Requests for assistance
« on: August 02, 2014, 12:25:41 PM »
Hi all, I thought I'd set up this thread as a place for me to ask members for favours/assistance.

For example, I noticed the review of the Papo Spinosaurus has only a single photograph: http://dinotoyblog.com/2009/05/23/spinosaurus-papo-2/ Do any of you kind members have good quality pictures of this figure that you woudn't mind donating to bulk out the review?

On a seperate note, I will put myself forward as willing to edit reviews that require any grammatical, or word review to help cut the work load for you . I have had work that I have written published in my local mineral society newsletters, both regionally and nationally and have been nationally awarded so I know my way around the writing thing enough to offer that service. I know at one time there were reviews you could not get to because they all needed reviewed for errors like that.

Kind of you to offer, I'd really appreciate that! Takama has submitted several reviews that I just haven't had time to edit, but if Takama sends his reviews to you for screening before submitting them to me, I'm keen to post them. Perhaps the two of you could work something out?

so yes, I am glad to edit and review any review that needs edited and look for grammatical, or typographical errors and this sort of thing. I accept no responsibility for actual content or the facts presented themselves, those are all on the reviewer. I can also look through any reviews done by those with a less than complete understanding of the english language and if I can understand them, I can translate as much as possible to help, for anyone with that problem. At the end of the day, I wish to verify I am just an editer and not the author and the opinions stated are not yada yada yada .....you know the drill.
Takama I would be honored to review your reviews and offer what help I can, You are always welcome to message and get my email so you can forward them to me for said reason. I will do my best and then kick them forward to Adam for final review.
  Adam I will do my best with anything I am given. In the end if I make a mistake or ten feel free to fix them however. That said I believe I can get them ready for posting for you.

No problem, if there's any photos you need for a specific figure feel free to ask if I Have it. (if I do, I would gladly take them)

Thanks. I have been looking for a Editor. I'm glad you can help.   I do try to do my best writing before hand, but in the end, I might still need help

I'd like to update the photos in the old dinotoyblog Battat T. rex review by Tomhet: http://dinotoyblog.com/2007/12/10/tyrannosaurus-rex-battat-boston-museum-of-science-collection/

Can anyone help?

If someone who has all the different versions as well could provide a comparison shot of them all as well, that would be even better, and make a great addition to the blog post.

Hello Dr. Admin
I just caught this. I have all three versions, so I could take some shots for you. What size format do you want. You want one of each and a comparison, any other shots? I just have to wade through about 100 other dinos on the shelf to get at them.

I'm not planning to get any of the Jurassic World figures (maybe one exception) but I'd really like to host reviews of them on the dinotoyblog. If anyone owns any of the figures and would like to submit a review, please send them on! :) Even the Indominus rex, which might make for an interesting topic for discussion, since some might argue that it doesn't deserve a review on a blog about dinosaur toys ;)

I like the thought of an Indominus rex toy figure review. It´s totally unique - a figure of a hypothetic dinosaur in a real movie. But isn´t any dinosaur hypothetic in a way? This is where the fun begins ;)

I guess I can do my indominous review.    Though it will be a little rough on the edges if that's fine.

Sure, maybe send it to Amargasaurus first as usual :)
