+1 Also, people who are close to London tend to list their location as 'London'. So I, in Essex, might be looking at someone's page showing their location as London (and me thinking they could be from Ealing or somewhere way out west) when in fact they're from 10 miles away near the Essex/London border.
If deciding what model to shoot based on location is a factor, why ask when you could be able to read on her profile in the first place - that's quicker and easier than asking (and saves the potential ping pong of telling them they live to far away and then they respond saying they don't, you say they do, and blah blah blah).
Massive plus 1 to RedChecker, Pluckphotography, and w4pictures . I don't mind what exact system is implemented as they have come up with good suggestions. If something is done about this, it would be great if a message went out to all existing Londoners letting them know about ask about / utilising this new feature - as an existing member I wouldn't know and therefore fail to update my profile.
Look forward to hearing for you .
...and if I want to use the search function? At present I can only specify London unless I'm missing something . I don't know if the OP meant his suggestion to apply to castings or the search but even if he didn't, could I suggest / ask this be ammended with one of the aforementioned suggestions?
Postcode-based distance seaching raises a whole new set of problems and idiosyncracies,
as many of those those who have used such radius-based systems will realise only too well. If there were a more efficient way of organising Searches our webmaster would have implemented it long ago.
