OK was thinking of a good way to analogise how the family of OT Production sites are presented to the world and came up with the idea of seeing it all as a physical building / floorplan like shown in the diagram above.

Basically I see it as a big secure storage type building which has a number of internal rooms, doors and windows, etc, and of course in which the individual storage/safety deposit boxes (Model Profiles/Content) are held according to their room (tease style) type.

So looking at the floorplan above imagine standing outside the physical building or representation of the whole OT family of sites and walking around it. First you will notice there are a number of external doors/windows, one for each area/room (except OCO & OSW) and as a visitor to the premises (the public) you have the ability to look through said windows and peek inside to see all the storage/security boxes with model names and samples of the content held within each box. This basically equates to the public tour pages for each site.

Now, you see something tempting and want to see more and decide to join one of the sites, eg, OO, and are given an electronic access pass key (userid) that is coded for that site and allows you to open the door and have a proper nose around and open ALL the storage/secure boxes in that room. However that particular pass key only works for that one room, ie, OO.

Another person thinks the OT room looks interesting and does something similar and is granted a pass key to the whole OT room and archive/catalog of goodies held there, including Tease @ Home and other OT related bonus features (subject to certain terms & conditions), but once again the OT pass key only works for this area. However the bonus for having an OT electronic access pass key is that you get opportunity to a broad spectrum of content that is representative of ALL the other OAS niche sites and there is 3 times more of it than any one individual OAS site (room).

Now you notice as you walk around the building outside that there is an entrance door for OT, OO, OS, OSS, LN, AL but you dont see one for OCO or OSW. This is where it gets interesting as when you upgrade to an OAS electronic access pass key and enter the building by either the OT, OO, OS or OSS external door you see there are internal doors to all the other OAS rooms, this time including OCO and OSW and your OAS electronic access pass key works for all these internal doors to all the rooms in the OAS area. Bingo you have hit the jackpot !!! Now you have access to a ton of stuff, pretty much 50 sets PER WEEK going forward plus entire back catalog. This would be a 'eat as much as you like' type scenario, or fill your boots kind of thing.

However, there are still two external doors we havent spoken about yet, ie, for the areas of the building marked LN and AL. Well whilst they form part of the overall building complex they are 'partitioned' from the other OAS areas and are stand alone/self-contained and you need to buy separate electronic access pass keys for each or both of these areas.

In summary, there is a lot of content that can be viewed/accessed inside the building and there is opportunity for you to see 'some' of this, or samples, through the external windows of OT, OO, OS, OSS, LN & AL but to actually get to see it in greater detail and be able to copy/download it you need to have the right electronic access pass keys (Userids).

So this is my take on the 'pick n mix' extravanga that OT Productions has to offer.

Hope it all makes sense (it did to me when I wrote it all - LOL)

Welcome to the world of MAD (or as my friends call it...... MUD)

OK, will get my coat now ........... ;-)

This is cool and is worthy of closer consideration.

BTW, what I should have added is that when visitors look through the windows of the OAS sites they see it based on old decor (old code), and when they actually purchase an electric access pass key and step into the building they see everything in a more vibrant/contempary (new intuitive code) way. The divide between how members/public see and experience things is miles apart but this may change in time when new code is also applied to the exterior of the building and OAS tour pages. This is something BEN has been working on for what seems like forever but keep your fingers crossed this happens sometime in 2018 or before we BREXIT in March 2019. This may include new windows for the OCO and OSW sites and possibly two new doors as well for them. Guess time will tell. Not sure what the plans are, if any, for the LN & AL parts of the building.

There hasnt been any news/updates or announcements re above from BEN the code interior/exterior decorator since September 2017

@IC - We've been hearing about this new code that @Ben's doing for some time now. The sky will be bluer, the grass greener.



If all this means visible improvements, not just in functionalitiy but also in appearance, how about posting here or in a new topic a bunch of "inside" screencaps so we can be all exciting about it?


I mean, it sounds good, but our bud @R2 is hard to impress. (If the emperor has no clothes, he'll be the first to blurt it out.) Plus, he's been an inside (heh) of the main OAS infrastucture (OT from the sounds of it) while I've been inside (heh) of the dark areas at the end of the infrastructure (AL) three or more times. So we would be in a good position to discuss the upcoming improvements.


Additionally, one might wonder if the improvements include a bit more budget for @Sarah to design with. She's done well with the White Bedroom and the Grey Lounge, so imagine a bit more funds for her to indulge her creativity with.


Just saying.

"Sometime in 2018 or before we BREXIT in March 2019"  .... Brexit date has been moved to "when pigs can fly" . Is Ben still around ? Rumour is that he's MIA in one of the Swedish no-go zones .    In my experience , changes in website code are often worse than before . Many sites have changed in the last 2 years , regular and erotic , and none of them are an improvement.  OAS website like it is now (pubic side) is easy & works well . I fear of what it will become after the change. LN and AL websites are aestetically pleasing , but functionality is limited.


But what do I know? I'm just a farm boy from the Great Plains ... oh no , that's bigBob .

@R2 - Tell me about it. Broad changes to a site. When the Cyber Club was known to be developing such an update, we didn't know what to expect. And, man, when it finally arrived, it was the end of it. Yikes.


All the more reason for @IC here to show us some screens to see what the idea is. Or, are TPTB deliberately keeping things under wraps like the Cyber Club did? Enquiring minds wanna know.

^ Seeing the screens won't change much . Even if we ( ) don't like the "new" site .    IC seems happy with it though.

As mentioned before the new code basically makes the sites more accessible over the three platforms most people now use in the real world, ie, Mobile, Tablet/Laptop & Desktop. Historically OAS was Desktop friendly but not so much for other more contemporary hardware/device platforms. That has now been addressed together with a more modern presentation of the content and features of all the sites. Essentially it is much more intuitive and future proofed.

Yep, would be no point providing screen shots as they only show presentation and part of the change. 

Suffice to say though guys if you ever take a quantum leap and sign up/join OnlyAllSites or any of the individual OAS sites you would instantly see and experience the changes they have made to the members areas. For us members it did take a few days/weeks to get use to the new layouts, etc, but it has become second nature now and when I pop back to the public tour pages and the public forums it just seems and works in such an old fashioned way like visiting an old ancient artifact and having to quickly adjust to how it 'use to be' in days gone by.

I am writing this post from the members side of the forum and it all looks very neat and tidy, even when I review it here too. But then when I see what the post looks like viewing like you guys do in 'public forum' mode I just go aaaaahhhhhh, cause it looks rubbish by comparison, doesnt layout in same way, line breaks get excluded, etc, etc, and you obviously don't have the same 'toolbar' features we all have over on the members forum.

I like the fact things have been made more consistent, standardise, especially font type/size, etc so when it is viewed on a non-desktop device it is legible and easy to read and consistent with other device types. 

One day you will either be exposed to it when it gets fully implemented on the public tours and relevant pages/forums, or you can see it by joining one or all of the OAS sites.

@IC - Yeah, I'd be satisfied seeing the presentation because I remember the inside of AL which was prolly the same style as the rest of the OAS sites.


So, post a screen of two of the new presentations so we can see how much more amazing and aw-sum it is compared to the old + busted original style here in the public forum.


C'mon.

OK, here's a few screenshots to show how same things look different between Public / Members forums

Click above images for larger versions as necessary

Now this post looks great viewing the Public forum FROM the Members side of things but looks different when I switch to viewing if via the Public Forums directly. Now you can start to see the difference between the two.

@IC - Thanks. It's definitely a more open and organized look. Can you show us a screen of the "home page" for, say, Only Tease, so we can see how the actual membership area (as opposed to just the Forum) looks?


I remember AL having a somewhat "amateur" style about it. Like the content was applied first, then the other stuff like text and graphics came later as they could be fit aournd the content. Gave the entire site an incomplete or 1990s appearance. Not that it affected browsing or usage of the site, but it created a low-budget impression.

OK it's a bit crude but have screenshot the OT Home page from today, basically the first option as highlighted in the Navigation/Menu bar, where you can see the other main options (but not their sub-options/dropdowns of course), and have crudely spliced the screenshots together as you will also see everything is scrollable !!!

When you click the 'Forum' function this is what we get

I am NOT going to go any further with this but hopefully it gives an idea of what it looks like inside. Obviously the other features have their own pages/layout and functionality but they reflect the style of the homepage, as far as text, graphics, standards, etc, go.

Thanks for this IC.     As for the forum look , I think the "old" look looks cleaner , compacter than the new . So for some-one who resists change and watches it on a big screen (not a smart phone) , I'd rather stick with the way things are on the public side. The OT home page looks nice enough , but again I like the old OT better (surprise , surprise !)  . The "Clothing and outfits" forum topic looks interesting . Seems you have a WQHD screen >> 2560 x 1440.

Nah, no surprise from me re your response. It was what I predicted you would say, at least internally in my mind so to speak.

My monitor is this one

^^ @IC - That's a nice re-creation of a long page of the new OAS style, thanks! Now I see it's more tidy. Maybe functionality is also upgraded but I don't remember AL being difficult or confoosing.


(And R2 can be kinda a pest, can't he?)

^ Yes I can be !   If it ain't broke , don't fix it !  But I get they had to update it for smart phones & tablets. I've said it many times before : newer isn't always better.  IC doesn't like criticism on the OAS sites . He may be the "silent one" of the two directors/shareholders/co-owners of OAS .

@R2 - Entirely agree w/you on that. And I suppose thousands of Cyber Club fans learned the hard way the value to not fixing things unnecessarily. So we'll be the last users of Windows XP and Windows 7, lol.

No I'm totally cool with things. As PDL can testify I often have my own 'personal observations' where things don't look/work as well as I think they should at times and offer possible solutions or ideas/enhancements to further refine or 'fine tune' things. You guys live in the past and I get that and are part of the 'if it ain't broke why fix it brigade' that obviously prefer to resist change/evolution, kind of supported by various posts you have made with basics like operating systems, XP and the like, so I was never going to be surprised to the response/feedback you provided, in fact that was a guaranteed certainity.

The 'silent one' you eluded to is Adrian, who you may remember from your halcyon/sporadic memberships of various OT Productions sites in the past and who was the original technician and codeman for the company. He pops in the forums once a year and disappears again as quickly as he appears, possibly around the annual company accounts/annual general meeting time to see how PDL is doing. ;-)

But... but... I think it was clear I thought the new style is tidier than the old one. Thing is, as @R2 points out, change for change's sake doesn't guarantee something better results. That's the fine line. So within reason, s'long as the AL girls take off their knickers, I'm prolly OK with most improvements.


So @IC as a man of vision and progress. If boobies are involved, then sign up @R2 and me.
