Over the last few weeks we have seen a significant increase in Returning Users
requesting Reinstatement of their previously self-deleted Purestorm profiles.

In the old days of static IP numbers associated with desktop computers
we were often able to verify easily that Reinstatement Requests were genuine

but widespread use of floating IPs, smartphones and tablets often now rules this out.

When we receive a Reinstatement request we now reset the profile to Pending
but do not fully Reinstate until you have logged in and messaged us to say

that it actually is you and not somebody (e.g. an employer) trying to have
your closed account turned live so that they can view the portfolio.

Would users please note that this basic security step can only work if they keep their
password SECRET and they do not use the same password for different websites or
for accessing their email account etc.    Models please see here:-

+++++ YOUR PASSWORD SECURITY +++++

We have reason to believe that certain unscrupulous minor website owners are harvesting
model's email addresses and passwords to take over profiles and use the PM system of this
and  similar sites to contact other models to either try to encourage them to join their site or
to try to set up shoots for guys that Purestorm would consider to be Undesirables or Pests

When requesting Reinstatement of a self-deleted account please remember to tell us
the username of your previous portfolio so that Administrators can easily locate it. Thanks.
(All feedback, profile notes plus any images you did not remove should automatically reappear on Reinstatement.)
