    OK, So heres the deal fellows.... I was recently RJ's MOTD last week. Quite frankly, i was SHOCKED to my very core!! Simply because i could think of 50 guys on this website off the top of my head who are WAY hotter than i could ever be. But at the same time, i felt honored to have MOTD status for that day.

    But who decides this and what standards do you have to meet to qualify or get MOTD status?

    It's a random number generator. It doesnt mean a thing. Sorry.

    This topic has come up before, and here is what was posted then:

    "Hi there.

    Jeff from RJ here. Here's the general criteria for MOD:

    MUSTS
    1. Verified profile
    2. Don't have your profile hidden from public view
    3. Have your main pic be a face pic
    4. Have multiple pics

    OTHER THINGS WE LOOK AT:
    1. Have something interesting written in your profile
    2. Contribute to forums (in a good way...)
    3. Have some mutual buddies.
    4. Be inspirational. We like featuring guys who have accomplished big things like losing a lot of weight or participating in a sport, being really active in your 50s and 60s, etc.

    Of course, with the "musts" it limits the pool rather quickly, so sometimes you get members who don't meet all of the other criteria.

    For Man of the Week, we can also feature guys who have their profile hidden from public view by non-logged-in members. For Man of the Week, we try to find guys with the most inspirational profiles.

    It's far from a perfect process of course, but there you have it. And of course, we're always open for other options (small overworked staff = us)."


    I think the criteria makes sense, and the four "musts" are what I look for when I hotlist a guy.

    Personally I rather that I'm featured as a Real Jock Supporter than MOTD any time. So what that you have not been a featured on MOTD.

    It's not totally random. You can go to the contact page under Help and suggest people. I've suggested people who've become MOTD and I'm sure that's how I became one, too. But, other than that I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't random.

    I shouldn't let you all know this, but I pick the MOTD. I use a combination of tarot card reading, voodoo chicken sacrifices and an intense inspection of my navel lint to choose the daily winners.

    Yea, but if your MOTD your featured without having to pay anything. So, in essence, your paying to be broadcasted on the website. Kinda silly.

    Why does this bug you so much again? Perhaps it's a question for the adminstrators of the site maybe they can answer your question. Actually what silly is the level of your UPSETNESS because your not being featured.
    Really WCBacus REALLY?

    I wouldn't complain!

    Being MOTD is usually a good thing. Lots of attention isn't a bad thing, at least for one day!

    From what I remember, most of the attention I received was all harmless and in good nature! Enjoy it while you can. Soon, like me, you will be old and gray and wish for your youth back!

    So that's how it works. Does eating an entire extra-large pizza and 3 king sized Snickers bars in one sitting count as inspirational?
