    If I had to decide between a VERIFIED member and one who isn't, I'd vote for the VERIFIED person. Just sayin'.

    Real Jock Unwritten Rule# 48562

    Being Verified has no real meaning. There were/are plenty of members with Verified profiles that later turned out to fake.

    I vote for the best candidate. But I take the profile info into account. If it sounds real, and they are hot, then I'll vote for them. I admit I do try to go for verified guys though.

    So you'd vote for the verified headless torso with no forum posts over the unverified face photo with a thousand helpful and witty ones? That's motivating.

    Can't get any worse than that one Verified headless forumless MOTD that has some anti femme verbiage in his profile.

    I've been seeing many guys on here trying to preach other people just because they werent verified.
    and MOTD means nothing because it's kinda based on the profile pic , even if you arent verified.
    When I vote , personality goes first , then what they wrote on their profile and the final is their pic.

    This.

    It reminds me of "Homecoming Queen", "Class President", and all the other popularity contests where one person wins and everybody else loses. Popularity contests can reinforce negative self-image feelings of invalidation and "I'm not good enough being just me". Except for the "winner", of course.

    Agree! Especially when the total vote count is less than 100 and yet there are over 300,000 members.

    I've never voted in MotD and don't ever plan to. The whole thing just seems silly.

    Apparently the currently leader is a fake profile. http://www.realjock.com/roccoriv86

    Wonder why it's taking him so long to get verified ;)

    To be fair this site unfortunately does not purge old, inactive (and many times duplicate) profiles, of which those 300,000 are made up mostly.

    You'd be surprised how many if not most the "winners" aren't exempt from those same negative feelings, even when they "win".

    Wonder what kind of profiles would surface if MOTD was based on a random member macro? So many unknown, dormant, worthy, and blank profiles would show up! icon_lol.gif

    They really should give guys whose profiles are viewable only to members a go too.

    If you are speaking about the vote for tomorrow MOTD, roccoriv86 gets my vote. He is very friendly, and simple. He isnt verified yet, he just logged into RJ few days ago.

    You're right, he is very friendly, but that's not him. The pictures are stolen from Bojan Vucicevic, who's a European dude living in LA.

    He said the site takes 48hrs to verified...not that I remember.. only took me an hour or even less!

    Some interesting facts.
    The real guy:

    I'll take a bet that this rocco person is one of those Followers.
