The main thing that put me off PP was the owner. He used to be an obnoxious forum bully here, and I really don't want to give him by business.



He was on there as well, albeit sending private emails suggesting you don't belong on his site, hence the reason I left.

And yet here we get two idiots attacking every decent point that gets made...it makes my decision a lot easier, at least. It's a forum, people should be allowed their opinion, not turned on for being 'negative' every time they try to get a serious, possibly helpful conversation going. Or am I missing the point of a forum?



He no longer argues with people if they take him on in the forums. He simply bans them altogether... another great way to treat your paying customers...

Very true. Sometimes this place is a bit like all the loyal members of CompuServe, AOL and the other similar companies saying that the internet would never replace CompuServe {or whichever] because they had communities etc. Where are those companies now?

I just did a search on Models in Cambridgeshire, only 6 have joined in the first six months of this year. I remember when you used to see six in a week.

Moaning about a lack of loyalty isn't going to fix that. The whole site needs updating a bit.



I can't remember 6 models joining in cambs in a week ever

48 models - M & F - have joined the other place in the past 48 hours.... Country-wide, obviously, but if that isn't enough of a wake up call, I don't know what is.

Even if that worked it would be the same a searching London! - a huge area -  why keep defending the system when it is clearly not good,  a simple post code search is all that is needed.... members would on need to speciify the initial PL2 or PL area - which would be fine for those looking to avoid stalkers - and much eaiser for everyone else.



I'm not defending it. If you look a bit higher you'll see that I said that a simple x miles from postcode would be better. I'd just never seen that the casting call searches were done by region rather than county.

As I said, county searches are equally useless to me since I need to search 5 counties.

PP works on postcodes and still seems to attract a large number of models. To find someone within a 30 mile radius of my home, I need to search Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Norfolk, then start weeding them out by location. A simple "within 30 miles of my postcode" would simplify all of that. It's simple things like that that make PP so much more usable.



MM as well...it has used that system since before I joined...years ago. I never search for models on here as the system is too cumbersome.....unless looking for something like '50 plus model doing art nude' since I know I will only get a few models flagged up for this and I can quickly see who is available and where....

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.



Are we?

Other popular sites are run by "photographers" who are dangerous towards models.

Yes 'we' photographers are. Mostly. Almost all those contributing to this thread are in at least two of the other three sites I log into on a regular (daily) basis.
I know of whom you speak btw and you have my heartfelt support and sympathy. Many discussions on that subject offline.
Plus, you 'were' until your account was closed.
