Title: Email can still be sent/reply
Post by: mikenl on March 23, 2017, 08:13:50 AM
I am not sure if this is a bug, but let's mention it.

When a free member does not have the ability to send a message/mail, it is still possible to reply on a received message/mail.

For monetizing purposes it would be better to block the possibility of sending mail/replies to other users until the free member has upgraded to a paid membership.

Example:
Joe receives a mail/message from Jane.
Joe has a free membership, so he can't initiate the mail contact.
Jane has a paid membership, so she can initiate mail contact.

Joe can reply to Jane's message and they can send messages to eachother.

What I see on other dating sites, is that Joe can only reply to Jane if he has a paid membership.

The message from Jane will trigger his curiosity and he might want to upgrade. (money in our pocket)

Hi mikenl,

What you say here is not a bug and if you want it like that, means it would have to be re-coded.

Since it works fine as it is, you would have to hire a coder for this sorry to say.
