South, mid and north Wales would be nice!
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

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!



Please see original post about counties.

Where I am currently located, I can travel to Neath Port Talbot county within 2 miles, I'm in RCT or the Vale of Glamorgan within 15 miles, Cardiff, Merthyr, Swansea and Caerphilly Counties within 30 miles and within 50 miles I'm only missing out on Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Monmouthshire in the South.

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.


The problem I have with radius searches is the Thames - I can merrily search within a reasonable 30 minute drive and end up with many well over an hour once I've gone through Dartford.  Now if I could exclude everyone from Kent at the same time... (No offence meant to people from Kent, you're lovely people really, you just didn't build your half of the bridge so now we call our half "Southend Pier".)

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



And what's so bloody hard in keeping Yorkshire towns/cities out of the NORTH EAST!! Barnsley, Doncaster, Bradford in the NE?? Ridiculous!!

Jesus, just spotted one CC for Lincoln classed as the NE..... FARCICAL!

This has been brought up many times before, but for those who are unaware.
when Matt created the Purestorm database Post Office postcode data was unavailable
at reasonable cost to web designers so he did not build in this as a requirement of registration.
Only the Country and County fields in the Address section have been Required rather than Optional
so very few members have provided this information over the last 7 years that the site has been active.
Member searches by County are therefore possible but by postcode are currently impossible.
Casting Call Searches by County were originally tried but proved to be unworkable
so a region-based system was quickly introduced to crack the problem.



Matt is currently working on a new Search Criteria system so until then the above applies for England.
Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland should be self-explanatory.

Note that Casting Call Notifications can be tailored for multiple regions to suit members' specific requirements

So a photographer in say Berwick puts out a CC for ahem, "NE models" and gets replies from said NE models based in South Yorkshire????

At the moment I can see a model portfolio with 'London' as the location. Depending on her address, she can be 30 minutes away from me......or two hours away.

A member in Essex can be a mile from a member in Kent...or nearly 200, depending on their individual locations.

There is no alternative to a postcode system.

Come on, how can it work right when Matt thinks greater London is in the North Sea.

Before digital, photography consisted of only negative comments.
