*Today, 12-20-2014, there is no ATK website at all. Not even the visitors homepage will load.*
On the plus side, at least people won't unknowingly subscribe to this mess. They way things have been going, it's best if ATK just vanishes for a while, provides prorated refunds, and returns once they've truly fixed the problem. As much as I've enjoyed ATK over the years, money is the bottom line: they don't give us free porn, so why should they get free money?
I am going to reply to this comment EVERY TIME I encounter a server problems with your site, just to show the world how non-stop this problem is.
So yes - today, the server is down *again*.
You may not think it is down, but having to click 'Refresh' several times = server is down. I wouldn't bother for a free site, let alone one expecting payment.
At what point does this become fraud? At what point does thebestporn.com disassociate itself with you?
I noticed that your server is CloudFlare. On their website, they have four different pricing tiers: Free, Pro, Business, and Enterprise. All four levels claim to have 'Basic DDoS Protection'. Does it not work? Which pricing tier do our ATK dollars pay for?
CloudFlare boasts on their page that Wells Fargo uses their services. Does Wells Fargo have these sorts of problems? What would happen if they did?
Has this mess awakened the powers-that-be at ATK, or are they still pinching pennies while the site goes down the drain?
"Being under attack by unknown hackers has not only made us look bad to our members but it has also stopped our ability to bring in new ones. Not only because they can not access the site but because we are not getting bad reviews from currently members and they are leaving us."
That's a very good point about their honesty with the remastered video. I overlooked that. It's always pitiful finding an newly-featured update that you downloaded two years prior! I respect Bangbros for not doing that sort of thing.
I've been meaning to check out Try Teens and its sister sites for a while now. I'm typically not even a fan of Euro porn, but that site struck me as exceptional.
I've been curious to try ExploitedCollegeGirls for some nice American girl debauchery, but I can't bring myself to pay that guy $35. BackroomCastingCouch is only $25, though. Both sites seem to cast American girls that don't look like blow-up dolls.
Yeah, I've wondered if it's me, but I still like a lot of other sites I discovered around the same time, such as Amateur Allure and MyXXXPass. I don't mind tats, but I hate silicone tits. But even the chicks with natural boobs bore me at BangBros. All the chicks look the same: long-ass hair, fat ass, big tits, cheesy sunglasses, and usually too tan. It's like a haven for Jersey Shore rejects. I see these girls and I instantly think "LETS DO BODY SHOTS - WOOOOO!!!"
The increased presence of 'BangBros Remastered' clips is suspicious, and I can't even keep up with their new sites. WTF is Chongas and Pawg all about? Why have all these sites, but rarely update them. These guys were once key players, but nowadays, they might as well be PornPros.com (no offense to PornPros).
I'm glad I'm not alone regarding the excess focus on the guys, though. That was the worst part about Bang Bus, especially. You'll be watching a hot chick getting f--ked, and then the camera guy will suddenly zoom to Ramon's ugly ass face grinning at you. Who f--- wants to see that when they're about to nut??
This site has brought out the vigilante in me. They will not change until they start losing $$$. I will scream it from the mountaintops - "Don't join ATK Hairy unless you wanna see a few cute girls and a bunch of freaks"!
Bad economy = tons of cute girls ready to get nekkid, and tons of porn-fiends who can't afford to look at ug-chicks. This should be a no-fail operation. How are they screwing this up??
If they already have 'ATK Petites', why can't they just create 'ATK Scary Hairy', already? Or at this point, 'ATK Natural, Pretty, and Slightly Hairy', since they apparently changed it to 'Scary [and Ugly] Hairy' without proper notice.
Thanks, man. I'm glad you spoke up about it first - I just wish I had listened. :) I had gotten one of those $20 email offers, I hadn't subscribed in a while, and there were a few chicks who had some new sets.
But even that wasn't worth it. With this being the beginning of the month - I just paid rent, and I'm wishing I hadn't even spent the $20, or at least spent it on better porn. It's sad.
No offense taken at all! You're probably right, once I thought about it. The technology I'm use at the moment is still a few years old, and when I think about how often I look at old sets from early-to-mid 2000s, I realize it's not very often - due to the size. I should probably start downloading the hi-res, and just find a viewer that makes it easier to set the magnification level. You have a very good point!
@ Messmer - sorry for the delay. If you haven't been on in a while, I'd suggest checking it out - they've probably acquired a few sets worth collecting. I don't recall any big changes regarding the undressing procedure. I feel the same as you - I hate it when they're nude ASAP. I think Sean R still draws it out the longest (although I wish he didn't have such a monopoly on the UK cutie dept).
Regarding the bigger photos, I never use them. They're too big (at least for my screen). If you're viewing on a T.V. they might be useful, but on a standard monitor you end up having to scroll too much. Luckily ATK quickly realized that, so they provide several viewing and download options.
Anytime. I must add, too, that I appreciate the effort you've been putting into making the ATK sites as good as possible. Great customer service, great interviews, and great value for the dollar - keep it up! Karups and Nubiles try to cop your style, but ATK gives so much more, thus my allegiance is strong. The old folks have Playboy, I have ATK.
Mmm, the vids aren't the highest quality. I personally don't mind, since the file sizes are smaller, resulting in faster download and ability to get more vids. However, those who value video quality will probably be disappointed.
To answer those very good questions:
1.) the vids are about 20 minutes each
2.) The trailers are truly appetizers for the videos. The vids are good, using excellent angles to please viewers of different tastes. The focus is on the girl the whole time. A+ on vid quality (shooting, image quality, performance, concept)
3.) The girls do a decent amount of teasing. Not too much (none of the hour of bullshit found in Bang Bus videos), and not too little. And, they change it up from video to video, per the requirements of the scenario. But they all have a good tease intro.
4.) The trailer set is actually a true representation of the membership archive, and you can see EVERY trailer! Talk about testing the product. In fact, I keep tabs on what's new through the trailer page, and they update about once to twice a week.
5.) I experienced no limits on my downloads, and believe me, I got my $$$ worth! No DRM, and fast downloads. The vids were high quality, while still being decently sized (I don't like those 1 GB HD files, it's just a porno vid)
My bad again for being offline for so long, I had forgotten the password to this account. You might've already joined. If not, I highly suggest it, I still check up on their updates weekly.
And the Victoria Vonn videos are HOT! God, her tits are a delight.
Yeah, the $30.00 was worth it, because between the two sites you get over 300 exclusive, well-shot, easy to download videos. Before I joined, I had the same fear of getting ripped off, but I was highly impressed.
If you like what you see in the previews, you will be more than pleased. I have several gigs of their stuff from my membership a few months back, and I plan on joining again.
