2018/ 11/ 04 12:00 PT EDIT: Based on discussion in this thread, some modifications to these expectations have been made. Since taking over the logistics of managing loaners, we've held about 30 to 40 loaners, many with more than one piece of gear. This gear gets to see a lot of our members and I'm usually pretty lenient on who I let in our loaners. From this, we should have far more impressions and discussions on loaners. And I'm as guilty as the rest of us when it comes to this. Going forward, I'm setting new expectations on loaners: You must participate in discussion on all loaner gear you receive. This doesn’t mean a full set of impressions or reviews, but you must be actively engaged in talking about the product. If you get a piece of gear that's in your "wheelhouse", you must post at least basic impressions on the product. DO NOT MAKE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO ANY LOANER UNIT!!! The unit is not yours to keep. Do your best to ensure that the unit's condition is the same from when you received it to when you sent it out. As an example, if someone like @shotgunshane or myself receives an IEM or DAP, I expect to see a set of impressions. That's it. I'll send out reminders to you if I see participation waning. Members with chronic issues may receive a three to six month time out from loaners.
