Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to register in order to add a review?
We want to maintain the integrity of the reviews and avoid spamming.
I registered but never received my confirmation e-mail. Why?
Check your spam folder, it may have gone in there. Also add chickadvisor.com
to your safe list so it isn't treated as spam.
What is the policy on member profiles?
Member profiles are for regular "Chicks" or "Dudes" only. This is not the place to advertise your business. It is for adding reviews, making friends and interacting in a non-spammy way with our members. Can you tell we hate spam yet?
We do allow you to add a link to your blog/website but do not use your profile as an area to advertise your business, publish your logo or as a tool to contact other members for the purposes of solicitation as that is strictly forbidden. We reserve the right to delete profiles that violate this policy.
How do I find a friend on ChickAdvisor?
Ask them to email you their profile link (looks like www.chickadvisor.com/chick/name_goes_here) which they can find by logging in, clicking on My Profile and the location appears in the navigation bar. Then click on their link to view their profile. A button should appear to the right of their picture that says Add as Friend. Click on it, an acceptance email is sent to them, and they can approve your friend request right in their profile.
Otherwise, email them your profile link and ask them to add you. You'll see the pending accept request when you click on My Friends in your dashboard. You can approve them from there.
How do I create my own Lists?
Under your profile, you can create as many Lists as you'd like. Click on the My Lists tab and you'll be asked to give it a title and add your comments. Create as many as you'd like.
When you see something you like on ChickAdvisor, click on the Add to my favorites! link and you will be given a choice of which List you'd like to add it to.
Can I add an image to my review after I've submitted it?
