Some reflections on the forum

Hello all!

The great and very wise message of Exoscript (@Exoscript: Thank you!(y)) made me reflect on the Hentaied and especially this forum. I want to share my thoughts, because I think they can improve the forum:

I see this forum as great possibility for the Hentaied staff to get more ideas from the community as well as giving the community (us) the possibility to have more influence on the development of the site. In general, a win-win situation. This influence is in the three major elements, Girls (of course! A big thank you to all of them for being in front of the cam!!!(y)), the aliens (props, tentacles, or any other toys), and finally the story to bring all together. However, as Exoscript wrote in his disclaimers
(Exoscript wrote):
I'd also like to offer two disclaimers:

This is just a list of preferences that I wouldn't mind seeing more in your work; it's not objective in any way, represents only one user, and doesn't imply anything inadequate about your existing content

You're a business and you have to make money, which means creating content that appeals to specific demographic, on a budget, without making your actresses uncomfortable. Consequently, rather than just taking suggestions from some rando on the Internet, I'd recommend constructing polls based on some of the suggestions provided in this forum to see what your audience *really* wants.

You (@Exoscript) exactly hit the point here. All ideas and suggestions are usually the personal idea of one subscriber. Taking the idea un-reflected might not hit the “mainstream” of the other subscribers and might drive some of them to quit. So, how to overcome this. On the community side, I would encourage everybody to like or dis-like the ideas of others or even better write a comment. A good constructive discussion will improve the ideas and adopt them to a common wish, Hentaied can pick up. From the Hentaied staff, I would wish a bit more transparency: First, it would be cool to get to know more about the staff members. I don`t want to know your hobbies or personal stuff😊, no it would be cool to know which function you have in the team. This would give us the possibility to address an idea, issue or else directly to the right person. It would be also good to know roughly the course of the Hentaied spaceship. What are the new web-sites upcoming, in which area you are working right now, so that we can think on some ideas to help you making cool new props and later new videos. I know, some stuff you don`t want to spoiler or some you might hide from you competition, which is absolutly understandable…

Also, some feedback would be good on our proposals. Even negative, if a story would be too complex or you are missing cool props, we can re-write our ideas to continuously improve it. Also, a comment, “not in our current portfolio maybe later”, would help us to concentrate on things which help you to improve Hentaied.
Last but not least, I participated some month ago in a subscriber survey. Would it be possible to share the outcome of the survey? I`m used to get a feedback of a survey, when I participate.

To link all things up. For new girls: the Hentaied staff can review the proposals, check which girl might be available (I don`t know how this works with the agencies etc.) and start a poll for possible "candidates".

The same you can do for props: See, what can be realized (budget wise, safety wise, etc.) and then put the top four or six ideas in a poll.

For story ideas: Similar approach: Maybe you can open a story competition. Give some boundaries like rooms, props, girls etc. everybody can write a suggestion. You chose the best four or six and the community can vote in a poll. Sure this can`t be done for every week`s episode, but maybe you can have an annual special with extended playtime (one 1 h video as the only video in August) which is based on the winner`s story. I really got the impression here, that I`m at least not the only on who loves longer and more complex stories:D


These are just some ideas and reflections, don`t take them as criticism more as possible ways to further improve this lovely place here! Please leave a comment what you think! Thank you in advance!

Hello hello;

I Don't wanna make you feel that we don't read messages/forums or not care about polls!
In the middle of everything i always read most of everything to choose directions for Hentaied.
Unluckly my time is pretty limited and i still follow the biggest part of the production.

This is already in the plans! From December 9, we're gonna stop shooting for a while to organize this forum and the various ideas discussed here.

The main idea is to take the most commented / discussed and built together between users ideas and make them real.
In a case of a too complex idea, we could think to a crowdfunding to make it (we need to understand which terms to make this work).

Custom videos is basically not an option anymore due to the cost of the production / price that we may ask for it.

Also - we're expanding the scenes budget as you may have noticed from the feature movies, and is gonna rise and rise during the next months.
We're gonna shoot a scene that will include 3 minutes of cartoons and a lot of pro animations inside in the next days.

The members of Hentaied should talk more i agree too!! :) They will start to pop out more frequently soon

Cheers

I'm relatively new hear and from what I understand, the forum is quite new too. Like many new things, there are updates and things to reorganize which is great. I think it's great that you are doing it so quickly, many others would do it a months, if not years later. I think this sends a message about not only are you really active and care about the forum, but the fact that you respond is a statement in itself.

Do you know how you would like to reorganize it? If you would like someone to bounce ideas off of, or if there's anyway I can help, I am happy to give a bit of my time. Just let me know!

Hey Romero,



thank you very much for your feedback(y). Sorry, if my message was misleading. I think you are very dedicated in taking the ideas and the feedback form your subscribers and make them "real":alien:! This is what I really love at Hentaied! Just look at the latest video "Cum Dinner". I remember the conversation I had with hyboria in the comments of the "feeding" vid (he wrote in Italian and I answered in English, and it worked amazingly). He came up with the idea of a starving (not starving to death!) girl in the need to eat sperm for hunger and later she likes it...

BTW, I also see that you are online almost everyday sometime at strange times (in the middle of the night) to support the community here! I really appreciate it!

My idea was more to focus the feedback we give you to facilitate your work. However, this means also more interaction of the members (= subscribers!). I hardly see many conversations/discussion here yet. Maybe a moderation would be nice also to re-trigger the discussion once it stucks. A good example is your question about the plant vs. count ideas. Some idea came, but then the discussion stopped. If we could know what you think about the ideas, we can rethink and "improve" into something which is doable? So, feedback from your or your team`s end on our idea is very welcome.

If we would know a bit better, what you plan, we might create ideas to support your short-term plans...

Finally, since we (subscribers and Hentaied staff) find a good way to optimize the forum as a great place, the intention of my message is fulfilled.


Do you know how you would like to reorganize it? If you would like someone to bounce ideas off of, or if there's any way I can help, I am happy to give a bit of my time. Just let me know!
@Ivy Thank you for your offer to act as a kind of moderator or speaker of the subscribers

Sound exciting, Sound exciting, i wish that here on the forum there would be some bts pictures just to know what's going oni wish that here on the forum there would be some bts pictures just to know what's going on
So, yes @autosprint , I agree some bts stuff would be great.

Thank you all for this great place to exchange!

Last but not least, I participated some month ago in a subscriber survey. Would it be possible to share the outcome of the survey? I`m used to get a feedback of a survey, when I participate.

I'd love to see the results of this too. I (as I recall) had (what I thought) were some really good ideas that I put in there, but......I don't remember them. LOL! I was writing in the moment, and I tend to forget after the moment passes. :p All in all, love the site, love the forums, can't wait to see what's to cum. :D

@Lostarion .. Mate! Thank you... I'm not sure how often you wrote the words I thought... thank you. I really appreciate you and your reasonable opinion. Your posts are awesome .. make his words count twice :ROFLMAO:

@Romero ... Thanks for opening hentaied in the first place.. As of right now its the only site which is that hot and with its potential it will grow since this is QUALITY ... casual porn you find everywhere and here fantasy comes into play .. are we nerds or something ... I Anyway .. thank you. Also for reaching out to us and be open for ideas

1. Forums are very hard to keep track and I thought of some ways to improve it but there are so many facts to consider f.e.
  • integrating a rating system for ideas needs to consider time, member count on creation, real members of the site, read/rate ratio .. multiple accesses, even replies.. since feedback is essential .. not just "voting". ... its not really worth the effort
  • introducing sort of nomenclature for the subforums could help to form concent topics like
    • [lesbians] [tentacle] in front - scene with lebians and tentacle
    • [2 girls] [tentacles] 2 girls with a tentacles (they dont really interact with each other)
    • [girl] [monster] scene with a girl and a monster
    • [girl] [vore] [monster] a girl ending inside a warm slimy monster
    • ... all those have to be predefined and if one isnt available it has to be authorised by a Staff-Member (or maybe over vote in the community)
  • More Members can help very much and on the other hand .. I guess that would mean we need mods .. oh boy
... all in all.. I got nothing .. lol sry

2. In one thing I agree totally with @Lostarion .. transparency is a very good way to keep (me at least) but also shows the possibilities and the potential (and more importantly the staff interests) of growth .. not in the too detailed way ... L gave some good examples
Maybe with the introduction of the girls here in the forum .. tell us her preferences and her opinions or even her ideas ... so we can understand and work with it and adjust to it .. just as an idea. and please no member-holding-****-talk ... 90% truth would be nice :)

Cheers!

Thank you for your support(y)! I totally agree with all your points.
I just want to add storywise it would be cool to introduce a category for the location/time: fantasy (medival or historcal props set-up), casual (our days) and sci-fi (space set-up)...

Hey, hey! Also a happy new year to all of you.

Yes, I share your view that 2022 will be mind blowing! I understand your little disappointment. On the other hand this forum is now roughly two month old and we all read so many amazing ideas; now we must be a bit patient. I can imagine it`ll take some time to review all ideas and concepts, assess them re-create/combine them for great stories/scripts, get the best actresses in times of covid and make the videos...

Currently, most of us take a break from work. If we look back in 2021, we see how greatly this site developed now with this nice forum to exchange and the featured videos! So, I think also Romero and his team really deserved a couple of days to refresh, right?
Concerning transparency, you`re right they should/must improve a bit in the "forward" communication. On the other hand, if you have a question here on the forum you quickly get an answer most of the time from Romero himself!

Concerning 2022, I think we are just in the "silence before the storm". I just picked some highlights from different Romero`s posts:
Digital Aliens/monsters: Plants vs. counts: New Directors to increase the number of updates: (also have a closer look at the credits of the latest video - "from count till mouth 2"!)
Vore/cocoon: Nipple fucking: https://forum.hentaied.com/index.php?threads/nipples-and-navels.89/#post-450
STORY: https://forum.hentaied.com/index.php?threads/feature-videos.90/#post-456

I assume this is just the tip of the iceberg?

So, let`s relax a bit, lean back and let 2022 blow our minds!
Have a great day, cheers!
The post from Lostarion is based in a different thread but I think now it fits better here...

Thank you for that amazing collection :D
I totally agree with you and definitely the Hentaied-team deserve holidays and time for relaxing. They have done amazing work and truly raised this project to a complete new level!
These thoughts went more in the direction of cannelizing the updates of current topics and information for the community better - for example the latests Hentaied Newsletters provided hardly deep information or updates.
I'm just a bit worried about this forum, exchange and feedback topic, because I think there is a high risk that many good ideas or worthy exchanges could get lost because of missing feedback or not properly cannelized information (somebody posts something and doesn't get feedback and never posts something again) - even if ideas, girl suggestions etc. are not good or not realistic. It should be at least possible to get a short feedback or some kind of cannalized update (for example regarding the girl suggestion topic some kind of regularly updated list "under consideration", "not now but maybe later", "confirmed", "rejection" would be nice - currently many users listed names but there is no form of feedback). I think it's even not necessary that Romero do this himself.
I'm totally with you, the whole forum is almost two months old and things of course need time and I definitely looking forward to the upcoming months - hopefuly with a AVN-Award win ;) - just wanted to share my concerns/thoughts.

Yes i just wish more comunication through the forum from the staff. It would be nice to have some anticipation about new projects and have answers too feedbacks and requests.

Hello,

Thank you, @Valarion, for moving this topic here! Here we also have already Romero`s answer, why no feedback. It`s just a matter of focus. In my opinion, Romero and his team should put their attention to creating great videos instead of spending a lot of time to give an answer to everybody.
Just pragmatically, I think feedback is quite difficult because, any answer today could change in the future. Just imagine Romero gives the feedback "not possible" and two month later a new sponsor kicks in or the model is under a new contract or she chances her mind. The other way round is also feasible: Romero says. wow great idea let`s do this and in the end the prop needed gets too expensive. So, it`s hard to give a feedback except such a video is already in the making and such feedbacks we see from Romero.
For all the other ideas only standard feedback like "thank you for your idea, we put it in our idea database" would make sense in my eyes. I don`t think we need such feedback.
On the other hand, if you need a feedback, you can ask explicitly. For example: I asked Romero, if my video reviews are helpful for him and I got an answer.
Concerning information not given about new projects: In my opinion through this forum Romero gives a lot of hints about the multiple projects and updates they are working on (see my list and it`s only half of the new stuff he posted here!). This is much more than in the past via the newsletter. Finally, I love it to be a bit surprised on Saturdays, what update will come.
Concerning ideas. I don`t share the fear that ideas are lost. They are written down here.
I think we should more look in the direction what we can do. My starting post in this thread was also in the direction to us, the Hentaied subscribers. With this forum we have so many opportunities. Why not organize ourselves and start writing a thrilling story combining the best ideas and concepts we have here? Just as an idea. If we can organize a group of ten members working together on a script, that would be awesome!
BTW, I checked and collected all threads in the "Ideas /Script" group and the most discussed thread has only six members/subscribers involved! I could imagine that these six not necessarily represent the opinion of the majority of the Hentaied subscribers...
So, my conclusion would be relax and let 2022 blow your mind. Be active in the various discussions here even, if you don`t like the idea!
Let`s make this a great place to celebrate and develop Hentaied and the new sites to come.
Please also check Romero`s new thread: https://forum.hentaied.com/index.php?threads/how-we-develop-ideas-scripts-ideas-from-the-forum.98/ it`ll answer a lot already!
Have a great day!
