Easier to build a collection of playmates through newsgroup.
Even though many of the photos of playmates are available at this site, it's easier to build a collection of playmates through a newsgroup than it is through Playboy PLus.
The collection will also be more complete through a newsgroup.
The problem with a newsgroup is that you have to learn to use a newsreader, and pay for the newsgroup access, and a few other methods you will have to learn.
But for fans of past playmates, a newsgroup offers more complete files (in photos, not in videos), and an easier method of collecting and sorting your photos.
It's been many years since I belonged to a newsgroup, but Playboy Plus made me realize that poor site structure (and other problems with the site) makes newsgroup access a worthwhile alternative for collecting Playboy material.
But there is a lot to learn about how to use a newsgroup effectively.
After updating with only 4 updates daily the last couple of weeks, Met-Art has finally posted 6 updates for the first day of March: 1 video plus 5 photosets.
Although they advertise up to 6 updates daily, I noticed that back on January 13, 2013, there were only 3 updates. Recently, they have been posting 4 updates per day.
These facts are probably of interest to hardcore Met-Art fanatics. But I want to spread the word that Met-Art update rate varies. You can't expect 6 updates per day. Even 3 updates per day is more than any other softcore teen glamor site that I am aware of.
One problem at many of these sites is the poor model listing pages. Many of the models at these sites have a blank space instead of a thumbnail, so you don't know what the model looks like until you watch a video and then try to figure out what name goes with what model.
But at least at the Daring Sex site, most of the models I checked all had thumbnails. And their videos at this site are listed along with the thumbnail of the model on the model's page.
They re-designed the preview pages for Teen Mega World.
The preview pages now show a clearer listing of some of the member sites you get access to with a membership in Teen Mega World.
They say you get access to 33 teen porn sites.
But the preview page only shows thumbnails for 24 sites.
For years, I have complained that Teen Mega World (and its member sites) do not show a clear listing of all the sites you are supposed to get with a membership in any one of the sites.
The new preview page is a much better listing than the previous one that showed a tiny thumbnail for some of their sites.
But it still does not show clearly all the sites you are supposed to get access to.
Is this a Russian or Eastern Europe thing, where you can't show clearly the sites you are supposed to get access to with a membership?
Also, the preview page seems very limited. Apart from the page listing the sites you are supposed to get, there is a page for "latest videos", "top rated girls", "categories", etc. But if you click on a thumbnail of a model you might like, instead of going to a page of the model where it lists her videos or photosets, you are directed to a signup page. The same thing happens if you click on a thumbnail of a video you might want to see a sample of: instead of a sample video, you are redirected to the signup page. You click on "Browse all our categories", and instead of a listing of the categories, you are redirected to the signup page.
I guess they want you to join their site.
But a better sales pitch would be if their preview gave a potential member the chance to see a model's page that shows a nice-sized thumbnail of the model, with her content at the network.
And it would be helpful if they included some sample videos lasting 30 - 60 seconds to show what the videos are like.
The network has a tremendous amount of videos, many of very nice quality, and I think they are missing an opportunity to showcase their goods.
It's been about 5 years since I was a member of this site. Back then, they had some really cute models. Nice softcore photography. Their preview pages give a very limited idea of the site contents. They advertise the site updates twice a week. But the preview pages don't show the posted dates of any recent updates.
What is new to me is that you are supposed to get a large number of bonus sites with your membership. The bonus sites are solo model sites and multi-model sites. I believe many of these bonus sites are archive sites, that have not updated in 1 or more years. But maybe it would be worth a 1-month membership to see what these sites have. Or not.
One cute model is Ema, who has her own site named Ema's Place. The site preview states she is 18, but she is also featured at Metart, under the name of Avril A, which says her current age is 25. I think Metart tries to be more accurate about a model's age than most web sites.
Anyway, Metart has 20 photosets of Avril A, the last one posted 2010-11-19.
The preview pages for Ema's Place state weekly updates, ultra fresh content. But my guess is that the last update to the Ema's Place site was probably a few years ago. I don't think Ema (or Avril A, or whatever name you use to call her) is still active as a model.
And that's probably true of many of the bonus sites you get with a Glam Deluxe membership. Bonus sites that no longer update.
I wish that the preview pages for these porn sites would more accurately reflect the current state of these sites, instead of promising you fresh, weekly updates that you won't be getting.
I've been a member of Metart for many years, off and on. But I just realized you can set some options on how the site is displayed.
You can show measurements in metric or imperial.
Imperial is the British system of measurements: Feet and inches for length, pounds for weight.
Although they have taught the metric system in the United States for many years, I still have to translate metric to the British system, because I grew up with feet-inches and pounds, and metric measurements just aren't natural for me; I have to translate them to feet-inches and pounds to understand what they mean.
This is a simple thing, really. But it makes the Metart site easier to use.
Also, you can select the language the site is displayed:
Deutsch (which is German, I assume)
Chinese? (I'm guessing, it's some kind of oriental language)
Japanese? (I'm guessing, it's some kind of oriental language)
? (Some other oriental language
So I guess that Metart truly is an international site, promoting softcore porn throughout the world.
I just noticed the last PU newsletter.
They have a special price of $9.97 monthly for Team Skeet (which includes all 14 sites in that network).
The regular discount price from PU is $17.87/month (recurring).
It used to be that you could be logged in to any of the member sites for hours before you would get a site timeout.
But today, I am getting a site timeout within minutes of logging in to the network.
This has happened a few times today, already.
Separately, you go to a video at one of their sites, that is supposed to have a streaming option to view. And instead of being able to stream the video, there is no hot link to stream the video. This is not true for all videos, but just today, I found several videos that would not stream.
I certainly hope that their technical staff will fix these problems.
Edit01: I just logged in to X-Art, which I am also a member of. And I have the same problem of not seeing a hot link to play streaming videos.
So I now think that the problem is probably some software or hardware conflict in my PC, and not at the Teen Mega World network. Because I doubt that X-Art would have the same technical problem of not displaying the hot link to stream a video.
I'm sorry that I suggested/implied/stated that Teen Mega World was having technical problems.
My guess is that it's my PC that is having technical problems.
It's a new PC, less than 1 year old. No virus or malware, that I know of.
Edit02: Yes, it's definitely my PC that has a problem. I can't find a play link to stream videos at 18 Only Girls or Young Legal Porn, which are part of the Diesel Access network.
Edit03: I recently disabled Java because of the security warnings. That might be what's causing my problems. That's just a guess, because I don't have any way of testing that.
Well, I could turn Java back on. But the security experts say that Java leaves you open to too many security problems.
Membership fee out of line with the site contents.
Since this is a new site that just started a few months ago, and the site has only a small amount of content, they should really offer, until the site has grown a lot, a smaller subscription fee, for at least 6 months or more.
I know that the site operators want to cover expenses and all, but considering the relative lack of content versus competing sites, it's seems like a bad business decision to charge more for a monthly membership than mega-sites like Met-Art, MPL Studios, or Femjoy, which have years of back-logged content, gorgeous models, and a lower monthly price (about $20/month with PU discount).
I know some PU members have said the recent updates at Teen Mega World are below the standards that Teen Mega World had before.
But one thing that I think is an improvement, not just at Teen Mega World but at some other sites as well, is that we are seeing some new stunt cocks appearing in these videos. I am glad that the 3 main stunt cocks at Teen Mega World are appearing less often.
I took advantage of the $5.00/30 day membership to Naughty America today.
I unchecked the pre-check membership to a bonus site.
But after logging in to the Naughty America site, I found an email in my Spam folder that says:
