That post was in response to furtherseemsforever's rant about those of us who choose to seek casual encounters on pof

Everyone go edit your profile/mail options to 'NO' on allowing a member to see who'd viewed them....that way even if they're a paid member, they are screwed too!

this is getting rediculous now i cant even view who looked at my profile now as a member in a small town that is a good way to see what extra women are around whos willing to have a ld relationship and making it an upgraded feature seems like another step to making this another paid dating site. By doing this you will increase the members you already have to join a paid site with more intresting features. Please dont forget that this is the largest freebdating site emphasize free cause when you guys decide to make changes like this your putting yourself in the ring with premium dating sites that have a much larger base of people to meet, might as well start using fb to meet people.

So much for "free." Another regular feature removed. To be honest, the "ads' they want to remove have the sexiest women.

There were things Markus did in the past that I didn't agree with, but this one is a definite yes.


So as far as you're concerned, removing this feature increased the value of the site experience?

If you didn't like the feature you didn't have to use it.

Seriously POF?! I am fairly certain POF makes the bulk of their money off the ads! They are NEVER going to eliminate the ads.

Wow, this thread is growing at a great rate. I see only three people were true to their word and deleted their account, all the rest are just full of crap.

I agree, just another case of the greeds.

I clicked in the viewed me section this morning and for the first time seen someone that I would actually think about messaging, and when I clicked back a minute later, I have to pay. Oh well I am only here for the forums, when I have to pay for that I am gone from "Plenty of Fees".

I am fully aware I am unattractive or desireble which has been reenforced by my lack of success when actually trying to use this site as a dating site when first signing on. I do how ever enjoy the forums.

Why would I pay for a site which is notorious for the woman not responding, woman just feeding their ego's. My new matches are always hideous. I doubt any of this will change if I pay, and if they did, that would make hin a Pimp.

I will not leave until the forums are held for ransom as well. So if any of my Forum buddy's want to stay in contact with me after the fall, send me a message and I will give you my email before it is to late.

Fully agree, I reckon there will be a number of defectors

I never have a problem with Ads, not sure if the POF guys think this will attract more users, I just see it having the opposite effect

Oh well, I guess thats business!

eVow is an offshoot of POF.....for people who are looking for serious/LTR/marriage. That is still all free. Wonder how long it will take before Markus changes all that? Then again, its nowhere as large as POF, so he will keep it free until the numbers rise and he can do his gouging then. and DateHookUp are all free.

If you don't want to swim with the Markus the Shark go to the aboved mentioned.

Buh bye POF. Already had problems with messages getting through and the chat crashing. Its a good thing. This place is ridiculous. One normal person in 500. Good luck with that.

Markus,

I strongly suggest that you return to your roots with this site, or I, and I'm sure many tens of thousands of your members will be leaving.
SOON, very SOON...

If I wanted to be on a pay site, I would've joined one.

Rushluv = Moron..


And "moron" is equivalent to imbecile, correct? Which one are you?

I didn't use it. I stopped looking at the "Viewed Me" option a long time ago.

Just a useless feature with no point, in my opinion.

There are a number of Free sites that were nipping at POF's heals like . This move will only push people onto them, the only thing that was slowing their growth was population and I think POF may have just solved their problem.

I actually agree with a previous post, I'm glad this feature is gone (for free)....it always seemed a little stalkerish to me, anyway. And sure...you could turn that feature on or off before in your browser whether you wanted someone to see that you viewed their profile. What was annoying is that it had no effect in the mobile app...no matter what you're setting was they'd still see that you viewed them in the mobile app. The general inconsistencies with the site are what bug me. I seriously wouldn't mind being a "seriously stupid member" if membership upgrade offered NEW enhancements....not the being charged for old (formerly free) features. Oh, and the rates for the upgrade are atrocious...I mean...how do I plan that? How do I know that I'll need the site for 3 months...6 months....a year? IMO, there should be an option for a month to month....but I really can't see paying more than $5 a month for this site, no matter what the "features."

What's next. Charge us to see our favorites. If we can't see who is interested in us why bother coming back at all. Bad enough things like IM don't work half the time. Just like other site don't fix whats broke but make them pay for the only things that work!! Can't advertise as a free site anymore you have joinded the rest of the dating site!!
