I have a question about the match percentage when looking at others’ profiles on this site. Does anyone know how that’s calculated and if there’s a way to search by percentage? I was just curious if anyone knew.
Thanks and have a great day everyone.November 7, 2015 at 10:36 pm #26795MathengeSpectator
Hi Chu Mou, i can’t help you on that topic but i can refer you to a specialty website called “stackoverflow” google it, it’s likely you’ll find an answer there.
The website’s description is ‘A language-independent collaboratively edited question and answer site for programmers’.
Out of curiosity, what subject do you study?November 17, 2015 at 1:16 am #26851
OK. I’ll check it out. Interesting you should ask me what I study. I studied computer science in college and grad school, but didn’t like it after graduating and working as a programmer for a few years. Now, I’m trying to get an Associate’s in graphic design. I hope to do UI/UX design for websites and mobile apps. Thanks for your response and tip!

It works – it doesn´t match me with anyone, which is like my real life! 😀November 23, 2015 at 6:54 am #26869
LOL. Lenka.. that’s such an awesome response!November 30, 2015 at 11:08 pm #26887AnonymousInactive
haha Are you kidding Lenka?? You and I are like a perfect match! xD Except for the fact that you like metal. I don’t like metal at all. I guess that’s why we have a 1% compatibility rating.
..just goes to show you. 😉
I really think they were going to develop the match calculator, but didn’t get around to it. So, instead we just get completely pointless numbers.December 1, 2015 at 12:15 am #26889AnonymousInactive
Just taking a guess here… Since you can only get a match rate of 1 or increments of 10, 1 is for those who arent the gender you are seeking/seeking another gender than your own. Each 10 is probably a fulfillment of criteria (simply true or false, but mutually so using exclusive-or logic) such as age range, body type, ethnicity, religion, and the sharing of atleast 1 interest. I havent seen 40 30 20 or 10 results so they base value must be 50. Just a theory. Havent tested it cuz im lazy and the match % is worthless to me anyways lolDecember 1, 2015 at 4:45 am #26890AnonymousInactive
I’m matched 90% with somebody who lives just an hour away so I’m guessing location plays its part.December 3, 2015 at 3:42 am #26901
Wow. Yura, Mike, and Shaun… you guys make great points! I haven’t noticed anything between something really low like 1 or something really high like 80-100%. I don’t think their algorithm is very sophisticated. Nothing even close to the other dating sites. Oh well. Just a pointless number then. No biggie. 🙂December 3, 2015 at 4:16 am #26902AnonymousInactive
So has anyone come across a 100% match with someone yet? Just curious.December 3, 2015 at 4:56 am #26903
Yes. All the time if I do a search for Female seeking Male between +/- 5 years my age. It’s almost always 100%. 🙂January 6, 2016 at 1:35 am #27050JoyParticipant
I have gotten my first 100% match, but it made some sense because we clicked all of the same interests, or just about anyway. I am also curious how it works too.January 8, 2016 at 3:02 pm #27068
You’re right Joy! I agree. I selected a bunch of interests b/c I have a lot of hobbies! 🙂 So I get quite a few 100% matches.January 11, 2016 at 3:20 am #27079AnonymousInactive
I kinda wish we could weight the items in our profiles, add stars or something, so the simplistic algo would know what’s just peripheral and what actually matters.January 13, 2016 at 7:39 pm #27092AnonymousInactive
I had one. Made me smile abit 🙂January 13, 2016 at 10:41 pm #27094AnonymousInactive
Meh, if i ever came across a 100% match i’d probably to lazy to start anything anyway.
