I thought Matt was looking at limiting the number of casting call postings to discourage gaming the results page... did anything ever come of this?

Seems that some models are deleting one casting call and adding a new one multiple times a day so they're always on the first page. It would be good to prevent this - or to add 'ignore list' functionality to the casting call page so that I could just remove them from view...

Thanks!

Some models do not realise that by not specifying a location that their casting rapidly disappears from view. If you specify a location then typically it is seen for a few days by photographers searching for castings in that region.

There may be a bug with the "Include casting calls that don't specify a location" option in Castings Calls List as I have noticed some castings on the front page which do not appear when I open the "Casting Calls List". I have London, South East and East Anglia regions as my default selection with "Include Castings  with No Location" ticked.

Not yet. Matt likes to put members on trust.
Unfortunately a minority see that as a sign of weakness and abuse his trust.
A few also feel that just because they pay for additional hosting they have a right to post what they wish.
