NEW: Incomplete profiles to be filtered!

At the beginning of the weekend I made a change to the database. From now on all profiles will be filtered from the search pages if the profile contains 6 or more "Tell you later" boxes. Basically if you don't complete your profile then you can still use the site, but you won't get the visibility that other members get.

It's caught a couple of our regular members out already. Which is why I've also added it to the "Account progress" bar which pops up around the place. It will remind you to complete the profile if necessary.

I need to also apologise for doing it in a rush and not fully testing it. This made the profile searches pretty much unusable all weekend. Whooops, sorry. I've fixed it now though.

Feedback welcome below. Do you find 6 boxes too many, not enough, or just right?

I think, given the amount of fields on the profile, 6 is ok. Speaking as one who was 'caught out' & freely admits to it. Missed the six criteria marginally for reasons stated on nother thread. Nothing more annoyin on viewing a profile, to be faced with a succession o blank tell you laters - spesh on the status line. N frankly from a personal point o view, any faceless profiles who view me, get no further brook from me. You can't put your face up = not interested. End of. Simple as. 6 fine by me, Matty Boss Man, though sure others may have differing viewpoints.

Sounds good to me - might encourage folk to complete their profiles. If someone can't be bothered to put anything more than "tell you later" then I can't be bothered to find out.

Hi Happyface - welcome to the website! Hope you like it. Please feel free to send me any feedback you have

Any way of flagging up a profile name somehow to denote it is faceless? Am talking re the list of when someone has viewed your profile? Would save a lot of wasted time of clicking on the seemingly ever growing tribe o faceless wonders. And, after all, being anonymous n faceless on here must be one of the biggest 'incomplete profiles' boo boos...

Absolutely think this is great. Personally I don't see the point of doing the "I'll tell you later" thing. Why bother filling anything in at all ? I, like a lot on here, simply don't bother with faceless "ITYL" members.

If you can't be bothered to fill the questions in, then what makes you think that I'm going to be bothered and second, more importantly, it makes you look like you are hiding something, especially the question of whether you are single/married !

Put a piccie up and fill in the boxes. It isn't hard.

"Tell you later" is what the site says if you don't pick an option or write anything

I'm going to make an "activity" area where you can see views and nods, with photos. It's next on my list

Personally I would like it if profiles without a photo are not included in searches. I'm not into blind dating, and prefer to see who I'm getting messages from.

I don't mean that in a shallow way, as in if you're ugly I won't chat, I just mean I wouldn't speak to anyone who has their face covered so why expect me to do so on here?

Also, if you're attending a BM event, a photo helps others to recognise you when you turn up, provided it's an up to date photo.

Searches already by default exclude people without a main profile picture.
You have to uncheck the box to enable profiles in searches that have no profile.
It's always been this way ;-)
