Hi all I just noticed that they have removed the free week earned for 10 comments on your blog???? I must be slow .. when did this happen? They have replaced it with getting a free month for a published article!! Now not too bad an idea if you can see what is written there in the articles, got to admit us ladies do like to read such stuff BUT you cant read them unless you are a member !!! Think its a bad move to lose the free week for the blogs, most of us that blog are women, and dont or will not pay for memberships anyway. Lose the women from the site and you have nothing!!!


Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

The guidelines for getting a freebie are hilarious! "10 veritable scammers you report = 1-month bonus gold membership"... Honestly, if I had accrued 10 scammers it would seriously make me question how well this site was being regulated and I really don't think I'd want to be a part of it! Isn't this just an admission that LF has no control over who joins - or rather that they don't care so long as the fee gets paid?! "Help us check problem profiles - 25 profiles with contact information, inappropriate photos or business ads => 1-month bonus gold membership"... OK so I've seen a few dodgy profiles, but to find 25 you would likely have to search through 10 times that many. does LF not have the software to filter these? Do the profiles not get read before they are allowed through?? If they want to put me on the payroll and give me access to the technology I'll sort it out, lol, but isn't this site supposed to be managed/controlled?? "Write promotional articles or press release about our new / special feature or your success experience on our site. - Your article is published => 2-month bonus gold membership"... OK - make this site worth shouting about and we'll be happy to give you some free publicity ..... not sure about doing a feature on my success to get free membership. After all, if I'd been successful in meeting my partner on here, why the heck would I want to join a dating site?!! Aaah maybe it's just me but it's all making me less keen by the day!

I have benefitted in the past from the free week's membership - it was a good thing and certainly seemed to keep the blogs more active. However, I would be happy to pay for membership (controversial eh??!!) if when I did a search for guys in the UK I saw new and interesting fellas there that I wanted to contact. Instead all I seem to see is: * the same old faces who haven't updated their profiles or pics for many years * faceless wonders with minimal profile info * guys looking for "no strings fun" * guys with overtly sexual screen names of tag lines that I wouldn't want to touch with someone elses! LF - maybe it's time to stop making needless and unhelpful tweaks to the site and address the real issue of getting rid of the old/inactive members and encouraging fresh new ones?

Read from the bottom up ( now now get your mind out of the .... ) Hello, Thanks for the reply, now I have another question. I can't find anything to explain what an "FYI free week" means. Please fill me in. What I don't see anymore is a note that says if you have 10 quality comments on your blog you get a free week on Large Friend. Is the FYI Free Week the same thing? if so, is it still available? If so where is the notice? Thanks, Natalie Aimee FLA ------------------------------------------------------------ LargeFriends wrote: >Dear Member, > >Thanks for your email. Do you mean the blog "F.Y.I Free Week"? Or another >one? Please let us know more details about your problem. > > >Have a nice day! > >Customer service >Successfulmatch / Largefriends.com > >>aimeefla: Hi, >> I was just reading the blogs and a few of us noticed that the free week >> for 10 comments on one blog is no longer offered. Is it going to be offered again ?

Hi Oz,smoosh and butterbll, I wonder IF, when they made some changes,upgrades and put new pages up they simply neglected to re-post the Free week for 10 comments on one blog. Has anyone written to support? I'd think that when the blogs have "dried up" it would be more important to have a free week. I also think it was a summer seasonal thing. Yes? okay I'll write to support yeah yeah :-) I'll send the reply and post it here. They are generally very good and quick with replies. Natalie :-) ( Yeah I was also missing but I'm back now )

They already have nothing as the blogs diminish. No one can try before they buy as no incentive plan. But I guess the recession hits everything as the belts tighten to people's spending to the freebies/discounts by retailers. I also think the scammers increase in the all mighty bid for the mighty buck. The free week has been gone for over a month at least - btw - only cause I was looking for it some time ago. Hope you're doing well!


Hey Smoosh, how you doing, hope all is well with you too? Well you can see how much attention I am taking these days LOL All good but very busy having a good time dating and meeting new people. So sad that thigs seem to be dying here miss the lively chatter. Would like to think that everyone has found their match but I doubt it.
