Review: Party To Please
Party To Please (P2P) is a bit of an odd site, compared to others reviewed here. It is essentially a collection of forums, with no advertising. Created after the shutdown of NightShift, it primarily serves the greater Central Valley of California, making it a very regional site. The primary stated purpose of the website is social interaction, though it also calls itself a “dating” site.
In the weeks that followed the passage of FOSTA and the loss of numerous websites, P2P did serve as a valuable communication tool for the region it serves. As a result, many within the CTS community from Sacramento to Bakersfield were able to remain connected. This was highly valuable in aiding in spreading the word about other websites that started up as well as helping people find each other on social media sites like Instagram.
P2P has not provided much other value. The various discussion areas are not widely used and the site does not offer actual listings for providers. A large focus on the site has been to coordinate social events, mostly in the Fresno area.
Users of the site have often been frustrated by the constant changes to the site’s rules, often feeling the rules are too restrictive. The operators of this site have stated that they are working to keep the site free of any legal complications.
Overall, this regional site does not offer that much to the community. Dedicated social media sites provide better structure and communication for community building and dedicated advertising sites are much better for clients to find providers. While this site was very helpful in the chaos after the passage fo the FOSTA law, it has had limited value in any larger sense.
Note: ValleyScott was banned from P2P without notification or reason in July.
