Hello Everyone!

I use to practically live on Net-Model many years back, getting plenty of work (Paid and TF), critiques and making good contacts so thought I'd re-visit many years later as I'm wanting to get back into doing makeup again.

The site seems to be a LOT quieter than it use to be! What happened? I notice even the forum topics on the front page are days old, that use to update every few minutes.

I'm assuming everyone gone over to purple port now!

Keep well Danielle

I only recently joined but immediately became aware that this is a site barely ticking along. Now on Madcow and Purpleport where it seems everyone now is.

No support from owner in terms of updates to site etc has lead to a long slow die off. Still a few die hards on here.....no flame wars anymore though

quoting post from make_me_up:

In some ways there is still a sense of community in that those who remain are much more friendly than those on bigger sites.

If you post on the brand leading site right now you are likely to be torn to shreds by egotists and axe grinders! There seems to be so much bad temper on their forums.

People still do make bookings from here and there is the advantage that any thread you post will be up for days and not gone in 20 mins.

I think it's good to have a foot in both camps.

I agree with Ace. It's quiet here, but civilised. I haven't tried a casting recently, but I visit regularly for the photo competition. Why not join in?

Good point! - I have never entered. What's the process for posting photos?

There's a long post at the beginning of the thread, but these days we take things rather more casually.

You can enter any picture you please as long as you took it or are in it. Recently whoever posts first is considered to have set a rough theme, but there's no obligation to follow it.

Once there are three or more pictures it's game on, but the competition stays open until 9pm that evening. After that you can await the outcome or vote for whichever picture you like, except your own entry.

Votes should be sent to Ace, who is Grand High Panjandrum and arbiter of the competition.

It looks the same as the day I joined

Aesthetics aside, they seemed to have run to another site which I am part of (but still getting no models to photograph)

Thanks for the info - will look out the info about posting images - I noticed that slight change in format for the entries - it seems to work well.

Thanks Peter Birch for flying the comp flag. DonM if you have any problems please drop me a message and I'll help you through it. The most important thing is not to take it seriously.

I would like to amend the initial post and update but Circles the original post no longer frequents the site so I can ask him to post the edit for me.

Hi

Thanks for the offer of help and the good advice <smile>

I know Ken quite well and visited his old studio in Llanelli a few times

I find NM is a little more like the quiet warm cafe hidden away off the beaten track... compared to the impersonal corporate city centre coffee 'shoppe'

bookings few & far between - especially being in the frozen North - though chatty, informative & busy enough to keep it interesting....
