Winks are now live and running.Page 2 of 18    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18)
Active at midnight? Siskel and Ebert say

OK, cool, so all I need to do is go to bed and leave FireFox running with my "Reload Every" extension active, right?!?!

The midnight thing - that seems pretty lame - not to mention unfair. What about people who work during that shift and can never login at that time? Or people, like me, who's alarms sound at 4:30 AM. You can be sure that earning points to wink are really high on my priority list!

Also, what's the point of winking when I can just send an icebreaker that says *wink* if I want to...

(I wish you had a "scratching head in utter bewilderment" emoticon!)

what it says is the if you log on to pof at any time during the day, that at midnight pacific time, youre points will be updated. this way all the members get updated at the same time instead of pof having to update points everytimg a member logs in at all times of the day. it says winks will be deleted after 30 days, but is there a way to delete them when you want to. also is there a limit to how many winks one can receive?

The winks are making me feel guilty.. :(

So just received some winks so I checked out the profiles and I'm not interested. So now I feel a little bad I guess because before it was "free" to sent a short message but now they, in a way, are spending something.

Also there isn't really an effort to send a wink. I like it when guys take the effort and time to actually write a message to me.

This will take awhile to get used to....

I'm thinking getting a wink will actually mean less than being on someone's favourites list ...which is often very little.

I noticed an online advertisement - right next to my primary photo.

Here is what the advertisement stated: "Is he going to kill you?" [Ad for a detective agency]


twowheels .....what's the big deal ? ...just explain to women in your profile that they shouldn't worry since it's not true , you wouldn't harm a fly ....I'm sure that they'll understand .

.................... is a rocket scientist - has already figure out the winks - sent one - got one ............ it is all good.

Oh and found out where the view profile went - like mentioned above - just push on the wink link and that window also gets you the view profile link.

Ok I am not a rocket scientist lol - but I am a killer at data bases and that is what web sites are - databases.

I've always hoped POF would get winks - it is just a little mild flirt. If the person winks back - it is like "ok to send me an email" - so this should help some that are extra shy - and help some that don't like sending an email and not getting a reply.

It is kind of like a smile out on the public. It actually is a different concept than an email is.

Thanks POF .......

If wishes were fishes we would all cast nets

If women were fishes we would all cast winks

If men were fishes we'd all have blow holes

You might not want to waste points like that... Points buy a hell of a lot more than winks ;)


so what else do they buy? Please explain...thanks

1. You start with 600 points and you can have up to 6,000 points at any one time.

You gain 60 points for every day you are active on the site. Points are updated at midnight PST.


Each wink costs 20 points. The more active you are the more winks you can send. Winks don't appear as email but instead look like a search.

http://www.plentyoffish.com/view_winks.aspx
So that's what the OP of this thread looks like, but there is not one word in it about:

1. WHERE ... to actually find out how many points one has.

2. HOW ... to send a wink.

3. WHAT ... a wink looks like.

WHAT'S THE POINT IN STARTING A NEW FEATURE (like with the "rose" thing) and not even bother to offer the information about basic details?

I can tell you right now ... it's sure not in the HELP section!!!!!!

I saw something when I went in to reply to someone's email ... at least there I was able to see how many points I have, but I still have to ask ... why is it all left up to "discovery" instead of actually creating a thread with all the information in it?

1. WHY would I send someone a wink if I have no clue what it looks like or what it says? Just like with the "rose" thing ... we had two "rose" things to send but there was no clue what it even looked like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What sense does it make to start new features and just leave us in the dark about it?

The only way I finally found out what the "rose" looked like was to send one to a good friend as a "let's try this and see what it looks like" ... there was nothing available to know exactly what it looked like until you actually sent one.

Then several days later I found out quite by accident that if you send one it means you are seriously involved with someone ... and if you view someone's profile that only has "one" rose left on it, it means they are involved with someone?

So what does this "WINK really look like?
Why would I bother to send such a thing to someone if I have no clue what it looks like?
