Can you ear me now?

Due to their utter ubiquitousness, we’re no longer listing “ears” as a piercing location on actresses. We never used to — we took pierced ears as a given — but in recent months we’ve been getting submissions about pierced ears and after heated debate among the editors, we gave it a try. After a few months, it doesn’t seem to be worth the trouble. All ear related piercing data has been purged (only 200+ actresses out of 35,000 had the data, so it was statistically insignificant anyway). To reflect this shift, the piercing field is now more explicitly labelled “Non-Ear Piercings.”

Clearing Out Some Backlog

Our submissions queue has two components; one for incoming stuff, and one for stuff that needs to be discussed or researched. The incoming queue is in a managable state, but the research queue isn’t; so we’re in the process of clearing it out. Something things we did were never marked as “completed” – so if you an e-mail that’s closing a topic from a year ago, that’s why. :-) Thanks, all.

Cheap Plugs

I don’t think I properly raved about Videobox. We have been using their service for quite some time here at IAFD HQ and were very exicted when they approached us about coming on-board to provide downloadable movies (in WMV) for both straight and gay (via VideoboxMen) men. They add 5 DVDs worth of stuff per day, and their interface is perhaps the nicest one I’ve ever seen — you can download scenes or parts of scenes at a variety of bitrates, up to DVD quality. I’ve personally been a member before they came onboard in the price search and it’s just been terrific.
