  1. Pointless Notifications?

    Receiving notifications when you ignore a friend request is (in my view) futile as you already know you ignored such a friend request.
    Additionally the ability to edit ones notifications would be a major positive and move in the right direction.

    • Video chat

      My 12 year old recently discovered Distinc.tt and within 2 days had moved a conversation with a new friend he met here to Skype. These kids are used to Facetime. For their safety, it would be a good idea to give them a way to see each other without having to leave the site or giving up any other information about themselves.

      • Looking For

        Hey, within your profile settings there is the 'looking for' part of your profile with 3 options 'friends' 'dates' and 'networking' I really feel it should have more options in this section or even a way of writing your own in, I mean you could do it so what you write in has to be accepted before showing on a profile if there is the worry of people misusing the feature, right?

        • Location services optional?

          Could location services be an option - not mandatory for logging into the app. I don't necessarily want location on 24/7...

          • Multiple notifications when a message arrives

            Currently, when I receive a message and I am inside the messaging window, my phone vibrates and makes a notification sound multiple times. Also, there isn't much consistency in 'lock screen' notifications - sometimes I'll get them for messages, other times I won't.

              • what is the "what makes me distinc.tt" part?

                whenever I attempt to make an account on the iPhone mobile app it tells me I need to fill this section out but there is no place for me to do so. I am confused. Do I need to join on a desktop instead?

                  Hi there. This is the long entry the signup process. It shouldn’t prevent you from signing up.

                  The only thing we can imagine is that it pulled in your content from facebook and it was over our 1000 character limit. Can you please clarify? Thanks

                • 3rd party keyboards

                  Hey. Just a question. When will support for 3rd party keyboards be implemented? Because when I try use my swiftkey keyboard, the chat box disappears completely even when I hide the keyboard.

                  • Better chatting

                    Make the chatting section better. Add "is typing" or something to indicate that the other person is listening. Also it is laggy and usually posts things a couple seconds later.

                        • A few ideas..

                          Firstly you need to fix the notifications. No matter how many times you've viewed it, the notification bubble doesn't go away. Also, get rid of the accept/declined notification. I don't want to decline someone's friend request and then be given a notification to remind me that I have just declined his friend request.
                          Also, when typing in a text box, if the box is low down on the page the keyboard blocks it, something to think about.
                          Also on the ou.tt version im really confused about this events thing where you can see amazing events happening all over the world,…

                              I think that there should be an app for other phones than Iphones.

                                        I just don't like the smaller UI on the bigger screen! It seems really crowded.

                                        • Have more admin/moderator involvement in cases of online abuse.

                                          There was an incident recently wherein a user admitted they were going to commit suicide. Many other users started to attack him and accused him of lying. Whether this was the case or not, there needs to be more mediation from distinc.tt's admins to ensure that the situation can at least be handled on a cyber level. (Block some users or at least step in.) Bullying is a humongous problem for the LGBTQIA community as you probably know. And it's just awful seeing it occur inside the community. Can you at the least provide a report button to notify you…

                                            Thank so much for the comment, Max. We completely agree with you about the incident that went down last week. We are working hard to make sure everyone feels safe and that everyone’s voice can be heard in a civil manner. We’re working on a way where members can flag, block, and edit questionable messages and comments. Please hold on tight while we get this going!

                                            In the meantime, you can always use the “Report” button in a person’s profile page. It’s located in the “More” menu.

                                          • Don't see your idea?
