  1. Full screen ad problem

    Full screen ads are fine. Full screen ads that have a timer til the x button appears are fine too. FULL SCREEN ADS WITH NO WAY TO CLOSE ARE NOT OKAY. The process in which you review the ads allowed in your app needs some work.

  2. LOCALIZED RANDOM VIDEO CHAT FEATURE

    Think of a chatroulette style video feature but localized within xx miles. This is obviously the future of apps of this nature. This will also come with an in-app currency that could be traded to each other during PRIVATE VIDEO CHAT ONLY.

  3. Two-way blocking

    If I block someone because I work with them, I can still see their face and title. Colleagues who blocked me can still see mine - very awkward! Block it both ways.

    If you need a way to distinguish between people that you've blocked, use the time blocked or reason for blocking.

  4. Photo moderators

    You need a better way to approve or deny photos. Once a photo has been approved, it should stay approved. I shouldn’t have a photo taken down a year or so after it’s been up. If it makes it through your crappy screening process it can’t be that bad. I don’t want dick pics up as main profile pics. But heaven forbid showing more than 2” below your bellybutton.

    My suggestion is consistency and valid reasons why something is denied.

  5. Follow the same guidelines for all profile pics

    When I go to post a picture of my chest, which fades darker the further down it goes - thus, never revealing anything below the belly button, it is denied because it is “sexually suggestive”, but another user one mile away has not one, but 2 profile pics where he is completely nude except for a tiny pink thong outlining his package. Another one I have tried to get approved is a picture of a woman walking down the middle of a road with a popsicle stick in her mouth, and that one is denied because it’s somehow “drug related??”…

  6. Global Block

    I think when you block an account, the device which that account is being used on should be blocked as well. Meaning, if I block someone and they sign into a new account, they’ll be already blocked from the new account. I am getting sick of blocking people and them signing into a new account to send me hateful messages.

  7. Explain the block

    Using the same system that most players use, the report, explain why the block was applied is not only more clear as well as doubtless for the one that was blocked.
    Ex:
    - block - inconvenient
    - block - bulliyng
    - block - not interesting
    - block - annoying

    In addition, sending a message to the one that was blocked instead of just disapearing, is something that should be in the app

  10. Allow users to block profiles using certain phrases that they find offensive.

    Allow users to block profiles that use words or phrases that they find offensive, such as racist, ageist, transphobic, etc. a user can ID an offensive word or phrase and block and profile that uses them. Profiles are unlocked when the words/phrases are deleted.

  14. Stop 'disconnected' when it is clearly not a network issue

    Getting really bored of the 'disconnected' ******** now. 6 months, 3 different phones and multiple wifi connections but that BS ststus message keeps appearing. Therefore it's a grindr issue. Fix it.

  16. Enforce consent etiquette when sending nsfw pictures

    Too many of the older gays on this app seem to think violating peoples consent is okay because "this is grindr get over it"
    A lot of people would would appreciate the option to report those for failing to ask for consent before sending their nudes.
    Alternatively a blur option similar to what facebook messenger does for messages coming from unfamiliar profiles where any images sent are automatically censored and its then up to the user to choose to view the image or not.

  17. Restrict Pictureless Profiles

    Profiles without any public pictures should not be able to send messages to members who do. These profiles are a pain.

    It can be taken one step further by making verified public face photos only accessible for viewing as long as the viewing profile has a verified public face picture as well. No tug of war over who sends first.

  18. Users not having their real face pictures

    It should be mandatory that users must have a picture of their face because it’s annoying that users can see how you look but you can’t see how they look.

  19. Filter fake profiles

    Figure out some way to block these idiots who send messages, show as offline, then claim they can’t see your message and ask you to text them. I’ve blocked over 100 of them in the last two weeks. I report them every time but nothing seems to be changing.
