♦ None of the above. Credentials aren't important to me
If you want to know credentials you can always ask for them
♦ None of the above. Credentials aren't important to me
Personally, I'd choose "none of the above" (#4). But if others want to use credentials, that's fine and they should be made easier to use and more useful (#2 and #3). If you make them mandatory, though, I'll cancel my membership.

What's important is the service. Not a piece of paper
♦ Add 'Has Credential' option to search criteria
I've always had good luck with the exchanges I've experienced over several years by not looking at credentials. I also realize the times we live in today so maybe I should get my own credentials uploaded and also pay more attention to whether someone has uploaded credentials or not. Adding "Has Credentials" to search and/or block emails is important for others so adding that would be a great feature.

Credentials should be optional. I don't find them important in my search. If they aren't who they say they are when I meet them, then I wouldn't go through with the exchange. I've been exchanging on this website for years and never had a problem.

Let's not over sophisticate it...It's nice to have it as a search option, but the whole idea is to draw amateurs in -so let's respect people and not make them feel second rate.

I've had better massages from enthusiastic 'amateurs' than some so-called 'professionals'. Credentials mean nothing. It's the intent and skill of the giver that's the key to a great exchange. If anything, it's reviews which are important as they're given from first-hand experience of the person.
♦ None of the above. Credentials aren't important to me
What is important here is connecting with others who appreciate touch.

lets don't mess this up

I've visited too many that were CMT and didn't put effort like that certificate justifies their pay, not their work/skill... (never forget the time the lady was on her phone the whole appt.)

don't bother about cedentialls

A business card or certificate as a credential, really. I could print either stating I'm a space flight operator who flies ppl to the moon--doesn't make it true. I don't think ppl should have to upload their DL or passport/other government docs for everyone to see. A behind the scenes verification would be nice, but there'd still be weirdos and creeps out there.

So long as you know what you're getting, then there is no need for mandatory formal credentials

People should just say in their profile comments, as many do, what experience they have.
♦ None of the above. Credentials aren't important to me
If Creds were required then I would not be here and I would have never exchanged with any of the people on here.

Good energy

For these learning credentials should be optional
♦ Credentials should be mandatory for all members
I think credentials should be mandatory. I get lots of people asking for my photo, then not supplying one themselves. Furthermore, it a waste of my time sending a photo to the requester who then decides he doesn't like me. If the photo was mandatory, it would cut out the time wasting.
♦ None of the above. Credentials aren't important to me
If a person wants to deal specifically with credentialed people only then I suppose such a requirement would be appropriate, but it seems to fly in the face of what this site is all about. Uncredentialed people meet and exchange to gain knowledge and experience, knowing from the start that they are getting a non professional. If credentials are that important maybe paying a professional is the thing for you.
♦ None of the above. Credentials aren't important to me
I think a desire to work with people and the compassion surpass any credentials in value. Let the individual ask for credentials if they want.
