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



How so exactly?

There's a South and there's a North Wales according to the regions - and it's impossible to search members by North and South Wales. Where's Mid Wales gone?

Until there's a better search facility, I'll just have to keep sourcing my models from other websites and use PS purely as a 'hosting' site.

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

Have not read all this, however would like to be able to search by experience.
And the nearest town should be provided, not just county.

I'd have to say that I do love the way Purpleport does this whereby you can search a radius of a town/postcode - far easier than trying to determine what counties are in what regions.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

An email to all members that it is a requirement to enter the first 3 characters of your postcode would populate the data easily.
The old profiles would not which is great as they are annoying anyhow.
If we knew that a new search system based on distance from postcode was then being implemented Im sure most users would update their profiles accordingly...... go on stick it on the bottom of your happy xmas email to everyone.... PLEASE
