To help weed out the spam users, fakes, and flakes, grindr should have some sort or rating system for 2 things.
1- if the person flaked or showed up
2- Did they send pics that actually look like them
there should be one button that either party hits confirming they are meeting (this would also help track down the hate crime on here). Do the ratings by stars or a 1-10 scale.

One1.-So block out any pics sent from anyone and allow us to click it and hit view photo so we can actually consent to unsolicited nudes. Two2-. Also also a feature to see if and how many people have blocked the person messaging you. Cause that's for safety as well.
Three 3-. Also a rating system so people who actually meet the stranger can review them and rate so people know they are safe before meeting. I've met some sketch meanies before so that feature would help. I just want our community safe and not scary or harmful. Thank you.

Please let us report someone who blocked us. We cannot see the chat and the profile anymore but i bet you can. If there was an online chat for example, i cold tell the bot to report my last chat even if he block me, right? Please work on this, he could convince me to send him nudes but i could save other people if i can report him even if he blocks me.
Idea is really to secure because the app in the region is used very badly. No more fake profiles. I get horrible experienced. Some guy forcing some with thread that they know where i live, I would never meet in a bar people there and now I get psycho at my door and teenager collecting dick pic…

Rate the user after dating him if he deserves a five stars or one star if he safe to be around with or dangerous so the people can check the rating of each person weather to meet and date or just to skip the date

Creation of a performance evaluation table, such as 0 to 5 stars, allowing the evaluation of users with permission from both, after the meeting.
Getting the highest rated users would receive a bonus or a promotion - with limited time.
In this way, it could be possible to improve encounters and motivate users to commit to their performance during the encounter.
The application was going to become much more interesting

There are many people who don’t show their face on video call, and try to cheat the other person, and some also use foul language if you reject them on the basis of their looks. So I would like to suggest a rating button so that people can rate a particular profile on basis of their behaviour towards others. Using this rating other users can get a better idea weather to approach that particular profile or not. A poor rating means not trustworthy profile, a good rating means a trust worthy profile and can be approached.!

a suggestion: it would be interesting if there was a history of profile photos, in this way the users themselves would know how to identify possible fakes.
Like other platforms where an user is able to leave a good review if he met the other person, Grindr could be the only app running this feature and improve it to the point that for example when users are next to each other the app unlock the feature to verify the other user , leave a good or bad review(if the case that person is prone to cause trouble).
I would feel so much confident when Im about to meet someone that I know it's not using old pictures or if he's likeable.

Have a simple rating system that other members could leave a simplified review about
Said profile, giving user's the ability to leave a simplified review about a user they have enough enteraction w ie multiple messages and maintaining proximity. almost like a yelp review but very basic and short
Like after user's have interacted they are given the option to review their experiences and both user's have the option to leave a simplified review
With basic details ie:
Looks like their pix #1
Wasted my time / no show / flake #2
Was good time #3
2nd date material #4
Husband material #5
Danger bad news #6
So on so fourth and have the categories averaged out to give a score that other members can view to get a feel for the kind of person their chatting with.
Have it be almost like a yelp rating but maintaining the user's anonymity and not disclosing their permiscuoty so like the 5 most recent confirmed face to face meetings user gets a prompt to verify their interactions
Ie within or under 5ft proximity for one minute minimum and then they are given the option to review these profiles...
that once verified Ie: user maintained contact w/ or was in proximity to for certain duration their then given a simple survey to submit for previous interactions
Please block fake members from messaging with men.net etc. It's extremely aggravating and a complete waste of everyone's time
User should be given a score based on a variety of predefined criteria (such as responsiveness, respectfulness, Follow-Through with plans, picture accuracy, or profile accuracy) that others can rate.
Users ratings of others ratings can be weighted differently. Assuming a score out of 5 for each category, If a user usually rates others with low scores across the board with the highest ever given being a 3, you can adjust the ratings to actually be higher. The same can be done in reverse for people who always rate high. Photofeeler.com has a rating system like that
User scores will help facilitate more positive meetups with good people and weeding our potentially negative or dangerous situations. Users with low scores should be monitored for being spam, or bad conduct that violates rules.
At some level of low score, if a user is determined to be real and operating in accordance with rules, a user should be directed to resources for communication tips and dating advice that must be completed before he can chat again with users. These will be opportunities to boost their score to a high enough level.
adding a thumbs up / down counter to profiles to help weed out time wasters and creeps

I would have liked to rate somebody's profile after I meet them. From 1 to 5 stars. We can see who's the best to meet by the average rate they have received, and we can quickly identify the fishy profiles that are fake.
Everybody should be able to vote on what they think each other's credibility or honesty rating is. Too many people on here are flakes and only on here for fantasy sexting or they set up a date just to disappoint the person. The rating would show an average of what people think of them and if they are truthful and trustworthy.
A feature to allow users to anonymously rate other users they’ve been chatting to to help others fish through time wasters and creeps. Instead of a numerical scale, users could be rated by key words. Key words might include: “Had a good time”, “big ****”, “Good conversation”, “Relationship quality”, “troll”, “fake profile”, “time waster”, etc. Allow users to rate people they’re chatting to by selecting all that apply and display a chart on their profile. This will discourage people from time wasting and being nasty to others, and help others to sort through those who are a bit of a ****!
