Renderotica in transition!

Ok so Rotica is migrating to the new site, and I'm trying to follow the changes and developments every step of the way. Sorry I come across like a fanboy but I do owe these guys and the members a LOT for everything that has happened the past year and a half. 

I hope the members go easy on the management and the development team. Cut them a lot of slack, they probably haven't slept in days. I know what it is like migrating entire site / databases using new servers and that Anything... literally ANYTHING can go wrong when Bill Gates gets involved (haha). They're moving from a PERL database to an .NET ASPX system. That should be scary enough.

I like the new layout, haven't had the chance to check out the features yet because my account seems lost in translation still. Warning, don't change too much! you might make it harder for them to reinstate your account! Be patient!

Microsoft's ISS system and ASP.NET method will demand that the site gets reset every now and then, so it will go offline sometimes.

  1. Thanks for the heads up, mate! I was indeed wondering about why their site claimed that my account didnt exist, yesterday. It still does, but at least I'll know why.

  3. Thats great news! The layout of their old site was pretty awful in my opinion. They were overdue for a change.

  4. It was sort of working last night. I'm sure they're all pulling their hair out getting everything sorted. Most of the trouble I had was just site freezing.

  6. I'm still skeptical, E....just tried to look at your 4 new pix of The Girls, and ran out of "points" after 3. Seems un-necessarily cumbersome. AoD for me!

  7. hey guys, it seems like thing are slowly settling down, but they've still got a LOT to do! they sure got their ass handed to them, the poor developers! haha. Its a way better site already. But there's plenty of room for improvement.

  8. I like the new look a lot. Having Lali's butt RIGHT THERE in one's face tells me that this is a site for grown-ups.
    I'm very disappointed with the amount of immature and impatient bitching, whining, moaning and complaining. These kiddies should be thankful that folks are willing to give sooo much of their own (and likely unpaid) time to get a nice place to hang out, up and running.

    1. hehe yeah. That ass just tell you: take-no-prisoners erotica!!

      Shame about the bitching indeed. I suppose things could have been done a lot better, but I know server technology, especially ASP.NET. If you're doing it for the first time, you'll get your ass handed to you, several times, guaranteed.

      The site is in any case tonnes better than the old one, it just needs fine-tuning.

  9. Yah, I can't even get back in :-\ - they don't take my old name/password, plus any attempt to 'send lost password reminder' ends up with an expired page.

    I'll be patient - worst case create a new user.

    1. here's a backup of the old site: https://legacy.renderotica.com/gallery/.

      your old password should work on it! Don't add anything though, it will most likely not get migrated. But everything that was already there, will definitely be included in the migration. Any trouble with your account will eventually be resolved, I wouldn't worry about that.

Hey, because of a sudden influx of spam, I need to moderate comments from now on, unfortunately. I'll try find a work-around in the meanwhile. Cheers!
