Hi

Should we change Marital Status to Relationship Status and also include two more choices:

- Master
- Master to xxxxxx
- Owned
- Owned by xxxxxx

Thanks!

and we'll need it to be' Master/Mistress' - not just the masculine form :) can we have 'pet of' AND 'owned by'? and what about 'kitty of'!

I think if your profile is of Female it should be "Mistress of" and if Male it should be "Master of" ... We should have the choice of having owned or pet a lot of people prefer certain terms. Us BDSM folk can be a bit picky...

Otherwise, Hell yes we should have it!!!!

It was after all my idea... **Grins**

I'm a switch, as is Jamie but there is no need to be THAT picky, if we have the choice to at least have the D/s we can be fair to Gav. Let's give him a break! I can't wait to see if it changes. I really hope it does!

The change to "Relationship Status" makes sense to me.

The rest of it would only be of interest to the BDSM set wouldn't it?

Why not have it as user-defined instead of a drop down? That way the possessive-insecure types could put whatever they like

If we had it like that, when someone wants to do a member search, it would probably end up rather pointless.

Only 20% of users have this filled in any way which might suggest that it doesn't meet current needs. You could still have it as a searchable field though even if it was user-defined.

You really need to set up a new site exactly how you'd like it, I'm sure it would be wonderful.

I hope that they are wonderful. I also hope that if I ask for user feedback I'd gratefully take into consideration any constructive suggestions.

There are over 600 threads in this section. If you think we don't value feedback and take it on board, looking at all the developments, improvements and features we've added over the last 6 years, you must have a screw loose.

How would you know? Have you been through 160K profiles and checked? Is your membership on lush mostly a data mining exercise?

What are the URL's of the sites you're supposedly setting up / have set up? I'd love to check them out.

I actually think this poll and its results will be misleading. Only those that want the options added are really going to take the time to vote, and predominantly say 'Yes'. Me personally, I like the idea of the relationship status but the whole Pet/Master thing I dont get anyway, but Im not posting to judge (or even vote, see?), just to point out that the results will be inaccurate. Just my 2c worth...

I vaguely remember a waffle/pancake/crepe poll... Could we add that to the list? I'm quite happy with the relationship status as is, but then I'm usually happy after 1, 2 or 5 bottles of wine...

I'll teach you all you need to know about the whole pet/Master thing. a1089

I like the idea, there are quite a few members that like to display on their profile that they're in a D/s relationship, As is, they already mention it on their bio, but this would be a nice addition as well, in my opinion.
