This is the README file for fetlife-users-[yyyymmdd].csv (where yyyymmdd represents the *approximate* date of the list), a comma-separated-value list of FetLife users collected by parallel deep-crawling https://fetlife.com/places and via other methods. You can search a database version of the list at: http://search.fetlife.94y.info/ NOTE: FetLife users are referred to as "kinksters". Fields: Field 1: id: The kinkster's id. The kinkster's profile page is "https://fetlife.com/users/xxx" where "xxx" is the id. The id doesn't change even if the kinkster changes their screenname. Field 2: screenname: The kinkster's screenname. Field 3: age: The kinkster's age. Some kinsters use high numbers here (frequently 94) if they don't want to use their real age. Since FetLife automatically increments ages yearly, an age of 95, 96, etc, also probably indicates the kinkster doesn't wish to give their age. Field 4: gender: The kinkster's gender. In addition to male (M) and female (F), Fetlife defines these special genders: CD/TV: Crossdresser/Transvestite MtF: Transgender - Male to Female FtM: Transgender - Female to Male TG: Transgender GF: Gender Fluid GQ: Genderqueer IS: Intersex B: Butch FEM: Femme Kinksters may also to leave this field blank. Field 5: role: The kinkster's role in the kink community. One of: Ageplayer, Big, Bootblack, Bottom, Bull, Daddy, Doll, Dom, Domme, Evolving, Exhibitionist, Exploring, Fetishist, Furry, Hedonist, Kinkster, Leather Boi, Leather Daddy, Leather Man, Leather Top, Leather Woman, Leather bottom, Leather boy, Leather girl, Masochist, Master, Middle, Mistress, Mommy, Primal, Primal Predator, Primal Prey, Princess, Rigger, Rope Bottom, Rope Bunny, Rope Top, Sadist, Sadomasochist, Sensualist, Slut, Spankee, Spanker, Spanko, Swinger, Switch, Top, Undecided, Vanilla, Voyeur, babyboy, babygirl, brat, cuckold, cuckquean, kajira, kajirus, kitten, little, pet, pony, pup, role, sissy, slave, sub Fields 6-8: city, state, country: The kinkster's city, state, and country. Some kinksters set their location to "Antarctica" if they don't want people to know where they live. Field 9: thumbnail: The URL to the kinkster's profile picture thumbnail. This URL is not protected and can be viewed even if you're not logged into FetLife. The thumbnail "avatar_missing_60x60.gif" indicates the kinkster has no profile picture. Replacing the "_60.jpg" at the end of the URL with "_200.jpg" yields a larger version of the profile picture. Field 10: popnum: The rank of this kinkster in their administrative area/country. I don't know FetLife's ranking method, but lower rank numbers usually indicate more active kinksters. Field 11: popnumtotal: The total number of kinksters in this kinkster's administrative area/country. Combined with popnum, gives a rough idea of how active the kinkster is. For example a popnum of 5364 and a popnumtotal of 53289 means the kinkster was ranked 5364 of the 53289 kinksters in their administrative area. Field 12: source: The source URL for the kinkster's data Field 13: jloc: used only for technical purposes Field 14: mtime: The Unix time at which this information was scraped. NOTE: User orientation is NOT included in this database, since it does NOT appear on the location pages. For reference, the possible orientations are: Straight Heteroflexible Bisexual Homoflexible Gay Lesbian Queer Pansexual Fluctuating/Evolving Asexual Unsure Not Applicable Kinksters may also choose to leave this field blank. NOTE: The city, state, and country fields did not parse well and may have errors. For the same reason (and others), the latitude and longitude fields may also have errors. NOTE: FetLife permits one person to have multiple profiles. NOTE: This list is probably not complete, and may contain errors and duplicates. I've made some effort to remove errors and duplicates, but some may still exist.
