photographer John Peters from West Sussex profile photo
Hi James, I have previously used the modelling level definition pages to show models, as new models sometimes list e.g. uk/us mag, not realising it means openleg nudes. And your written definitions are really clear and concise.

I just found that images have been added to the definitions. Unfortunately this may confuse matters more, as a lot of the images are not as per the written definitions... for example continental written definition is perfect as inserted toys/fingers but 3 of the images simply show uk mag level and one shows just a building (presumably a continental building).

@Legsandheels

Hi - because one or more of the images in your header pictures contains nudity, the header pictures will only display when the safe mode is off.

If you're browsing with safe mode on, which it sounds like you are, you cannot see your header pictures.

@glamourousbabe Hi - it looks like you've just managed to enter an image into the theme competition. At the moment the Image of the Week competition isn't open for entries as it is currently open for voting.
Once that competition ends, a new one starts on Sunday at midday, which you can enter in two ways:
If you're uploading a new photo, there will be a "Image of the Week" checkbox on the upload page
If you're entering an image already uploaded, there will be a "Image of the week" checkbox on the edit image page of your Photo Manager.

Hi James, can you give me the optimum settings for uploading images so there is no loss in quality or colours....does your uploader compress large images
2013-07-20
photographer Lucky13 from Aberdeenshire profile photo
@BO At the moment this option isn't in place. They're currently ordered by the A-vs-B rankings. You can reorder how they appear on the Photos page, in your Photo Manager

Lucky13 If the image is over 1000px on the longest side, it will be resized and saved at 100% quality.
For best results, I would advise resizing and uploading them under 1000px on the longest side.

Hi Jackass - sorry, I didn't see the previous comment(s). Images for the "Latest Images" section do not appear automatically, instead, a few images are chosen every hour. It allows us to give a bit more exposure to images by giving them longer on the home page whilst showing less from a set, so that the home page isn't covered in a single set.

@james_woodley - A member will automatically receive a message notification via email 3 days, 7 days and 14 days after receiving a message.

Sexypics_Dev - there is a "delete" link at the bottom of the Edit Castings page

@Kosmic_Kitty - not at this stage, I'm looking at the idea of adding a multi/batch uploader soon.

Raven_Nyx - you can block a member by going to their profile, and clicking "Block (member name)" at the bottom right of their profile. If their messages are unprofessional or inappropriate, please do report the member and we will look into it.

Gemmacullen - Apologies for taking a while so this may well be out of date information to you now. The response rate is recalculated every time you send or read a message and when you are sent a message or one of your messages is read. Sometimes the response rate may lag to update, so if it appears incorrect for a long period of time (an hour or more) please feel free to contact me via my profile and I can have it recalculated.

You can then assign people to that list by clicking on their thumbnail on the Saved Members list, and then clicking "Change List" underneath their profile photo on the popup box.

When you save members, an "Add to list" link will appear, allowing you to categorise them to a list.
