I'm suprised how many times I've seen a person, be it photographer or model, appear online and when, out of curiosity, I've looked at their profiles, discovered that though they have been members a great many years, not only do they have no photos, no references but have said not a word about themselves.

Yes I know that until recently I hadn't used Net-Model for 5 years but I had photos, I had references and I had stuff on my profile.

Who are these ghostly lurkers?

Could be they have simply cleared the profile down as not using it assuming it would be deleted. At one stage I believe there was a program running that removed accounts with no images after a certain time but that broke a while back.

I know I did the same a few years ago but ended up having to email James to get my original profile taken down. At that time it looked like the site was about to get overrun with tacky images and I was not sure I wanted to be on that site. Only rejoined when I got to here of the new site being developed

It is my understanding (note careful insinuation of escape clause) that there will be a robot installed in the new iteration of the site that will clear unused accounts off the site automatically.

Hooray!

Sounds good. As I say my account was dormant for 5 years but people could see I was a "real" person with about 21 references at that time.

It's the completely blank profiles which I assume will be deleted or I would suggest that the owner of the profile be given 2 weeks to populate the profile or face deletion.

More and more, no I've noticed them, there are blank profiles, been here years, shown as being online at any one time. Reminds me of people wanting to see "naked ladies" so joining.

BTW other websites I know won't admit a person as a member until they have put details and a few photos up.

More and more they grow. New portfolios, recently formed, completely blank yet frequently visit To "look around" or what?

Maybe one of these ghosts could explain why they are here?
