    So I got this e-mail from DList today. I totally forgot I used to have a profile on this site like 5 years ago. It sucked ass. Basically you didn't stand a chance if you were over 25 and not shirtless in one of your pics. It deserves to go down. Although way to go for promoting Manhunt icon_rolleyes.gif

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DList will be closing our big gay doors on December 31, 2011.

    We've had a lot of fun hanging out with everyone these past years, but all good things must come to an end.

    Some of you may be thrilled we're leaving (jerks!) and others may be sad (we're sorry!), but we'd like to answer some of your questions.

    Why are you going away?
    DList started back in 2006, when the world of social networking was still in its infancy. Facebook was still exclusively for college students and had limited privacy options. Myspace was booming but if you didn’t want to be totally out to everyone you were out of luck. There were very limited options for gay guys to be themselves online---places where you could freely discuss your late night trysts, random crushes, and anything else about your life as a gay man, from the mundane to the most fascinating.

    Fast forward to the end of 2011. Facebook has more than 800 million users, including your mom, your boss, some childhood friends, and just about everyone else you encounter. They’ve even added somewhat decent privacy filters so that you can be your best and worst self to different crowds of people in your life. While MySpace is practically dead, new social networking experiences like Twitter and Tumblr have entered the game and flourished. And, well, there just isn’t as much of a need anymore for DList. Two other large, exclusively gay social sites have closed their doors over the past year too, and we don’t think it’s a coincidence. Without as much interest or need, we just can’t keep the community going as a vital, vibrant, sexy and fun place to express yourself. And no one wants to be a bore.

    So here comes the difficult part: The time has come where we have to shut the lights off at DList headquarters. Don't panic! We'll provide you with a sufficient amount of time to trade contact information and say your goodbyes to one another. But this is still the end of an era.
    What happens next?
    DList will continue to function like normal until the new year. After that point, our servers will cease to operate.
    What about personal information?
    We will only use your data to provide updates about the current state of affairs regarding DList. Once our servers go down, we will not retain any information beyond your email address (in case we decide to embark on another fabulous adventure). Rest assured we will not share your data with anyone; even if they get us drunk in a fancy bar.
    I still want to meet guys! What do I do now?
    We think you should join Manhunt! It's our partner site and there are millions of hot guys on it.

    We'd like to thank you for making these last five years so great. Who knows? Maybe we'll see you on our next big project...

    Signing off,

    — Todd, Mike, Tim & your DList team

    I am fearing a flood of gay myspace-like profiles and personalities coming soon to RJ.

    "End of an Era"?

    That phrase doesn't seem appropriate for that email.

    Dahas saidI think DList just called you a jerk on your birthday pocketnico.



    It is probably just a kindly worded way to get rid of him since at 26 he is now a senior citizen by dlist standards.

    No shit! What a day they chose to send me that e-mail. I guess looking like a twink isn't good enough if my ID says otherwise? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I haven't logged on to that site since early 2007. I don't even remember my old username and password!

    I think their domain name is probably the most valuable asset they have. Someone most likely offered them a nice bag of cash for it. Otherwise, they could have just kept going, even with low traffic.

    The site sucks anyway. Like I said before, it's basically just a site to search for twink eye candy. Most of the boys on there are 18-23 with plenty of shirtless and underwear pics. Anyone outside the criteria isn't welcome!

    However, I did find out about quite a few guys from high school through that site! That was amusing. Some guys I never suspected as gay, so they were a surprise.

    Hey guys,

    I really just found this site because I got the dlist e-mail and was googling which other 2 sites tanked when I came across this forum.

    Is this site for like "REAL JOCKS?" only and the average will be ostracized out?

    Or is it more like manhunt and adam4adam, which in Houston, they don't like asians. (personal opinion- that's why I'm getting the heck out of there!)

    anyways.......

    KC

    But seriously, no there is alot of different types on here, just be reasonably into athletics, or working out, or nutrition, or yoga, or hiking, or outdoors, or SOMETHING besides hair tinting and Lady Gaga...exclusively.

    Thanks guy, The only thing I do consistently and actively is yoga. . Does that count? I do power yoga, so there is strength training in there.

    I can't stand the gym
    1. hate weights
    2. intimidated by muscle

    But never considered myself a jock! LOL

    Thanks for the welcome!

    From a year on d-list the only thing I got out of it, when they still had music on individual pages, was ID'ing the song "Flaunt It" by TVrock well before the advent of the Shazam app to accomplish the same thing

    That site blew. I have made better friends on Grindr.

    I saw this coming when I first got my profile on there. It's just a flood of... crap with a whole lot of fake profiles so some lonely guy can feel good for getting some attention.

    I have one, but I've never really used it properly. They're asking people to change to Manhunt now instead.

    Eh, I'm sorry to see it go. I made a number of "internet chat" type friends on there. For the most part, guys were nice and the douche bags you encounter you can just ignore. It was something different.

    I do admit it was a nicer place when it first started up then what it had become.

    I was sad for see Connexion disappear (well, sad for like 2 seconds) but good riddance to dlist. It was as self absorbed as only a teenager can be.

    I'm sad to see Dlist go, I liked that site, and met a few really cool guys from that. Is there any place to gay nonhookup sites? Or will they slowly disappear?

    That's all DList seemed to be to me most of the time.
