Web site redesign?

I haven't been a member in quite a while because of their lack of fisting scenes in most of the new models over the last year + and chaotic release schedule, but I did notice that they seem to have gone through a site redesign. Is this the case? They at least changed the preview area a little bit so that's why I ask. Is the members area any better or is that still the same as always?

Hi MargulisAZ - Glad you noticed our redesign. We did this to
make our free area more similar to our member's area. The Members
area design and navigation is being improved on a daily basis, so
it is much more than a "New wrapper" :-)
I'm a little confused by your "chaotic release schedule" comment.
What is chaotic about releasing new complete photosets and/or
Hi-Def video every day of the week? It does not get anymore regular
than that. We put the Update History in our free tour to alleviate
any confusion.

Chaotic release schedule referring to the fact that a model's content has no organized way of being released. As opposed to pretty much every other site out there that either releases a model's content immediately or over the course of a week or so, it can take Alsscan months and months to release everything from a model's shoot.

Releases at ALS Scan are very much dependent on member feedback - if they're hearing from members that they want to see more more more of a certain model, they'll put up her stuff fast. If they don't hear from members, it can be a long time - a year or more - before more of her scenes are put up.

Not a problem to me.

Difference of opinion then. I know that's how Als works as far as updates go, but there have been multiple times in the past that I like a model that is apparently not popular, and as you say, it can take months to a year to see all the content. I ask the question why have a system where that is even an option to happen? Why not just release all a model's content over the course of a few weeks and not leave anyone out who may like a model the masses do not?

Hi MargulisAZ, Again it is very organized. In our members section, we allow members to vote on the order of a models scene release. Voting is open for each model for a period of one week. After that, we release the models scenes in the order selected by our members. We get great feedback from our voting process. When we shoot a model we shoot 5-7 times the content that other sites shoot at a given time. This is because we fly them out and they stay for a while so we shoot as much of them as possible while they are here. It is not like in LA where the model drops by for a photoset and video and then drives home. We show a promo page of that model to give our members an idea of the content that was shot and allow them to vote on the order of their favorite scenes. Nothing chaotic about it. If we chose not to show a model's promo page and simply release a scene at a time like all of the others sites out there then you would be none the wiser. We do this for the members. So you slam us for providing more information to our members and for allowing our members to vote and have a say? Think about - all we have to do to counter your comment is not show a model's promo page.

Editing to try to avoid repeating what Sarah said above

She makes the point of how much more material thay shoot than can be posted on a regular schedule - so why don't the less popular models show up more?

They wouldn't be as successful if they were posting the less popular models in place of the more popular models so it wouldn't be in their interest to do so.

The thing to do with ALS Scan, since you say that you know that's how they work, is to make your voice heard. When you like a model, e-mail them, make sure they know. If there's material that you've been waiting for but haven't seen, e-mail them, make sure they know. Because, as you and I both know, it's not just the order of scenes, but when or if the scenes show up at all.

There have been times when a model was mentioned in the Director's Blog or a Casting Special and then you never see her material because they're more excited about other models and so are the members.

I'm encouraging them to put up some Anita Pearl stuff from the Caribbean '09 trip. Every pic I've seen of her and every moment of vid, she looks fantastic, but they haven't put up anything featuring her - apparently they have quite a bit, so I'm hoping to see more of her very soon - If not, I'll keep asking.

Look, I understand your point of view. The way I used the word "chaotic" is different than the way you perceived it. Maybe I should have used a different word instead. I agree that the way you release new content is streamlined for the way you have chosen to do it. My point was that I personally like more of a consistent release schedule of 1 particular model's content, not leaving it up to chance, votes, etc. The whole point I was trying to make boils down to one simple thing:

When a new model is shot for your site, no one really knows when they will be able to see all of the content of that shoot, or how long it will take to release. Often times it takes a long time, as it's already been said. I do not like this, perhaps many others do, which is fine, but it's not for me. That's where my definition of the word chaotic was coming from.

I like your replies PinkPanther and appreciate your points of view. I agree that if there is content of a particular model you need to bug them a bit, but to be honest I've done that in the past and still didn't see a lot of what I asked for so I lost interest in doing that. Again, maybe that's just because my tastes aren't often in line with the norm (just look at a bunch of the sites I review). And yes, from a business standpoint it does make sense to release what is popular. I just don't like that system of releasing content because like you said again in your recent reply, there is a lot of content you see on promo pages that you just never see, literally, ever. Perhaps I'm the 1% of the population that has a problem with that, but hey, that's me.

I agree with you here, even if "chaotic" is not the right word; maybe "non sequential" is a better term.

I would like them to at least once -- just once is all I ask -- select a new model, without previewing her to members, and release all of her material, and in order. And all of it would be released within a short time period, say a month, no ifs, ands, or buts. Then, since everything seems to be based on what members say, see if this even popular, or if they should just stick with the current system.

Personally, it is one of my pet peeves concerning the site. I know I didn't mention in my review a year ago, but I did when I reveiwed ALS Angels, where they do the exact same thing. I just know there is more material out there, because the webmasters say there is, and some models have little content posted, but I also know all of it won't necessarily get released anytime soon, if ever. I understand they want to please the majority of members, and therefore what and who wins the most votes will see the light of day, or members' area of the site (no wonder I hate democracies...), but it's got to be irritating if you always vote for models/scenes that don't make the cut, so to speak.

I am afraid I am part of that 1% (if even that) that you mentioned, so don't worry, you're not alone here. I also miss their somewhat harder stuff, rather than the focus on glamor and tease, among other things.
