Answer
Click on Edit Settings on the top nav (in the dropdown for your photo), then click on Change Password. Enter your Old Password, and then Enter your Desired New Password twice, and click the Change Password button.
Answer
First of all, this is your Browser, NOT Connecting Singles, that is saving your password for you and putting it into the login box on Connecting Singles. Connecting Singles has no control over this.

Fortunately you can fix this. See directions below:

If your password automatically appears in the login box, it means Password Manager is enabled on your computer. You enabled it the first time you came to Connecting Singles (or any other site), when your browser gave you a pop-up message asking if you wanted to save your login info for this site. If you clicked yes, your username and password would automatically be entered into the login box every time you came to this site using that computer, and anyone after you could sign in as you also. This is a Browser setting and has nothing to do with this website.

You can disable that auto-login feature (see below for Firefox instructions). To protect your privacy, you should NOT use Password Manager if you share a computer with anyone else, or use a computer in a library or other public place. If you are concerned about your password on the site, you should change it - click on Edit Settings in top nav (in the dropdown for your photo), and then click on Change Password.

Firefox: Directions for disabling auto login
Password Manager is on by default. To turn it off:

  • Open the Edit menu and choose Preferences.
  • From the Privacy & Security category, choose Web Passwords. (If no subcategories are visible, double-click the category to expand the list.)
  • In the Password Manager section, deselect "Remember passwords for sites that require me to log in" to turn Password Manager off.
Managing Stored Passwords
To see a list of the user names and passwords you have stored:

  • Open the Tasks menu, choose Privacy & Security, and then choose Password Manager.
  • Select View Stored Passwords from the submenu. You see the Password Manager window.
  • Click the Passwords Saved tab. You see a list of all the stored user names. (Passwords are not listed.)
  • To remove a user name, click it and then click Remove. The next time you visit the web site, you will be asked to enter your password.
  • Click the Passwords Never Saved tab to see a list of the web sites for which you instructed Password Manager never to store user names. To remove a web site from this list, click it and then click Remove. The next time you visit the web site, you will be asked if you want Password Manager to save the user name and password for this site. Click "No".
Answer
If you repeatedly get bounced back to the login screen, with no message about an incorrect username or password, this is probably caused by your browser not retaining your login information correctly. To fix this you need to enable cookies on your browser.

My Account

Answer
Your profile may have been deleted for one of the following reasons:

  • You were inactive for a long period of time
  • You submitted an invalid email address or other invalid information
  • You do not reside within membership area - if your location is not on list, you may not join.
  • You used a proxy to access the site.
  • You mass-mailed cut/paste messages.
  • You did not complete your profile
  • You entered gibberish in narratives
  • You entered photos that are not appropriate for the site
  • You entered narrative text that is not appropriate for the site
  • You used the site for soliciting or advertising, posting a URL.
  • You posted inappropriate or offensive content to the forums.
  • We received complaints about your profile or your behavior on the site.
  • You entered more than one profile. You already have a profile here
  • You are not single.
  • You are under 18 (or at least your photo looks that way).

We do not notify you if your profile is deleted.
Answer
Profiles submitted are checked by the system and normally approved shortly after registration. Approval may be delayed if your profile requires manual attention due to your profile info not being complete or accurate. If your location, email address or profile info is not valid, if you enter gibberish, URLs or email addresses in your narratives, or if you use a proxy to access the site, your profile will be put on hold.

We believe that good relationships are built on honesty. If you register false information, your profile will not be approved, or it will be deleted without notice when found or reported.

Heavy staff workload may also cause profile approval delays.

You can Contact Us to expedite your Profile being approved.
Answer
If you click the Log Out button on the top nav, your profile will no longer say "online now". Otherwise, it may say "online now" on your profile up to 20 minutes after you leave the site.

Uploading Photos

Answer
You may have up to 8 photos with your profile.

  1. Once logged in, click on My Account in the top navigation bar (in the dropdown for your photo), then click on Upload Photos.
  2. Click the Browse button and a file dialog window will appear on your screen.
  3. Locate the path of the image file you wish to upload and double click on it. The file dialog window will disappear.
  4. Then click "Upload Photo" button on the Photo page.
Thumbnails of the photos you upload will appear on the middle of the page. These thumbnails are only the small version of your photo used in search results. A full version of the photo will be seen on your profile page.

Reminder: Your PRIMARY photo MUST be of YOU and show YOUR face clearly. Other photos may be secondary photos.

Photos should be in a .jpg file format, no larger than 3 MB (megabytes) in size.

Still having trouble?
If you still have trouble, you can send your photos to us by email or snail mail, and we will upload them for you. Click here for directions on how to send your photos.
Answer
Large photos take a long time to upload. They may time out. If you have trouble uploading or emailing your photo, the photo file is probably too large or it was not in the right file format (must be .jpg format).
If possible, reduce the size or resolution of your photos and try them again. Photos must be in a .jpg format. 300-600 pixels in width is best.

Send your photos to us by Email or Snail Mail:
If you still have trouble, you can email your photos to us or send them in the mail and we will add them to your profile for you. Go to the Upload Photos page for details on how to send your photos by email and how to send your photos by mail.

We will scan your photos for you and upload them to your profile. We provide this service FREE of charge to our members!
Answer
ConnectingSingles.com accepts jpg, jpeg, jpe, gif, png, bmp, tif, and tiff. But JPG/JPEG is best. If you have a photo in a format other than these formats, please convert it, or send it to us by email or mail and we will convert it for you. Your photo must not exceed 3 MB (Megabytes). If it is larger than this, you can make the file smaller by cropping out unnecessary background, shrinking the width and height of your photo, or reducing the resolution.
Answer
Photos are an option, not a requirement. If you wish to have a photo with your profile, upload photos according to the rules. Photos that break the rules or are not appropriate for this site are deleted.

Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words. Your photo represents you to members who don't know you and, like it or not, you will be judged by what you choose to display. So think about what your photos 'say' about you.

PHOTO RULES:

  • PRIMARY photo must be of YOU and must show YOUR face clearly.
  • Do NOT include CHILDREN for SAFETY reasons.
  • Must match your stated gender.
  • Must reflect your true appearance.
  • No celebrities, models, copyrighted or altered images, cartoons, or drawings.
  • No special effects or frames.
  • No nudity, obscenity, sexual or offensive photos, display of weapons, or illegal activity.
  • No photos in which you are, or appear to be under age 18 years.
  • Tiny photos do not post well and will be deleted.
  • Dark, blurry or poor quality photos will not be posted.
  • Must be in .jpg format, no larger than 3 MB (megabytes).
**A nude or obscene photo will get you permanently banned from this site.
