    Just need to point out that guys without pics are often those who have had bad experiences from others on Grindr like being stalked or a jealous ex etc aide from the usual.

    Also, there are some drop-dead gorgeous intelligent guys around and (yes I've met the odd one) they withhold their pics because they are looking for a deeper more meaningful connection and are fed up with people who just see their looks and are after their bodies without consideration of their minds.... as one put it to me: " I know I can pull and I get swamped with a pic but if I don't put up a pic and hold off I know the other person is genuinely interested in me as a person if they are still chatting to me after 15 minutes without seeing my face, body or ****."

    Keep up the NPNC thing by all means, but it's your funeral!

    Not needed. There is no way of verifying anyone nowadays and many need discretion and who want to confirm their identity anyway given that the other person could be a scammer.

    It's up to the individual regarding photos, I ask the other person to send me a "proof" photo in a particular pose like holding a cup or touching an ear even if they have one on their profile.

    I have recently been scammed by somebody asking for fare money to travel to London to meet me. I transferred it into his bank account. Over two days of conversation he apologised for postponing then asked for the fare money again. He was using a photo of a model as his face-pic and was very polite and easy to talk to and had given me his phone number which we never used,. However, I explained that I was not happy with that then I suggested I would gladly pay it if he sent me a proof pic of him touching his face so I knew he was genuine.

    At the the words "This User Is No Longer Online" appeared and his profile and the chat disappeared.

    Along with that his bank account details and phone number disappeared along with other evidence.

    This is an unbelievable irresponsible state of affairs.and an abuse of ones right to retain a record of ones own conversations. It is quite clear this person is scamming many and can get away with it because Grindr assists him in destroying the evidence when he decides.

    This problem is not just confined to criminals. It could be somebody suicidal or in a medical predicament or in danger No legitimate decent person is going to delete mid-chat without warning.

    Please can we change this so that when someone deletes their profile their conversations remain at least for a period of time with the other person they are talking to.

    "March 05, 2020 00:29" and "May 05, 2019 07:58 "

    Three moronic posting. from saddos looking for racism so they can virtue-signal.

    This is a dating site. Ethnicity brings with is questions of physical characteristics that are a turn on or tuirn off, cultural aspects that may make it impossible to progress. The ability to filter out those one is not interested in is mutually beneficial rather than wasting time introducing and for that reason the more information the better.

    Many people don't post up pics and some don't want to send them. They have their reasons and I respect them. I'm not bothered by race but I respect the fact that others personal tastes are raise relevant and oh yes, you bigots who claim that it is racist to need to know ethnicity need to take on board that on a site like this it is very often somebody seeking a race other than their own.

    I do not agree that it should be a required field but it really helps and the reason for putting you ethnicity in is simply not to have your time wasted by eliminating the uninterested from even messaging you.

    It's that simple.

    Honestly, I've never seen so much negativity from so many. Instead of using the "about" section to post useful informative stuff about themselves and what they want Grindr is plagued with loads of negative moaning out their petty prejudices, dislikes and what and who they don't want or like. Gay life should be uplifting and positive. A large section of the profiles on here make us look like a bunch of moaning miserable old women.

    Hypocrites too: Half the "No Pic No Chat" dictats come from those showing obscured faces.

    Um leaving aside the "above your preferred age aspect" the answer is quite simple. Introduce a compulsory default whereby a profile must contain the persons age and their age range. When that is done you can then have a setting, default or optional, whereby only those within your age range can message you. You can even hide your own age and age range because people will only be able to see mutually compatible profiles.

    I might add that rather than being draconian or discriminatory, blocking those outside of age ranges is a help because it eleminate pursuing those who will not be interested in the end.

    This could be an Extra feature of open for everyone.

    You make it compulsory for everyone to enter bother their age and your age range but with the option of hiding both.. read on.

    You then have an automatic filtering out of profiles outside of ones preferred age range in the cascades/front page.

    This means that nobody will be messaged by or message someone outside of their mutual age range.

    This feature could be applied to other features like tribes.

    The answer to this is spiffingly cool.

    1) Make it compulsory to put in your age and your age range.

    2) Fix Grindr so that everyone outside of your age range (can be or) is automatically blocked from those whose age range they fall outside of.

    This will ensure that when anyone logs on EVERYONE on their page is both within their age range and vice versa..

    Hows abouts that then.

    I don't like the block idea because many youngers will often step out of their age range to experiment. I got it on Gaydar a lot, teenagers whose age range fell twenty years below mine feeling kinky *****.

    Far better to have a compulsory field of age range to fill in then we can all be flexible yet know the other person limit.

    Gotta admit though that many off us oldies are creepy and can suddenly "turn" like if you are young a conversation that starts with "You're cute" can turn rather suddenly to "You've got a lot to learn."

    My profile has lost the facility to search within my preferred age range or to state it. By the same token it would appear others have lost the same because I am now finding that most of my responses are from people I clearly have no interest in compared to before while my screen is cluttered up with many people out of my range. This has happened about a week ago. Can this be seen to because either I'm wasted most of my contacts time or they are wasting mine.

    Bad idea. You'll just get more lying. Far better to make ones age range compulsory to show on ones profile which saves those too young or too old from firing blanks

    I just discovered that I cannot contact someone who is 40 miles away because I have no subscribed. I have NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER with that.

    However, if he (or anyone else) looks me up from a distance and wants to contact me they cannot if they are not XTRA.

    From their perspective this may seem totally reasonable but from mine there is a problem. Going XTRA should ensure that I can communicate with anyone over any distance but if they cannot communicate with me then I am being denied potential contact despite paying.

    I would suggest it is changed to deny non-payers from contacting each other only over distance but allow then to only contact those on XTRA, even if it ups the fee a little because paying XTRA should make one accessible to all you wish to contact you irrespective of whether they are XTRA or not otherwise you are still short despite paying.

    As an older user can I suggest a compulsory "Age Range" field on profiles so that I know who is disinterested in my age at a glance. It would save a lot of awkwardness and unpleasantness This should have no default setting, i.e. you must manually put up, because in the days of Gaydar with it's 18-99 default, people were constantly saying I was too old when my contacting them was based on their being too arsed to change the 18-99 age range default.

    Gender/Femme shaming? I thought this was a GAY MEN'S dating app? I know from many that the issue is not women or gender but the hijacking of the App thus crowding out a fair nuber of potential profiles in a limited space.

    How about the trans people have their own site/app/space. People aren't transphobic, just ****** off at many of the limited nukber of profiles available being hijacked by hordes of trans non-gay people (as well and beggars and druggies)so we get less choice.

    The misused pronouns are self-descriptive. If someone want to describe themselves in a certain way that should be respected, especially by trans of all people!

    Dunno what the pronouns field is there for. It's idiotic. Over 95% of the users are liars by failing to post the truthful I/Me/Mine.

    No need for that. You just ask them to send another pic holding a cup or touching a cheek or something
