You can now report a persons main picture if it doesn't meet guidelinesPage 35 of 38    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38)
It makes sense to be able to report some profiles, but it's too strict.

Pic of me snowboarding is my best side and is best way to show what kind of person I am. The girls I'm after are way more responsive to that than some boring head shot. And having it as main image is the only time I get eproached by serious hotties.

There is nothing fake in my profile and I'm not just goofing around.

If it doesn't, it should take atleast 10 reports before anything happens and you should be clearer what kind of douchery you're actually trying to stop. And tell them it's more of a judgement than a report, it's automatic, there's no moderator who will use common sense on the issue, they're responsible for that part.

I vote no to head shots only for the main image. Why have censorhip since there are so many modes of communication on this site? If you are offended than either speak your mind, ignore or have good laugh. Everyone's standards are different. I wish there was a feature, though, where you could delete the pictures in the "viewed me" screen, much like you can delete emails.


This is an internet dating site for humans, not pets, chimps, exotic wildlife, celebrities, uknown bodyparts, real estate, vehicles, or anything else that doesn't showcase yourself - should you choose not to accept these rules, try a pay site and see how far you get.

I've got a question, apologies if it has already been answered.

If a user has their entire head in the picture, but are covering half of their face with their hand, is it still a valid head shot showing their face?

It takes half a second to scroll past a profile that's not laid out in the way certain people want.

Removing my snowboarding pic cuts my reply ratio from around 3/4 to around 1/4.

How selfish do you have to be to think half a second is worth taking away more than half the girls I try to talk to?

Last night I was looking at the who viewed me thing, and ah ah ha ha the person's main profile was a penis picture ah ha ha ha ha ha it wasn't very big. I mean like wtf? Don't be that proud buddy we've all seen better pics. So anyways I went and reported it, cause I guess I'm no fun at all, and must be a prude.

Where is the link for reporting a picture and reviewing the profile for legitimacy?




Main Image is the button that looks like this

Bottom of their profile for everything else and looks like this:

I reported quite a few fake profiles and some that is actually not using there faces. Some replace there face with a HAPPY SMILE ICON over it. Like ........?

And still even today i get to see those same profiles sitting there and scamming legimate members.

Is POF actually do read the reports that people sent them? I usually would report them with 3 to 4 links of proof of the member using the stolen pictures or scamming others for trading pictures.

I dont know....maybe they are busy or not enough staff......but that should be one of their priorities is to take care of those scammers and fake profile luring around that as been reported with proof of evidence.

What about people who are seeking INTIMATE ENCOUNTERS but dont want anyone who has messaged persons seeking an INTIMATE ENCOUNTER or SEX to message them? I feel this should be abolished as it cuts many chances to message a person by the three strike rule. Many of these people have a different interpretation of whaat an INTIMATE ENCOUNTER is....it's not mearley sex.

^^^I agree for there is jealousy in all walks of life. Which is what I think is the matter in my case.
My photos keep being deleted and I now have received the note: main photo has been deleted and if I CONTINUE to upload images that don't follow the rules, my uploading abilities will be disabled.
My pic's are not breaking any rules and yet someone keeps voting to delete.
There has to be a bottom line and I feel at point of deletion (how many votes it takes) there should be a human to see if it's legit...
I have contacted csr@pof.com and hope they can get to the bottom of this situation.

So to whom ever is playing this game it's up.

Users can only vote to disallow a photo once. It takes numerous reports each by different users before pictures are deleted. So it's not just one person who is playing games.

Unfortunately for you the people that use this feature don't agree with you.

As someone that used it prior to being a moderator, I have to say I think it's the best thing since sliced bread.


It doesn't matter if users don't agree. That doesn't make them right.

We could be contacting these profiles for any number of reasons. It is a needless ban that restricts people from contacting certain others.

Let adults make their own choices. We contact people for all sorts of reasons, again. Just because their profile said 'intimate encounters' doesn't mean that's what we're contacting them for. Some people put 'dating' on their profile but we may hope that it turns into a long term relationship.

Let US decide for us.

That is exactly what is happening.

Adults can chose or not chose to block people that make a habit of emailing people with IE profiles.

The filter does not imply anything other than sending an email.

It states: "Must not have messaged users looking for intimate encounters or sex."

It is clear that the block is associated with the word message, thus it is only blocking people that email those, it does not imply why you emailed them.




Let US decide for us.

What you are implying is that you want to take away peoples ability to block, thus taking away their choice.

People have a choice of who they are going to contact and people also have a choice who they can block.

I have also had my main photo (which clearly shows my face) and does not violate any policy removed.

I received the same message that my uploading privileges would be removed and I contacted PoF several times (via the form on this site and directly to csr@pof) since the 6th. I have received nothing other than a canned response to my first message. This message did not address any of my specific concerns.

There is nothing to address and or they are not about to reveal all details on how the back end of the site works, to explain to a user why their picture got accidentally deleted.

Uh no... it is automatic after 4 messages that you get blocked.. and.. you're not in a position to know if someone is making it 'a habit' of contacting ie profiles.

Bingo! If the system can't detect intention, it shouldn't intervene.

People have a choice of who they are going to contact and people also have a choice who they can block.


Again your lack of logic is showing. No one's taking away your ability to block. You can block case by case.
But assuming that contacting someone who has ie on their profile means that's all you want, is ridiculous.

You could contact people for any number of reasons. I've sometimes just a paid a compliment to someone. Or said hi to a friend. I could also try to contact someone wanting a date, to possibly get to a long term relationship.

It would make more sense if your stated intention, on your profile was ie.
But if it's long term and you contact an ie, you still get blocked - after 4 messages-.

That's just stupid, it prevents you from communicating with people just because you sent a message to a certain type of profile.

Nobody's taking away a choice- a choice that makes sense. Just wanting to not be subjected to a needless intervention ....

First of all, a site users concerns is far from nothing to be addressed.

I am a potential customer that could very well pay for a membership But if I feel that my uploading privileges or profile itself will be disabled for uploading a photo that does not violate any policy can very wall happen for no reason. The thing I am looking for is not how it happens, but an assurance that my profile and photos are not at risk. This is my concern, and I know it is probably this way for others.

To be clear... Why would someone upgrade if they have no assurances that this was indeed a mistake, that this will not happen again in the future. No one will spend money on an unknown.

Plus, its just shitty customer service to not reply to inquires.

Because once they upgraded that then if they had a legitimate concern it would be addressed, because if it was not address the "user" would have legal recourse.




Plus, its just shitty customer service to not reply to inquires.

So do you know how many users there are and how big POF is from an employ stand count?

If you did you may understand why you are not going to get a personalized reply.

I have seen users post here that they cannot post photos because they have been banned and each time they were either told why, as to get banned it takes manual input and is not done by the automated system that sends out warnings, thus allowing for much less error, but if by chance an error did occur they could rectify it.

Have you considered asking for a refund?

You see, that is the very difference between how you and I think.

You run a business, that is dependent on users.

A user asks a question and you do have a support staff.

You as the business with a support staff answers questions.

This is how it works. I am not any more special than you or the next person. If you asked a question it should be answered. Period!

Since this lovely discussion is not accomplishing anything. I will just bow out. Just understand. that you are incorrect and I know more than you in this instance.
