Always have been good to me. My mom had a subscription for my grandpa, who stopped watching movies due to his eyesight. They actually gave her a refund for months when he had not been using it at all. A good example of business, streaming only is still a good deal, now that they are adding more content.

IMDB is a great site with lots of info and it's connected to Amazon and they rock too. It's been around forever and I've been a member for almost 14 years. Someday I'll have an IMDB page when I finally get all the fame I deserve.

There are many excellent quizzes on Sporcle, and the userbase is very creative in developing various games such as mine puzzles.

Their customer support is excellent. Despite being a completely free website, their email responses have been quicker and more informative than other companies that I was a paying customer for.... Comcast and PG&E.

It's very exciting to see the new quizzes each day.

The site still has tons of content. If you are a new visitor you will find dozens of hours of high-quality cartoons that no other website has ever matched. If you're impatient/ADD, this is a good fit. The longest cartoons are maybe ten minutes, with many that are less than two minutes.

Sadly, Flash is dead, so all new contributions to the site are just embedded versions of YouTube videos, which is where all their content is posted now.

Instagram

Instagram is perfect for me. I've always been a photogrpaher ever since I was five years old and Instagram lets me add photos instantly. There's even my instagram girlfriend that instantly likes my photos and I like her sexy pics in return. Someday I'll meet her and do non-PG13 things to her.

Tip for consumers: Report bots.

Clay and his wife Dee have been running this company for more than 20 years. The product has remained amazing over the years and I stand by them. Others may prefer a "fancier" game like Out of the Park Baseball but I prefer something that doesn't eat up computer resources.

I wish they could have hired me to do something, but TBH I don't think my skillset would help them at all, and they probably don't have the time or resources to hire more employees than they have.

An amazing site to play Legend of the Red Dragon. It is one of the two sites that have more than 5-10 players... but even so, it's in a decline, sadly. It used to have 450 players total (150 per realm, 3 realms) and now it's just 2 realms and about 110-120 players TOTAL.

Still amazing to get more than 100 people to play a 20+ year old BBS door game.

Panjury

I was one of the original members on Panjury. It's quite a bit like Sitejabber but the reviews are easier to find.

If you want to find out what people think about a large variety of topics, Panjury is a place to go to! You can even make your own "subjury" about anything you want.

Tip for consumers: Post lots of reviews and don't be anonymous.

Reddit

Reddit

9/24/13

There is a lot to do on Reddit. There's pretty much a subreddit for any conceivable topic... ranging from those with thousands of active members to others with less than 100.

My only issue is that I don't feel I really fit in anywhere as much as others that I know on Reddit. I see them with 10,000+ karma, and I've managed just 208 comment karma over the years.

StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon

3/3/16

I've gotten thousands of hits promoting my own content on Statcounter. if you write interesting and engaging content you can submit it to Statcounter and get lots of hits. It works WAY better than crap like Reddit for shameless self promotion because the people that use Stumbleupon actually enjoy interesting content!

Only 4 stars though because the UI could use some work.

Lets you do things for free that cost a lot of money on Eharmony and Match. Some of the girls are a bit snobby, but others are really down to earth. Have not had a date from here, but that's my fault, not the site.

Credit Karma

Credit Karma

3/17/17

There are so many "free" credit report sites out there with odious names like "Triple Advantage" that con you into paying a monthly fee to monitor your credit rating. Credit Karma is free with no weird issues. I do suspect the information is less detailed than some other sites... but there are no costs involved. No mysterious charges showing up after you thought you got something free.

It's not 5 stars though because it could be better. My credit score swings between 720 and 800+ mostly depending on my balances. If I have a higher balance one month then it can go down. I haven't used the tax services they have advertised. I think I will stick with TurboTax.

Common Sense Media

Common Sense Media

7/11/16

In nearly every situation, Common Sense Media provides well-written yet succinct critiques of movies, games, music, and even websites. Unlike most other "family review" sites, they do not have an extreme Christian bias and will review any movie with an open mind. They give two ratings... one is mostly for parents, which is the recommend age for the movie.

It is very detailed and not just a rating like PG or PG-13... they will specifically explain that one movie is good for 11 and up and another might be 14 and up.

I do have one minor issue with them... they decided to give the website HomestarRunner.com a score of "15+", implying that the site would be inappropriate for anyone under 15. While I do agree with the 4/5 they gave for H*Rs quality... the fact that they think that the Brothers Chaps mostly harmless collection of flash cartoons is only for older teens and adults makes me wonder if they even watched them.

But besides that whiny rant, I actually enjoy using this site to see what they think of things. They can be trusted in most cases.

Steam.com

Steam

Steam as a web service is very good, but the UI can be a bit clunky. Especially if you are going to a link to Steam.com which will often force you to log into your Steam account even if you are already logged in elsewhere.

I guess anime fans are more passionate because you will be overloaded with anime examples, no matter the trope. I don't really have much of an interest in anime because I never got into it, so I mostly use it for video game tropes.

It would be nice if they had more examples I could relate to but it is amusing anyway.

Youthink

A decent site. It can be highly addictive, though it's not nearly as active as it was 5-6 years ago, which kind of sucks. Still, good fun. Would be 5 stars if they'd revert to their old poll-centric format, and dropped the failed attempt at social networking.

FanGraphs

FanGraphs

FanGraphs is a good resource overall, but their site can be buggy and doesn't always work as intended.

Baseball Prospectus lacks the depth you'll find on FanGraphs, but the site is more reliable.

Baseball-reference.com

Baseball-reference

1/19/18

Baseball-reference has been around for a long time. I used it 18 years ago when it was "bigbadbaseball.com" and it's stayed about the same. It's an excellent resource for looking up baseball players. They used to have an "ELORater" that let fans compare two players and then rank which one was better. It was fun, but the webmaster decided to pull the plug.

This is a good source for baseball stats but if you are looking for detailed analysis, you should go to FanGraphs. The blogs that are linked to by Baseball-Reference [not directly on their site] on the player pages are often garbage that no one should read.

It's a good thing you can't smell a webmaster through the web, because if you did, this site would make you retch.

It could be a good source for econ news but sadly it broke down in June 2016 and is stuck there.

It's kind of like the Drudge Report with shoddier design but less bias.
