Hate to burst your bubble, but this place is totally dead. I've hung around way too long and I need to leave. In the 2 years that mr. Brown has owned this site all that has happened is the old pictures from 2004 to 2008 have been recycled as models having renewed interest in your work. Believe me, it is a total waste of time.
Thanks for that feedback.
Based on our stats, the forums appear to be the lesser popular section of the site, compared to other features.
We have seen a good increase in membership, as well as interactions between members. This has gone up significantly since we began retooling the service.
Interestingly, we found some unexpected trends in user activity - and should have some new features out relating to those observations soon.
When we began MuseCube (many years ago), we set out to do things differently, which worked to our advantage. Similar services in the current era are essentially operating with the same feature set. Some services work better than others, in terms of reliability or usability. In most cases, user loyalty is merely based on preference.
Our next phase will involve some level of reinvention, as well as approaching the market from a slightly different angle.
Our plan is to have the first round of these updates online within the next few months.
In the meantime, we are pushing hard on social media, and working to promote users who are currently using our services through those channels.
This is a great time to update your portfolios and take advantage of the down time to market yourselves. We'll do our part also.
Thanks all -
Thanks for posting the update on your plans. My hope is to see a revitalised MC in the not too distant future. One element that would help is to remove the 10 and 15 year old model portfolios that keep popping up almost daily. What triggers those is hard to find out; one thing is for sure, it does not come from the model.
Can't wait to see all of the other improvements that you are planning.

You know the reason I joined is to find models to work with. Of all my messages, number of replies..0! So I haven't used this site for that reason. If you can get MODELS to use this site, you'll be good to go. If not, Musecube without the Muses, kind of pointless. Hope you can revitalize this site, Model Mayhem needs some competition!
I see a little activity on the site but really hard to tell how much or how active members are. There is nothing that notes the last time they accessed their account.
I did a posting with not a single response as yet which makes me wonder
Sure hope the site powers up as it could be good!
The reason this place looks and feels "dead" is that most of the models that joined did so in 2004 to 2010. These 18 years olds are now in their thirties, married and with too many kids to have any time for modeling. Most do not ever check for messages here; this means all of your calls for work go directly into the "ether". The silence here is really silence.
