castnews.org - a community-driven news portal for cast & brace sites
How does it work?
Anyone can submit sites (not only their own but also sites they like).
The system has a small "moderator" system so if we notice members who submit and update content
they will be given moderator status - castnews is community driven :)
Notice for site-owners: If your site is listed here and managed by community:
You can claim ownership for it! So take control if you want to! If you don't want your site to be listed at
all - give me a message and i will delete it.
Regarding images of updates and sites submitted by the community - we use only screenshots and publicly available content to describe & link content.
The intention behind castnews:
For some time i thought about developing a follow-up for castcentral.org links page.
I always liked cc links as a news resource but with the time it got messy and its not up to date anymore.
The problem with CC Links is, that it over-represents paysites - don't get me wrong paysites have their legitimacy,
and i'm a member of some as well. But: a webmaster of a free site should be given a way to show his content as well
(there is lots of good free content out there). And they won't pay per update...
I have no intention to make money with castnews - i think the casters community should be represented
in a modern way. If the costs get too high, i'll think about how to monetize the project.
"There are so many amazing smaller content creators out there that I’m sure I’m
unaware of. People are hosting content these days on Patreon, OnlyFans, TikTok, Instagram...
a plethora of platforms (that I don’t happen to use/frequent enough to find them)
Gone are the days of people setting up dedicated websites.
CC has been dying a slow death for a while now. I think that, as a community, we need to
come together to share our finds from on a platform like this
CC is a walled garden that doesn’t allow you to do that."
"It's so refreshing to see a creator in this community that doesn't feel the need
to monetize or profit from everything. Back when I discovered cast fetish online,
the majority of content wasn't monetized and it was just individual community
members hosting, creating, and sharing content on their own "time and dime".
Things are a lot different now. Any resource that will nurture those who still
want to contribute freely is a good thing, and so is a bit of competition in the
cast fetish ecosystem."
