I restrict PM's on MFC to friends only. I can bookmark as many models as I want and they can't PM me.
When I am in a models room adding/removing that model from/to bookmarks or friends takes literally one click (on the desktop site, I wouldn't know about the mobile site).
MFC also has a history of recently visited rooms (you do have to stay in for at least a while) even if you did not tip.

Just when I thought I was safe from the private messages on MFC, today I get an MFC Mail from a model that says, verbatim:
"I want to be with you today. I need you. I love you."

Only thing I am wondering at this point is how many hundreds of other viewers got that same message from her studio marketing guy. lol

I actually liked that model and we had some pretty honest conversations. So I want to believe it was her studio sending the message, not her.

[signs off] Alright guys, see you all tomorrow, 6PM!
[Twitter next day 6:30] Hey guys, running a little behind, be there in a bit!
[Twitter next day 7:00] We decided to make one more stop, but I'll be online!
[Twitter next day 8:30] OMG where is everyone? It's so dead in here!

Emergencies happen, can't avoid it, completely understandable. But when it becomes the norm???? If your life is that hectic clearly there's nothing wrong with that. But if that's the case then it shouldn't come as a surprise when you log on and maybe there's nobody in the room, or it stays slow. Nor should it be when the guy you thought was starting to become a regular, found a different store open at the time yours was supposed to be open and starting doing business there instead. Heck maybe even a few existing regulars did the same you know? I've read countless blogs and articles about the importance of having a regular schedule. I agree with that, but I think even more important than a regular schedule, is simply being there when you say you're going to be there. To be clear, this is less about people being busy and missing a few start times by a bit, and more about:

* Consistently not being able to make it on when you say you would.
* And when it DOES happen, putting members 'on blast' on Twitter or Snapchat or whatever for not being there.

I always thought this was the exception not the rule, and maybe it's dumb luck on my part, but recently the last two or three times I've tried to become more of a regular in a room this has happened. Then I get nasty emails/PMs about why I'm online but not stopping in to say hello, I see rants on Twitter about how 'nobody loves me', etc. So there's my 'annoying' contribution :)

Oh man, I'm consistently about 30 mins later than estimated (though that has become the joke and regulars know "Amber time" by now) but I'd NEVER guilt people for not making it to my room like that. Holy shit that's just wrong.

I try my best to give general estimates of time now, at least. "Around 7pm'ish" usually means 7:30 :D.

Punctuality is important. But, I think in certain cases it becomes "The norm" for some people to constantly be late and it's generally acceptable when it's become a trend. What I don't like is exactly what he was saying in terms of guilting people for not being there. At which point, the model needs to look in the mirror.

In all honesty, I just look for the SnapChat or Twitter “Call to Arms” from Amber before I log on...usually...usually...

Will not lie and say I haven’t logged on right at 7PST before though. (Please don’t take this as me griping about it Amber, just stating that this is something that I have done/do).

I haven’t set an exact time for when I’m online but my regulars generally show up. It’s always between 8 and 9 but I know consistency is important. I suffer from LST (Latina Standard Time) so I’m always late, haha. I think this is an important point though, in order to always have people to hang out with, I should be on generally at the same time every time I cam.

There's enough groups who joke about running on their own schedule and being slow, that I think it's really just a human thing and not a certain group thing. That's not going to stop me from joking that my D&D group runs on Gay Time, though.

I think it’s a fun way to justify my lateness. I’m also a stoner so it’s a double whammy for me. My friends always get a kick out of it when I say I’ll be somewhere at a certain time but I’m on LST. Some of them have chosen to tell me an earlier time so I show up on time

I may be in the minority of members, but it means far more to me that my friends are just on when they say they're going to be on (or close to it anyway). Or more than that even, is just letting me know when they won't. Sometimes the latter isn't possible for extenuating reasons, but the QUICKEST way to get me to stop coming around is to "leave me hanging" one too many times. You're right, the consistency helps, but just common courtesy goes a long ways. There are times I will absolutely go out of my way to make time to hang out with a friend, and nothing sucks more than doing so and having a 'no show' happen without so much as a word. ;)

This is a really good way to look at it. The members in my room are my friends and I should hang out with them when I say I will. This is a reflection of my personal life as well. I'm a flake! Mostly due to intense anxiety. Camming is helping to be a little more consistent and being aware of time. I hope this will translate into my personal life soon too.

Ohhhh I can't believe I never thought of this before. I think the majority of guys enjoy/like this but I absolutely hate it.


Model's who baby talk to you. That annoying voice you ladies sometimes put on. I admit some of you do it fantastic and it's a right balance between "innocent", "baby talk/voice" and "playing 'blonde'"... there is one or 2 models who are popular (one being an actual pornstar) who come to mind and they always have 500+ in their room, so clearly guys love this kind of voice/talk...I am not saying you ladies use baby talk terminology, but just the voice itself. For lack of a better expression it gets on my tits and anoys me I genuinely don't "get" what guys like or find sexual about it.

Ok, I'll say it - CONTENT DELIVERY. MFC Share has been a great thing IMO when it comes to this. I'm talking about custom videos or videos that aren't on share. I understand being busy. I have never had what I consider to be unrealistic expectations for delivery. I've always figured a few days for existing content, or a couple weeks on a custom (for basic stuff). But I ALWAYS confirm that timing, always. If it's going to take longer that's honestly fine, just so long as I have an idea of when to expect it.

So what's the gripe? Never getting the stuff! I don't mind sending a reminder. I know it's easy to miss one sometimes. I also understand that MFC mail can get out of hand (Hint: if you can't manage it, stop telling me to use it to remind you lol). 90% of the girls I support deliver usually faster than they say they will. But those other 10% irritate me to no end. I'm on week 6 waiting for one custom that I was told would take a week or two (yes I've politely reminded as requested). I can't tell you how many Snapchats I gave up on reminding people about. This is a business, so stop asking or relying on the customer to stop back into your store 3-4 times to remind you they bought something! To those of you who do such an amazing job with prompt deliveries I truly thank you, and I take my hat off to you. I know it's not easy!

Not sure where to put this, but I wish there was a way to disable auto-tweets from MFC Share when a model is online. You can walk away from Twitter for 1 minute and get 50 tweets all because someone spammed an MFC Share goal while a model is in her room.

Is there a frequency setting somewhere that can be tweaked on the model's side?

Models have the ability to disable these when they're online. Wasn't there originally but it's an option now. A friend of mine just found it recently. I thought she said she could also do something with the frequency but I don't remember what it was. Whatever it was it made a huge difference. Between the two of these settings she has a nice balance of reminding and rewarding others, but it's not annoying.

I also agree. I have no issue seeing these but I've had to unfollow a couple because it was non-stop and was literally 80% of their twitter feed.

Are you referring to Tweets that are tagged? If there is a tag, you can filter those out. Go to Twitter settings and look for "Muted Words". My muted words are #ManyVids #MFCtip and #MVSales. So far that works like a charm to get rid of all that spam.

Occasionally you get the model who does not tag her promotions, and usually I ask her to start adding the tag and she does it. If she does not, then I have no choice but to Unfollow her.

you can still mute words. they don't have to be a hashtag.

also majority of cammodels use their twitter for promotion. it's their twitter, and they can run it how they seem fit. i personally don't use hashtags anymore, because i notice i get more interaction with posts w/o them. i find it very rude you do this.
 
Literally the entire purpose of most cam models Twitter is promotion and those auto tweets legitimately help increase sales (at least for me). You should clearly know that going in if you have followed any models before.

Unfollowing a model because she won't change her auto tweet for you because it brothers you to see her selling things? Or what's the issue there? I just don't get it and agree with audri that it's pretty rude.

I think everyone that is following a model knows that there is going to be plugs, advertisements, etc associated with the accounts. I think the issue for some especially if they don't follow all kinds of people that they might get overwhelmed in their feed. I can also see where if a person is trying to scroll through a particular model's feed to say see if the model is online, but her I'm online tweet is hidden in between 20 sales/promotional tweets they might miss something. I think if a member wants to actually see the initial advertisement, but maybe miss all the actual sales tweets. Maybe look into muting the phrase "thank you for tipping" that seems to be universal for most of the models I just ran through my feed and looked at.

I personally follow too many things so my feed is always cluttered. So I never really worry about all the advertising.

I get the sales aspect. But, in some ways, I agree that the sheer number of tweets gets annoying to some degree. For example, following two top MFC models, I had well over 100 auto tweets from them in less than an hour. Yes, it's promotion but like Yavin mentioned, it'd be nice to be able to turn the frequency down.

You can love a model but still not like her advertising. In the same way that each person can choose to receive or not receive e-mail promotions from a website they use, people should have a way to exercise a preference over seeing promotional tweets.

If there is no hashtag to identify the specific type of advertising, then which keyword am I supposed to filter out? Sometimes there is not a specific word to filter on, and choosing a too-generic filter then means you lose more valuable content. The use of a standardized hashtag to identify a particular type of promotion works great. People can filter it if they like, or they can receive those promotions if they like. No harm and no foul either way.

Out of maybe 20 models I have followed, I think I had a problem with one model. Everyone else is using the standardized hashtags. This issue touches very few models.

Of course advertising works. I would encourage every model to advertise often and well. Most models I follow do advertise often, and I still follow them.

As a test I've added "thank you for tipping" and "just sold a #clip" and "Just sold!" to my muted list and I'm not seeing the auto sales on my main feed. And I literally had a "just sold a #clip" in my feed before I added to the mute and then it disappeared.

I think it’s important to consider where the line between marketing and spamming is, even if it’s different for everyone. Rude or not, if members are muting advertisements because they’re too plentiful, I think it’s useful to consider how effective they are. A lot of models find auto-tweets really increase their sales but this is a good reminder that there can be an overkill point. I’m not a typical member but I will mute/unfollow artists or creators who post too much, even if I like then & their work. I don’t like seeing my timeline dominated by one person, especially if it’s auto-tweets.
