several older sets "doubled up"

I figured i'd make this a comment rather than edit my review, since I doubt anyone would notice that.

I'm going through the older pic archives and for many sets, probably more than a dozen so far, the first four or five pages are simply repeated, extending the set to eight or nine pages. Naturally this makes the zip-file larger and you wind up with a bunch of superfluous files.

Is this an accident or is it done intentionally? If it's accidental, might I suggest fixing it? If it's intentional, I'd ask what the purpose of it is?

I've avoided downloading certain zips I otherwise would have wanted because of this doubling-up issue.

Drooler (220) One guess I have is that they use some kind of macro or set of macros to process the pics for the galleries: naming the files and putting them into hmtl pages and such. Perhaps a repeat loop was allowed run twice as much as it should have.

I saw the exact same problem just today at Babelicious: a double dose of Dominika in shower.

Good webmasters don't allow such things to happen. They visually check their work and look for the "saboteur," as I call it. They fix problems such as you and I have described before taking the pages live. They have enough experience and enough sense to do these things. They don't take things for granted.

Good webmasters don't have to read people's comments on their sloppy workmanship at sites like PornUsers.

Hi WeeWilly & Drooler,

Been a while, hope all is well. :)

I assure you, this is definitely an oversight. There seems to be no benefit in doing this, whereas there is plenty of negative to it (i.e. our members thinking we're trying to pull a fast one).

Judging by you saying you were browsing the older pic archives, my guess is it's a problem related to when we revamped our members area. All sets that were already in the members area had to get renamed. Unfortunately, it was a big project and one in which mistakes were going to occur.

Can you please e-mail me a few example urls so we can look into it? The more you can send the better, as we will hopefully be able to establish a pattern & pinpoint all sets that are affected. We'll begin fixing all of them one by one.

jeff a.t. karups d0t c0m (lol, can you tell I'm paranoid about bots/spiders?) :-)

Regards,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the quick reply. I will send you some of the set-names after I've located them, but I won't be able to send an URL because my sub has run out. **NOT fishing for any freebies here, either, nor would I accept any if offered. I'm weird about that sort of thing. Not that you would do that any way. I mention it just as an FYI.

Sounds great, thank you. :)

Looking forward to hearing from you and I'll keep you posted on the progress of fixing the affected content once I do.

Hi Jeff,

I went through my first folder and didn't find any. Bear in mind, I have hundreds of zips, so this might take a while. I know I only downloaded a few since I generally peruse the set before taking the zip and when I found one of those, by and large I opted not to DL.

Until I rummage a few up, it might help if I tell you that these doubled sets - at least the ones I saw - ALL occurred in the old pages. I spent almost all my time in the regular amatuers section and athletic amateurs. I worked my way from oldest to newer since I prefer the style of the old sets (I'm an old-school undies fan). I don't recall any in exotics, and I never looked at outdoors, nor any hardcore.

Bear in mind, I wrote the initial comment in regard to this out of curiosity mainly and as a heads-up to you. It wasn't that big of a deal. As you can see by my review, basically your site is tops and I will be rejoining again in a few months to go through the newer stuff.

I will email with info when I can. Hopefully fairly soon.

WeeWillyWinky, I will take a look in the zip files I have on my drives and see if I see this as well and help you and Jeff out.

Also thanks to Jeff for quickly addressing this issue, its that kind of customer service that makes me continue to come back as a member.

Hey Wee,

No problem at all, thanks again for the heads up about it, as well as the kind words about the site. :)

I'll have a couple of people start going through some of the oldest "plain" and "athletic" categories to see if they can find a few examples.

If you happen to stumble across any in the meantime, please let me know.

Regards,
Jeff
