    Problem is that in order to be MOTD, your profile has to be open and viewable to non-logged in viewers. And most people here prefer not to have their profile/pics indexed by Google. And everyone else probably doesn't even know that this option even exists.

    I don't really notice, usually I vote for people I want unless someone makes a good thread about why someone should be motd than I might be swayed.

    I don't think so. Mine is open to everyone and I haven't been voted MOTD. Yet someone who's new or barely make any contributions at all gets nominated every single fucking day. The game is simple be an a-hole with a handful of shirtless pic you are in. Be smart like me and contribute in the forums get the cold shoulder.

    What's the big deal? It's just a vanity label you attain for 24 hours...if people want it, fine, they can have their 15 minutes of fame. #boredandimpassive icon_neutral.gif

    I think you missed my point. There are plenty of worthy guys that should be MOTD. But since their profiles are not open, you can't vote for them. The option isn't there when you visit their profile.

    As for the new guys instantly getting MOTD.. Well, I think everyone can draw their own conclusions. But yourname2000's post sums things up nicely.

    I didn't even know there was a Man of the Day thing for a longggg while.

    I do enjoy seeing a person's sudden shift in perspective once they begin to get nominated for MOTD, though. It's an almost immediate shift from "oh i'll say whatever I want " to "oh shit to get more votes I'll have to put on my nice face"

    It's so coot to watch. icon_biggrin.gif

    yourname2000 saidI don't even look at it anymore. It's pathetic....the same guys, over and over again. I figure every 90 days there's only 20-30 new people. It's an absurd 'old boys' club.

    The 'vote for' threads are awful....I mean, I have no desire to be part of that club, but to have all of the recognition notoriety and know that you beat another guy only because you had a thread in your favour....it's f'ing lame. I'd actually be pissed to have to deal with all the attention and being buried in email just for a faked-out, rigged "election".

    With 300,000 members now, RJ needs to change the MOTD thing to be per year....there is no sensible reason for 1 person to be MOTD 3 or 4 times a year, like is happening now.

    /rant


    The number doesnt really mean much if the profiles are inactive, blank, faceless, trolls... Plus some of the members are only here to fap to others' naked pics and adult chats.

    Having said that, it would be nice to see others being recognized, more than just having a pretty face and hard bod.

    No, I didn't miss your point I got it that's why I said this Because I consider myself worthy and I'm not been recognized for it. Sure it's just a 24 hr. thing and a few "congrats" msgs. here and there but it makes you feel appreciated and welcomed.

    I tried voting for you, but I am not 'verified' so it didn't go through
    btw: how long does it take to get verified?

    It isn't a question of time. You need to upload a specific photo of your face.

    You take a picture with your face clearly showing, alone, along with a written message, "I like penis!" "Realjock 123"

    I remember reading last year when Metta8 was nominated and eventually won, there was a huge conflict over it as if the guy didn't deserve it. I can't recall who it was but someone point out that he didn't "fit" the RJ profile.

    Who the hell are you to say who fits the RJ mold and who doesn't? Metta8 always brings interesting news articles and just because he's not as fit as those showing off he didn't "fit" and wasn't suppose to win? come ON!

    And I'm gonna say whether is well receive or not. But the current dude in the lead is newbie with less than 10 post. He does not deserve the MOTD yet. You need to earn that with your brain not your abs and arms. That shows how shallow his voters are.

    I was actually the one who questioned, "Why are we voting him? I don't get this."

    Back then he didn't even have that many posts as he does now, and it seemed like a really "oh golly gee willikers!" bandwagon.

    One thing that didn't change about it is that I don't think it's THAT big of a deal. Even though Ivan campaigned it for me, I could've did without the whole title and all of it. It's just a 24 hour period where more people take notice of you than usual.
