The new layout looks fine, but they still have gallery thumbs that are too small. Another feature they should add, which I could not find, is changing the number of thumbs per page. Who wants to click through 16 pages of gallery thumbnails ... before deciding whether to download the zip?
The ATK sites allow the user to change thumbs per page, as do some other sites. Oh, yes. MetArt does, too!
Yeah I agree. I didn't realise this until I was a member. I thought there must be some sort of catch, but there isn't. I am able to download for free a year after my membership expired. I would be renewing this year if not for their pre checked cross selling.
Thanks PP, I had joined it around the time you replied. I think one of the best things about it is you can see her progression as a model. She has intrigued me as a solo fan, as much as Eve Angel did back years ago, which is saying a lot.
I also have really enjoyed the webcam archives on all the sites. Especially Talia Shepard's. She seems to really have a lot of fun with hers.
It's incredibly rare that there are any gaps in updates. We've been doing weekly updates for near 4 years now. Sometimes as few as two updates, sometimes as many as six. We did have a gap when we switched servers and systems a year or so back, that threw us for a loop for a few weeks but as noted, we caught up. :)
Some sites shoot 100 sets of a girl then the model disappears and they just pump out content, albeit old. We don't do that - we shoot frequently, sometimes as often as the week before an update depending what we're doing. Sure, sometimes we take trips and we might shoot a few more sets on vacation but never is it some huge amount of content.
We like to keep things current and as many a member has noted - Bryci is enthusiastic and loves doing her site. We have a blast most times.
There is always at least one or two people that break the terms (which is not easy to do) and then they try and call us out like we're bad guys when it was them that got their own account suspended. We're not Brazzers, we don't have 10+ servers or 24/7 tech support. We're two people, Bryci and myself. We do the best we can, and so far - so good. :)
"Yeah, it's a big problem when a webmaster calls customers liars instead of investigating the situation"
As I replied to Marcus. I never called anyone a liar.
The issue you had with Twistys, virtually all sites with security have this issue. I have had it with our sites and as with twistys, it is always resolved and time is added to the customer's account.
If you ran a server yourself or dealt with the influx of people we do, you'd see no two issues are alike. One day we might have someone that can't connect and it's as simple as he mistyped his user/pass and clicked remember user/pass so when he tried to enter - it was with the wrong credentials. So then the security would step in and stop him after a few failed attempts, banning him from trying again for 15 minutes because it thinks he's a bot. (sites get hammered by bots)
So then this guy gets mad, goes and posts on a board and who's fault was it? Well, if he's read a different review from someone else that got nabbed for site ripping (that of course, won't admit it but the data and screen grabs we have shows this) then all of asudden - I'm the bad guy again.
Some issues are simple, some are not as simple but we are not tech support for the user and his/her knowledge on how they type things in. We are tech support fore the site. We do try and fix issues and we try and be helpful but depending on the day someone is having, they either articulate their issue so we can fix it fast, or they send in 3 words like "site doesn't work" and expect us to be a mind reader.
In short, we do try and help our customers. I recently fired the person that was handling things, now it's 100% me doing it.
Years ago, I used to watch the live cam shows at Met-Art, which were free. Many of the girls were friendly. But Met-Art stopped those shows, and later put out a--I don't know what you call it--live cam offering that was very different from its first effort, and I stopped watching them, or never really got started watching them, because they were very different from the original live chat shows.
I never got into the paid chat shows, because like you said, they can get very expensive.
I'd guess it is most likely Norton that is at fault, I use Norton on my girlfriend's computer and get false warnings all the time, even for normal sites like CNN. Good that you let us all know, hopefully it is just a false positive.
There are other ways that malware can screw things up.
For example, DDF has a bar at the top with interactions with google plus, facebook, & twitter, it is possible to have malware on your own computer that is redirecting DNS lookups on those popular domains to alternate sites.
Part of my daily job is cleaning viruses off computers, no anti-virus software is perfect. I clean up nasty virus that get on computers that are running Norton Anti-Virus, McAfee, Microsoft Security Essentials, Kaspersky, NOD32, Avast, AVG, the list goes on.
No anti-virus software is perfect, especially when it comes to rootkits which can be very nasty and very evasive. Rootkits often cause very strange things to happen while browsing the web.
In other words, be cautious browsing the web, but also make sure to inspect your own computer thoroughly when anything shows up.
And often double-check your Adobe flash & reader software, and java software, are updated to the current versions. Java especially has been where I've seen most recent malware get in.
Excuse me Pink Panther, but your allegations are completely incorrect. We scan our site everyday for viruses and it is Virus free. What kind of Anti-Virus software are you using? If you let us know we can test it, as some anti-virus give false alarms.
Out of the many thousands of members we have, this is the first we have heard of such a problem. Have you bothered to contact us in anyway before posting such harmful comments? Very unprofessional. I will speak to the IT guys tonight and have them run a check, but this is not something a business with such a high standing reputation would have imbedded on our site. I assure you if you were to contact support about such an issue you would find your accusations completely false, and a solution to your problem.
Please provide us with the name of the Anti-virus you use, and we will perform the tests necessary.
Thank you for the comment PinkPanther, we work hard on our content and continue to try and raise the level on each shoot. Certainly I feel we offer something new and sexy to the bondage website world. Would be very pleased if you decided to 'take the splash' and join. Our previews are something I'm very proud of, sometimes we have so much content in an update I struggle to edit the preview together and show everything ;-)
I'm glad Twisty's managed to sort the problem out. I think that's what's annoying me in that I absolutely know I didn't break the T&Cs, and I'm sure with a bit of investigation the Bryci webmaster would have seen that, but he was on the defensive straight away and to be honest, don't think he could be bothered investigating. He's very quick to call people liars though.
I totally understand webmasters protecting their content, but clearly it's not an exact science. I find it 'strange' that this has clearly happened at least twice with Bryci's website, and that's just with members here.
Skin is my favorite newer model, but I haven't downloaded anything of her on Evil Angel yet, but will now. I didn't even realize Sandy was on there, putting her in a scene with Skin sounds too good to be true!
I was about to post a comment about my newfound interest in Evil Angel, a site, I had only added on my Videobox account before and never thought I would join outright by itself. I like the Voracious one. I'm pretty sure my problem with Kamikaze Love was that I had never seen Kayla Love, or at least I don't remember seeing her before and was hoping for a lot more of her in the scenes.
And to my surprise, I seem to be leaning more away from the softcore. My last 3 joins have been 2 Kink sites and Evil Angel. I would like to think my taste is becoming more sophisticated, but I'm guessing 9 out of 10 people would disagree!
Those body modifications can often resolve controversies over model identities too. Sometimes a model changes her hair colour and style, gains or loses weight and wears very different makeup. Since models appear under many different names, some distinctive tattoo, piercing or scar can sometimes be the only way to be certain she is the same person. It is sad when one can distinguish by means of pre- or post-boob-job.
Your described mix of pre- and post-piercing sets is an interesting example of where the model can be identified without the distinctive feature but where the change in feature dates the sets.
