Why is there no link to the forums on the main page. I get annoy'd having to google the forums to goto it. Seems like a subpar site design idea.

 

Also a friend sitting next to me sign'd up but noticed she couldnt get to the forums even with searching google. It would instantly take her right to the welcome page. Is there a reason the forums arent available to people if new?

Also I see no search by weight option. When is this being added.

 

Another thing. I noticed quite a few things on my personality are incredibly wrong.  WAAAAAAAAY to the left and its almost the exact opposite of me.  How do I fix that?? It gives a very innaccurate presentation of me and I dislike that greatly.  And I hope the answer isnt go answer more questions. Ive gone thru over 2000 <bored and killing time> and somehow when being honest it tells me thinks completely opposite about me.    

 

There was something else but I cant remember it now.

Bookmark/favorite the forum page. Tell your friend to log off of Cupid and try typing in okcupid and  forum in search and see if that gets them in. The forum was closed off to fresh meat over two years ago, but I've read that people can still get on to read them, just not post on them for a while.

I recently deleted ALL my questions and now only answer the ones that are very important or mandatory to me. I feel that gives me a more accurate match %age with men, and I can quickly look at the questions they've answered that matter to me, rather than wading through fluff.

Probably when "weight" actually becomes an option? I think the closest is "body type" which is actually searchable if you pay for it. (A-List)

Of course, people lie and most are dumb when it comes to this option. "Average" people put "Thin" and "Overweight" people put "Average" or whatever.

Hmm... Well I think I will do that. For some reason I felt I had to answer alot of questions for it to be accurate.   I'll try a lower amount this time. thanks for that idea.

 

Ah bodytype is close enough for me. I miss'd it. Thanks

 

Ah so it was closed off to fresh meat. Ok i'll mention that to her.was wondering about that. Thanks.

 

Well that solved all my questions. If I have anymore i'll check the forums again for answers. 

Oh wait one last question. Are IM's working properly?  I noticed my IM was off on my profile when my friend view'd it.  I noticed a thread that mention'd a glitch. Is that still a problem or is the on and off switch'd?

 

 

And I look'd at that angles site. Ive seen some of this stuff so it's no surprise.

Anyone can view the forums when they're logged off.  The reason new accounts can't access them when logged on is to force some sort of cooldown period on the worst trolls.  It used to be open to anybody the moment they opened an account, and it got seriously ugly.

(Also part of the reason the link isn't available to total newbies.  A largely unmoderated zone isn't necessarily the best way to keep people around, and OKC has a vested interest in not having users leave in a huff.)

Yes, there did seem to be a glitch with IM. I ALWAYS keep my IM on. I don't mean to insult your intelligence, but you DO know there's the chat bubble at the bottom right of your page you can scroll over to turn it off/on, right? Some people have told me that my chat bubble is not showing next to my name on my profile before, even as we're chatting.

But, a lot of people don't know you can't use the chat with the phone app.

The IM will appear "Off" on a profile in AT LEAST the following scenarios and possibly others:

  1. User is logged-in using one of the smartphone apps that don't support IM
  2. User is logged-in but hasn't touched the browser for a while (ie >30 minutes) or their internet connection is flaky/intermittent
  3. User is brand-new and has certain communications throttled
  4. Profile doesn't meet someone else's "IM filter parameters" (this feature may or may not still be accessible to new users)
  5. User has their IM disabled or turned-off
  6. User either has an incompatible browser with the IM system here or something on their device or computer that blocks the code that runs the IM functionality
  7. The person has the other user blocked

"I don't mean to insult your intelligence, but you DO know there's the chat bubble at the bottom right of your page you can scroll over to turn it off/on, right?"   If you dont mean to then why do so anyways?  Kind of like telling someone sorry but your a bitch. Its an insult with a fake I didnt mean to or sorry thrown in there.

  Anyways, I found it shortly after I made my IM post.  For some reason the IM bubble wasnt showing up in the lower corner. It does now.

 

    Thanks sfguyyy. I think i'll disable my IM's.  I just wanted to know.

What I was SAYING, was that I don't know how knowledgeable you were about this site, and that I didn't want to sound like I was talking to someone who wasn't aware of the IM when that was the first thing you found. Geez, you try to be polite and helpful and get called a bitch! Nice.

Actually I didnt call you a bitch.   I was thinking you'd take it as such tho. 

And I figured you were trying to help me and it's appreciated it was just the phrasing of it that made it seem less polite then it was.

Perhaps because you made stupid assumptions you shouldn't have made. She's a very nice and helpful person, try not being so prickly and perhaps you'd discover that yourself before you tick people off with annoying premature assumptions.
