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.

Changing Names… Now up to you!

Our mailbag has overflowed this week with comments about the new “credited” name display in the scene breakdowns. (See our previous post for more details.) So, in response to various concerns, it’s up to you on what name you see. On the PREFERENCES page you can now indicate how you would like your names displayed — either the performer’s “credited” name or their “usual” one. We hope you enjoy this new feature.
