Who cares? Yes it is nice if your profile contains info and some full frontal nude pics (with face), The sooner you realize that is not the norm, the better. If a profile seems incomplete, just swipe left (metaphorically speaking,), And move on.
Y'all need to be more worried about that relatively new profile featuring a cute young lady in the profile pic. I see A LOT of y'all adding "her" as a new friend. You know the one... Profile pic looks a little too professional. No other pictures. Little profile information. Friending a ton of people all of a sudden. Well, News Flash: THAT IS A BOT!
Yeah, it can be troublesome all the fake accounts. I have only been on TN for a number of months but have already had issues with a number of fake accounts. I will look at their account and see if they made some kind of effort into the info they post before I decide. Lately I have even flagged a couple accounts because of what they state in email or a message.
There may more fakes in the online world than there is in real life, who knows.
I hope this is the right area for this.Since lock down Ive been using TN more and more often and especially going to the chat area more often.Ive found there are so many people on this site with1) No profile photo2) No information on profile3) None Certified accountsAs this Is a nudist website where we put all of our self out there, surly this is something everyone should need to do so everyone is in the same boat?Ive noticed across a ton of voyager / creeps / spam accounts. I appreciate someone would need to approve accounts before they go live but for the well being of all users should the 3 above things mentioned be compulsory to have?Lastly in the gallery section, there is page after page and images from stick websites, porn models and photos that dont come from the uploaded person. Could this not be cleaned up so only real photos from real people come up. If anyone wants porn Im sure they would know where to find it.I hope others feel the same way.
Speaking for someone without a profile picture, I assure you I'm real however new to the nudist lifestyle. I'm a secret nudist. I'm nude when home alone. I go to the nude beaches and hike nude ....alone. My wife does not feel comfortable with nudity and certainly does not want friends, family or neighbors to know. My understanding is that I'm not allowed to post a faceless picture so I'm stuck without a profile picture. I do know there are many lurkers and fake accounts though.
I understand the profile pic issue- type your user name and for ease "nudist" into a google search, and your profile is publically viewable. I do however have a visible pic once your logged in.I agree though, so many with no fields filled in, if this is social media give us a clue on your interests so we can be sociable! If you're not looking to be sociable then why are you here? And the answer to that is why we don't want to mix with them people, not even online.There are settings that prevent search engines from displaying your profile as well as TN'S internal search engine. Anonymity is possible it just has to be clearer how to do it
In defense of the uncertified members... I joined a couple of months ago and thoroughly enjoy the site. However, I was very hesitant about certification because of the nude picture requirement. I have NEVER posted a nude picture on the internet and was not comfortable doing it here, I realize the need for certification and eventually sent it in. Hopefully, that photo is safe with the administrators and will not appear on some search engine. As I get more comfortable I will post more pictures but need to understand the privacy settings.
My thoughts are when you sign up you must fill in all the profile info and post at least 2 fully nude pics, we are all adults what r u hiding, as nudists we have all seen everything so why be ashamed and I want to see the person who I am chatting too. I understand some people might need to blur the face because of work. Lets get rid of the private option and like nudity make everyone equal..
Just speaking for myself, I have family, friends and business acquaintances who do not endorse, support or understand the nude lifestyle. I applaud those that are comfortable enough to not care about others opinions but I'm not there yet.
