Hello Reinoud de Lange,
I hope this detail of information helps you....
What we’re looking for
We want you to post as comprehensive review of the product as possible; please tell us about how useful you found…
I am working with shipping at the moment; I'm aware of the RoadTest for which you were approved and I should have an update for you soon.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I have noted that the selection is not random and I think this is a good step.
I still think that the criteria for applying should elimanate those who have not shown they have contributed to the community, which my encourage others to apply.
I also like the Flora posting regarding who applied and their proposal.
BTW it took a lot of searching to find this, and is not linked from the challenge page.
You are correct in that some only want free stuff, while others do the sensible thing and select the items they apply for.
The arrival timeframe can make a huge difference ... mine took a lot longer than expected and I had to juggle some other stuff which limited the amount of time available.
Is there a way that the local E14 store can supply and the applicant use a voucher code.
This means the shipment is tracked, usually delivered in a few days, and traceable.
For what its worth I thought your review was excellent.
It shamed some others ....
Since it was my first roadtest, and I was lucky to be selected, I would like to know if my review fits to what you expected to read as a review...
I agree that the guidelines are a bit vague, although if it is too strict then it might eliminate all the fun of testing...
My guess that lot of people just want free stuff, and even if they write reasonable roadtest "justification" they don't really need it or they change mind
I try to apply only things i will use, as example i don't like PIC, arduino, and other roadtest related with boars expantion and so on , but i will go for Beaglebone, maybe processors with high power and i/o, measurement equipment, is what i use day by day, i understand, and can write about it
Also shipping is problem, like i was confirmed for MSO2024B roadtest, more than 30 day pass, and no information, nothing . And that some times can kill enthusiasm or simply you finally get to work on some project, and you just need to write review as quick as possible to fulfill readtest agreement, and go back to your work
Thanks for your feedback.
I've already revised the criteria: I have noted that some RoadTesters beleive the selection process is random. This is not the process I've instituted since starting on this - I read every entry, and am looking intently at the quality of these applications. I am also going to be communicating more regularly with those selected to ensure that if any problems occur, that these are spotted early.
As ever, feedback is very welcome as we continue to transform and grow the RoadTest programme.
Best Regards, Christian
Given that 50 kits were handed out for review, and there are ony 20 reviews, is it time to reconsider the criteria for being a RoadTester.?
4 of the 20 reviewers are zero (ie new) and one of these reviews had little content at all. http://www.element14.com/community/roadTestReviews/1450
Perhaps it would be fairer to other E14 members if the criteria for being eligible was raised a little.
Hi Element14`s friends! I hope to complete my review about PiFace for this weekend.
I had al lot of work and lost time to play with the PiFace.
I hope to finish the review asap.
