          Thank you for the reply, but you are incorrect:
          I am looking at my list in Amateur videos right now, and only "scheduled" videos are at the beginning of the list.
          "waiting for conversion" videos appear on page 11 of 11.
          If a "waiting for conversion" video is ALSO scheduled for a future date, it appears in both places, however if it is set to go live as soon as it is finished converting, then it ONLY appears on the last page (11).
          I sent in a screenshot of my amateur video page to the email I got in response to this inquiry, but there is no way for me to post it here.

            This has been "under review" for about 8 months - any progress?

            Arami commented  · 

            I agree that homemade is an important distinction (esp. since that's what we make!) but there isn't much point unless there is also some sort of user review / flagging system because many people claim to be "amateur" who are really professional and makes the category meaningless.

              Wow! Look at that!!! You actually implemented my suggestion!!!!! It looks great. Thanks

              Arami commented  · 

              After some more thought, I have an idea of how to implement this:

              Currently if you have an amateur account, and you click on the "amateur" heading, you see a list of the most recent uploaded amateur videos.
              If you can watch it for free (i.e. it is your own) you see a green button that says "play"
              If you can not, you see a red button that says "purchase" and a grey button that says "preview"

              This would perfectly solve the issue of sorting content on the main page - bonus for the devs, it would require a minimum of new coding, since this page layout / system already exists on the xtube website.
              Just copy it over to the main video page.

              Then the pay videos could be listed accurately by their entire length, and it would be obvious to everyone that the 15sec clip is a preview of the rest, which is available for whatever cost.
              The red and green buttons would also make it fast and easy for users to zero in on what they are looking for.

                Xtube doesn't decide whether uploaded videos are free or pay. The user who uploads them decides.

                  The website doesn't get to decide who offers them content. They are a hosting site, not a producer. Mostly only ugly people want to give away their uploads for free. Good looking people know what they are worth, so they choose to have pay content. You want good stuff, pay for it. Simple

                    There are no 15 second videos. Those are previews. If you pay for them, you can watch the entire video.

                      Case in point - 33 videos posted by one single user in 3 hours, taking over the entire home age

                      Arami commented  · 

                      How about just limiting the number of videos any one person can post in any one day period?

                      There are no "15 second" videos. Those are previews, the whole video is longer - you just have to pay for it. Its true, xtube could make that more clear.

                            Two suggestions that could help:

                            1) more categories

                            2) flag buttons for users: "spam" (for fake amature stuff thats really an ad), "banned" (for illegal content", "copy write infringement" (for uploads of existing content or cam feeds), and "miscategorized".
                            If any one user gets (for example) 5 or more flags in a day, or 10 or more flags in a week, a human mod from xtube would be alerted and review the account, and issue warnings or delete accounts as they deem appropriate

                              Thank you for responding -
                              but 2 problems with that workaround:

                              1 - free clips from amateurs don't show up when you use the advanced search and click "amateur"

                              2 - I'm saying they should show up by DEFAULT, in the main video search, with everything else, so that people can see them without having to go through several extra steps - assuming they even realize there is content they are missing.

                                  ind - it is your opinion that everyone should be turned on by everything that YOU want them to be?
                                  There are thousands of fetishes out there (check out the list of categories at clips for sale!)
                                  You probably don't share most of them.
                                  Why should you have to look though all of them to find what you like, instead of just having a simple filter to narrow it down?

                                  Are you familiar with how the site works?
                                  "what about the completely ignored straight women"?
                                  Um - they click "I am female" , and "I like men" - viola, dick pics can show up on their view of the video page!
                                  How are they neglected?
                                  If a guy wants women to look at his cock, all he has to do is properly label his video/picture as what it is, and it can be viewed by people who are looking for it.

                                  If, however, your goal is to force / trick people into looking at your cock even if they don't want to, because you get off on being a flasher but are too scared to do it in public in real life then, well, sorry but, too bad for you.

                                  People not wanting to look at your dick does not make them backward or hateful.

                                    Reading these suggestions it appears that users don't get that the 15 sec clips are not really just 15 seconds long, and aren't ads to other sites. Instead of just listing them as "15sec", xtube could show them as their full length, and then clearly label them as pay-per-view, with free preview, on the main video / search page.
                                    That way you aren't "tricking" anyone into watching if they only want free content, but people can tell how long the video really is, and that it is not just an ad - its a preview.

                                      Perhaps "male" "female" and "other"?

                                      Some might find "other" objectionable too, but at least it covers everything, and you don't have to get into distinguishing transgender vs transsexual vs transvestite, pre vs post, gender fluid vs queer, etc etc

                                      Agree, this is independant of straight bi or gay.
                                      And its common enough that its kind of surprising it isn't already a standard feature - the percentage of trans people in porn is substantially higher than the general population, since so many straight men have a trans fetish...

                                        In addition, (or instead), there could be a universal filter (much like the top bar "I am male, I like female"), where you click if you want to see

                                        1) amateur and/or professional (or both)
                                        2) free and/or pay (or both)

                                        That way, not only can people looking for free content not waste time sorting through pay clips, but people who are here to watch actual home made, self-uploaded, amatuer content (which is, after all, the whole point of a "-tube" site, isn't it?) can filter out all the sponsored stuff, all the stuff from studio's (for example, "Just a Shag" by exoticoboy - great porn, but obviously neither home-made nor amateur), clips which are a front for advertising (bbcofficial with a bunch of short free clips designed to drive traffic to subscription pay sites via his website)

                                        Then you could completely eliminate the "amateur" page, (which only shows amatuer clips that are for pay). Have one page, which by default shows everything, and then if a person selects "amateur" only, it will show everything made by real people, at home, that they uploaded themselves (whether it is free or pay)
                                        If the user selects professional, it shows all the xtube sponsor clips, along with anything uploaded by a studio, advertiser, producer, etc (free or pay)

                                        Completely independent of that switch, users could select "free only", "pay only", or "everything", the results of which is self-explanatory.

                                        In the case of the OP of this suggestion, they could find what they are looking for by selecting both "amateur" and "free".

                                        After some more thought, I have an idea of how to implement this:

                                        Currently if you have an amateur account, and you click on the "amateur" heading, you see a list of the most recent uploaded amateur videos.
                                        If you can watch it for free (i.e. it is your own) you see a green button that says "play"
                                        If you can not, you see a red button that says "purchase" and a grey button that says "preview"

                                        This would perfectly solve the issue of sorting content on the main page - bonus for the devs, it would require a minimum of new coding, since this page layout / system already exists on the xtube website.
                                        Just copy it over to the main video page.

                                        Then the pay videos could be listed accurately by their entire length, and it would be obvious to everyone that the 15sec clip is a preview of the rest, which is available for whatever cost.
                                        The red and green buttons would also make it fast and easy for users to zero in on what they are looking for.

                                          "poz" not withstanding, there are actual committed couples who have sex.
                                          Half of x-tube is amateurs uploading homemade content.
                                          There is basically 0 risk from having sex with one's own monogamous partner, whether or not there is a camera going. In fact, it is much safer than using a condom with a series of strangers.
                                          Why should all these people get censored or filtered?

                                          Its kind of ridiculous that it even has a special category, when it represents actual all-natural sex, the evolutionary "default". If anything, there could be a special sub-category for condom sex.

                                            1) install AdBlock on your browser. Its free, and it makes all banner ads disappear on all websites.

                                            2) I understand if you find those kind of images disturbing and don't want to see them, but they aren't "obviously" abuse and rape. Its fake. Some people are into that sort of thing. Men AND women. Submissive get just as much out of it as dominants. Actually, I think usually even more so...
