Hi all,

I'm finding the search facility to be a bit of a nightmare when trying to find a model to work with.

The reason being:

Mid Glamorgan = Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr & Caerphilly

South Glamorgan = Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan

West Glamorgan = Swansea, Neath Port Talbot

Now, a member can have Bridgend in their profile but not be found searching for 'Mid Glamorgan', Cardiff and not be found in South Glamorgan.

As all of the above counties are technically South Wales (not forgetting Carmarthenshire, Monmouthshire - and their constituent counties!!), it may be worth creating a 'region' search that differentiates between North and South Wales - but uses the above county names on the profile.

All the counties of South Wales are very easily accessible by the M4 and A roads from it - as well as having good public transport links.

This would make it easier for Welsh photographers and models - or those travelling to the area -bto work with each other.

I'm also sure that the same applies for the counties in England - with Bristol being a county in it's own right, but still being classed as in the county of Avon. Parts of Bristol are also classed as being in 'South Gloucestershire' and Bath is in Avon as well as being part of it's own county of Bath & North East Somerset. These counties are all within 20 miles of each other!

This issue has been raised before. It is hard to see why we can't have a method whereby a member types in a location and can search from there, at any radius out. MM and eBay manage it.

Indeed. And the casting call system is designed around a 'regions' system as well.

Agree, 'region' needs to be much more precise as its so useful. The present system is, to be blunt just far too vague, in Newcastle we consider ourselves 'north east' its a hell of a walk to Sheffield which is also considered 'north east'!
"Regions" such as Tyne and Wear, Durham, a la MM would make a lot more sense as would radius search ability.

Matt has plans afoot to increase the various search criteria but this will probably require all members
to provide the first portion of their postcode - something which currently many fail to do or do incorrectly.

Maybe so, but what's the problem in creating a "South, Mid and North Wales" section?

It was a lot easier when it was counties. I live between Southampton & Bournemouth but get casting calls from Kent & Plymouth ( frikkin miles away !) If it aint broke 'n' all that!
There is a chance that everything I just said is complete bollocks

A postcode based search would be fantastic...
