The title says it all. The search bar didn't yield an answer and I couldn't find it myself.

So yeah, what's the process to start a new entry?

Click on community, product reviews, then search your product you want to review

I figured it out myself. 

 

For anyone who's also wondering how to do this: 

 

1. Go to Product Reviews section

2. Enter a product name that is not in Acne.org's database 

3. Once it shows that there's 0 results, you'll be able to click on a button to "Add a New Item to Our Database"

 

 

Click on community, product reviews, then search your product you want to review

That one's simple. I know how to do that. What I meant was to actually start a new page for a product entry that doesn't yet exist in their database.

Yeah, that's how it works. If you search and it doesn't come up, that's the only time the "add new item" button comes up.

 

Do you think that's best? I looked around at other reviews sites and this seemed to be how it's done, but I agree that it can seem frustrating. If you know of another reviews database somewhere that does this better, please give me a link and I'll improve this.

In my opinion a more straightforward way to organize it would be like this: 

 

Search for a product >>> Good chances you'll find what you're looking for >>> If you get hits, but none are exactly what you're looking for, then display an "Add New Product" button (Instead of the mandatory "0 Results Found," before it's displayed -- although have it on that page as well).

I don't quite understand. Do you mean for instance, on this page where I searched for "Neutrogena" and I got a bunch of results, but I realize there is no result for the exact item I'm looking for, to have an Add This Item button on this page as well?

OK, this has been implemented. Thanks for the suggestion.

 

You can see an example of this new button here:  http://www.acne.org/...name=neutrogena
