The Give to Receive Ethic

In a nutshell, your question will need your answer or vote before you can expect others to pass a vote. Conversely, no user can view the results of a Jar without they themselves dropping a vote to the post.

O To put up a post the user will have to drop against it.
O To view a post the user will have to drop against it
O To comment or view a comment on a post the user would have had to have dropped against that post
O To swing vote the user will have to pass a comment for the reason for their change of heart.
O To filter results within the jar, the user will have had to have completed the corresponding fields in their profile.

And so on.

Enter as much or as little information about you as you would like in the Planet Jar profile section.  It’s all confidential and will only be used to refine filters and pinning options within PlanetJar making your post more effective for you. The control is always yours.

You may choose not to even select your gender of enter your date of birth. This will mean that you cannot filter by either of these profile settings. “So what!” I hear you say. Well you may want to post a question that is only relevant if put into context with those two profile settings. For example you may want to enter the post below:

Those of you who have read Fifty Shades of Grey?

Not a problem in its self, however if you are only interested in how many men have read Fifty Shades of Grey that are aged 45 to 65 and you haven’t completed these fields in your profile you won’t be able to get the exact answer to your question.

Of course all your profile information is confidential, You still have complete anonymity and with this anonymity there is no need for anything else but honesty.

Make sure you construct your question correctly to obtain the exact answer you need or just follow the wizard.
