The moderation recently on the forums has been helpful and very restrained. I am not aware of issues outside the forum but then I don't try and break the rules.

Have you other contact details for the models to find out why?
Are these serious models you were messaging
Do you know whether the models were unhappy with approaches they get from chancers and decided to leave [that is the one I hear about the most]
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

It's basically a case of everyone being under the belief that Purpleport is the only place to be for many models and many are simply ignoring or shutting down their accounts here.

If they don't want to come here then it's their loss as there are many of us still here looking to book them.

There's also the economy to consider on both sides of the lens. Amateur photographers will be feeling the pinch and will be cutting back with their hobby and models as such will suffer and perhaps look for a more stable form of employment.

Too little too late though, it would seem.

I'm not clear how forum moderation directly or indirectly links to models coming and going on the site.

It has always been the way that models come and go. Whether or not models are interested in Iconic's offer doesn't really mean much. Any established and serious model is going to maintain profiles on more than one modelling site so those that have actually closed their profile here have probably really retired.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

And moderation on the other site is SOOOOO neutral and restrained

Totally agree. I think you will find that the £200 benchmark day rate will get seriously eroded over this year.

Interestingly though I've seen a lot of models putting prices up in recent months. I don't know whether this is chancing it out of sheer desparation or perhaps a key few are surprisingly busy and can afford to up them.

Either way, I certainly haven't got the money to throw on shoots like I used to.
