Do hidden forums make you visit less often?Page 1 of 1    
Just curious really - I have found that now that I have to search for the forums, and there are fewer visitors and posts, I find that I am not dropping by POF as often.

I tell myself that I belong to POF for the ability to search and possibly meet that one special person, but find that with less activity on the forums, I tend to visit other sites more often.

Just wondering what other's experience has been?

Yes they do. And many of the regular posters are gone.
Most of the funny and the bright ones have jumped ship, and I miss them.
It is getting real boring, and there are less and less new posts.
All because there is no link in the front page?

Go to the help suggestions forum and complain. We keep complaining and saying we want the forum button back on the main page. I hope the Big Fish will listen if enough people say
POF isn't the same without it. In the mean time, just bookmark the page for the forum when you find it. http://forums.plentyoffish.com/ is in my bookmarks now.

It's been the 4th since anyone has posted.
The admins evil plan is obviously working!
I won't give up without a yawn!
Yawn!
Gosh - I feel better now.

The screen is different. Too big, need to page over

well, its not the forums!

last five ladies Ive shared with..Hmm, photos 10 yrs outdated and not going to update them, another fascinated with brain/behavior studies but not clear on the difference between neurology and neuroscience (big difference) /heavies who want friends first but if you dont fall in love or want to "put out" theyre angry and become mean..(what if the man does this, and the woman naivley wants freindship and when she doesnt care to make out he gets hostile) a traveling porn show lady who wont say who or where she is but mails nasty photos to you (I think shes a serial criminal of some sort, or else mentally disabled)

There are good ones, but by and large its a mess on here..Just the same as craiglist and frankly our country is a mess, in general. Skill levels and literacy are shot, trust is bankrupt...The leaders in journalism are asking, is America truly a failed experiment at this point?

So hey, the leading topic ever on the forums is which is better T or A, and its not just the forums.

Anyone else about ready to go join the coyotes? Let me know..But Im not sure theyre accepting applications for new members in their coyote packs at this time...

And their forums arent online..although Im sure they have them..

Oh yes I do visit less often and my stay is shorter.

Not sure what the reason for deleting the 'forum' tab, I wish I did however. I suppose it is some diabolical plan and not for the unwashed singles to know, it would only confuse us.

Yes the forums are slowly starting to die out, the quality diminishing, thoughtful interacting disappearing - oh well, you don't need to pay for the added band width with fewer posts and less users . I suppose Free just doesn't pay like it use too.

If America is "truly a failed experiment", why are so many people trying to get in?

A lot of people are just putting this address in their profile so everyone can find the forums.

I actually haven't stopped by the forums since the last time I got "spanked" by the mods...(still not sure exactly what it was for, but figured I was just wasting time in here anyway).
Tonight, I got bored and checked the link I have in Favorites to see if they were still here, as I just noticed there is no more link from the dating pages.

I realized I hadn't gotten any e-mails announcing get-togethers in Salem for a long, long time and was going to come see if there had been any - that's when I realized there is no more forum link.

So... I suppose my answer would be "Yes". Hidden forums make me visit less often.
I'm contemplating starting another late night coffee club for other bored people with nothing else to do. Probably not here though.

I am a bit puzzled. I thought that the forums had been discontinued because I could find no way to access them whatsoever, but then I did a google search for something unrelated and found that the forums are still here. What the heck is this all about?

"I actually haven't stopped by the forums since the last time I got "spanked" by the mods"

Hell, I lost my posting privelages for a week because I wrote about a pleasant date. I did not want to give any real info about the lady, so I made up a name for her. I still got booted for "giving contact info." Before that I got booted for several days because I had a valueable piece of electronic equipment that I did not need and was offering to give it away for free to anyone who wanted it. I lost my posting privelages for posting "spam."

so does anybody know (willing to say) why they did hide the forums??? my guess is they are trying to get rid of them, and just let them die out. because they have made some changes to the site to try to get more money. i would have thought that the forums would have been good for the site overall, but maybe they think it's taking too many people to watch them. i think internet dating has run its course for whatever that actually waaaasss

Better question is WHY are you posting in a forum that you are not allowed to and WHY did you not simply use the search tool to read the answer?

Best GUESS is the contoversial subjects in our forums were a problem for the POF dating sites and how it would effect google searches. So the dating site had to seperate istself from the forums.
