Report: You can tattle on others! Well, you can report minors, people openly soliciting things they shouldn’t, escorts/sex workers, and folks who post inappropriate pics. Don’t overuse this feature, or you will get banned. In other words, this is not the means to get revenge on that bitch who rejected you because ‘you too ugly’.
Block: Yep, you can block ‘em, but once that is done, they are gone forever. You can’t unblock, check them out, and then re-block.
Members: Orange Dot= Off-Line, Green Dot=On-Line. Sorted by proximity.
Match: Jack’d ‘matches’ you with someone. You have the option to skip, indicate you’re interested, or decline. There’s also a world-wide picture match. I have no idea what criteria they use to make any of these matches.
Favorites: You can designate someone as a favorite. You can see who has designated you as a favorite. And you can see who has viewed your profile.
Make a Donation: It’s a free service, but it costs money to maintain and improve. If you’re feeling philanthropic and want to contribute, this is for you.
Insight: This is a fascinating little feature. It is like a mini report out with graphs about your preferences and activities on the site, including Reply Rate (mine is 75%), Age (range of interest: mine is 40-49), Average Height (6’) and Weight (220!), Scene (50% Strictly Friends/50% Big Muscles), Ethnicity (100% Caucasian! I don’t think so!). These stats update on a weekly basis, and are not cumulative. Kind of cool.
Pictures: You get three public – no nudes allowed – one of which will be used for your main profile pic, and you get two private ones which you have the option to unlock for other members. Unlocking is a great way to introduce yourself to others on the site, or not, if you get one of those psychos who insist they are not on-line to look at penises (fucking liars). The site itself does not monitor what you put up, but if another member reports you, you could have that pic disappear or be banned from the site. So read the guidelines and remain somewhat conservative in your choices for your public pics. A face pic will get you more attention than a torso shot.
Basic Profile: Includes Email (not sure why – you can’t share it), Password (which you can disable under Filters), First/Last Name, Age, Height, Weight, Ethnicity, Some General Info Box (I list my activities outside the bedroom), Scene (Twinks, Bears, Big Muscles, Strictly Friends, LTR, and Bi/Straight-curious) and the option to have your stats listed as miles/pounds or km/kg.
Sound, Password Lock, and Viewed By are all on/off features. Password Lock and Veiwed By are only available to members who make a donation

Viewing Other People’s Profiles
There is no way to send someone a picture on the app.
Loading Profile Pics can be a bit slow.
The other thing I have noticed? The people that run Scruff have come to accept that gay dudes have waists. I used to have my pics removed from this site for showing the waist of my work out pants! But something (the other profiles) tells me that they have relaxed their stringent guidelines. Yay!
