Interesting addition to our profiles.

i was going ot edit my profile when I noticed the following:



On further inspection:



Just to point out, it is set to "Yes", on the options, although I think it's just the default for the point, not an actual "Yes"

Has there been any announcement into this little detail??

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

I just had to modify my location because someone else changed it for me and I had to enter my birthday and state that France is the country bordering Switzerland to proceed.

Obviously a lady always lies about her birthday, which I have.

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

Ta - wanted to change that as well, but the bloody program would not accept Fuerstentum Lichteinstein as neighbouring country... wtf?

I think I am going to chew on some gipfeli until the mood improves or the weekend's here.

It's being announced via email to all users 'soon' - better not ask me how soon 'soon' is though. Possibly later today.

... and in the meantime may I be the first to congratulate you on your excellent observational skills.

Specially for you:

it's not a country, it's a principality?

Maybe we need to inform them that a principality is a sovereign nation (country) ruled by a prince....

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

And why does the answer about neighbouring country end up under "are you familiar with Switzerland" in the profile page?

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

I just tried to complete my profile and was tld my birthday is invalid.

So the EF is purporting to know more about me than I do myself. If so, why do they bother to ask?

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

okay, now I see, no matter what I type, EF says my birthday is invalid and the "Do you want spam from The Local?" option reverts to yes.

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

Reading this thread made me (finally) look at EF-ers public profile...

I know I know, I'll post the picture myself:

Re: Interesting addition to our profiles.

Yet again the communication skills of 'The Local' are shown as appalling.

It should not be down to the observation skills of members to inform about changes that affect all of us.

Even if the new feature had to be added to profiles before it is activated, it would not have taken much to post an announcement of the change. Even Facebook can manage that.

The continued ignoring of members is only going to alienate us in the longer term.

As with all the othe recent changes, I don't expect any reply from The Local. Their silence shows how little they think of the members that they rely on.
