limits on outstanding side bets

by

new rule

over the last 6 months, a little over 30% of the users who quit the site did so citing failure to follow up on side bets, or guys who had too many side bets outstanding, etc. as the reason. we have been losing users on CSC because players haven’t been playing by the rules of the game, making it less fun for everyone.

as of today, the site will no longer allow new comparisons with users who have more than 10 outstanding side bets.

you can check your side bets by going here:

https://www.cocksizecontest.com/sidebets/

if you have fulfilled a side bet, and the guy you owe it to won’t clear it, send me a message with a link to the site feed item for the comparison in question as well as the relevant trophy pic (if applicable) and i’ll clear it for you.

and as always: if you notice any bugs or the site acting weird or whatever, let me know!

but what if i can’t get the guy to mark it as complete?

first off, it is already the case that if the other user hasn’t logged on in the previous month, the side bet is no longer counted by the site.

second, don’t be That Guy who ignores other people who ask you to mark a bet as complete. just click the damn button and make it easy on all of us.

so what do i have to do to get a side bet removed by the admin?

just send me a message with the link to the completed compare.

  • if you can prove you did it (e.g. send me a link to a trophy pic), i’ll mark it complete for you
  • if there’s disagreement over whether it’s been done and the bet is worded vaguely or in a manner that’s impossible to prove whether it’s been done or not (e.g. “as discussed” or “skype”), i will mark it as complete
  • but i will leave it there if it’s something concrete where it’s a clear case of the loser backing out of a bet made in good faith

this means that i will assume the loser paid up if he said he did, unless there’s reason that he didn’t. (e.g. side bet is “trophy pic with …” and the loser hasn’t submitted a trophy pic at all)

so for the future: if you want a side bet where the loser can’t wiggle out by getting the admin to clear it, include trophy pic proof.

@IAmTheOne: Wow, there are so many people who won't be able to compare now !

10 weeks ago

@sfkid: the intent is good, but there are lots of issues with this. first off, how can someone prove that they've done a bet that isn't a trophy pic? if it's a bet involving skype, it could turn into a he said/he said argument that's impossible to solve.

10 weeks ago

@sfkid: @admin, you'll either get swamped with emails, or you'll have many, many people on the site stop comparing or stop doing sidebets. please rethink this.

10 weeks ago

@admin: i expect i'll be swamped with emails at first, then things will settle out

10 weeks ago

@sfkid: other issues: what if a user won't clear a bet, despite being asked? what if a user won't provide an email/kik/skype address if the bet involves sending a pic?

@lkg2jacpa: eactly - I have tried and guys wont/dont reply

10 weeks ago

@admin: if the guy won't respond, i'll contact him once, and if he doesn't reply, i'll clear it myself

10 weeks ago

@admin: if the bet is vague or unproveable, i'll just clear it, and that can be the penalty for writing vague or unproveable side bets

10 weeks ago

@sfkid: @admin, that makes sense, but why give yourself all that extra work? seems like a very time-intensive way to police things.

10 weeks ago

@IAmTheOne: That makes sense to dosomething about the people who have like 50+ sidebets they will never do (because until now a undone sidebet didn't have any impact), but 10 is really low no ?

10 weeks ago

@admin: i think 10's an okay number. 3-4 unpaid bets, that could happen easy. 6-7, yeah if you're lazy about it. 10+? time to pay up.

10 weeks ago

@IAmTheOne: Well, that's true for those who starts now with 0 ^^ But for all those who starts at 5 or more, that's already close :-P

10 weeks ago

@admin: everyone starts at 0

@IAmTheOne: And that's going to be a lots of works for those who have like 20+ - they will probably never comes back

10 weeks ago

@admin: people are already leaving and not coming back because they feel cheated by those people

10 weeks ago

@IAmTheOne: Well, I mean people who have now around 5 unfullfilled side bets

10 weeks ago

@IAmTheOne: Well, may be - you have the stats, you know better than me

10 weeks ago

@admin: no, for certain. ~ 30% of the guys who closed their accounts in the last few months did so mentioning guys not paying side bets or having dozens unpaid as the reason

10 weeks ago

@sbatl: I'll call myself out: I have a sh!t load of bets I owe. It's a mix of bets that were fulfilled before there was a counter, people not responding, and my own laziness. This will motivate me to take care of my part and will have to pester those that fall into the other category.

10 weeks ago

@Tommy: What happens when you have sidebets with some people that you've been trying to do and they ignore your messages or come online once a month for 5min?

10 weeks ago

@admin: if you can show me you've done it (i.e. trophy pic) i'll clear it. if it's too vague or it's unproveable one way or the other, i'll clear it, and we will consider that the penalty for writing unclear side bets.

10 weeks ago

@Tommy: But what if it's a skype sidebet that you've been trying to do for months and you get ignored?

10 weeks ago

@admin: that counts as "unproveable"

10 weeks ago

@andy: Mafe life easy and just marked all of my outstanding ones complete even if not received. If I owe you message me and it will be done.

10 weeks ago

@voyexhib: I have sent a message to everyone I owe, hopefully they respond! If not, perhaps there should be a public payment allwed to satisfy the bet?! lol

10 weeks ago

@sfkid: @admin, would a $50 donation to the site be a worthwhile amount to forgive undone sidebets? :-p

10 weeks ago

@admin: it's not me who has to forgive! it's the other guy

@drakey: There needs to be an amnesty on ancient side bets. I have four that I owe, and three of those are from more than three years ago. I obviously can't remember if they were done or not, and certainly no evidence exists.

@Aceofspades: Wouldn't a suitable way to produce proof of a skype bet to include a screenshot of the conversation time with whomever is the winner? Not one that includes pics, but a conversation time with (insert sn here) for 17:08 enough?

10 weeks ago

@karunda: Iam sure that wont work. I have old games who Ive got never an answer. With this rule we need another rule, that after two year or so the sidebets are automatically deleted... Iam sure we will have in future much less sidebets here esp. from the smaller ones.

proposed new rules

by

I’m considering adding the following new rules:

  • Measuring tape must end at the 0 mark (if the tape extends past the 0 mark)
    • There is already a rule that says that the 0 mark can’t go past the base of the dick. Tapes of this kind make it more difficult to judge.
    • I constantly get people complaining about pics with tapes like this saying that it’s going past the 0 mark.
    • The rules also say that a user’s cock must be pointing out, not down, and this kind of tape would be tricky to fold to 90 degrees and keep it flat against one’s dick in keeping with the rules, so it’s better to just get rid of these tapes entirely.
    • E.g. the following tape would not be allowed

  • Any people who are naked or having sex in a gallery pic or trophy pic must be a member of CSC
    • I am uncomfortable with having naked pics or pics of people having sex on CSC, if they don’t know that they’re on the site
    • This applies most to pics that include face
    • This also applies to pictures of women. I have always had misgivings about hosting pics that include women, since I have no way to know if they even know that this site exists, let alone consent to having their pics here, so I think I’m going to veto pics of women.
    • One “exception” to this rule would be that if you’re naked on a nude beach, for example, and there are non-naked people in the background, that would be fine to submit. (There’s no expectation of privacy from non-naked people in public.)

Both of these new rules would mean that some pics have to come down. What are your thoughts?

23 weeks ago | tips received: 0 BTC | send tip (?)

@doti: Seems reasonable

23 weeks ago

@Dionysos: I agree. For exemple, about the pics... some users upload photos (impress me pics) where we can even see face and cock, but the question is: is the face or the user's cock ?. Some can upload face photos (from anyone that isn't an user in CSC) just to earn more points and perhaps without permission of the person displaying his face.

23 weeks ago

@PlayTime28: Sounds reasonable. How would that work? If you upload a gallery or trophy pic with a third person, you have to add their username and that person has to confirm as well?

23 weeks ago

@admin: trophy pics are already like that, where the users involved are tagged, but i'm thinking that in cases where there's gallery pics, there will be mandatory tagging

23 weeks ago

@bigone99: Sounds reasonable. What about guys that have girls in their pics?

@serbperv: agree

23 weeks ago

@ryan123: I mean how do we know who is who in the realtime pic? Is there a way to know who is on the left and right

23 weeks ago

@Marcusgirth: Hello admin, ok for the tape rule. But for "Any people who are naked or having sex in a gallery pic or trophy pic must be a member of CSC " it will imply retiring a lots of pics. You rule should be valid if the face of the person appears on the picture. Also beacause sometimes there are pictures with girsl and they cannot be member of CSC...

23 weeks ago

@Obelisco: @Tommy I don't understand too

23 weeks ago

@Obelisco: zero is zero, anyway!

23 weeks ago

@voyexhib: I think that anyone who's face is in the pic needs to be a member. Otherwise does it matter? How could you tell who it is?

23 weeks ago

@impudicus: I like the proposed change. I had my pics hijacked and it took a lot of time and effort to get them pulled.

23 weeks ago

@Fr84: i agree... the problem is most for face .. sure

23 weeks ago

@mutunus: Face or not, I wouldn't want my pics posted without my permission. And I don't see a good way to get permission from someone who's not on the site.

23 weeks ago

@admin: i have added some clarification to the post. further thoughts?

23 weeks ago

@Fr84: so.. not accept woman, and full naked man (if he is not clearly a csc user). is it correct? :-) and to be more severe with measure pics.

23 weeks ago

@Marcusgirth: "This also applies to pictures of women. I have always had misgivings about hosting pics that include women, since I have no way to know if they even know that this site exists, let alone consent to having their pics here, so I think I’m going to veto pics of women." am sure that many women now about the site, and isn,'t this discriminating ?

23 weeks ago

@Inochi: @marcusgirth I mean, its a site about conparing cocks. Its pretty clear that its meant for people with cocks

23 weeks ago

@mutunus: Agreed. I'd say the only way we'd be discriminating is if we excluded certain people who have penises, like trans people.

23 weeks ago

@Marcusgirth: @Inochi....that's true ! But, we talk about impress or private pics meaning that heteros will not be bale to post "in action" pics as homos will be able too do so.

23 weeks ago

@mutunus: You can link to an external site on your profile. I have my tumblr.

23 weeks ago

@mutunus: Gay guys will still be limited to "in action" pics with other guys on the site, so they'll lose pics too.

23 weeks ago

@BlindTiger: While I appreciate the idea behind the new rules, and I understand the thought behind liability and all that, you are ruling out a lot of interesting picture opportunities, mainly ones that may involve MFM comparisons. If you have two guys and a girl, even if both guys are members, the mere fact that there's a girl in the pic disqualifies it. I'm fairly neutral about it, to be honest, but I can see it taking away from the fun of the site.

23 weeks ago

@Fr84: I think that hide face can be an option ;)

23 weeks ago

@BlindTiger: I agree with the hidden face, that gives a good compromise.

@Marcusgirth: Hello, I find th enew proposed rules (not for the tapes) too restrictive, really as long as you do not see the face we should not forbid

@dadaboy: Well guys, think of it this way: Would you like to have a sex pic that includes your face on some site that you do not know of? I would not, so I do appreciate the changed rules.

23 weeks ago

@sfkid: i agree with @dadaboy and others. it's about consent. and short of having a waiver that people who aren't on the site have to sign before a pic with them in it is uploaded, the @admin's proposed rules are the only good option.

impress pic gallery dickstarter 2016

by

The feature that CSC users have been begging me for the most over the last few years has always been for a gallery of impress pics, instead of a single one.

Caving to public pressure (and also wanting it myself), I started planning on how to make this happen. 🙂

The new rules for the coming gallery will be:

  • The old “impress me” pic category will be eliminated along with the “private pic” category.
    • Photos previously submitted to these categories will be removed from the site.
  • Users will be allowed to upload pics to their gallery only after they have approved length and girth pics on their profile.
  • Users will be allowed to upload up to 3 pics in their “gallery,” all of which will still be subject to the standard CSC rules.
    • Users will NOT be allowed to upload pics showing measurements that were rejected on a technicality from the length and girth categories, for example.
  • Users who have supported CSC financially will be allowed to upload as many as 10 pics to their gallery for up to 1 year after their donation
    • There is no minimum donation. Donate a penny, donate a million bucks, same deal. (Please donate a million bucks.)
    • In order to continue to have the ability to upload pics after the 3-pic limit, another donation of any amount will extend this privilege another year.
    • At the end of the year, pics #4-10 will NOT be deleted if a user has uploaded them, but they won’t be able to upload a new pic to the gallery until they’re under the limit of 3 pics for non-donors.
  • Pics submitted as “private” will be hidden from everyone except the admin, the user who submitted it, and any users who have been granted access by the user who submitted it.
    • These pics will NOT be awarded manhood
  • Pics submitted as “impress me” will be awarded manhood based on the current “impress me” pic rules
    • Because points are being awarded, members will not be allowed to remove approved “impress me” pics for two weeks after approval.
    • After two weeks, “impress me” pics may be marked as “private.”
    • Pics that are removed and re-submitted will not be awarded points a second time.
    • Users may submit as many or as few pics to the gallery as they like, and may mark them as private or public at their own discretion.

As you can imagine, this would take a fair amount of work on my part, and so I’d need to take a weekend off in order to make it happen. I may also need to upgrade the hard disc our host provides for the site, so I’ll need a bit of floating cash to do that too. Unfortunately, I can’t pay for a weekend off or for an upgrade to the storage on the server out of my own pocket.

Hence, I will be crowdfunding this upgrade to CSC. If you’ve been around here before, you know the drill. We call it a “Dickstarter.”

how to make it happen

To make a donation toward the new member gallery, click where it says, “send tip” at the bottom of this post on the site feed. Don’t use the “donate bitcoins” button at the right of the site feed. Use the “send tip” button on this post. If it doesn’t give you 1BR1bHacR334mpGoWQ4RGT8LhZv8vVvUw1 as a bitcoin address, you clicked the wrong button. The “send tip” link will show you a bitcoin address to which you can send funds. After you have sent your donation, click where it says, “click here when sent” so that the site can check for new funds. I cannot, I’m afraid, accept credit cards. Here’s why.

This is a big upgrade, and a lot of people have been begging me to do it for a long time, so I’m setting the goal for this Dickstarter at $500. At today’s exchange rate, that works out to 0.8254 BTC. As soon as the bitcoin address (1BR1bHacR334mpGoWQ4RGT8LhZv8vVvUw1) has received at least 0.8254 BTC, I will set aside the very next weekend to upgrade the site.

“But I don’t have $500!”

Yes, none of us has $500 lying around to send to random websites. But if every guy who showed up on the site in the last week gave $0.40, that would cover it. There’s lots of guys on here, some guys make more, some make less money. Some guys make more use of CSC, some guys make less. Send in what you think the new upgrade would be worth to you!

Hit me up if you have any questions!

The end of the year is coming, so it’s time to spruce up your CSC profiles and start the new year with a fresh, new bulge pic.

The whole point of this challenge is to raise the bar a bit on the quality of bulge pics. So please do NOT upload a new bulge pic if it is worse than your old one.

To enter the contest, you must:

  1. Upload a brand-new bulge pic (don’t recycle an old bulge pic) between December 1 and 31, 2015
  2. After your bulge pic has been approved and it is live on the site, send @admin an email (admin@cocksizecontest.com) with your username in the subject line with “December 2015 Bonus Manhood Challenge” to be be considered for entry
  3. Your new bulge pic must remain up at least until January 31, 2016
  4. That’s it

I will award different amounts of points based on the following criteria:

Criterion Manhood
Cropped too close – 50
Too dark – 100
Out of focus / blurry – 100
Clothing too loose – 100
Showing off physique (flexing, posing, etc.++) + 500
Effective use of lighting and composition (subjective) + 500 to 1000
Creativity + 500 to 1000
Animated GIF + 1000
Fun gear (leather, singlets, jocks, etc.++) + 1500
Public place (pool, gym, locker room) + 2500
Public place and not alone (e.g. getting someone to take your pic at a beach with people in the background) + 3000
Partial face (chin only, huge sunglasses, etc.) + 3500
Full face clearly visible + 5000

“but i can’t do that!”

I understand that not everyone has an impressive physique to show off, or the ability to get one. That’s fine. You are not being penalized for that. In a similar way, not everyone has the funds to get themselves leather or athletic gear to pose in, and not everyone is in a situation where they can post a face pic.

This is why there are many ideas on this list. You’re not supposed to try to do all of them. You can pick and choose which ones you want to include in your new and improved bulge pics.

other tips

Try to recruit a friend to take this photo. I’m not saying selfies will be excluded or anything, but it’s easier to make everything happen with your hands free, and it will allow you to be a bit more creative, and to consider the following factors that all go together to make a good photo.

If you can, think about the lighting of your pic. There’s not much you can do about this if you’re taking your pic in a gym locker room or something, but it’s something you’ll want to think about anyway. It may influence which mirror you choose to take your pic, or the time of day you go, for example.

Use a natural light source if possible, rather than a flash or the light in your house. Try not to be “back-lit” (this means having the source of light behind the subject, casting a shadow him), but rather stand so that you’re facing the source of the light, or have it come slightly from the side.

Also think about the composition of the photo. You’ll generally want your bulge to be centered, but aligning the focus of attention along the 2/3rds line in the photo can also be aesthetically pleasing. Try not to have the main subject of your pic (your bulge) in a corner or at the very side.

Cropping your photo should be done judiciously. You want to keep the focus on the subject of the photo (your bulge and your body), but you also do not want to lose the context of the photo if that adds something to the composition as a whole.

Get rid of distracting elements from the background. If your pic is in your bedroom, maybe move the pile of dirty clothing so it’s not in the frame of the pic. But if you’re at a beach, pool or gym, the people in the background might be something you want to keep in.

Make sure that your pic is in sharp focus, and that there is nothing on the lens. Think about color and contrast to your advantage. (Black and white photos are not permitted.)

If you’re doing an animated GIF, all these tips about lighting and composition apply as well as the following: Do not try to stitch together multiple photos into a GIF. The result will be jarring. Take a 3.5 second video and convert it to a GIF. Watch it yourself to see how it looks when it loops.

You only have 3.5 seconds. Don’t be overly ambitious with your GIF idea, but that’s enough time to catch an adjustment of a pair of briefs, a wink, flexing, etc.

Basically, take this as an opportunity to refresh your bulge pic and make it a fucking piece of art, rather than just something you did to activate your account. If you have ideas about other things you’d like to see in bulge pics that should be awarded manhood during this contest (whether or not you plan on doing them yourself), contact me.

new site feature: team posts

by

starting today, you can now add posts to teams that you’re a part of!

how do i post in a team?

  • join the team
  • navigate to the team page
  • type a post in the team post box, press enter or click the button

who can see the post?

  • members of the team will see the post in their site feed
  • members of the team will see the post on the team page
  • anyone who is sent the link to the post will be able to

these posts aren’t private team posts, per se, but non-members of the team will have to go looking for them if they want to see them.

why would i want to post in a team rather than on the site feed?

some things are group-specific, and posting it to the site feed can just be annoying to the bulk of users who see it, rather than useful.

for example, you might want to post a message in a group for cam users if you’re looking to show off. or you might post in a geography-specific group about a meetup at a particular place.

what are the rules?

all the same CSC rules apply to team posts as they do to regular posts: no personal info, no spamming, etc. let me know if you have any questions!

November bonus manhood challenge!

by

Ok guys, it’s time for another bonus manhood challenge! For this one, it’s a variation on two old ones.

Starting Nov 1, 2015, I will be awarding up to 5000 manhood depending on how daring you want to be! For this challenge you need to post your CSC profile URL or the QR to your page somewhere public, this could be a urinal, public bathroom stall, or if you want to be even more daring, a public bulletin board or something of that nature. Now here’s for the catch: you must take a picture proving that you posted your URL or QR code and email it to me by Dec 1, 2015 (admin@cocksizecontest.com) AND your fully hard cock must be in the picture as well.

more simply put

  • Photo must be clear, reasonably well-lit
  • Writing must be big enough to be legible, must say www.cocksizecontest.com/@yourusername
    • In the case that you posted a QR code, the code in the photo must be big enough to be recognizable as your own
  • Your hard cock MUST be in the photo as well
  • Must receive photo in my email inbox (admin@cocksizecontest.com) before Dec 1, 2015, midnight EST
  • Bonus points for creativity in the photo are possible, but make sure to nail down the four points above first

I’ll be posting these pics to the CSC Twitter account and also on the site, so don’t include anything in the photo you don’t want posted for all to see.

do’s and don’t’s

  • Use your best judgment when putting these stickers around.
  • E.g. a great place to leave a QR code sticker is on the porcelain of a urinal in a gay bar.
    • Easy to remove for the people working there
    • Target audience ++
  • You could put your QR code on billboards that are already covered in fliers
  • Put it in a public transit area that’s already been vandalized
  • Put it overtop of a poster that’s an advertisement for something else
    • The poster is temporary anyway
  • Bad ideas for places to put your QR code include: children’s playgrounds, elementary schools, priceless exhibitions of art that are open to the public
    • Basically, I don’t want to get angry emails from people complaining that a CSC QR code sticker ended up on the Mona Lisa’s face or something
  • Also: do not cover up traffic signs or anything stupid like that—that’s actually dangerous
  • Put it up on protective boards / fences in construction areas
    • Will be taken down when the job’s done
  • Leave the QR code sticker up after you’ve taken the pic. The whole point is to try to get more people to visit CSC.

hard rules

  • Pic must not be edited in any way (no Instagram filters, no watermarks, and certainly don’t photoshop your QR code into places where you didn’t actually stick it)
  • QR code must be the one downloaded from your CSC profile
  • Try to make the QR code big enough in the pic that we can tell that it’s actually your CSC profile URL, and not something else
    • It doesn’t actually have to be big enough to be scanned
    • But we will look over it to be sure that it isn’t obviously a QR code for something else
    • If you’re worried about this, you can do a series of photos back up from the QR code, or take a 10 second video backing away from it or something
  • QR code must be 5 cm x 5 cm minimum
  • You may submit up to 5 photos for review by the moderators
  • Must be in a public place

new shortened profile and team URL’s

by

Just an FYI about a completely cosmetic change to CSC. For a while now, users on CSC have had the ability to automatically insert a link to a user’s profile in your private messages or site feed posts / comments by putting the @ sign before the user’s name.

E.g. @admin would be automatically changed to @admin

I have added a similar tool for linking automatically to teams.

E.g. ~nyc is now automatically changed to ~nyc

To accompany this, I have made a small change to the way that URL’s are handled by CSC so that links to profiles and teams are shortened.

http://www.cocksizecontest.com/@admin is now the same thing as http://www.cocksizecontest.com/member/admin/ and http://www.cocksizecontest.com/~nyc is now the same thing as http://www.cocksizecontest.com/teams/nyc/

august RT pic bonus manhood challenge

Realtime compare pic

Realtime compare pic

In an attempt to reverse the deterioration of the quality of realtime photos on CSC, for the entire month of August, if you submit a realtime comparison that looks exactly like the example illustration (attached), you will be eligible to request 2500 manhood in addition to the regular 5000 manhood for doing the realtime comparison.

What counts as “exactly like” the example illustration?

Your pic must meet all of the following criteria to be considered for the 2500 mh bonus:

  • Submitted between Aug 1 and Sep 1, 2015
  • The photo must be taken from “in front,” not “from above”
    • This means that you will probably have to use a tripod and self-timer
    • All four of the guys’ legs must be pointing toward the bottom of the frame of the pic
  • The entire hand holding the realtime card must be visible
  • The text on the card must be legible and exactly correct
    • Write “www.cocksizecontest.com” out fully and write both usernames
    • I recommend using a sharpie
  • Both members must be standing next to each other
  • Both members’ cocks must be fully visible
  • Photo must be in focus, well-lit, and high enough resolution

The following I’m not picky about:

  • Face either visible or not
  • Cock either hard or soft
  • Loser may be giving the winner the finger or not
  • Washboard abs or not 😛

Remember, the point of a realtime pic is to prove that it happened. It’s really easy to photoshop a card in from the side, if the hand holding the card doesn’t have to show. Same thing goes for a cock if you don’t have to show the person it’s connected to.

Looking forward to seeing your submissions! 🙂


Update: I’ve heard from a few people objecting, “But I think it’s hotter when realtime pics have the cocks side-by-side!”

The official response to this is, “That’s what the Trophy Gallery is for.”

Seriously, you can upload unlimited trophy pics from a RT compare and post them to the Trophy Gallery, and then post the link to the trophy in the comments of the RT site feed item afterward for all to see.
