Looks like one of the guys running the new site managed to get the fan forum back online at: http://www.playboyfanforum.com/index.php
However AFAIK its independent to the new PBP site (although the old CC forum usernames/passwords apparently work). Looks like a good place to talk about PB related stuff.
Also PlayboyWiki is back up at its original site.
True on both counts.
I've been doing some digging around in the PBP site, and there is
some content there. The problem, though, is that it's really hard to find because the site has no discernible navigational structure. You have to search the models by name, which works only if you know her name and know she's on the site. The amount of content varies from model-to-model. Some have none; some have very little; and some have a surprising amount. Tiffany Fallon, for example, has 61 photo-sets--really!
It sounds like they're in the process of migrating the content into the new site, and there are rumors that there will be some navigational structure--eventually. On the plus-side, all of the sets are in zip-files, including the earliest Playmates. Once they get all the content moved in--assuming they do--it will be pretty easy to download content for your favorite models.
So far, the main problem, and it's a huge one, is the total lack of communication. It could hardly be more frustrating.
Thank goodness Playboy Wiki is back. It has always been one of the best features of the site.
