Stop automatic refreshing
Sometimes when I return to the thumbnail feed after viewing a profile or using another app, I see a guy that I want to message, but then the feed automatically refreshes and the guy disappears :( Sometimes, if I am lucky I can find him again after searching carefully, but most of the time he is completely lost. This has caused me SO much frustration. PLEASE end this!
(A possible alternative to automatic refreshing would be to make a 'refresh' icon hover at the top of the feed/screen when it comes time to refresh, but allow us USERS to click on it when we are ready. No more lost connections PLEASE!)
In early versions the auto refresh was selectable from settings. Why did you remove this option?
I just posted this issue, not realizing it's already here. Yes, I agree, the auto refresh is annoying when you are part way down the feed and then have to start all over.

Yes! This is super annoying! These auto-refreshes cause me to lose my place in the feed.
Stop refreshing the grid every 10 seconds. My grid refreshes every 10 seconds. It's quite annoying
Please stop the auto-refresh and let the user click an icon refresh. Many times I'm near the end of the thumbnails and Grindr auto-refreshes and I have to start all over from the top. It's annoying.
Thanks for your consideration.
Yes please STOP with the auto-refresh. Be like IG or Twitter which just gives a "new posts" message you can choose to tap to refresh. I have to imagine this is also a source of unnecessary battery drain, which the devs should keep in mind too.
When I look at a profile and go back to the thumbnails, the thumbnail page refreshes, sending me back to the top of the list practically every time. So I have to scroll & scroll & scroll down to find where I was before. At the least, it should go back to about where I was before and NOT go to the top. Or have an option for user to control when to refresh. Very frustrating!
