It does not seem to allow for the selection of multiple areas at the same time (for example models in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire etc).

If I am right, then this could be a very useful feature to add I would have thought.


Thanks as always.

Yes - would be good. Would also be good to be able to search by distance and/or by town.

(Even better - if it could come up with train times and prices    Only joking. )

I just came in here to suggest the same thing. Multiple selections on region would be excellent.

Here's another idea - what about grouping regions into countries. I.e. all Scottish regions in a Scotland country, all Welsh regions into a Wales country etc - so we can then search by country. I appreciate there is already a country selection in search criteria, but sometimes UK is too general and having the sub countries display under UK, so you can be more specific, would be nice.

Big problem with that is the South of Wales is difficult to access by the North and vice versa. It's actually quicker to go all the way along the M4 from say Swansea, right up the M5 and M6 then across again than to go straight through the country.

Regions would be better - in the sense of South Wales, Mid Wales and North Wales.

I would like it if models were automatically told how far away from a location they are when they attempt to reply to a casting.

A search criteria of the number of days since they last logged in could help remove a lot of dormant accounts. MM has this feature. I would typically check only for models who have logged in during the last two weeks. It is a complete waste of time bringing back model profiles where the model has not logged in for the past few months.

Searching on multiple counties would be good too.

Although, like you, I do tend to ignore models who have not logged in I suppose that as one can elect to get an email if there is a message, there is no need for them to log in regularly if they have enabled this feature.

The region button is playing up again, if you try to select another region after searching another you have to deselect the uk button and reselect again to get the list to show.

I'd also like to see the latest log ins not be affected by membership status, if I'm looking to find someone who's online who I can mail for a last minute shoot, I'd prefer not to wade through platinum,gold and silver members who logged in three days ago.

I always thought that this was one of the benefits which they pay for with their subscription, it's never been too much of an issue for me

I would like to see all the North Wales counties grouped into one. Wales on it's own would be no good, it's easier and quicker for me to get to the North West than to South Wales.

Agreed. It would be most useful if those currently on line were shown first, or the 'currently on line' list broken down into regions.
Much easier to try and find last minute replacements for the no shows / no communication brigade (again).

Also it would help if there was an indication that a model / photographer was prepared to travel and how far.

I'be said this somewhere before but it seems to me that the more effective way around it would he to allow accounts to select multiple locations so they appear in several searches. That kind of feature would be invaluable to people like me who are on county borders, I can head 10 miles in any direction and actually be in any one of 6 counties.

It's probably been said a thousand times already though...
