The search function. Not very good.

I'm from the Highlands, and when I put Highlands or inverness(or a local postcode) into the search box, 99% of the options that come up are in England or city's in Scotland that are hundreds of miles away. I know there are members in my area, but it won't show them. Does this happen to anybody else on here? The search function needs looking into as far as I'm concerned.

Choose "distance" as search instead of "most recently online"?

It allocates by distance from.

It goes up in miles, left to right, then changes row and continues next row.....I guess some do not show based on their chosen prefs

didn't seem to help. I'm still getting mostly profiles from England.

I find if I put the whole of my postcode in the search results are a mess. If I put in just the first 3 digits the search works correctly.

I know what you mean everyone seems to be miles and miles away.

I find IF you follow the guide...enter the town or first half of postcode...it works quite well.

Minor hitches...and of course, members may have their profiles hidden...who knows?

When i click on best matches or use the search it only returns profiles that have been on line in the past five to six days, never had any profiles returned that haven't been online for a while.
