I'm with tdlsn on this one.

I've been a member of this forum for a long, long time, but I don't really post much. I have also bought a lot of clips on C4n and ManyVids but to be honest, I've stopped buying a lot of them because it's just the same repetitive rinse and repeat stuff over and over again.

I remember a while ago folks was leaving comments about some videos and giving critiques but was then bashed down by the same lines that tdlsn said...so I decided to just vote with my money and not buy anything anymore. This forum has changed over the past 6 or 7 years to the point where I really don't spend much time in it. On one hand, there are folks saying "more interaction!" then on the other hand when more interaction happens, it gets shot down with the "well, if it's not your style then don't watch it!".

It's probably why a lot of people prefer to remain silent in the background and to be honest, I don't blame them one bit, over the past few years the forum itself has had a big commercial push going on which ties in with the commercial forum, that in itself is a good thing. What's not a good thing though is the ever-present fear (and that's what it is, let's face it folks) of people being bashed down by other folks who want to dictate terms of what ASFR really is. As for the commercial side of it, yes, its diminishing, but the cookie cutter, rinse and repeat format that the content creators are making over and over again is partially to blame, and because the silent majority in this forum (of which I am a member of) don't want to pipe up and give out opinion without being shot down then yeah, it will affect the content creators.

I'm more than willing to throw a thumbs up or a comment when I see something I like. But if you were to buy something on say C4S, for example, where would you put the upvotes or feedback that is most helpful? I don't see that style of interaction as an option.

Same

I will try to be more vocal again if you want.
if anybody wants a review i just bought one of kendra james' older videos named "Kendrabot inspects new Venusbot 6900!" which i can't recomend enough.

I always just assumed that our money did the talking. I thought that if they are making money, then that shows that we like it. If not, then ask us what you did that we don't like -which I dont believe that I've ever seen. Personally, I feel that if I knew nothing about us and wanted to do videos, then simply go thru this page. See what gets the most views, buzz and comments. Look at which stories are most popular and emulate that. I really dont think it's difficult. But it's like they choose to define the fetish instead of going with what we want. When I wrote a couple stories on here (and I plan on a comeback soon), as long as one person liked it, I was fine. And I was doing it for free! If I got paid for them and no one said anything but sales were through the roof, and only a couple said they liked it, then who cares? I just feel that the ones who contribute so much for free deserve the real verbal feedback. Also, through all these years, we've seen so many people that promise so much and then disappear without even delivering anything at all in the first place. Many of us are simply skeptical. I'm curious as to what other feedback they get from other communities?

The point is: what kind of reviews they want?
Are we expected to review stuff like props, camera work, lighting, acting or general cinematography?
Welp, I don't think so. We are expected to review "the sauce" and say: did this turned us on or turned us off.
The amount of things we like and don't like and complexity of the fetish makes it very hard to establish if something is good or bad.

I think I have a perfect example which is me.
Basicaly I'm a very weird person in the terms of our fetish as I like it pure to the extreme. No porn, no furs, no dicks and muscles and other extra weirdeness for me. Even sex is not a must have but I'm ok with that if it's not done in porn-style-dick-on-the-job-zoom-in style. And I think all that makes me horrbile reviewer.
To make this even more explicit I will refer to Faceoff's manips.
As I mentioned I hate bimbos, with huge boobs, oversized heels, large plastic nails, too much makeup, latex outfits and all that stuff.
So when the new batch of Faceoff's manips pops out I know one thing: they will never turn me on no matter what.
BUT
AT THE SAME TIME I know he's very talented photoshop artist and I admire his skills.
So I think that me doing reviews of his work would be unfair and kinda silly so I choose to remain silent.

For the reasons above I would be horrible reviewer in 99% of cases. Sorry about that.
And I still have "nightmares" about that Mirage guy dealing with reviews.

I think the only solution here is to introduce some kind of formalized way to score content (like n/10 marks). I don't know.

Agreed. An example of this idea for me is that diagnostic scene in the first Fantasy Factory; while obviously a porn flick the scene was with a fembot undergoing diagnostics with only eyes flashing while processing I/O data (with voice I might add) :D . I'm not a producer of anything, but for some reason I believe that those who are can do most production/post production like this scene on a computer.Correct me if needed but that scene for me was executed effectively even without any face-offs,open panels, etc.. (although I enjoy these as well).

Feedback wise, I would imagine acting quality is one of the main things.

Are they getting the robot movements, voice, and general demeanour right? If not, what aren't they getting, and how can they improve it?
Do they look right, do the outfits look the part?

Might say, I'm only giving my vibe on this. But I'm talking from POV of someone who did very little beyond amateur dramatics standards for more than 30 years, so what would I know? :lol: Have done a little TV, have done a bit of period performance stuff as well, so not complete novice, but no one would want me in the movies on here, both on grounds of age, and looks.

But have I played a robot, and got good comments for doing so? Yes, I have! But I doubt what I did would satisfy those around here, lol.

Hopefully some of the other creators/performers could add to this, as they're the ones doing it now, not 60 year olds who would only look good in a full robot body suit! :cry: :cry: :cry:
I'm just a 'girl' who wants to become a fembot whats wrong with that?
