I recently wrote in the forums of this site and my critique was removed in less than 24 hours. Please note that #6 was wrong and I did add a reply to note this. Basically, the video I thought was reposts was video that appeared on another site (jackass-nudebeach.com) so it was not reposted for this site. Here is what I wrote:
Subject: We are not that stupid
While I appreciate the site there are several problems that could be addressed to make the site much better. However, I am guessing that those who own/manage it are soooo rich that they do not care to make more money, or they smoke pot all day and are unmotivated to improve it. In either case here is what needs to be fixed, because for those of use who subscribe and browse the collection from time to time...to put it bluntly...we are not that stupid to notice that...
1. Making 20 videos out of a single 5 minuet clip and then spreading them over a 5 month period doesn't mean that the site has more content. It just means the user has to spend more time downloading a bunch of short clips instead of one. I assume the owners feel this increases the appearance of their content and/or dissuades users from using more bandwidth. In either case it sucks and makes the experience second rate to quality adult sites.
2. Video shot from above that shows shoulders and bald-headed men plain suck and should appear very rarely. If I wanted to look at the tops of naked bald headed men I would find a spot in the ceiling of the men's locker room at the local YMCA.
3. High Definition video is NOT up-converted standard definition video OR compressed HD video made to be smaller in file size so that users use less bandwidth. Just because a video appears in HD aspect ratios doesn't make it HD, and yes we can tell. Come on most of us HAVE HD or are members of sites that offer REAL HD (e.g. ilovethebeach.com). Real HD doesn't take up 9MB for 17 sec clips but about 50+MB.
4. Did I mention how STUPID clips that are less than 1 minuet are...
5. Taking captures of the REAL HD video (which is not made available to subscribers) and then posting it as "pictures" is weak. It is quite obvious that this is what you are doing...
6. You may have 190+ pages of video content (mostly due to the STUPID 17 second clips), but that doesn't mean you need to repost so many videos. Sure most people will get tired of wading through the STUPID 17 second clips, but those of us with memories longer than goldfish are quite aware of how many reposts appear in the course of a year.
To summarize this site could be SUPER cool. It could have the quality that ilovethebeach.com has with its content. But it appears that those who manage this site are cheap and prefer to cut corners and maintain their profit margin instead of increase it. It could be such a great site too which is what makes it a shame...I do wish they read this and consider some of what I have said (even if it was caustic and sarcastic).
This site, like another of the company's sites, Desperate-wife, is a total bogus rip off. All or at least most of the women profiled on the site do not exist. They're pure fiction. I tried writing to several, and the replies don't make sense. They're just random and general and have no connection to anything you might have said in your message. Also, I get messages from women who have supposedly seen my profile, and if you answer them, the same thing--nonsensical answers. TOTALLY BOGUS.
After missing three public deadlines for launching the new version of Rookie Babe, the site is finally public. It has received something of a facelift (although it looked decent to begin with). Sets are now available to download as zip files and the photo resolution is MUCH higher (between 3000 and 5000px). Finally! The video quality is much higher as well and available for download in a variety of formats including .mp4, .wmv, and whatever the iPod format is.
Now the bad news. This is probably due to the site just now being launched, but it's so slow. If you're downloading something, you cannot load another page. Simultaneous downloads are not an option right now. Hopefully that's just because the server is swamped.
The real bad news is the amount of content is drastically reduced. I suppose they will re-upload old content as they prepare it. However, after stringing along subscribers for over a month, you'd think they would at least build on what they already had rather than taking ten steps backwards.
I like Rookie Babe's content a lot, but this whole website transition has given me a pretty negative impression. I don't think they were completely honest with subscribers and posted unrealistic launch dates. Now that the new site is here, I'm happy, but where is the old stuff? If you're not a subscriber now, I say, wait for a while.
Stay tuned for a full review once the site starts functioning properly and allows me to navigate *while* downloading a file!
Having had 'dates' with a few girls from this site I can say it does work however many of the ads show the girls haven't logged in for months.
The blogging/social aspect of AFF is actually very good and I ended up spending most of my time doing that as it was a good way of talking about dirty things and sharing tips etc as well as showing to potential 'mates' you're cool. lol
The worst thing is the fustration that comes from contacting loads of females and hearing back from almost none (seeing as most filter there messages or are no longer active)
That and the cost and wierd way that even as a member you need to pay extra to allow non-members to contact you.
To fully succeed with this site you really do need to put a fair amount in, spend time filling out your profile FULLY, and try and build up a blog/spend time in the different forums/chatrooms.
Oh and a tip from a female (she showed me her account and we chatted about it)
They (females) get 10's of messages a day so to stand out try and personalise the first message somehow and keep it fairly short but provoking conversation.
(Most messages from most guys are obviously sent to everyone and/or are just two sentances crude and lazy.
RookieBabe advertises downloadable videos on their site. This applies to a small number of 'new' videos (those less than a year old), and is not applied retroactively to previous videos. The vast majority of the videos are not downloadable. The quality of the downloadable videos is not great and they're only available in .wmv format with no choice of resolution.
I joined the site over a year ago and when I re-joined this month, I was disappointed to find that the site hasn't really expanded much at all. The site is getting a major overhaul in the near future, but this new version release date has been pushed back a few times. I'll believe it when I see it.
If you live in Sweden, it seems this site might be OK for getting some. I live close to Oslo in Norway, and I could have gotten laid several times if I didn't have any standards. All the people that contacted me were couples 35+ from Goteborg, Malmo and Stockholm in Sweden. And even though I had stated I was heterosexual, they all wanted me to get it on with the man too. No way, not ever!
I recommend this site to bisexual/trysexual people only, with a fat wallet.
It's impossible to do anything at all except wait if you don't pay. You even have to pay to answer people contacting you, unless THEY pay to allow you to contact them.
Ads on the Net saying that this and that girl from your "neighborhood" awaits you, are NEVER of girls in your "neighborhood"
My rating would be somewhere around 65-70 for this site.
I just joined 3 days ago, and haven't had a lot of time to check the content. I'll post a full review in a few days... If you're looking for HiDef video or pics, or professionally produced scenes, they're not here. What is here is a HUGE collection of (mostly short) amateur videos and (mostly small) amateur photos. I'm way more interested in the video section, but in the pics there's a section called "see-through babes" which is all babes wearing see-through t-shirts, lingerie, laughably tight blouses, etc. It's a great section, and it appears to have 370 pages of 20 pics each. The "Cute Babes" section has 5700 pages. I could spend the next month just clicking through that... In the vid sections I recognized a few I'd seen before (I've seen the same "Christyne" no-sound video on many sites), but there are many more new to me. So far this is looking like an excellent join... I'll get back with more specifics in a few days...
Is, is this site for real? I went to the site a couple of times and tried to do the Free registration thing, but never got an email reply... I've gotten some scenes which purport to come from this site [per the watermark] through Skin Video, and a couple of them are very good amateur scenes which I haven't seen elsewhere, so I'm quite curious, but slightly trepidatious to give them eighteen bucks or so when they wouldn't reply to my email... If anyone has tried them out, please let me know. If I have to be the first, well, I'll have to "steel" myself for the challenge...
Just wanted to note, one of the good things abou tthis sie is the free video preview, You can see the girl and sometimes see her while she is doing a show for a paying client, Its a great way to see just how good they are
Have not been a member of this site long enough to review it, and with all the various content its hard to do so. But let me tell you this stuff is as real as it gets, as if you or I filmed the material. The quality really lacks for the pics and videos. But man there is alot of content in here for only 40 dollars a year. Updates daily. Not as good as tac amateurs I feel, but it is definetly comparable.
A little over a month ago I reviewed this site after enjoying a month's membership. Although I had some qualms with the site, I praised it for its ingenuity and saw only good things on the horizon. My intention was to check back in with the site after a few months to see how it had grown and to report on whether or not it was deserving of the promise I had forecasted.
While the jury is still out, I am happy to report that the site automatically gave everyone who joined during 2007 an extra month of membership, even for those who had already cancelled. I confirmed that my membership was again active and am pleased to report that I have full access. Not a ton has changed (and I wouldn't have expected a lot of change that fast), though updates have continued to be steady and more girls are featured overall.
I still plan to check back in with the site in a few months to allow them some time to make improvements to the site, but if guestures like providing a free month to past customers are any indication, I think the site is headed in the right direction.
All the arguments going on over "is it shilling or not?" if a member of an amateur site recommends it glowingly made me curious enough to become a member of Newbie Nudes: for all of 15 minutes.
It is my personal opinion that the ratings given by present contributors to this site are way out of line when one takes a look at what is actually offered there. Forget, for a moment, that larger pictures and videos are available for a hefty price and look at the general make-up of this amateur site:
The overwhelming majority of the members choose to remain anonymous (for valid reasons) which means faceless body parts all over the place and very few pics where one could actually admire the beauty of the WHOLE woman (and a paid subscription and larger pictures wouldn't change that). When you do come across a "whole person" pic you still have to consider yourself lucky if the face isn't masked somehow.
In my opinion you would have to be a contributor who gets a thrill from exposing his/her genitalia anonymously, or someone who likes to mingle with fellow exhibitionists, (not that there is anything wrong with it) to give the site more than a fifty! To the uninvolved (non-contributing) voyeur the site isn't worth a second look.
I sound just like an 80s sorority girl, but OH MY GOD! Can this be the site I've waited for all these months? By all means, anyone check it out, but I'll be reviewing this one personally as soon as I get the time. It looks a bit small at the moment, but any great site starts out that way. Of course it could be too good to be true and no substance. However, I'll take that risk! :)
So I did the trial and found that only a few of the most recent models have downloadable videos ( 4 girls, 16 movies). Still worth the trial cost for the photos, however, no zip download options make it painfully slow to save photos.
Ever wonder why the models you like on Secretfriends or directsex no longer strip or perform at all?
These sites = theyarelive,com and freeforumzone.leonardo.it/viewforum.aspx?f=92026 Trade EVERY MODELS VIDEOS. There is no need for ANYONE to visit the sites - These sites have armies of LOSERSwho do nothing BUT records EVERY second of Every Performers shows on then catalog them for EVERYONE to download. Make the sites aware of these scumbags if you want your fav models to still model!
