Author Topic: Email me first before booking on AdultWork........  (Read 6553 times)

There's an increasing number of ladies on AW who include comments on their profile along the lines of......'please, email me first to check my availability before placing a booking'.

I mean, what's all that about?

I think the AW booking system is ideal, as you can add a few comments along with your request. The SP can respond as she likes, and you get notice if the meeting request has been accepted via the AW system. Seems straightforward enough, yet more often than not I'm asked to circumnavigate that system by emailing directly.

I must be missing something.

Maybe it's to weed out timewasters, I wouldn't book anyone without checking they did what I wanted anyway so a phone call or mail would be made, then a booking request so I could leave feedback anyway.

I also expect a reply to a confirmation email before I accept a bid on a RB as well.

It's a no Brainer, no point putting in a booking if he wg can't see you! Email/call/text 1st and when confirmed put in a booking

That's what I do

How do you know she is free on the date and time you requested? How do you know she does the services you require? Is it that big a deal if you are writing comments in the booking request to place it in an email instead?

The reason most ask for an introductory email is to be sure they can offer what you are looking for and you are both clear on what is required to ensure the booking runs smoothly. I personally don't accept blind bookings and even after emails I will book it in my diary but won't confirm it on AW till I have spoken to the guy.

I think in an ideal world where everyone in honest and up front the AW booking system is superb!
Unfortunately we don't live in an ideal world and I can understand a WG wanting to 'vet' a punter before he leaves a booking...

The biggest problem I've seen recently is where punters have obviously left a booking request without contacting the WG first then for whatever reason the WG hasn't contacted the punter and ultimately a neg feedback has been left!!
This does seem an unfair practise to me!

100% of the men who place a "blind" booking for me without any previous contact have been timewasters. It's been booking requests for 2am, fingering in a cinema, booking start time 30 minutes after they placed the booking, bookings placed at 3am for a 7am start, lorry drivers wanting to take me to a layby, requests for me to supply various women, incalls (when I'm not available for incalls and the option isn't displayed), outcalls to the other end of the country that same day, a weekend to attend a swinging party, and all kinds of random fantasy prices offered, from £10 for "just a bj hun dat all i need" to £10,000 to fly me out to Dubai for his discerning boss.

So a quick message to see if I'm free/can fulfil your request helps you to find and get what you're looking for, and takes no longer than typing it into the booking form.

I notice, out of ther 5 replies so far 2 are from WG's
moaning about people booking for silly times of the day/night

well if you were not so lazy you could stop that by filling in your availability diary, then the sytem would stop making bookings for times you do not work

IMO it gives the punter an opportunity to leave feedback, cos sometimes the WG does not have the decency to reply to a booking request or to respond to emails

Nope, doesn't work. My diary has been filled in from day 1, it's got my *standard* work hours on it, but 1) booking requests for hours outside this still come through, and 2) doesn't stop the activity requests (such as fingering in cinemas and truck stops in laybys).

I always politely reply to the request saying that I can't make that time (or sorry to have missed the time requested due to short notice etc) and would they like another time/date? or I'm sorry I don't offer that service would you still like to see me?, and never hear a peep out of them again. Hence why I say they're 100% timewasters.

having never used the booking system in advance of a punt, I can't see a point to it myself. Assuming it's as reliable as the rest of the AW communication system then there's no way I'd be using it as the only way to arrange something anyway!

Surely it's just common courtesy to get in touch and agree a mutually convenient time first, isn't that what you do with anything else you're booking with anyone?

I also can't see how the booking system can be expected to work unless it's the only booking method used, if bookings are also made through text/phone then it immediately becomes useless unless it can be constantly updated from wherever they happen to be at the time.

In my opinion a punter should always contact a WG first if only to introduce himself!

I believe leaving a booking request without doing this is not only bad manors but shows disrespect for the WG herself even if she has filled in her availability diary to stop punters booking outside of her working ours...

If we were placing a booking to visit some event then no contact is necessary to the people organising the event.
However, WG's are people and should be treated as such......

Cheers for the advice but I  worked the same way for years and most people seem to grasp the concept behind it so will continue to do so. You have actually highlighted why we don't accept blind bookings to avoid people just leaving negative feedback that really means nothing so is pointless. May I suggest that if your emails are being ignored too you may want to look at re-wording them because if you have come across as you have in the above post then you have your answer right there.

WTF are you talking about?

an email is not a booking request.
i have not had any emails ignored, nor should you assume that i had had

i was merely saying that some WGs do not respond to emails or booking requests, quite a few do not display a contact number
so you have to email or make a booking request to contact them

if a booking request is ignored along with emails, then a punter has the opportunity to leave feedback albeit neutral
but at least other people will be aware.

is it time of the month CtG?

How am I supposed to know that you're responding to MY post when you've quoted SARAH?

i was responding to you both with the same post, i thought i had included both quotes, my mistake ( i put my hands up) but the sentiment remains the same.

OK, well I don't see how either of my posts previous to yours came across as at all grumpy, I was just pointing out that the AW availability diary being filled in doesn't stop random bookings coming through (with all kinds of prices and activity requests attached), and all the ones that come through without prior contact ALL turn out to be timewasters.

Not PMT, just the truth :unknown:

So does mine. I don't want to see someone without communicating with them first to be sure we both know what he is expecting from the booking. I show my number and take same day bookings so the availability diary wouldn't work for me.

As others have said, the common courtesy when intending to make a booking with a WG is to contact them first to see if they available on the day and time etc you have in mind, as well as any other queries you may have before making the actual booking, whether that is putting the Booking Request in via Adultwork or just confirming it over the Telephone.

The responses were fine - not because they were from prossies but simply because they knew technical limitations of the AW booking system. If the booking request page was controlled by the diary availability feature, then there would be a technical basis for the complaint, but it's not.

So few WGs use the next-to-useless diary system that I reckon a majority of punters with any sense ignore it. Prossies who are on the ball post a daily schedule on their profile and update it weekly. Current limitations mean that, in the unlikely event that the prossie is busy, a call, text or email confirmation and agreement is necessary to avoid double booking
A large number of punters welcome some pre-appointment contact anyway. It's a useful way to make sure that she is who she says she is, confirm advertised services are available, and any deal breaker requirements. Booking without any prior contact is more suited to an agency booking IMO (where there's fuck all choice anyway).

I always phone, e-mail or text first and that seems the preferred system for me and the WGs I see.  It works well in my view. AW booking can always be made after so that feedback can be left.

I agree there are flaws to the booking system but felt the way hillingdonpete worded his post didn't get him a good reply!!! Just my opinion!!

Interestingly, AW say they are aware that a WG can get double booked by the system and they allow this but the way I see it is, unless a WG is on top of the system a punter or 2 could put in a booking for an hours time just as the WG has started a 1 hour booking!!!
Then she's in trouble as 2 punters are waiting to hear if she's accepted the booking but she knows nothing about it!!!
Ok the chances are slim but it could happen.

I'm all for talking and arranging a booking before its made....
