C4S

Postby taniatv » Fri Jul 16, 2010 2:48 am

Am I the only one, or are others starting to feel that the general discussion forum is becoming more and more a place for people to advertise their C4S offerings? It is getting to the point where I am considering leaving this site because of this blatant spamming!

If there are others who feel as I do maybe there should be a separate forum for these people to advertise that the rest of us can just ignore?

When I joined here this was a great place to come, but I feel that is has succumbed to commercialism.......

Now I understand if I'm excluded from this topic as I'm obviously one of the girls posting when my lipstick clips are available. I've seen the number of C4S girls double at least in the few short months I've been frequenting this forum. I've seen undertones in other topics of the distaste for the situation, and I completely understand. There are, however, people on the forum who have asked me to let them know when I update. I understand that it could be quite annoying to come to a fetish forum and see nothing but advertisements for C4S pages, especially if you've been gracing the forum for a while.

Maybe adding a "plug" forum would help? Kind of like how craigslist realized early on that if they didn't have the "Erotic Services" section on the site then the sex workers would only flood other categories with the ads. By giving them a category and a place to post, all scandalous postings elsewhere could be promptly flagged and deleted. This keeps (almost) all the kink out of the rest of craigslist. I think this might be kind of similar, without illegal prostitution, lol. The spamming and posting of clip sites will continue to happen. I'll tell you from experience I track my traffic and a post at the top of the general lipstick forum with a link will bring in over 500 hits per day. The traffic is here, and traffic means money. So clipsite models will be here. If you gave them/us their/our own thread, it would group it all together so anyone who wanted to avoid it altogether just doesn't browse that forum, and people who are looking for it will find it.

I'm not coming in asking for administrators to add a section of the site for me. I don't want to come across that way at all. Personally, it would be in my best (financial) interest to keep my posts mixed in with the rest of the 'legit' lipstick fetishists' posts, but I completely understand the frustration of losing a forum to spammers. I'm just offering a possible solution to a seemingly growing unrest.

Please also know that I tried to remain as impartial as possible in this posting. Meaning that if I came across overly crass, detached or aloof I didn't mean it. I really am enamored by lips, lipsticks, kisses and pouts. I am grateful to have found this board. Already found a few really cool people on here.

@taniatv : I did not even know what C4S was untile the other day. The way I see it is these girls have a right to present themselves however they wish. They are not FORCING anyone to buy their clips. People buy the clips because they want to.

I am here just because I like makeup, lipstick and love the guys here.... I can't imagine cgarging because I'd be humiliated when I made one dollar in 6 months. Hehehehehehe...

The guys here were always generous. No one ever had to advertise a pay service.... so I understand your concern. Just remember, it takes all kinds... some men prefer to pay... some get off on it... many like Dommes,,, I just happen to be primarily submissive. So.. thank god it takes all kinds or I'd have no one interested in what I bring to the forums.

I do worry about being resented by C4S girls because I am here for fun.... well.. worry is a strong word. I don;t care what anyone things but I definately don't want to make anyone feel unimportant.... even by accident...you know?

Just have fun...

The guys that I bhave known for over a decade love when you have fun with it and enjoy yourself... more than anything :)

I understand what you're saying Tania, but calling it "blatant spamming" simply isn't true. If any C4S girls (or anyone else for that matter) post non-lipstick content here, they will be politely warned and, if they don't get the message, banned. We do benefit from some really nice stuff being posted here by way of teasers (not least by Cora), and the girls often produce videos based on requests from here. Of course in return they get customers. It's a two-way street, and I think it's pretty fair and beneficial to both parties. Inevitably some won't "get" the subject, some will learn from the feedback they receive and tailor their output accordingly, while some will decide it's not worth the effort. I think there is a degree of natural selection involved.

I do appreciate and agree that we don't want the forum to be submerged with those type of posts though. I don't think we're at that stage yet, but there are a few options open if we feel the situation is deteriorating; a C4S posticon, restricting the girls to one thread each (which many of them do voluntarily anyway), and, ultimately, a separate board. As Cora says though, this would reduce the interest and exposure they get, and possibly many would decide not to bother at all.

As always though, we are listening and watching and rest assured it hasn't gone unnoticed.

Wolfboy,

I take your point, but when I logged into the site a couple nights back 5 out of 7 updates were C4S related! I'm sorry, but to me that is just pure commercialism! I do appreciate what you said about the content of many of the C4s being lipstick-related, but it just seems to me that it has gotten totally out of control! As I said before, it appears to me that the General forum is almost totally now a C4s forum - maybe it should be renamed accordingly and a new general forum created? Maybe a filter can be added so that any C4S post can be ignored?

The end of this fabolous board

Postby kawaninja » Tue Jul 20, 2010 8:29 pm

I believe that the good time of this forum is gone. For me its only a clips4sale forum and no more a lipstick fetish forum. Only girls who want to sell their clips, and comments only for girls who sell their clips or pics here.....
Its sooo sad what this board has gone to.....

But I will look here from time to time....

Enjoy...

Hey Moderators - how about having a category for adverts leaving this free for non commercially motivated picture and video finds?

So it's far better for NO ONE to post anything at all, which typically happens every weekend, than for a plethora of lipstick content to be made available for pocket change nearly every day? If you prefer to see a 350x400pixels grainy image found on the internet randomly of "lipstick content" than a 10-minute HD clip of a gorgeous woman smearing a color you've requested onto her lips in exchange for less than the price of a sandwich, then goodbye. :roll:

Trooperbill,

I know that I'm a lowly lurker with less than 6 months membership on the forum, however I couldn't agree with you more and have considered posting the same thing. While I believe the clips4sale have a valuable place on the forum, it seems as if 50% or more of the posts are clips4sale. Wolfboy, would you consider a separate forum for clip4sale advertisements? BTW - the forum is fantastic and I appreciate all the energy that goes into being the administrator on. You rock! :lips:

YOU KNOW DARN WELL THAT ONE COULD EASILY SPEND OVER A HUNDRED DOLLARS A DAY OR A WEEK FOR THESE CLIPS,IT'S A VIRTUAL MONEY PIT!!! AND A EASY CAPITAL FOR THE GIRLS WHO PROMOTE THEIR CLIPS!!!AND YOU KNOW WHAT???SOME OF THESE CLIPS ARE NOT THE BEST QUALITY!!! SO YOU SEE YOU BUY A SANDWICH AND END UP WITH A FOUR COURSE MEAL!!!!SORRY TO SAY THIS,BUT EVERY TIME I GO TO THIS SITE<I WONDER IF TO TAKE OUT THE CC!!FROM NOW ON I'M BANNING THE CLIPS BRIGADE!!!!AND TO ADD ANOTHER THOUGHT_ THESE GIRLS HAVE MORE THAN 15-20 OTHER CATEGORIES<NOT SOULY FOCUSED ON THIS FETISH!!!!!FOR SOME OF YOU THAT STILL PURCHASE CLIPS<MORE POWER TO YOU...FOR SOME OF YOU TO SUGGEST A SEPARATE VENUE,I COULDN'T AGREE MORE WITH YOU.
