Here is a list of some of the more noticeable changes:
- Completely over-hauled the photos section.
- News feed items are displayed slightly differently, showing photos more predominately
- Changes to the profile menu
- Changes to how comments are displayed
- You can now report many more things for moderation, such as news feed posts, profiles, forum posts etc
- You can now set your own photos as your profile picture
- Various bug fixes
- Various style changes
A new messaging system has been postponed due to unforeseen issues and will be coming shortly.
Please let me know your thoughts on the changes, or post bugs here.
You can easily see how many points a slave has, as well as a snippet from their profile description. You can also see a breakdown of their points and if a slave is owned (padlock icon).
The points will play a big role when the Pantheon returns shortly, so Masters should try to own as many high point slaves as possible.
Slaves over a certain number of points will also be given special privileges etc in the coming months, more details will be released soon.
As the site develops more criteria will be taken into account as well, not just what is on there currently.
The system is designed to reward slaves who take a more active role on the site.
Remember this is all a bit of fun, don't take it too seriously.
A new requested feature has been added, and that's the ability to leave feedback on other members.
To leave feedback, simply go to their profile and click the leave feedback button the the left hand column.
It's that easy!
You can now broadcast yourself to the world in our new Webcam section.
Masters, let slaves come and worship you without having to leave the site. Have them send you tributes as they gaze at you!
Slaves, why not get on-line and show those Masters you mean business. Want humiliation and exposure? Well now you can!
The section is still in development, so please report any bugs!
New features will be added to it over time.
It works like a normal lottery, you buy tickets, that money goes into a pot, the pot is drawn every Sunday at 8PM, and one random player will be sent all those credits.
The more tickets you buy, the more chance you have of winning!
Since starting this place, just over a year ago, I had a clear vision on how I wanted this site to turn out, and for the most part I am happy with it.
Things are not as far along the timeline that I had planned, but we'll get there. Part of the reason for being behind is the fact that I had a part time job, that silently became almost a full time one, and it took me away from my vision for this place, and the time that I could dedicate here.
Because I am 100% committed to making this the best Master and slave site out there, I decided to quit that part time job, and focus on this place.
I quit that job 2 days ago.
It's a risk, I know, but one that I hope will pay off. However in order to do that, I really need your help as well.
Please continue to refer people here, spread the word, tell people about this place, use the credit system. The continuation of this place really does depend on the members.
Know that I am committed to this. Sometimes things seem a bit amateurish, or I take a while to respond - but I run this place on my own, and I'm still learning what it takes to keep this place going.
Anyway, what I am trying to say is that now I don't have the restraints of my other job, expect updates here to come thick and fast. This place will hopefully explode over the next few months, all for the better.
Also guys, please respect the rules that I have set out in the Terms and Conditions. I do not want my site to become a clone of the others out there, and if we can stick to the rules you'll see what an awesome place this can become.
Anyway, enough rambling.
Yey! So exactly one year today Owned Fags was launched!
What a ride it's been! For the one year anniversary I thought I would recap on some of the events that have happened to get us to where we are now.
Well, first of all let me start by how this whole place came around.
I sort of stumbled myself onto this scene after being a cam model for a while, and the money was good. From there I found the whole financial domination scene and fell In love with it, it just seemed right to me.
After using some of the financial domination sites, I quickly discovered the darker side; the side that I actually found quite difficult to handle.
The unwanted blackmail, the addiction, the extreme self loathing some slaves had for themselves, it was to be quite honest shocking. I couldn't believe a lot of this was happening, and the admins of those sites did not care as long as they were making money.
I knew at that point what I had to do - create my own site. A site where people can play out this lifestyle/fetish in a safe environment.
After a few beers, Owned Fags was born!
A really quickly put together site, terrible graphics and only a handful of basic features, but it was enough at the time to get people to join and start building a user-base.
Over time the members grew, features were added, and it became easier to find the time to improve this place, as I could see it was actually all going to be worth it.
I had a clear vision on what I wanted this site to be like after one year, and for the most part everything I wanted has been achieved, but there is still a LONG way to go.
That's another thing, I want this site to continually grow, add new things, keep everything fresh. When was the last time any of those other sites added anything new? When did they last ask what YOU want to see, and then did it.
Granted, one site recently introduced credits (I wonder where they got that idea), BUT they also copied and pasted text directly from my site onto theirs! When I asked them about it they denied it and blocked me. Well I guess imitation is the best form of flattery, right?
Owned Fags wasn't supposed to be the final name of this site, I was going to change it after a few weeks of starting it, but I got busy and it stayed, I bet you didn't know that!
Introducing credits was a fun and interesting experience. The amount of legal and business stuff you have to go through to start this kinda thing is immense as I'm classed as a 'high risk' site. In the early days members used PayPal to buy credits. PayPal found out, suspended my account, and I never got the money back, thousands of pounds just lost in a moment! I really wanted to jack it all in at that point, but we're still here.
I've had threats made against me, stalked by slaves who just won't take no as an answer, had to deal with the most STUPID customer service questions - No I don't know why your internet connection isn't working at your house and you have to use an internet cafe (yes that was actually a question).
I'm glad you're all here along for the ride.
This next year is going to be even more fun than the last. We've got a good member base now, and I have a lot of enthusiasm to continue growing this place, as I can see you all want that. I have events planned and all other kinds of really cool stuff, but I can't do it without you!
I'm currently running this place at a (large) cost to myself, the fees and costs I have to pay are not cheap, and at the moment we do not have enough members buying credits to cover all costs. So please keep that in mind when your demanding PayPal tributes on Skype, the credit system is what keeps this place going, please respect that. Once we have enough members, I can lower the withdraw limit and things will be much easier, but it's down to YOU guys to show me you're serious about keeping this place afloat.
Please please please share us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or anything else you use to help this place grow, the bigger we are the better we are.
Anyway, enough of my rambling, let's all go get drunk ;)
Enjoy the fucking site :)
