Dating Forum?

Casual Adventurer

Hello to the mods and skypers. There could be a dating forum where people looking for friendships and then maybe relationships could talk. That way it would prevent people abusing the friendships forum. Regards, Sonny

Hi Sonny,

I think there are many dating sites already out there that do the job much better then we could do here on the Skype Community by just offering a simple discussion board. The forum board format is far from ideal for this use case. The bad side effects we could see until recently here on the "Friendship request" board which demanded a lot of additional moderation efforts.

We feel that the same moderation time is much better on Skype related discussion boards here on the community which is why we currently don't pursue the dating board idea any further.

Does this make sense to you as well?

Yes that makes sense. So maybe in the future when Skype has more staff available it could happen. Until then, thanks for answering Claudius.
