Hi, itís gone, just like that. Mike gave about 2 hours notice, then shut it down. I was a moderator there but got no advance notice; none of us did.

That's odd. I usually only visited their model & actresses board, and noticed activity has lessened over the years, but didn't know it had become an albatross.

You mean the celebs board? Yeah, both good content and participation have lessened through the years. But I wouldnít exactly say albatross is the right word. Mike has totally revamped the website, emphasizing webcam and VOD content over the traditional clips that the member site provided. For that model, he didnít feel that a message board was necessary. I donít agree; I think heís seriously crimped his access to feedback. But that call is above my pay grade (free ).

Itís too bad you didnít visit the Female Athletes Board more. Youíre an astute MMA analyst.

I used to visit it regularly and just choose the "most recent 25 posts" option. In recent months, over half of those 25 posts were always subscribers complaining about lack of updates, delays on the new site, etc. He probably got tired of the criticism. (I wasn't a HerBiceps subscriber, so not commenting on whether the criticism was warranted or not.)

Yeah, Mike did a really shitty job communicating with members for the past year. It was honestly super scummy of him to shut the boards on that short of notice.

Also, 99% of the material from the old herbiceps isn't up on the new site, and there's no hint as to when it will be, so if you were a paying member, you basically had no warning to download any favorite clips or pics before the site shut. I doubt all those old archives will ever go up either, because they were housed on a completely different server, he switched webhosts for the new site, which means they'd all have to be manually re-uploaded and labeled, and that could take months or years.

I really lost of ton of respect for him over it. He promised a lot a delivered not very much so far.

Yes, he did promise that heíd migrate all that old content, didnít he? My impression is that he was just going to preserve the old site as an archive site. But I guess not, and so far, his team has proven to be anything but tech savvy.

Yeah he did. In fact, if memory serves, the big promises made about Herbiceps+ were that you'd have access to all the old content plus great new stuff. That the photo and video quality would be improved (Which it isn't. In fact the photo quality may actually be slightly worse on the new site from the galleries I've checked out), and that it would be much easier to navigate (which also isn't the case as you can't even organize the models by name).

I honestly can't figure out what the big deal about was, as it basically seems to be the same site design as Herbicepscam. I'm kind of confused as to why he didn't just add more content to Herbicepscam rather than spending so much time on a new site.

That's a shame. I haven't visited there for possibly over a year, but seem to recall they had a good Britney Spears thread going. lol.
