What this site is for

VeryHelpful.net is a collective for online review writers. By publishing together, we can accomplish more than we ever could alone. This is a community that values feedback and collaboration. We treat each other with respect and we work together toward the shared goal of a top-notch review site with a large scale audience.

Are there any rules?

Right now I’m supplying this site as a service to the community. I would ask for people to observe common sense and not post porn or “TESTING123” reviews. Be nice to the others here.

Right now this site is set up for reviews only. Please use the supplied review template so that our presentation is consistent. But other than that, it’s up to you. Write reviews of whatever you want! I expect to see all your usual humor, playfulness, erudition, and surplusage in full effect here!

What’s next?

I’m working on a site with a more full feature set customized for a community of online reviewers. WordPress gives us a temporary home where we can build content together, but the editing experience is not customized for reviews. You’ll notice a lot of problems here, like reviews of the same product not being grouped together, profile pages kinda sucking, and feedback being limited to just comments.

But it shows some of the things we’ve been lacking: things like the ability to use images and videos in our reviews, and a modern presentation that actually looks good. You can link off site (WHOA!) and even use your own Amazon associates ID to start earning right away.

Our new home will be ready soon and will offer a more custom review experience and more automation for things like product links. When the time comes we’ll move all content over so nothing you do here will be lost.

Please write and enjoy! Feel free to experiment. Just be warned that this site might change a lot. I whipped it together myself in 48 hours and we will probably want to fix or add things.

Let me know what you think!
