I've seen quite a few names pop up again recently but out of curiosity how many of us are still poking our nose in hopefully on a regular basis? Is it just a few creaking fossils on the photography side? Do we still have models hoping to find work on here?

I will admit I never think to post casting calls here now. Not that I do many now it is my full time job. With Purestorm now gone though I am wondering if maybe a few models and photographers who find the pace on the main site a little too much may start showing up here.

So who is still here and who is still actively looking for work or models?

Probably one of the creaking fossils you refer to, but still check in daily and keep an eye on Aces picture comp.
It would be great to see some resurgence. This always seemed to me to be the only site with a true feeling of community based on shared enthusiasm, rather than an ego trip.

I still pop in a few times a week. I've not put up a casting for ages though, never got any answers.

I recently deleted this from my portfolio details.

PLEASE NOTE: I currently am working with a number of regular models on a variety of projects. Other than that and shoots already booked I will not be taking on any more work, other than TF* and paid group shoots until 2014.

Updating my port here and reopened for business

There are still a few of the 2004 class of members here 15 years now, hopefully with the new site it will return to how it used to be.

The site is busier now than a couple of years ago, when if it hadn't been for Ace keeping the competition running it would have been almost completely inactive.

Agreed we all have a lot to thank Ace for on that. I freely admit I had my account deleted a good while back as I was so sure the site was destined to become a ghost ship just used by the odd GWC wanting to show his mates the porn he shot.

James did explain some of what happened during those email exchanges, which explained a great deal, so I am really hoping for him this site will stutter into life again once the new site does go live. Indeed there is no reason for us not to at least make an effort to post some drivel every now and then in the forms here. Who knows it may pull in a few more lurkers or drifters from Pursetorm yet to find a home.

Absolutely, and it's got to be healthier all round to have several viable modelling sites. Not that I'm doing much these days, but fingers crossed for the day I make a successful booking on the updated Net-Model.

I am a creaking fossil on here at the moment. Looking in every so often. Active a little else where at the moment. But work has been getting in the way since last September.
Hope to get back to more shoots soon

I log in every few weeks to check my messages. I don't bother with pic of the day because my feelings got hurt that I didn't get many votes! :P I do get the odd inquiry via here but then again I was deleted from PP.

I’m still here but not as active as I once was, though I am not as active anywhere else either - my get up and go has got up and gone for photography of models.

Ace's photo competition has me checking in daily - definitely old and probably a fossil. I would love to see this site back to busy, fingers crossed one day

The concept of beauty is is classically defined as “That ,which when seen pleases”. Pleasure is the final cause of beauty and thus is not the means to another end, but an end itself.

I was on here from 2006 to 2015 and I rejoined last year. I generally pop in each day to see what’s happening and I take part in the 3x3 comp when I have something suitable for the theme. There doesn’t seem to be any models that live within easy travelling distance of my home and so I’ve not arranged any shoots since I rejoined ... hopefully more will join as the site gets more popular

Hello, yes it has been a while. I think we met at the Plas Teg Jacobean mansion in North Wales quite some years ago in my memory serves me right?

I log in almost daily because.......I just do. I've not shot any new models or old models in over a year. I tend to upload old shots that I've re edited or found shots I've never used and upload those. I won't be actively looking for models till April which is just after I get my new camera...yaaay. I still love Net-Model more so than any other site (although purestorm I also loved but hadn't uploaded anything there in over 3 or 4 years). I'll only leave NM if NM goes.

Thankfully it is all looking quite promising on that front. Escape may be quiet here but he is very engaged on the new site and things are looking good. It would be nice to see a few models drifting back though.

So far we have JenSomerfield on this thread I see. Shame she is not a little closer to me.
