Author Topic: Adultwork - Unable to send messages  (Read 1978 times)

Has anyone ever had a problem on Adultwork where all messages sent are automatically deleted.
I've tried emailing 4 different profiles, one of which I've never contacted before. I find it very hard to believe that they have all blocked my account.

Tried to contact them via their help pages but even that message doesn't get through either, very frustating!

Aw's in shit order at the moment (see my recent post)  :dash: :angry:. The sooner someone brings out a similar site which actually fucking works the better  :thumbsup:
I'd settle for the same number of scammers etc, because we can weed those out here  :drinks: between us, if only these basic things (don't get me started on the search facility  :mad: where one character or space not exactly correct means no result :dash:) actualy fucking WORKED  :scare:

There has got to be someone out there who can see the golden opportunity here. Hasn't there?  :unknown:
Think Myspace v Facebook, or auto-censored v UKP  :D

Never had a problem. Maybe your account has a bad punter alert against it, so they see that and boom you're kicked into touch.

I never had a problem with messages getting deleted, except by timewasting bitches.

The search facility on AW is amazing, best I've seen on any site - so many different options and ways of searching. Sure, the text search part isn't perfect, but we've all been spoiled by how good Google is at that. It's not easy to have a decent text search on a site, unless you're someone like Amazon with plenty of cash to throw at the problem.

I think that's unlikely TBH as I have over 50 +ive FB's

The search facility like the rest of the clunky rubbish site is shit. :dash: And you don't think that AW has the cash? :unknown: Seriously? They spend absolutely jack shit on improving the site, or even maintaining it  :angry: which is why they are absolutely ripe to be replaced by a better one. Nokia v Apple..

I was replying to the OP on the initial subject of the thread.

Hehe, point me to a site with a more comprehensive search facility, in any area let alone escorting, and I might take you seriously. And you think AW has as much cash as Amazon? I think you're living in a fantasy world.

I don't give a fuck whether you take me seriously or not. And I didn't say AW has as much as Amazon, nor that it needs as much to do ongoing improvements and maintenance.
Stop putting words in my mouth and I might take you seriously.

I don't care how many options the seach facility gives you, if you type in busty anal whore instead of Busty_analwhore and you get no search result at all, then that search facility is shit.

That is very true, don't think I have ever come across a search facility that is so poor in that regard.  Also the only one where when I'm on my phone pressing enter does not start the search, you have to log out of the keyboard and press the search button. Very irritating.
Banning reason: Two faced - Slagging off UKP and it's membership using fake account

Exactly - far from being the best search facility, AW is one of the worst  :dash: Mr Pleasure  :thumbsdown:

The fact that this aspect of the search facility is so bad is one of the main reasons why UKP took over from Cunternet. FR's would give the name of a girl, but couldn't post links so punters had to try to find the girl in question using AW's truly lamentable search facility, and would fail.  :angry: Every time.
UKP allowed :thumbsup: the posting of AW links and look what has happened. :P

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - we only use AW because there is not, as yet, a viable alternative.  :cry: :(

That may well be true but if anyone ever sets up an alternative they are likely to allow the same scams that we have to put up with on Adultwork, they will be in it for profit ------------------- not the love of punters.    :(

jimmy, I make you right, but, you know what? I'd settle for a site with the same level of scams (because we're good at spotting the here) that actually fucking worked.

It seems to work for me --------------- but I mainly access it via my PC and not a mobile phone.     :unknown:

My main problem is that my searches return hundreds of Romanian skanks, it has got worse over the last 18 months.   :bomb:

That's lucky.

I don't care how many options the seach facility gives you, if you type in busty anal whore instead of Busty_analwhore and you get no search result at all, then that search facility is shit.

That's because it's doing an exact phrase search. If you type "busty anal whore" it searches for that, not anything containing those three words. Just pick one thing you know is definitely in her profile name e.g. "anal" and search by region. You'll get a handful of profiles back at most. Not rocket science.

So learn from that bollocks and contact WGs who have phone numbers. A/W has NO interest in helping punters, just making money for the low lifes that own it.

Its a classic example of where having little real regulation with teeth and a monopoly position is bad for the user in my view.

Show me one other site in any field that lets me search for anything as specific as "a girl within 7 miles of postcode x who likes anal and CIM but doesn't do bareback, who has blue eyes, a 30" waist, huge tits, no tattoos and will charge me less than £120 an hour to bang her".

The AW search is fantastic, and I don't care how many people label me a fluffy for calling people out on this bullshit. Sure, the site isn't perfect, and of course they're only in it for the money. But you only have to look at how shitty and barely functional the alternatives are to see what a good job they've made of it.

I tend to agree. Is AW perfect? No, but it's easily the best at what it does.

It also doesn't claim to be punter orientated (unlike prossienet) so it has to try and tread the middle ground. If it was geared 100% to the punter (say enforcing full verification, compulsory face pictures and phone numbers, etc.) then you just wouldn't get a lot of prossies advertising there.

It is also a business and they have a duty to themselves. They want to make money and I don't have a problem with that.

The search facility, for what I want it for, is good (pleasure gives a good example). I agree with sedlmayer that searching for specific usernames can be irritating, but I don't tend to need that facility.

Competition is always good. Might make AW try harder and improve some of its features, but I think they do a pretty good job at appeasing all sides. Which is what they need to do.

It is not a crime to make a profit, I only wish I had the IT knowledge to set up a rival to Adultwork.    :hi:

yep agree with all that ^^ I dunno why you would want to search for specific usernames tbh and even if you do just put in a part of that name  :unknown:

Absolutely mate - it has got to happen soon. One of the best opportunities to make serious money with relatively little effort that I can think of at the moment....

That never seems to work when I try it. If it did, I'd have much less of a problem.
However, most search facilities are more flexible and sophisticated than that and will make "did you mean.." suggestions.
It actually doesn't now matter to me because reviews here are always accompanied by AW links, but it does make me smile when AW fanboys talk rubbish about how good the site is - you sound like you know something about IT, but you seriously insist that you think Aw is a good site....?

That's lucky.
Lucky for who?

Select female, tick 'escort' under services, tick appropriate selection under calling, select your chosen region, and put 'busty' in the nickname.

This brings up a manageable selection under any region, with every 'busty' name combo you could imagine...
