Beautiful people dating site members windows server reverse dns not updating
A dating site where current members vote in new members based on their appearance and basic profile information, Beautiful People makes sure users only see men and women who they may find attractive.“It’s based on a fundamental principle of human nature — and that is we all, at least initially, want to be with someone who we find attractive,” said Greg Hodge, Managing Director of Beautiful People.Japanese men are drawn toward the girl-next-door look, but American men like women who are more racy.And Beautiful People takes that into consideration with its voting system, so if you’re an American and you’re being voted on by fellow Americans, those votes are more heavily weighted than if you were being voted on by a Canadian and so on.“Letting unattractive people populate the site would compromise the very concept for which Beautiful was founded,” Mr Hodge said.“If their looks aren't up to our members’ exacting standards and they do not secure a majority of positive votes, then their profiles are immediately removed.” Anyone who is found to be failing to maintain their looks is put back through the rating system, where members of the opposite sex only can select options including "yes, definitely", "hmm yes, ok", "no, not really" and "no, definitely not" based on photographs and a brief profile.
While waiting for the verdict, potential members can get a feel for the site by browsing other profiles and chatting with these exclusive members via email, IM, video and voice chat, and discussion boards and groups.
Another thing singles don’t have to worry about on Beautiful People is members not looking the same in real life as they do online.
Whether someone has a few more gray hairs or doesn’t exactly look like Leonardo Di Caprio like they let on, Beautiful People has a profile verification process to combat misrepresentation.
Most of the users removed from the site were from the US but more than 550 from the UK also got the chop.
