Well, that's it then.

PP in your opinion is the winner.

Thank goodness this thread has ended.

A loyal Purestorm member.



I've been low key, but i've also been a loyal PS member too. The site is pretty static, it hasn't really responded to the new kid on the block has it? To survive in this field everything needs to be fluid, to adapt, evolve, innovate. standing still is going backwards.

As a loyal member surely you should be shouting for at least some of these things, because clearly it's hemorrhaging members and support and ultimately it will disappear if things continue to slide. I don't want to see that any more than you do.

what was the last innovative thing PS did? can u even remember? i can't. Going to PP isn't a betrayal, people will go where their needs are fulfilled and if PS stopped fulfilling it's member's needs then there's the betrayal right there.

LOL you almost made me shed a tear there

But you know it's always easiest to blame someone or something else when in fact the resolution lies within yourself (and others like you). You acknowledge that you've been low key and no doubt you've invested all your time elsewhere. Yet you dain to describe yourself as a loyal PS member! How can that possibly be the case if you've withdrawn your activity and placed it elsewhere? You're kidding nobody but yourself about your loyalty.

If a competitor offers a superior package for broadly the same amount, your loyalty is misplaced, surely?
A moot point considering we are all members of all sites under discussion here.

I don't think you should invest too much time into either tbh. I don't think either places do much good for me.

Where would you suggest as an alternative?

Has anybody else counted how many models have posted in this thread?

It's zero, by the way.
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

Indeed, I really don't understand the concept of blind loyalty to a web site. This place reminds me of a pub that has become a little run down, the décor faded. The crowd has moved to the shiny new place down the road, leaving behind a few die-hard locals leaning against the bar.

I am loyal financially, i am low key as regards forum activity, which as i understand is NOT a pre requisite for a paid membership. I haven't placed my activity onto PP - i am low key there too, that's my choice, but i get some interaction!
i finally agree on something you say, the problem indeed lies within yourself and there's none as blind as those that will not see. PS is going down hill, i'm sorry but it is. Accepting mediocrity is not being loyal, it's actually feeding the demise of the forum, if you care so much write to the decision makers, demand they do something before it's too late!

I'm sure you'll just ridicule this and not agree with a word.

Models, or the good ones at least, don't post in forum threads.
They go to bed early to get up early next day to prepare themselves for shoots.
That's what allows us to take snaps like this on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
