Well I'm curious about my ethinicty.

Am I a caucasian because I'm a cancer or because I have black hair.

OR

Am I a cancer because I'm a caucasian with black hair.

OR

Do I have black hair because I'm a white cancer

OR

Does the person who made these changes need a dictionary because they are totally oblivious as to what the word ethnicity means

Hmm.................i must admit i liked it way better before by listing all the information separately,
instead of lumping it all in together.....

So, a BIG thumbs down from me!

I find that this new layout does not enhance my viewing experience in the slightest.

Very poorly thought out; implementation, even more so.

Who knew hair colour and something as absurd as our astrological sign was part of our ethnicity?

Relax...relax...
Maybe the next step is to offer the original format for a small fee?
lol...


I'm not a fan of this change, but since I only hit the forums once in a while it won't affect my lack of dating.

My Biggest question about having a new format is:

Ok you're CHANGING the format to make it more streamlined, and yet, as before, you STILL have "Do you have childrean?" and "Do you want children?" seperated by a few lines of other totally non related info. If you're trying to streamline things wouldn't these two similar questions belong closer together? The layout really needs to be changed a bit, yes, but both the old style and the new style are definitely "wanting"

(and for many of the same reason posted by others I don't like the new profile much... needs to have a little more thought put in to it as it seems to be just lumped together...

Please please please go back to the original format! Separating things out allows a person to quickly scan for the information they are most interested in. Lumping them together makes things less clear and easy to use.

Thank you,

Sorry but it sucks!

It's harder to read this supposed streamlined at the top. It takes longer now.

Ethnicity includes the astrological sign? really? Hair color is part of Ethnicity? Come on.. please... If hair color is part of that - eye color should be too. Just as drinker should then be part of lifestyle.

The needs test and chemistry are filled out by few - they belong at the bottom, not at the top of that section. they need to be placed bck how they were. Certainly marital status is more important then do you drink.

Place do you want children and do you have children next to each other!

At first I though it was a page rendering error, too, and kept pressing ctrl+F5 on my keyboard to do a hard refresh. A few of those, and I realized that someone went playing with the formatting.

Frankly, it looks horribly unprofessional! My cat could've come up with something better, by just pawing at a keyboard.

This layout is an epic fail, hopefully it's just temporary and they have something better up their sleeve in due time.

Very disappointed. This is absolutely the worst change I have seen on this site and that says a LOT. Combined fields with no relevance to each other.

ZODIAC SIGN is ethnic? Body type is lifestyle? It makes the pages read horribly. Please tell me there is a way to correct this mess.

I think it would make more sense to group astrological sign with religion. It just makes no sense to have your sign grouped under ethnicity.

Streamlined and nonsensical aren't (or shouldn't be) synonymous

Was this change made immediately after the Christmas party ? Was there a free bar ?

I am not adverse to change - quite enjoy a bit of a shake up normally. But I'm not a fan of the changes. :-(

I agree with Ashton. The new format is awful and hard to read quickly.

I'll add my displeasure for the new format. It doesn't help the browsing experience (hence the only thing it accomplishes is confusion for its own sake); and clearly someone at POF doesn't know what the word 'ethnicity' means.

Agreed. I'd like to do away with astrological crap altogether (there's no "rather not say") but, at least, put it where it makes better sense. It should be with religion next to "unicorn worship" and "Jedis".

This is how it should be organized:

http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/5531/pofinfocategories.png

Not necessarily in this order, or with these actual category names, or anything like that. But they should be put together in a logical manner.

Basic Dating Site Info:
City
Gender
Age
Marital Status
Seeking (Gender)
Relationship Type (Hang Out/Long-Term/Dating/etc.)

Appearance:
Height
Body Type
Ethnicity (Black/Caucasian/European/etc.)
Hair Colour
Eye Colour

Spirituality:
Astrological Sign
Religion

Money/Make A Living/Get That Cheddar (I don't know what to call it):
Job/Profession
Education
Have a car?

Family:
Do you have kids?
Do you want kids?
Pets

Lifestyle/Vices:
Smoker
Drinker
Drugs


Just make some kind of sense. Having drinker down the page from smoker; eye colour in between drugs and children... There's no apparent rhyme or reason to it.
