As to Model Mayhem there have been some significant changes there which affect what you see and experience on that site.
The original Owner of Model Mayhem who started the site for altrustic reasons sold it over a year ago to a company in Florida, Internet Brands and their motivations are a little more earthy. Internet Brands is a for profit company that is driven solely by the bottom line ie, the almighty dollar and have taken an extremely heavy handed approach towards the day to day operations at Model Mayhem.
The Moderators at Model Mayhem have been instructed to squash anything that might even be remotely be construed as detrimental to the money making efforts of Internet Brands.
This is why the VIP Photographer/Model program was launched at Model Mayhem and this is why the number of photos for a Basic member was slashed from 20 to 10. This is also why the 'new' Model Mayhem has become inundated with ads and pop-ups. It is all about the dollar and Model Mayhem has become a money making machine for its new Owner.
Keep up the great work Jimmie.
