From the point of view of a FREE MEMBER
In a nutshell: Lots of winks/icebreakers PLUS
there is some free messaging to fellow free members but you need to do a wee bit
of 'Tagging' to earn this right.
The purposes of our (new) messaging rules are to
a) Generate more 'dating opportunities' by getting all free members do some
Tagging (see bottom of Yes-No-Maybe for explanation)
b) Give a greater incentive for you to contact FULL members
Here are your opportunities to communicate as a
1. You can always reply to full members
If a FULL member writes to you (or even if they just wink at you) then you are
able to reply without any further ado.
...Hint: Vice-versa if you upgrade then all free members can contact you! ;-)
You now have *lots* of winks and icebreakers that you can send to both full and
...The idea is you can send loads of these out to tempt interest in your
3. Quota of 'Direct Send' free messages
Thirdly - if you want to proactively send *messages* then you will be given
a DAILY QUOTA of free messages. You earn this quota by doing a small amount
of tagging every week.
Tag 3 people a
week as Yes/Maybe > you earn the right to
message FULL MEMBERS
Quota = FOUR messages a day to full members.
Hint: If you use up your quota - actively search out and wink at full members -
as if they wink/write back then messaging unlocks between you
Tag 7 people a week
as Yes/Maybe > you earn the right to
message FREE MEMBERS
Quota = ONE message a day to free members
We want you to tag people genuinely.
If you are a very fussy person and cannot find 7 good new people each week -
then simply re-tag some of the existing people you have tagged as Yes/Maybe from
weeks before ...that will count towards your total and unlock the messaging
The above are weekly
quotas - so you don't have to login every day to tag people - you can do it all
in one weekly 5-10 minute session. We may increase these quotas in future - as
we set them as very easy to begin with.
Once you run out of quota you can still 'Lock-Send' messages
to other free members. When you 'Lock-Send' a message the recipient will be notified you would like to be in communicate and can read your message when they upgrade
. This is a good option if they are rich and you are poor but
gorgeous! ;-) ...alternatively they may send you a standard reply saying they're
happy to correspond but not choose to upgrade ...thereby putting the ball back
in your court
FREE MEMBERS & Email address + phone numbers
Full members are (of course!) allowed to send out contact details (email + phone numbers). Conversely Full
members are able to receive everyone's contact details i.e. you can 'Direct Send' your email/phone details to full members
If you are a free member you can also 'Lock-Send' your contact details to other free members. Basically this means the other (free) member is informed you have sent your email address / phone numbers and they can access these once they upgrade.
