People who pay should be promoted around the area
I think people who pay should be seen more than new faces. New faces are fine and they should have their own page but the Grindr Extra members who live in a certain area should be shown on the top of the profiles screen.

Grindr is expensive. I don't think we should be promoting those who can pay a premium price over regular users. Seems a bit elitist. There used to be a Boost option wherein you paid to have your profile at the top of the results for a time but they seem to have removed this function, it was pretty short lived.
