Thank you very much for this thread, I'm very new to everything in modeling and this helped me out a lot. Also the thread posted under this was an enormous help, I could have easily gotten scammed had I not read through these.

Pickup lines are just that, pickup lines. Do not mistaken them for career advice. It takes more than pretty to be a model, and even more to be successful. Photographers see beautiful people on regular basis, if you want to stand out, do it through your attitude

I agree.....Hahaha

I just went through 13 pages of this thread.  I hope I've memorized the important rules so i don't mess up.  Thanks for putting it up and thanks to everyone for posting.  It was a long thread but there were some funny ass parts to it.  No matter the uppercase lettering and wolf or bunnykind, it is awesome that people are willing to help you get started on something that you want to do.  I hope everyone succeeds as a model, photographer, MUA, etc...

And I'm not a bunny, wolf, deer, troll, or whatever.  I'm a god damn panda.

Oh dear my eyes hurt:) So much reading @_@
but i enjoyed every bit of it. I have to say my favorite part is the "creatures" lol
ha, I love all the names lol

Well someone referred me to this form if I want to seek help. I just wanted a little advice about what i can fix. I know that I need work but i would just like to know what on. Id really appreciate constructive criticism, I have read a few things about mean comments. I have only been a photographer for a little while, so i dont expect my work to be amazing, but it would help to recieve some insightful words of advice.

thank you

while it gives everyone here on MM something to do for a while
it demonstrates a total lack of class (and often talent)

That thread was THE MOST entertaining thing I have ever seen! Sat here and read the entire thread.Wow.

Aside from that,this is a great thread.Wish I had read it when I first became a member but glad I did now.Better late than never smile

Just finished reading most of this ginormous thread!

I've been an active member of many forum communities before but never have I received such a straight-forward, incredibly informative, and slightly warning introduction.

I truly hope that I use my resources here on MM to the upmost advantage.

Thank you, CLT!

I read this prior to being approved on MM and found it to not only be helpful, but sometimes entertaining!

I love the diversity of people coming together to help one another succeed. 

I'm new and I'll probably be around quite a bit, looking and reading and posting --- I only hope I don't fall into something dangerous (:

You are all great!  Thanks for the advice; I'm taking it with me!
