Be honest, if you were a model looking at your very sparse portfolio notes, would you bother?

Not exactly encouraging is it?

the moderators here have only one feature not available to members

we can edit posts in our allotted forum
which includes we can delete posts in our allotted forum
and we can move posts in our allotted forum to another forum

we can also suspend a member
- but we have to wait for the owner to reset that feature

we cannot delete images
we cannot modify profiles
we cannot change anything here that we might like to
we cannot see anything beyond what other members see
we have no powers to arbitrate except using NM mail


we cannot do anything other than edit in our forums - OK ?

I've pretty much given up on this site, I only check in every now and then to see if there's any spark of life. When I do contact a model about a shoot, I only direct them to my profile here to see my references, while I build up my references on the other site. Face it, Net-Model is a dead duck.

Quoting MattMiller:


3: Im still hoping Kimmylouise will ask me for a shag, Just kidding!, Last time I slept with a model from NM I had to marry her, Just celebrated my third wedding anniversery ... Let this be a warning to anyone thinking of freternising with models, I have to do the hoovering and washing up and everything, its pure hell!



Thanks for the warning Matt. I'll keep it in my pants. :-)

Not entirely.. I've booked and worked with some excellent models via this site, newbies to experienced professionals.. through there are just less active users on here than other sites..

Being in the NE it tends to mean a fair bit of travel as there are few active users up here.

I only joined a week ago,and I have to say,it's rubbish. I have had 3 people message me,it replied to all stating I was an amateur photographer they all said that was OK, we agree time,price,style....then nothing.One said she wasn't well,yet she has time to reply to many new threads (and by many I mean the one new one in a week of being here )
As for paying for vip membership, not a chance.

I booked this model last week and she failed to show up with no reason given at all.She has had the remark I posted removed from the site I used because she says there was no booking despite my long list of e-mails confirming it.My wife is a model so I see it from both sides,and rarely complain,but as we spent £2-- on location and had a crew to pay I thought I was correct to do so

@Martin72 booked me for a shoot tomorrow. I have been trying to confirm since the weekend - no reply either here or from his email. It works two ways. I now have no shoot! Thanks!

quoting post from martin72:

So from this post and your post on the 13th:

1) If people don't reply to you about shoots, it's this site's fault.
2) If you don't reply to people about shoots, it's because you have a real full time job with no internet access.

Maybe "Martin" should do the right thing and give the model a ring, or acquire internet somehow.

I do wonder that its answered in the third person.

On the day he has no Internet- he has posted on here saying he has no internet access, i wonder how you can post on here without that.
and if you have logged into here you would notice you had messages too you may be only able to answer 4 of them though.

or its another person who has logged in to his account to post that reply.

Another member who has worked with 0 and 0 refs too, and only one picture in their profile.

Once the shoot is agreed I always swap numbers.. mine first and if I don't get one back the shoot doesn't go ahead..

We all start somewhere so a few selfies are fine.. the big decider for me is how good or bad the pre-shoot comms are.. lots of 'txt spk yr folio is gr8 hun x' and I'll probably give it a miss..

Purestorm still exists... just. And there's a healthy amount on modelmayhem. Most of the traffic is on purpleport.

quoting post from curvyladygem:
I have recently just joined this site, I was on here ten years ago and it just seems to be dropping off and off, only 18 members online - No chat in the forums - I remember when it used to be 200+ members and busy forums.
----------------------------------------------------------

Welcome back to the site, there are still quite a few of us still around on here from 10 or 11 years ago.

The site is only what we make of it, and i still enjoy working with models from here, when i can.

I dont post much and its taken some time to get near 5000 views.

The issue of models and photographers in some way letting each other down has always existed and will always exist. Directly of course it is not the fault of this or any other site e.g. Purestorm, Purpleport etc.

However here anyone can sign up so long as they have an email address where as with Purestorm, Purpleport and probably others new profiles must either be approved before going live or are vetted and removed if they do not meet stipulated conditions / standards.

Hence this site is far more prone to timewasters who can not create and/or keep a public profile on other sites. Profiles seem only to be deleted if they break certain rules e.g. offering / seeking higher level adult services.

So just as an FYI.

I recently offered to buy Net-Model from James and bring it back to life.

He said that NM was not for sale and that work on the updated software was still under way.
