Couple big things today:
- we added a new menuing system to the site, so things should be easier to find
- We added information on over 18,000 gay movies and 30,000 gay performers, so we’re now the biggest site of our kind on the net.
- You can turn off the display of gay titles and performers by using the handy “Show Gay Info” toggle in the upper right corner. You’ll need cookies enabled for it to work.
Thanks to everyone for all your support and comments, and we hope to get even better in the coming months. Keep the cards and letters coming — you can send comments to email@example.com
You may have noticed that we have started to add a lot of “Unknown” performers to our database. After much discussion, we have decided that, although we can’t view every title and know every performer, we would be doing a disservice to our visitors if we didn’t attempt to identify as many cast members as possible. Most of the “Unknowns” have headshots, and we are hoping that you, our faithful contributors, will, as time passes, attach names to all those faces. We thank you in advance for continuing to make iafd the best adult reference site on the Web.
If you’re experiencing pop-ups using a non-IE browser when you hit a page with an Adult DVD Daily banner on it, be aware of two things: 1. It’s not harmful and 2. It’s not harmful.
Adult DVD Daily is (inexplicably) putting images served over HTTPS on their banners which is causing a certificate to pop up for non-IE users. (I’m assuming that IE trusts their CA by default, and Firefox doesn’t.)
We correct it as soon as we notice it.
The alternative is for you to accept the certificate, and you won’t be bugged by the pop-ups. We’ve been working with ADD to make sure this keeps from happening in the future.
We added a new filter to the new headshots page — you can now hide the boys or the girls, depending on whom you’re interested in. Our staff has been going crazy adding new headshots to the site, and we now have over 6,000 performers who have pictures along with their filmographies. Those pictures also pop up if you hover your mouse over the performer’s name throughout most of the site…
Back in the day, Peter and I (with help from Alexandria Silk (iafd), Luc Wylder (iafd) and N. Smith) would host a little get together during ECVS in Atlantic City for posters to RAME. There were attempts to duplicate the same during CES/AEE but it never really gelled until Steph and Drew from adultdvdtalk came around and made it happen.
We’ve been happy to sponsor the party for as long as they have been accepting sponsors, and this year was no different.
We did want to send a shout-out and hearty attagirl to Devinn Lane (iafd) who (from where I sit) really kicked ass in the co-ordination department — from procuring a sweet 51st floor penthouse at the Palms (far too cool for us nerds) to making sure all the liquor got packed in suitcases to get by the security guys… just a top notch job… thanks, DL. and we got to sing Happy Birthday to Kim Chambers (iafd). (We would have sang to Tricia too, but the Evil Angel (iafd) folk had a whole host of places to be — you would too if you were one of the hottest studios in pornland! — so their appearance was unfortunately short-lived.)
The only downside to the party: no rice cakes. :-)
