HOW TO BECOME A GEAR
TESTER IN THREE EASY STEPS
STEP 2, LESSON 3
SUBMITTING THE REVIEW
Now that you have created your owner's review, it's time
to submit your review for editing. This is an easy process that you
can complete one of two ways. You MUST have joined the
BackpackGearTest group on Yahoo!. If you haven't done so yet, click
here for instructions.
You can now post your review to
the BackpackGearTest group either by logging into Yahoo and sending a
message, or by sending an email to BackpackGearTest@yahoogroups.com.
Your review should be included as plain text in the message body, and not
as a file attachment.
SUBJECT of your message or email should be "OWNER REVIEW - (INSERT
NAME OF ITEM)" So, for our example item, the SUBJECT would be
"OWNER REVIEW - Mag Instruments Maglite Solitaire" If you
have any trouble with this step, click here for instructions on joining
the BGTFileUploadHelp group. Once a member of that group, post your
problem there. If you need individual support, someone will help you
through the entire process.

how you should change it. Please be patient, as the Moderators are
an all volunteer group and have private lives as well. It may take a
few days for your report to be checked. You will normally see a
message with your original subject and the word "EDIT"
(EDIT - OWNER REVIEW - Mag Instruments Maglite Solitaire). You will
then edit your review to reflect the suggested changes. You may have
to submit your edited review to the group a second time, or the Moderator
will tell you to make the suggested changes and upload your review to BackpackGearTest.org and indicate
the folder that was created for your review. If, after a few days,
you have not been contacted and the folder has not been created, please
send a gentle reminder to the list that you are waiting for a
response. Remember to be polite.
