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!
