Do I have to answer every question?
Not all questions are required, however, our matching software works a lot better the more details there are with which to compare, and of course, people reading your profile get a better idea of who you are and what you're like!
What happens when I have completed the signup form?
When the signup is completed and you have entered the activation code that we email to you, your profile will be checked over by us before being set to active mode. This is merely to prevent a whole bunch of fake profiles being created, as that sort of thing doesn't benefit anyone.
I can not see the login fields

What is difference between a Message and a Tease?
A Tease is like a little nudge to let another member know that you're interested in them without actually sending a message. Of course, you're more than free to send the same member a message if you like.
How many messages or Teases can I send a day?
As many as your fingers will possibly allow you to send. This depends entirely on how much typing it will take to reduce your fingers to bloodied stubs.
Do photos have to be a particular size?
No. Larger images are automatically resized to a maximum height of 600px and a maximum width of 800px. If the image is smaller then it will not be resized.
How many photos can I upload?
You can upload a maximum of four photos that will be attached to your profile. Alternatively if you would like to upload more photos,(for example from a holiday) you can create your own photo albums using "My Gallery"
Do I have to upload a photo?
No, members are not required to upload a photo, however it is highly recommended. Members with photos in there profiles get up to 10 times more page views than members with out.
What's all this about Instant Messenging?
In addition to the regular chat rooms, you can IM other people on the site with a small application that runs underneath the left hand menu. You can add a user to your Instant Messenger window from just about anywhere that you can see their profile.
They don't seem to be answering. What's wrong?
At the moment, if the person you're messaging doesn't have their messenger open, they won't see your message. Yeah, we know, it sucks. We're working on ways to overcome this flaw, but the messaging application wasn't written by us, and we don't have the source code to it. Still, we're working on it.
How can I tell the difference between men and women in the chat?
You have to go view the user's profile. We know this is a pain in the backside, but we have a new version of the software that supports icons to distinguish between the sexes. Unfortunately, we're yet to finish the code that integrates it with the dating site - it's kinda complex. It should be done soon though!
So who's this "admin" guy anyway?
It's either Cameron or Simon, usually it's Cameron. There's no need to be afraid, we only ban people who're punishingly stupid, which we'd like to think is something you'd all actively approve of us doing anyway.
This document is being worked on continually, more answers to come soon!
