Say It Your Way

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Opinionated people welcome! Your ratings and reviews determine the Top Ten restaurants featured in the Ultimate Guide, our online database of vegan and vegetarian foods in the San Francisco Bay Area. Your review is also a great way to support your favorite veg restaurants that make our Bay Area such a wonderful place to live and eat veg.

So help us support them by taking two minutes to share your two cents. You need a userid on the bayareaveg.org website. This userid is distinct and separate from any other userids that you may have on Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. It can reuse or be the same name as one of your userid on another site if you like.

Once you have a userid, just start reviewing all your favorite veg restaurants and businesses. It’s that simple. So what are you waiting for?

1. Register for a Userid – and be sure to add a profile graphic!
2. Find the restaurant you want to review in the Ultimate Guide
3. In the listing for each business, there is a button called “review”. Select that. The next screen may ask you to log in. (This is also where you’ll have the opportunity to select the link “I forgot my password” to re-establish your ability to login)
4. Type your review, and that’s it!
