Better, But Still Needs Work

I'd been away from this site for about a year. On the current join, I found some good improvements but also some things that had kept me away since the last time.

Being a pic fiend, I'll focus on that. Since mid-January this year, they've been doing pics in 3 sizes -- 1024, 1600, and 3000 -- with zips for each size. (Funny how the reviews have missed this.)

But they're still reposting older sets in 1024 on weekends. I wonder if they could repost them at least in 1600 instead. They've got some very nice "legacy" material of girls like Breanne Benson, Aneta Smrhova, and the latina Marlena, but these are nothing new to long-term fans of the ATK sites. They're just re-runs. Why not do "encore presentations" instead? ;)

And the thumbs for the newer galleries are bigger (good) than the older ones, so you get this mix of thumb sizes in the gallery listings (bad), the 125px thumbs mishmashed with 200px thumbs. It looks really tacky.

Who cares, you ask? It's why we have building codes, clothing sizes, paper sizes, and layout concepts. What would you think of a product catalogue that mixed different sizes of images on a grid, with big, empty white spaces above all of the smaller ones? Anyway, don't even think of asking me "who cares?" I don't fucking care if you don't. Go write to the International Organization for Standardization and tell them you don't care.

Getting back into the site after a year meant going through the many categories and trying to catch up. They've got 13 softcore categories and 10 hardcore categories. OK, fine, variety is the spice of life and this much has got to be the stuff of five-alarm chili, but why not have a straight chronological list to keep things simple? I mean, I don't want to have to think in terms of "dime pieces" or "masturbation" OR "toys." Just who and when will suffice.

Besides, once you get into a category, the only heading at the top of a list of galleries (this is also called a gallery) is the number of the gallery of galleries. "Gallery 84," for instance, of 16 thumbs to galleries. Of what? Like, where am I? There it is, in the browser's title bar! "nudism 84."

I know, they're trying to keep things organized, and they do, but it doesn't work anyway when you have to struggle to maintain a sense of virtual place while you're trying to enjoy the pictures of naked women.

Still, with the caveats explored above, I'd recommend the site. There's some very nice exclusive material. Quite a lot of it, in fact.

Now gimme those raffle tickets! LOL

Capn (28) If I am playing catchup on an ATK site, I usually work from the model index alphabetically from one end of the alphabet to the other.

It is a long journey, but usually a very enjoyable one.

It's me again. I hope everyone has been doing great. We have been very busy at ATK and I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for taking a fresh look at the site for us. We are always interested in our members thoughts about the site.

I wanted to address on thing in the review and that is the different sizes in the thumbnails. We are going to launch a redesign of the site in about 3 weeks. The bigger thumbnails you are seeing is going to be the new size on the redesign. We made the decision to start creating the new thumbs now so there will be less thumbs we have to change when the site is launched. I hope that makes sense.

I completely understand your point about them not matching or lining up correctly but it is just a temporary issue.
