new site

It seems something a bit strange is going on here. The site tour is very vague as to the quality and quantity of content. Then I see two newbie reviews in two days that say very little in the way of specifics, but rave about the site. One claims to be a member over 6 months and the other over 3 months. I see on TBP that there are only 10 videos, about 15 minutes each and in one of the reviews it says the pictures are not even downloadable. Rabbits Review in April listed 6 videos. I could easily download 6 or even 10 videos in under a half hour. How could anyone stay a member for more than 3 months, let alone 6? This quite simply doesn't add up.

PinkPanther (46) Well, mbaya, let me remind you that though it doesn't have hardly any content, it does have

- Elegant design with ease of navigation

So there you go!

lk2fireone (194) I have to admit that I've been searching for a paysite with elegant design with ease of navigation, but I'd also like a bit of great content to go along with it. So I'm afraid that I'll have to keep searching.

If I had a pet talking bird, I would certainly teach it to say, "Elegant design with ease of navigation."

Denner (233) 92 and 97 for this site - with that kind and amount of content - strange.
And ok, we all got different taste, but to name Kedra "one of the most beautiful, sensual and sexy women you will ever see"........?
At first hand I'd like to get pissed and think: friends and/or relatives of siteowers - but then again - just take it with a LOL.
Good point/input here, mbaya!

Would never try to fool anyone, especially not those who I know do their best to give honest and worthwhile reviews of sites.

Yes, I did let my members know that the site was listed and to leave their opinions. I also told them not to use their regular member names and to be honest in their opinions.

Am I upset to think that maybe they're being "nice" and not totally objective, yes, actually. As I stated in the Site News when I first put the site up for review...I would much rather have honesty than someone being kind so as not to hurt my feelings.

I'm a big girl. I can take a hit.

I want to say a big Thank You to everyone who's commented here. I appreciate the reality of newbies on a review site and I appreciate the fact that those of you who aren't just taking their word for it are posting your own thoughts.

I would like to add that mentioning a listing in my free chat room, while perhaps shameless promotion...wasn't intended to curry favor or accolades, it was intended to have my members actually speak their minds and get feedback on what they do think of what I've come up with so far.

Thanks for your time,
Kedra

P.S. I, personally, am not a fan of the site design..if I had a pet talking bird...I'd be teaching it to say "Screw Elegance!"

Welcome to PU.

I didn't mean to come off like a dick-hole or anything, I was just joking around with my fellows.

I haven't been here for long, but I have been here long enough to see shining reviews of new sites that come about from a webmaster mentioning to users that "There is this site called Porn Users and...."

I do believe that these people love you and your site, and maybe they might even be right, but they are biased and these reviews don't matter much. It is easy to know which reviews to trust, because of our trust ratings system and group of dedicated users. Will the guys who posted the positive reviews stick around here and do reviews of other sites? The regular users won't buy the reviews and I think even your casual user wouldn't either.

If you have a good site, and I'm sure you do, good reviews will come. You gotta pay your dues and do your time first.

I fully agree with you and I completely see your side.

At the same time, when users who don't know about the review sites become members...it would be my hope that me sending them here has a lot more purpose than just to post their opinion of "my" site. I would hope that they WOULD stick around and take advantage of the listings and become long term users/reviewers.

Everyone has to start somewhere, right? If I can help to bring more people into the community by asking them to be involved in the development process of my own site...wouldn't that translate into something more tangible for PU as well? I'd like to think so. Even if it's only one out of 10...that one should mean something, shouldn't it?

Maybe part of the reason that they are biased is because I don't treat my members like wallets...they are the ONLY reason that I do what I do and they know that their opinions matter. I wouldn't have been here for so long if it weren't for them.

Do I make money in the process? I hope to, but I have been a live-cam model for almost ten years and many of the members (please remember this is my first site in all that time) have known me for most of those years.

You are absolutely right...they are biased! LOL *tries to wipe the stunned, just realized face off* They have had the chance to see more than just a few vids and photo sets. They know me and have a lot of insight into who I am.

Thank you James. I really do appreciate you taking the time to explain your earlier post and to give me the opportunity to see a different perspective. Eye opener, for certain.

Have a great one!

Thanks for your posts, Kedra - makes me see why your members are so fond of you. I see nothing wrong with internet models or anybody involved in running a site encouraging their members to let other people know what they think of the site - you're not running it for nobody to ever see it, after all.

The reviews will have no meaning, though, if they are so over-the-top that they aren't believable. They'll just be dismissed by many, as they have been here, as bad advertising attempts, which might be entirely unfair to your site.

Wow, a REASONABLE webmaster, a rare find these days :-).

IMHO (though there can be disagreement from other members or even PU administration, I'm not sure) there is nothing wrong with posting link to PU on your site. On the other hand, for a PU review to be taken seriously, it's not enough to say something like "Kedra is the most beautiful girl on the planet", it's necessary to elaborate; the problem IMHO wasn't THAT your members wrote reviews, the problem was HOW they wrote their reviews: it looks that they've just tried to do you a favor, putting high ratings without enough explanation, which in fact lead to the exactly opposite effect, causing suspicions of dishonesty etc. And I have no idea if it's at all possible to avoid such effect when publishing a link to PU for site members :-(.

Ok, now you guys have turned me all blushy and speechless, toe draggin in the sand kinda thing.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has posted...for not only making me see things in a different light, but also for giving me the chance to explain where I'm coming from and actually taking the time to read through my responses and not just blowing me off.

When I saw the first user review, I fully expected some flaming. I didn't expect anyone to take Me seriously when I explained my position, though. Too much time on some of those webmaster boards, I guess.

Thank you guys.

I'm really glad that I put the site up for review and that you guys have been so supportive in explaining to me why you expressed your concern/disbelief at the user reviews already posted. You guys are teaching ME a lot in a very short time. I really do appreciate it.

You guys RAWK!!!

mbaya (356) REPLY TO #11 - Kedra :

Since I started all of this, I feel obligated to have something constructive to say. I think that reviews must be written as objectively as possible, while also taking into account our own particular bias. That means that you have to back up your opinions and add enough facts so that your point of view is convincing. What would would have worked much better here were some comments, not reviews. A comment doesn't mean as much, but also doesn't need to have as much backup. At the least, a comment is not pretending to be something it is not. By the way, thanks guys for all your responses. Good looking out!

LOL No sarcasm intended at all, asmith. I was completely serious.
This is a learning experience for me, through and through.
Yes, I've been in this biz for a long time, but I've never done a content site. I've never been a webmaster, had to advertise, been "my boss", or any of the other things that are going along with this new adventure.

When I listed as an amateur site, I wasn't joking. Hell, all I've ever HAD to do was interact with my friends and play with my toys. LOL All of this is new to me and I am picking everything up as I go. You guys helping me to get a better idea of what happens here...is fantastic, IMHO.

mbaya, I appreciate your reply, too. I will remember, in the future, to ask my members to stop by and leave their comments, not necessarily post a review. Thank you for taking the time to add to your original comment.

As for your request for more info...I haven't made any response to that yet because I really wasn't sure if I should. The site is about me and that's what you will see. Pix of me playing with my toys and being silly with the camera. Me, experimenting with fetishes that I've learned about as well as those that I enjoy. Videos of everything from me masturbating in the shower to making out in the park with a girlfriend. I've never been on cam with a man and I don't know if that will be an addition later on or not. I'm still thinking about it. Both the free blog (linked in the tour) and the member blog are updated on a regular basis, though I do add more to the member blog and more often. I have just added free, anything goes, live shows for my members and custom videos/pic sets for those who have something specific that they would like me to shoot.

Let's see...quality...I usually shoot with an HD video camera, though some of the vids have been resized to standard because of additional non-hd cams being used for different angles. I'm also working on switching all of the vids over to H.264 Flash files, again...issues with the CMS making that difficult, but I'm working on it and trying to learn a new one so that I can switch the entire site over soon.

All of the pix are done in high res and I do have those sets available in larger sizes than the display sets online, for those who request them. The only photo-shopping I do is to add my watermarks, resize for upload and brighten up some dark ones, for the sets.

I do try to add content once a week, though I shoot and edit all of my own stuff, so some weeks there are more additions than others. Umm...anything else you'd like to know, from my side? Feel free to ask.

Wow this got long! I'll shut up now!
Thanks again for the great feedback guys!!!
