This is a kinda long post, but I've used this opportunity to develop the "Reputation" idea a little more, so I can turn it into a proposal to AdultFriendFinder for a new feature. Your input is welcome.

In order to implement a Reputation idea anything similar to what I outlined, AdultFriendFinder would have to tweak existing ratings code modules in use on the site, add a Reputation Code to each user's profile, and modify the Banning Module to Automatically-Ban-By-Reputation.

It's not a huge project, but it IS significant. And I think it would encourage us all to be on good behavior, at least until the lady gave us permission to be bad boys with her.

AdultFriendFinder has similar Ratings modules in place already - pay attention to the Side or Top of the screen while you read the magazine and stuff, and you'll see variations on the Ratings theme.

Since Ratings programming code exists, it's not a big deal to add a few categories to describe the kind of correspondent the person is, and attached the Ratings Module to the email program. A drop down box somewhere on the email screen would do it. The choices permit you to give your opinion about the sender, your vote as to what his or her reputation should be.

If a person is Rated "obsessive and vulgar" a few times (because he sent such msgs to women who gave him NO reason to think they might be ok with such approach, and then kept demanding a reply), and got a bad reputation, why should Any other woman want to receive emails from such person?

So, women can Ban emails in advance from All people who carry such a bad reputation.

It's not a simple change. But it's not a huge overhaul.

Everyone starts out as Neutral. If a lady does not rate an email, then the email gets a Neutral rating by default, so no need to rate an email unless it moves you, one way or another.

Now, Big Issue: How to WEIGHT the value of a particular Rating incident? Does a Single "Scary" vote carry the same weight as a single "Respectful and Courteous" vote? Ah, details details. How much can a single Rated Email change your pre-existing reputation?

Look, at present the ladies have NO WAY to prevent being inundated by crude stuff they don't want, except to ban people one by one. There's an endless supply of new crude guys, though.

But with my proposal, at least a crude guy would Never be Able to develop a good reputation. Some ladies might refuse to communicate with anyone who lacked a good reputation. And it takes time to develop a good reputation. Once the reputation is lost, the emailer might as well unsubscribe. If he comes back under a new identity, he comes back as Neutral at best, and still be banned from a lot of quality ladies.

And so, Nuetrals had better be on good behavior if they wanna move up!

Wow, too long.

Decent guys have a vested interest in helping ladies ban the riffraff, because then maybe their correspondence would be more likely to stand out and be noticed.

Hi, great blog, topical and well written.

I have a blog outside of AdultFriendFinder, a big one, with loads of good content, and it gets decent traffic, and is well indexed in search engines, but I get Few if Any comments

And when I read blogs, I almost Never comment, just like most people.

So you are seeing human nature --- few comments. People read and move on.

About the subject at hand --- Darn, I take a pretty good amount of time to craft modest-length thoughtful sincere emails to selected ladies who seem compatible. And I try to write about something that I think might move them or show that I've studied their profiles, or thought about what they might be like as people. I'm always polite and never crude.

I know I don't look like Brad Pitt, but if a lady is in my age range, she's accustomed to seeing normal looking people like me. (And most of the ladies in my range dont look like Cindy Crawford!)

But only about 1 in 10 of my emails generates a reply. Kinda discouraging, since I put thought and time into them.

Ah, but I trudge on. Nothing ventured nothing gained. At lease no one has flamed me, so I'm apparently not offending anyone.

We can't click with everyone we might want to click with.

And so far, none of my emails (to my knowledge) have been held up to public ridicule, at least not YET anyway

But you might be onto something with your Blog: Here's an idea: People could Rate solicitations and contacts, by criteria that tells everyone your thoughts about a particular correspondent's style and attitude. It would be like a "reputation". Everyone gets a Rating as a correspondent, reflecting their "reputation", which goes up and down as their correspondence is always being rated by others. People could then ban emails from people by Rating --- "Only those with a reputation of 'Polite' and above may send me emails" (this bans everyone who is rated in the range of Crude, Vulgar, Scary, etc.

Whaddaya say about THAT idea?

This is AdultFriendFinder .... there are many members who may read things but to comment retention is a necesary function. That and the guts / balls to share ones thoughts and have them open to ridicule.
Now your asking a lot

Sassy,

partly you must give this time. I have been at this 3 weeks and some 45 blogs later still write posts generating 0 comments (though I have 200+ in that same time overall); in other words it can take time to build your fan base. There is also the problem that there are 30-40 new blogs creasted every day here. Also, just last night, one of the top bloggers shared with me that most of the female blogs are hit upon for the very same shallow reasons that men hit on women generally .. namely because they can. Your blog can be Googled by those outside of A.F.F. and read by non-members. Once in the blog space, such a person may roam (but is not allowed to comment) about any and all blogs.

All the top women bloggers get 3-5000 views per post with at most 40 comments, and generally much less.

cheers

I'd hardly read any blogs until a few nights ago when you talked about yours in chat, and I tell ya, you're going to get me hooked. Quite a fascinating read you have here, and some fascinating people commenting on it too. Rest assured that I'll be watching this space. Nice work!

Evil step sis, are you telling me to stop commenting on your blog? That comment about the comments by the same member... That has to be me.

Sassy , I've noticed on most blogs that I've viewed or even posted on that there is generally very little follow up either by the originator or anyone else on the thread let alone viewers. Which kinda sucks because you could really get a dialogue going about some of these topics. I could use blogs as my chat substitute since I am pretty much "over" chat at this point. Bad habit, hard to break!
