Connecting With Others FAQ's
There is a Basic Member Search box on the left side of the page with Location as one of the options.¬† Enter the Location you want and click the Search Button.
If you want to be more specific you can do a detailed Member Search and narrow your search down by province or state or even city.
If you want to narrow the search even more you can also select sexual identity and/or age range or even keyword.¬†
When searching you can use one, some, or all parameters.¬† Just remember that the more parameters you enter, the fewer the results you‚Äôll get.
When you see the list of people click on the name and view the profile.¬† If it looks interesting, send them a private message.¬†
Remember that some people are willing to relocate, so even if you are not willing to move, you might find someone who will come to you.
I have been dealing with frauds and scammers for 16 years on our old websites, (see list of those I have stopped at https://christiangays.ca/fraud.shtml) and in that time I have learned much.
This new website has been set up with many precautions in place, based on my previous experience.
First, we charge a very small fee to belong to Christian Gays (minimum $2/mo). We only accept PayPal for a reason. PayPal verifies that the person is who they say they are by depositing money in their bank account to set up an account with them. Therefore every member has been subject to PayPal‚Äôs vetting. This is the main reason we charge the fee.
Next, we have security software working 24/7 in the background.
a) It will automatically block a user‚Äôs IP address if they try to login without first being registered with us.
b) It will block a person‚Äôs IP if they try to login with the wrong username or password after a few attempts.
c) It will block a user‚Äôs IP if they are not registered but use Forgot Password link.
d) It blocks known spammers and frauds from even registering.
I am also notified of the IP address and country of every registration and login, so I know who is online and when.
We also have audio video chat. If there is any question of a person‚Äôs identity, you can always ask to see them ‚Äúin person‚ÄĚ, and of course if you have any concerns at all about a member, please write to me and I will investigate immediately.
I believe, without reservation, that Christian Gays is the safest website on the internet for people to meet each other.
There are several ways of finding specific members
¬†1.¬† Go to “Members” in the Secondary Menu
On this page you can Search for Members by Username in the Search box
or by “Last Active”, “Newly Registered” or “Alphabetical”¬†

3.¬† Go to “Member Search” where you can search by specific criteria.
Read the instructions on that page to give the most effective search results.
Note:¬† Everyone has 10 MB of space for your pictures.¬† A picture, sized for computer (not print), maximum of 600 pixels on the longest side, will usually be between 40 – 100 KB, depending on how much it is compressed/optimized.¬† That means you should be able to upload 100 – 200 pictures.¬† If you do not optimize them, you may only have room for half a dozen pictures.
You can size your images here.¬† ¬†Set Compression to 65 and resize photo to 600 pixels.¬† Click “Optimize Photo”.¬† Look at the optimized photo.¬† If it is clear, then you might try to increase compression.¬† If it is blurry, then you will want to decrease compression.
