I don't know 'em, but they've been in and out of repair for a while now. I actually had the same problem today as far as needing a model's phone number off of there, but luckily she's smart (unlike myself ) -- she had written my number elsewhere and called me instead.

Hopefully they'll get up and running soon! That's my main source of models for my school assignments.

It's not hard to figure out what the problem is. Model Mayhem has grown at an exponential rate for the last two years and is now substantially larger (in shear numbers) than the other model place. Unfortunately they really haven't developed a revenue model which can support this growth, and it shows.

Model sites like MM can be good, fast, and free, they just can't good, fast and free all at the same time for very long.

No, but they have been off and on for a week now. I really wish they would get their act together.

Looks like it's back up! Most of it anyway. I just got back into my messages.

EDIT: Um... nevermind.

Who cares about MM? The site has been going downhill for a while now... and if they can't keep it working... it's time to find a new hot spot.

Seems both hardware issues and programming issues...it's been slow for quite a while and that lends itself to the hardware or the host...software and data base issues have been going on for a while now...so, it's a crap shoot on when it will be up again....
