CFdating Web Dev Update: Fixes, Matches Improvements, and More

Our philosophy here at childfree dating is continuous improvement, and that is significantly driven from the incredible and numerous suggestions and feedback sessions with the CFdating community. Today, we’re happy to announce a new round of fixes, updates, and new features to our matches system – with a heckuva lot more still in the works.

Let’s Talk Fixes

In the last few weeks if you’re CFdating account has been human-approved by our staff, but you haven’t been able to send messages with your matches – your solution has arrived. We encountered a bug thanks to feedback from the community, and we were able to get full resolution on it over the weekend. We also have made the interior CFdating experience a bit more informative for brand new members, as we want to make it more clear to new CFdate’rs that while the service is 100% free, your account must be fully approved by our staff before messaging is enabled. However, the messaging service is now back to 100%, so if your account is approved feel free to message your matches!

Speaking of matches, it looks like our development team had accidentally released a test version of our matches filter up onto the live website, so the radius was always getting set for 25 miles – no matter what you entered in the radius filter. We apologize for that, but know that the fix for this is live, and we’ve even started making additional enhancements to the matches system with quite a bit more in the works.

Matches Enhancements

How does a 2,000 mile radius sound? One of our most popular requests from the CFdating community was to expand our match search radius, so that’s exactly what we’ve done for our United States-based members. We also want to stress that this is just the beginning as there are a ton of new matches system feature adds coming in the next few weeks, with the first and foremost being one that we think our international users will love.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, (reliable) geolocation data for countries outside of the United States is hard to come by, so we’ve come up with a pretty good solution that should really improve matches for members outside of the US. Not only will this feature let members take a broader, more complete look at other childfree matches in their country, but it will also allow them to look at their surrounding area – much like the 2,000 mile radius does for folks here in the States. Look for this update very soon as it is at the top of our development list!

In a related note, we also will be rolling out some additional tests based on similar feedback in regards to long-distance matches: these tests will include one or two additional profile survey questions along with what we think will be a neat matches filter and viewing option in an effort to improve the overall experience. We’ve gotten a ton of suggestions to incorporate long-distance relationship options, so for those of you who have submitted those ideas please know we have some very cool updates coming.
