I can appreciate this site is run by volunteers but feels like it's being left behind. Would love to be able to post GIFs or photos in the forum or even just being able to send a video clip in the DMs would be a good feature

I was thinking more between friends but I could imagine the toll that would take on a woman's inbox

I love the old school forum vibe. The site is dated though. But it's a big no for public unsolicited pictures and gifs, if you want that, use those other places. Just modernising the look and feel a bit, add emoji support, and if it aint fixed don't worry about it

Nope. I hate forums and comments sections filled with stupid little gifs and an inbox full of men wanking their cock does not appeal one bit.

With social media so crammed with features these days, I actually like the old-skool simplicity of the forums.

Maybe the odd tweak, but I like it as it is.

It's a graphics format, used a lot for animated images.

Being able to search categories in the hotlist would be a bonus for us! Nothing extreme but to filter through couples /females/males could be handy at times! Heard of a few people suggesting likes / comments on statuses in the past but not sure if that would be too Facebook-Esque in reality

God no .The forums would just be full of GIFs then all the time and thanks but I don't want video clips sent to me in DMs either. So no it wouldn't appeal to me at all.

Yes the site needs a face-lift and perhaps an updating of the platform but some of the stuff suggested turns it into a swingers version of Facebook or Instagram.

It's bad enough getting unsolicited dick photos in messages without giving some profiles on here additional methods of sending unwanted photos or videos to others.

While I've have not always liked, they can be useful to get across a quick point. And did think this place needs a revamp of the emojis available. There should at least be a fingers up emoji!

We have been life time members of another site for 20 years.

A site which by continuous updates is now complete and utter crap.

This simple cash cow ( look up their accounts) works and works well.

No need to change.

Definitely agree with no GIFs as these just add further clutter.

But face lift adding a bit colour to the site itself if possible would be nice x

I'd like a wider screen layout. The desktop site is too focused on pleasing phone users, as there is too much wasted space.

Desktop layout should be landscape not portrait.

Be good to save messages before you send them and the text editing could be better when using it on your phone. Emojis in messages often don't work, not sure if that's an android to iPhone thing though.

And emojis so people could use on a person's comments as this would save space replying to a comment and leaving few emojis more room for the thread

Agreed. It could do with modernisation, but imho those 'features' are more likely to cause more damage to the site than improve it.

Nah its because the emojis use essentially a different language to your phone ones so the site doesnt understand them

A spell-checker would be nice and the ability to edit not just delete for a certain time on forum posts

Was meaning the one available by the site so it would be available to use against a comment similar to Facebook comments

But the phone GUI is completely different to the desktop one. Agree that the desktop GUI needs a looking at though.

Wherever you want me

I use the mobile version and like it, but the desktop version is very outdated in its appearance, not necessarily in its features, just the look, but that can be updated easily surely?? What I would like is to be able to comment on someones status, directly to them, but not as a formal message, just a reply to the staus itself, so if some of me says "anyone free tonight" you could just click it and respond???

Weirdly, I've just read an article about research into the elderly disliking change. It says the older you get, the less able and likely you are to embrace change.. even if it's good for you.

Combine that with the average swinger age in Britain being somewhere between 45 and 50, and I think you have your answer.....

No.
