And we've upped it to 15 messages per month for VIPs...might make it 20.

Not really.  Especially since you get 10 free ones as VIP.  If they were always free then too many people would abuse the system and flood every model's inbox.  Quality over quantity I say.  Models want to use the site for business, and not an alternative to facebook.

New site looks OK to me but I wish they went with an HTML 5 interface rather than Flash, still can't use on a mobile device.

My question is, if there's a model that hasn't logged in in months and I want to send them a message or a tip, how can i be sure that they'll actually get it?

Video page needs some work and yes the search and sort aren't working too well...that's something that will be fixed in next week or two hopefully isn't tough to fix

One - on -one recording -- this is a thing we are allowing models to opt in on....if they want, they can offer all users doing 1-on-1 chat who go at least 10 minutes with them the option to buy the video from the chat as a rental for $10 extra...which is pretty cheap if you just spent 100-200 on the session with her


windowsuser9 wrote on Dec 2nd, 2016 at 7:18am:
Hey, Mike.  I've noticed an issue with the video rentals.  I've tried to sort them by length, price, popularity etc. but it doesn't affect the list at all.

Also, I've got another question about videos.  On my dashboard the video section is separated into VOD, Quick Clips, and 1-on-1 rentals.  I haven't messed around with the videos enough on the old site, but can you really rent 1-on-1 videos now?  Like a private session?  How does that work exactly?

We are allowing models to set their own prices on their videos now...instead of us setting them...its a work in progress...expect a big video rentals revamp in a couple months


comp wrote on Dec 2nd, 2016 at 1:20pm:
Eh, those 50 credit prices are still significantly more expensive than the videos on the old site (they may have been $0.50-1 for 20-30 second videos). Even on the new platform, a 30 second video being more expensive than a minute of premium seems pretty questionable.

My account says VIP is active, but when I try to respond to an email it says I need to add money. Is this being fixed?

Actually, none of my old videos i had from the old site have transferred over.

Also, i had 0.55 dollars on the last site. Now i have 0 credits.

I haven't tried adding funds yet. Are you still blocking countries or are we free to add funds whenever we want now?

The more money the site makes, the more money models make, its a partnership.  And if you like using the site, you'll want us to be able to keep attracting talent to the site.  We are absolutely profit-motivated, but a good businessman understands that he needs to deliver good customer service and an excellent product to make money.

The messaging system is long overdue and not charging for it, would render it completely useless.  If you think the prices on messages are too high, I'm open to feedback and how you would change it.  Please post your thoughts.  I've already changed some things based on the feedback I've gotten.

I think the person who is mostly interested doing business is Mike and Herbicepscam-team, who be interesting to know how much percentage of the payment of the different feature are going over to them.

In the next couple days, all prices will be the same or lower than before as far as max prices for chat levels.  Rental videos might be more, but its up to the model to set her own prices.

Happy hour has been successful so far, so we are extending that to 3 hours total time per week per model that each can use it for.  Its optional of course.

windowsuser9 wrote on Dec 3rd, 2016 at 4:08pm:
Even some of the session prices are a little steep compared to other FBB webcam sites.  But I don't think making some of the features like emails or PMs free is the solution, because too many people would abuse it without even spending a dime on sessions.  I can't tell you how many times I've seen other people in free chat asking for flexes or PMs for free, and admit that they're too broke to ever pay for a session.  Why are these people even using the site?

I'm going to test the VIP email error you're talking about.  If you've been charged erroneously for a message, please email us at help@mail.herbicepscam.com and let us know so we can fix the mistake.

And like I said, we are adding PMs back in free for VIPs...the people have spoken on that issue Smiley

VIP shows you are serious.  Without VIP, emails cost $, and that money goes to the model as a tip.


Not exactly. I have VIP and am unable to send a message (reply to a fanclub message from the girl) without adding money to my account. Of course, this incentivizes folks to track them down in a stalkerish way to send a message. But I'm not going to do that. Given that virtually every aspect of the new platform is full of bugs, and many features are incomplete, I am not comfortable adding money to my account at this time. The developers should have waited to release a thoroughly tested, production-ready product, not a beta version. It's the models who will be hurt by this the most -- they're the ones who will be sitting in free chat not making any money because they're using a broken website.

As to the PM issue, the lady was free to choose who to PM. I think it's a poor feature not to allow PMs -- you can ask in PM about a private show without 20 other guys reading your message. Granted, now there won't be 20 guys asking "pm plz," so it'll be less frustrating for the women. But then again, they may get more frustrated having to sit in free chat, listening to all the weird questions, instead of hiding in premium.

On virtually every other webcam site, there's a "whisper" feature. Sometimes the models require you to have money in your account or to be a member of your fan club to use it, but the feature still exists. I suppose you could go back and forth with the email feature instead of PMs, but that's a lot of overhead, and the model is unlikely to look at messages if she's currently broadcasting a video feed.

This is great feedback...yeah, we noticed the dirty thumbnails for videos and are going to work on a solution for that.  Its not what's supposed to happen.

The email notification is a good idea, but might be tough to pull off.  I've made a note of it. 

comp wrote on Dec 3rd, 2016 at 5:01pm:
A couple other thoughts:

(1) It would be good to actually get an email notification (real email, not hbc email) when a model sends you a message.

(2) Have some filters on "top clips." Under best selling videos right now, the top clip is called "JS Peeing" with a nude thumbnail. Some people have weird fetishes and I respect that, but that's going to creep a lot of people out (myself included).

Models do need to check a nudity box, so maybe we'll just not display those videos on the main page...or display in a different display.  Or not do a thumbnail from those at all.

comp wrote on Dec 3rd, 2016 at 5:16pm:
Off the top of my head, I'd have the model be required to check if it might be offensive or weird in some way (pee/poop/stepping on toys/dildos/nude/etc.) and have the clients have an account feature where they choose which options to allow to show up for them. Or you could make a feature where clients can flag certain videos as inappropriate.

Nude ass is probably less of a big deal since half the time they're wearing a thong which is really no different anyway.

Mobile version is hopefully about 6 months down the road give or tak...but we are planning to do one.

Can't guarantee model will read your message but if she doesn't after two weeks, you get refunded the charge for sending.

Very few of the videos have migrated over yet...its on the list, but its not at the top just yet.

Email us to verify account balances.  There are some cases of account balances not migrating.  I'm giving anybody that happened to a free bonus.  I have all the old records, so can check for you.

Country blocks on transactions should be loosened with our new billing software, so give it a try.

"Connecting to the server..." ISSUE when logging into free chat room.  A few seconds after entering the chat room the screen greys out and the aforementioned text appears with an accompanying spinning Throbber symbol.  I have waited for nearly a minute and no connection allowing me to fully enter the chat room is established (on the old system this only always took a few seconds and one was in).  Angry 

All the while I can still see the video feed and hear sound but can't see nor enter any text in the message box or click on anything.   Undecided 

Happens both with firefox and safari.  Any reasons for this or solutions to the problem!!!!!!!!!  Roll Eyes

Just throwing this out there.  I don't know how many of you where around with HBCam first started, or when they changed to the most recent system. I can tell you this, there will be bugs like Mike said, and just be patient with the transition. 

It will take time, but all the bugs will work out.  I have never seen Mike or his team fall short on things in regards to the cam system.......as far as posting videos and photo shoots to the herbiceps, well sometimes things get lost and posted as "archieve" shoots in the future.

In other words, give it a week or two and most things will be worked out, and then in a few months you will forget a transition even happened.
