Well folks, the crew at vb has been working with great success on new and innovative ways to kick shit into the faces of their customers.
First, a couple of weeks back they decided to hide the daily updates. They moved them from the home page to another page on the site so you would have to click through a couple of pages and search for them. They did not announce this change, but after lots of complaints they posted a blog with an explanation that pretty much said "Tough Shit" this is what we want to do. Clever huh? Actually, since most of the updates the last few months have been old blurry low def scenes, tranny's and other such crap, not being able to find the updates is kind of a blessing in disguise.
Second, two big changes to the site today, the first one is, ITS GONE!!! Site has been down most of the day. If you try to connect, even as a visitor, you get the dreaded 404 blank page. If you do get through, the wait for a scene to load is upwards of 2 minutes.
Third, on the chance that you do get to log on, they have introduced the "guess the star" game. This game is simple. They just quit posting the name of the star or stars on all of the scenes. So its like pot luck without the luck!!! Unless you can recognize each of the several thousand stars on the site, its just a big crap shoot!
Stay tuned for more updates on the most shabbily run pornsite on the web.
I subscribed to VideoBox for the first time in over a year this week. They have a new(er) feature called "Flow Mode" that's an alternative way to browse random video clips. When you select Flow Mode rows of clips start scrolling across your screen. All the clips are playing (no volume) so you get a quick preview. If you click a clip it expands and starts playing from where it left off in Flow Mode. There is also a filter option that lets you use Flow Mode for a specific niche.
For some time now Videobox also delivers some updates as "HD", being 720p resolution. While those videos really contain that resolution, they actually look quite blurred and bad compared to the usual 720p quality i know. Making me wonder, if they maybe just create this HD from a DVD source and just upscale it.
I can't recommend anyone who looks for HD videos to join. If you are satisfied with DVD quality though, this site is just fine.
This morning VB didn't post today's updates, only yesterday's updates were shown. Later in the morning the site is down; no video's, no updates, can't even log in. Stay away, there is no infrastructure, technical expertise or customer support on this site.
Videobox VB3 is working this morning............IF you don't mind waiting up to 60 seconds for a scene to load. VB2 is working fine as usual. Guess the VB crew took the day off to watch a parade somewhere.
Basically I agree with all the good and positive things said about VB in the reviews but I do wish to mention a consistent problem with their latest version VB3: there are many times when it takes ages to connect, there are almost daily occurrences of everything freezing when you try to judge someone's comment (thumbs up, thumbs down) or post a comment yourself, or when you try to re-load a page.
Download speed has always been consistently good for me for the past 6 months so I lay the blame squarely on some fault within VB3. I have been going back to the old VB site on a regular basis because I've had absolutely no problems with it.
I think they had better keep it going for another little bit until all the bugs in VB3 have been ironed out.
PS. Sorry, I forgot that I made a similar remark back in January, but in defense of this one .. in January I blamed overloaded servers, this time I blame a buggy system because my downloads were consistently fast (as mentioned) and I had no problems with the old server.
