Thanks @Ole_Jensen. I am following nearly 5500 and have nearly 3000 following me. That has accumulated since December 2015 so there are many that I could stop following if Zwift provided the tools to easily audit following and follower lists.
@Eric can you please assist as there are many Zwifters who have cultivated large following and follower lists over many years. Given the number of Zwifters I interact with each week I think 5000 is actually far too low, but if that is what you have decided the limit must be then at least make it easy to curate lists that have value and are populated with active and supportive Zwifters.
I spend (well you can see my stats if you want to look) many hours and hundreds of kilometres in group rides each week where I help new Zwifters by leading, sweeping or just providing advice on using the platform. I’m happy to do it because I enjoy it and the ability to train safely and conveniently has literally been life changing. All this time helping others generates lots of requests to follow me and I like to follow back. I also like to show support for those that I chat to during rides and one way to do that is by giving out Ride Ons as often as I can. The easiest way to do this is for me to follow those people, hence the nearly 5500 people that I am currently following.
Again, if you must have a limit of 5000 please provide the tools to help manage that list. Let me see who has never given me a Ride On so I can decide whether I still want to follow them. Let me see who hasn’t been active for a long time so I can decide whether I still want to follow them. Let me see who never followed me back………… you get the idea. And let me sort and search my lists alphabetically and by follow date so I can find people easily. I have posted a number of times about this on the forum, but to no avail. Can’t even get a comment from a Zwift employee.
This is a social platform and I try very hard to make the most of that. Is such a shame to be throttled when all I want to do is have fun and help others.
