My understanding is that without a custom subject line, there is absolutely no way to distinguish a given message from the 50 to 100 spam messages woman receives upon setting up an account on POF within day 1 to 2....

Some girls may get a ton of messages but they are all from guys like you and me, who are interested in her and thing we may have a shot and not spam.

So now she "must" open them to see what is inside, where before she may read some cheesy subject line and just delete on the spot.

Sounds like it means that you now have a better chance of getting your message read.

That said, she could still look at our profiles and not even bother and a clever subject line will never change that.

no subject = no responses

As of today, the default subject line (which can no longer be changed by the user) is still being displayed with messages sent via browser GUI. Android app sends default subject of 'Hi'.

This seems like an issue affecting a large majority of users. Is the grand high site developer addressing this? From a user's perspective, it sure doesn't seem like it.

Maybe have threaded messaging tested and running before eliminating legacy functions?!?!

This is one of the reasons I have decided to not join POF as a paying member, over the years when things get changed, there seems to be little to no public side testing of the changes, they just flip the switch and hold on for the ride. I can obviously get this kind of effect for free, I'm surely not going to pay for a service that may become unappealing, unstable or borderline unusable with no notice.
IMO, it would be better to have users allowed to opt-in for major changes as a testing group versus just making the change and being silent when the changes don't go as planned.

why am i not able to go to my inbox for messages

Now that's an idea I've long wanted - have the e-mail notifications carry th subject line!

Of course, first we have to HAVE a subject line...

Perhaps Markus (the guy who does almost everything on the site by himself) is too busy because of the dead-soldier-picture lawsuit (photo continued to be shown, causing family grief). Give him a bit of time.

While I understand going to a different messaging format -- the one issue that remains unresolved is that my old "default" subject line for messages is still being placed on my outgoing messages, without giving me any facility to change it, either at time of message generation or in mail settings.

Please either NULL those fields from the database, or restore a link under settings to allow users to update that subject line. At least with this, we'd be ok until the different messaging format is fully deployed.

I tested this again tonight, and it's still happening -- I'm not sure if my recipient sees the subject line in inbox, but *I* see it when I view the message from my "sent messages" section.

Thank you for any mods you can make to address this issue...

Static messaging subject - need ability to change setting
Posted: 3/9/2012 7:27:09 PM
Sorry to double-post, but I noticed that when I go and view the message I sent tonight, it has, at the bottom, dialog fields to send another message -- and whaddyaknow -- the subject line can be changed on subsequent messages.

Not sure how it looks from the recipient end, still, but thought it worth mentioning here.

So It's been close to a year now, since they stopped allowing us to add a subject to our messages.........I wanted to know if they would ever consider adding that option back, since so many POF'ers seem to want it back.........any feedback to this question/addition?............
