    I don't know if this trend is like coincidence or if it something that is a prerequisite for a “Man of The Day” eligibility.

    But so far ALL the "Man of the Day" contenders, and previous "Men of the Day" for that matter, I have seen on here are like the archetypical picture of man. The typical buff build.

    For instance all the of the "Man of the Day" contenders right now are all buff husky guys

    Look:

    So I'm wondering if this is intended, like do only guys with above fit physiques and huge biceps get nominated and win “Man of the Day” or is this just one of those explainable/unexplainable social trends here on RJ?

    Thanks for any input.

    P.S.
    One of my hypothesized answers is that since this is a site geared more towards fitness, if you don’t look fit (or better) you won’t get nominated and hence not win.

    But yeah please post away. icon_smile.gif

    People click to vote, they see the top ten only, they click the hottest one.

    Without a campaign from forums, that'll be how it goes. The whole thing is vain to begin with.

    It's merely a picture on the homepage, it makes people wanna click through the site to see what the other members look like. It's not a judgment of character or any other qualitative deeper trait.

    Hmm I’m sensing a bit of self-projected insecurities in your post. Haha.

    Buff men can be intellectually stimulating you know. And a lot have great personalities.

    Lol, no. He was right.

    Tell me this: How can every single MOTD be based around personality or intellect? You expect people to read? You expect people not to lie in their profile?

    I just expect to see a hot motherfucker on the front page every day. I'm never disappointed. Plus: free fap material. YAY!

    I never said it should be based on that.

    That's the first poster's argument.

    He assumes I'm trying to get at the fact that these guys are judged on their physicality versus their character content.

    Hey I just simply asked why are there only ever huge husky buff dudes?

    Which means I'm getting at the implied question of why are there no plain fit guys being nominated and winning Man of the Day?

    Jeez hostile much ppl.

    It was joke. And his comment was kinda shady.

    But now that I realize it not just long ago I posted a thread bout how the guys on here inspire me cause they're so big and buff.

    Haha kinda hypocritical. Whoops!

    yourname2000 saidIt's not way *always* happens, but sure it's common...for the reasons given.

    Every now and then though, there's someone who's done something exceptional (or just deserving of a special shout out or hug) and they'll be voted in. Those one's almost always happen because of a thread. Without a thread, guys don't have much to go on except looks (and these guys look damn fine, thanks! icon_twisted.gif ).


    On a side note, did someone embed a hidden audio track on here, lol? Oddly it only played in the "create message" window (not in the thread itself.) It was crappy metal shit....did anyone else notice that when posting to this thread? ---it's got me wondering how it was done. icon_lol.gif Again, it doesn't play when viewing the thread, just when writing a post.


    HAHAHA LMAO you're right.

    it's a terrible song whatever it is icon_lol.gif

    EDIT: Hahaha: I see it now in FrostedFlakes post....you're the first person I thought of when I heard it....OMG that's bad, hahahaha ---it's sounds like someone's grinding up a Japanese schoolgirl, lol. How did you get to NOT play in the forum and only play when a post is being created?? icon_eek.gif

    Self-projected insecurities? Thats quite a stretch judging from what I just wrote. I know first hand that buff men can be intellectually stimulating, but your question was about the outward appearance being the common denominator for most MOTD winners.

    I gave you an answer that i felt made sense: the website promotes men who take care of their bodies. That paired with the fact that we are primarily visually stimulated creatures, the idea of men with great bodies being voted for MOTD surely makes sense. If we were voting for who we want to be our next bf, I'm sure the personal values and personalitis of the candidates would weigh in more heavily. Of course there are some winners who are popular amongst the rj community, and are genuinely great people who happen to also be beautiful, and to them I tip my hat.… bravo for being very well rounded in all respects.

    Back on topic, If youre asking a question and you get a legitimate response, dont go attacking someone for doing so. If you want people to just say "average bodied men should be MOTD", all you had to do was ask.

    MOTD is a popularity contest which, whether you like popularity contests or not, it drives community involvement and website traffic.

    It means something to some. It means nothing to others.

    RJ is a "buffet". There are many "dishes" which provide sustenance or just plain entertainment.

    For all who come here, my advice is to "take the best of what you like, and leave the rest".

    Let's vote RealJock for MOTD!

    This. Any MOTD qualities I might have (inspiring body transformation, numerous helpful posts, arguable wit, interesting profile) are undermined by my inability or reluctance to self promote, bitch or cam for popularity. I go elsewhere for validation.

    i was thinking the same thing for the past few weeks! maybe it's just me, but i find myself glancing at who the MOTD is lately and thinking, "again? didn't he get it recently?" icon_eek.gif

    TheGuyNextDoor saidNews Flash.. you don't have to be as buff as all the hot guys above to be nominated Man of the Day to win. Hell,, I probably have on more clothes than your average profile and I've won it about as many times as cats have lives.
    I'd like to think personality comes into play somewhere in the voting process.


    Because you're part of the Mr Popular cliche!! Everybody knows that!!

    Plus as people mentioned before... Most guys vote of physical look/desire...

    Seriously I would be surprised if anyone voted for me. I'm a relatively newbie on this site, I just give my own input and see what people have to say or ignore...


    Oh where the hell did that song come from???!! I was looking all over my tabs to see if I accidentally opened up my youtube!

    Why do the guys that aren't verified and therefore can't vote always seem to have the most to say and worry the most about the motd process? A couple weeks ago I remember another person who is not verified started a thread about motd voting.

    MOTD is a popularity contest. Nothing more and nothing less.

    There are plenty of guys on the forums that deserve to be MOTD. The good guys should win. Sometimes the good guys are the hot guys and that's fine. Sometimes the hot guys are assholes and in that case, he shouldn't win. But gay men are vain to begin with so....you get the drift.

    What amuses me is that it says guys can only win MOTD once per year. Guess THAT isn't the case... icon_rolleyes.gif
