Why oh why are so many members stating their location as...
Greater London... Birmingham..etc (major towns) but their actual location could be many many miles away !, I.e, greater London is a HUGE place. If you live or work in say north London, it may not be practical to employ a model or tog in south London ! So, please please enter your true location. If you are in north London, say so.. If you are in say Essex, where in Essex ? It would save a lot of time and effort..!

The search system on NM is old and doesnt allow for wildcards, only an exact search query is recognised so if anyone wants to be found in searches they have to use common locations, nearby cities and other large population centres.
If you live in a small town or multiple locations you may as well be invisible to searches on NM.

In addtion using small towns has a safety/security implication to some models.

To be fair the location of a model shouldnt really be an problem. The UK is not exactly big, if a model is worth working with it doesnt matter where he is, if you are trying to arrange shoots based purely on proximity you can bet your Nelly you are going to run into problems that will make any saving on petrol meaningless.
