  1. Add a Video Upload feature

    I would like to be able to upload personal videos to my profile, and be able to have them public or locked to control who has access if desired, or set access level based on followers like private photos are.

    • Don't give photoless members access before they fill their profile

      10% of my followers consist of people with an empty profile or any pictures. They have fully excess to my profile, it doesn't feel good that they can see pretty personal information that i share on this site without taking any effort to share anything of themselves.

      Members have the ability to block members, with my membership im able to block 10 members, i've got over 50 'ghostfollowers' so i cant block them all. This really sucks...

      I understand the platform does make a difference between premium- and basic memberships. Many basic members are contribution value to this site, so…

      • Search by Country / More Distance Options

        We should be able to filter by country. In countries like the US / Canada / Austrailia - you should be able to limit a search to your state / province.

        While we are at it, we should be able to set location distance with a sliding bar to be able to set between 1KM to 500KM. Smaller increments would be nice.

        • Ability remove people who are following you

          How come there is no ability to remove someone from the list of people following you?

          • Allow complete, mutual blocking

            1) Currently if user A blocks/unblocks user B (currently no notification given to user B), user A can still view parts of user B's profile. Take a note from Facebook and make blocked profiles completely and mutually inaccesible, with the only option being unblock the blocked profile, not view it.

            2) Because user A is now invisible to user B, they cannot mutually block user A though they may wish to remain invisible to user A even if he/she decides to unblock user B. This gives more 'power' to the user to hit the block button *first* though both wish…

            • Give users control over who follows them

              Right now, the only way to stop someone from following you is to block them which is severe. One may not want to be followed yet not want to block the person. A member may not want to be followed by some kind of members (age range, etc.) There should be some control given to the user that does not require a complete block. 2 options are:

              1) Require approval. The followee gets a note that "X wants to follow you" and must either approve or deny the request. As with xtube follows, no confirmation is sent to the person…

              • Community Verified Profiles

                Allow users to vote on the veracity of a profile. Certain number of votes = community verified profiles. This will allow for users to trust certain people more than others if it's a "too good to be true" kind if situation.

                • Add a "travel" option

                  Many similar sites now have an option to post specific events or travel plans to your profile, that is then searchable. So you can find others going to the same event, or that will be traveling to your area, etc. It's a great feature to have to help facilitate meeting others.

                  • Have a category for age preference

                    Would love to see a section to check that asks what age preference you are looking to meet or chat with- ie. looking for my own age; older than me only; younger than me only; no preference. Would help a daddy like me to weed out the young guys who arent into the more mature folks and visa versa.

                      It would be a nifty feature if there was an option to allow or disable being viewed/ or viewing profiles that have no face pictures.

                          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.

                              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.

                                    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.

                                      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.
