Updates and non-updates

First things first: episode 173 is up. I think this one is cute. Hardcore fans, there'll be more for you in the near future.

Now, about the membership site. The tl;dr version: I'm going to make sure everything's right. That's a promise. If you want to know how and don't care about any of the backstory, skip to the end.

A brief primer on lostbetsgames.com: it's not my site and I don't run it or control it. Originally, there was only the Clips4Sale clip store, which I did and do run. I was contacted by the guys who went on to start lostbetsgames.com, with a proposal to sell some of my older clips on a monthly membership basis. After much hesitation and pondering, I agreed, and lostbetsgames.com was born.

One of the reasons I was hesitant to allow it was that they'd be using my marks and my brand, and thus my reputation would to some extent be in their hands. I've always tried to provide excellent customer service and I feel like I've built up a reservoir of good will, and now I feel like it's being depleted because they've dropped the ball. I'm pretty pissed off about that, actually. (Part of the problem is that the original operator of lostbetsgames.com sold out to a new guy, who's proving difficult to get in touch with.)

So, what am I going to do about it? Well, I'm going to try to get them to get their shit together, starting off by publishing the updates they've missed, plus a bonus update for each one they missed. If that doesn't work, I'll yank their links and tell them to shut down. Then I'll publish the updates that the subscribers missed (and the bonus updates) myself, for free.

I'm very sorry to everyone who feels ripped off by lostbetsgames.com. Part of the problem is that this occurred during a time when I've been heavily occupied with other things (which is also why responses to emails and blog comments are delayed) so I wasn't able to give it my full attention until now. Sorry about this, and I'll do my best to make it up to you.

Hi Red,

Thanks from everyone I'm sure for the update about the membership site. I never bothered signing up for it since I've heard the ill will, and instead have been spending like 40 bucks a week on 2 clips every 3 or 4 days. Yikes.

Will my wallet be able to take it? You tell me, will Taylor be in anymore videos anytime soon? -Mike

4 hours, 42 minutes to download 757 meg! I appreciate the high quality but it's hard to be impulsive when you are timing whether your gf can drive across state and back before you can sneak a private session in. :)

I would rather spend 40 bucks and get good value at c4s than bad money on a site that does not update. Been there done that on other sites not on lostbetsgames.com. I learnt my lesson early. Hope you go the next step and open your own site. Jack.

Yeah Red, you have quite a fanbase going on. I can't think of any other porn that more closely resembles what goes on in my head when I'm daydreaming during mediocre sex. :D

Hey Red,

Great post from u on the website. Never bothered to be a member as I already had all the ones I wanted.

Keep up the good work.

Any news on Cory?

Bonus updates help those who are still members. I don't know that there's a way to make things right with those of us who canceled because of being tired of paying for missed updates, though.

You have, from time to time, talked about items from the past that you have forgotten. I think, for instance of Sudden Death with Ashley and Kala and your recent comments about last week’s offering with Tatiana, Asia, etc. This has me wondering if you have enough unused material to make some “Outtakes” clips, using sections from the cutting room floor and parts of other recordings that never went into publication. Did you, for instance, record anything other than the one episode with Kris and Yola or have you anything else with Sash and Vivian? Perhaps there are some sections that were too revealing in the early days but which you feel you could publish now or recordings where the whole thing was not up to scratch but contained some good parts? If there are, why not use them and avoid the trouble (and expense) of additional recording sessions.

I’m sure I am not alone in wanting to see more of some of the girls who have graced your site over the years. I’d enjoy seeing an episode made up of a selection of short pieces of different girls.

Hi Red,

Just a quick e-mail to tell you that I am a member of the website, and I find it really really good (despite all comments here).

I saw your Lost Bets initiative from the first time you posted a clip. I really wanted to buy them in the clip store, but I thought they were too expensive.
The website with membership is really good value for money. I definitely think this will attract you new clients.

Keeep on the good work. I really love your job.

Hi Red,

As a long time subscriber to your work I am was excited to see the website option which allowed me to catch up on some old content I had missed. Like everyone else I am excited to see you planning on holding the proprietors of this site to thier word. That being said, August 18 has come and nearly gone and the Coming August 18 logo remains.

And hopefully today's video isn't a repeat like last weeks.

Hi Red,

I sent you an email regarding a clip. Did you get it?

Heh the membership site is really good for me, buying each clip alone isn`t affordable for all ;(

Hey Red-
I've always felt that your site is different from most of the other sites out there, it has much more of a personal touch. If some delays are the price of that, so be it. The reservoir isn't empty yet. That being said, your being a good guy only goes so far in helping you sell clips. I'd actually be willing to spend a lot more money than the tiny amount I do now if I knew I was going to get value.

Good Luck

I am a member of the paysite. Is there anyway to increase the number of videos in its archive (like adding older ones). It's lacking a lot of the more sexual ones.

I'm glad there is a lostbetsgames.com--I probably wouldn't have found your material (which is great) otherwise, and I really don't care for the c4s model--I think it's overpriced. Given that you don't run the site, you might not be the one to ask, but is there any rhyme or reason as to which clips are supposed to go on the site when?

Keep up the amazing work
