyson29 will be helping to look after the Fashion & Beauty category; this is one of her favourite areas in which to review, and she has plenty of useful experience to put to good use there. The final new addition is Essexgirl2006. She’s done a lot of traveling and penned many great reviews on the subject, meaning she’ll be right at home in the Travel category.
They’re not the only new Guides we’ve appointed this year though; in April GentleGenius came on board to help out in Film, broxi3781 is keeping an eye on the Shopping category, and Wee_Jackie_163 joined the team as the cool cat looking after Pets!
They’re all very approachable, so if you’ve got a question about dooyoo that you can’t find an answer to in the Help Pages, they will be more than happy to hear from you. If you’re wondering what it takes to become a Guide, check out this Help Page topic for more information.
10/07/2012 - (01:51 PM)
dooyoo has joined the wonderful world that is Google+!
Google+ is the latest social network to hit the interwebs and all dooyooers using it should be sure to add us to your circles and we'll add you back. You’ll be kept up-to-date with the latest dooyoo news, announcements, and exclusive G+ competitions ...as well as the occasional cheesy music video.
If you're not using it yet, you may want to try it out. It's especially easy for people who already have a Gmail email account, or those who use any of Google's other services. It's becoming more and more popular everyday, so much so that US President Barack Obama was interviewed live on the official White House Google+ page earlier this year.
It's clearly the virtual place to be - see you there!
Level Changes: July
09/07/2012 - (04:49 PM)
Today we’ve moved around some categories to align with current consumer shopping trends. No dilly-dallying, let’s jump straight in!
We’ve moved up a big chunk of Fashion & Beauty categories. Shoes, Watches and Handbags will all move up into Level 1. Body Care / Skin Care, Hair Care, and Perfume / Fragrance, will also move up into Level 1, but just for a short stint, we’ll move them back down into Level 2 this time next week. Antiperspirant / Deodorant, and Fashion are moving up, but into Level 2. Moving down on the Fashion & Beauty side of things; Hair Straighteners, Epilators / Lady Shavers, and Sunglasses. In the Sports category; Sports Clothing, Fitness, Sports Shoes, and Ball Sports all move down into Level 2. Biography and Ladder will also join them in Level 2.
Baby Toy, Nursing, Baby Health, Health Product and Health Treatment will all move into Level 1 for a burst, as will Cat Accessory, Dog Accessory, and Laptop Case. That just leaves Xbox Games, Playstation Vita Games, and Theme Park / Zoo National, which will all move back down into Level 3.
There are a lot of changes, which means there’s a lot of scope! Please ensure that all your reviews exceed our minimum requirements, and that you own the products you’re reviewing. If you’re not familiar with our Site Rules yet, please take a look. If you have any questions regarding them it would be worthwhile taking the time to have a chat to one of our dooyooCommunity Guides or with the dooyooTeam.
Happy reviewing dooyooers!
Crown of the Day!

Yet another fantastic review has landed on our desks this Friday morning.
ladyofcampfires has written a cracking review of the Beats by Dr Dre - Ibeats. Her review not only covers all the vital points like sound quality, comfort and usability but also includes recommendations for use. All of this information coupled with a really clear writing style make this review absolutely valuable to shoppers. We love it . You too should check out Beats by Dr Dre - Ibeats in-ear earphones.
