I totally agree! That was one of many great things with POF. You can message free and see who has viewed you. Now if you can't remember the person and haven't messaged them you can't find them! Did you ever ask the members if we minded advertising? Obviously we don't since we are still on the site!

Favourite feature - only reason I use this site over other sites. This site is pretty bad as it is and just getting worse. Will be leaving if this isn't put back.

Hopefully more people complain. Or I'll just start adding everyone to "favourites" - which creeps people out. Thanks for creating more creepers. hah

Put more ads! I don't care, don't take away handy features like this.

Removing the option to see if an email was read or not actually I didn't mind, that way people don't rage at you if you read their email and didn't respond.

Pretty soon there will be nothing left of this site, then someone will make a similar site and this'll go under. It's on its way already.

The simple solution is this. Don't anybody upgrade. That will result in $0 and the ads that he wants to take away in favor of this will bring in more than $0. And don't login anymore/as much. When membership goes down, ad rates go down, advertising dollars go down etc. An obviously stupid move on the part of this site. You don't take away what grew this site because you want to squeeze a few extra dollars out of the site. The owner should take a better long term look at this, long term it does nothing but damage. Not only in dollars but reputation as well.

We've been watching this nickle-and-dime nonsense and bad feature decisions from Marcus for a couple of years now. Nothing we couldn't live without or deal with, but making Viewed Me a paid function was a truly major boneheaded move. I won't waste the space or time explaining why. He knows and doesn't care...as usual.

Bottom line is there are "Plenty Of" other free dating sites out there that are better compiled, better run, purge their user base of inactive profiles etc, and are free. We've all found them and will continue to find them. This is just another in a long line of reasons to move to those other sites and away from POF while Marcus decides on the next feature to charge for (anyone want to lay odds on reading and/or writing messages?).

That was one of the main reasons I joined POF in the first place, because of the fact that in the beginning PoF was so appealing was BECAUSE of the "free" stuff. Some people cannot afford to "pay" like on the other sites.... I knew it was too good to be true. I don't mind the ads at all if it means keeping the site free!
I'm sure that is why so very many people joined in the first place, because it was suppose to be FREE, now they are taking the "viewed me" part away also??? come on PoF, you are turning into match.com, singlesnet.com, and all of the others..... geez, give me a break!!!

Well I guess it is safe to say that Plenty of Fish is one of those companies that did NOT learn from the mistakes of NETFLIX!!! Netflix tried to pull the same bullshit in an effort to make money and guess what happened... their stock PLUMETED within HOURS of the increase, and they lost over a million subscribers seemingly overnight!! POF, you should seriously take notes from the Netflix playbook and reevaluate this move!!

This is just a way for the owners of POF to cut their overhead so they wont have to pay people sell advertising for the site. In the end it will be them loosing out by having users go to another dating site because they are annoyed with all of the new restrictions.

Well, so long POF, u lost me as a member. You cheap asses should've left the ads... And GREED alone. Everyone I've talked to from here on a daily basis, by text, email, telephone are all agreeing that they are also activating their accounts. Nice job fools!

It's very interesting that new fees are being applied but yet the heading above the forum pages says "Remember that we are the largest 100% free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate." What a bunch of BS... never got anything from this site anyway so charge whatever you want ...I won't pay because I'm removing my profile. What fees will be next? Pay to send messages?

This was at the very top of the threads..."Remember that we are the largest 100% free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate."

What a load of BS- I loved this site because it WAS 100% free. Now Mr. Marcus wants to charge us for just about everything. I would like to see his defintion of 100% free!!

If this continues, count me out of POF. If I have to pay I might as well get a real membership. Just about ready to "POOF" POF...

Thanks for ruining a perfectly good thing!

Screw this place, I'm not going to bother with petitions or complaining. I'll just be deleting my account today. There's other free sites out there. Good job on becoming the netflix of online dating. lol

All I can say is I'm TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED with POF. This has always been the BEST FREE site around. I have recommended sooo many people here. I hope Markus smartens up before it's too late.

are all agreeing that they are also deactivating their accounts.


Thing is, so many people SAY they will after each new change but they often don't.

I don;t want to sound mean but perhaps POF doesn't care. I'm sure it gets hundreds of new members every day, world wide.

Viewed Me or seeing who's read my mail means nothing to me. If they like me, they'll write. Same goes for Meet Me. If they like me, they'll write.

he wants to charge for an addon? how can it be an addon if it was already included with the registration? plus now you don't have the list of who you viewed so you can't go back to see someone you viewed to maybe message, especially if they don't normally show up in your parameters. i think most will learn to live without it. he's not getting d..., i mean a dime from me! lol
