I noticed this is the 2nd time my profile pic has been removed. This time I believe it's because I am wearing a hat. If this is the case I think it's a little biased as I have been contacted by several men who are wearing caps including hats that cover their forehead and eyes. If needed I can likely give you the name of @ least one of these men. Their hair is also covered and although they have listed they have a certain colour of hair...they are currently bald. I guess I am cocenred that I have taken the plunge to show a "portion" of me although I may be attached to be told I can't put that pic on POF. I guess I will just need to post "I'm sorry to the men of POF" that although I want to visually show some of my personality I'm not able to comply. Thanks for any clarification you can provide.

Are we allowed to report pics that are non-compliant if the user is a VIP or Serious
Member? Do they have immunity? Also, I wanted to report a few Serious members for
spam content in their profiles. Will Admin still take action on a paid member's profile?
Thanks for any clarifiaction on this.

One of the pics is me outside with a tree and the other a head shot of me watching a game .. and I am FULLY clothed in both .. not really sure what to do. I have searched through posts to find an answer and I even sent an email.... still no luck.. I appreciate any help that anyone can give..

I've just been reviewing the new pics and doing the ol' rejection/approve motions BUT.. I came across a pic of a torso going down to an erect penis ... I rejected it of course , but my question is - do admin see this pic that's been rejected and take action ? There's no way to report this user via the method I was using.

When you try to upload images all you see are these guidelines.



Cartoons, celebrity, Torso and Joke pictures are not allowed.
Make sure the image is in JPG, BMP or GIF format.
You can share these private pictures with other members when sending them a message.
You can now edit your thumbnails, if they are distorted!
More help for Add / Change / Delete Images Allow others to rate your image
Serious Users can upload 16 images instead of the normal 8.
ALL pictures MUST contain you in it with a visible head shot at minimum



If there are so many other ambiguous criteria as detailed throughout this thread and referred to on others would it not be a good idea to make the uploading instructions far more specific to avoid confusion?

^^^^ Are you speaking of you current main pic? If so, it must be a glitch b/c that's a good head shot and certainly acceptable.

UPLOADING NUDITY WILL GET YOUR ACCOUNT DELETED
You can upload up to 8 images, you may keep these images hidden from other members by selecting not to display them on your profile.


My uploading priveledges were suspended a while back because of exactly this reason. I posted a couple private pics that weren't "nudity" (hell even the US Gvt and UN can't define that) they were artsy pics in the vein of 1950-60's playboy pics, that showed NO GENETALIA nor were they Sexually explicit...yet my accnt was nuked for the exact quoted reason as given by you.

I realize you are the dictator of your own site but seems if youre going to police every pic someone puts up...you can at least spend the extra 2-3 seconds to email the offender a warning...some people do not understand you intentions when they are unclearly communicated. It seems it would make for a friendlier site and a less hostile workplace for the person dealing with the feedback.

I apologized...asked to be allowed posting priv again...and that takes a month and still no answer. Close 1 eye in a pic and instant nukedom???Let's be a LITTLE more fair...please?

It seems the angle of the shot of me in a suit was unacceptable. How do I get a new better shot onto my profile when I have no browse button available?

What I don't understand is why a photo without a clear face isn't okay, but no photo at all is okay... *scratches head* lol Strange logic in that, I think.

I mean, sure, a photo with someone's face clearly seen makes it more comfortable to talk to someone, but at the same time... who knows if the photo is actually that person or not?

It isn't strange if you are aware that there is a filter that blocks people without photos. Using an unrecognizable photo of yourself or just one of a cat, dog or sunset will circumvent that filter. The idea is that if you are going to post a photo on primarily a dating site it should be pictures of you, no one is going to date your cat, the sunset out your window, your truck or that dead fish you caught last week.

There is a report button for people that use fake/celebrity, altered or unrecognizable photos. If you see Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Jessica Alba or Brittney Spears report them.
Some I have reported were Nicole Ritchie, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Fred MacMurray, Ernie Els, David Beckham, Daniel Radcliffe, Ronald McDonald, Jason Voorheese, the Creature From the Black Lagoon and a few perfume models.

Those with no photos can only contact or be contacted by others that don't care about it, though it may hinder their chances a bit, but they have the option to not post one for whatever reason. You have the option to not "buy" any reason and pre-block them.

It's somewhat of an honor system as well as a community watch.

A while ago I had my Main Photo removed. I have since replaced it with a more appropriate shot and added the first and a few others to my profile. While I understand why some were removed, I do not understand why, if I have already posted two perfectly acceptable head shots, my original pic has been removed again, twice. Has it been reported by users, or removed by admin?

There is nothing hidden I have not already displayed for public view. Since my entire head and face are visible in the 2 current pics, the shot showing off my creativity and an even more clear and closer view of my face, as dramatic as it is, should be allowed in the 3rd position. It is perfectly logical, because, if you read my profile, you see the visual arts are my main focus [p.i.]. I have worked everything from weddings to Hollywood features. I would like my talent and spirit to be displayed as well as my face. This is why I combined the two in one image. I am proud of the result.

Two other singles sites have no problem with me using the image as my Main Photo. I've been told it is sexy, mysterious and conveys my intelligence. I will post it one more time so you can make a determination. If it is removed again, I feel this site may not suit my needs and I may delete my profile altogether. I prefer not to go that way.......

I've switched the main photo to one with my eyes visible.

Photos are here so people can see WHO WE ARE. My creative side is part of who I am, and again, it is why I combined the face and art. I disagree with the notion that this is what my "fellow members" want. When perhaps only a few, or even just one, disapprove, it is not indicative of the group as a whole. I do not display myself to be judged by those who would not be interested in me anyway. I post in hopes of attracting someone who would be interested. Anyone who reports such, let's be realistic here, non-offensive photos, would not be anyone I would consider dating or contacting anyway, and their opinion is of no consequence to me.

I agree; nudity, obscene gestures, racist symbols and other socially offensive pics should not be posted on this site, nor should celeb or any pic not of, or including yourself [though I've seen plenty of pet-only shots, so why not just my car?].

If a face were completely obscured or distorted beyond the point of recognition, by all means, remove it. As long as one's Main Photo satisfies the strict guidelines, there's really no good reason extreme close-ups with partial faces or glasses or minimal effects should be disallowed as additional profile shots.

I'll be working on replacing my photos with more acceptable one's in the very near future.......

The very good reason is simple. IT IS THE RULES OF THIS SITE, that all photos must include a clear and recognizanble head shot of YOU

I saw a mention of allowing animals or the like as 3rd or 4th photo - I hope that means as one of 4 or 5, because we don't control what order our photos appear in save for the main one. And they seem to shuffle randomly when one
is added or deleted.

IMPORTANT QUESTION: When I rated only women's photos, I harldy ever ran into problems. Then, as away of comparing the male/female ratio, I tried rating both (getting about 60 male photos to each female) and was astonished by the quantity of gross crotch shots and torso flashes. So I try to do the good thing and make PoF better, while striving to not be too picky because of precisely the sort of tales of woe we see here - and having one of my own images inexplicably removed after serving for years. (Full face, both eyes, clearly the same person as my 6 others but with dark contact lenses.)

SO - sometimes I hit the wrong button, or the screen image moves because it wasn't fully loaded, or I see too late that what I thought was a nice photo has a Naughty Bit in it, or no shirt despite being only a bit of shoulder visible..

CAN WE CORRECT OUR VOTE?

The browser "back" button DOES take me back and let me vote again, but I don't know how the site treats this. Does it count both votes? Does it reject the second one as a dupe? Or does it do what I think the best thing, which is to allow the sober second thought (a Canadian tradition) to replace the first vote?

I do want to help filter out the phalluses, dog genitals, album covers and solarized mysteries, but I feel terrible thinking I could be causing nastygrams and suspensions for innocent viewers, particularly newbies. I know it's tempting to have one photo showing oneself doing something one loves, even if one's face is hard to see, in a row of six to eight shots.

1 Vote, you can't change it, tied to your User ID. You can't vote again and have it registered, otherwise 1 single Person could vote off any User's Pic. Further, it would unnecessarily tax Resources and subject the Database to Corruption.

SO - sometimes I hit the wrong button, or the screen image moves because it wasn't fully loaded, or I see too late that what I thought was a nice photo has a Naughty Bit in it, or no shirt despite being only a bit of shoulder visible.

That's why it takes far more than 1 Vote to approve/remove a User's Pic.

Just go at it a little slower.
