Behind the Scenes : HeartofAsiaOnline Stage 2 Modifications Complete
We have just completed a month long overhau of HeartofAsiaOnline.com. Most of the changes were done behind the scenes and not visible changes to our membership.
Here is an update on some of the more important modifications.
Safer, cleaner dating service for sincere singles.
If you have ever used Yahoo personals, match.com or eharmony. You probably have had bad experiences meeting many scammers, or those seeking sex not a relationship. These websites do not use humans to monitor the behavior, actions and postings of their members. Often scammers will obtain muliple accounts, and pretend to live in many different countries, just so you will exchange your email with them, and then they can scam you of your money. Sex ads, casual dating, one night stand type ads are prevelant.
Why this happens is that these mega dating sites, just don't care. They don't care who uses their websites, or what their agendas are. They just want the volume of eyes and traffic. If a scammer registers a hundred profiles, that is ok. It looks like more traffic to them. Since these sites are rich enough to advertise on television they will get plenty of new paid members to replace those that left in dissappointment and disgust.
My philosophy is different.
My philosophy is different. I believe finding a suitable life partner is the most important and life influencing task most people will ever be faced with. It is essential for your happiness that you do it right. HeartofAsiaOnline.com 's job is to help you do it safely and productively.
I say My Philosphy. Because HeartofAsiaOnline.com is my baby. I designed it, manage it, own it. It is a very personal issue with me. I spend over 60 hours a week to see that HeartofAsiaOnline.com provides a safe, pleasant place for serious singles to gather, to meet, and to find love and romance. I personally view almost each advertisement, and I also pay for more human eyes to help me. Matchmaking, romance and marriage are very
serious issues and HeartofAsiaOnline.com policies reflect this. I welcome serious singles who are seeking life partners. I turn away scammers, time wasters, and those seeking one night stands.
Now, whenever a member makes any change to any text at his or her profile, our team is alerted to the change and will look at it. Having human eyes look at each bit of text, when the profile is first approved, and then continuing to monitor it later whenever a member makes updates ensures that we maintain HeartofAsiaOnline as a safer, cleaner place to meet. Attempts to add abusive, vulgar, or sexually explicit text are caught immediately. Depending on the gravitiy of the offense the member either receives a warning (and his offending text is removed) or he is permanently banned from using the service.
Scammers are still a problem. While other sites may have 1 of 3 profiles be those of scammers. we believe our ratio is far, far less. But still we are not free of all bad apples.
We are vigilent, day and night to spot and to cancel the memberships of any
scammers or criminals. As far as we are concerned, even asking for a postage stamp indicates a scammer and the person should be permanently banned from our service. Sometimes the scammers are cunning and they ask for monies and gifts outside of our system. Perhaps they ask you for your personal email, or yahoo im, and then send their messages trying to cheat you using those services. If that ever happens, copy the message and report it back to firstname.lastname@example.org right away. We need your help to catch those that show their true evil intent.
Photos added to Notify emails.
Whenever a member sends an email to your HeartofAsiaOnline.com mailbox, or sends a "Say Hi" to you, our team sends you an email to notify you someone is interested, telling you the good news. The notify emails now include a photo of the member who wants to reach you. This way even before you log into your account at HeartofAsiaOnline.com you see right away who is trying to contact you..
This also means is that it is more important than ever, for you to install a good quality
head shot photo at your profile. Because when you send emails or Say Hi's, your picture
will be the first thing the recipient sees about you. First impressions are lasting ones.
Make sure sure you start the relationship favorably by showing your beautiful or handsome profile.
Larger photos can now be uploaded.
The photo upload process, where you upload your photos to your profile, has been
improved. Now you can upload larger photos. The new maximum size is 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall. This size photo is large enough to fill up the screen on most computers. If you have a large photo on your computer you can upload it to our website, then use our cropping tool to highlight yourself. If your photo is still too large remember to email it to email@example.com right away and we will be happy to install it for you.
Overal quality of photos has improved.
We have also installed a new system to process your photos after being uploaded to our site. It is designed to improve the quality of your photo. It keeps its quality much better, much higher than before. This is so that all the photos of our members will look their best. If you have already uploaded a photo, and feel it looks small, or blurry, please go back and upload new photos. You will be pleased with the results.
How to Write a Great First Email Message to Someone You Just Met Online
Part 2 (Continued from last month)
A first email is not an appropriate platform for you to ramble endlessly about yourself and your life. Even though you know (or hope) the other person would like to get to know you more, too much information all at once can be overwhelming. Keep the personal anecdotes to a minimum - one or less for the first email. Yes, they want to know more about you. No, they don’t want to know it all in one email.
