Live POF Chat RoomPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
I finally figured out what I think is missing here - live chat rooms. I think that it would help and encourage users to communicate with one another more freely and easily.

Just a suggestion, what's everyone's thought on this?

Wouldn't be that hard to do in application. The only thing is making it available to users and having them adopt it as a method of communication. That which, with my experience, is severely hard to do.

Agreed. I try and try, and Im lucky if, when I send a note to 10 women, to get 1 response.

I feel ya on that one. If I had a dime for every time I get blown off, ignored or not responded to I'd be able to support myself just coming here. Something about my profile/pictures that apparently repulses women. You aren't alone with this.

Any IRC platform would be perfect. I could start a chat server right now in 10 minutes for this site.

I don't think it's you. I've spoken with a few women I've known that were on dating sites or I just asked the ones that responded. We're all facing two problems:

Volume - You're not the only trying to communicate with a specific woman. The pretty ones will get hundreds of messages they have to wade through. There is a lot of noise.

Mistrust - Even the ones that aren't so pretty and thin get a lot of sexual propositions immediately. Or, they get to the point where the meet a guy in person and they get propositioned immediately. Most of them don't want that. So they get very cynical and mistrustful and won't bother to respond at all.

So we're all fighting at getting our voices heard above these two issues.

I agree totally on what you are saying. Additionally, I am thinking that some are not who they are making iut they are. Basically made up totally, photos, profile everything. Anyone else experiencing this??

IM was always flaky and was binned several years ago.
I doubt it will return anytime soon.

I joined here in 2008. Prior to my joining they did have chat rooms but I don't know what that was like.
However, they did have IM called Userplane. It was kinda fun and you could see each other if you wanted like you can on Skype. Userplane was completely separate from POF......a different company.

Anyway, when it went, people complained and asked why. Maybe the company went out of business, maybe Markus had had enough of it, maybe it wasn't viable enough to keep rolling in revenue for POF. Don't know.

Make a skype group and have POF in the name? Advertise it on here because nobody moderates this place.

Having experienced live chat room, I think it would work well on the POF platform, and it gives you that more personal touch. I'm all for it, but I doubt it will happen. Just saying.

POF used to have a live chat room where everyone talked with everyone. It was pretty cool.
I wonder what happened to that?
Anyone?
