  1. Ability to link profile to a partner

    would be nice for those people who are in a relationship with another grommr member to have a link in their profile to the partner

    • Ability to hide your presence online

      How many times you would be logged to chat with some one without being disturbed by other people? If you'll upload that opportunity, people could quietly chat or just being logged, without being visible by other contacts.

      • Add a 'suspend account' option

        I think that users who have second thoughts about gaining should be able to suspend their account, rather than completely deleting it. That way, if they end up changing their mind again (which many do) they don't have to start at square one. Plus, it would save all the user's information, following/followers lists, photos, etc. so that they don't have to re-add when they return and other users don't have to re-follow them.

        • Removal of inactive members

          This site shows the last time a member has logged on, that is great. Now members who haven't logged on for more than a year should be removed &/or deleted.

          • How about "ignore" as a precursor to Block?

            There are profiles I'd rather not see or hear from, not because they did anything wrong but because I just don't want to see them. Block seems so harsh because if that person ever wanted to make contact they shouldn't be told they've been blocked. An "ignore" would simply be an invisible way to filter out the profiles you just don't care to hear about or are spammy. Then block could be retained for being for serious offenses.

            • Add a "homebase" location field

              Sometimes it gets a bit confusing when people change their locations often. If possible, displaying both a current location and a "home base" location would be ideal, especially if it could be integrated into the search and filter features. This could be particularly useful for people who use the Local Newsfeed often.

              • Ability to search the user-entered profile text / description

                Users can search the canned options such as type of facial hair or body style, but I propose making the profile text searchable so users can search for people with similar non-gaining-related interests, such as sports, TV shows, etc.

                • A friends option

                  There are lots of people I 'follow" that i like to be able to see updates on. But it makes it really difficult to find out when friends are online to chat too. It would be really nice to have an option to mutually friend people so you know when they are on.

                  • Ability to set a search Radius in a location-based search

                    I like all the options (except BMI) but there's no way to filter out guys that is way out of your distance range. For example I only like to see guys that are within a 20 mi radius from my current location or a designated address. Right now, guys even out of my State are showing up, its quite annoying.

                    • Manually Change Online Status (Away, Do Not Disturb, Available)

                      In most contexts, a member's thumbnail shows a small square in the lower right corner that's either "green" to indicate they're online or brown to indicate "offline". Perhaps this could be made more useful by allowing it to indicate a few additional states:

                      - connected but busy (or away from the browser or device)

                      - connected but please do not disturb (don't expect responses to messages or comments)

                      - connected via mobile device (so cut me a break!)

                      When offline, the system would select the "offline" indicator for that user's thumbnail. When "online", however, perhaps a profile setting could be…

                      • Expand the search/filter: keywords, religion, income, HIV status, etc.

                        Can we please get status filters such as "Cam?" "Skype?" and "Bored?" placed to these filters? I automatically filter every post made by someone who does that in the same way someone filters out by Gainer/Encourager identity, so how about it?

                        Also: religion

                        income bracket

                        HIV status

                        whether you live alone

                        mobile/immobile?

                        If this is really a dating and connection tool, they should include those, as those are things that people look for as much as age, race and height.

                          • Require a photo in profiles. If you can see me I should be able to see you.

                            It's a gaining community site. You shouldn't be able to have a profile without a weight. If you're not a gainer than it shouldn't be a problem.
                            The photo should be one you can see the person, not just a random torso.

                              Remove "transexuals/intersexuals" from the kinks & fetishes list and replace it with a profile option to indicate that you are trans*-friendly, i.e., that you are okay with trans*men speaking/flirting with you. This would make the transgender members of the community feel more welcome and comfortable.

                              • Add a video page to profiles

                                For those of us with videos, it would be great if there was a page on our profiles where we could display our videos. If we could use the embed code from Youtube, people could watch the videos without needing to upload the videos to the site (thus saving server space). It seems many people (including myself) are now unlisting their videos, so this would be a good way to display their videos permanently for the users, whereas currently video links only last as long as they are displayed on one's wall posts.

                                  There should be a box in the search that lets you search or filter by state. This is especially useful for those of us who live in NJ near NYC and don't want our searches filled up with NYC people. I'm sure there are other examples where people would prefer to restrict their searches to a certain geographic area. Right now when I do a search and enter "New Jersey" in the location field, it just picks a central point in NJ and shows nearby guys from that point. I want to see nearby people from where I am but…
