Trying to send someone an emote, I received the following message:

Criteria Mismatch: [name] must send you a message or add you as a favorite before you can send messages to him.

How/why does this happen? How is it that he/she could send me a message but I can't initiate contact? Where are these "criteria" set?


Totally confused here.....

Is it someone much younger? In the past there was a block against sending messages to someone more than 50% younger, but I thought that was lifted.

I don't know about 50%, but yes, it was someone younger.

Never heard of this in all my years here....

Just heard from a CM gal pal that she was contacted by someone 30+ years older without either having to make the other a favorite or anything else. What gives?

How old is she and/or the man? The age difference is a percentage of the older member's age, not a fixed number of years, so 80->50 might work where 50->20 would not.

That seems bizarre. Why shouldn't a person contact someone of another generation?
Sometimes I want to tell a younger forumite that I really like what they've posted.

The same people? As I understand it, their sex and whether they have contacted you first are both factors in the algorithm.

But, WHY? Why is this necessary?
