Hello NS Community,

We committed to optimizing the site a month ago and we hope you have noticed the performance improvements.  We have been carefully tracking application errors in the backend and happy to announce that we have successfully squashed them.

With that said, we are also bringing on additional support staff in the coming months to help ensure the culture and the quality of our site.  We continue to grow in membership and visitors and we need additional resources to monitor Listings, Reviews, and Forum Posts.

To help pay for our additional staff, we will be launching 3rd party ads for our non-paying members.  These ads are standard practice for all other websites and we feel our visitors should help contribute to the community as they use our resources, information, and member's time.

Our site will still be free of 3rd party advertising for our VIP members.  This is to continue to reward the members who help support NS and we look forward to continuing to grow in the months to come.

Best,
Taylor K.

Mongo shaking head.  It means we will be watching ads for Uber and Chevy.  Mongo would rather have application errors.

What are ya, stupid or something? Ya think a fuck board is going to get ads for a dentist? The ads will be for Ashley Madison, Trusted Fling , Cam Whore sites etc.

No fuckin Uber or Chevy for this joint.

Um he might be more right than wrong.

There are MANY "Ashley Madisons" around.  Just think of how much junk mail you get from those sites.
They throw in the "BOY wants BOY' ads- and "JUST PHONE TONIGHT" ads that are even in newspapers,  and you have a flood of ads.

So................

The ads from 'watch my gf' has underage girls.

I think you need to change it quickly.

Um you don't know that for sure unless you can identify them by names. There are plenty of models or actresses that "look" much younger than their age.

To admin: no problemo. I understand there's no free lunch in life. In exchange for the usefulness and enjoyment out of this site I definitely do NOT mind seeing some ads as my way of paying back.

Keep up the good work Mr. NS  yes

I guess admin is back from vacation.
Hope it was good.

The ads suck and not in a good way.
I am already dizzy from watching that girl bounce up and down.
Maybe have a static ad so that I don't get vertigo!!

And maybe throw in a VIP membership for all the gals that had to endure the "saga".

thanks in advance.

Either buy a VIP membership or use this to get rid of them.

Or if you zoom to 125% the advertisement at the right hand side of the screen (currently an ad for some sex video game) gets bumped down to the bottom..

We are still working with different 3rd party advertisers to pick the right people to work with.  This is just a testing phase so the quality of the ads should improve.

True, many ladies look like they are 15 but in reality they are 25, or even older. And it goes both ways..ever see those stories about beauty pageants for 10 as Nd under? The they get makeup on and look 18.

I don't mind the ads..like you say, nothing is free and they need to pay the bills and make a few bucks too.

Perhaps the they can use another company and stay away from the 'pretend' underage girl ads.

If one thing was learned from a sudden site closing it was having paid staff opens up more for legal ramifications. Thus why they had a volunteer staff of mods.

Visitors who leave reviews and helpful forum posts are already contributing to the site.

Glad I don't have to see the ads, thanks to ad-blocking filters in my browser.

I'm totally cool with not running adblock on sites I frequent so that they earn money from my visits but you guys need to pull that ad with the under aged girls like right fucking now.

I agree 100%.  Not only is the underage (or "pretend" underage--it's the thought that counts) stuff bad, it is going to attract the cops and anti-human trafficking groups.  Does this site really want to be under that microscope?  I'm fine with Ashley Madison and BangBros ads all day long, but kiddie porn ads are really not cool and makes me think twice about being a member here, frankly.

Yeah, we agree.  We've stopped working with the ad network that served the inappropriate ad.  

We are in a testing phase and appreciate you all letting us know about things that could hurt our community.  

Thx

It appears that as NS grows it is looking at ways to manage and optimize that growth.
From what I understand NS started as a pretty grass roots endeavor and perhaps just a "little project". Now that it has gained more members, forums and exposure there are inherent obstacles to continuing with business as usual.  The technical side of running a large site can be daunting.....and as you have indicated you are feeling the need to bring in some paid staff to assist with this project.
At this point I think you need to redefine your goals and objectives with the site.
Additionally you need to look at the RISK factors to you and your staff given the nature of this site.
What are the consequences IF you get taken down? 
I am not going to list all the probable ones here...but I do hope you have good, no make that GREAT, legal counsel.

Are you looking simply for funds to pay the staff....or are you looking to amass enough funds to retire comfortably in on a secluded  tropical island?
Are you able to run this thing essentially by yourself....or would a partnership type arrangement make life easier for you?


As to the ads.....I think the sex ads are overkill....and folks have become numb to the marketing hype.
Folks are already on a sex site...they don;t need more links to other sex sites!!

Why not an ad for a hobby phone?
Or some other tech device that could assist in making this hobby a little less risky?
Or ads for apps that help keep your browsing safe...like "surf easy".

Also, there may be ways to restructure this group....perhaps make it a CLUB....with dues for ALL members......and tiered dues....with perks for the SUPER GOLD VIP members!
Use the model that many health clubs or golf/tennis clubs use. They give you several options based upon your usage and frequency of visits.


Just a few of my thoughts..........and if you have a job opening for me ...let me know. ( just kidding!)

Mistress Montaine makes a salient point and articulated it with aplomb. Myself, I'm not bothered by these ads because I simply tune them out. I don't use an ad blocker either. It is redundant that sex ads would appear here.

Again, a great point and one I believe is a great idea. How about advertising for an e-mail identity masker too?

I'm not on-board with this idea. Some of us simply need to remain non-fee-paying users - for various reasons. Some of us are basically cheap, but there are other money trail and deep privacy concerns as well.

FWIW,
Prison Mike

I'm point for point with you PMoney!  For a lot of reasons I prefer to be with the "Hoi  Polloi" and IMO adding any more to the current structure is very slippery slope.
I can see it now: ...
"You are part of the Vegas cast and therefore unworthy.  Untouchables such as you should be grateful that you can even step foot in NS. Your kind should be Banished to BP forever.  Just the thought of speaking to a Provider that has answered one of your phone calls makes me feel unclean.  Super Gold Double VIP Fourth Level members should not be subject to this!!"  

I'd prefer to have a method by which we can provide a donation.  Not in liu of but in addition to VIP.  Absent the ones that take their entire family to lunch at Costco by going through each sample line 17 times, there are people who would put in. I realize it would be steady but neither are ads. I'm certain I wouldn't be the only one willing to show my appreciation for an excellent product that Benefits all of us.

Good points...and I do understand about staying below the radar, etc.
I have supported numerous causes by simply sending in a money order....a postal money order as they do not ask for any ID.

Sometimes by being a paid member you can weed out a lot of the riff raff...not all of it...but some of it....and it makes people feel as if they are truly a  part of a group...and do have a say in things.

Additionally  I am all for benevolent benefactors to help out the site.......and if you have anything leftover..............and are feeling especially generous...........
there is always the food bank, SPCA, wounded warriors project, and so many other good causes.

Hi All,

Thanks for your valuable feedback.  

As you probably noticed, we have not re-launched any 3rd party ads.  We think the space can be used for better things such as additional ad opportunities for our providers.  We are still thinking of additional ideas and appreciate your support!
