Advantages of Registering
Registration offers many conveniences, is FREE, and takes as little as 30 seconds to do!
The principal reason for registration is to filter out a lot of noise which is created by an anonymous environment.
We do NOT sell e-mail addresses to spammers, and we even have a built-in message blocking feature in order to mute out persistent users.
Advantages for those who read reviews:
- No blinking ads!
The ads at the top of the page and the pop-unders will no longer appear. The unobtrusive product suggestions in the left-side bar will, however, remain.
- Ability to send private messages to other registered users.
This is useful for contacting other voters for more information on their reviews.
- Ability to receive messages and notifications via e-mail.
This allows you to receive notifications when people wish to contact you about more information or when people have responded to an inquiry. Your e-mail address is NEVER exposed to the public and thus is protected from spam.
- Ability to rate other votes
This provides us with feedback and allows you to tailor the site to your needs by emphasizing the votes you like and de-emphasizing those you don't.
- Ability track favorite sections and entries
This allows users to jump directly to frequently visited sections or entries. It also keeps track of any new votes or messages per each entry.
Advantages for those who write reviews:
- Your votes are worth more!
Because of the dubious nature of anonymous votes, they all start out being labeled as "unreliable". By simply registering, your votes will carry more weight.
- Get credit for your votes
The votes you write will be rated by users and upon receiving favorable reviews, your user level will rise.
- Summary of new responses
Because there are so many entries, it can be a real challenge to manually check for replies to your votes/messages. If you register, we'll keep track of them for you!
