New SYAS stalker-free feature
For those not on their list, I have copied the email below.
We're excited to introduce two new features to you: "Blocked Member" and "Blocked Matchmaker". These features will now give you the option to prevent certain matches that you do not wish to receive, from being sent to you. This way they will not take up any of your match spaces, and enable you to receive better quality matches.
What are these new features? Where can I find them? How do they work?
On the left hand side of your member home page you will see the options of 'Blocked Members' and 'Blocked Matchmakers'
Blocked Members: Here you can insert the information of the specific people you do not wish to be sent as a potential match (e.g. an ex wife/husband, friend, relative, or someone you previously dated). This will help prevent awkward potential suggestions that you know that you would not want to have. You enter the names of the people and the system will automatically block the matches from being suggested.
Blocked Matchmakers: By viewing a specific matchmaker's profile information (This can be found by choosing 'matchmaker' on the top tool bar, and searching by matchmaker name) you can select the option to block this matchmaker from viewing your profile and sending you matches. This function can be used if you do not want particular matchmakers seeing your information (e.g. You are not comfortable with a particular matchmaker, who is on the site, seeing your private data or you are not happy with the matches that a certain matchmaker is sending you and do not want more matches from that matchmaker.)
These features have been created not to limit the number of matches that you receive, but to improve the suitability of your matches.
As usual, the improvements to the site come from the members so thank you once again for your valuable feedback and contributions to improving the service.
We hope you enjoy using these new features.
