"I'd say that 9/10 models who are regular forumites are towards the low end of the scale." What!

Welcome to PS. Where, if, as a model, you express your views, you will be classified, by certain people, as "towards the low end of the (his) scale".

Purpleport banned me, I won't bother to explain why here, some know already. What they'd have anyone believe is that all banned members are wrong 'uns.

My factual experiences backed by evidence from the site, messages etc, is that the site has bad moderation and and unwillingness to accept they're ever in the wrong. The personalisation was to be expected and was born out of an injured ego from this very site iirc. There's some good folk on there but it's cliquey as hell and some made dogs are allowed to run wild for whatever reason to the detriment of others.

Purestorm needs to up its game though, if its to continue to provide an alternative that's viable, because sure enough, another site will come along which has brighter lights and that'll seem to the obvious choice for those who want something new and not managed by an Orwellian nightmare.

A good start would be for admin to reply to emails from long standing members asking for assistance. This thread demonstrates that no site can afford to rest on its laurels.

Wholeheartedly agree. I've sent them 2 emails in the past week, the second one reminding them that I'd sent the first one and waited the 'up to 48hrs' for a reply, but as of yet they've not bothered replying to either.

I've never had a problem getting replies when messaging admin on here. Perhaps the tone of my emails seem more agreeable to them?
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.

There was nothing wrong with the tone of either of my emails to them, they were both polite. Perhaps it matters more who the emails are from, rather than their tone or content.

I have mailed them a couple of times in the past (usually model safety related) and have always had a response within a few hours. Maybe your message has been marked as non urgent so takes a while longer for somebody to respond?

But the automated reply to sent emails says up to 48 hrs for non urgent enquiries. Maybe they should extend this over optimistic timeline to, say, a couple of weeks (assuming they'll have actually got back to me by then).

I'm sure they will have, especially after your forum post highlighting the non reply
