Nice work on the new page POF worker bees (keep ALL posts regarding new page formats HERE)Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

Bring back the old format at ONCE!! Cast this God-forsakken new format back into the lair from which it came!!!


Lol. Do you think Markus will listen to your demands? This new format is still under construction for some applications, as Markus stated at Msg # 40.

Many of us have said its too bright (including myself), so lets just see what happens.

Site is looking great. Alignment issues have been corrected and I like the more modern look.

Markus could give every option that everyone wants, wash every members car and send each one 50 bucks, and you would still have people pissing and moaning. Its no wonder the man barely partakes in these forums.

sorry, the new site is even worse than before. it does look slightly more professional, but navigation is still dire and the consistency across the site is dreadful. and i really, really don't like the new way the inbox looks with the colours - it's a bit difficult to see which messages are new.
this is all really putting me off using the site. sorry.

Basically, I like the new format......but I think the profiles are more difficult to read. I wish the print was bolder or bigger.

i'm partially colourblind so it's almost impossible for me to see.

something simple like making the subject heading bold would make a world of difference for me, because going by colour alone is very difficult.

I did notice the alignment issues were corrected, and I have to give Markus credit where it's due. THANKS Markus!! My eyes are grateful!

I didn't have any issue with the color, I think it's just fine (mainly because my favorite color is blue to begin with). But I CAN see where others would have that problem.

What would be nice is if people could choose what color(s) they wanted their profile to be. I don't think it'd be a bad idea.

I've just noticed new messages don't have the blinding yellow background any more. They're brought to your attention by an envelope. Much easier on the eyes. :)

Not sure that yellow was blinding. It's not like you're going to sit there and have a staring contest with it and burn your retina out


LOL, thats true, but I guess it depends on our individual screen brightness. Many of us have said the new page layouts are too bright in general, so many of us have burning retinas.

And, yes, the profile page is very stark. Maybe the white background could be changed to a soft beige instead. Blue for the sea, beige for the sand............

Pleas excuse me if this has already been mentioned, but on the old site design, under the sent message menu item, there where links to check out your contact history - first contacts by others to you and first contacts from you to others. Now with the new look, this facility has disapeared, anybody any idea where it is now?

One thing that seems to be missing, or maybe I just can not find it.

Is when someone does not have photos posted, I do not see the area that indicates if they have private ones or not.

The site looks slightly more modern then before but it's still obvious that the code being used is ancient. If you want to update it you should head to the source not just cosmetics.

Regardless, I'll play along (I'm using Firefox):
-text is too small in profiles and is difficult to read now
-in written portion of profiles (about me, first date) there isn't spacing between the headers and actual body of text, but with other headers the spacing is correct.
-floating picture thumbs (mouse-overs) are not constrained by screen edges. meaning that if I mouse-over a picture on the right portion of a profile it will clip off the right side of my monitor.
-My City and New Users searches do not have a 'next page' button. This was a problem before as well though.
-In 'hottest girls' the notification for "Chat" is left justified. The notification for "Online now" is right justified... it looks silly, should all be centered.
-In 'Viewed me" the boxes for users without pictures do not have a consistent size. In cases where two of them are beside each other there is no spacing between them.
-On many pages there is no left margin for some text or pictures. Ex: "The following single row of users..." in the viewed me section.
-Users are able to break the formatting in the search field by having a very long word in the beginning portion of their profile. I'd link an example but we aren't allowed to link profiles... so just try making the first word in your profile something like "HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII" and then search for yourself... Your picture and writeup will be forced to the left of the screen.
-Also, if you have to re-log in after typing a message to send it the message is no longer there once you log in again. You'd have to write it again from scratch. (pro-tip: always ctrl-c before hitting "post")
-When sending someone a message the 'profile recap' type section has no left margin, neither does the gift section.


That's all I've noticed so far. Fix up those and do something about making text on profiles easier to read and I'd say it was a good cosmetic improvement

Now that the outdated cosmetics have been dealt with you can hopefully move on to implementing some great new features?? :D

Please fix it or bring back the old format. This format DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY on my iPhone which is the only place I use it. There are delays between each character I type often causing me to make mistakes. Also there are delays everytime I zoom in and out, while it reloads the surrounding mages. Sometimes I have to repeatedly hit the same pic numerous times for it to load as tthe bigger size. None of this used to happen before the change to the new format and it has made the site cometely frustrating to use! POF used to be the most easy to navigate Dating site. Now even checking email has become a chore. HELP!

I notice the banner no longer says "Free Online Dating" (except for here on the forums page). I wonder if THAT was on purpose, and if it is an indication that pof will become a pay-for-user site?

Hi, just to say i like the new format .... shame about the smileys though ...

one thing that does bug me is this IM thing.. when you are writing a message, what you are typing seems to stick while the page refreshes .. is there anywhere you can turn this refresh thing off ?
I run on windows 7 and use Firefox 4.1

thank you...

I don't mind the things like larger pictures or font size, I can adjust those... what I want to know is why were some of the Advanced Search features removed?

I do not know why this has happened, but ever since the new site went in, you can not search under the advanced search feature - European in the Ethnicity settings.

I use this feature 101% of the time.... why was it disabled? Can we put it back..... please?

I will also add that when adding a topic on the forums...if the topic has been discussed before, it does not tell you... the screen just goes blank... that's very confusing. Perhaps a one line of explanation would be good?

Thanks.
