    Just a thought...Do you think that the next 'Man of the Day' should only be left open to guys who have never had the experience of that great honor? Just for a limited time-frame though.

    I have recently been MOTD and wow, what a day that was! I am so happy to have been and totally satisfied, as if it was a mission, lol! Thank you all.

    Many RJ members have missed out only by a few votes, which makes for all the excitement when it comes down to the line, however some (I am sure deserving) guys have been MOTD a few times which the runner-up would have been sitting on a chair full of sweat! (holding that thought)..

    Anyway, I don't mean to rattle any egos here, I just thought about it and wanted to see what people thought. I hope I haven't offended anyone.

    Take care guys, this is an awesome site. Kev in NZ icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_wink.gif

    Now you gave me more reasons as to why I voted for you! I have a lot of respect and admiration for the nomanies who were not just voted on looks alone, but also because of their active participation on the forums, but most importanly their positive contribution to the often distorted image of what is to be a jock! so I thank you for making my vote a worth while one! congratulations for a well deserved honor of recognition!

    Yes, and it is worth mentioning that every MOTD winner is a reflection of what we all inspire and are as well, that said whenever there is a MOTD I can also see myself in them. You know all of us may be different but deep deep down a lot of us are lot more similar then we let ourselves to belief!

    The whole idea of MOTD is pretty ridiculous.

    Maybe most but certainly not everyone. In the past some helper threads have gotten a few in on very slow days.

    I think that is already built in. Once you are voted for MOTD, I don't think you can get nominated again for a few months. But I agree it would be nice to give more guys a chance if they want to be MOTD. I think maybe if you are runner up several times you could get an honorary MOTD or something like that.

    And guess who we have for MOTD today??
    I was MOTD last August, for my birthday (thanks, Tony)...then three months later, I was MOTD again. Actually, I was kind of embarrassed...to think of all the other great guys on RJ who have never won...and this old fart won twice in three months?? I think that the administrators should change the time frame from once every three months to once in six months...or even a year!!

    I would love to be MOTD, but I don't think I'm that popular or well known enough. From my perspective it's almost like high school or a popularity contest.

    i think it's fun and positive way to lift up a member of the gay community. as long as it isn't hurting anybody, what's the harm in it? icon_biggrin.gif

    This is why I dread sites that have a feature that allows its member to pick the "sexiest" members to be displayed on the main site. Makes the site look shallow.

    Well human nature nowadays have a tendency to discredit, distance, or even deny the fact that underneath all of the facades, we are all made from the same emotional structures; that said everyone else who gets nominated as MOTD, unintentionally is made with the purpose to celebrate the many different aspects of personalities we've all become and overcome in our lives. So in that sense MOTD, whoever gets picked, is not such a bad idea after all. The only thing I will probably regret is not being able to recognize or see the wonderful qualities the majority of the votes saw on the winner, because if I've known I would have been more the willing to give them my vote.

    *sigh* I was hoping that it was something like the "book of the month club." Just sign up and the postman drops a new one on your porch every week...

    Very nice thoughts. Recognizing or looking for some fundamental good in each person is a positive thing. But if that is a basis for the MOTD recognition, which is fine if that is your view, then it certainly does not follow that everyone who is recognized is "a reflection of what we all inspire". Simply not true.

    Based on the general votes and selections, I think people have different views of what the recognition means. For some, it is a pat on the back to a guy who is having difficult times or has never or seldom been recognized. Perfectly valid position. For me, any recognition on a gay site emphasizing fitness should be based on the following:
    1) Being fit or at least somehow striving to be somewhat fit.
    2) Being civil, not rude, in forums.
    3) Generally making a positive contribution on forums pertaining to fitness, health, or relationships.

    MOTD is annoying when people complain about not getting nominated, as well as those who send emails soliciting "vote me or so-and-so MOTD!!". Let's grow up and quit taking something so small so seriously.

    i never even knew you could vote, and to be honest i dont really care, but i agree that it should be left open to other people.
