Updated Rating & Review System

General News

We have just completed a first in a series of updates to the user rating and review system here at DatingSitesReviews.com. The major new component in this update is each user review will have its own page (instead of having 6 per page as before). This change also allowed us to enable comments on reviews. If you liked or disliked what someone said about a dating site or service you now have the option to comment on that individual review.

We have also reduced the content on the review summary pages to include just the basic information for each review. Visitors will now need to click the review title or the "Read the full review" link to view the entire review, which includes the full rating, the positive, negative and bottom line bullet points, and the entire review text.

Stay tuned for more changes to come...

eHarmony's Last Free Communication Weekend for 2009

eHarmony

eHarmony is having a free communication weekend (FCW) starting Wednesday December 30th, 2009 and ending Sunday January 3rd, 2010. This is a special holiday event and it has been extended to 5 days (most FCW are 3 days long).

What does a free communication weekend mean? It allows members from eHarmony to be able to review their matches and communicate with them for free through the 4 stage communication process. All members can be contacted and I would expect eHarmony to be extra busy during this timeframe as most singles will be on vacation for the Holidays. If you join eHarmony during the first day (Wednesday) of the FCW, who knows, maybe you will have enough time to meet your match on New Years Eve.

The last free communication event occurred mid November, just over 4 weeks ago (see [story: eHarmony-is-Free-for-the-next-5-Days Story]). This is Free Communication Weekend number 22 for eHarmony here in the US.

Check out our review of eHarmony for more information on the dating site.

I received a bit of surprise this morning when I read the following email from a reader:

Hello....

I was wanting to join AmericanSingles.com but cannot get to the site no matter how I try......

through your website or any other way. I keep getting sent to the Spark.com dating site.

It is like they have high jacked their website address. Can you tell me what is going on?

Thank You

First of all, don't worry the AmericanSingles.com domain did not get high jacked. It looks like a number of the Spark Network dating sites, including AmericanSingles.com and Date.ca, got rebranded and combined into a new dating site called Spark.com.

Dating Sites Reviews: 1000 Blog Posts!

About Us

  • Views: 5,970

Back in March 2009, we reported 600 posts in all topics on Dating Sites Reviews (see Story). The site started in 2003 so it took us about 5 years to reach that point.

Well, it is 8 months later and this post right here, is number 1,000 biggrin

One of the goals this year was to offer more reporting on dating industry news, while still offering reviews, relationship advice and dating tips that our readers visit us each day for. I think we succeeded.

To our readers, I would like to extend our thanks, you make this all possible.

I would also like to thank our regular contributors E. Foley (view Profile) and Erika (view Profile) who have been offering their advice, tips and insight on relationships and online dating this past year.

The next few months will be busy here at Dating Sites Reviews. You can still expect the quality and quantity of posts from Dating Sites Reviews but we also plan a few changes as well. The website will be getting a few theme and feature updates and our review and ratings system will also be getting upgraded. All of these changes are designed to make your surfing experience easier.

Here's to the next 1,000 posts!
