6) Search options made to stay that way until we change them (18 votes)
Submitted by: Sandi on 23/05/2020 01:19
Description: In the search criteria, when there's a multiple choice option, is it possible, once we've chosen the option, for it to stay that way until we change it again. I know that sounds Irish, no offence to the Irish.
When it asks for preferences smoker, non smoker or not bothered. I choose non smoker and will always do so, so it's pretty annoying to have to keep selecting it every time I search the profiles.
7) Add a Request Meet Tab on Events (18 votes)
Submitted by: SuzyQ675 on 15/12/2019 13:15
Description: Similar to the Request Lift or Offer Life Tab on the Events Pages I would like to see a Request Meet (or Offer Meet) tab on the events pages for either individuals or groups who are going who would not mind including someone who is perhaps thinking of attending the event but worried about going on their own and would just like a friendly face to meet them and camp next to (for security) at the event. It doesn't mean they are "babysitting" the person but a point of contact and you never know it could be a new friend! It can be daunting going to a rally on your own and if you are shy then it is hard to make the first move to chat sometimes.
