Dear Epinions Member,

After a challenging 2013, Epinions will no longer maintain community related operations of its website. We are proud that we were able to serve as a facilitator of shared experiences and thoughtful dialogue over the past 15 years. However, several obstacles, such as declining participation, have deeply affected our business and forced us to make this difficult decision.

We would like to thank each of you for your time and dedication. You have supported us through the good times and the bad. Our community’s passion and uniqueness has made our website truly special.

As of February 25, 2014, we will begin to disable the Epinions community features.

Here’s what it means for the Epinions community:

    • No new content will be added to the Epinions website as of February 25, 2014.
    • The ability to write a review, comment, and rate will be disabled on February 25, 2014.
    • The last Income Share payment will be issued on March 6, 2014 via PayPal.
    • The option to export all of your Epinions reviews will be made available to you.
    • You will still be able to login to your Epinions account to check your balance and use the Epinions message boards until March 25, 2014.

After March 25, 2014, all Epinions community features will be removed and/or disabled from the Epinions website.
This was not an easy decision to make and we thank you all for your contributions to Epinions. While we must change, we truly hope your desire to connect, write reviews and share experiences with one another stays alive and well.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to reference our FAQ or contact us.

(Thanks to sleeper54 for allowing us to borrow the name of his write-off.)

The February Lean & Mean Review Challenge is back and challenges you! Continue to write product reviews as you do, but keep it short and to the point. We want these reviews to be lean, but at the same time informative, and less than 500 words.

Here is what you can win:
  • The first place winner will receive $300 in eRoyalties.
  • All other winners will receive $20 in eRoyalties.

    You will need to register each review that qualifies for entry.
