Porn Users Introduction

Our mission statement and a little more about us.

Title   Content
Mission Statement   PornUsers.com is dedicated to providing a friendly, unbiased site where those who actually buy memberships to adult pay sites can share their experiences, both good and bad. In this way we feel that those who purchase memberships to online porn sites can benefit from the experience (and mistakes) of their fellow users. It is our sincere hope that by providing a forum for open feedback from those who purchase memberships, that adult site owners will improve their sites so that both surfers and site owners gain value from our service.
A Natural Evolution   PornUsers.com was a natural off-shoot of our very popular review site, TheBestPorn.com. While porn users love seeing the comments by our professional reviewers, we frequently receive comments, complaints, reports, and even reviews of sites we list. Our audience was growing and we believed we had the loyal visitors required to build a community.

So PornUsers.com was born.

We also believe paying members will share more organic and emotional summary of their experience that our reviewers (at TBP) can't duplicate by judging a site for 1-2 hours.

We've worked and prepared what we believe is a top-notch professional site that will allow users the free exchange of opinions. To maintain the atmosphere of a friendly, high quality, unbiased community we've come up with a solid base of Rules and Standards which you can read below, and as we learn more we will continue to adjust them.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your experience at PornUsers.com. If you ever have any comments or suggestions, please let us know!

Terms & Conditions

Basic terms and conditions about our web-site.

Term and/or Condition   Explanation
Acceptance of Terms   Acceptance of this site's Terms, Policies and Guidelines is a condition of use for this site. If you cannot accept any of our terms, please leave this site.
Use of this site is a Privilege   Continued access to this site and its services is a privilege, not a right. PornUsers.com reserves the right to terminate that privilege at its sole discretion at any time and for any reason it deems is in the best overall interest of the site and its mission.
One Account Permitted Per Person/IP   To prevent unfairly skewing site ratings among other issues, only one account is permitted per person (or same IP). We realize that an IP could be shared among multiple users, so we also look at the user activity to determine whether the feedback submitted (reviews/comments) is bias toward a specific site or group of sites.

If activity from multiple accounts with the same IP does appear to be suspicious, we will suspend one or both accounts. Unfortunately we have to be very strict about this to help protect the authenticity of the overall feedback/ratings.

Each situation is uniquely judged case by case.
User Agrees to Safeguard Login Info   Upon registration, each user is assigned private login information that allows access to the extended features of this site. Users agree to exercise all precautions to safeguard this information and to keep it private. Users may NOT share their login information with anyone for any reason.
Users are responsible for themselves   Each user accepts full responsibility for all activity initiated from their account. While PornUSers.com exerts a reasonable effort to screen (and/or delete) inappropriate comments and remarks, it must be understood that we cannot be held accountable for the actions of each user.
Users should conduct themselves as adults   Upon entry into this site, each user certified that they were an adult, therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself as an adult at all times. It is natural for different people with different tastes from different backgrounds to disagree. However, even when you disagree you should conduct yourself as a responsible adult and refrain from personal attacks and put-downs of fellow users.
We are not responsibe for the sites we link to.   PornUsers.com does not own or control the adult sites that are listed here thus, we may not be held accountable for their actions, policies or content.
Prohibited Uses   No part of the PornUsers.com site (or mail/message system) may be used to undermine or otherwise get around the legitimate security features of the sites we list. This includes (but is not limited to) password sharing, back-door access, circumventing DRM and/or streaming video, etc.

Users may not represent themselves (to site owners/webmasters) in any way that could reasonably be misunderstood as them impersonating officials of the PornUsers site.
Prohibited Language   Due to search engine restrictions, there are certain words that we choose not to allow on our site. Thus, we reserve the right to edit posts to accommodate this limitation. Rest assured, we will use the lightest touch possible when editing a user's post.
Site and Services are offered AS-IS.   While PornUsers.com works extensively and at great expense to offer its users and webmasters a valuable service, it must be understood that this site and its services are offered AS-IS and there is no guarantee or warranty stated or implied. While every effort is maintained to prevent it, we cannot be held responsible for temporary or permanent loss of service or data.
Site language is English   Because we need to have the ability to have the Reviews, Comments and Replies screened by our staff, for now, all postings must be in English. If English is not your first language, please don't feel intimidated, we don't count off for spelling and grammar.
We reserve the right to modify our Terms   PornUsers.com reserves the right to modify our Terms of Use at any time for any reason. Users are encouraged to periodically review the Terms and Guidelines so that they may be aware of any changes.

Privacy Policy

Our terms regarding the sharing of personal information.

Question   Answer
Who is PornUsers.com?   PornUsers.com is a product of Ranks.com LLC, a Nevada Limited Liability Company. Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site. We do not collect, use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than those identified below, except with your consent or as required by law.

PornUsers.com respects your privacy !
What information do you collect and share?   Upon registration through the Create Account Form we collect information that allows us to create a unique account for each user.

Most information is not sensitive and be aware that certain information is made public in your user profile:

-User Nick/Name
-Age (derived from birth date)
-Location (optional)
-Gender (optional)

The following information is kept private and will not be shared with the public or any 3rd parties:

-E-mail Address
-Password
-Exact Birth Date

Your password is never seen by our staff at anytime. There is a one-time welcome e-mail (sent after initial signup) which will contain your password. It's then stored and encrypted in our system (with a one-way algorithm) which means there's no way anyone can unencrypt it. If you ever lose or forget your password, you can only reset the password (sent to your e-mail address) and then input a new password if you wish at that time.

Your e-mail address and birth date can be accessed by our staff, but will only be used for the administration of your account. See below for more information about how your e-mail is used.
How is my email address used?   We use your email address in a number of ways. First and foremost, your email address is used to administer your account. Secondly, if you opted-in to the newsletter, you may periodically receive those (see "Newsletter/E-mail Marketing"). Beyond that, there are a number of notification options that allow active reviewers to stay current on replies to their reviews, comments, etc. Some of these options may be turned on or off via the "Preferences" section of the Edit Profile screen.

If you no longer wish to receive any email from PornUsers.com you will need to disable your account on the Edit Profile screen. Of course, then you will not be able to use all of this site's features.
Newsletter/E-mail Marketing   The subscriber's e-mail address may be used by the site to communicate site news, special offers and other relevant information such as site updates or announcements, etc. In addition, there may be occasions when a subscriber will be presented with special offers from third-party parties. The subscriber may opt-out of a mailing list by clicking on the remove link located at the bottom of the email newsletter and/or promotions by visiting here.
Does PornUsers.com track and store my IP address?   Yes. Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. We store the IP address during creation of each account and for significant actions/submissions by registered or unregistered users. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site.

IP addresses are used to help assist us in tracking down abuse of our site. They will never be shared with other users or 3rd parties.
Does PornUsers.com use Cookies?   Yes, similar to most websites, PornUsers.com utilizes a standard technology called "Cookies" to collect information about how our website is used.

One primary use of the Cookies we set is to allow ease-of-use for our site and to prevent you from having to repeatedly log in.

Information gathered through cookies may include (but is not limited to) date and time of visit, pages viewed, time spent at our website. This information is not shared or sold to third party organizations for any purpose.
Anything else I need to know?   We would remind all users that our site is viewable to the public via the World Wide Web, thus we would strongly encourage users to exercise due prudence before disclosing personal information in the public areas of the site.

The bottom line about our Privacy Policy is this ...
We respect your privacy and do all within our power to protect the private information that you provide to us. You can rest assured that your personal information, including your email address, is never sold, shared or traded to outside third parties.

Review Rules

Rules and FAQ's for submitting reviews.

Question   Answer
What should a user review contain?   Our user reviews have more quality standards and rules than most other user submitted review sites. This is designed to keep the reviews informative, fair, and interesting.

Here's the very minimum to get your review approved:

1. A combination of at least 4 unique pros or cons (So 2 pros and 2 cons would be acceptable). Each pro/con should be constructive and easy to understand. Short bullet points are acceptable.

2. A bottom line statement about the site. Should include an overall opinion of the site and any other items worth mentioning.

3. Review should contain at least 50 words of useful content.

Good reviews can earn points toward your profile. Points give you added priveleges and credibility. Read about our good/excellent review criteria to earn up to 2 points per review.

We also highly recommend checking out the forum thread "What should a PU review include?" which include some great review tips contributed by some of our advanced users.

All reviews are pre-approved (by users in good standing) and then later evaluated by a staff member. Meeting the criteria above does not guarantee approval. Read below for other rules and information.
What type of reviews may not be approved?   Our staff does its best to uphold our review quality standards (view #1 for more info). The problem is its difficult to define exactly what is allowed and not allowed since every review is unique.

Here's a few review examples of what may not be approved:

1. One-sided reviews that appear to have put little or no effort in judging the site fairly. We're pretty lenient right now, but we reserve the right to deny reviews we feel aren't geniune.

2. Reviews that focus on one specific feature or problem unrelated to the site's main product. For example, there's a temporary billing or hosting issue with the site and that's all the review points out. Such a problem should be posted as a comment, not a review.

3. Reviews that contain only general opinions and little or no reasons to justify them. For example "This site is awesome, go signup" or "This site blows, I don't recommend it.". Just make sure to include some useful content for other potential buyers.

We always reserve the right to remove or deny a review from being published for any reason we deem approrpriate. This probably won't happen, but it has to be said.
Are there any other specific rules I need to know?   Some other important review standards to keep in mind:

1. A review should judge the site as a whole, not isolated to a specific feature, section, or problem. There's no need to address every detail of the site, but we recommend pointing out what the site does well and what the site could improve on.

2. If the review appears one-sided or focused on one thing, it loses credibility. If you want to simply address one or two things (good or bad) about a site, post a comment instead.

3. Consider your score carefully. If you don't like a site, don't rush to give them a 50 (or a perfect score if you love a site). Consider 100 being absolutely perfect and 50 being a site the worst adult site on the net. We recommend following our rating guidelines (shown below the rating input field). You can change the score at anytime, but score it as best you can from the beginning.

4. If a site includes bonus access to other sites, we recommend focusing your review on the subject site and only consider the bonus sites as an extra feature. A lot of times sites that offer included access to other sites have a network which we should have listed. If you want to review all the sites as a whole, we recommend reviewing the network.

5. Reviews may NOT be based on LIMITED Trials or FREE Access to a site unless such free access is a normal part of a PAID subscription to a network. Users MAY NOT contact webmasters / site owners asking for free access for the purposes to do a review.
How should I format the pros and cons?   You can format pros and cons in any way you find appropriate (obviously not referring to the context). We do have recommendations on how to structure your text to make it easy for users to read.

Here's a few examples we recommend:

1. Use a hyphen to list each pro or con like a bullet point list.

2. Write one sentence for each pro or con, one after another.

We usually recommend summarizing each pro/con in a single sentence (rather than a paragraph explanation) for the sake of keeping it simple and to the point. There are times where it's appropriate to explain a pro/con deeper, so use your own discretion.

You have the freedom to format these how you wish, so don't feel like you need to follow our recommendations.
What should the bottom line contain?   The bottom line is intended to contain the bulk of your review comments, but it doesn't have to. It's your review, so make it your own. Just in case you need some ideas though, read more below.

This is what you might consider for your bottom line:

1. Statement of recommendation. Would you recommend others to sign-up for this site?

2. List some things you'd like to see (like a wish list) the site add in the future.

3. Explain your pros/cons in more detail if necessary.

4. Why did you sign-up in the first place, did it meet your expectations? Have you remained a member?

5. Is there one specific pro or con that really needs to be highlighted? Bottom line is always appropriate to re-enforce that again.
Can I link or mention other sites?   Links (including the posting of urls) are not permitted at this time (for various reasons), but we might enable this down the road.

Although you'll notice above we don't permit the promotion of other sites or services, there are certain exceptions where mentioning other sites is ok:

1. Make references from other sites (within reason) to help make your point.

2. If you're not happy with your membership (you should explain why) and want to recommend a few other sites, this is no problem.

3. You can reference other sites from the same company for almost any reason.

What we're trying to avoid are shameless promotions of other sites or services. In our business, competition can be fierce and site owners will go to extreme lengths to get an edge. If we feel the comment promotes another site (or group of sites) with no reasonable point behind it, expect it to be denied.
How does a user get banned or suspended?   Users can be suspended (or banned) for a number of ways. As it relates to reviews, users who post reviews that are clearly not permitted can be suspended immediately.

A warning will usually be given to first time offenders and users who didn't intend to break our rules may just have their submission denied. A suspension is usually given if the user has broken our rules and has previous been warned.

We also look for and have tools to help detect fake users. Whether it's users who register for multiple accounts, users who have an obvious agenda, or users influenced by an outside source. Users who display this behavior beyond a reasonable doubt will be banned and all previous submissions will be removed.

We always reserve the right to suspend or ban a user profile for any reason we feel necessary. It's not required for us to explain why, but it's standard policy for us to give a fair and reasonable explanation.

Comment Rules

Rules and FAQ's for submitting comments.

Question   Answer
What is a comment?   Comments are meant to fill other needs that reviews aren't intended to provide.

Here's the type of content we're looking for:

1. Quick notes or comments about the site.
2. Technical issues or questions.
3. Billing issues or questions.
4. Customer service issues.
5. Site speed and reliability reports.
6. Questions about the site (may or may not get answer).
7. Warnings about trials, drm, false advertising, etc.
8. Anything positive you want to highlight about the site.
What shouldn't be posted here?   As long as your comment is related to the site, you should be ok.

Here's the type of content not permitted:

1. No personal information (e-mail, address, names) that's considered private or confidential.
2. Comments to a specific user review (post in replies).
3. Comments to a specific TBP review (we'll have a replies page soon).
4. Comments not related to the site.
5. Comments without useful substance or information.
6. Promotion of any other site or service.
Can I link or mention other sites?   Links (including the posting of urls) are not permitted at this time (for various reasons), but we might enable this down the road.

If we feel the comment promotes another site (or group of sites) with no reasonable point behind it, expect it to be denied.
How can I get the site webmaster to reply?   If there is a registered webmaster listed on the site page (under the Site News section), then most likely they will get a notice when a new review or comment is added.

Webmasters are not required to reply, but if they have registered with us it's more than likely they're reading all the user feedback posted. Each webmaster has a number next to their name. That number represents the number of comments and/or reviews they've replied to. The higher the number, the greater the chance they're reading and will reply if needed.
How does a user get banned or suspended?   Users can be suspended (or banned) for a number of ways. As it relates to comments, users who post comments that are clearly not permitted can be suspended immediately.

A warning will usually be given to first time offenders and users who didn't intend to break our rules may just have their submission denied. A suspension is usually given if the user has broken our rules and has previous been warned.

Reply Rules

Rules and FAQ's for submitting replies.

Question   Answer
What's the intention of replies?   We built a reply section for nearly every area of Porn Users we felt users would want to voice a response.
Replies can be an excellent feature of Porn Users if handled properly.

Here are some reasons we offer replies:

1. The ability to agree/disagree.
2. Ask for clarification about some point raised.
3. Point out any incorrect facts.
4. Engage in a related conversation or debate.
5. Praise quality feedback.

You might find other good ways to utilize our replies, just keep it clean and consistent with our rules below.
What's allowed and what's not?   Replies are meant to act similar to a "Comments" section of a blog entry (for those familiar). It's setup in a message board format to keep the replies organized and simple to follow.

All replies should follow these rules:

1. Initial replies to the original feedback should be related to that feedback in some form. Irrelevant replies or spam will not be tolerated..

2. Replies to existing replies should also stay on task. If the conversation becomes unrelated or personal, be aware that we may remove those replies (at our discretion).

3. Personal attacks are also not what our replies are intended for. Please keep disagreements respectful. Personal attacks will result in a warning or suspension (depending on the severity).

Our replies areas are given slightly more freedom than other type of submissions (reviews or comments), but we ask you guys to please keep relevant and respectful.
Can I link or mention other sites?   Links (including the posting of urls) are not permitted at this time (for various reasons), but we might enable this down the road.

Although you'll notice above we don't permit the promotion of other sites or services, there are certain exceptions where mentioning other sites is ok:

1. Make references from other sites (within reason) to help make your point.

2. If you're not happy with your membership (you should explain why) and want to recommend a few other sites, this is no problem.

3. You can reference other sites from the same company for almost any reason.

What we're trying to avoid are shameless promotions of other sites or services. In our business, competition can be fierce and site owners will go to extreme lengths to get an edge. If we feel the a reply promotes another site (or group of sites) with no reasonable point behind it, expect it to be denied.
Replies are pre-approved, but still moderated.   All replies are pre-approved for registered users. Be aware that our staff does still look and give each reply an official "approval" or "denial".

Our intentions and rules are shown in section #1 and #2 above, so please read and follow them. We always reserve the right to remove any reply (even if previously approved) for any reason we feel necessary.

Rating Rules

Rules and FAQ's for submitting quick ratings.

Question   Answer
Are quick ratings moderated?   Yes and no.

We do have tools in place to assist us in catching fake users (users with an agenda), but we don't approve each individual quick rating like we do for reviews and comments. Since the system only permits a single rating per registered user, the abuse must be judged from analyzing each user's feedback history.
How should I approach the rating?   Consider your score carefully. If you don't like a site, don't rush to give them a 50 (or a perfect score if you love a site). Consider 100 being absolutely perfect and 50 being a site the worst adult site on the net. We recommend following our rating guidelines (shown below the rating input field). You can change the score at anytime, but score it as best you can from the beginning.
How many quick ratings can I add per site?   You can rate each site once. If you've written a review for a site already (which includes a rating), then that counts as a rating also.
Will my quick rating expire?   Yes, they will.

Current all reviews, comments, and ratings expire after 1 year (from it's creation date) and no longer count toward the site's score. While reviews and comments are archived for later viewing, ratings are not kept on record past this date. The idea is to keep the total score for each site as up to date as possible.

You can submit a new quick rating after it expires.
