What's new on RSVP
Changes to Gmail
Gmail has added a new feature called 'Tabs' to your inbox. This feature is designed to make your inbox easier to manage by using different tabs (folders) to automatically organise your incoming mail into categories. As a result you may have noticed you're not receiving some of your RSVP emails into your primary inbox.
The easiest way to move emails from RSVP back into your inbox is to left-click and hold on the email, then drag from the new tab over to the primary inbox. Releasing the mouse drops the email into the primary inbox. Once dropped, Gmail displays a yellow box asking if you want to make this change permanent. Click 'Yes' to ensure that all messages with the same RSVP 'from address' will appear in your primary inbox going forward.
Improvements to Chat
We're excited to introduce to you our new look chat and notifications. In response to your feedback we've given our chat a facelift and fixed a number of glitches, to improve your chat experience.
Chat box - what's new?
If someone sends you a message whilst you're online, it will now appear in a window in the bottom right corner of the screen, allowing you to chat whilst continuing to browse the site.
Plus, if someone sends you a chat message when you're not online, you won't miss out, as all messages are saved in your mailbox and contact history, just like emails. However, please remember that sending a chat message works just like an email message and will use one Stamp if it's the first time you have contacted that member.
Not feeling chatty?
If another member sends you a chat and you're busy or not interested, you don't have to enter into a conversation right then. You can either send them a polite message back (it's free to respond), or choose to appear offline so that it's clear you're not available to chat. Whilst you appear offline you can still start or participate in chats with other members if you choose.
By the way...
You will also notice we have moved the notifications bar to the top of the page and added some handy new features.

2. RSVP alerts (e.g. profile views, RSVP messages, read receipts) are shown here.
3. View who's online right now and available to chat. Includes your contacts, plus other members you may be interested in.
4. You can mute the audio alert for notifications here.
If you need further information or help visit our FAQ page.
We recognise there are some characteristics of potential partners which are not up for debate, whether good or bad e.g. smoking habits, want children or location. You now have the opportunity to specify in your Ideal Partner Criteria the characteristics which are really important to you.
Once these are set, we will never send you matches that break them. Please keep in mind though that the more 'Deal-breakers' you set, the more limited your match results will be.
