Does Anyone Still Use Captain?

16 posts in this topic

What a joke!  I recently googled my favourite Thai WG, the 5'0 Zizzi, because I was trying to figure out just how many oriental agencies she was actually listed listed with (even she doesn't know).  According to C69, she is 5'4 to 5'6 and 'has no known aliases'.  So far, I have come up with at least six other aliases for her, though some of these may be fake and posted by B&S agencies.  How do those jokers (C69, not the scamming agencies) manage to stay in business?  And how can anyone credit their FRs?  Barnum was right, 'there's a sucker born every minute'! 

 

All hail, Punternet!

It is a truly shit site now, completely irrelevant with only a few aged posters, ancient owners and tired whores talking amongst themselves. They get really excited when some ancent slapper deigns to post a video once a year. Shame, it was good in its day.

Up to a point, it was the AW of its day, though C69's search engine required a lot of manipulation and a lot of patience if you wanted to make any kind of refined search.  Then there was the TER - wonder how that is doing.  It was always to US-centric for my taste but some of the reviews could be interesting.  The problem was that any review you posted for credit had to contain more info than I ever felt like revealing - they almost demanded a porno script from you.  As I said, all hail Punternet.

I heard it used to be a good site a few years ago so attempted to sign up, they didnt make it easy so i stopped trying. I have since been told that you will be scoffed at as low rent and actually receive flak from the members if you charge less than 150. To be honest I can't be bothered with people like that so I dont really have any interest in signing up. If someone can tell me that what I have heard (several times) isnt true then perhaps I would have on last attempt to sign up with them. 

 

I submitted a profile and sign up a few times, perhaps im on there and dont even know it, dont think so though

I joined up to see what was written about me and so I could view my profile which was a bit out of date. You have to pay a membership fee each month in order to access the behind the scenes stuff.

 

I did find the forum is quite 'soft', and some members weren't very clear on the legalities of prostitution which I find maintains some of the "I must pretend I'm not being paid for a sexual service" behaviour, which then makes folk afraid to report things, or to be clear on the telephone which actvities they offer making it difficult for both customer and provider. It's no major thing though since so many, many people out there really do not realise prostitution is quite legal.

 

Seems quite a quiet site really, and not sure how it'll survive with free, easier to access websites as Punternet and Adultwork becoming so prolific.

In it's day ( before AW came along) it was good, very good......now as mentioned above it's shite, confusing to navigate around..... when it had the black background & links in white/yellow they were easy to find now it's totally useless..... does anyone use Punterlink anymore? ..... stumbled on that site yesterday after about 10 years still looks the same as it did all those years ago.

Ultimately, these sites are only as good as their FR contributors and neither of the two I mentioned would appear to draw much input that would be useful to punters.  Neither of their 'proprietors' would appear to have paid much attention to the changes that the internet has wrought.  AW has a slightly different situation as far as 'reviews' are concerned - I am skeptical that many of its users really cares much what has been written by other punters, especially if they have not insight re the authors - but its more comprehensive and easily accessible 'profile' information more than makes up for that.  Actually, I regularly cross reference my AW findings with a scan of Punternet FRs.

Not sure if Punterlink is used much for their reviews or forum but it is still well up the ladder in a google search and a large percentage of my site hits come via P'link.

I use c69 occasionally but it's certainly not what it was.

Used to be a member of '69' but found it to be elitist and boring.  Only joined up to view my reviews but stuck around for a while.  i finally decided it was not worth the fee so that was the end of that then :)

 

Plink favours it's own ladies who have 69design websites.......  photoshopped to the hilt IMHO

 When I added a listing with my details to plink it made a massive difference to my bookings at the time.

Has it really gone down so badly.  I used to use them when they were free and they had a better vetting and scoring system of the girls than PN and with little restriction on who you reviewed,

Back about 15 years ago (I think Captain69 was established in 1997-1998), it was the only review site. Punternet came  a bit later, under a year or so after.

At those time, the clients only could review girls there as well as agencies and parlous if they had a personal website. First it was free, then in about 2002/03 they start to charge for membership. (I think it was £7/£8 per month then).  Still in the early stages: forum was quite interesting, lively and very informative. Char room was also well attended, and great fun.

 

Eventually its become to London based with addition of some European and American contributors to review and forum, and if any girl on the forum charged under £150 in hour, some of the local clique could make her quite inferior. Its fell down drastically, from what it used to be before. (IMHO)

 

I agree with a Tiggy: that owners of the  website become to complacent, (or to lazy) and stuck in the same route of the over decade ago approach, when the whole scene moved on the another level long time ago.

 

Maybe in a good old times £8 cost of membership certainly represented great value for money, but its not the case the now. I've no idea about the volume of Captain69 membership now, and dreading to estimate, lol.  About 4-5 years ago, I had few dozen or so of visitors a month from there. Now I am lucky to get one in 3-4 months.

Never did as I started to read the boards in 2004. I never did like secret societies.

Sorry: Meant to say visitors on my website, not actual bookings. As far as I know I did not had a client who a member of this site, (or found me through the link from there) for a number of years.
