Get It Together, Baby!

Consider this an update to my comment of Sept. '07.

The server speed has gotten snappier, but the webmastering problems are still all over the place:

-Inconsistent thumb sizes (often too small, sometimes larger, sometimes a nice large size). At least one recent gallery mixes small thumbs with actual pics! (Check your work, dammit, baby!)
-Inconsistent zips: sometimes all-in-one, sometimes each page has its own zip file.
-Incomplete labeling: In their full lists of updates by month, you can choose solo, g/g, hardcore, or all but in the listings you don't always know if they're going to be videos or photos, without doing extra clicking to find out
-Same old "1600px" photos in portrait orientation that are only 1200x790. THAT's consistent!

I even tried a 800x600 from November 2007 and y'know what? 399x600! Anyway, who the hell wants 800x600 these days? You've gotta be kidding!

They can't even keep the names straight. Clicked on the link to a "Heidi Lee" gallery and she turned into Tecey Heart.

I even came upon some ... broken links! And these were in 2007. And for a gallery (video?) in Dec. 2006 (where I'd last left off), the link took me to the updates for April 2008! (WTF?!)

When I see such things, and so many of them, the thought is "Oh, boy. Well, I guess I can't expect too much from this site." Know what I mean?

(I'm just not gushing over it like they did at Rabbit's. Know what I mean?)

malikstarks (8) The fact is that the Score Group is really a Big Boob/Pornstar company. This site has always had potential, but in my opinion has been a bit of an after thought for them. Their hearts just aren't that much into it, yet they know the teen market is extremely lucrative (if not saturated).

Also for a company whose claim to fame is their magazines, they really need to get their online pic game up to snuff. At least on the Scoreland (their flagship) site they have made some improvements here, but it is still not good enough when many online companies have sets 300-400 pics large. This is a magazine company by the way.

On the positive side, I don't know if you have noticed this before, but if you join this site through the PU link the price is only 19.99 (listed at 29.99) as are all of the Score Group sites.

I did join at the TBP rate (part of my self-rationalizing for rejoining site, though it's been about 17 months since I last did).

I've read, I think at TBP, that it's a magazine-based site, and that's why their photos tend to be grainy in texture. Well, it's an online site, so it should be treated as such. As you say, they need to get their game up. I kind of doubt that they will.

williamj (9) Scores Group always seemed like they have to potential to be a great adult web site company. I joined their busty site and was disappointed. I think they must be running the business on a shoe string budget, taking as much money out of the business as they can and not re-investing. They seem a bit outdated.

It appears to me that the Score Group is a Company that has failed to make the transition to the online format. As a result they are dangerously close to going the way of Playboy and Penthouse. Both aforementioned companies live off their past glory, and the latter I hear is tens of millions of dollars in debt.

In my opinion they (Score) ought to just scrap all their mags and focus solely on their internet sites. Right now they have a bunch sites that have always had potential, but that are simply mediocre at best (with the possible exception of Scoreland) .

I definitely agree: they have potential, but they're not doing anything with it. Magazines, and for porn especially, print media in general, have become an anachronism.

Maybe their revenue streams don't reflect this because their sites fall so sort on quality (and evidence of web competency) that they don't generate enough to make a impression on management? Just wondering aloud.

Bottom line, all of their online properties are currently being seriously outflanked by sites that are simply better.


Scoreland- Brazzers: more pics (although lower quality). Tons more hardcore.

Legsex- HotLegsandFeet

XLGirls- Tough call here but I think BBWpornpass is slightly better

18Eighteen- Take your pic: Abbywinters, Karups, clubseventeen. Hell you might simply do better to just get Brazzers for the TeensLikeitBig site or RealityKings for Pure18; although these sites don't have any soft core content.

40somethingmag- Allover30, Karupsolderwomen

NaughtyMag- Again, take your pic, from basically the same list as 18eighteen but slightly larger.

Ridiculous considering the Score Group has way more resources than any of these companies. I totally simpithize with why you rejoined 18eighteen though. All of their sites have VERY intriguing content. But you get the feeling that they spread themselves too thin to be able to fully capitalize on it.

That's All I will say on this topic, for now. Perhaps I should have started a thread in forum.
