    I wanted to say how much I love the changes to the site. The black background with the white lettering is dynamite!!!!!

    Have to say, I’m digging most of the visual changes too. There was a little slide show type of thing up top for a day or so that I thought was great as well, especially keeping in mind the new added focus on appealing to new/“vanilla” women. Not sure it’s there anymore, but I’ve been in the phone only. Either way, gray and orange happen to be my favorite colors so that’s a happy coincidence too.

    Only thing of note is I’ve experienced a marked slow down. But we have new phones and a new ISP/equipment recently that I haven’t had time to swap out. So it could be that. Not sure.

    Either way, well done.

    Thanks :) The speed drop is because the patient is on the table sort of speak. Making changes has the side effect that caches are broken, and will have to be rebuild. I do that a l.ot but then I install new features over again, and there you go.
    Regarding the slideshow , so yes it was for the purpose of attracting vanilla, but the current Themes does not support this particular slideshow. I will come up with something to substitute for it - for sure.

    Good catch ... needs to be reported to who ever is tweaking the themes ... if you switch to the dark theme it is there :)

    Not really used the site much before. Seems to work ok. Was really slow yesterday.

    Whenever you change something you’re going to get ‘friction’

    WHY ARE YOU OUTING PEOPLE HERE????

    There is a flag next to my name. I never entered any nationality. Why are you exposing metadata like this, You are outing people who don't want to be outed.

    This is not a safe place anymore!!!

    Thank you for bringing that to our attention Andrew. We can understand that some would prefer not to show where their IP address is based and will look at the parameters of the flags and see how to best utilise the options available.

    It's not so much about caring where one's IP is based - although that may well be how the flag is initiated.
    It's about people caring that their privacy is maintained, as well as perhaps any of a number of other issues.

    If I choose to keep my location private, then I wouldn't expect a web forum to be displaying it without my having given permission for it. Especially on a site such as this.

    Personally I'm happy to share that I'm in London - but I dont want a flag next to my name - unless it's a rainbow flag. Flags have too many nationalistic associations these days, particularly the Union Jack. It gets appropriated by the most unpleasant groups, and I want no association with them - in any form.
    I dare say Andrew has his own reasons, but I hope I've given another example of why great care needs to be taken.

    Sadly something that was designed with the intention to show what an internationally inclusive place CM has become seems to have had the opposite effect. As previously mentioned, we shall look into the parameters involved.

    I think the aim is good, but is there perhaps a way of separating it from individual members - and display something instead as a group info-graphic on the home page?

    I remember that too, I don't remember anyone complaining back then either.
    If flags and red shoes is all they have to bitch about then they truly blessed.

    I love the new look & feel and all of the changes. I use the on-on-one chat a lot to chat privately with the friends that I have developed here. Can anything be done to improve the speed and reliability of the chat function (not the chatrooms). At times, things work great, but other times, what I write and send is never shown or received. It get pretty frustrating to have a dialogue. (I wouldn't mind paying a fee for use, BTW!)

    Once the site moves to the new server it was solve the speed problem.
    Also the lady in red heels is a place holder and will change at some point Its TEMPORARY.
    Its been explained there will be problems while the updates are being introduced.
    Jens has said this more than once.
    All thats need now is a little patience and let the guy get on with improving the site.
