Just did a search on quickmatch issues and couldn't find anything recent within the past year. So, this quickmatch thing seems like it is designed to keep people coming back to the site for whatever reason rather than to provide an actual service. This is understandable but somewhat counter to what OKC purports to be. So why are results for commentary, discussion, and analysis of quickmatch being apparently suppressed? It would be far better to discover the quickmatch emails are phoney than to be further deceived.

So do you have a question, or is this some sort of rant?

(My god, this place is just like talk radio...)

^You make it sound like you don't like it here, which makes people wonder why you keep coming back.

absit_invidia:  Lots of people have met through Quickmatch, so no, it isn't useless.

Nor is anyone "suppressing commentary" about it either, and the system doesn't generate "fake quickmatch emails".  Please leave your police-state fantasies outside, you must be thinking of somewhere else.

Is there somehtign wrong with quickmatch because it cant find any matched for me( though Ive done like almost 9,000 quickmatch votes)  But if I keep reloading it,  it does find people, so Im wondering

castley:  Someone else actually has to give you a high vote, you don't get a "match" just because you give 9,000 other people high votes. (though I must admit, that's a pretty dismal batting record)

I know it works on some level because I just got a mutual high-vote a few days ago.

I gave most of them low votes, though. I think I gave 400 total 4 or 5 star votes out of the 9000.  I can now only rate 4 or 5 people until i get

"Sorry, I donít have anyone ready for you. Go search for matches and check back soon! ó Staff Robot"

9,000? My guess is that you went through the majority of the users that match your "looking for" parameters (if not all of them).

Since you gave 8,600 of them 3 Stars or less they should be excluded from playing "Quick Match" with you (or they may have rated you as 4 or 5 prior to your rating them and you will never know that they did).

As for the 400, my guess is that they are amongst the "upper echelon" in popularity and disabled their "when someone rates me 4 or 5 stars on my profile or on Quickmatch" Notification (in their Settings).

They are most likely far to busy sorting through which emails to respond to (or lining up dates), to play "Quick Match". Many of them may not even be active on the site anymore.

I'd guess the 4 to 5 you get before seeing the Staff Robot are fairly new users and the Staff Robot is scanning for them when you reload.

You could try broadening your match criteria to see more "Quick Matches".

Personally I do not play "Quick Match". If I am interested in someone I send them a message. I love our little "Staff Robot" but have my "Quick Match" notifications disabled.
