    My sales are pitiful this month but I'm not uploading new clips so their glitch isn't causing that for me...for a few months my sales were good despite no uploads.

    Compared to other clip sites and Niteflirt; my sales has been very dry this month. I hope it picks in June and July.

    Anybody facing any issue while uploading since yesterday? After the maintenance window that they notified, i was still facing major issues as the uploader was not working or very slow and FTP files were not even getting time calculated, even now its the same, uploading happening since 30 minutes, and not even 3% is over. Is it just me? Just mailed them again, lets see what they have to say

    Upload speed has been alright, but compliance approvals are taking over an hour again.
    And they're also blocking stuff that was previously let through, so I guess it's block quota time.

    Well, they kind of fixed the stats
    The chart-type stats are "working", if you go to the stats there is this chart Global Hits this month. What do I mean by telling that they "kind of" fixed the stats? They are messed up. I see the hits for the next two days. It's showing me that tomorrow I will have 161 hits and the next day 88
    It's getting annoying, my sales are also terrible and I don't know how many people actually visited my store...But I also ask myself, if I could see my real stats now again. What if they were incredibly low? That was c4s that always put traffic in my store, I never even promoted it, my hits were quite good, and at the end of the month, I always was pretty pleased with my earnings.
    What would I do next? Even my best selling categories are dead now, and I am pretty sure that's not me. It's them. Something really bad is going on since the site was sold.
    My partner is watching my struggles with c4s and there is one thing he told me after seeing what is happening here "Maybe they bought this company to destroy it"...Well I know that kind of thing is happening, but mostly is when a big company is buying a small business, to open something similar later. I can't imagine something like that going on here...But who knows, after everything even this thought is possible.

    It's either fucked up or they are trying to predict your hits, which either way isn't helpful. My sales have been ranking for a while on c4s. This month they are embarrassing, since I can't look I don't know what's happening. I don't know what category they are coming from so I can't try to adjust. I don't know how they are finding me, so I don't know where to push advertising more. I don't know anything since I can't see the damn stats.

    I'm in the dark here. I know I can't find these kinds of stats on most other clip sites but I'm also not struggling to pull in sales elsewhere.

    I don't think they are intentionally ruining the site, I think they just don't know what they are doing and didn't realize the scale of the site. Bit off more than they could chew.

    This may only be a coincidence, but I thought I'd share.

    Deleting an older clip in a category "refreshed" the category update list and made the newest updates that had disappeared, reappear again.
    Everything had disappeared again a few hours later, but deleted another clip and a few minutes later, all updates are back again. Different category this time though. Hmmm.

    The clips were alternate formats and unsold, so no great loss. But they REALLY need to fix this. Makes less updated categories look completely dead.

    I've been without power or ability to work for 8 days due to a storm, I didn't expect things to be better when I came back but this sucks. Lots of clips missing. I'm reporting them...I'm glad more and more people are noticing and complaining, maybe they'll take more measures or redo the site or something.

    I noticed on store pages there's FOLLOW+ next to our store name, is this new? What is it like from the member end if you have an account? this could be a good way for members to keep up to date with their favourite studios, if it is functioning properly. Can someone post a screenshot?

    I have so many clips missing this week. I'm fed up. I sent this message to support, I hope the new ownership and management know what's going on.

    A lot of studios are complaining now about this issue on industry forums, it isn't making Clips4sale look good. We all miss the old Clips4sale that worked well and promoted our content properly. I don't know what's going on from the tech end, but for us, it feels like the issues aren't being taken seriously or handled competently. I'm sure it is affecting many more studios that report to you, I've spoken to producer friends who are having poor sales and they aren't checking categories. I've looked into it for them and their clips are also disappearing. Please do something more seriously about this or contract some experts who will. This has been going on for about 7 months now. We try to be patient and understanding, but this is truly ridiculous. Please pass along our concerns to your new ownership and management to get some more resources and attention on this matter.

    I needed to google who's the owner of c4s now since it's disappeared from my brain. If I see it correctly now it's CentroVentures/ModelCentro/Fancentro whatever they call themselves now. So I also googled the owner of this company, and...Well, Neil always seemed to me like just a normal guy, besides his huge success, I don't know, something in his face was always telling me he's a nice guy ( I even had some problems at the beginning of my c4s journey and was exchanging some emails with him, and from my experience, he was really nice).

    When it comes to this new owner- hmm...I don't trust guys that post pictures with tigers And I will keep the rest of my thoughts to myself.

    Justsometwat mentioned that she thinks that they just don't know what they're doing- and it's possibly very true but I just don't get it- they bought this huge company, and it probably cost them an insane amount of money, and now they don't know how to run it. It's just stupid, how can you buy this kind of platform not knowing how to fix problems. And it's not like some random dude just bought it, from what I see this company is associated with this kind of business so why they are acting like total newbies now.

    I just logged in and it says I have a few followers but that's it. I really hope it means they can see when we post a new clip. Some communication from C4S on everything would be nice.

    For anyone that was confused, the follower info is above the stats box (with the Clip Store, Tributes/Donations, Total, and Payout info) when you log in. It's just plain text so it blends in.

    When you sign up for a customer account you can click the follow button on a store's page. After that there's a little bell at the top of the screen that stays there and says "What's New?" next to it. When there's something new it has a little yellow dot on it as a notification (that does not appear to ever go away, even after clicking it). If you click on that it (becomes a drop down) has the newest videos of the store's you follow. I can see one I posted from 13 hours ago, then it goes from there 1d ago, 4d ago, etc. I can only see 5 in the drop down, but there's a See All button. When you click that it takes you to a "following" page. I can see those same videos. The only info it shows is the thumbnail, store name, video title, and then an add to wishlist, add to cart button. It seems to only show videos from the last 30 days.

    You can access all of this (the actual page, not just the drop down) when you click your username at the top right. It takes you to the same page listed above.


    ETA - while I do not think this is a bad change, I just wonder why this was being worked on when the stats still don't work. Don't break things then start a new project before you finish the old one. It's also very basic, there's just text and it's not even a fancy looking font. It's very plain with no graphics so it's not even an exciting page to look at. Plus it doesn't have enough info. I would like to see store name, title, and the main categories, length and size of video. There could be a read more to expand so they can see description. I don't think that should automatically show because it would feel like a lot of clutter.

    Thanks for the great info, JST! I didn't feel like signing up with a member account to find out. I like this update, considering the category disappearance problems, but not sure it sounds like it will be appealing enough for customers to use. I'll try to see what some of my customers think of it, if they've even noticed the change.

    It was surprisingly easy to sign up, I don't know why more customers don't do it. One neat thing I found was you can import your previous purchases from before you had a user account as long as the email address for the previous purchases is the same as the one for the user account. That might be something to mention to your customers if they haven't found this already. it is kind of hidden because it is hidden in "my settings".

    I would think promoting LGBTQ creators and content would be a better way to celebrate Pride on a fetish PORN site, than some rainbow or colourful clothing but what do I know...

    I wasn't aware of it, but I found out that C4S creates long previews of our clips for the Clips Search part of the website (https://www.clips4sale.com/clips/search#clip-tab). I never look at my clips in that part of the site, so it was a fluke thing I found it. They do not use the .gif previews I created for my store, they create their own. I figured out that if I create and upload my OWN short preview, that is what they will use for the Clips Search page and not create their own.

    I also had the preview option shut off and these previews (the ones created by C4S) were not shown in my store, so I guess I assumed it was working. Until I stumbled across my clip previews on the Clips search page.

    Maybe some people won't care, but I do. I like to control what the customer gets to see before purchasing the clip, not have C4S take liberties in creating long previews. Some things I don't want shown in the preview, only for paying customers. But creating and uploading my own previews is what 'fixed' that problem. If you don't do that, they will make their own out of your content.
    Never checked this out - it's all over the place! Yes, I do care. I leave the preview off if all the visuals needed is in the gif. I've noticed lately it will often still be on even if I deselect it, super annoying. If I want to have a preview I carefully choose one of the selections (10 seconds in, half clip etc) or I craft it with the preview creator. But apparently, none of these choices matter on the search page, instead a long ass preview is there, showing pretty much everything in the clip. I often have surprises in there, or I feel a prolonged clip will be enough to jerk off to. I also avoid too long and many clips of my real face - that is for paying customers.
    And as I said it's all over the place. Some clips wont show a preview at all on the search page even if I made one. Some show the long generated preview no matter what is selected. And some show the one I made. Aaargh. I'm so sick of all the bullshit. Just new features added every week without anything working properly.

    How do you handle customers that are VERY chatty? I have a couple who are my best paying customers and very nice so of course I will answer mails. But lately both are writing so much. I wait a couple days or three to answer, then minutes later there is another lengthy e-mail with tons of questions.

    Today my studio page doesn't show my custom text at the top, and it has switched to the grid view for my clips (I prefer the view that shows some of the description, so that people browsing don't have to click to find out more details.) I know that C4S stops showing the text and images we set up if it's been a month or more without new clips, but that's not it.

    Additionally, for a little while I was getting errors when trying to use the admin area- either it won't load at all, or it shows me the broadcast message about the Pride promotion, I click agree, and then I just get a blank page with "API authentication request failed." (That might have resolved now, as I type this.)

    Is anyone else having either of these issues?

    Edit: and now everything is back to normal.

    Hey, did they ever respond in regards to your message? I've mentioned too about how this has been happening to other studios but at this point it's basically ignored or I'm given some ridiculous excuse.

    We just need to keep pushing and hopefully something will change.

    Are you talking about my message, Natalie? They just ignored it and refreshed my clips on the category pages or whatever they do. I try to raise awareness but other producers don't have time (as if I do) to check or they don't seem to care. But it seems more and more of us are noticing and complaining. I hope they actually are trying to fix it and not bullshitting us.

    How is the clip disappearing issue for everyone else this week? Last week I had SO MANY missing and they did their thing and I was only able to check a week later. To my surprise, there were 0 clips missing (I only go back a month, which takes so long anyway as I update daily with 4 formats). Praying that they are making progress at fixing the issue.
