Male Fraternities? And FootGuys update

Got this email, and with the author’s permission, I’m posting it. I didn’t know if any reader would have any suggestions.

Hey man wanted to reach out to see if you know of any male fraternities for men older than college age that haze? I would like to get hazed and enter into a brotherhood.

Definitely not looking for the stuff on your site though being tied would be cool, but no sex, naked etc.

I assume guys with sites like yours might follow men’s fraternities. Maybe cops let non-law enforcement in or something.

Anyone have any ideas? It’s an interesting proposition, at the very least.

At the moment, things are still pretty calm at FootGuys.com. I did get an email from them recently that said that they are still indeed planning on proceeding with their revamping of the site. It will divide into a limited free version, and a pay version with many, many more benefits (for instance, only pics and vid will be available to paying members). I’m looking most forward to the mobile site, and I do get a bit of a kick from the “Who viewed my profile?” feature that’s also coming to paying members.

I do wonder how many people on the site know this is still coming. Before, they posted the update/announcement as an email and global bulletin. This time, they only did an email (as least, as far as I know), which I wonder if many members even saw.

It will be interesting to see how people will react, and how many will stick around. I can see why the site owners have done it, and I even feel it’s pretty valid. But I do really think they unintentionally mishandled how they’re approached it, and I do fear a bit of an exodus because of that. I know I’m planning on giving it a chance. But I hope others join me.

In case you didn’t get it, here’s a copy of the email they sent recently, with all the details you’d need to know:

I generally think its all a good idea, although I personally would at least give the free members access to a limited number of pics, rather than none at all. Similar to how Recon does it. I fear without any access to pics, there really won’t be any free members. And I’m not sure if I’d really want to engage with a free member when I wouldn’t have any pics to see of them. 

We’ll see what happens.
