How do I sign up?
We do not require that you sign up to just read report cards. However, you do need to register for an account if you wish to write a report card or contact another user.
To register, simply click on any link that says Register. This link can be found on almost every page, on the right hand side, right below the big button that says Make a Report Card. There is also another Register link at the bottom of the main page, under Join us! Clicking on any of these links will take you to the sign up screen, and you will be prompted to choose a username and password for your account.
Your username does not have to be your name. You may choose anything as a username as long as it's not taken by another user already. Your password should be something easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess, and it should not be the same as your username.
How do I log in?
Under the big Make a Report Card button on the right side of the page, there is a link that says log in. After you have already created an account with LRC, you can use your username and password to log in to the site. This helps us to identify you and your preferences. You will also be able to write report cards as well as contact other users once you have logged in.
Remember to log out if you are using a public computer. This link can be found underneath your user name on the right once you have logged in.
How do I write a report card?
There are several ways you can start writing a report card.
- On the right hand side of almost every page, you will see a big blue and white button that says Make a Report Card.
- Towards the bottom half of the main page, there is a link to Make a Report Card.
- When viewing report cards for a specific landman, there will be a blue bar at the bottom of the page asking Have you dealt with this landman? Start a report card.
Once at the Make a Report Card page, simply follow the instructions to the best of your ability. You are not required to fill out the whole form, but the more thoroughly and specifically you do, the more useful your report card will be to other landowners. The report card is created through a multiple page form: at the end of each page, you can save your work and come back to it later.
How do I read a report card?
There are a few ways you can read a report. On the main page of LRC, you can click on "Read other report cards" under the Get Informed section to get a list of landmen. When you click on a specific landman, you will see the average rating, number of reviews written, and rating breakdown. At the bottom of the page, you will see previews of reviews written for that landman. Clicking on "read more" will take you to the full report card.
How do I browse the site?
In the middle of the top of every page, there is a section called Browse which includes three dropdown menus. You can browse the site much in the same way you can search the site. By clicking on one of the options, you will be able to browse the site corresponding to the option you selected: by location, landman, company.
How do I search for a specific landman?
At the top left corner of every page, you will see a search box. You can search for a particular landman by typing in his or her name in the box and pressing the enter key. This will take you to a page with all results matching the name you typed in. There, you can click on the name of the landman you are looking for.
How do I search for a specific company?
At the top left corner of every page, you will see a search box. You can search for a particular oil and gas company by typing in the name of the company in the box and pressing the enter key. This will take you to a page with all results matching the company name you typed in. There, you can click on the name of the company you are looking for.
How do I search for reviews written in a specific location?
At the top left corner of every page, you will see a search box. You can search for a particular place by typing in the name of the location in the box and pressing the enter key. This will take you to a page matching the location you typed in. There, you can click on the specific location you are looking for.
How do I get back to the main page?
To get back to the main page at any point while on the site, simply click on "Landman Report Card" on the top left corner of any page, right above the search box. This will take you to the main page of LRC.
How do I report problems while using the site?
At the bottom of every page, there is a link that says "Contact Us." Clicking on this link will take you to a form through which you can contact us. You can use this form to report any problems you may encounter while using Landman Report Card. You can also use this form to make any comments or suggestions about the site.
How do I contact another user?
When you are reading a report card, there will be a link at the bottom of the page that allows you to contact the user who wrote it. After clicking on that, you will be taken to a form that allows you to say what you want to the user. This message will be sent via the LRC messaging system. We will never publish these messages.
