    I didn't see a March one yet so I'll add my suggestions here.

    I really wish there was:

    --A way to see a list of all your blog watchers
    --A way to see when the last time was that someone in your friend network or hotlist, etc viewed your profile. Instead of paging back through all the viewers

    Thanks!
I agree that both of those features would be nice

We're posting to once more remind Adult FriendFinder that we have six weeks to go on our membership and that because of the insipid advertising of this site that appeals to teenagers and morons, we're probably boogeying. We also want to see how long this posting remains up, as others we've posted seem always to disappear quickly.

Our point: if Adult FriendFinder wants to thrive and increase revenues, it needs more Gold and Silver members. Standards mean nothing but "eyeballs," a discredited currency on the Internet. Ads that appeal to puerile children -- "Get laid!" etc. -- are not going to draw in paying customers who are older, more diverse, and more confident in their sexuality than the teenage boys you are obviously appealing to.

Why doesn't someone from marketing address the audience about this issue, which is a big one for many members? We pay their salaries, the least they could do is meet the customers in public. Adult FriendFinder was once the cream of the crop....

PS There are now so many profiles with the standard scrambled name followed by four or five digits, even we could program a filter to eliminate these obvious frauds. That would cut about 50% in our region.

    The people in support are half Witt's. You explain a problem with great detail, they answer back as if they are talking to a fifth grader, or skate around the problem. I have 9 blogs yet still have not got my trophy!! Suggest better, or use of programming to handle this. With the number of fakes, your current application is inadequate. Give us the people that have been reporting them, say a 3 slot 20 unit pull down that we can use. Offer an incentive, say points for doing so, since as stated Adult FriendFinder does not like having them here?
It has also been my experience that often contacting support regarding a problem often results with unsatisfactory results.With me they often gave an answer that made no sense or did not even bother to reply.

i really liked the notification bar, maybe just make an on off button so not everyone has to use it, and also show the persons location so we can tell if they are close enough to bother with checking out their profile,other wise you have to go to every profile to find the ones that are local... perhaps if every form of listings should show asl, makes surfing through easier for us.

    When did A F F become GetItOn? Were members informed of this change?
Get It On is one of the sites run by Various Inc which also owns this site and many others. If you want a profile over there, you should be able to log in over there with your handle and password here. If you don't want a profile over there, you can delete it without it interfering with your profile here. This is not the case with all of the sites they own, as some are just different co-brand names of this site.

Well, here's a few thoughts for February:

01) The new IM works vastly better than the old one. I'm glad Adult FriendFinder decided to rebuild it from the ground up & maintain the look of the previous one we were familiar with. Sure, there are still a few kinks, but finally, something is moving in the right direction. Thanks for adding the "page received, user not acted upon it" message when trying to establish a PM with someone. The alert tone is a long requested & welcome addition as well.

01) a) IM Ignore: I agree with others about the new function of the ignore button when you receive a page. we should have an option to Ignore all future contact or permanent ignore, something like that. There are probably a lot of users who don't understand how the "new ignore" works. (Maybe they don't want to appear rude with decline & think it's more polite to ignore. How about Accept, Ignore & Ban, and No Thanks.

02) Spammers: The number of spammers & fake profiles is still high, and more prevalent than normal. Y'all may think you have fixed a loophole, but it is out of hand. (Funny thing is the problems legitimate users often face when making changes or uploading their profiles.... somehow the decline profile works well for them but not the obvious spammers.)

03) Blog Comment Vote: I'm unable to vote on all comments within a blog. Some comments allow me to vote, some don't. (BTW, I try to vote on everything in YOUR BLOG, as it may help you gauge which ideas are important to us overall.) (Wish others would do the same as they read through each post.)

04) The Notification Bar is working well for me. However, I have it throttled back to only show me what my friends are doing & about 1/2 of the stuff in the General settings. I was getting too many alerts from people too far away from me based on my Cupid Settings. (This would be great if it was more limited by distance or user set criteria.)

05) SuperFlirt: I agree with what someone else suggested, get rid of it. It makes it too easy for spammers to mess with us. Also, when you can a spammer, figure out how to remove all the flirts, hotlists, etc. they have done.

Thanks for your help.

    Why are the "geographic" chat rooms set up the way they are? In terms of size, Texas is the largest state geographically in the "lower 48". If you've ever been here you know there are four major metropolitan areas - Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio - and, in between nothing but beautiful Texas countryside - but I digress, sorry I'm a proud Texan.

    The real question is - is why aren't there chatrooms for the major metropolitan areas? Not only for Texas, but for other states as well. When you look at the map of how chatrooms are set up.....well, this is Adult FriendFinder.....and, if I'm looking for "friends" they are generally in my own geographic area - or wherever I happen to be at the moment.

    What I'd suggest, and let's take Texas for example is a Texas Chat Room and Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin Chat Rooms as well.....

    I'm sure you have a lot o members in the major metropolitan areas of the country that would appreciate being able to zero in on folks closer to them in the chat rooms..........
That's an excellent suggestion. I would add that we need to do this for Europe as well. I think historically we were worried about enough people being in each chat room. I'll ask around, see if this can be done. You should be able to drill down in.

Ryan, I'm not having much luck with customer support, so I'll turn to you. I purchased the "Private Calling Feature" with the understanding that I'd easily be able to find other members who have purchased the feature. When I contacted customer support - they told me that any member that had the "Talk to him (her, them, etc.) displayed on their profile - had purchased the feature - which isn't true - it appears on every profile.

They also told me that I'd be able to see an icon in search lists that indicated if a member had the feature or not - again, not true.

This is a very cool feature........but either I don't understand how to use it - or there are issues...........help!

    The fake profiles are the worst thing right now on this site! So if you can't stop the fakes give us an easier way to report them then give us points for it! Getting a lot more cams saying they are private when they are on as public ,the new live cam girl screen in top right corner shows guys too, i was surprised by a naked guy when i signed in today! wtf! It is taking longer to sign in now because of this I think. I like the sound when paged! Pager seems to be working better! I wonder if the women know it can be turned off after watching a cam where the pings went on and on the whole time from all the guys paging her! The set your mood thing doesn't work and I don't care. The renew my Gold membership screen is annoying as hell since I already got customer service to turn it off but it's now back on!
Agreed seems Adult FriendFinder is not doing so well in scanning the photos for upload. Give us a way to help report these. It would make the site, and affiliated sites seem a little more credible wouldn't it, with out so many fakes?
2 examples profile says she is 28 pic was a woman around 48, second profile says bra size 34A lol these puppies had to be 36D

I was viewing cams tonight. Specifically Man Cams and I used the sort by distance. Right in the middle of all the other local cams was one from Florida. I though, what the heck? Clicked on his profile and the location in his profile was "College Station, TX" - but in the cam list - it said he was from "Valrico, FL" The member I was looking at was vic_0605. And, as I looked around - there were several discrpencies between a member's location on their profile and how their location displayed on the cam list.

Locations have been screwed up for weeks, when are they going to fix that - as I've stated before, I travel a lot - and it takes forever for them to approve the change in location and, when it does get changed, it's not changed system wide. Let's get this one fixed.

And, change the policy so that I can change my location at will and not have to wait for it to be approved.......

Pretty Please................

OK .. where did the "quick reply" choices go? The "notification bar" that cannot be removed appeared - and they went poof. Probably one of the best features that you all had in email was that series of choices - and the ability to send a bunch of "no Thank You" emails to those you chose not to interact with further - but didn't want to waste either energy or time draughting specific responses. Anyone else notice this - or is it another removal of former functionality no longer available to standard members?

Here's an interesting thing Ryan. Well my gold membership ran out so i let it go to standard due to not having anything work for 2 weeks on here. I work nights so i sign in this morning as a standard member for the 1st time in a couple of years. Well there aren't any fake profiles??? I turn on imc and i don't see them there either??? I turn on my cam and it is clearer and audio is working?? the icon is there where it's supposed to be too! I randomnly try cams and every one i try loads up and is clear as possible!!! I try to page someone and it works great!!! I can't believe that you fixed everything a day after my gold runs out,i am shocked!!! Well i go to sleep and i just signed on and everything is back to screwing up!!!! Fake profiles everywhere,1 of 5 cams are either private or just go to black screen and pager doesn't work at all!!!!!!! Now does this seem like it's my pc or my set up? No it doesn't! What is going on over there? This truly takes the cake! Why would i pay hard earned money for this? I had every intention of renewing for another year but now, NOT!

If a standard member CHOOSES to contact someone who DOES NOT have that option available - they can spend points that are given for activities the standard member does on the site. When your dissatisfaction with paying for a service that is buggy at best, has ended ... you will either leave or lapse a membership to standard status.

To me that is just good business sense for the site to have paying members here. Plus letting standards do almost the same as paying members creates ways for people to create so many profiles at no cost to them and a high cost to us that pay!
You're not realizing the fact that in leaning toward your suggestions the site will be alienating the majority of its members.

This is not an elitist union.
The site won't get shit for business in the future years if they keep shutting out their main attractions.

What's with Adult FriendFinder at the moment? Service has dropped markedly of late.

I live in London but Adult FriendFinder?/IMC transports me each time to Calif

If I view photos I get a message to either requests me to restart your session or we notice that you haven't signed up yet - I'm a paying Silver member.

Access to images has been reduced, once where I was able to view members photo albums now I can only view 5 profile images.

IMC generally doesn't work.

A member will be shown as being online when in fact they are not. (tested this with a friend, she having highlighted this to me)

General opinion of Adult FriendFinder - a lot of over egging the pudding. The 'millions' of members is actaully only several hundred thousand active members worldwide. At anyone time only 2-3k people worldwide will be chatting, a poor return from the 'millions' that we are told use the site.

Very poor customer service.

2.) Make it so we can block unwanted members from viewing our profiles if we don't want them to view them.

3.) Get rid of kudos system it is worthless!

4.) Get rid of the super-flirt, it cuts down on some of the tools spammers use.

5.) Make it so we as members can control our profiles more freely instead of having to call CS to do things for us and it will cut down on some of the work overload the site has to do.

6.) Make it so that we can delete anything we post anywhere in case we have a change of heart in what we say or so we can edit our own post by deleting and re-posting.
Point is give us more control of our profiles here.

7.) Last but not least why give standard profiles so much ability to maneuver in the site when we have to pay! That to me is not good business sense. If standards can do most of what paying members can do then why do we as paying members have to pay? I pay for standards to be able to contact me or see my profile, so if I pay for them to do this then why not make them up grade to do the things paying members do. To me that is just good business sense for the site to have paying members here. Plus letting standards do almost the same as paying members creates ways for people to create so many profiles at no cost to them and a high cost to us that pay!

    Yah really. I finally come back to blogs to discover you're taking away an integral part of the blogs.

    I'm damned sure not going to go pay to be able to post pix that the majority of my "watchers" and readers can't see. You'd think you guys would've figured this stuff out after you stupidly made cams viewable only for paid members.

    Funny how the guys didn't run out and sign up for that one and the site just about died in a few days.
Amen, sista!

I will not be a happy camper if it gets to the extreme you're picturing.
Don't these new guys running the site understand that:
1. The majority of the population of this site is male!
2. This is a sex site!!
3. Studies show men are predominantly visually aroused!!!

It's kind of a perverted point to make but what the hell... this is a SEX SITE!
I mean come on let's get real... take away the majority of peoples' rights to post and view videos, to post and view pictures... what do we have left? A bunch of text that most guys here don't even read anyway
I don't know where they think they're gonna be getting the bigger slice of their pie from, come another year down the road, if they've alienated the majority of their members - which just happens to be non-paying members and men...

Sorry Ryan... you are such a sweetheart and SO patient with what you do and obviously none of this is directed at you... these are issues that go waaaaaaaay up to the top of the food chain, where obviously none of us are able to reach.

I have written E mail (not my E mail address - just the words) and (I presume your automatic system) has now turned my profile off.

I have two languages in my profile and now (I presume your automatic system) has cited this as an unsupported language.

I am sick and tired of the profile reviews on this site and may I suggest getting your act together.

Honest - Hacer fotos eróticas y videos de tu/mi perfil - Making erotic photos and videos for your/my profile
Passionate - Expressing yourself during sex ....
Thoughtful - Why men become kinkier in middle age ....

    I would suggest that when an account is "banned" (ie you close down a bot account and delete it) that you remove all the flirts they have sent. I have 13 flirts in the past 30 days. 8 of the accounts are closed, and 4 of the other 5 look to be bots you guys have not removed yet (all 4 from the same place in NYC).

    I understand you cannot catch these accounts quickly, but why not remove the residue. I don't know if removing individual flirts is a silver/gold ability but the only thing i can do is remove all flirts. I cannot remove individual ones so i have to have them sit there for a month. And in that time a bunch more will roll in.
That's a great idea

A site wide block...would be very nice...including blocking profile view...and streamline the current blocking of members...one box to check that blocks all activities...Informing members of future updates in a timely manner both here and the SSB...suggesting to members not to use any other IMC systems while trying to use the one here (which would probably solve the majority of connection/paging problems with it here) I'd be quite pleased with those... for a start.

Adult FriendFinder Customer Support regarding the new banners (Complaint)

I am writing this here as maybe I'll get more feedback here than some half-witted excuse that I do from team support.

I have sent two emails complaining to Adult FriendFinder about these new banners. They appear in both the INBOX advertising “Make Contact and Get Laid” and the CHATROOMS advertising “Group Chats Meet More Members”.
They also appear in:
The Lists page advertising “Keep Track of all those Hotties”
The Friend Network page advertising “Get the most out of your friend network”
The video page advertising “Watch tons of Sexy Videos”
The Blog page advertising “Avid bloggers get more attention” and gawd knows where else.
Not just the fact that they are annoying and take up half the page…………..they aren’t making me want to pay or upgrade to Adult FriendFinder, when the site does something as stupid as this.

Fact is if Adult FriendFinder is going to make it more difficult for standard members to use this site, then they will simply go elsewhere………………..we do have a vast choice of other sites to give our membership to, and to sites that work and actually care about their members. Also Word of mouth goes along way…………..right now my word of mouth does not do Adult FriendFinder any favours.

What I do find Ironic is the banner in the chatroom takes up half the page cutting the room in half so you cant see what people are saying. Yet the banner is advertising just that “Group Chat helps you meet more members”. Well it doesn’t help you meet more members when you cant see the page because the damn banner is in the way………….Adult FriendFinder is making it impossible to chat. This doesn’t make me want to upgrade either. The last thing I want to do is give money to a site that doesn’t work properly.

Of all the stupid decisions Adult FriendFinder has made, the decision to put these damn banners up really takes the cake. And then to receive email replies from customer care saying they don’t know what I’m talking about…………..is just some half-witted excuse. Yes they do know damn well what I am referring to and what others are complaining about, yet they wont remove them and they give us some half-assed excuse as if they don’t understand what we are referring to.

Adult FriendFinder’s other dim-witted reason that they are in the red and have to put these adds on is to make money is just inexcusable. If Adult FriendFinder actually looked after the customers they DO have instead of making it more difficult to use the site making us wanting to leave Adult FriendFinder, then they wouldn’t put up these annoying and discouraging advertising banners.

Below are the response I got from Adult FriendFinder customer care to my complaint and also the response a friend got from customer care. It,s these stupid half arsed replies that make me think this site is being run by a pack of monkeys. Another thing these emails from team support are printed exactly the way they were typed to us.

Email reply sent to xxx (another Adult FriendFinder member / friend of mine / soon to be ex Adult FriendFinder member because of this shit)

Dear customer,

Unfortunately, we are unable to take off the banners which run on the top of chat room.The banners do not run across chat room or interfere with the content of chats.We do apologize for the inconvenience this may be causing you.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.Thankyou
Alicia L.
Adult FriendFinder TEAM SUPPORT

Email reply I received

Dear Member,

Thank you for contacting Customer Support.

We do not have enough information from you to determine what the real problem it is. It will be clearer if you can provide us a step-by-step of what happened so we can exactly assist you in this matter.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.

Thank you,

Peter S.
Adult FriendFinder Team Support

So here I am now posting this complaint in the Adult FriendFinder Community Blogs in hope that someone will give a reasonable explanation or even a solution to removing these half arsed useless banners that they say they cant remove, yet who was it that put them up there in the first place.

Also I might add that in my email to them I was more than clear about the problem. I even had a friend (who majored in English) listen to the email I sent Adult FriendFinder before I actually sent it……………..so I know that it was more than clear.

Unimpressed (again)

Is there some kind of method to the that chat banner? I see it under this handle but I don't see it under our couple handle? Is that because our couple handle has been a paid account within the last year (and is likely to be again in the future)?

The only thing I HAVE to do is eat, shit, and die. Everything else is a choice.

From my previous post....
"Also, I'm seeing a number of wrongly classified photos slipping through. Full nudity showing when the content filter is on, and fully clothed being cloaked by mistake. The review process with the new photo albums obviously needs work."

This is on the home page, I forgot to say.

New request :

The new notification bar - Can we please3 turn if off completely so it disappears ? Personally, I dont want it at all.

If its not possible to completely get rid of it, then it should sit turned off at the far right of the screen, not the left. Where its located on the left side is a total pain, obsures all sorts of things and forces you to scroll more often to see a screen full. This is particularly annoying for the blog main and group main pages, where it obscures things you have specifically listed there.

Wow Ryan .. something is going on because I get a "join and be a member to make a comment". And then my blog disappeared and magically appeared again. Yeah. Ghosts in the Machine.

Actually - I am writing to ask about the new blip that is showing up on the Blogs homepage. From this, it is saying that standard members now cannot add photos - which is something we were always allowed to do. I have no issue with not being able to respond in comments - but to arbitrarily remove functions (as of yet it is not disabled) seems rather short-sighted and mean. Why don't you all INCREASE the options for blogs available to silver and gold members, rather than remove options that many of us standard members use consistently?

It just seems that you all are removing more and more features from the standard members - yet you read all the complaints from the paying members about the buggy service, non-functional options, etc ... and then have an expectation that everyone is going to pay for services that are not functional ? It just seems to be another marketing moneymonger gone wrong. Just like the difficulties I had trying to post this comment today - just to get TO the comment screen ... It hardly puts me in the mood to pay. Thanks

Getting a lot more cams saying they are private when they are on as public ,the new live cam girl screen in top right corner shows guys too, i was surprised by a naked guy when i signed in today! wtf! It is taking longer to sign in now because of this I think. I like the sound when paged! Pager seems to be working better! I wonder if the women know it can be turned off after watching a cam where the pings went on and on the whole time from all the guys paging her! The set your mood thing doesn't work and I don't care. The renew my Gold membership screen is annoying as hell since I already got customer service to turn it off but it's now back on!
Yeah, I've seen the private/public issue. Our engineer who built the tool knows about it and is working on it.

I know you're speaking about spammers, but our issues with cams are simply due to Flash not being able to handle the amount of simultaneous server requests for connection. That's why you get the black screen. Usually a broadcaster seems to top out at about 1000 viewers before we start seeing issues pop up.

We are testing out a new tool that cam sites use to manage their volume. It should allow for about 5x as many connections. It's going to get better.

Spammers are always going to be a problem on cams. We can't pre-qualify a standard member. We don't want them on there either - we are on the same side here. They get shut down as they get reported.
