Hi all,
Does anyone like the new chat? I like being able to see the pic on the original request but the graphics once you're inside is a nuisance. Also the chat request continuously flashing across the top is distracting.
Other thoughts?

Disable it.

I find that the only ones who want to chat are the perverts.

I've used the chat once, and well it royally failed with me when I used it...then again I'm used to different types of chat features rather than the one here.

The new one has had a lot of problems...of course me being a friendly person I tried helping others and got crap tossed at me for it. One person thanked me but I guess that's the one out of 50 that will.

Anyway to quit ranting, if they updated the chat so it goes quicker I'm all for it. Then again I also keep my computer updated to the point of insanity, since I haven't seen it yet I'll judge it when I see it and pop a message to someone.

As U make it entertaining said most of the people on the chat are only pervs who want to talk dirty to you, it's very rare that you get someone that will actually have a very good, logical or non logical convo with you, and/or intelligent and polite.

Mine doesn't seem to work. Only ones that try to chat with me are the younguns anyways.

Hmmm
I haven't really had the 'perv' experience. I had one guy want to show me his "little buddy" but after I suggested he try using a telescopic lens on his webcam he just disappeared. LOL . Overall my experience with the chat feature has been okay, the only downside really is that it's prone to crashing and I keep getting multiple chat requests.

I do not care for it...
I find it fails more times than none. They really need to fix it up.

I avoid all chats. My experience has been that guys want to chat without even viewing my profile. I'll pass.

Hmmm guess that's why i have not gotten any replies from many women on here! Avoiding all chat requests... It's a right we all have, using dating sites. At first i couldn't use the 'new' chat, because my computer OS was too old. Now it seems the software loads, i can type into the message area & send. but i still don't know if it is being received!!

I think the one ones that use the chat features are the very young... or the ones with no pic that seem to be looking for a hook up..

I'd say there are various reasons to use the chat feature. But i suppose the ladies on here know about their responses here, because they get ALOT of them. Guys from my end of it, don't get contacted by the ladies on here...

Well Delightful. I beg to differ, 9 times out 10 if I send a chat request they never get accepted.

Lizzn...we need to take a poll of the ladies on POF...to see what the odds are for chat requests made to men, that aren't answered! If only we could eliminate technical issues, to make it fair...

I think in your case M women don't respond because you don't have a pic. Whatever your reasoning is for not producing a pic. For most women it just means your either hiding something or someone. It just suggests untrustworthyness.

Just saying!!

Agreed...being in that position 'w/o' pic, does conjure many thoughts! I appreciate your view & help on the matter... . Not sure if a pic shows in the chat before it is accepted. That shows my experience with being contacted threw it....

New chat platform is better than the old hands down, although the new definitely has it's own issues.

Mine seems to not connect the odd time, meaning I get a chat request, accept it, then there's a little icon across the bottom that says connecting.. but it never does.
