    Ok saw this in the paper today.

    www.beautifulpeople.net

    This is a site where beautiful people can meet, sort of like ordinary communities however people that want to become a part of the community have to pass a voting from current members.

    At the moment it seems like 1/5-1/6 people pass.

    Not only beauty is rated, income, occupation and other social factors are relevant too.

    I find this a bit funny :P

    Anyone want to try? Always fun hearing about people being rejected. First one to get in recieves rep from me, if that's even an incentive.

    I think that's totally fair enough. Let's not be PC about it - generally speaking, people go out with people of similar attractiveness, including better looking people.

    The only problem I would find is people who tend to believe they're absoloutely 100% drop-dead gorgeous have really irritating attitudes.
    It was like that short lived tv show Hot or not when contestants would say how they 'pitied their less attractive friends'.

    This sounds very American. It's especially in the US that you have personal ads where people specify the looks, the occupation, the salary, the religion of the person they're looking for.

    It reminds me of this website called www.doyoulookgood.com The concept is like Hot or Not but it's been around for ages and it's actually a whole community, which organises parties... The idea is: get a lot of obnoxious, pretentious young people who think they're good-looking (but not necessarily good-looking) and have a party.

    Great idea, don't you think?

    It seems like a similar concept actually as your website also organises parties and stuff. It does seem more selective though.
    The girls are hot! But I don't know much about the guys. I'm a crap judge of male looks but some seem to be ugly gits with a stylish haircut.

    I totally agree with this. The best kind of girl is one who's drop-dead gorgeous but doesn't realise it or at least isn't overly confident :love:

    If you look at people who claim to be "good-looking", you tend to see a lot of mingers. Having an ego the size of a small planet is not the same as being born with good looks :rolleyes: That's something these people don't realise.

    I'll throw myself in if you like (and it doesn't take too much time) but I'm bound to be rejected. I look nothing like the guys on that website.

    Actually browsing the website, there are quite a few reasonably unattractive people on there.

    You're right you'll probably get a lot of people who think theyre attractive but aren't trying to join; but the voting system should counter most of that. Just a question of the whole discrimination thingy, but that belongs in debate & discussion.

    As per the arrogance, at risk of generalising, it'll be a site where arrogant meets arrogant - I don't see the problem there.
