I received a mass email requesting that I come back to OMP. It said to email Brett at onemodelplace.com for a 1 year trial membership, that I had to act fast within 1 week and it stated that they had made all sorts of changes.

The only reason I left was due to netmanagers who clearly had no idea what they were doing as long as they were in it to collect money or possibly as a way to get women. I also saw models who had webcam images that photographers quoted as saying they were great to work with, but neither of them had any images to show for it.

My questions for all of you, are you satisfied with the current changes? Or is this a fake phishing scam? I just want to be safe, as some of you know alot of things I do not.

ah yes, the site where models don't have to pay for anything and photographers are expected to behave like atms.

they haven't changed enough.

Bravo! JonScott. You said it like it is at OMP. That organization doesn't deserve any support from photographers, period.

They have made substantial changes, for the better.

I am a current and fee paying customer, though I have not been actively shooting recently.

You can now tag and comment on individual photos as well as models. You can see who has looked at your portfolio and when. You can readily see who you've tagged and who has tagged you. It's much more of a social network than it has been in the past.

I urge you to try it out again.

I tried them for a bunch of years, rarely if ever made a cent from any contacts I made there, If they were free, then I might go back, otherwise FM...

It's a one year free trial, might as well give it a shot... YMMV

Thanks guys for the responses. This thread can also be what is it that we like about forums, what are the things that we do not like? Think of this is a wish list to help future people morph or cater to the markets.

I for one enjoy the forums for ideas, friendships, knowledge. And the fact that I just enjoy photography period. I have gained several friends from places like here and other places.

I'm a long time member of OMP and I don't find anymore wannabes on it than MM. Both have plenty of webcam-payme models.

OMP does seem to me to have more of the professional - and I mean that in the best sense of the word - models than MM. Models I'd want to pay.

That said, I don't like the new redesign. It is way too cluttered. I think they made the classic mistake of thinking more features = more useful.

The challenge is that many people like the networking aspect of MM, Facebook, MySpace and others. So they responded with their version.

At first, my reaction was like yours--this is massive overkill. But now that I have become accustomed to the menu structure, I know where to find what I want quickly and efficiently.

I agree with your other comments.
