I like the BTS content at some sites like Abby Winters. One of the cool things about their BTS pics that never gets mentioned is that you get to see some technical aspects of how they set up their shoots. For example, lots of outdoor pics show not only the model and sometimes the photographer, but also often the girls assisting and holding reflectors etc. Kind of cool for the photo geek in me.
That is great news. Thank you for getting in touch with your reproduction team on my behalf. I am really glad to hear that these amazing shoots have a chance of being seen again, and that you would be willing to say a few words for me at your updates planning. I completely understand why you must follow a specific structure as you remaster your older content. I will be in touch with you regarding some specific requests. Sometimes I think porn is like art ... too often it isn't fully appreciated until it becomes scarce. Now that these classic DDF shoots are gone, if only temporarily, I have realized how amazing they really are. It's an uncommon site that would give the time of day to this type of request, and an even rarer one that would honor it. DDF already stands out thanks to your reply.
You'll have to buy an old 5 1/4" floppy drive. They're about $35 on eBay. You'll probably also need a floppy controller card, because most modern BIOS don't have native support for 5 1/4" floppy drives. You can get a controller for $60 here http://www.deviceside.com/fc5025.html. If you want to see those photos again, I'd get them now, because the hardware you need will only get harder to find and more expensive.
DDF is lacking nothing in terms of new updates. You are putting out some amazing stuff. Did you read my comments on the previous DDF review and on my poll regarding removing old content where I mentioned DDF? You will see that this is something that I am very opinionated about. I was about to post a review that gave DDF some of my highest praises but also some harsh but honest criticism for removing some truly epic older shoots. My interactions with your first-line customer support have been pleasant, but after 6 months they have not resulted in a single classic DDF shoot in the pee fetish genre being re-posted. The sets that I have in mind don't have Best By Dates, and they feature models such as Sandy, Justine Joli, Zafira, and Zuzana Z.
For a while I held off on writing my review of DDF. It would have been a difficult review to write. On one hand, DDF is amazing, and your new content deserves 100%. On the other hand, it frustrates me to no end to have missed out on such amazing older content. I am glad to see you posting here for DDF and listening to PU members. I would love to give you feedback as you remaster older content. Is there a way we can talk more about this? You can either reply to me here, PM me here at PU, or reply to my email via my username LPee23 at DDF. I am now holding off on writing my review again, not because I even presume that an honest but negative review from one member could necessarily move mountains at DDF, but because I really hope that this issue can be resolved, and I would really much rather write you the positive review that I think you deserve one day.
I didn't like it for the longest time. Then one day I was watching an AbbyWinters.com video featuring a hairy model, and something just clicked, her natural state was all of a sudden such a turn on. I still like shaven most of the time, because too much hair can hide the pussy lips, but I do understand the appeal in hairy.
Once I was driving a friend home after she had a run. She was kind of the hippie type, very hot, but she only shaved her legs, not even the armpits. She was sweaty after her run, and she apologized for her BO, but actually it was kind of a turn on. It wasn't the nasty, haven't showered in three days-type smell, it was more just fresh but sweaty and aromatic.
I knew she wanted me, but I didn't play into any of her advances. I had broken up with my ex at the time - now my wife - and I was still too fixated on my ex, despite the fact that I had broken up with her. I was tempted though. I still really wonder what it would have been like though, but now I will never know. No complaints though, my wife and I have been happily together for 8 years, and she is a smoking hot ex-model who loves pee almost as much as I do.
Sorry for the digression, I've had a couple of glasses of wine tonight. Hope you guys enjoy nonetheless.
My issue with DDF and their old content is slightly different than yours. At this point, since I've already come out talking about this issue in vague terms, I think it's time to get it all out and write my review. I hate to expose shortcomings of a great site, but if no one speaks up, then where is the motivation to change? I'm going to try not to slam DDF, I'd rather have them look at my review as fair and perhaps realize that there is truth in it. Look forward to it soon.
Your comment hit so close to home Cybertoad, that I forgot to comment on the topic of my own poll. If you haven't guessed already, I think it is much worse to remove older content than to fail to produce new content. Webmasters, please consider this. When you remove your original content, you lose your appeal to collectors. Collectors are your best customers and biggest spenders. As a collector, I don't want to have 90% of the content from a favorite site, I aim for 100%. When I join a site that's been on my list for a while, and my anticipation turns to dismay when I see that only a part of their content is available, it detracts from the experience. Even if you are producing amazing content, I am much less likely to be a repeat customer, because I see less of a point in adding new content to a collection that is irreparably flawed by missing the original work. I don't collect anything but porn, but the closest analogy that comes to mind is comic books. Maybe DC Comics wrote some great comic books in the 1990's, but could you ever presume to have a great Superman collection without the originals from 1938? It's the same thing with porn, at least for me, and I'm sure for many others too.
I have my own issue with DDF's old content, which I may bring to attention some day. They make new content that is second to none, but their handling of old content has deeper failings than what you refer to here. I've held off on writing a review on DDF for several months, because I am honestly way too conflicted to know how to score them. I don't know how I can take a site with such strong positives as DDF, reconcile those with some of the strongest negatives, and produce a review that I would want to post. It could potentially be one of my best reviews, I could write volumes, but I like DDF too much to call them out right now. Maybe when I feel able to write a more unbiased review of DDF, I will post it one day.
You seem to be right about this. It looks like the webmaster was active here earlier this year, so hopefully he will let us know what is going on. 50% seems far too low for a site like teenmodels.com that has historically been a quality operation, but with this going on, I can see where you are coming from...
"Well this is the nature of having a site which stems back from 1999. We are looking into the possibilities of Remastering all the old content...but it is arduous, and with over 20 new releases each week....main focus is on New content, old content is more of a Bonus."
As a past member for several months, who had a chance to look over your older content, I have to say that this would be awesome. During my time as a member, I already expressed this to support, but it deserves to be said again here.
"However, I like the DDF approach far better than most other sites that simply take down the old stuff. When I get a strong interest in a specific model, I'm happy getting as much stuff as possible. But it certainly would be helpful to identify the quality level of each offering that appears on a model's "home page" (the page that displays all material for a model)."
This can't be said enough. It would be a huge loss if this older content were removed. While the videos could use the most remastering, the photo quality back then is still very enjoyable today, even if it is not up to modern standards. Some of those older scenes are just so well shot, and the models are so hot. I also like to keep track of models, and it would be really frustrating if a favorite model's shoots were removed, even if they were low quality.
Thanks Ace DDF for talking with us here about these points. While we are on the subject of older DDF content and particular models, I can't help but ask, what happened to the shoots with Justine Joli (aka Swan and Hope) that used to be on houseoftaboo.com? I downloaded some free samples of those on TGP's a long time ago, but the shoots aren't there anymore. Do you still have those archived anywhere? Justine Joli is amazing - any chance that even the original non-remastered shoots might be re-posted?
Close-ups are one of my favorite type of shots, but of course they need to be within the context of a set where you see the model's face and body too. Close-ups shot well with high resolution and a lot of detail are the best. The more detail, the more it looks like you are right there.
It's been about 2-3 hrs/day lately, but that's about to change. I'm moving up in the world professionally, which is a good thing, but soon my work is going to demand my time close to 24/7. I probably won't be able to comment here as much either, but I'll make sure to check in often.
Edit: To whoever answered 9-12 hrs/day, I envy you and the time you have on your hands. Wealth can be measured in time as well as money, and I wish I could have the same luxury as you.
I knew someone would ask for extreme to be clarified. It's deliberately subjective here, just answer based on what it means to you. This poll was inspired by Acworth saying that he may remove some of the more "extreme" lines on Kink.com to improve sales by reaching a more mainstream audience without clarifying what extreme means. It is open to your interpretation.
I answered both 1 and 2. If the reason for this is to improve sales, I don't think it will work.
