I forgot my password. How can I log in?

Use this form to reset your password. A new password will be emailed to you, along with instructions for resetting it to something only you know.

How can I change the email address on my account?

You can change your email address in Edit Profile.

I’ve forgotten my password, and the email address I used for my account doesn’t work anymore. Now what do I do?

Email Humuhumu at with your tale of woe, and she’ll make it all okay again.

I don’t like my username, and I’d like to change it. How can I do that?

Email Humuhumu at and let her know your current username, and the new one you’d like.

Why do you ask for a real name when I’m uploading an image?

Your real name is kept in Critiki’s archives, so that we have a record of who owns which images.

Why are some of the images credited to usernames, and some of them to real names?

Images credited to real names are from people who have not yet selected a username.

If I select a username, will images I’ve already uploaded be connected to my new username?

Yes, Critiki will start showing all the images you’ve already uploaded as being credited to your new username, instead of your real name. If you select a username and the images don’t reflect your new username, email Humuhumu at, and she’ll fix it.

I have a home tiki bar, how do I get it added to Critiki?

Just email Humuhumu at with the name of your home tiki bar, the city you live in, and describe it a bit, and she’ll add it!

I found a tiki place that isn’t in Critiki. How do I add it?

Email Humuhumu at with the name of the location, the city it’s in, and anything you know about the place. Links to pictures and information are a big help. If the location is a fit for Critiki, Humuhumu will add it.

What’s the easiest way to find tiki places near me?

If you’re in the United States, the easiest way is probably to do a search on your zip code. If you have an iPhone, Android, or other smartphone, Critiki Mobile can detect your location automatically, and will show a list of locations nearest to your current position.

I own a tiki bar, how do I advertise on Critiki?

Critiki does not accept advertisements. However, your help in keeping the Critiki record for your location accurate would be much appreciated. You can use the Update Critiki’s Info link, found at the top right side of your location’s page.

Who created Critiki?

Humuhumu created Critiki, starting in 2002, out of her own curiosity about tiki locations, and her compulsive need to throw everything into databases. She is a programmer, designer and tikiphile, and does all the coding, graphic design, writing and editing for Critiki. Critiki visitors are the real heart & soul of Critiki, though, as it is their ratings, images and comments that bring Critiki to life.

How does Critiki make money? How does it keep operating?

Critiki is not a money-making venture, it is not-for-profit, and is paid for and operated entirely by Humuhumu, because she loves you. Donations are not accepted, but if you want to email her to say thanks, that always brightens her day.

Critiki is a free, not-for-profit website, created by Humuhumu.
