One of the first things most people like to check on entering a new website is to see what the latest additions are, and of course WACS provides this. There are three special pages covering new additions; one each for Models, Photo Sets and Video Clips. Hopefully many of the icons and terminologies used will be quite familiar by now.
This is the new model page, featuring just one new model, namely Roxanne, who was added on the 26th of August 2006! Since this user guide was first prepared and this screenshot taken in June 2008, you may be wondering how that came about. Generally new models are the least frequently added to a site, sets or videos appearing far more often. Therefore the new model page will wind back up to two years until it has found a reasonable number of new models (currently defined as more than five). Since we've only got three models currently featured on our prototype demonstrator site, it's a little short on entries here. In due course we hope to have more featured on our demonstration site, PinkMetallic.com but since it's an Open-Source/Creative Commons exercise the funding needs to come from somewhere. If you feel like donating towards the cost of additional sets, please just make contact with us or use the donate button on the site!
Quickly going over the entries we have here; there's the smaller of the two headshot icons, her name, and then some descriptive information. The top line is a general shortened description, then a little background info on where she's from and what kind of sets she does, then her attributes, and finally a summary of the current position. This includes the overall statistics for number of sets, images, videos etc, and details of any sets that are known about but not online. Due to the way WACS works, it is normal to add the model first, then download and install her sets. If the model record is added, but the sets have yet to be downloaded or unpacked, the statistics may not show any sets as yet.
Along the top of this page we have three pulldown menus; the first one favourites contains links to the index of models for each of the specially flagged categories of Favourite Models (introduced back in Chapter 5). Next along we have the various search options offered in the Search menu and the standard navigation menu discussed towards the end of Chapter 6.
While knowing who the newly added models are is neat, that doesn't mean very much if we don't actually have any content for them, which is where the newly added sets page comes in...
This is probably the most used of the new items pages, as this covers the newly added image sets. It's loosely based upon the detailed model page line entries introduced in the previous chapter, but simplified somewhat to remove the more esoteric elements. The icon, description, download and slideshow links are the same. It now includes the official set name and official icon if these are known. Next you have the physical location of the set, which in the case of the first set here indicates the set has been added to the Uniforms category in Gallery 001. Below that you have the three ratings bars, and at the bottom you have the set icons which for the first set consists of the sword and gun signifying weapons, the peaked cap signifying a uniform, then the razor and brush signifying the model is shaven, the shadow over an eye signifying see thru clothing and the panties with down arrow signifying that they are removed first before the other clothing.
Moving over to the right hand side the set is described as a solo set taken by photographer BKI; it's marked as a Studio set, featuring a Fantasy costume as the attire. It's set no 29, an original photo set to the site which is given as being "pinkmetallic" (our demonstration site) and you can indeed download this set from our site and it's classed as a subscription site (although it actually isn't - one day we should probably add more choices to that field). The bottom entry is the model's name and is of course linked to her model page, in this case the detailed version. There's a link on the set number too to the detailed set index, the link on the bold text description itself taking you to the set page.
As you continue on down the page, you see two other sets featured; note that they are respectively in the toys and babes areas. At the very bottom we have the summary of new sets for the day, the total for the week and a link to browse the previous week's new sets. The menus offer you "Related Lists" - last week's new image sets, this week's video sets and last week's video sets. You also get the standard menu of search options and the standard navigation menu.
This one covers the newly added videos, providing links, information and their icons. As well as the icons, you see information on the general type of the video, ratings, where it came from and links to the model pages for the models featured in it. Where it's a lesbian or group orgy movie (or set), all known models will be listed alphabetically. It's very similar to the previous page for new image sets and should be a pretty familiar layout by this point.
There are of course many other ways to find sets, and some of those will be explored in the next chapter...
