I don't want to receive so many system messages from BarebackBastards
The site automatically sends out notifications when a video of yours receives a comment, when somebody wrote you a personal message and other things. If you do not wish to receive these notifications (and users who uploaded lots of videos know how much this can be ;-) - then go here: "Dashboard" from the top navigation bar, then go "Edit Notifications" in the list. There you can select and deselect everything you wish to receive notification mails for - or not.
I didn't receive a confirmation mail, why?
When you sign up for an account, the system sends you a verification email with a link that you need to click. Only when you click that link you're account is activated. If you do not receive this mail please check your spam folder. Also, if you have a spamblocker like Bluebottle or Earthlink, make sure you put BarebackBastards.com on your list of accepted mail addresses. You can always have a new confirmation mail sent to you.
How do I watch and save videos and photos?
Watching videos and photos on BarebackBastards couldn't be easier. Just come to the site and browse around, or search for subjects that interest you. To save your favorites for later, you need to click the '+' button underneath the videos you want to watch later. You can also create playlists to group favorite videos together into your own personal categories.
When playing the videos, the player stops before the video is finished. What can I do?
You can see how far the video has loaded by the grey bar moving. If the video plays faster than it loads, just stop the video for a while and let the video fully load.
How do I rate a video or picture?
When you open a video or picture, under the player you see a button with a "thumb up" or "thumb down". If nobody has given a rating then the stars are blank, if users have already rated the item, then you see the percentage of all the votes. To add your vote, simply click on the thumb up or down. You can only give one vote for each video or picture. Voting is really important.
How can I contact a user?
If you want to get in touch with a user on BarebackBastards and you only know the username, just type it in the search field on the start page. Then select "Users" symbol from the drop-down menu and hit "Search". The user should appear in the result list. You can click on the username to open his profile. There is a link saying "Send me a private message" - there you go.
What are tags?
Tags are keywords that describe videos and photos. For example, a contest video might be tagged with "bareback", "fuck" and "cum". Tags help you find new videos you might like to watch, and also help you label videos you upload so that other people can find them more easily. The larger the tag appears in the list, the more videos use that tag.
How do I remove a video or photo?
To remove one of your media files, simply log in, go to "Dashboard", then click "My Video" from the list, select the video you want to remove and click on the 'Delete' button in the video thumbnail you'd like to remove. You are only able to remove media files that you have uploaded yourself.
How do I change my password?
To change your password:
1. Login to your BarebackBastards account.
2. Click on the 'Dashboard' then select 'Edit Account' from the list.
3. Type in a new password in the field and type the same password in the confirmation box - this way we ensure that you don't make a typing error.
4. Click the 'Account update' at the bottom of the page.
How do I clear my search history on BarebackBastards?
BarebackBastards doesn't save your searches, but your browser probably does. If you don't want to see your previous search terms displayed in the search field, you need to clear the search history in your browser.
Can I change my username?

How do I edit or delete a comment I made on some one else's video?
