Hello, and sorry for my english (I'm french)
I wanted to talk about Myuglycam (I mean, MyFreeCams of course lol). I know this camsite is very popular in America but as a Frenchman, i never understood why. The design is horrible, here in France it is not used much. It looks like a 1995 website! lol :D
Why such a success in America? Maybe because it's the first to arrive on the market?

First separate what's popular vs what's profitable. If you want popular then Chaturbate probably is king because it's more well know to millennial than most other sites however the millennial demo group doesn't have money like the Boomers or even the GenX so take that for what it's worth. While some models do want popularity, having 10k viewers that don't tip isn't getting them places unless they're planning to move to mainstream porn.

But I think you might know the answer to your basic question already. Why is Xlove so popular is France for instance? Because it caters to the french audience and the models usually know how to communicate in French however it's also a poor designed site but I'm sure most French members are willing to look past that like MFC do with their favorite site.

Because it has a lot of fantastic models on it, and over the years, the site's design has remained simple and the same so people have an easy time navigating it and finding the fun rooms they are looking for.

Yes calling something ugly and outdated is kind of rude.

You’re sorry if you’re rude? After calling mfc ugly twice and saying the design is horrible? Surely you can understand that’s rude even with an English barrier...

I like the way mfc looks. It’s easier to use than other sites I’ve tried. It’s straight to the point in my opinion.
But with every camsite that is successful, what I believe keeps it successful are the people. The models streaming and the people who come back to see them everyday.

Out of curiosity, what is your favorite camsite?

I dated a French man for just over two years (Canadian French) but he forever changed my sense of humor. Him, his roommate and his cousin would laugh over the most awful things and I would just sit there like "ruddddeeeee" at first.

Then I met his family and some friends while in Quebec and realized they were all like that.

By the end of the relationship I was laughing at the same awful shit. He's one of my best friends now and pretty much everytime he texts me an article or a picture or something I know I'm going to cry laughing and probably feel guilty for laughing.

I really think it could be a cultural thing. I can't speak for every French person obviously but every single one I've ever got to know had a very "rude" sense of humor. Often at their own expense too.

I think my ex is a special case of "rude" but everyone he knew was pretty similar but toned down.

A lot of people find MFC ugly and difficult to use but in my opinion this is good for MFC's culture because most casual freeloaders, people who are just looking for a quick fap and graphic content don't tend to stick around to figure out a site like MFC. So in a way that sets a wall that keeps some of the worst freeloaders and offenders at bay. You need to have patience, good taste, and some sort of capacity to put your boner aside for a minute to register and use MFC. This explains the difference in quality between the average Chaturbate user and the average MFC user.

Maybe it is a cultural thing? I knew a french dude with rude humor too. I just thought of him as an asshole, now I'm thinking he was simply French.
I think so. I studied French in high school and the common prejudice was that the French are rude. MyFreeCams isn't the most beautiful design, but it's simple and effective.

Racist reply? I hope that was me or tokengesture they are referring to so I can laugh.

(spoiler alert, "French" isn't a race.)
Yeah, I didn't know races owned languages... language is cultural and regional if anything. It seems to me we are understanding and accepting different cultural behavior. I thought the French man I knew's humor made him a rude asshole, now I understand there are untranslated humorous alliteration and cultural differences. Now I see him in a more positive light. So you might want to retrieve your race attack card OP.

I agree that MFC does not look good. Thankfully I found MFC through ACF and wanted to check out what it was all about otherwise I would never have created an account on the site. What i like about MFC is that to me it feels more social and less porny than other camsites. If you find a good room on MFC and become a regular you will feel like Norm in Cheers when you enter the room. Hopefully MFC will update what the site looks like sometime in the future in such a way that it retains the old members and brings in new ones.

MFC looking outdated/cheese is part of their game plan. Makes it look less calculated. Makes it look less like a money making machine. Most people acknowledge that it is the place for girls who fit the beauty ideals easiest to land. Being surrounded by an "ugly" background keeps everything approachable.

I feel like the only person who’s never really thought mfc looked that bad... lol.
It’s very straight forward and easy to use and navigate. It’s layout is similar to a newspaper and every time they add new features it doesn’t change the basic functionality of the site and navigation.
As we’ve seen with Manyvids this week, people don’t really like change and many mfc members are of an older demographic.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. (Except the video streaming flash stuff which they ARE working on)
Traffic per room is lower than it was 7 years ago but competition not only with new sites but also more models has grown a TON, and despite this models overall are earning more. What it takes to get into the ranks has tripled and just to be featured on the profiles homepage in the admin you now have to have a camscore over 9,000!

People say mfc is dying but the data just doesn’t support that theory at all, to the contrary. More models are able to be above average successful now than ever before.

I've been seeing MFC ads all over one of the torrent sites. They don't make them look terrible. It's gotta be driving traffic that way.

You really want traffic from a site where most people are there for stolen content?

I know most camgirls are hardcore against it, but I'm not. I torrent stuff, and I buy stuff. I think the majority of people do. The percentage of spenders is probably at least what it is on MFC. People who torrent are people who use the internet for entertainment. Seems silly to pretend none of them will drop money.

I've dealt with a couple of local web developers who have done amazing and beautiful web sites that three to five years later still have annoying bugs. They're not planning on fixing them because they only happen every once in a while. I guess that's why I never became a web developer.

I don't think MFC is dying, but the way the site looks doesn't reflect what a great place it is. MFC is doing good but I think that it could do better. 91% of new models quit within 6 months of joining and I think that number could be lower if there was more traffic per room.

Most models on CB also quit on their first 6 months and traffic is massive
