  1. Anonymous STD Alerts

    To prevent the spread of STDs, it would be great to have an option to anonymously notify Grindr hookups of changes in STD status. It could be as simple as an anonymous message saying that “Someone you have hooked up with in the past 3 months has tested positive for ___ (give a drop down box of choices).” Followed by a remind to get tested.

    It is often uncomfortable or impossible to disclose a change in STD status. Therefore, this option would allow users to do it in away that makes them feel more comfortable.

    The option should allow you…

  2. Timed Messages - disappear seconds after read

    Allow user to select a setting which sets the time frame that a message exists in both users messages. User can select from a list “sent messages are” : permanent unless deleted, timed for:
    Sender can select the length of the message. Timer can begin from when message is sent, OR from when message is delivered OR from when the message is read. time remaining until message expires is known to both users

  5. Mark as unread

    Sometimes we receive messages, we read it and we’re not able to reply immediately, the messages are marked as read and then they get lost when we receive new messages from others users and we forget. It would be great a feature “mark as unread” so we can get back to them later filtering unread messages.

  10. Un-deliver messages

    Allow us to retract messages we previously sent within a chat, and replace them with "Message unsent by sender."
    This feature works great on Scruff and would be VERY valuable on Grindr.

  13. Face pic requirement to message option

    Torso pics are fun to look at. I would to have an option to make it mandatory to have or send a face pic to chat. Again, this would be an option. I’d even pay for it.

  16. Archiving Conversations

    I don't like to delete conversations, because I don't want to message the same people again and I like to know when someone has already messaged me before. However it's so annoying sifting through thirty duds to find the one guy I was interested in. We should have a mechanism to hide conversations without deleting them.

  17. Colour choice within messages

    Some people have mental disorders/neurodevelopmental types, ADHD, ADD etc as well as Dyslexia. The chat colour bubbles do not help people with these conditions and in fact, could agitate said disorders. Can we please see customizable colours, so that people will feel more at ease with chosen colours. Not all gay men are able-bodied and some gay men have hidden mental health conditions. Lets really talk about equality and make all men equal and not just the next top model! Thank you. It would also help elder gay males and men with sight issues. Thank you!

  18. Swipe through sent photos

    When we click on a photo we sent in a chat, we should be able to swipe through all the other photos we've sent, just like we can swipe through all the photos we've received. Having to open each photo one by one is a hassle. Please keep the 'sent' and 'received' photos separate, just make both groups swipable. Thank you

  19. At risk of sounding pedantic, messages highlighted with “chatted x hours ago” suggests a two way conversation. It should say “messaged x hou

    Within messages it says “chatted x mins/hours ago” even if it’s only that message has been sent and no reply has been received.

    “Chatted” suggests a two way conversation.

    When a message has been sent but no reply has been received it should say “you messaged this person x mins/hours ago” , when a response has been received and the recipient has responded it should say “chatted x mins/hours ago”.

    Thankyou muchly
