From time to time, I see people complaining about the over-zealous administrators on this site deleting posts and "censoring" people. Honestly, though, I'm trying to figure out where all these admins are.

I put in a service ticket over a week ago, and have gotten no response. I posted on the Help & Suggestions forum 6 days ago. No replies. I've had a tag awaiting approval for a good week now. It's still pending.

Which brings me to another point. Why the hell do tags require approval? Are they afraid I'm going to advertise an interest in pedophilia or necrophilia? Is that really common enough to be worth requiring approval, rather then just disallowing certain words and doing periodic sweeps to remove offending tags?

Likewise for pictures. Full nudity is allowed. The range of things that are actually disallowed all seem that they would be rare enough that requiring active approval seems silly. I mean, what percentage of pictures are actually disallowed? Like with the tags, wouldn't it be easier and more convenient for all involved to just do periodic sweeps for offending images? Take a hint from OkCupid and allow users to flag images that break the rules, to make it even easier for the admins to find them.

Maybe if you fixed the approval system, the admins would have the time to actually do their job. Like, removing all these damn bots and fake accounts that try to forward people to porn sites, other swinger sites and web cams.

Good point but it was pointed out to me that the administrators of this site are both few in number and also responsible for 2 other sites (this being the smallest of the three).

To me, that just means they need to hire more admins.

Now, I understand that this costs money. However, if they had good administration, they'd be easily making that money. Why? Because this is the only ACTUALLY free sexually-oriented match site I've been able to find which isn't ludicrously small. I think the only thing keeping it down is the fact that the admins aren't keeping it up properly.

Da Bear, is real busy, and I'm partly to blame. I pester the furry 'lil bondage bear with no mercy. Also he stopped to responding to somethings, prolly again my fault. To e-mail admin directly, just go to Da Bear's pic on that help thread, click it like a normal profile, go from there.

I have had pictures disallowed on technicalities a bunch of them, I finally started adding a sarcastic caption about which member it is similar to to get them approved.

I hope that helps,

To prove a point a troll that plaqued the site was removed by admin, not unsubbed, but is gone! Ding Dong da troll is gone!

And somebody finally approved my tag. I still have a picture pending, though.

I hope this is a sign of generally improved service, and not just some quick changes to try and prove they're active.

I believe they are genuine changes as things seem to have improved around here.

Keep in mind that they have at least three sites to keep track of...and as far as membership this one is the smallest. That doesn't mean we are any less important...just the others keep them very busy as well. Personally I think they're doing a great job!

Maybe I'm just spoiled by OkCupid, which is a site I have ridiculous amounts of respect for. Like this site, it's completely free. With all the time I've spent there, everything has always worked so well and so smoothly I've never even felt the need to seek out an admin.

Now I'm in a serious, long term relationship, thanks to OkCupid. However, this is an open relationship, so now I'm looking just for casual sex. While OkCupid has facilities for specifying that as an interest, there aren't many people on there looking for that. So, I went looking for a site that better fit my updated needs.

I've found a whole slew of "swinger" sites. Until this one, every site I found charged a pretty hefty sum to be able to do really anything at all. When I first found this place, I figured I had hit on the sexually oriented OkCupid.

Unfortunately, I've been very disappointed so far. At first, it was just that there weren't enough people in my area. Alright, the site's not as big. Then I kept stumbling areas where the interface was unnecessarily clunky or difficult, realized that all pictures and tags require approval, which can take much more then the 36 hours they specify, and the place is utterly inundated with bots and false accounts trying to lure you over to other sites, to such an extent that I actually don't know if ANY of the women in my area are real accounts.

I'm sticking with the site for a little while longer, because I honestly haven't been here long enough to make any final judgements... But so far it's not looking too promising.
