Ok ladies and gentlemen,

I have been busting my chops trying to get everything ready for the world.

I only need to get people submitting galleries, and get some traffic from this point.

I have applied for Chameleon Submitter for the galleries, and am looking into Choker Traffic as well as a few other places for some starter traffic.

I have added some hosted galleries in the meantime just to ill the space.

The idea behind this site is to allow members to vote for their favorite galleries in order to help bring them to the homepage.

At the same time, their favorite galleries are saved to their personal favorites list in a categorized and thumbnailed fashion.

If you want to truly understand the experience, you will need to sign up, and vote for yourself.

Enjoy the site, and I look forward to hearing your feedback, regardless of how good or bad it is.

i would put a quick link to each various type of gallery. For instance,

Anal
Blow Jobs
Blonde
Redhead

That way you don't have to scroll and guess. Otherwise nice site. I like the circular shapes

You say that if you want to truley understand the experience then you would have to join up and try it yourself.

I would think that if they (the porn surfer) didnt understand the experience right away, they wouldnt bother to sign up to figure it out


Just a thought

I like the concept of this site, it's like SocialPorn.com, but you can vote on the image from the gallery instead of just the link to the site. Couple of comments:

- you're skimming content, so it's hard to vote because you're taken to a completely different site.
- I would replace the "VOTE-SAVE-FREE" graphic with the "How does this work?" graphic, or something similar.
- since you have content from a variety of niches, I would consider using a homepage like XNXX.com.

It's not intuative the first time you use it. The reality is, you have to retain site visitors upon first exposure. If they don't "get it" right away, they have already gone somewhere else. And again, skimming defeats the whole purpose of having voting in the first place, no?

But other than that, I think it's an interesting idea. I'm curious to know if bookmarking galleries will lead to higher conversions.

Well, you can't vote on each individual image, but you can comment on them. The main difference between this and socialporn is the traditional thumbed TGP layout.

One of the coolest things about this site is that you don't need to be a member in order to enjoy it. Non-members can see the site as a normal TGP, skim and all.

Once they are a member and logged in, the skim dissapears, and they can now vote, as well as save their favorites to their own personal thumbnailed favorites list.

I keep changing how the homepage looks near the top with different graphics, and lures. I am attempting to grab the attention of the skims from other sites before they close it.

So far I haven't had much luck, but I am working on it.

As a surfer, I can't stand that type of landing page. Mainly because the thumbs are usually misleading, and I never find the actual gallery in the category page.

I have clicked into a few of them, but for the most part, I just close the window.

It's bad enough I have the disclaimer page there. heh

I will keep changing it a bit until I see people actually going from the homepage into the more info page. I am trying different things that would make me stay from skim, but skim is a pretty hard thing to capture attention from as you probably already know.

Me too!

So far in the week that I have been open, I have 42 registrations.

Not too bad so far I think. Better than most startup forums or other community startup attempts I think.

22 of them are partners, and the rest are not. Partners also get the same features as regular members.

I will obviously keep working at it, and trying to find more efficient ways of bringing people in. I know first hand how hard it is to get registrations on a new site. I can only imagine a porn site. lol

alot of that is built into comus, everytime a surfer clicks on a thumbnail, it's a registered click and votes can be set that way, it's how you toplist them
