There's only 2 Genders and I don't want to see MFC turning into some sort of Freakshow. Adding male cammers on the site would really upset the whole site dynamics.

If Leo wanted male cammers it would of been done long ago.
I totally get some people are uncomfortable seeing the same sex, or another sex naked.

But you know what. PornHub, the largest porn site on the planet, servers every thing legal. You know what they do? First time you go there, they ask you, what do you want to see? If you click female, that's all you see.

MFC is leaving money on the table. Their leaving clicks on the table. And you know what, chaturbate is more then happy to pick that money and clicks up. And because of it, their now ranked higher, they're getting more traffic, which is starting to turn into more features, better experience, higher quality.

MFC is like playboy. They have a fallowing, they have a brand, it's up to them to stay relevant.
 
Getting rid of camscore, ability to change the rate you charge for privates/group shows, ability to block via zipcodes and not just entire states (I live in a small town and would like to block my zipcode and a couple surrounding zipcodes, but not my entire state.), ability to not allow PM viewers (I have never had a PM viewer chat or tip me-it annoys me that they just sit there and lurk), ability to allow password protected shows in case I'd like to do a cumshow for a handful of guys who tipped, but not cater to a bunch of freeloaders.

Blocking is based off of reverse IP lookup. The challenge is allot of ISP are not accurate about where an IP is. When doing these lookups, your lucky if the IP even shows up in the right state.

ITT: people completely rebuild MFC so it’s a completely different site than MFC.

Only two genders eh?
1980 called. They want your attitude on genders back.

And what exactly is it about allowing all genders makes you feel like it would make MFC a freakshow?

What about having the model be in control whether she is viewable from the lounge or PM views at all? A model can opt-out of the galleries... why not the option to opt-out on lounge views?

Also, give the model the ability to 'purge' her room so that all guests and basics, and any premium who has not tipped since the start of her camming session or if there is a problematic connection or something: within a set time, will be 'kicked' from the room and unable to enter for, say, 10 minutes?

And I think that guests at least should never have the same viewing abilities than basics/ premiums should have. Their view screen should be limited and never be allowed to be made full screen, and their time in a room should be limited.. enough to get an idea about a model, but never long enough to videograb a 3 hour camming session or something like that.. i'd say 15 minutes should be enough ... tops

Also if a premium member hasn’t tipped or been logged on in 5 or more months then there premium status should be revoked as being inactive .
Why? What would that achieve? It has zero value... other than remove one of the founding principles of the site - pay once, premium forever. Start removing it and there's no point for all those $20 purchases. That'd likely be a large drop of revenue for the lower end cam models.

I also agree they definitely need to have ticket shows so paying members in a chat that tip only get the show and for people that don’t tip towards the show the screen would show it black and it would say this model is in a ticket show
It already exists, funnily enough. It's called Group Show...



A lot of these seem to be aimed at the "omg omg freeloader" resolution, but honestly, the site made itself, and brought people to it who then went on to tip you, repeatedly, on that very premise. The whole reason you chose to work on the site is backed by its success, backed by it's model.

As said before a gajillion times, with actual statistics to back it up, the entire "free" model works and works well, with approx 1 in 4 basics turning premium. Even if that's just a single $20 premium, that's a shit ton of cash. People don't turn premium because they want to go into the lounge. People turn premium because they grew to like someone. The lounge offers nothing at all for a freeloader over anon user. Remove the ability for the free members to gradually fall for a ladies personality, turn basic, turn premium, and you'll probably see a sizeable drop in revenue.

People don't rock up to the site and buy premium within 30s. Likewise the lounge isn't about perving for free, as that's exactly what you can do anyway. The entire point of the lounge is to build people into a community, basically get them coming back. If it's not the model interaction, it's the member interaction. What else does the lounge allow? you to randomly see models for 5s - what's that do? Introduce you to new models you'd never have looked at.

It's marketing. It's smart. It's something no-one seems to recognise or think about. Instead you all want to shoot the golden Goose under the pretext "but i git more monies". Unlikely...

So, the thing about basics, I see a lot of the same basic members in my room whenever I get online and they will hang out for a whole lot longer than 15 minutes. It's highly doubtful that someone who has never spent money on a site in months (or possibly years) will all of a sudden start spending and bringing in revenue to the site. It is unfair to members who do spend their money that others who never have get the same viewing privileges.

I think by limiting the amount of time basics, and definitely guests, can be in a room before being kicked would definitely cut back on the amount of capped shows out there as well.

The only upside to not having a viewing limit is that if you're doing a show and it starts to attract more people other people will come in simply because the room count is higher which might bring in more tips.

I highly doubt this will ever actually happen, but it's a nice thought.

I know there is no official thing to this, but, I would like to be able to hide models on a bigger scale than I already do as I would like a more compact view of bookmarked models, friends and models I might have a tip connection with in the future (it might take a while, but sometimes it takes a while for me to get the courage to talk and tip in rooms). I know it sounds mean to want to hide models, but, there are waaaaaayyyyyyyy toooo many models and for a while I would take some time and tried 'hiding' models I knew I would never tip (for whatever reason) and after a while it seemed I reached a limit and I had to go in to 'personal options' and then go to 'hidden models' and then go to 'sort by most recently logged in' and then delete the page of all the models from a few months ago.

I did think it was infinite when I initially started hiding models but some kept popping up. So, I could get the MFC start page down to maybe 100 models after I figured it all out. Haven't done it in a while after getting it down to 100 and right now it it is at 629 models online with me hiding 6,237 models. I don't know, I guess some models that might not be at the top of the page interest me as a tipper.

I think finding models you might connect with is hard, especially after they lose the 'new' tag which I never really have the foresight to keep up with. One of my favorites I found ended up in the lower end of the board after not really knowing the site and i was lucky to find her.

Also, hiding them is tough as you have to point and click a couple of times with the mouse (hit the 'menu' and then click the 'hide model'. That can take some time as there are so many models. I think most guys don't even think about it and just view the top of the page. It would be nice if hiding models was easier (as bad as it sounds)...maybe like a hover over a avatar and hit a keyword?

Again, I sound really horrible and I know that, but, dammmmmmnnnnnn there are so many models on MFC.

Have you used this at times you only want to see bookmarked models? Much faster than "hiding" ones you don't want to see:

I think a lot of the wishes here would be detrimental to MFC's wallet. The only one I can think of now that they have a daily pay option, is including M to F trans as performers even if they did it quietly and on a case by case basis. I really love that MFC is women only. I think it makes it feel comfortable, cute and less hardcore. But, I don't think allowing actual M to F trans women would damage that... for me anyway. I like the password show thing too, but I think allowing it might make MFC less alluring to new members. Maybe allowing girls to throw 1 or 2 a month as a special incentive would be sweet.

Thanks Amber! No i never noticed that, but the problem with that might be not being able to see models I might never have seen before: maybe lower rank and I haven't scrolled down enough, maybe a model that changes time of work and I have never seen before and it makes it hard to view newer models. I'm an odd duck (I just like to have less of mfc when I log in and I wish I noticed a fav of mine when she was newer--some models sink so fast). Just a wish for MFC to do something with their 'hide model' list.

Things I would like as a member:

A very private porn related website that doesnt store my password in plain text and that follows even the most basic security guidelines, think about it, one day MFC *will* be hacked and all member and model details will be in the public domain, their approach to security is utterly irresponsible and amateur. I have doubts over using the site as a member, I would never, ever in a million years be a model on it. (ok assuming I were female and hot etc.)

A user interface that was not designed in 1997, by an amateur, that still mostly relies on bad things like flash and cannot reliably stream decent resolutions. Frankly i am sick of it, it should have been retired 10 years or more ago. Hmm I want to change a setting, should I look under "My account" or "Personal Options" or maybe somewhere else. Terrible UI, utterly terrible.

I want to hide from models, sorry but its true, dont want tot have a "hey babe" and "hello darling" or even "hey how you doing" from everyone I ever did a group show with when i log in. I want to decide who can see me online, more than happy that if I am invisible to a model I cant go to her room but I want the ability to be private.

A shared token pool between all accounts

An end to that stupid and offensive tip sound (it's probably the worst around), there has to be a way I dont have to listen to John "Fifty Tokens" Doe do a 1 token tip wall for 10 minutes, not sure how that could work technically but I want it!

Things I think would be good in general:
The ability for models to set their own rates for privates and groups, for some new models the current rates are way too high and for others they can be too low or too inflexible (thinking of popular models who will only keep a group running if more than x people are in it etc)

Kill guests altogether. if you cant be arsed to put in an email address you dont get to freebie titties ok?? (makes them bannable and slightly more accountable).

Soften (in a big way) the transition between new model and being 57 pages down the day after new status expires. MFC is so static, same old same old top models because the system is set up to favour them.

Probably get rid of camscore entirely and order on viewers, not sure about this one but its sad that MFC is sort of a giant repeat of the same models being at the top of the pile year on year, yes they got there because they were good/successful but the system as it currently stands keeps them there and precludes changes.

Kill the idea of "lounges", they are just places where assholes congregate to slap each other on the back for behaving like the worst Hollywood imaginings of frat boys. Sickening actually as an adult.

Rant over :)

YES! I hate the tip noise. My god I hate it. Lately I almost try to tip 'silent' until the model tells me that they would like the noise for some reason.
 
@Moffle I wish there was a 'love' button for your post. Especially this part...

So...freakin...annoying. Lol. And then people encouraging that foolishness by posting a stream of :applause emotes...when all he really did was noisily put $2.50 in the model's pocket. Haha.

A long time ago, I remember silencing the tip sound completely. I don't do that anymore though, because I do like having some sort of sound when I receive a tip. I just wish it wasn't that annoying sound. Too bad it couldn't be the Ka-Ching!-like sound from AdultWork or Cams.

Whaattt?! That tip noise makes my heart sing, and I haven't even cammed on MFC in forever. It's up there with the laughter of babies for me. :giggle: Sidenote: Can members not hide from models? That one does seem like something that could be helpful if implemented.

If you are getting the same basics every time you cam why don't you just ban them?

They can just watch as a guest, but no, if they log in on their member account there is no way for other people who have friend-ed them can be blocked from seeing them online.

Yes, allow us members to hide ourselves please... Pretty annoying when we are in a room and get a PM from another model. Especially when I am in a group or private.

I highly doubt this will ever actually happen, but it's a nice thought.
Admittedly it took me about 2 days to go from guest to basic; that was so I could know "who was online" when loading.

It took me 3 months to go from basic to premium. 3 months. I watched the model for perhaps an hour or two a night she was on, and the reason I went premium is simply to be able to speak and say "Thank you" in my tip. I didn't plan on spending more money...

Needless to say my main account had over 20k reward points before i deleted it 3 months ago, and my backup accounts (yes, I have at least 4 - and no - they're not for the usual assumed reasons) have between 2-9k reward points.

If I was kicked out of rooms as basic/guests, the entire "I like her enough to spend money on something I would never have dreamed spending money upon" would never have happened. It took 3 months not because I didn't want to get involved, but because I had massive prejudice against porn sites having my information, transaction records, bank statements showing up - and yes - spending money on something that's otherwise "free".

To be perfectly clear, there's no way on earth I would have spent money on the site any earlier. Blocking, auto kick outs would have ensure I never bothered because it creates a barrier that does not give me time to lower my reservations sufficiently to buy in. Now I'd wager that's the same for plenty.

The downside of deleting my account is that it appears Crazysysy has blocked the country I live in. Since I was in her friends list for the past 7 years (despite not visiting her room more than a few times in the last 5 years) I never realised she had! Then again, as lovely as she is, the vibe of her room is way different to how it was "back in the day" and I barely visited in the past 6 years anyway.

Why put all this down? People's ideas are short sighted. You only see endpoint gain... for you. The reality people like I would never have stayed on the site, therefore never have spent the... (looking back on it) retarded amounts of money just to make a pretty girl smile :D

Wait, what am i saying? Fuck it, make it you can't see anything until you spend some money. Only then can you see the models and interact, however, you have to pay per minute to simply sit in the room to chat (i.e. have tipped within the last x minutes of an amount greater than y). So fewer people would then have been lured into this evil extraction of money from vulnerable men based on faux fantasy garbage!

(incase you don't realise, I am taking the micky on that last paragraph :p ).
(blocking tip sound is likely not possible simply because it's the models side playing of the sound that you hear... and that's from her microphone picking up the noise. Le d'oh - unless models don't want an audio notification of a tip - but they'd likely miss it).

That seems reasonable. Most of what members have wanted changed here are things that MFC does that shows they respect models. Most of what models have wanted here would go against the capitalism that keeps MFC in the money. :giggle:

You can set your PM options to only receive messages from people on your friends list. I've had to do this with my perv account because of models trying to snipe members in another model's room.

I went to a camgirl excursion where one model had the MFC tip sound as her text ringtone; watching everyone perk up whenever she got a text was hilarious. I fucking loooooove the MFC tip noise. It’s iconic!

Yup, I've told MFC members about the PM options, or that they can just let the model know they're not interested. But I guess some of these guys are afraid that it's considered "being mean" to the model. Lol. It's not mean at all. Those models got some nerve PMing for that reason. They should be told to fuck off...lol.

I don't like the way group shows are run and have rarely had success with them. Firstly they're way too cheap at 10 tokens per minute, and there is no way to set a minimum spend or time spent in the room, so lots of people will duck in and out until they see "the good stuff", I find this really awkward as a model watching these few people duck in and out while you're trying to put on a great show, and then if you get too many people leaving you're sat there doing a show for less tokens than I need per minute to maintain my camscore.
To change this I would suggest:
a) raising the price for group shows to the same as voyeur. i.e. 20 tokens per minute.
b) Allowing people to queue for group show, but making it so that the model chooses when the group happens, so she can draw excitement and attention with a larger group before the show starts, rather than the current system where you have to reject or enter a group show as soon as you get to 3 people.
c) some kind of commitment aspect to group, like a minimum spend.

The other option I would love, which has been suggested, is being able to either run a countdown, or instead have a set "buy in" amount for a group show to happen, so you run the "countdown", which might be say 20 people to tip 100 tokens to get into the show, or just however many people want to tip in until x time runs out, the model would establish how long the show would be and what would happen, they would buy in, and when the show starts each member would be alerted and able to join the group for the duration of the show, and those who want to enter the show once it has started will be able to tip to get entry.
I guess similar to a group show, except it has more commitment from the member and the model can start the show feeling happy and confident that she has made what she needs, and then can relax and enjoy the group environment in a similar way that you might with a cumshow, just no freeloaders and less chance of being capped. It would not suit the members who do like to duck in and out of group shows, but it would make me feel a lot more confident and happy performing this type of show. I also wonder if the sorts of members who do tend to tip for cumshows would like this sort of show, as I find very few member friends like group shows. A feature I would also love with this type of model would be an option to allow friends into my shows for free, possibly a premium friendslist option, so those days they don't have the tokens, regulars can still remain with their favourite model.

I really do think that a system like this or similar would be a good move for MFC, models have been asking for it for years, and the group system is really not great. There is a reason that cumshow countdowns became a thing, and I doubt it was because models wanted to perform free shows for non tipping members. Countdowns work because they are fun to do, they give plenty of time to relax and engage, and you have the money up front before you actually perform the show. While I think it is great that MFC has embraced the cumshows and ceased to "ban" them, I feel like there could be a feature for the girls who have success with the cumshow countdown model, but don't want to perform for a huge group of people who have never and will never tip and will simply record and spread it over the internet.
I'd even be happy with a system where the minimum "buy in" were 50 tokens (or an amount the model can set), and the rest were like a regular countdown, but to see the show you would have to tip 50 tokens minimum.

I don't like the idea of being able to set individual prices for private shows though, I don't think it is healthy to say that one model is worth more than another, and I think all it does is encourages desperate models to set rock bottom prices, which ends up devaluing the product for everyone. This has already happened with skype shows and videos. I also don't fancy having people being rude about my prices and trying to barter me down, or having people think that one girl is less because of her prices, or another girl is up her own arse for having high prices.

Setting aside your use of the word 'Freakshow', I generally agree with this. I would hate it if MFC abandoned the female only thing.

Anyone can sign up and freeload, or conversely, not sign up and just freeload anonymously. The issue here is that becoming a basic does absolutely nothing for a specific model, nor does becoming a premium member. I've always said that models who convert basics into paying members should reap some kind of reward for their efforts beyond what tips they might earn.

I would love to see a box added to the payment processing page that would allow a member to designate which model it was that caused them to buy their first, or current amount of tokens. Instead of camscore rewards only, the rewards could be shifted to reward those models who have a bigger impact on converting basics into premiums, or reflecting why someone is buying their current allotment of tokens. Model "A" causes "X" number of basics to become premiums, or causes a premium to buy -more- tokens, she should be given some kind of reward for doing so.

Other things that could be changed that would help a model:

-Get rid of the lounges. Even though I can join the L10K, I see nothing but toxic behavior in the lounges where often times the topics deal with seeing how quickly someone can be banned from a models room.
-Get rid of camscore.
