STOP CRITICISING AND LET DOOYOO BE THE JUDGE!!
Member Name: pacinofan79
Well some of the more veteran members might not think I am qualified to write this piece as I am fairly new to the site myself but I think I found out quite quickly the main Do's and Don'ts of the site, mainly down to other members giving friendly advice (Thank You Paul Hanton my Dooyoo Mentor....lol, though you may not be happy with what I am about to write), and reading other members reviews and seeing what comments were written etc,etc.
I love writing reviews and feel I put a lot of effort into them and most importantly write what the consumer needs to know, some people may disagree and think my reviews are no good, but to be honest I couldn't really care less, if I am happy with them and I think they contain all the relevant information than that's enough for me.
I am just getting bored of members criticising other members and so called 'Churners'.
And what really annoys me is the people who moan about members just doing it for the money..........Please get real, we all do it because we like to get our little reward, there are thousands of sites where you can write reviews and not get rewarded so all those people are saying they don't do it for the money, go and write somewhere else or at least stop moaning at the people who do it for the money, they are perfectly entitled to do it, don't get me wrong, I like a lot of people love doing my reviews and the reward is an added bonus, but I carry on doing them on this particular site because of the added incentive. And if the members who say they don't do it for the money really don't then why are they moaning anyway, I'll tell you why because they begrudge the members who write 150 words and get the same miles as they do, which in turn means they do care about the money. And for all we know some of these people could be seriously struggling financially and trying to make a quick buck, what's wrong with that, if the system let's them do that then fine, it's not hurting me.
And when other members have written pieces on their pet peeves of Dooyoo I have in the past agreed when it comes down to churners etc. But I have to say, I have recently had a change of heart. That is not to say I like it when members churn out 9 or 10 reviews in a row, but who are we to criticize, if someone can show me the Dooyoo rule book that say's you can only do so many reviews at a time then I stand corrected but can we really blame the members doing this, I mean let's face it there are always going to be people who want maximum reward for as little effort as possible, and we can't really criticize 'them', it's the system that let's them do it, if it is such a problem than why don't Dooyoo make 300 words the minimum and that each member is limited to 5 reviews a day.
And again I understand the frustration when a member has been rated 500 times and only rated 20 people back, but instead of moaning about it, check their stats and if they don't rate people back then quite simply don't rate them.
I guess what I am saying is that I just get bored of members constantly moaning about the so called Dooyoo abuse, I know it's frustrating when you write a review and within 5 minutes it's at the bottom of, or gone from the 1st page of the new reviews list, but if you are like me then I know the members who write good reviews and will look until I find them. But until Dooyoo do something about this then they obviously find it acceptable so there is no point whining about it, everyone is entitled to write what and how they want and if you don't like it then simply don't rate it, or even better make a stance by rating it not useful, the amount of times the very people who moan about Dooyoo abuse are rating rubbish reviews as Useful, WHY? , rate it as Not Useful and if you get revenge rated then report it to Dooyoo and they will remove the rating, I am sure that if we all rated a bit more honestly then certain members who get constantly rated Not Useful would get a ticking off by Dooyoo, as let's face it Not Useful reviews are no good to Dooyoo.
But please, just because someone has been a member for X amount of years does not give them the write to criticize new members who aren't officially breaking the rules, criticize the system that let's them do it and let Dooyoo be the judge . And I am not saying this because I am one of the members who do so called 'Churning', I do a 1 review every few days but I just think life is too short to be worrying what other people write and the reasons they write it.
Well that's my piece said, sorry if I have offended any veteran members, but I am entitled to my opinion and isn't that what this site is all about!......or perhaps I am wrong.
