    Hi everyone,
    on RJ, it used to say that so and so was "LAST ON" at:
    1. Today;
    2. Yesterday;
    3. A few days ago;
    4. A week ago;
    5. Two weeks ago;
    6. Within the last month;
    7. Over a month ago.

    Unfortunately, they have changed it so the maximum length of time is a week ago so that the newest folks to join the site do not realize that most of the accounts have been abandoned for several years!

    The sheer majority of accounts have been on here for 5+ years and we never heard back from guys even if we wrote them years ago or recently.

    RJ WEBMASTERS: please purge any profiles that are abandoned from 1+ years ago. Otherwise, everyone gets more disappointment and frustration than whatever brought them here in the first place. None of the folks who learn the majority of the site is abandoned will ever purchase an account and they will just leave their site to become yet another abandoned account. No one benefits from all of that false hope!

    It would be best if you could display the factual last date that members visited their profile.

    I want to meet my Mr. Right, but I have wasted year after year and it just does not seem as if I shall ever find my Mr. Right! Later this summer, I hit 50-years of age.

    In our gay culture, it seems that once a man hits 30-years of age, he is more likely to die as a lonely spinster than find his Mr. Right as our society worships youth over intelligence and wisdom.

    That is why we turned to RJ as we all want someone into our lives, but the site helps no one with abandoned accounts. Please find the courage to delete the old pages/profiles.

    Discouraged and disappointed!

    Lonely in Louisville, KY!

    I think this site could use a bit of a house cleaning in terms of some web dev stuff and old defunct users and threads and topics. How about a mobile-friendly stylesheet? An app?

    I've seen some people shamed for posting topics that were already posted, but what good does that do? So you can see what 58 people with deleted accounts said in 2007? So you can click their now dead links?

    Wow. I had no idea anybody was doing maintenance on this site...

    Or maybe some clock just got reset a week ago...?

    Deletion of old profiles would be counter-productive to the admins. as concerns revenue. There are active profiles of men here that died years ago.

    How would that do anything to revenue? Most of the ads on this site are FOR this site, or they are for non-profits. I think those are typically displayed gratis whenever a paid ad isn't placed for some reason. I guess that depends on the ad service, though. The few ads that are here can't possibly be monetizing that much...

    No, he's complaining about the granularity displayed for Last Active. It's been this way for over a year at least, maybe it changed when they changed the color scheme.

    Everything you said will devalue this site. If they were truthful about the dwindling number of members here, they wouldn't be able to sell it. Or attract new members.

    If you really want to meet guys in your area, just sign up for OK Cupid or something.

    You're really scraping the bottom of the barrel for chat/dates if "more than a week/more than a month" inactive even makes a difference! icon_lol.gif
