Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

just another flakey messenger.
a friend accepted a request then nothing, she then called me on msn cos the pof chat wasn't workin.
i have problems between yahoo(me) and msn (them) where messages sent evaporate before arriving so not just your app.
here's a suggestion for you.
why not put a chat link under a posters name for the forums? you don't allow chat on threads, this would allow private requests for clarifications etc.
also a pm link not effected by a forumites normal mail restrictions, nor flagged as dubious due to a posters looking for.
it seems silly to me that you can be prevented from privately messaging a forumite, of course it will be abused but there's always block?
why not flagged? well i've sent a thread related joke message to a forumite before, only later did i see they had other relationship,
not something i was thinking of since it was forum related not dating related.

don't seem to be able to view the user's profile before accepting the chat message - like to know who I'm talking to!

Why not go the whole hog and display the guys most important information down one side?

Job Title =
Income Level =
Car Owned =
Height (display only if income < 80k a year) =

That should just about cover it :p



Seriously though, i'd be surprised if it were not possible to view the persons profile!!
