Yup.

By the way, I see you're new here, and this website has a bit of a learning curve.

For members who are open to dating, certain thumbnails and profiles have a heart symbol on them with a percentage. This identifies which members are open to dating, and the percent shows approximately how compatible others are with them.

You can improve your website score in general by answering all the profile questions and writing a bio, which also earns website points, and helps other members get to know you.

Commenting on posts and writing your own posts earns more points. At level two you can private message people, and at level eight you get an agnostic T-shirt.

If you want to date, the website uses profile algorithms to find member matches, so the more details one includes, the better the match.

Many people prefer to see a written profile talking about interests, hobbies, and backgrounds that can be quickly perused to find others who are compatible with them.

In case you didn't know yet, to find members near you, click on the "Browse" button at the top of the page, then on "Members," and enter your preferred search parameters.
Click on the "Discuss" button, then "Nearby" to find members near you also.
Or click on the "About" button at the top left of the page to find links to FAQ or the website tutorial.
Points are now being given to level 3+ members who chat. You can see chat rooms on the group main page or at [agnostic.com].

How true! Even on this site I can see a lot of herd mentality and group-think. The independent mind thinks outside the box and covers all the angles others miss.

I could not agree more! But from my ow experience I can confirm that playing the "advocatus diaboli" from time to time to rock the boat and disturb the herd mentality is not a strategy to collect a lot of likes (more "blocking" ) . (a)

@Matias Yes I have found that to be true too. I find the concept of “blocking” amusing! It runs absolutely counter to debate!

@RobLawrence I confess I don't actually know how to do the blocking....so far I have just ignored and stopped reacting to those I find objectionable. I am really quite new to this technology and don’t know how to post music or links to other material either! I resisted going online for years until it became impossible to survive otherwise!

@Marionville I strongly disagree. Not everyone has anything worthwhile to say and I refuse to waste my time on idiots.

@RobLawrence Thanks so much! I so far haven’t found anyone a bit more than annoying but nice to have that option. My son is an IT Technical Manager and I got him to post my photograph for, next time I see him I will get him to run through posting links etc. I appreciate the offer of assistance and will contact you if I feel the urge to post something before that. ?
