Viewing likes and dislikes in a profile
« on: June 24, 2021, 03:55:45 pm »
Now, it's been a long, very long week so this might be some kind of fever dream but weren't we able to view a person's profile to see the kind of things they liked and didn't like? 

There's probably some obvious announcement where this is all explained that I've completely missed.

That option has gone away because the O/O matrix is going away. It is recommended that members create an O/O's thread and look at the O/O's thread of potential writing partners.

I can't seem to find any thread on why this change is being made.

This thread talks about it a little.

For someone like me the O/O matrix was nice, because I could use the Find Partners tab, which I assume will be going away, to find partners who played female characters who were dominant. With this going away that type of a search is next to impossible without just simply browsing EVERY single O/O thread out there, unless I am just bad at using the normal search feature.

So, does this mean that since the matrix was cited as the primary reason for not implementing Elkarte sooner, that the arrival of Elkarte, with or without  a matrix replacement, is imminent?

Except for the fact that the 'Find Partners' tab explicitly says that 'Gendermatching is not enabled yet because not enough people have filled out their partner preferences for it to be worthwhile.'  It was also the portion that caused the most difficulty for people to fill out correctly, and I've seen multiple matrices where someone filled out the 'gender matching' section with what partners they were looking for instead of what they actually wrote themselves.

There is a Registry List where people have publicized certain types of characters that they play, and I see that one is focused on people who play Dominant Characters.

Proper gendermatching did not work, but because "Find Partners" showed "Characters I Play" for all matches, it was a snap to find preference-matches and scan for gender (even though many entered those incorrectly).  Just to support Manaan!  But it's OK, most of us will be considerably better off with the switch (and the old profile wasn't accessible at all to some users).

Thanks for the reminder about Registry Lists.
