    Fragrantica's setup is so much nicer and user friendly fragrance website. Not to mention it's 10 times faster. I'll use Basenotes as a forum which is all it's good for.

    I do think it's a big shame if the problem submitting reviews is putting off enthusiastic forum members. It really should be sorted out pronto.

    Regrading the membership fee - it does seem high compared to the various music forums I also contribute to. Simply paying a fee just to avoid frustration is not a sufficient incentive for contributers and reviewers, in my opinion.

    No way! Paying to post in real-time a review of a perfume that I bought? No Way!

If he would cut the fee of being a basenote plus member by 2/3rd's a lot more people would join. What he's charging now is ridiculous considering what is being offered for the price. BTW I've had my reviews setting for over 2 months now and I'm not bothering anymore as I'll just go into the forums and ask for opinions. Problem solved.
    I agree. I did consider membership but it didn't look like much at all for the money. There wasn't a big enough carrot.

    it's a long story! I had quite an argumentwith a few basenoters on this issue. It's getting frustrating.

    it takes ages! And anytime you edit a previous review it desappears for monthes (unless you're a premium member). It's not confortating at all.

    I switched to fragrantica, the only reason i still have a profile on here is because the owner or something thought it'd make me stay if he just posted all of mine. Seems like the only real way to get anything done around here on this shitty site.

    Grant; can you tell if the attack came from Sweden - or did they use an anonymizer?

    I thought you should know this....Yesterday I spent all day on Basenotes , I am having a large sale and was recieving lots of mail .
    at around 4pm , while logged into Basenotes my computer was attacked by a malware trojan called Vista Home Security 2011 . BAD ONE !! I was able to do a system restore .
    Not blaming you per se , but because of the hack wanted to give you a heads up in case this was attatched to the damage done on Basenotes .
    Sincerely , Carol
