Let's be kind and assume that work is so scarce that people will clutch at straws.
Or less kind and assume that they don't bother to read stuff. I have got into the habit recently of specifying in great detail rates, where I want to shoot, what I want to shoot, how far I will travel etc. I still get loads of responses from models from the other end of the country, who don't shoot to the required level and, yes, want more money than is on offer (sometimes more money that anyone would reasonably pay!). Such is life.
Yeah, I know. I have been doing this for some 8 years... Sometimes it's just nice to vent...
I usually write very detailed castings. They don't get read, and I get a bunch of questions.
When I tried less details, I still get questions about the 5 lines that I actually wrote...
That's the nature of the beast, the mention of scarce work, is probably a factor. But, like OP I do wish that a more careful look at more than just 'paid work' is done. Just a couple that made me wonder what I'd put in the casting, one was a 3 hour shoot, stating , clearly Newcastle area, got a reply from Sussex. Another studio shoot, gave day, date and times, I was asked if I could change day, date and time, as model worked that day?
I think it's just sloppy work reading the castings. I think it's a "cut and paste to every paid casting there is" kind of problem... But it's annoying.
Looking to create a derivative of the abbreviation used many years ago; RTFM
How about RTFC? Who's with me!
Payment; NOK 500/h models have no idea what that converts to in £ sterling
Google is your friend. Most? don't probably know but one can use Google search to do unit conversions.
For example, write 500 NOK to GBP and Google will give you the amount in GBP
500 Norwegian kroner =48.2908265 British pounds
Likewise one can conver kg to pounds etc.

Bearing in mind responses to TF castings include the reply "Is it payed".........
