MetArt’s Top Ten models – a member’s analysis

Our resident historian and statistician Frank is today’s guest blogger, with a review of our current Top Ten and his impressions of how it works.

A little background: when we started the 50+ Club it was conceived as a way of honoring models whose careers were significant in making MetArt what it is today, the best artistic nude site on the internet. One of the statistics I give on each model inducted is how many times she has appeared in the Top Ten, which is marked with a red flag.

It became obvious that the old saying “out of sight, out of mind” was in play here, as many models with many red flags to their names are falling far down the ranking. Let’s take Iveta B as an example. If you look her up (on Classic view) now, you will find she is listed as #737 out of 3404 models (on the New site she is #176; all stats correct at time of writing). She debuted on June 30, 2006 and earned a red flag on her 14th appearance on January 13, 2007. She has had 74 Top Ten placements, 74 red flags, with the last coming on May 18, 2011. She is #4 on the 50+ Club list, with 93 appearances. This type of record will probably never be equaled for several reasons.

Before we go on, it must be noted that getting into the Top Ten is not a requirement for getting to the 50+ Club. Our newest inductee Mango A, for example, has 52 appearances on MetArt but no red flag Top Ten placements, even though she is the highest rated member of the 50+ Club right now.

When we started the 50+ Club, several of our models appeared in or near the Top Ten such as Lorena B, our most posted active model with 91 appearances. So what has changed?

Nothing here should be viewed as a complaint about the Top Ten ratings but rather to point out how it has evolved into what it is today. While it is my belief that models have always been rated on MetArt, the earliest red flag Top Ten I found came on January 1, 2007, awarded to Nikky Fox.

Several things happened when the New MetArt site was introduced. On Classic, when you bring up the model list, the numeric position by rating for each model is listed. This doesn’t happen on the New site. The models are still placed in order but on New no numbers are shown. The heading for each model on their home page was also changed to give more statistical information, including a whole Ranking box. In addition if you look at the model’s headshot picture on their home page for the top 99, a little gray icon appears in the lower right corner showing their current placing. The Red Flag is much more visible on the Classic model page but is still there on New, just hidden under the little + sign icon, and on the cover when you click on the photoset.

Now let’s look at today’s Top Ten (as of September 30). Gloria Sol is currently #1, being the only model with a 9.29 rating based on 2,028 votes. In today’s Top Ten, she also leads with eight Red Flags out of 19 appearances, which makes her also leading the appearances table. Four models, tied at 9.28, are listed as #2 through #5. Carolina Sweets was the only new model to join the Top Ten in September and came in at #10 with a 9.25 rating based on 548 votes after only two appearances. In fact, except for Mila Azul, with 17 appearances (now #2 with a 9.28 rating based on 2,125 votes), the other eight Top Ten models have only a total of 41 appearances between them. Of the current Top Ten, all but three were new models this year. The other three debuted in 2016. As K, MetArt's Content Manager, tries not to feature models more than once a month, all of these models are years away from the 50+ Club.

If you look at the numbers, any model with less than a 9.24 rating as of today has almost no chance of ever making the Top Ten. Why? In theory each member can only vote once on each model. Most models get most of their votes in their first couple of appearances and once that model has established her base score the ability to move that is limited. The more votes she has, the less chance of moving her base. She is at the mercy of more members discovering her and voting, or her photoset being good enough or bad enough to get a member to change their vote. Take as an example Mango, again. Her base was established by many sets with Vlad. With her vote total at 4,374 votes, think what it would take to change her 9.18 rating by as little as 0.01. There are nine other models sitting on 9.18, one of these being Katie A, our most recent 50+ Club inductee.

To give you a feel for how fluid this whole Top Ten thing is, I found that on October 1 another new model had won a Red Flag, Riley Anne. This was only her second set to be posted. Her debut “Presenting” set was posted on September 1, 2017. It now shows she had 52,660 views and a 9.25 rating based on 558 votes. Compare that to her set from October 1, which gained an 8.68 rating based on 158 votes after 9,688 views. Her rating box only shows the previous week at #110. Her home page shows a 9.26 member rating based on 510 ratings with 6,008 views. Will Riley Anne with her 9.26 base hold her rating up as more members rate her and let her keep her Top Ten status? We will see!

I am sure every model dreams of being able to say she made it into the Top Ten, with the threshold now at about that 9.26 mark. For many it will remain just that, a dream!

@Frank
Very interesting thoughts about the ranking.
I was always disappinted about the actual top ranking, because the longtime top models are missing.
Iveta B ist a very good example and also one of my all time favourite.

Where can I find the "50+ Club list"?

Before any new features are added I'd like to see he site fix the keyword search. There are some images that I've been searching for for ages that I cannot find, in part, because keyword search does not work.

There a model who has some pictures where there are 3 images in one picture. I remember the tryptic type image and it'd fabulous but I cannot locate it.

The keyword search is being totally reworked so it will be much more comprehensive, Nick101. You can also use the orange 'site feedback' tab on the left of your screen to submit suggestions, questions, critique etc :-)

When is that supposed to happen? I've been reading that it is being reworked for some time now. It is useless the way it is.

    I absolutely love her. She could sit on my face anytime. I just wanna cuddle with her naked. She looks like a good cuddler. Her butt looks so sweet, squeezable, and like a pillow I would rest my head on all the time. I just love everything about her. Her breasts are magical and so is her vagina. Thank you so much for finding this lost angel and bringing her into my life.

    I have only seen this luscious lady here, at this site - and those appearances draw, unreservedly, my appreciation. As a heavily medicated oldie, I am here to bask in beauty, youthfulness and sensuality - certainly none of my own. Probably an attempt to recall long ago entombed sensations/thoughts/wonders - and Jezabel certainly `ticks' all those boxes (thanks to the vagaries/exaggerations of a long life)! If I was a deeply-immersed fantasist, maybe her past/current practices would detract from those experiences - although innocence at even a soft porn site would seem a `tall order' - and thank God, or what would we be looking at right now! If she were seeking to enthrall my son, I might research more. If I was interviewing her for a job, maybe her other skill sets might need examination. But, no, I am just here to soak in that loveliness. Her past, to me, is irrelevant. I just love ogling her beauty and desirability now. Looking a `gift horse in the mouth' comes to mind - but each member has a right to their motivations for being here. I am happy with mine and the part this video plays in meeting those desires! Beautiful lady - and so far out of my reach that her other pursuits - short of slaughtering puppies - is immaterial.

    This girl is very pretty, but I bet we could make a fortune "leaking" these as the lost Katie Perry nudes.....

    In my opinion, if there were such a place as a Nude Art Hall of Fame, Alex Lynn's 3 Nasita videos would definitely belong there. This guy really knows what he is doing when it comes to erotic videos. I've only seen his videos of 1 other model, but they were similarly spectacular.

    His Nasita videos are so sexually arousing, yet so tasteful as well.

    An important component of Alex's competence seems to lie in his selection of the right models. You really can't teach a model to do the subtle sensual things that Nasita does in these videos. Either a model has "it" or she doesn't. I would guess that Alex auditions a number of models before he finds the right one.

    In his treatment of both of his models that I have seen, he maintains a "natural look" throughout all his videos. No excessive cosmetics, or other attempts to glamorize the model. He has the knack (and the artistic courage) to portray his models as simple everyday people, and not as recent arrivals from "Beauty Queen Heaven". That is the quality that I look for in Nude Art, and Alex has that nailed down.

    You don't have to make an exception with her since her breasts are definitely not large.

    Frankly, I don't like Charles Lightfoot's treatment of this model at all, neither the videos nor the photo sets. His "style" here is very out of character with the rest of MetArt.

    1) He has her partially clothed too much of the time.
    2) His photos, on the whole, have a hazy overlay. They are not sharp & clear.
    3) Out 3 photo sets & 3 videos, we only get 1 clear shot of her ass.
    4) The model's poses, both in the videos & the photos seem to be devoid of sensuality.

    I feel that this photographer/cinematographer is too fixated on the "art" part of erotic art. For God's sake, this is a porn site, after all, and not an art museum. Guys come here to get horny, and not simply to admire the aesthetics of an objet d'art. To be sure, most of us come here to see a tasteful, sophisticated, and artistic portrayal of porn, but porn nonetheless. From his work here, I must conclude that Lightfoot doesn't understand that.
