    Maybe this has been brought up before but I don't remember reading this specifically in a forum. I think Man Of The Day should be changed to a randomly selected guy each day from the site instead of votes. There are guys on this site such as myself who would probably never get enough votes to qualify. Why not give everybody a shot?

    Hmm. Might be a good idea.
    We'd still need some restrictions.
    -verified
    -face shot
    -complete profile
    -contributes to forums
    -never been banned
    Lets make a new type of role model icon_exclaim.gif

    That's how it was originally, years ago. I don't know why it was changed.

    Chainers saidIts the man of the day, it really isnt that big of a deal.

    It is to Admin because surely it generates site traffic. Otherwise why would members whose profiles are viewable by RJ members only be ineligible for nomination and fully viewable, unverified headless torsos with empty profiles and zero posts able to win?

    So in the interest of driving up traffic and ad revenue why not three categories of men of the day?

    1) picked by peers (as is current)
    2) picked randomly (as was past)
    3) picked by admin based (gasp!) on some kind of quantifiable merit!

    Or if that's too complicated, 1 or 2 but with an admin-picked Man of the Week/Month and Year.

    Why don't you think anyone would pick you for MOTD?

    I always figured it was only those set to public view otherwise their privacy would be violated when individuals not registered logged on and saw it at the front of the page.

    But your conspiracy theory works too.

    How hard could it be to default a MOTD's "member's only" profile with this?:

    Oh, but you're sooooo much more.

    Maybe also a MOTD opt-out feature for ALL members.

    Sounds like the "Special Olympics," where everybody gets a prize, just for participating.
