There are many questions in the world of strip clubs but I seem to get the same ones a lot. I have collected questions regarding strip clubs, clubbing, dancers, and even this website, and put them into this FAQ page. There's no way that I can cover everything here but it's a good way for you to get started in getting to know more about this industry and subject matter.
Please check here and read carefully before you ask me about something already answered here.
Thanks for conserving bandwidth on the Internet.
When registering, you will be asked for your "profile address". This is part of the URL that will be your profile page. For example, if you enter "clubber" (without the quotes), then your profile page will be located at:
Notice that you do NOT enter the entire URL, only the name at the end of your profile URL. Please note that you CANNOT change this once you have registered. So if you are a dancer and think you might be changing your stage name, you might want to use something else. Use this profile address to let your Z-friends know where to find your profile.
When registering, you should receive an email asking you to click on a link to verify your email address. However, depending on your email account, you may not receive this verification email.
First, please wait at least 20 minutes for your email. Sometimes, out mail server, or your mail server can be busy and might take a little time to process the email. If you do not get it in that time, please look in your spam or auto-deleted folder. Sometimes your email server will think that this verification email is spam. If you still don't get your email, please add our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) your list of accepted emails. For more information on whitelisting, please go here.
If you are on your home page, click on "Edit My Profile" below your profile picture. From other pages, click on "My Profile" at the top of the page. Next, click on the top right corner portion of your profile picture where there is a pen icon. This will take you to your profile edit page.
From here, you can edit your personal information, and upload your profile picture.
If you are on the home page, click on "Forgot Password?" link located below the text box to enter your email address.
If you are on the Member Sign In page, click on the "Forgot Password?" link below the "Sign In" button.
If you can't find any of those pages, but you did somehow manage to find this FAQ page, you can simply go to this page.
Next, enter your email address and press "Send Email." You will get an email with instructions on how to reset your password.
Click on "Settings" at the top right area. Next, click on "Change Password." Now enter your current password, then your new password, then repeat, then click the "Change Password" button.
Click on "Settings" at the top of any screen. Under the "General" tab (default), change the entry for "Email Address." Please be very careful when making this change. If you enter an incorrect email address, you will be locked out of your own account and will not be able to login to your own account.
If you no longer have access to your old email address, sorry, but we cannot change your email address which is used for login because there is no way for me to verify that you are the owner of the account. You will have to re-register and create a new account using your new email address and your old account will become dormant.
If you accidentally entered the wrong email address when registering, please contact me so that I can delete your account.
To close your account, please contact me and I will delete your account for you. Note that this action is irreversible and all the information attached to your account will be permanently deleted.
The reason for not allowing you to delete your own account is in case somebody hacks into your account, they cannot delete your account. This gives you a small level of security to prevent hackers from deleting all your information.
Since there are tons of places to post on the new zbone 2.0, this FAQ answer will help you decide which is the best place to post. Below, you will find a list of places to post (including URL if available), then a description of what to put there, then an example.
1) Your own wall - Below "What's New"
This is a good place to keep your Z-friends up to date on what you are doing. Keep it short and do not use this for long posts because it will get truncated.
Example: Going clubbing tomorrow night. Anybody?
2) Comment on wall posting - Click on "Comment" below posting
Use this to reply or comment on the posting on your friends wall. If you start a new post, they may not realize that it pertains to a previous posting. Keep this short and do not use this for long replies because it will get truncated.
Example: Hell yeah!
3) Club Updates - Go to the specific club and the "Updates" tab is the default view
http://zbone.com/pageshome (find the specific club from here)
Use this to post short questions or comments about the club. Do not post RTRC here since there is a limit to the length of the post and it will get truncated.
Example: Is this place open on Christmas?
4) Comment on Club Updates - Click on "Comment" below Update post.
Use this to reply to somebody's club update post. As with the members own wall, it's better to use this to reply than to start a new post to reduce confusion.
Example: Yes, we are.
5) Club Review - Click on "Reviews" tab on specific club, then "Write a Review"
Use this for real reviews with content about the club, dancers, staff and dances. Include some content helpful to someone that has never been to this club and point out anything that's different compared to other similar clubs. Include other content helpful to someone that has already been to this club. More specifically, do not post RTRC (real time roll calls) here.
Example: This club has been at this location for 20+ years and has many regular customers. However, after the new management takeover, I notice that there are tons of new dancers here. What I like about this place is...
6) Club Discussion - Click on "Discussions" tab on specific club, then "Post New Topic"
Use this for longer questions, comments, and RTRC. There is no limit on the length of each post so this is the proper place for anything longer than a short message.
Example: RTRC 12/20/2011 - [followed by list of dancers]
There are many different topics of discussion that can be posted in here. Use this area for lively longer discussions without any limits in length. For club reviews, if you want to discuss multiple clubs in one post, do it here under "Club Reviews" instead of in the "Reviews" section of a specific club. Also, club reviews here will be a better place if you expect, or want replies, and comments about your review.
Example: I like Club-X because it's closer to me but my favorite dancer is at Club-Y so that's where I've been going. Here is a list of my favorite clubs for this year...
Use this to post articles the same way you would on an online blog. For dancers and even customers, this can be a place to tell your story. This is not the place to post something that requires discussion. Use the forum for that. This is a good place for news related items.
Example: Club-X to open in Torrance next month...
If the topic you are interested in is not in the Forum, take a look in the Groups. If it's not there, you can create your own group. Each group can have their own rules about what the group is for so take a look in the group before chiming in with your post.
Example: Cigar Smokers Group
This is like a public calendar. Post your upcoming events here and you can invite your Z-friends to come to your event.
Example: ZCon at Club-X Sunday night! Be there or be square!
Post here if you are selling something, or have a job to fill at your club.
Example: Used panties for sale - $50
There are a few reasons why you might be having problems uploading pictures.
1) You cannot upload from your smart phone or other mobile device.
2) Your image file must be less than 2MB maximum. If it's larger, please use Photoshop or a similar program to reduce the size of the image. The resolution should be no more than 1024 x 768 to keep the size of the file small.
3) Use the latest version of the browser. The latest version of Internet Explorer is 9. If you are using Windows XP, the latest version of Internet Explorer for XP is not the latest version of the browser. You will have to use a different browser. I recommend you use Chrome, which you can get at:
4) There is a limit of 50MB per regular account for uploaded files. If each of your files are approximately 2MB, you will be able to upload approximately 25 pictures. If you want to upload more pictures, you will have to reduce the size of your pictures or upgrade your account to Premium. To upgrade your account, click on "Settings" at the top.
If you have checked all of these items and still have problems uploading, please contact me.
RTRC (real-time roll call) is a list of dancers that's working at a club posted while the dancers are still there.
Members from the original zbone site are used to going to the reader review board for the RTRC. On the new zbone 2.0, you will find the RTRCs in the club's discussion area. When a RTRC is posted on the discussion area, an update is automatically generated on the club's Update page. If the member has "liked" the club page, the member will also get an update on their wall.
There is a list of the most recent discussion posts (mostly RTRCs) in reverse chronological order, located on the Club home page at:
The list is below the list of recent reviews under the heading "Recent Discussion."
There is another more compact list of the most recent discussion posts located on the members' home page at:
The list is located on the right lower side of the page under the heading "Recent Discussions."

If there are any clubs missing, please contact me and let us know the details. If you are associated with the club, you can create your own club page by clicking on "Clubs," then "Create New Page," then follow the instructions.
There are several ways you can do this. First, click on "Clubs" to get to the main club page. Next, you can type in the city into the text box labeled "Location," or enter the zip code in the same box if you know it. You can optionally enter the distance that you will allow for the list, then click "Search."
You can also click on "Browse Clubs" from the main Clubs page, and scroll down to see a list of "Popular Locations." This is the top 20 cities. The numbers indicate how many clubs are located in that city. Click on any of the listed cities to see the list of clubs.
When viewing the profile of a club, you will see option tabs near the top. Click on "Reviews" to see the reviews left by members regarding this club, including their ratings. Click on "Discussions" to see chatting about this club.
The reviews are opinions by members who give ratings to these clubs. Discussions can be almost anything regarding this club, and is not a review. Instead, discussions could be questions about the club policy, a list of dancers working (also called RTRC or Real Time Roll Call), or just gossip.
To claim your club page, click on "Clubs," then "Claim a Page," then fill out the form. I will review your application and transfer control to your account. After you have claimed the page, you will have control over the club page and will be able to moderate and monitor your own page.
Those are called emoticons (or zemoticons here), and they were created by Saxbeat, Eric, myself and many others from the old Z Posee. There's a lot of old history for each emoticon but I won't bother you with the background. All you have to know is how to use them in your posts.
