Excellent review. I basically agree with everything you wrote. Except possibly I don't find the cross-selling very annoying, compared to what many other paysites do.
Obviously, I would like to get their entire network for free, after joining any one of the network sites, but we can't have everything.
I think that Metart is the best value in the network.
I even paid for a lifetime membership to Metart. I only wish I had done that from the start, because it would have saved me the monthly and annual memberships to Metart that I have paid for. Except that I think for many years while I was a member, they didn't offer a lifetime membership.
I can be mildly disappointed when I find that some content from the site was removed. It's hard to determine if the removal was done at the request of the model, If done at the model's request, that shows a respect for the model.
On the other hand, there are so many past and future models, we should still appreciate the content that is available to us.
It seems more and more common that support staff at many businesses are worse than useless.
I bought an item through Amazon. The item was not sold from Amazon, but from one of its commercial partners.
The partner overcharged me about $7 on the item.
I complained to the partner's support staff, in an email.
The first email response I got from the partner support staff said the $7 overcharge was justified, according to their records.
I sent a second email, stating again that I was overcharged $7, and I should get a refund.
The second email from the support staff stated I was not overcharged $7.
I sent a second email, stating that I had been overcharged $7.
The third email from support staff asked me for proof that I had been overcharged.
I sent a new email, with photo copies of the original coupon I used, the original price I should have paid, and a photostat of the charge from my credit card company.
That was proof that I was being overcharged $7.
The next email from support staff said they were sorry I was having a problem, and to please explain what my problem was.
The funny things are: with every email I sent to support staff, I included, in the heading, the ticket code for my complaint.
And I explained, in each email I sent, a summary of my complaint about the overcharge.
As well as sending with each email, the add-on of all previous emails I had sent.
And from the second email on, the support staff member who sent the replying emails was from the same support staff member
Finally, I sent an email to Amazon, with the confirming photos showing I had been overcharged (copy of coupon I used, copy of bill from the partner that shows the overcharge, and copy of my credit card statement that showed the overcharge).
And Amazon gave me a credit for the overcharge.
I've been a member of Metart at different times for the last 10 years or more.
I can't say I've seen every photo set or video they have posted.
But I never came across a peeing scene.
My guess is that the person who told you about the peeing scenes was talking about Grigori Galitsin, who contributed to Metart in its early days.
Galitsin did make some videos featuring peeing, masturbation, lesbian sex, but that content was posted on his own site, not on Metart.
And the Galitsin photo sets that were posted on Metart (which were strictly softcore), were removed from Metart, after Galitsin ran into legal problems with Russia.
I'm not computer knowledgeable, but 2+ GB for 720p video seems way too large.
The coding formats/algorithms used can make a big difference in the file size.
I'm guessing that those files could be shrunk a lot by better choice of file format/codec/whatever.
Even though hard drive prices keep dropping, 2+ GB files will use up a lot of hard drive storage. And even more so for SSD storage.
Thanks for the kind words.
I reviewed this network a few year ago (2011-12-04), and gave it a score of 91.
I decided to give a score of 95 this time, because they keep adding such fine-looking new models.
Just because a model is beautiful doesn't mean her hard core videos will be great.
But I do enjoy looking at beautiful girls.
I even paid for a life-time membership to Metart (my favorite softcore photo site).
I also got some "free offers" to join Femjoy by paying $30 to join Femjoy and Nubiles.
That's the beauty of advertising: Create words to describe things in the best, most attractive way. Forget logic and common sense... For $30, you get Femjoy and Nubiles, which is the the list price of Nubiles by itself, so you are getting Femjoy for "free".
Anyway, this morning, I got a Christmas special email offer to join Femjoy for $14.95 for 1 month.
I use Down Them All, a free program, that works well at most paysites I've joined. Including Metart. I've set up queues with 6 or more links, and can't recall any problems with the download at Metart (or most other paysites I've joined).
Try Down Them All, a free, easy to use program, and report your results.
Really pays to read the fine print.
$US99.95 every 30 days after the initial period!
Either that is a mis-print (pricing error), or a scam to trap the unwary.
I wonder how many people will be caught by this?
I've always thought Hegre was a major site, ethical.
If I was stupid enough to pay S99.95/month on re-bills, I'd never join this site again.
Cross sells are ok if unchecked, but most cross sells that I've seen are still checked, as the default option.
I think I only got caught once with a pre-checked cross sell. I immediately (within 5 minutes or less) called the billing company, but they would not reverse the charge.
So I spend a lot of time whenever I sign on to a new site, looking for the cross sell. Sometimes they are hard to find.
I also get a lot of offers from different sites. But I haven't been a member at this network for a while, and for $5, it's worth a join for me. I mean, $5: It costs me $10 to go to a movie theater, and that's with a senior discount. Lol.
So I don't go to movie theaters very much. I'd rather wait for the DVD to come out (usually in a few months after the theatrical releae), and pay $1+ at Redbox.
But some movies I wait to watch on cable.
The Lone Ranger was so bad, I waited to watch it on cable, and only watched a few minutes of it. Couldn't finish the movie, it was so stupid.
As I get older, I have less patience--and enjoyment.
I rented the last Transformers movie, that just came out with Mark Wahlberg. I only made it halfway through, before I stopped watching. I kept hoping the movie would get better, until I realized I was wasting my time on junk. Junk that made over $1 billion in box office.
I'm really glad I didn't spend $10 to see Transformers in a theater. I would have probably walked out long before the end. Something I've almost never done. But the older I get, the less patience I seem to have.
Have you signed up for the Metart newsletter?
It's free. A one-page email, usually showing some covers of photo sets or videos from the network.
The email sometimes has some nice discounts for different site memberships.
The best discount was for $1/month membership to Erotic Beauty, that would never be raised in price.
PU rules didn't allow the link to access that offer to be posted on PU.
I joined Erotic Beauty, and it's cost me $12 for the 12 months I've been a member.
But no other offers came close to that one.
But sometimes you do get a nice discount to one or more sites in the Metart network in the Metart newsletter.
I haven't rejoined femjoy.
But if you send an email to their support, they might give you a few free days of membership in compensation.
I've seen that happen at some other sites when a member has problems accessing a site.
And their tech support might be able to help with the connection problem. Or not.
Even good sites seem to have problems every once in awhile.
Cancel your membership and get a refund.
That's my suggestion.
I've never had your problem, and have mainly been satisfied with the site.
But there's no sense paying for a membership that gives more problems than satisfaction.
The least they should do is give you free days of membership to compensate for your lost days of site access.
Drooler, I'm not an expert on Chrome, since I just bought my first Chromebook a few days ago, and I am still learning how to use it.
But if you have a lot of Microsoft office documents that you use, you can use Microsoft Office Web Apps, for compability with your existing office documents. It's free for individuals, but not for businesses.
Otherwise, if you have no previous Microsoft office documents that you have to deal with, you can use the other free apps for Chrome.
Since Microsoft is giving the Microsoft Office Web Apps away for free, to hold onto their customer base (even those that are using Chrome), I would guess that there shouldn't be a lot of problems with using your older Microsoft Office documents with a Chromebook.
That's only a guess. Because personal experinence is the deal breaker.
I couldn't stand Win 8.1, because Win 7 was so much easier to use (after migrating from Win XP, which I really liked).
But some people are technically mobile, and maybe they even appreciate the new Win 8 OS.
But so far, at least, I really like the Chromebook. And it's so fucking cheap. And fast. And you don't have to worry about viruses, and software updates, etc. The software updates automatically, when you're connected to the web. But my desktop Win 7 has to shut down for updates, and then restart, and I'm always running virus scans, and the Chromebook just seems to be so much easier to use and problem free. At least so far.
I don't like the keyboard on the Chromebook, or the touchpad, so I added a wireless keyboard and mouse to the Chromebook.
That was easy to do, and only cost $40 for the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo Mk550 With Keyboard and Laser Mouse from Amazon.
So I'm good to go, as I learn to use the Chromebook.
