MercedesBBW.com - 4 Sites For The Price Of One?



Or One Fourth Of A Site For The Price Of One?

Decide for yourself...

No, this ain't a MercedesBBW.com bashfest. To bring my perspective perfectly across: I'm convinced that it's up to each one's own considerations how to run a business. Or a paysite. Now, within the last 5 years or so i'm joining about 4 sites each month. Sometimes i keep my membership recurring for another month or two. Or i cancel and join other sites instead. In other words i have seen hundreds of sites. Now when i find that a site runs things differently i will point that out. Yes, i will tell the facts.

So what's different with Mercedes' site? On the bright side of things she definitely has one of the hugest collections of black BBWs available on the net, no doubt about that. Amongst those are a few hundred exclusive shots of beautiful Diamond, the super pear, a super legend for sure. But, as i said, there are plenty of other girls to find attractive...

Ok, once you've signed up you will go to a gallery, click an image and ... at first there will happen ... NOTHING ! Your screen will remain black, only your browser be telling that a java applet is being launched. After 8-10 secs finally you will see a photo.. but, hence the java applet, you won't be able to save that pic to your disc, at least not by standard means.

Clicking through the galleries it soon becomes clear: About 95 - 99% of the pics (at least of those models i checked) are sealed that way. In other words there are almost ZERO IMAGES that you can download.

To make things even more annoying, that java applet frequently won't load at all (even clicking the same image again and again won't help) and also, after a certain time, crash your browser inevitably.

To sum things up: First it takes MULTIPE TIMES LONGER (with every image) to get it loaded at all. Secondly there's almost no downloadable content. And third there are these constant technical issues. In many years, after joining hundreds of sites, i haven't seen anything like that. Ok, BrieBrown.com has a few of her very first galleries sealed that way too. But because all her newer (and IMHO more interesting) galleries, in other words approximately 90% of her content is downloadable, i don't see an issue here.

Granted, when you're saying that you only wonna see the pics on your screen and don't want to save them for offline watching later, then you don't have a problem here. Except with those centuries it takes to load every photo.
However, everyone i've spoken to joins a site in the expectation to find the member pics downloadable. Cause that's what all the other sites are offering. MercedesBBW.com will prove such expectations wrong.

Now, once the question of downloadable pics on her site is getting discussed on boards like dimensions (i'm saying 'discussed' and don't mean 'flamed') you can hold every bet that MercedesBBW herself will get outright furious, as you can see here. Of course she won't deny the facts (sealed pics, java applet issues).. she simply can't... longwindedly will she rather accuse everybody of attacking her, being on a crusade against her, "beheading" her, trying "to destroy" her.

Anywayz, i would have forgotten that drama if she didn't get started again and again. Quite recently there was a member of her site asking for help on Dimensions, after he couldn't see any pics at all (most likely the java applet wasn't working) and Mercedes didn't return his emails, at least not within a couple of days. The few replies posted in this thread were all friendly, just one poster assumed that the old Java might be acting up. Enough for MercedesBBW to contact the moderators (there ain't no other explanation) to delete that thread - which is quite sad cause the board rules clearly are saying:
"Those interested in frequenting paysites, on the other hand, are encouraged (in addition to expressing their boundless admiration of all that abundant beauty) to describe their experiences, both good and bad, so that the board also works as a clearinghouse, rewarding those who do a good job and encouraging improvements where needed."

Ok, so we are reminded that nothing has changed on MercedesBBW.com.
