Adding 'Favorites Option' Proposal

On a number of occasions I've asked models about a shoot and they have said they have seen and liked my work but did not know how to approach me, becasue they were unsure if I would be interested in using them.

Both girls were already on my favorites list, therefore my proposal is this: when you add a favorite there is a tick box option to allow you to let the other person know you have added them as a favorite.

As a tick box those who want to add favorites in secret can do so - those who want to make it easy for models to approach them can do so.

is this a " Request for friendship” button?
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.

I suggested something similar about two years ago HERE
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.

It might be better if it could include some comment that you would like to work with the person.

Perhaps two tick boxes - TF - or paid.

I hate it when people have 10,000 plus friends on MM.
Amateur - happy to do TF with models with potential and enthusiasm. Website: www.mphodson.co.uk

I keep having to refuse 16 year olds who want to "friend" me! Well - I don't have to - but in view of "grooming"

My thoughts are not about it being friends, or friendship requests button, importantly nothing public, no lists of who is who's favorite for others to see - the default being completely discrete and not to tell the other person they are on your favorites list.

If others are like me photographers who's style I like I've got in favorites - models who may be useful are also there split into categories.

I would not go so far as it being a tacit offer of work - for me it's just a possible maybe for the future if the circumstances are right and the right project arrives.

I think publicly viewable "Lists" would be a better feature to add. Then models can see which lists they are on and contact photographers directly who like their work.
