We did try that in the past but it was self-defeating as the worst offenders simply created new profiles*.
Consensus when we consulted Premium members was that it was best to leave Multiple No-Show
profiles visible so that members could decide if the wished to take the chance and book them.


* A few years ago we could use IP tracking but in these days of widespread mobile internet access that is no longer feasible.

Leave a negative reference and they are unlikely to get many bookings or will have to reduce their rates. With so much choice I would never book a model with a no show reference ...?

You have a negative reference on your profile following a late cancellation. Do you recommend that models observe similar criteria when choosing a photographer? Or is it somehow acceptable for a photographer to let a model down but not the other way round?
