The Blacklist- Terms/Conditions

After (unfortunately) seeing the need for this as discussed in a separate thread, thought it might be beneficial for AM to have a thread such as this to separate those looking for free product and running and those legitmate members that will follow through with logs/reviews etc…Hopefully this thread isn’t used all that much… below is a cut n paste of a Blacklist 'template' (oringinally posted by jkeithc82) elsewhere…thought it'd be good to start with it...


Purpose of the BLACKLIST: to provide a reference source to company representatives in order to help weed out known unreliable product reviewers. This benefits the companies offering their products for review by listing known waters and benefits general members by eliminating wasters from applicant pools. Accepting a free product in exchange for a review and not following up with your end of the deal is essentially theft.

This is applicable to sponsored reviews only. If you purchase a product yourself you are exempt.


Guidelines for the BLACKLIST:
1) Only representatives from the company supplying the product may nominate someone for blacklisting. Hopefully this will remove any potential ‘backstabbing’ between members. There needent be a bandwagon effect between members ganging up on certain unpopular members. If companies can’t track their reviews properly that’s all on them.

Initially, candidates will only be applicable for blacklisting from any ones company’s most recent group of product reviewers. Blacklisting is not retroactive of past log failures, rather begins from this point forward. Those currently in the process of logging sponsored supplements are exempt from Blacklist standards, however not exempt from the company's log standards.

2) The rep has to clearly state the basic prerequisites for the candidates (number of updates per week, progress pictures, relevant information to be tracked and updated regularly etc). By posting an application to review a product the candidate accepts these terms. Reps cannot deviate from these prerequisites unless a formal public posting has been accepted by all testing parties as well as given moderator approval.

3) Only a moderator ultimately determines whether someone will be put on the blacklist.

4) A lukewarm or negative review on any product is NOT a candidate for blacklisting unless it violates other guidelines. Should reviewing parties comply with the standards set forth by the rep prior to testing, nomination for Blacklisting will be ignored.

5) At least one verifiable attempt must have been made to rectify an iffy log by the company via email or PM as well as several public posting attempts within the log itself. Bumping a thread is (unfortunately) not enough. Upon nomination of blacklisting if a Moderator wishes to also contact the reviewer prior to blacklisting that is their case-by-case decision.

6) If unforseen circumstances arrise it is up to the reviewer to contact the company, not the other way around. Such circumstances will also need to be addressed with myself or another moderator if the Blacklist discussion is underway. Unforseen circumstances include those that would render the reviewer physically unable to continue his/her log (ie. extreme sickness, injury, etc.).

7) The reviewer is NOT above COMMON SENSE. Certain things are implicit and not everything needs to be outlined every single time.


BLACKLISTING:
8) In order to be placed on the blacklist a rep must determine suitability via guidelines 1)-6) and then post the screen name of the candidate, a link to the review in question and infringements. Prior to public posting of a potential Blacklist member, reps should alert me prior by sending a pm. Blacklisted members are subject to a minimum 3 day ban from the boards which will begin immediately after he/she is Blacklisted.​


REDEMPTION:
9) If a blacklistee wishes to be removed from the blacklist they can:

-
- carry out at least three complete logs to a high standard with products they have purchased themselves. Realize that attempting to redeem yourself from the Blacklist means your next logs will be possibly judged more strictly and will depend on the product selection (logging a B-Complex is not acceptable for example).​


As always… Moderator’s decisions are final.

Thoughts?

Perhaps a MOD can create a Sub forum to toss this thread in within the promo section (like how the Sup Auction is seperated out?)

I love this idea, schizm. Some of the reps and sponsors don't have the opportunity to hang out as much on here as others, so it's easy for guys to step in and apply for promos, win them, and never follow up.

Hopefully this list will be very small, but it indeed serves a purpose.

I stuck it.

You may need to consider how you want to moderate this thread.

I can lock it and update it. I can't promise I will be able to update in real time.

Updates can be added when an authorized rep submits new names. My recommendation is that there be one point of contact, namely you, who can submit updates that you get from other sponsor reps. You can PM me on a scheduled interval with names and I can add them to the list.

Takes some time to think about the details - usernames, sponsor, products, offense or failure to deliver, other usernames and or boards active on, etc. etc.

Thanks for making it stick, DD!

Seems like the simplest way to go about it, would for a form to be filled out (next post)...which could then either be pm'd to myself (to send on to you, say 2x's/month) or to you directly (or even posted in the thread(?) as I'm sure unless the member just vanishes, there will be some amount of rebuttal)....I just don't want to set myself up as 'the judge', in any way/shape/form....

Sadly, this could be needed. Although, it could be good so that some of the new loggers/reviewers and get in on some of it too. Kind of clear house on the people just looking for free goods rather than those who are really looking to help/provide unbiased and constructive feedback.

It's disappointing that it has to come to this! Most of the AM family are very stand-up guys & gals who take the PRIVILEGE to be a chosen logger seriously. I have seen too many people win product and then cut and run. This is not "FREE" product, it comes with a responsibility. With the introduction of this "BLACKLIST", hopefully it will dissuade anymore cut & run.

Definitely needed here as I've already experienced some people winning logs from some of my promos and then (even after multiple PM's) ignore me and continue to apply for other company promos. That's stealing. When you are provided a product for a service you are required to abide by that agreement. It doesn't mean you have to lie and give a positive review if it sucked, but you still need to live up to the agreed obligation. Another one I ran into is where the member disappeared off the forums for a couple months and then came back on and again ignored my pm's and applied for other company logs. That's shady. If something unexpected comes up, have the decency to tell the company rep involved and offer to send it back. Most companies understand things can happen and will work with you.

Great idea! Maybe I will get picked for stuff now. I Think people should look out for those who log multiple products at once. Very rarely do people log solo runs...always a laundry list of supps. Not fare to the final review and those interested imo.

I agree in a way, and when I set up my log contest I was going to tell ppl not to run con current logs but I realized two things...

1) we can't see their every move, they will probably run 2 things or more than 1 even of they are not logging, not all but some wil.

2) a recovery nighttime drink won't interfere with some1 on cycle or, maybe using a pwo so it should skew anything.

3) most ppl r on more than 1 thing at 1 time... Something I wouldn't allow is let's say I have a, no need to stack 2 ph for a log ya know....

Yea that's true. It's strange that I have never 'stacked' anything and I seem to get much better results than many others also at the recommended dosages. There aren't to many logs that I take seriously. Many don't have the slightest clue what they are doing.

So can loggers blacklist companies too? You know, for not following through with product, not supporting the logger, etc?
I think so, we hold loggers to a certain standard, it's only fair.

That is a good call. Sad to see we need a list for either way here, but it is a good idea.

Seems like 3 months could earn you a blacklisted status in my book. What pisses me off the most is that someone has forgotten the little guys at his "home board" now that he has gone national. I'm embarrassed that I was such a promoter.

doing some investigating...

[video=youtube_share;LJfZaT8ncY k]http://youtu.be/LJfZaT8ncYk[/video]
DING DING DING DING!!! it is a close one however this is #1 for me,

send me your info and we will get some picamilon 50 out after the promo is over!
******* 1st person to post me a video of Jessica Simpson singing any christmas song will get a bottle of PEA xtreme!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

[video=youtube_share;SAgYgE5eibQ]http://youtu.be/SAgYgE5eibQ[/video]
you win!!!
send me your info and a bottle of SNS pea Xtreme will be yours in the near future! and this does not disqualify you from any grand prizes( or mini contests) since you have other entries AND may also post more from now till Jan 1st!
this SNS promo... all i can think of is winning something for my H drol cycle coming in february... i'm trying super hard to make bloodsimple happy but i am running out of ideas for videos. heh
well that is all you had to say! a bottle of SNS Liver Assist for you along with a bottle of picamilon50 for you to take in feb!!! I already have your info bro and thank you for all the entries so far!!!
posted on 1/6/11
please be patient all,I am getting all the pm's and will get back to you as well as get everything out in the next week or two.
posted on 2/5/11
it's been a month, bros... did anyone get anything?
anyone who won fair and square was sent and recieved already,I followed up and confirmed with everyone.
if you did not get anything it was because you were disqualified for applying to and WINNING MULTIPLE promos all at once,including multiple protein products,multiple pre workouts,etc...all while being expected to do honest and objective reviews.
it has come to my attention you were disqualified from other promos that you applied to after all these other promos. YOu also won another promo from us and still applied to this one.
(i believe this is steve..jb)If there is anyone that is owed product that didnt receive it, please let me know. I am not aware of the disqualifications nor do I keep track of them though, so if that is the case, then I cannot be of much assistance.
so this is the first post of the thread, and no where until the end did it specify any of these rules for disqaulification, and even in one post made by the op, it said he was not disqualified.
***** no fancy templates,colors,etc...christmas is all about giving plain and simple.
we want to give you some products and spread some christmas cheer.
there will be many chances to win from now till new year's day. There will be a few MAIN prizes at the end,HOWEVER I will be giving away a lot of goodies along the way(some bigger then others ;) -
infact there will be at least one gift given away each day from now till new years day!!!!!!!!!

>>>t>>>>>>>to enter you have to do one of two things....
1: post a youtube clip of a christmas movie(does not matter how short or long) OR
2: post a youtube clip of a christmas song ALONG with your new years resolution(if you have one,written underneath the clip)
I will pick random winners,some individual contests along the way,etc....for now let's see some videos and get some entries in!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

now, i dont think this dumbasss is a rep for sns anymore, (if he is, who ever it is, is a dumbasss) and dredging up this old info may get me into trouble, I dont care, I feel you should get the products that were awarded to you. now, keep in mind, I am low man on the totem pole, and the decision is not up to me, but this is posted for all to see, I hope my bosses shine through, even if it gets me kicked off the team.

yes, you did, and no, the blame doesnt lay on one person. it is a team of reps, not one. I was not a part of sns or cel at the time though. if i had been, i would of said something.

that's pretty amazing that you went through all those posts just to make one person happy... pretty awesome that you care about your customers this much, jbryand101b. i don't know what else to say but thank you for caring.
i didn't make a big deal about it when it happened to me... but i was pretty angry and it just reminded me about my anger when i read in this thread how we should hold companies accountable as well... i am over it and i don't blame SNS at all, i think you're all a bunch of great dudes and you don't have to do anything to make up for what he did to me.
