The sectioning of relationship types is wonderful. Having the options for it to be public or private per each one in the list is bothersome. Why not just give us a option in preferences for the following :
- Keep Relationships Private
And this would work on a global scale rather than a singular scale. As it functions now.
And all it would show to others is something like "This users relationships are private sorry"
- Refuse Lover & Spouse Requests
Which would only allow others to add you only as a friend. A Lover or spouse connection would have to be done by that user themselves.
Now in the case where both may have this option enabled. Telling the other to disable this so a connection can be made. Resolves it =)
And also for those of additional flavors. Subs/slaves would be nice to have their own category. I know I wouldn't consider myself simply as someones lover as a sub. Nor would I consider me a spouse. Simply for myself, speaking, I would be more than a lover but less than a spouse. And don't you dare put me in friends because of me not feeling I'm either -lol- So yes I'm suggesting a additional category for women like me =) Please and thanks! =)
Angelic, welcome to the forum and I hope you will post here lots!
I'm sure one of the older guardians of this forum will be able to put it better Angelic, but I am confused as to what you are asking for against what we already have.
- Keep relationships private... We already can, I can choose whether a friend is shown only to me or whether they are on my public "friends" list for all to see and that goes for lovers too........ Do you really need to advertise that you have friends and lovers that no-one else is allowed to know about?
- Refuse Lover & Spouse requests...... again I don't understand, no-one has to accept any friendship/lover/spouse requests, it has to be by mutual agreement. If you want to add someone as a friend, then tell them so and click the "start relationship" and tick (private in your case) friend. they have to accept it when it comes through and the same is true in reverse. If they are asking you to be a friend and you want it to be private, then you must tell them so, or make the first move yourself.
Currently we label ourselves on our profile. this is good because it should (it doesn't always) stop predators from trying to steal you as you are visibly belonging to someone. To have a separate category where our owners have a sub, means that we would have to have a category where they were our Mistress or Master and this sounds too complicated for the DEV team to be interested I think.
We could always start a "sub-club" where we could meet & discuss our lot.
That I would like.
