New stuff for Feb 28th release

Some exciting features coming out this wednesday - you can hear about it first here:

1. You can create signatures for your blog and group posts. This way people can know more about you when you posts.

2. Group moderators can make their posts "sticky" so they always stay at the top of their group post lists. (no need to keep bumping posts)

3. Members can create online bling (small graphical icons) to show off their personality. There will be an online bling editor so you can create icons without any special software. You can put lots of blings on your profile, posts, groups, etc as well as trade, sell, or gift them between members. Who knows the possibilities - should be fun to see what members come up with.

4. Possible super cool improvement in the HTML chatrooms... we hope to have it ready for Wednesday but might be delayed a few days. This upgrade will make text appear faster in the HTML chat as well as eliminate chat "flicker".

Question here Andrew,

Will all of these new features be available to Standard members too, considering I would like to testing some of them out to giving feedback on them.

Also, you mention about the chat rooms. Will there ever be anything done to ridding the BOTS that try to redirect members in the chat rooms to other web sites and pay-per-porn sites? I have watched and noticed one common thing in the postings of the BOTS that invade the chat rooms (such as the South Chat Room) and that is they all seem to constantly be using an MSN email address or IM address in the postings.

I have reported many of these BOTS that invade the chat rooms with the "report abuse" link to only seeing it take hours or days before the staff does anything to removing the BOTS. There seems to be need of a better response time when reporting a BOT to the site and especially in the chat rooms.

If you had a dedicated staff member\members to only monitoring abuse reports of BOTS in chat rooms that would immediately look in to the chat room and observe the postings made by a reported BOT and remove them would help keep some of the members from being redirected to other competition sites; otherwise, the longer the BOT remains in a chat room, the more damage that can be caused in several ways; especially when it comes to paid memberships of this site.


Andrew replies on 2/26/2007 7:50 am:
Yes, all these features are available to all members - I believe that gold/silver members get more characters in their signatures.

We have two people 24/7 looking for bots in chat rooms. While we get 95% of the bots, we need to find a way that people in the chat room can block someone (e.g., if 5 people in the room block someone, they are blocked for N hours).

Another suggestion here too that might be something that could be used to "pimping up" Blogs and Groups.

A while back we were able to use some of the pure HTML tags in our postings and one that I showed to members was the Scrolling Marquee in the groups and it drew a lot of attention and helped in creating more activity amongst the members.

GoddessoftheDawn noticed that, and placed a posting in her Blog on how to doing the marquee to the Bloggers that I showed in the groups and also drew a lot of attention and became a lot of fun for the Bloggers along with the Group members.

I would think that it would be a simple process to adding the HTML Marquee to the collection of the other BBS tags such as creating tables and etc... since it is only a tag that the user browsers interpret and takes no resources away from the server such as the font tags (bold, italics, underline, color, face) and table tags.

Just an idea Andrew, I think it would be cool to seeing a Marquee on a members Blog description or on a Group of "Welcome to my Blog (title) or Group" scrolling across the screen.

The tag would be simple too. For example:

[marquee direction="right" bgcolor="0000ff" loop="1" behavior="slide" scrollamount="4" scrolldelay="87" height="5%" width="90%]Welcome to My Blog[/marquee]

There are two directions the text could scroll (right or left), the "bgcolor" would declare the color background, the "loop" number would only declare the amount of times the text would go across the screen, "scrollamount" would declare the speed of the text moving, "scrolldelay" would only declare the time between repeating "height" and "width" only defines the dimension of the Marquee. I am sure you know all of this stuff, it is just so others that don't know how the Marquee tag would work.

One thing if you take notice of, many of the members enjoy the use of the BBS tags in postings and also enjoy learning new things that are not always about sex here too

Andrew replies on 2/26/2007 8:47 am:
Yes, scolling title marquees and other html tags have not been implemented yet as they cause unfair advantage to some people when listing blogs. Hopefully, we can come up with more tags... such as the upcoming [bling 325] tags for (note: you'll see bling here this week)

Hiya Andrew... the chat room improvements sound like a great thing. This is the lowest quality chat room I've ever used, so I'm excited about the upcoming improvements.

As for moderators being able to make a post sticky.. great ! Will we also be able to "unsticky" them ? I know.. silly question, but you just never know. Another nice feature would be the ability to edit posts and new topics. There's also this bug in banning members that doesn't seem to be resolved from last fall. We should have the ability to ban a member who isn't part of our group. We've had issues with members joining a group, posting inappropriate stuff, and unjoining so they cannot be banned. And while we delete the posts, and contact CS.. it's be simpler (and less time consuming for your employees) if we could simply take care of it ourselves.

Anyways.. looking forward to the new features. Keep up the good work.

We have two people 24/7 looking for bots in chat rooms. While we get 95% of the bots, we need to find a way that people in the chat room can block someone (e.g., if 5 people in the room block someone, they are blocked for N hours).

Do you mean blocked from the chatroom?

If so there would have to be a separate table, to record current blocks, within a specific time period, thats its done on a chatroom, by chatroom basis.

I dont know much about cgi, I am more of a php person, it would have to use the cgi equivalent of count(), because using mysql_num_rows would slow things down, the code would go something like this:

if($blockedby <= 4){
fine

}elseif($blockedby >= 5){

show error, stating whatever about not being able to use the chatroom, for so many hours
exit;
}

<= is less and equals
>= is more and equals

In concern to the privacy issue about search engines and member handles that keeps being brought up.

From my knowledge, there are measures that can be taken to help in reducing the indexing of web pages that are done by the search engines robots\spiders. Still there is no guarantee of members privacy even with that.

There are HTML tags and also the robots.txt protocol that can be put in the header of web pages that would disallow or allow the robots\spider from indexing an entire website or specific files and directories; however, this will not help if a web page has already been indexed and cached by one of the search engines; therefore, there is no guarantee of privacy with that either.

For myself, I find it amusing in a way that members are so concern over this with the search engines results when typing in their handles. I could understand the alarm of this better if a member real name was appearing in the results; however, our identities are masked by a handle used (fake name).

I mean really think about it as to who is truly responsible for our privacy in what we may post on any web site. If we are posting personal information that can identify our selves to others that we wish not to knowing that we are a member of a site like this one or any other one, then that is our fault if someone finds it. If we are going around telling everyone what our handle is on a site and don't want to be known as a member of a web site as this one or some other one, it is our fault if they find information about us. Anything that we post that has anything to do with identifying us to others that we do not want to know about us or identifying us with (be it text or photos) is our responsibility to protecting our own privacy and not someone else's.

Can you explain "pause"?

PAUSE

Verb 1. pause - interrupt temporarily an activity before continuing; "The speaker paused"
hesitate
hem and haw - utter `hems' and `haws'; indicated hesitation; "He hemmed and hawed when asked to address the crowd"
scruple - hesitate on moral grounds; "The man scrupled to perjure himself"
delay - act later than planned, scheduled, or required; "Don't delay your application to graduate school or else it won't be considered"
2. pause - cease an action temporarily; "We pause for station identification"; "let's break for lunch"
intermit, break
cut off, disrupt, interrupt, break up - make a break in; "We interrupt the program for the following messages"
catch one's breath, take a breather, rest, breathe - take a short break from one's activities in order to relax
take five - take a five-minute break; "The musicians took five during the rehearsal"
take ten - take a ten minute break; "The players took ten during the long rehearsal"

pause = delay....

Well when it comes to eating crow I must say I gobble it up. I guess I've miss judged you Luv pump you and staff have improved alot of features here. And add some pretty nifty new ones as well, Although there are still a few minor glitches. But hey who's perfect except me(lol). I do have one small question though why is this site so strict about pictures in general? I for one doodle a bit and with a handle like RatMaster I'd like to post one or two of my Rat doodles. I've countless times posted photos that weren't me and they pass. Then I've post some that were actually me and they were rejected because staff said it wasn't me. I'm curious how does your staff distinguish these photos. I can post a photo of a 90 year old man and I'm 37 and it pass, but I post a photo of myself and it is rejected just don't make sense to me. Also this is a very sexually charged site so why so strict on photos to begin with?

Great more new features, shame the basic operation of the site is so flaky. It's a lottery to broadcast a cam reliably. As a paying member it's not unreasonable to expect a decent level of service.

I'm an associate mod in justwanna's group (Younger Women for Older Men). I'm also a GOLD member, and I can tell you that I'm getting REALLY annoyed at seeing that I'm banned from that group every time I sign onto the site...three times in the last 24 hours.

This kind of crap really has to stop...along with the ability of hackers to give themselves provileges even moderators don't have.

As one of the Associate Mods of JW's group its kinda hard to keep order when I get banned everyday....
With the large number of members we have for JW to have to go through & unban everyone just to have to do it again the next day I can imagine how aggravating it is. It really makes me mad that I come on here to "do my job" as an associate mod to help JW out & I can't even get to the page. Any chance this problem will be fixed soon?

It seams every time there is a change all hell breaks loose. I am a GOLD Member and and I think justwannahav1950 had to un ban me 5 times.

Frankly maybe we like the old way better, bells and whistles are nice but if they disturb the people who make this site run (The people who are active)it is not worth the aggravation.

Allot of the most active people here are ""paying members"" If your needing to be un banned from a group over and over that Paying customer may just leave because AsianMatchMate.com wants to get cleaver in there programs.

Just something to think about.

I don't much care about the flowers or the bling, & I don't think much about the 'new & exciting changes.' Why doesn't AsianMatchMate.com just fix the existing continuing problems, like people getting banned for no reason, or certain members being allowed to post rude, insulting, VERY negative, untrue, defamatory remarks in groups & NOT being banned from the site? Or groups suddenly disappearing or being 'denied' for no reason? The group mods can only do so much. I know of two who do an excellent job, by the way. Personally, in two older threads that still appear in the archives, there are posts from one person that I wrote Customer Service about because they were threatening in nature. Not only did I never hear back from them, but the posts AND the guy were allowed to remain. He is still on this site! And I was a paying member back then. Now I'm not, & I no longer have nearly the access I did when I first joined the site -- as a NON-paying member. We lowly 'standard' members used to receive a lot more benefits than we do now. Some of us just can't afford to pay, &, when we do finally decide to, the problems with the site aren't worth it. Oh, and I recently learned that everything I ever posted on this site, including my pictures, were 'Google-able!' Talk about an invasion of privacy!

I used to recommend this site to close friends. Now I do not.

Is there a way I can volunteer to be a moderator in a chat room for Bots n that????? I would be interested since we have troubles in our local chat room at times with abuse and fighting.( I also moderate my own site) There has been reports done and nothing seems to have been done about this person, and that person is still on doing the same for a few months now. While others have been banned for no reason, cause of this person reporting them...This is unfair to loose friends, while this person gets to stay on and cause troubles fighting and verbal abusing anyone or everyone in our local chatroom...Why do we have to feel unsafe and keep our mouths shut, cause we are afraid of getting attacked by this one person. This happened one to many times and still is happening still, dispite all the reports that we have all sent in...Do reports really get checked that often or what? That person has reported others n they were banned by the next day, and she still stays on...something wrong with this picture...
