It's on the plentyoffish dating website... the IM environment is within their program. It was while I was trying to find the answer on their site that they sent me to you. I assumed you were the helpdesk for their website, I didn't realize you are a seperate entity.... it really should be specified better within their site what role you play. If you can't answer this question specifically because you are not part of their site, then I think I don't want to pay....

Hi, thanks for your reply. I am not affiliated in any way to We answer questions and get paid when answers are accepted.

In PlentyOfFish site, if you want to appear offline all the time, go to EDIT your profile. At the top of the page you will see an option that will allow you to hide your whole profile.

If you want to appear online, but not receive any instant messages, you go into your mail settings and in the very first section you will see there is a check box that will allow you to say no to instant messages.

However, even if you have set your profile to hidden, those who already have added you to their Favorites can track your Online Status.
