The new site has launched

After missing three public deadlines for launching the new version of Rookie Babe, the site is finally public. It has received something of a facelift (although it looked decent to begin with). Sets are now available to download as zip files and the photo resolution is MUCH higher (between 3000 and 5000px). Finally! The video quality is much higher as well and available for download in a variety of formats including .mp4, .wmv, and whatever the iPod format is.

Now the bad news. This is probably due to the site just now being launched, but it's so slow. If you're downloading something, you cannot load another page. Simultaneous downloads are not an option right now. Hopefully that's just because the server is swamped.

The real bad news is the amount of content is drastically reduced. I suppose they will re-upload old content as they prepare it. However, after stringing along subscribers for over a month, you'd think they would at least build on what they already had rather than taking ten steps backwards.

I like Rookie Babe's content a lot, but this whole website transition has given me a pretty negative impression. I don't think they were completely honest with subscribers and posted unrealistic launch dates. Now that the new site is here, I'm happy, but where is the old stuff? If you're not a subscriber now, I say, wait for a while.

Stay tuned for a full review once the site starts functioning properly and allows me to navigate *while* downloading a file!

Drooler (220) Thanks for this heads up. I'd joined the site once three and a half years ago, back when their "XXL" size was a measly 900px!

Glad that someone has been paying attention. I'll be keeping an eye on things. I really did like some of the content, but didn't like the pic sizes and the "no zips."

Xororos (14) *Update*

The admin has posted a few replies on the Rookie Babe forum. The issue where you cannot navigate the site while downloading (or have parallel downloads) isn't due to heavy traffic - it's an ERROR IN THE SITE!!! Apparently, the issue has been forwarded to the web programmer. Talk about amateur hour.

Also, I got confirmation that the old content will indeed show up at the rate of one set per day as part of the highly touted "daily update" schedule. Those of us who waited around for the new site to launch were rewarded with the prospect of getting the same old stuff all over again. Yes, it's higher resolution, but it's old content!

In light of these new development, I can definitely offer this advice: stay away until Rookie Babe gets its act together. For one thing, Zip files don't save you time if you can't do anything else while they're downloading (one at a time). Plus, there are exactly 31 photo sets (as of 4.23.09). That's hardly worth the increased subscription price (now $29.99 instead of $24.99). What a shame!

Oh, and CCBill is not yet available to new subscribers. Existing subscriptions remain active under CCBill, but new subscribers have to use an alternative billing source.
