There's a word-wrap issue if people have listed lots of locations when looking at the list of casting calls.

if I list a casting call it asks for a County (optional)
but if I search I seem to be only able to search on region, is that correct?

thanks

Not silly at all, most of the changes you wouldn't have noticed but the main goal was to have the ability to add multipule locations as well as the locations can be set down to county and town/city level.

Good to know, we are still investigating and tweaking this issue, not 100% fixed just yet.

Yeah I have two pointers for you, if I want to offer work to both non-adult and adult style models, I either have to rely on people reading the casting or place the casting twice one in each category.

The second point, the location, if I posted France / Spain etc, does this mean only models in those countries will see them, say if I want UK models to work with me abroad?

If I have the right end of the stick then that is correct. Normally you would list the type of shoot on the basis of if it's up to a non-adult or adult category, if you were happy to photography one model for the non-adult part of the shoot and another model for the adult part of the shoot I would suggest placing two separate casting calls as they would be classed as two separate shoots.

A good point here, if the casting call was listed as France / Spain then when you load the casting call list you would need to select under location either 'Any' or 'Europe'' France / Spain to see the casting call. It wouldn't be shown under United Kingdom for instance even though you might be looking for a UK based model and offer travel to France / Spain. Currently the system isn't geared up for this but thanks for the point and suggestion.

Hey Tim, Glad to be able to put in some constructive input.

Back to the point above, hopefully I can describe what I saying over my dyslexia.
 
If a photographer is in need of a model(s) for an assignment, and they requires topless as the “minium level” and has not bound by any upper level they have the option of posting it in non-adult, but he could then miss out on good models that shoot adult who could do the work and they may not look at non-adult work, but if he posts the casting in adult, many non-adult models will dismiss the casting because their understanding of adult is open leg / pornographic in nature.
 
The fact is you have to be an “adult” to shoot topless and nude anyway…
 
What about redefining that, and have the levels as topless, nude, open leg etc as I think this will clarify casting much better, and models searching for topless work could select that, and be shown or jobs where topless is required.
 
I know it is hard as some categories cross over the boundaries into others, but as it currently stands “Adult” is very broad and unspecified
