I'd say keep working on yours, Keith. As I pointed out elsewhere, the terms of use for Chris' site are reprehensible and I certainly can't use it, nor recommend it.

And I just decided to take up PHP and am eyeballing some content management systems to use for building social sites. If need be, I'll start building a site with reasonable terms of use. Unity is no reason to embrace unreasonable terms of use.

I may keep working on it. I haven't started yet, but starting in a few weeks I may have allot of free time on my hands.

I already own freepolydating.com. I think its a decent name.

I'd be interested in finding a designer to work with me. I'm more of a developer than a designer. In fact, designing is very tedious work for me. I'd rather just work on the back end.

I'm just now dipping my toe into Drupal to develop a web site for a drum corps I help run. You use a CMS or code everything yourself?

I've never been a big fan of CMS applications; especially for this type of site. Everything will be done by scratch.

Geez, I dunno... most people I know are on OKcupid. Perhaps more link advertising?

I will pass it on though.

Well, from poking around on the site, a more accurate description would be to say that it is poly-friendly--it does not appear to be a dedicated poly dating site. It does appear to be free. Because it is poly-friendly and free, I'll forgive you for showing up here just to pimp your site.

I have to say the search function is sub-par. The choices on age range to search for are few and oddly spaced--with a top age of 47! If the rest of the features are as poor, I don't imagine many people will hang around much.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

I've been eyeballing using Drupal to build a site. I've got it set up on my machine here to learn how to use it and just haven't decided on a project to begin. A poly dating site is mighty attractive. Picked up some books on PHP and MySQL and need to start doing something before I forget it all.
