CamgirlCollective: online status

As you might have noticed, the online status of models on CamgirlCollective is not working as you might expect.

Your status stays 'online' as long as you don't manually click 'offline'.

This results in 90% of the camgirls being always online, which is a bit confusing for customers Smiley :D

So we have 2 options to solve this problem:

1. Remove the whole status-field altogether. There won't be any difference between online and offline models.

2. Keep track of your activities on WeCamgirls and CamgirlCollective and keep those times as last-online time. Everyone who's active on 1 of the 2 sites stays 'online' and after 30 minutes your status automatically changes to 'offline'.

Which option do you models prefer?

Minimum price for content 4 sale

We had a poll about a minimum price for content 4 sale on CamgirlCollective. Results suggested that a majority of you wanted a minimum price to prevent people dumping their content online for almost free.

That's why we setup a minimum price of 5 USD for all content. We hope everybody is happy with this price.

Two new achievements

We have two new achievements, the Top Member achievement and the Member of the Week achievement. You can get the first one if you end up in the top 5 of members with the most XP (actually it's 2 till 5) and you get the second one when you gather the most XP in one week. (The count is reset every Thursday when the newsletter is send but you'll keep the achievement and others will have a shot at collecting one too.)

Added rate-labels at CamgirlCollective

After a couple requests we added the option to add labels to your show rates at CGC.

You can now for example add 'Fetish show' as label if you charge more per minute for those shows.

You can add up to 3 new labels and you can edit the existing With Sound and Without Sound label.

We tried to keep it as user friendly as possible, but if things are not clear, just let us know!

Suggestions needed for CamgirlCollective

The implementation of a payment processor is almost ready for camgirlcollective. Now we can focus on the more practical issues of payments. Since you're the experts and users, we would like your opinion about certain things.

Currency
For practical reasons we want to work with a token system. Customers can buy tokens with creditcard. How much dollar cents should 1 token represent?

Picsets
How do you want to upload the pictures? Just selecting multiple pictures on your computer or uploading a zip file? And do customers download a zipfile with the pictures or do they get a thumbnail gallery style page?

Video 4 sale
Do you want customers having the option to download the video or do you want it to be streaming? Do you want your uploaded videos to show screenshots (like on a porntube)?

Booked skypeshows
How do you want customers to pay with tokens? Just arrange a time and send him a payment request? We can all automate that. How do other sites handle this?

If you have any other suggestions or questions, please let us know. We're building it right now, so we are still very flexible Smiley :)

Earn more money with your camgirlcollective profile

We created the option to add an affiliate Id to the camsite links on your camgirlcollective profile. This way you can earn money by directing customers to the camsite you're working for. For now it works with: Streamate (changed URL for everybody, you don't need to do anything), Chaturbate, LiveJasmin, ImLive, Flirt4free, iFriends, ExtraLunchMoney, AdultWork, Cams.com, Camcontacts.com and BongaCams. You will find the new option in the admin. If you don't add an affiliate Id our affiliate Id will be used. This doesn't mean that you'll make less money, but it would be a shame if nobody claims these referrals and we can use it to maintain the site.

New search options CamgirlCollective

Customers now have a couple of more search options:

- Hair color
- Instant Messenger
- Camsite

Try it for yourself:
http://www.camgirlcollective.com/browse.php

BTW, we had to rename a couple of fetishes to comply with creditcard regulations. Dick Humiliation became SPH (Short Penis Humiliation) and Submission became Obedience.

BTW 2, Twitter has changed it's policy and that is why it is not possible to add it to your CGC account as before. Instead of displaying all the latest messages, it will now simply show a link to your Twitter account.

Adult conferences

It's only just June, but in September the conference tour in Europe will start for the adult (mainly camming and adult dating) industry. The first one you can visit is the one in Amsterdam (http://www.webmasteraccess.com/) from September 20 - 23 followed by the Xbiz EU summit in London (http://www.xbizeu.com/) from September 22 - 25. It ends with the European Summit Budapest (http://www.theeuropeansummit.com/en) from September 24 - 27.

As you can see, although they are hosted by different organizations, they are planned so you can visit each one after the other, (and lots of attendees do) to avoid long trips if you're for example from the US.

We'll be attending the one in Amsterdam for sure. It's always interesting to meet new people, visit a seminar and hear the latest news from the industry (and to checkout the parties of course Smiley ;)). These conferences are sponsored by lots of companies and most of them you can register for free if you are an affiliate.

WeCamgirls Survey

We are very happy with the results of the WeCamgirls survey. There where some members who commented that they have some technical or other issues. Since the survey was anonymous we don't know who to contact. If you had/have an issue please contact Rutger.
