Thanks "Loneranger".
There is a general feeling that is correct and is currently being given consideration.

IMO feel the site was used more when it was named "The Cruising Ground"

Thumbs up for M-J's suggestion. Would be really good to have access to gay (friendly) IT professionals as can't always guarantee what might pop up on screen these day and GT & Attitude ads very London-centric

Thanks Michael_John - maybe enhance the existing "Classified" section with some more specific items.

Hi Rigger,
How about adding a thread where gay IT specialists could advertise their services to fix crashed computers by home visits? Maybe the thread could be organised by Counties, so that readers could keep the local details separately (not on computer), and phone for assistance if and when they can't fix a crash or whatever themselves.

Thanks Tonyswma.

The search option does have a lot of variables at present - would appreciate your thoughts/ideas for a simpler search. What would you consider to be the basic essentials?

Likewise thoughts from others.
The search option icon is at the top right hand corner of pages.

The search facility is a little hit and miss. If this could be simplified it would be helpful.

A chat feature would be popular. I recall virgin's chat rooms as the best I have ever used.

I will have a proper think and add any more comments as they come up.

Thanks for asking Rigger. I like the site as it is, but wondered if it might add a "Gay Facebook" type of section, ( or a near copy ) but a Gay version, complete with pictures etc. I use Facebook but am always inhibited not knowing who can read what. If we had our own gay version that would be excellant. A thought anyway!

Darren - thanks for your input.
As you will be aware we do not list Saunas by name with their own page but have regional pages for Sauna information.
Content is dependent upon Readers' Feedback and all we can do currently is encourage Readers' to share information. We hope that an upgraded website may encourage more readers and subsequently more up-to-date information on all pages.

Glad that saunas and stories are to be retained. Any possible way of getting news of either new saunas that will definitely open and also a section of "closed" saunas, so we don't waste time going back to somewhere out of town? A closed section, rather than just removing said closed sauna.

Have the moderators ever considered a chat section
along the lines of the one at chrisgeary.com/chat
or is it outwith the aims of the site. There are
few free gay chat where all you need to do is put in a user name and small description, rather than
emails and phone numbers.
Just a thought, as you asked for input suggestions.

So far suggested:
1. Retain current Cruising Info/Meet men
2. Retain stories
3. Have improved private message facility
4. Able to display pictures in profile
This is now possible. Max 50 x 50 pixels
5. Retain Members and Guests access.
6. Retain Sauna pages

The website has been operating on its present software for many years and, because of its age and because updates are no longer available the job of updating it to provide facilities consistent with today's needs is challenging.

In the circumstances our Webhost is investigating alternative software to upgrade Gaybod to meet the requirments which Members and Guest feel important to them.

To help with this please let us have your thoughts - either directly on this page or if you prefer by email to
admin@gaybod.com.


Your opinions on what threads/pages you would like are particularly important plus ways of contacting others and being contacted yourself plus details of how you would like your profile to appear and what you would like it to include.

We look forward to hearing from you and thanks in advance.

Regular updates will be posted in this section.
