Review of New Ciao Homepage 2013 by 1st2thebar

Advantages: The Ciao logo is visible
Disadvantages: Template usage, subliminal messaging highlighting reflection

I confess; I was an emotional wreck last Friday evening; watching Children in Need and the endless conveyor-belt of presenters doing their stint for the TV event of the year. Look what’s happened due to many years of ‘Children in Need’ – they’re still in ... Read review

not my choice
Review of New Ciao Homepage 2013 by KellySimons

Advantages: Its a homepage
Disadvantages: nothing special. not something memorable

I found a new homepage awaiting today. A young girl looking through the window of a train she was travelling on. Its not a choice I'd have made. My kids are grown ups now so I've done the kid thing. It wasnt in anyway offensive. Its bright and easy on ... Read review

Am I in the right place?
Review of New Ciao Homepage 2013 by pgn0

Advantages: makes you look twice
Disadvantages: a little, er, atmospheric

New Homepage for Ciao! My quick flit to www.ciao.co.uk after dinner this evening was greeted with a thought-provoking image, one of a little girl staring pensively out of a train window. "Am I in the right place?", I asked myself. (I ... Read review

No Christmas market, no - however being the busiest day of the year on our roads / rails / flight-paths, maybe staring out of the window from a moving train is strangely appropriate. I came to the "refresh" a month behind the rest of you - sadly a new home page does not a new site maketh. R. by RICHADA
I think the homepage is operating at an intellectual level I can only dream of achieving. Personally, I fail to see the link between children in trains and reviews. Unless you're reviewing First Great Western. Or you're a child. by mdall899

The Ciao Yankee doodle dandy
Review of Member feedback on Ciao Quick Reviews by thedevilinme

Advantages: I have nothing else to do
Disadvantages: This review will be deleted, ironically

I hate short reviews, even the ones that are thought out, just an easy way to make money on opinion sites. I also hate that ciao don’t do a lot to stop the obvious short review churn and, often, those members get to keep their accounts to constantly achie ... Read review

Review of Rewards at Ciao by thedevilinme

Advantages: PF pays well

Valentines Day : the poll tax of romance!
Review of People & relationships by thedevilinme

Advantages: Lucky in love
Disadvantages: All out of love

It’s one of life’s great ironies that the supposedly romantic days of Valentines and Christmas time are the most likely events to cause lovers to split up, on-in-three couples who do separate in the west citing for divorce in January and February. That’s ... Read review

I thought I was cynical! Still some interesting points. John by Coloneljohn
You are so much the cynic - but there is some truth to this - at least for some women - but maybe you need to look for someone kind instead of looking like a supermodel? Not all women care about money you know at least not beyond making sure enough is left over to pay the rent and put food on the table. Hope cupid hits you with an arrow this Valentines day and you find just the right person :) by Marge3781

Heads They Win, Tails You Lose
Review of Ciao Competitions by plipplopfromdooyoo

Advantages: Lots of 'em, reasonable prizes, now pretty much schmooze proof
Disadvantages: Pointless and they don't reward good writing

Review-writing sites can be a little competitive. The prevalence of statistics, dot colours and other supposed statuses engenders quite a lot of competitive behaviour, whether the participants are prepared to admit it or not, and the site owners tend to u ... Read review

Can't say I've taken any interest in the competitions on Ciao, but should I every decide to it sounds as though they are (at least a little) better run than they used to be. by jonathanb
Product of the week – I agree that the new rules are a great improvement. Frankly I don't care how the products or chosen or why – but I don't think the £5 prize is too much. For those of us who generally make very little from the site (not because we're poor writers, but because we don't engage tactically or actively with the community side – having been burned on that score – or because we specialise is poor-payment categories) the occasional fiver is a welcome boost. / Current Issue: Again… I agree with everything except that payment objection. Non-product pieces are unpaid on Ciao, I think the current debate is partial recompense for this. / Short but Good is the only category I've ever won in… I tend to be verbose, but I also tend to like longer more considered reviews, so each to their own on this one. / Good Writing? No website around actually rewards "good writing" – but then that itself would be a subjective viewpoint. Define "good" in that context? I think Ciao have addressed the worst abuses of their comps (the voting aspect) and I'm happy with that. Lx by hiker

Waste of time!
Review of Ciao Surveys by Isis_moon

Advantages: (supposed) money for your time answering questions
Disadvantages: The lask of payment for said answers!

Disadvantages: 50 hours of 'customer service'

If you enjoy waiting on hold, getting lied to, ignored and then hung up on, on a daily basis for months on end, buy a Dell, they are really great at all the above! I bought a Dell Laptop, and without any exaggeration at all, spent 30 hours on the phone, w ... Read review
