Wow. I guess that's a shame.

I started on this site only because it was free. I'm so tired of the typical online dating where you pay to be blown off. Even on PAY sites you can see who viewed you.

I have to rethink this site.

"...we are the largest 100% free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate."

LIARS

CHANGE YOUR SLOGAN!

Brilliant move. I will never pay your company a dime, or a penny. Out of pure principle. We were all fine with the advertizements on these pages. With the MILLIONS of people you had using your site, you had millions seeing the ads.

OK Cupid or Book of Matches or even Match is where I will seek my soulmate. Not here. And I will NEVER direct any new people to your site again.

Losers.

Change your slogan.

Definitely not in favour of this change.
I've been sending and receiving less messages, and am probably going to stop using the site altogether

Wow. Seriously? Are you people (POF) completely brain dead??

The *ONLY* attractive part about this site is that it USED to be free. First you spammed it with filthy ads of "fat people need love too," then spammed it with other pay dating sites, then took away the time/date stamp on when your message was read, now you've taken away seeing who viewed your profile?

Swim upstream in a river of D, I'm not paying for ANY of this shit. I hope this site goes under because of this.

The more I think about it the more I have a serious question. What is the point of "leave all comments here" in a section titled "site suggestions" when you're (POF) never going to give two flying turds what the users think?

Greed gets the best of people and usually bites them in the ass in the end.




The point is, if you feel compelled to rant, it can be done in ONE thread instead of posting another redundant thread in the forums. That being said, although admin has yet to comment on this thread, I disagree with your opinion that he doesn't care about your opinion. He just might not agree with it. Who knows.

Bad move in my opinion but I don't run the company. It seems like all the ads are for other dating sites.

I like the viewed me feature because I can see if there are mutual interests. I may look at someone's profile and be somewhat interested but that person may not feel the same way. So by removing this free feature I will have to send a free (at this time) e-mail to let the person know that I am attracted to them.

Maybe the big fish will read some of the comments and act on it before we see them hanging on the big fish hook that someone has scooped up the market.

Just my 2 cents.

Pay to see how many guys need soap and water? Pay to see that the 1980's keeps calling and calling looking for mullets? No thanks, but hey maybe I'll get my appetite back.....................................always look on the bright side of life!

This is a deal breaker. Paid sites already exist and if that's what we were looking for, we would have signed up for them. Signing up for a free site meant that we were prepared to deal with ads to keep the site running. I will be deleting my account within a week if this is not restored as a free feature.

I have been a member of this site for going on 6 years. I used to post
in the forums regularly but when Big Fish took the forums link
down they became very stale and boring, so my attention wandered...

Interestingly enough, in 6 years I have never dated anyone I met from
POF. In recent months I have stopped logging into the site regularly
(I used to log in multiple times/day, now it's more like once a month).
As the site changes and more features go to pay-per-use I imagine my
visits will become less and less, until Big Fish starts charging just to
log in
.

See, I remember when this truly was a 100% FREE site. I feel no compulsion
to start paying for features that clearly haven't led me to meet Mr. Right...
or even Mr. Right Now.

Talk about a bad investment...

It's about time you brought back the "Viewed Me" as a FREE feature!

VIEWED ME - NOW A PAY ONLY FEATURE!

"Remember that we are the largest 100% free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate."

Haha! Well, sort of! (I think that's called "puffing" in marketing, and is actually legal!)

Not much reason to come around here much anymore now! Although I met some nice ladies through the past year or so, the matches never seemed to actually match much of anything about my tastes, lifestyle or personality. It was interesting while it lasted.

Funny, I was playing a board game called LOGO the other day, and wondering what ever happened to all these brands and products that were such icons of their era, but younger people have never even heard of - L'eggs, STP, Chiffon, Libby's, PanAm, Gulf Oil, Cracker Jacks, Dippity-Do, Brill Cream, Foster-Grant, English Leather, British Sterling, and further back - Buster Brown, Marx Toys, Duncan Yoyos, Whammo, Matchbox, etc. Sure, times change and brands come and go in our lives, but some brands were so ingrained in our hearts and minds that we might have thought these brands would live forever! The Jolly Green Giant, ferchristsake!

But I wonder how many of the these much-loved iconic faves faded due to a simple misstep or poor decision made in their corporate life? And such is my opinion of the newly added pay-to-play features on this site. Fame and popularity can be so fleeting in branding and pop-culture, just ask internet giant MySpace. (it was the number one social networking site in the mid to late 2000s, if you've never heard of it!)

So, as the dolphins lamented in the Hitchhiker's Guide trilogy, "So long, and thanks for all the fish!"

It a friggin view me !!!!!!!!!!! how on gods green earth does this make two hoots of a difference?

Wouldn’t adding someone to their favourites be a more overt signal than some silly viewed me?

Someone saw a tiny pixelated thumbnail, was curious, viewed your profile, and it’s an automatic assumed interest? What kind of logic is this?

Half the women have it turned off just because they don’t want guys emailing them because they viewed the profile

The other half don’t even know it exists.

Stop and actually smell the roses on the view me feature!

People are just clicking away on thumbnails cuz maybe the person is so small in the pic they can’t tell – so they click.

Some people see a face and then see a zeppelin or a bag of bones in the other pics or whatever else in the written part and run like hell.

How about stop the games and actually email instead of sittin thee viewing pics and playing mind games – your all gonna sit there and rot.

Email , its free for gods sake

What a bunch of lame arguments to cut of your noses to spite your faces faces

Would you guys all like it to be reversed – have the view me come back, and pay to email? – of course that would be much better wouldn’t it cuz a view me would then gurantee a reply and it would be ok to spend a buck on an email

Unfriggin believable

If I wanted a pay site, it definately wouldn't be here. The reason'the majority of the people are on here is because it's free. If I wanted a pay site,'I would go to match.

Alright, gonna add my post to the massive thread here suggesting that viewed me comes back to being free. If you want happy customers don't take things away from them, give them the option to buy new things. Honestly markus, we get that you are too lazy to actually work and create new features for this site... but come on, any effort at all would be appreciated.

well said Mo

Over 1400 people say this sucks, most are not commenting.
I would like to delete my profile but I think that if POF wakes up and reads what we all think about this, he might change his mind and bring it back.
I will just hide my profile for the time being, see what happens in a months time.

I thought this site was in reaction to all the paid sites out there. That you shouldn't have to pay to find someone. I am saddened to see how a lot of the features on the site are now only be offered to paid subscribers. Frankly the advertisements have never bothered me on the site. I think you should restore the Viewed me section as a unpaid feature it was a great icebreaker for a new connection.
