Who would of thought???

Oh wait!!! Reading more than a post or two could have answered you question before even posting it. You know, like on the previous page where it is posted in BIG GIANT FONT:

how to contact POF
Posted: 1/11/2019 6:18:49 AM
In all my years on and off POF the only contact that has worked at all was to email to:
csr@pof.com

But that email address usually only returned a canned message. It was followed up a few times by a personal response but apparently even that does not happen either any longer.

POF is still 95%+ automated with relatively almost zero human input. Markus Frind ran it 100% without one single employee until 2008 when he opened an actual office and hired his first employee. Up until then he used to brag about making millions a month in advertisement revenue for POF with tens of millions of active members worldwide while only working from his home/apartment just a few hours a week.

There is just a small handful of people (reported as 86 the last time I looked) at the headquarters that are still in Vancouver, B.C. With a stated 2.6 Billion page views a month and a listed 135 Million registered users, the staff of less than 100 cannot possibly keep up with customer requests so they apparently choose to ignore the user requests for help or assistance.

Think about it for a moment. 135 million user names and 85 to 90 people in the office. How many of them do you think are in customer service? Three? Five? Fifteen? Let us say for the sake of argument it is twenty (more likely 3 to 5 at the most). Now let’s say 50% of the 135 Million are inactive. That leaves 67.5 Million people active worldwide. Let’s further say 80% English Speaking, 10% Spanish Speaking, 5% French, German, Italian Speaking, and 5% other for the remaining of the nine languages POF is available in. If three customer service reps, then each one needs to fluently speak, read, and write three languages. Maybe 20 customer service reps could cover that. Maybe. Just responding to emails that would be almost 23% of their staff for customer service. With POF’s history and reputation of total lack of actual customer service I highly doubt they would have more than three customer service reps. And they do not reply to requests. Are you getting my drift? You are not going to get any help from POF staff to message the person who has you blocked, let alone removing the block.

POF must feel that losing a few hundred a week is not concerning since as many, or more, profiles are created every few days. Thus, a Customer Service is not necessary. Right?

OK, that is my Friday morning rant for this week.

Good luck.

Strange disappearing profile... What does this mean?
Posted: 1/4/2019 10:22:26 AM
First off, POF does not just delete users for something to do. The profile under the name you posted is gone. There is still a blip under that POF user name name on google for a 48 year ols, 5’10” non-smoker from Norwich, UK but the link to his profile is dead indicating that the profile is gone. It takes multiple people reporting a user or a rules violation for the site to delete a profile. That being said, many people have been deleted by having other people falsely reporting them.

Unless you are having some reservations about him, what would be the harm in meeting him? You made the arrangements so he was expecting it. He will obviously know that his profile is gone and should realize that will prevent you from responding. Just be sure to do it in a public place and either have someone else there or at least let people know when and where you plan the meeting – just in case. Just be a bit more cautious since his profile was deleted without him saying anything about deleting it on his own.

Angry people here in the forums have gotten my profile deleted more than a dozen times. I have recreated it each time. Several times using the same user name and same email address within a few minutes of finding out it was deleted. I usually posted under the handle of Mr_J_Cash .

His profile was deleted by POF. Any number of reasons whether deserved or not.

POF will never divulge why a user was deleted.

If he is real and if he is truly interested he will create a new profile and seek you out.

I figured my old friend ForumLurker would have chimed in by now. If not with an answer at least to point out where I am wrong or to tell me off.

Hey Lurker, how the hell are you? I haven’t seen anything from you for three or four months now. You OK buddy?

ammlife,
There are several possibilities causing your inability to get onto the dating site.

First, are you still having the same issue? If not, likely a temporary glitch that has been corrected. POF’s poor coding has many and often glitches.

Second. If you are continuing to have the issue I have a few questions.
When you say the same is happening “on both cell and computer”, is that the POF app on your phone or are you attempting to log into POF using the browser on your phone? If the browser, are you using a google phone with the Chrome browser? Do you use Chrome on your computer?

There have been issues reported by users trying to log in with the Chrome browser.

If you come back to this thread let us know if you are still having this issue and if so the answers to the above questions. Someone will likely come up with a possible solution.

Hiding a profile hides it from searches. Hiding a profile will remove it from the viewed me lists. That is all it does.

Hiding a profile does not delete messages.
Hiding a profile does not hide messages.
Hiding a profile does not delete from the meetme list.
Hiding a profile does not prevent you, or anybody from viewing it.


If POF deletes a profile all messages you sent to, and/or received from, the user are deleted.
If POF deletes a profile they are removed from any and all viewed me lists.
If POF deletes a profile they are removed from any and all meetme lists.


It used to be that if the user deleted their own profile all message they sent were deleted but messages you sent them that are less than 20 days (or so) old stayed in your sent folder. I do not know if this is still the case.

How do you cancel credit card payments
Posted: 12/26/2018 1:28:23 PM
Katana2,
There are a few unfortunate outcomes related to your purchase and subsequent post in these forums.

First: Nobody from POF management reads these forums. There is no moderation of the forums other than one moderator that still moderates only the event postings. They (POF) abandoned everything else years ago but never removed them. They still use the event forums but neglected to end all the other forums.

Second: POF has no visible avenue of contact other than attempting to email the at CSR@pof.com. Do not hold your breath while waiting for a reply.

Third: Unfortunately, as far as POF is concerned, all purchases are final and POF will not give any refunds nor any credits. If your bank will not honor your request to credit the other two purchases you are likely out of luck.

Fourth (and likely the biggest issue): You put way too much personal information on a forum posting. 1)You gave your full first and last name. 2)Your profile attached to this post gives your location. 3)You listed the last four numbers of a credit card. You would likely be surprised how much can be found out about you with just a name and city. It is easy to find social media accounts and postings, newspaper articles, even if just obituaries and death notices that list you as a survivor, or organization that list you as a member, even church membership lists. Combine that personal information with the last four of a credit/debit card and that may be all a person needs to have to get a password reset to on line accounts.

Also, you cannot get postings deleted.

Good luck.



EDIT Spot posted as I was composing. I have to totally agree with her.

This is an old, long running issue. There are dozens of threads on this issue with hundreds of suggestions like turn off cap lock, deleting cookies, clearing your caches, clearing history, etc., etc. They are all hogwash! As my old buddy ForumLurker usually posts about this issue, the only thing that that has been suggested that people report as working is…

Disable your VPN.

If you are using proxy that too can cause it but if I were a betting man I would put a bundle on it being that you are running a VPN and disabling it will be your fix.

See these posts:

https://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts16417926.aspx
Msg 9

Those are just the most recent few that have posts with people reporting what fixed the issue for them.


Just a little information.
POF passwords are NOT case sensitive. You can use all caps or no caps or every other letter capitalized when you log in. It does not matter. Just one of the many weaknesses in POF security. In fact, by not allowing the use of VPNs, POF removes another layer of user security.


The VPN and proxy issue affects the dating site but not the forums even though you use the same user name and password. They are connected but separate sites. Evidenced by the fact that logging onto one does not log you into the other.

Age range?
Posted: 11/18/2018 5:47:43 PM
Ahh, the ‘Birthday Conundrum’.

If you are in communication with someone who is right on the edge of the 14 year age difference and one of you has a birthday that puts you two over the 14 year age difference then communication is cut off. What I do not know is if the emails are deleted (??). Also, if they are deleted, do they come back if the two people reconnect when the second one has a birthday thus returning them to less than 14 years difference(??).

Message Notification won't reset
Posted: 11/8/2018 4:37:27 PM
Over the years this has happened to me a number of times. Sometimes it corrected itself. Other times I was able to reset it by messing myself then opening the message. Like I said, sometimes that worked but sometimes it didn't.

You might want to try that. You have nothing to loose.

Good luck.
