Well speaking personally, I tend to give up part way through scrolling the seemingly endless photos on Platinum and Gold models' portfolios, especially when they don't appear to be in chronological order, meaning having to wade through previously seen old photos to view the new ones. Silver membership seems to have the right balance of having enough photos to provide variety and interest, but not so many that they become tedious.

I would suggest you have a different selection of images on several sites...and select one as your anchor site if you put out paid casting calls etc.

Each of your profiles can refer to the others.....you could give each site a different flavour...and from what a lot of models tell me...each should refer to a FB profile as well.

Basically.....models and photographers are spoiled for choices now-days. As someone mentioned above.....endless ranks of images are probably counter productive. Selected images across different sites will probably attract more attention.

I guess you're referring to me not practising what I preach with Silver membership. Well believe me, it's not through lack of trying to upgrade, that's for sure. Every time I click on the 'Proceed with payment' part it just stalls on the 'Wait a few moments for authorisation' part. Then when I click on whatever it says to do next, f*** all happens. It's infuriating. I've spoken to the mods and they suggested trying a different browser (I've only got basic mobile internet), so I'm just waiting to find someone to do it for me. Bet you wish you'd never asked now

Mobile Internet is probably your problem - now we know this detail we will pass it on to
the webmaster,  who has been trying to ascertain precisely what your problem is.

I specifically and deliberately said 'refer' to a FB account......not add a link!

And of course...in the context of this post I was refering to a model account on FB...

Moderators are often attacked for our insistence that Model Security must be our priority
( usually by members who dislike rules or authority )
but we are not in a Popularity Pageant and will not turn a blind eye just to curry favour.

When models post external contact details on publicly visible areas of sites like this
they risk attracting the attention of some very unsavoury characters so we ask ALL members
to work with us by obeying site rules, and in doing so make life difficult for 'Undesirables'.

Within the last hour we have had to take two Model profiles offline as they foolishly
allowed an 'Undesirable' to hijack their profile to attempt to trick other models.

Clearview, I am forever in your debt. Thanks to your help and unwavering belief in me, I may soon have over 20 mediocre photos on my profile rather than the handful of mediocre ones on there at the moment. Thank you so much

If you think about a CV, it needs to be short,
otherwise the interviewer just gets bored and puts it in the bin .
Same with a photography portfolio, if it's too long (gold,platinum) you get bored
of looking through all the photo's, you just want to see a good selection, not 20 of each type.
Silver is perfect
