A certain other site, regularly, has 'who's got the best bum-----' etc threadsFox2006In honesty I'm unsure that I like Purestorm, I certainly dont dislike it, however I used to love it. For a long time it was the number one site but during the last year or so the level of professionalism by members has gone right down hill. For me the last straw was the[ 'Who's got the best tits on Purestorm thread' ]I cancelled my subscription that day and seldom logged back in. Now I know that this is down to some users of the forum and not the admins themselves, but it has to be said that the forums turned skanky...or call it what you will. Now, as previously discussed elsewhere, other sites have had their problems and I do think that the skankiness has moved to pastures more purple thus leaving these forums quiet. Is it enough for me to resubscribe?..no I think not, not yet anyway. I used to love logging on to Purestorm but not now, I hope things improve though.
Maybe the forums just went a bit quiet and down because everybody was a bit pooped by the economic crisis. But hey, its a shiny new year and all is well (apparently), so we should inject a bit of humour back into proceedings on here. Positive thinking is the way forward.
By the way, where is Pippins these days?
LoL The search is dynamic, tick a box and the results are filtered right away, you don't have to click a GO button or anything. What does annoy me is that you have to remember to pop a new tab when you click on a profile, otherwise when you go back you have to start over.PaulManuellAs an internet thicko who couldn't even set up my own profile (thanks Linderock) or make myself a Silver member (thanks Suzy Monty), Purestorm's fine for me because I can at least read the Forum and do searches on my own. I tried a search on Purple Port and couldn't find a 'Search' or 'Go' option anywhere to bring up models after filling out the ridiculously long list of criteria.
I've been a member of various photography forums / websites for the last 15 years.
Over the years there are some sites that I've stuck with and there are some that I've left. If I'm going to leave a site I just stop visiting it. I don't post a "Goodbye, I'm leaving" thread.
Similarly, if I'm unhappy with a website I wouldn't dream of posting a thread about it on another competing website. I would just leave.
So far, I think Purestorm is doing a decent job in providing what I need to hire models for shoots. Could it be improved? Yes, I'm sure there's always room for improvement, but it's doing OK for me.
