Raffle Update ... Raffle to end.

This is an important $200 Tuesdays update.

It is with much regret that we must announce the end to the $200 Tuesday weekly raffle. The final drawing will be 28-May-2013. After that, there will be no further raffle drawings for the foreseeable future.

It will not come as a surprise to anyone that, like many industries, the online porn industry has taken a hit during these hard economic times. Over the last few years, our operating costs have continued to climb dramatically and revenues have simply not kept up. For this reason, we're having to take a hard look at all of our expenses if we are to continue to operate. We're making cuts to a number of areas of our operation but the one that will be the most noticeable to our users is that we can no longer hold the weekly raffle.

Over the last six years we've given away over 63 thousand dollars (over $64,000 at the time of the last raffle) and we were happy to do it. We believe it was unique in the industry but to us, it was a tangible demonstration of our appreciation for users' submissions. Though we continue to appreciate your participation, we are no longer able to reward that with a weekly drawing.

Over the years, a number of our users have expressed that, while the prizes were nice, they were not the main reason for your participation. Rather, there was a genuine interest in sharing the info, both good and bad, that you found for the pay sites you joined which allows you to get better value for the money you spend on porn. We hope that you will continue to see that as a good reason to participate here.

As always, thank you for your ongoing support of PornUsers.

A new era starts today at TheBestPorn.com!

See the new reviews at our homepage:
http://www.thebestporn.com/home.html

We're proud to announce a new kind of review at TheBestPorn.com, we simply call it version 2.0! These are complete very detailed reviews by one of our expert reviewers (each going on 6 years with us).

Read more about review 2.0:

-No more wimpy express reviews, no more patchy follow-up reviews. When a review needs an update, a different editor will write a fresh brand new one!

-More pros/cons, new site grades, new site details list (like an extension of our site facts). Only the details you need, no fluff!!

-More reviews released per year than ever! Top sites (85 and above) will be re-reviewed at least once per year.

-Nominate sites you want to see reviewed. The more nominations the site gets, the better chances it'll get reviewed sooner.

-Old reviews will stay in our system until the new review format replaces them.

It'll take some time for the new reviews to make the big impact, but the process is in motion! We hope you enjoy the changes we've made.

This is an important $200 Tuesdays update.

In an effort to better support our international users, we have now added two new payment methods to the $200 Tuesday raffle. Effective immediately, user can choose to receive their prize in the form of a gift certificate from Amazon.ca (for users in Canada) or Amazon.co.uk (for those in the UK and Europe) in addition to the regular three choices available. For full info on each available option, see the "Payment Options" section of the Raffle Info page.

If you're already signed up to our raffle, you can change your payment method anytime at your edit profile page. Be sure to read all the options and select the one that's best for you. We're sure you'll want to have the right selection made before the next raffle drawing.

If you haven't signed up yet, why not do it today? To signup to our $200 Tuesdays raffle, you can register or pre-register here.

We feel that these additions will make it much easier for those in Canada, the UK and Europe to claim their prizes.

As always, thank you for your ongoing support of PornUsers.com

Raffle Update... New payment option!

This is an important $200 Tuesdays update.

E-GOLD has recently become unusable for us and many users since the most recent changes resulting from the recent requirements to comply with U.S. law and regulations as a Money Services Business. As a result, we're not able to send money and many users are not able to accept money.

Therefore, as of today, we will no longer be using E-GOLD as a raffle payment method. A separate e-mail was sent to all users who are currently have E-GOLD selected.

The GOOD NEWS is that we've added GiftCertificates.com as an official payment method as of TODAY! Winners will receive a Super Certificate, which allows them to exchange the credits for an actual e-gift card or physical gift card from any of the 200+ merchants available. Some of these merchants should be internationally friendly as well. Be sure to check the list of merchants prior to selecting this option.

To signup to our $200 Tuesdays raffle, you can register or pre-register here.

If you're already signed up to our raffle, you can change your payment method anytime at your edit profile page.

Due to the issues we've had with virtual cash operators (E-GOLD and Moneybookers), we will most likely limit our raffle prizes to gift certificates from here on out. Amazon and eBay have been very successful and continue to be the most popular choices.

Thanks for everyone's participation and support!
Updated Reviews Are Now Encouraged

Posted by Khan

August 29th, 2008 - Replies (0)
In our continuing effort to provide current and up-to-date information on adult pay sites, and in response to many requests from our users, we've made some changes in the way Users may update Reviews they've posted. Bellow is a summary of the changes:

1. Reviews can now be edited for up to 6 months. Users can specify when an edit is major or minor change to their earlier remarks. We ask that you provide a reason when making a "major" edit. i.e. significant new info on the site. more thorough review, site has changed, etc.

2. Major Review edits will move the Review to the top of a site's listing page (just like a new Review). They'll also be displayed in a new "Updated Reviews" section.

3. Major edits will link to a version history, so Users can see the differences between the old and the new Review.

4. After 6 months, a User can elect to submit an entirely new Review to replace the former. Good quality re-reviews can earn up to 2 points (and up to 3 raffle tickets) just like any new review (points from the former Review are always retained).

What we're really looking for when giving additional points is significant improvement of the information you provide about the site. Also remember that the membership time limits still apply. In other words, you should only submit Reviews (or Re-Reviews) for sites you've been a member of w/in the last six (6) months.

5. After 2 years, reviews expire and no longer count toward the score. The reviews will still show on the site, but are highlighted as "expired" and have less exposure.

To submit a Re-Review is easy, simply click "edit" on any review you've written over 6 months ago.

These changes should allow our regular users to update the reviews they've submitted for their favorite sites and earn a few extra points in the process. All this should result in even more accurate information to base your porn buying decisions on.

As always, we thank you for your continued support of PornUsers.com
Improved Scoring System at PornUsers.com

Posted by Khan

July 03rd, 2008 - Replies (13)
In response to ongoing feedback from our users, we've changed the way Review scores are "weighed" in computing a site's total score. Now, old reviews will have less impact on a site's total score. Of course, this has caused some site scores to change from what users are used to seeing.

Here's the way it breaks out ...

Scores will be calculated on a sliding scale that weights newer review more heavily towards the site's final score. For example:
* Under 6 Months = 100%
* 6-12 Months = 50%
* 12-24 Months = 25%
* 24+ Months = 0%


With the new scoring system, we feel a site's score will more accurately reflect current opinions of the site. As has been pointed out to us, older reviews often are based on how the site was (good or bad) when the review was written and does not necessarily reflect what a potential customer will find now.

This is one of several changes we'll be making over the next month or so. Be sure to watch for changes in the guidelines for editing past reviews ... which has been another issue we've received lots of feedback on.

The bottom line is, we'll continue to listen to feedback from our users and improve PornUsers more and more as time goes on.

As always, thank you for your participation at PornUsers.com

PornUsers.com Launches User Forum!!

Posted by Khan

March 31st, 2008 - Replies (4)
We're very happy to announce that we've just opened the general message forum as the latest addition to PornUsers.com!! It is the feature that we've had the most requests for since we opened PornUsers.

The new forum should be an excellent way users can get to know each other better and share information about their porn hobby. It'll also provide a place where those who purchase memberships to pay sites can exchange views with site owners and webmasters about trends in the industry. We feel such exchanges will be a benefit of both sides.

We think the users are going to love the new forum. It's been custom built from the ground up with an eye towards it maintaining the standard of excellence that users of TheBestPorn and PornUsers have come to expect. We're confident that it'll prove a valuable addition to the PornUser.com experience.

The forum is integrated with your existing user/webmaster accounts, so no extra registration is required! However, there are new forum preferences and options. You can now upload your own personalized Avatar (shown on the forum and your profile) and also change your new forum preferences. We strongly urge everyone to visit their Edit Profile page to view/change these options.

So don't delay, checkout the brand new User Forum!!

We'll see you there.
Porn Users Forum Coming Soon!

If there's one thing PornUsers.com has been missing, everyone will tell you it's a general message board. We've always wanted to get one added, but wanted to polish the core functions of PornUsers and also construct a forum in the right way.

I wanted to make this announcement to let everyone know that a forum has officially been in construction since the beginning of February and is expected to be complete by the end of March. We could have plugged a generic 3rd party forum, but it's just not our style. The forum will be completely custom built from the ground up to make the log-in process seemless (requiring no additional sign-up) and to produce something that's unique.

I'm really excited about the final product and I guarantee that the wait will be the worth it!
Raffle Update... E-Gold is in, Moneybookers out!

December 10th, 2007 - Replies (1)
This is an important $200 Tuesdays update which I think most of you will like!!

Moneybookers has suspended our merchant account for being involved in the porn industry. We didn't know this was an issue when signing up, but they do not want to be involved in anything related to porn. Therefore we can no longer make payments with them and they're no longer a raffle payment option.

The GOOD NEWS is that we've added E-Gold as an official payment method as of TODAY! We're still funding our own E-Gold account, but it is now an option for future payments. This also allows ALL users worldwide to receive payments since E-Gold is a worldwide currency.

To signup to our $200 Tuesdays raffle, you can register or pre-register here.

If you're already signed up to our raffle, you can change your payment method anytime at your edit profile page.

Registered users with Moneybookers must change their payment method to E-Gold, eBay, or Amazon by December 19th. After that date, we will have to unregister such accounts from the raffle. We apologize for this inconvenience.
PornUsers.com Updates Part 3

This is the final round of small updates which should further enhance your experience here at PornUsers.com!

New Features:

1. NEW Recent Ranks featured on the homepage. Lists both the top rated sites (minimum 2 reviews) and most reviewed sites in the last 60 days.

2. NEW Date Range feature to Browse Sites which adds ability to view ranks based on Last 60 days feedback.

3. NEW Average Site Rating score added to each user profile page (example: Snowdude). Located under "user stats", you can view the user's average score for all their ratings/reviews.

4. NEW Poll Keyword Search. Located on the Browse Polls page, a new keyword search allows you to search all previous polls (questions/answers). With almost 200 polls to date, this feature will be useful for looking up a certain poll.

Thanks to everyone who e-mailed us new feature ideas. We hope you find the latest round of new upgrades useful!
PornUsers.com Updates Part 2

Posted by Rick

November 19th, 2007 - Replies (3)
This has to be the most excited non-feature upgrade to date. lol

It's finally here! Based on this poll and all the e-mail feedback, a reason is now required when submitting a negative trust rating (to another user)!

This was far more complex of an upgrade than anyone would expect, which is why it took this long to get it done. We needed ample time to prepare and actually execute it properly since the system had to be maintained while entirely re-constructing it from scratch.

So here's how a NO trust rating is hanlded from now on:

1. Negative trust ratings require some sort of reason in the comment box. A valid reason, even if it's simple, must exist.

2. All negative trust ratings are moderated, but will always be pre-approved. So they will go live immediately and may be removed if the reason is not valid. If a trust rating is not approved for some reason, it will be removed and you will get an e-mail notice (if set in your e-mail preferences).

3. Invalid comments are judged as words/characters that explain nothing. The reason just needs to be something the end user will understand. It could be an opinion or state facts about the user's feedback.

4. Negative trust ratings can still be anonymous. We felt this was important to the trust rating system's success.

5. All previous negative trust ratings prior to November 19th will still exist, comment or not. All new or changed though, must have a comment.

6. All positive trust ratings still do not require a comment.

HINT: You can also view and edit all your previous submitted trust ratings by visting the Edit Trust Ratings page. This is accessible from your Edit Profile page or at the bottom of the submit trust rating window. Must be logged in for those links to work.

Thanks for everyone's patience. Sometimes the simple changes turn out to be the most difficult to execute. If you encounter any technical bugs with the trust ratings, please contact us asap.
PornUsers.com Updates Part 1

Posted by Rick

November 01st, 2007 - Replies (11)
We've completed our first list of PornUsers.com Upgrades, most of which are very minor. Improvements generally suggested by users via e-mail or through poll replies.

Here's the list of completed updates:

1. The edit period for reviews and comments has increased from 7 days to 30 days. Follow-up notes to reviews or comments can then be added after the 30 day edit period has expired.

2. Trust Rating comments and replies has been increased from 150 character to 300 character max.

3. The comment "type" has been removed. The user-selectable type was simply a general category selected when users submitted a new comment. These types (like Beware, General, Question) were a little redundant and we felt they were just taking up space. It should make submitting comments more convenient.

4. Domains and URL's are now automatically linked by our system when detected. So domains or urls starting with http:// will automatically be linked. This applies to reviews, comments, and replies.

5. Porn site names are now automatically linked to it's repsective site page here at PornUsers.com by our system when detected. This applies to reviews, comments, and replies. So from now on, if you reference a site, it'll automatically link that site conveniently for other users.

That concludes part 1 of our site update.

Here's a list of items that we'll be testing and implementing over the next week or two:

1. Trust Rating Comment Requirement (for negative trust votes). We've mentioned this feature would be implemented, and now's the time. What seems simple, is actually a very complex change. Each comment will be moderated by admin to assure the comment is legit (and not like random characters, etc).

2. Top Recent Sites Section. This was recently suggested by a user and something we think is a good idea. We'll feature the recent highest rated sites on our homepage and add an option in the Browse Sites section to view site rankings based on pre-determined time preferences.

Major Site Scoring Change

Posted by Rick

August 22nd, 2007 - Replies (11)
We've heard a lot of rumblings recently about this topic and I think most of you will appreciate this update.

Our site rankings were getting a little embarrassing and most of you saw this. Whether it was users trying to be loyal to their favorite solo girl, webmasters urging their members to help them rank higher, or simply site owners creating fake users to boost their own rank... it was time to make a stronger stand against these "potential" shills.

Definition of a shill, as it applies here:

shill –noun
a person who publicizes or praises something or someone for reasons of self-interest, personal profit, or friendship or loyalty.

We anticipated shills from the beginning. We've prepared and taken a few steps already, but this is the BIG change that should help prevent the problematic influence from shills and fake users.

What have we done about it?

Starting NOW, reviews and ratings by registered users with under 5 points (status = Newbie) will no longer count toward the site's score or review count.


How will this help?

1. Previous fake/shill users have mostly added one review and never return. These reviews will no longer count toward the site's score/rank!

2. This will encourage authentic users to at least reach the rookie level (5 points or more) so the reviews (their vote essentially) do mean something and to shows other users they're legit.

3. This will help discourage fake/shill users from even wasting their time writing a review that doesn't count.

Will newbie reviews still be displayed?

Absolutely. It's important to us not to point our fingers at who is and isn't a fake/shill. In this regard, all reviews will still be displayed on our site and now labeled as Newbie. This now tells readers that the user has simply not written many reviews and to keep that in mind.

Why the term "Newbie", even though some of these users have clearly participated in other areas?

This was the term that we knew the majority would understand. We recognize that there are registered users who have been with us for a long time and participate in other ways such as polls, replies, or comments. We don't mean to label them as newbies, but simply their status as a "reviewer". It may not be the perfect term, but we thought it was the most appropriate.

What happens when the potential fake user reaches 5 points?

Then they've definitely outmatched us! lol It's unlikely that such a user would go through the effort. Keep in mind, we usually don't even award a user a single point if the review appears heavily slanted (see our review rules). Readers should continue to use their own judgement on which users to trust or not.

Is that it?

Yep, this single change should have a major impact on the site rankings! Have a look around, you'll notice a major difference.

Always know that we're always looking to improve the system and make changes that make sense. If this change proves to not be as effective as we had hoped, we'll ammend it or add to it.

Look for more updates coming soon, including the very controversial "NO" trust rating. Hint: Comment will soon be required. :)

By popular demand, we've open the gates for adult-oriented teaser sites more commonly known as Non-Nude Sites!

These type of sites have gained popularity in the last few years and are aimed at the consumer who likes to be tortured with girls refusing to take their clothes off for the camera. Some of the more popular solo girls sites have emerged within this niche, such as Next Door Nikki, Kate's Playground, Ann Angel, etc.

We define these sites as adult-oriented solo girls sites where over 90% of the image galleries or videos are sexy teaser pics (no nudity) only. If yer lucky, you might get a quick flash or see-through shirt galleries.

For those into this niche, we'll be adding more sites for you guys to review over the next few weeks! If you know of any sites we're missing, contact us and we'll add it asap.

User Poll Update

May 01st, 2007 - Replies (5)
Quick announcement regarding our user polls, effective immediately:

1. For now, a new poll will no longer launch daily. We're changing it up a little and want to experiment with launching the polls every other day instead. This could change from time to time as well (without notice).

2. Since the polls are so dynamic, we've also removed the polls as a ticket action in the raffle. This shouldn't be a big deal, since the max tickets for the polls was 1 per week. There are still 5 different actions available to earn tickets (24 max tickets per week).

If you have any questions, please post a reply. Thanks!
Trust Comments & Other Updates

Posted by Rick

April 19th, 2007 - Replies (12)
We've been working hard on some more important changes and updates to PornUsers.com! I think most of you will like them. Read below for details:


1. New Trust Rating Comments, Etc.

Based on user input, we've expanded our Trust Ratings some important new features. Here's a list of what's new:

-You must have 5+ points to submit Trust Ratings.
-You have the option to submit a comment with your rating (good or bad).
-You have the option of disclosing your Nick with your rating, versus always being anonymous.
-You can be notified by e-mail when a user rates you with a comment.
-You can reply to trust ratings comments and also be notified when replies are made.
-The page header (when you're logged in) now includes a notification when you've received new trust ratings.
-New preferences can be found from your edit profile page.

2. Previous trust ratings still saved.

All past trust ratings have been saved and still apply. For users with less than 5 points, your previous ratings will be re-activated once you've reached that milestone.

3. Past trust ratings can be edited easily.

We've built a tool (also linked from your edit profile) which makes it easy to review your trust ratings and add comments to each. Go to the new Ratings Mass Edit page to add comments or change the anonymous setting for each rating.

4. New minimum review standards.

Our minimum review criteria has changed quite significantly, more strict that before. Check our review rules (available on the add review page) to view the new standards.

5. Excellent reviews now earn 2 points.

We've previous rated all reviews that qualify with either Approved, Good, or Excellent. Good or Excelllent reviews were granted 1 point each. With the changes, Excellent reviews will earn 2 points. To view our new criteria for both standards, visit the Points Page.

Points have been updated based on previous ratings. Check your profile to see if your points have increased.

6. 2 new badges released.

Profile Badge: Simply answer all "About You" questions from your Edit Profile page.
Trusted Badge: Earn 30 trust votes (Yes) from fellow users to earn this badge.

For specific info, visit the badges page.

7. Profile page gets a design update.

The profile page has gotten a makeover and includes a recent log of trust ratings with date/time and comments.

8. Rookie & Hardcore Badge Updates

The rookie badge and hardcore badge requirements have changed slightly. The rookie badge goal is now 5 points rather than 10 reviews (previously). The hardcore badge goal is now 100 points rather than 100 reviews (previously). This makes is far easier to reach both goals and encourages higher quality reviews.


Damn, that was a long list! Overall these changes are minor, but should be a good step forward toward making PornUsers.com the best it can be.

Please post any comments or bugs in the replies area. Thanks!
Now Win Cash at PornUsers.com!

Today's a big day for PornUsers.com!

We're proud to announce our new weekly drawing called $200 Tuesdays. We've been working on this for weeks and think it will be a huge (and fun) new addition to our site. The concept is to giveaway cash prizes every Tuesday based on user participation for the previous week. It's time to build our exciting community, and this is the perfect idea to kickstart it!

Here's how the contest works:
-Registered users must signup separately to the contest.
-Registered users must earn 5 experience points to qualify for virtual raffle tickets.
-Earning tickets is as simple as writing reviews, comments, replies, etc.
-Each badge will earn you 1 bonus ticket weekly (added only after 1 regular ticket is earned).
-The drawing takes place each Tuesday at 3pm PST.
-Three winning tickets will be chosen each drawing ($100, $60, $40).
-4 payment options are available, must be chosen during raffle signup.
-Winners will be notified via e-mail.

Will my previous reviews/activity count (prior to signing up to the raffle)?
Unfortunately not. The contest is intended to reward only activity for the week. However, if you've earned any badges, you'll be credited bonus tickets weekly for each badge earned (forever), which is a huge advantage!

Read more about how to signup and earn tickets here:
http://www.pornusers.com/raffle_info.html

You'll notice other major changes to our site:
-Since badges now earn you bonus tickets, they no longer count toward your experience points (5).
-Our homepage now features the latest raffle stats/winners, plus some other interface updates.
-The "log-in" header of our site has been updated. Offers your raffle stats, and updated interface.
-The raffle info pages and tons of raffle stats/logs!

To conclude, do not wait to signup for the raffle!! There's no cost, committment, and takes 1 minute! Activity DOES NOT count until you have registered. Even if you don't have 5 experience points yet, you can still signup to the raffle. Then you'll earn tickets automatically after you qualify.

Check everything out, especially the FAQ's here:
http://www.pornusers.com/raffle.html

Look forward to your feedback, and there's no better time to get involved than NOW!

Trust Ratings Added to PornUsers

Posted by Khan

February 20th, 2007 - Replies (0)
We're happy to announce the addition of "Trust Ratings" as the newest feature to PornUsers.com. We feel our users are going to find these very helpful in deciding which reviews are from someone who's judgement they can trust.

From the time we launched PornUsers, we've been receiving feedback about how biased, one-sided reviews hold little value when it comes to helping other users determine if a site is one they want to join. As we've discovered, all reviews are not created equal.

While it's understandable that certain users are strong fans of one or more pay sites, their comments and reviews tend to read more like promotions than as objective remarks that others can base their buying decisions on. We don't want "fans" to feel like their comments are not welcomed, however, we needed to provide a tool so regular users could know which reviewers tend to be "on the money" with their remarks.

Trust Ratings should help resolve this dilemma.

So what is a Trust Rating and how does it work?

In essence, the Trust Rating is simply a way to allow the community to judge for themselves who's remarks are trustworthy based on that user's activity. In other words, can the reviewer's remarks be trusted to be accurate to what others will find if they visit a site.

Here's some of the specifics:
- All ratings are anonymous
- Each user can rate all other users
- You can rate each user only once (the rating is for the user, not a specific remark)
- You can change your rating of a specific user at any time
- Only uses can enter a Trust Rating (Webmasters don't get a vote)
- A user must have 5 Trust Ratings before they're assigned a Trust Score

We've made it easy to cast your rating. You can do it from any Review or Comment made. You'll be able to see another user's rating on each remark they make or by visiting their profile page.

We're hoping that Trust Ratings will encourage all users to write credible reviews. At the least, they'll add another layer of information that users can rely on when deciding what pay sites they want to join and which they'd rather not.

So, if you haven't seen them yet, you'll want to head to www.PornUsers.com right now to see if you have any Trust Ratings yet. While you're there, be sure to start rating your fellow reviewers.

Here at PornUsers.com we're committed to providing the best user review site on the planet. We feel that this latest addition is another step towards that goal.

PornUsers.com Launches User Polls

Posted by Khan

February 02nd, 2007 - Replies (2)
Our exciting new Daily Poll feature is LIVE, go check it out: www.pornusers.com/home.html

We love polls and have been looking forward to launching this feature since we began!

Polls are a fun way for us to get to know our users and for the users to get to know each other better. It's always interesting to see how others vote. As an added bonus, they allow industry operators (like us) to make better informed decisions when it comes to what porn buyers really want.

Here's some info on how our polls will work:

. There will be a new poll every day (posted at midnight PST).
. You have to be registered user to vote.
. You can only vote once on any given poll. Browse previous polls here.
. You can offer details and remarks to a poll via the Reply feature.
. All votes are anonymous (though replies will show your user-name)
. Webmasters cannot vote, but they can reply.

All polls will stay open and be accessible in our Browse Polls section. You can even vote on past polls if you miss a day. To help keep the polls fun (and interesting) we're also inviting Users to suggest questions for future polls. We're really looking forward to seeing the kinds of questions users come up with.

Like we said, we love polls so we're excited about getting this feature added. We hope you'll enjoy it as well.
Notice About Guest Reviews

Posted by Khan

January 20th, 2007 - Replies (6)
Just before the launch of PornUsers.com, we extended certain privileges to Guest Users that were originally designed just for Registered Users. We fear that's not really working as well as we'd hoped.

There's debate among the staff as to the cause of this problem. Some think it's outright attempts to skew the ratings for certain sites. Others feel it's just the nature of the anonymous reviews to allow for more extreme opinions than would otherwise be posted.

Whatever the reason, the one thing we all agree on is that Guest reviews tend to hit the high and low end of the rating scale. We find it odd that, as a rule, the majority of reviews by Registered Users fall near the same range of scores as the reviewers of TBP, while those of Guest users tend to gravitate towards the far extremes, both good and bad. We've given this some thought and decided to go back to the original plan of only allowing registered users to post reviews and comments.

While we don't regret testing the waters in the beginning, we now feel this change is best for the overall quality of our site. To be candid, before launch we weren't sure how many users would actually register to share their opinions about porn sites. To our pleasant surprise, we've had a lot of success with users registering. Admittedly, this makes the decision easier as we're now confident there will be ample reviews and comments for users to base their decisions on.

Therefore, effective Monday (22-Jan-2007) we will no longer post Reviews or Comments from non-registered users. Also, we feel it's only fair that we remove all previously posted Guest reviews and comments. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but feel strongly that it's the right thing to do under the circumstances.

It is our hope that users will find the reviews from fellow buyers of porn site memberships helpful in making their selections about which site(s) to join. We feel strongly that by allowing you to see the review history of each reviewer, you'll be in a better position to judge if that reviewer's likes, dislikes and general perspective offers you insight to base your decisions on.

As always, we're dedicated to providing users a great place to learn about sites they may want to join.

Over 11,000 Sites to Review

Posted by Khan

January 12th, 2007 - Replies (1)
We've received a few emails asking how to submit a site that's not already showing here at PornUsers.com. While this is covered to some extent in our FAQ, these emails reminded us that while the process of adding a site is very easy, it may not be immediately obvious to new visitors. Hopefully, we can remedy that here and now.

The first thing to understand is that you are not limited to the sites currently showing. You can add Reviews or Comments on any site that has a listing at TheBestPorn.com (TBP). As of this writing, there are 11,066 sites listed so there's a pretty good chance that the site you want to review is there.

There are a number of ways to get to the "Add a Review" link for a site. If you're a veteran TBP user, you can just find the site there and scroll to the green section of the page where you'll find a link to add your own review. But in case you're not a TBP user, we'll walk you through the process here at PornUsers.com

Here's what you do ...

1. Locate the "Easy Site Search" box in the right-hand menu of our home page (also found on many other pages here).

2. Enter the name of the site you want to review.

This will bring up a page that has a list of sites. There may be one site listed or there may be several. The site you're looking for should be on the list.

3. Click the site name.

This will bring up the summary page for the site you've selected. On the left hand side of the page, just below the summary info, look for the section that's labeled "User Reviews"

4. Click "Add Review" link.

That's all there is to it. See, we told you it was easy.

Of course, you'll want to make sure you're logged into your Registered User account before you write your review and/or comment. Registered users have more options and their reviews are given more weight than Guest reviews. Registered users can also reply to any questions or comments their review generates. So, registration certainly has its perks.

We hope that clears up any questions you had about how to add a site that isn't already listed here. As always, if you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for using PornUsers.com


The BestPorn.com Goes Big With The launch of PornUsers.com

Posted by Rick

January 10th, 2007 - Replies (4)
Las Vegas, Nevada – The adult review website, TheBestPorn.com is proud to announce the official launch of PornUsers.com. PornUsers.com will focus on adult paysite reviews and comments written by adult paysite members.

At Pornusers.com individuals will be able to write reviews, comment on other reviews, leave quick comments and receive replies direct from website owners. Benefits to Webmasters will include the ability to post site news and receive email notifications when new reviews or comments about their sites are listed. Additionally they will have the opportunity to directly respond to users.

PornUsers.com will be monitored by an industry veteran Khan. Many may know Khan from his active role at YNOT over the years. When asked about PornUsers.com Khan said “I feel the site is going to be an immediate hit with porn surfers who will love having a place to voice their opinions.”

PornUsers.com will be groundbreaking in terms of its size and scope, and have a major impact on the adult review site marketplace. “Our initial market research indicates that PornUsers.com is going to be even bigger than we expected.” says Vegas Ken, Director of Marketing. “I really think that PornUsers.com will drive some of the highest volume and qualified affiliate traffic in our industry.”

Rick Muenyong, the founder of TheBestPorn.com is very excited about this launch. "This is definitely the most enjoyable and challenging project we've ever done. I can't wait to learn and read what porn consumers really think. The basic infrastructure is solid and will allow for an unprecedented exchange of valuable information."

TheBestPorn.com and PornUsers.com are subsidiaries of Ranks.com, Inc. which was founded in 2003 by Rick Muenyong. TheBestPorn.com is currently the largest review site with 11,000 sites listed and over 3,400 reviews.
Some Minor Changes and a Big Thank You

Posted by Khan

January 09th, 2007 - Replies (1)
Before our official launch tomorrow we wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who has participated in our beta testing. We also want to thank those who've written to tell us how much they like the site. That means a lot to us.

So far, we think the testing has gone great. We've also learned a lot in a short time. As a result of some of what we've learned, we'll be making some minor changes as soon as we can get them coded. You'll probably see some of them later today.

One major thing we'll change is that we're going to set the minimum score for a Rating to 50% (previous scores below this will be raised to 50). Our reasoning for this is that a single very low score can significantly skew a site's overall average. We feel that isn't fair to the site nor is it especially helpful to fellow users. You'll still be able to express your opinions in the Review and if you think a site is especially bad, you can even add a comment to that effect. However, we are confident that if a site is bad, it'll consistently have low scores to warn other users. As it is, we're seeing most scores have kept consistent standards with our scores at TBP, so by keeping scores above 50, it makes the transition easier.

Another minor change is we're adding a guideline for the Rating scores. On this one we're not telling you what to rate, only offering some guidance in an effort to have some consistency in the numeric scores assigned.

There are a few other minor changes you might see but mostly, they're behind the scenes stuff to help us keep the site running smoothly.

So again, thank you so much for your participation in our beta testing and we'll hope you continue to find PornUsers.com a site you'll want to tell your friends about.


Regards,
PornUsers.com Staff
Welcome to Porn Users, Begin Here!

Wow, I don't know where to start.

It feels like forever since we first wanted just a simple user comment form at TBP (The Best Porn) like most other review sites. What you may have learned by now is that we can never keep an idea simple! As we started developing our simple user rating/comment input, naturally more ideas were drawn up and the project kept getting bigger, more complex, and eventually too big for it's own good. Eventually, the best choice was to build it's own site/brand and go big from the beginning. It's one year later and I'm proud to report that's exactly what we've done!

To get you started, I've put together a basic guide. I pretty much copied some of our important FAQ's and listed them for you below. :)

1. How do a I find a specific site?

I imagine most of you have (or had) adult memberships already. Those sites would be the best place to start inputting feedback to. To look-up a specific site we recommend using the EASY SITE SEARCH, which is available from our homepage and most browse pages. The search scans through our entire site database. Click the site title in the results and you'll get to the site page where you can post a new review or comment.

An alternative is to browse all our listings from the Browse Sites page (with minimum reviews = 0). That will display all the sites and sort them by the user score and/or TBP review score. From that page you can also break down the sites by niche or site type.


2. Do I have to register to submit feedback?

Unregistered users (guests) are permitted to submit reviews and comments, but there are restrictions you should know. Guest feedback is not live on our site until our staff officially approves it (which can take up to 24 hours). Guest review scores are weighted much less than registered user reviews. Guests cannot edit their submitted feedback after it's submitted. Guests cannot posts replies to users who might comment to their feedback.

As you can see, registering has its benefits and is HIGHLY recommended. Even if you're shy to post, you can still use our bookmark system to save your favorite sites, reviews, and users (and store private notes about each.


3. Can I rate a site without a review?

Absolutely. Registered users only.

On each site page, there is a link to add a Quick Rating (along with Add Review or Comment) near the User Reviews title bar. Click that link to add a rating-only. You can rate each site once, and upgrade that rating to a review at anytime.

Keep in mind that ratings are weighted much less than a full review toward the site's overall score.


4. Will site owners see my feedback?

You bet! Site owners and/or webmasters have access at launch day (January 10th) and we're hoping will gradually become very involved in our site. Each will have the option of creating a profile type of their own. They'll be able to reply to your reviews/comments and post what we call Site News of their own to keep their consumers and potential buyers up to date. A big part of our goal is to bring users and webmasters together. It's never really been attempted at this magnitude and we're hoping it'll open new doors of communication.


I look forward to reading all the site feedback! We know most will be lurking the site more than posting, but please do register (you can always disable it later if you don't use it). It's VERY easy, you won't be spammed, info won't be sold/traded (check our Privacy Policy if you need to), and you'll have more site functionality. We really value the loyal TBP users and hope Porn Users will feed into an entirely new audience as well.

We always enjoy hearing from you, so please feel free to contact us at anytime!

Regards,
Rick (Founder, Chief)
