As you all know we have been testing Chat Now feature for the last few months - where new and existing users can instantly connect with one another in a 1:1 setting - taking place in our traditional Buckstars cafe!.

Today, in client release version 505.4, we have launched a test of a the next version of this feature: Chat Now with Options



This is what some of you will now see when you click on the Chat Now button on your client home screen.

"Surprise Me" option will still connect you with a randomly matched community members who has also selected that option.

Other options are:

--Men/Women only - One or the other will be shown depending on your own gender.
--Looking for friendship
--Looking for love
--Close to my age - Users within a few years of your account age will be matched.
**Teens and adults are never matched with each other
--Role-playing

A user clicking on "Looking for Friendship" option will be matched with any other user who has clicked on that same option.

If you don't get matched with anyone, you can always go back to the options screen and try again!

And remember, the Surprise Me option is always there....

Also please remember this feature is still in testing and therefore not yet available to everyone.

Thank you

How does the 'Looking for Love' option work? Are you just paired with another user who clicked on it? Or are your sexual preferences (as selected on your card) taken into account?

Oh. I hadn't used it since they brought it back ... guesses they might have updated it.

It's good that they have updated Chat Now with these options.

It only matches you with anyone who clicked on that same option. No other factors are involved.

I foresee issues with that if perhaps two straight males 'looking for love' are matched together. LOL

I'm not seeing any of these options, when I click on chat now I get paired with a random person without being offered a choice. I am on the latest pre-release 505.4.

Users may or may not see the choices, I think I pulled this from Varsha's first posting

Not everyone has the options - even if they have Chat Now.

Awww Sad I wanted to go speed dating. LOL

Which raises the question, if I'm not seeing the options then which rooms am I being sent to? Am I being sent to the mystery one?

Question. Can the 'Men' icon be updated to feature less hideous males?

How is this fair to the gay community.. what if one guy wishes to talk to another guy?
