    Might be beating a dead horse but Has anyone noticed that unverifiable guys can be voted MOTD now?

    Yes and they are also allowed to participate in forums which is one of the main reasons why so many fake/troll accounts flood the forums with their idiotic topics.

    Its about time. Profile verification is an idiotic and unnecessary requirement for MOTD. There are those of us who are not verified who are honest about who we are.

    In my opinion, profile verification proves nothing. We would all like to think that everyone on Real Jock is genuine but let's be realistic. How well do you know people on here? Just because someone writes "Real Jock 123" on a piece of card or the back of an envelope doesn't mean they're real. You could turn sites like Real Jock into virtual fortresses and the fakes would still find a way around it. It's not that difficult.

    The problem how many fake profiles have propped up on this website. I think in order to post in the forums one must have at least a verified profile.

    A little off topic:

    I was verified and accidentally deleted my picture used for verification like a dummy. Now I need to redo it later today hehe.

    An additional issue for me is that only RJ members whose profiles are public are eligible for MOTD. Those who restrict viewing their profiles to only RJ members, verified or not, are not eligible for MOTD. Why? And how come non-members evidently get to vote?

    Of course I remember when RJ had 2 levels or tiers of membership. One paid, the other free. Paid was like the premium service on some other sites. Somehow made RJ seem more clubby and exclusive.

    In any case I rarely pay attention to MOTD. Much of the time the winners are a headless torso. Someone with little active involvement on RJ, just a pretty body with no face. Although there have been some exceptions, the model look is often the case.
