If I am an advertiser, a PSP Perks Provider, or listed in the Park Slope Parents, can I say my business is endorsed or recommended by Park Slope Parents?

No. Park Slope Parents does not offer endorsements per se. You can say you are recommended ON Park Slope Parents though and link to your reviews.

 

My business received a review on the Yahoo! Group, but I don't see it on the main list.

Park Slope Parents has a dedicated moderator who adds reviews from the Yahoo! group manually. This process can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. If you have not seen your review after 4 weeks of your recommendation appearing on the Yahoo! group, please email . Alternatively, members can send in their reviews following THESE instructions.

 

Can my business contact PSP Members?

Commercial businesses *are* allowed to reply to a post *individually* (as in "hi, I saw you are looking for a plumber and I am a plumber"), but are *not* allowed to "troll" the list for names of people to spam.

We consider it "abuse" and not in the spirit of the Park Slope Parents community when a business purposefully and repeatedly responds to messages from parents looking for a service in a manner that makes our members uncomfortable, results in complaints, or refuses to desist when so requested by the moderators.

 

My business received a Negative Review in the Park Slope Parents Recommendations section. Now what?

Please read Park Slope Parents Negative Review Policy HERE about next steps.

Park Slope Parents knows how hard it is to get negative feedback when you work so hard.  ESPECIALLY when people may not understand what it takes to run a business.  Our members give feedback and we provide this as a service. Unlike sites like YELP, though, we don't pick and choose which reviews to put up and take down. We add them all. So if you have a happy PSP member who wants to write a positive review it will be the latest review on the site and knock the "prominent" one to the second spot.
