Not sure I've named this right.
I add Models I'd like to work with in the future in my favourites. However the model is unaware of this unless they have I think a gold or higher membership.
Whilst you could say if I desired to work with someone I should mail them, which is true for shoots you're planning at present.

But it would be useful if there was a notice system to models and photographers if someone wished to work with them, open to all members.
This could replace the rating system which seems to not really be of use, apart from if it related to individual images.

So long as it's not automatic, as that's not what everyone uses the favourites for. On a side note there are some people that have had me on their favourites for donkeys years & never said a word to me .

I think this could be a really good idea as it's not as daunting as messaging someone asking if they'd like to work with you, i.e. I could 'flag' someone and then they can choose to ignore it or contact me.

Good point Sharon. Probably would need a tick box for you to choose if you wanted this visable to the other user

Other than the ability to rate individual images, rather than the whole of someone's portfolio, and have the system average it all......this is the best idea I've seen here in ages.

The idea of a "flag" is brilliant!

Or maybe just as a button on someone's profile, e.g. where contact/add/refer is?

Edit: I just realise one is to add to favourites anyway, although it says 'buddy' for some reason.

Or maybe (getting complicated now) you could add tags for different things and have a location in your account where you can view this - e.g. pending shoot, would like to work with, I HATE YOU (joking), etc - although would like to work with would be the only one that would need notification to the other person I would think.

Definitely would be a good feature to have a flag system. I'm sure alot of possible shoots have been missed simply because two parties were never aware that the possibility was there

Could be a good idea. I have a few models I'd quite like to work with at some point in the future, not concrete anough to plan anything, but the ability to express an interest without organising anything would be useful.

Conversely, if someone flags me, I'd probably approach them first for projects they were suitable for, as it's always a plus if someone is definitely interested in working with you.

The only downside I see is that models might just spam tag huge numbers of photographers in order to promote themselves (and I say it this way round, as it's mostly photographers offering work to models).
