Do you think GaG is like a beauty contest?

I feel like sometimes the more attractive GaGers get more attention on here thus more credit and popularity.

  • I think there's some truth to it.

    I think plenty of the GaGers at a higher Xper level that I've seen seem to be in relationships and are more attractive. You could be fair and say that's because as they're in relationships, they can give great advice.
    Also, maybe they like to talk about said relationships and don't mind answering questions about it therefore will give more answers that are better and longer than others thus, more upvotes, mh's and more credit.

    That said, people certainly are more likely to take advice from more attractive people. I suppose the thinking is that "well I would love a girl that looks like that and so her advice would be best". Also maybe they think that less attractive people would be more desperate and less successful in dating so why take their advice (even if it is better).

    Also, more attractive people are more likely to have people be nice to them. How many catfishes have you seen use a terrible picture? They normally pick models off the internet. There's a reason for that. It's more likely to lure people in even if there is no prospect of sex.

    I've seen plenty of studies suggesting that more attractive people are paid more and more likely to be hired so it's not specific to GaG.

    It's human nature... unfortunately.

  • It sounds like you're casting a green eye over something that holds just as true in real life as it does online.

    Yeah, attractive people generally treated better. The handsome gentlemen of GaG will seemingly have no issues finding takers to satiate their erect lap rockets. Once on offer is made, there will be a waiting list. It is not so for the rest of us.

    That's okay, that's how life works. Natural selection.

    As for the women, well, women are unique in that by virtue of being a woman you get a complimentary penis picture, courtesy of some very perverse men across the world. Overall, if attention is what you want, attention is what you get. Now as for getting the attention of the GaG "village chiefs", the leverage works on their side for being handsome devils.

    You don't have anything to worry about. If you're not getting attention it's because, well, you're not active enough.

  • I just can't deny. If looks didn't matter then I hadn't been asked by GAGers about how do I look hundreds of time while it's just a questions/answers site.

    You could check out any open profile of any user (especially girls') you'd find 100+ followers.
    More followers means more recognition.
    More recognition, more popularity.

    I don't know what do you mean by credit but it might be possible that the asker generally tend to award MHO who's more attractive/popular. Or might be his/her friend (literally, GAG friend) and the first step to friendship is attraction and it is beauty which leads to attraction. They receive a lot of personal messages where they could request anything.
    GaG is contest as we'd see xper rank on profiles. So, even devs made it a contest.
    And beauty will always be a plus point, always.

    I am happy that I have real friends/followers who believe on me because of my inner beauty.

    • Hey, I love your inner beauty! But I'm still going to bug you for pictures. Not because I need to see if you're hot but
      1. I'm curious to no end
      2. Once I want something I'm very impatient
      3. I'd like a face to go with my friend

  • For girls, yes. Guys, no.

    The reason i say this is because guys on this site are more likely to be single and thus will be flirting with hot girls on the site- so the hot girls get a lot of popularity.

    But mostly, the popular people are the ones who are on like 24/7 (not literally, but you get the just), and/or have posted several featured questions or myTakes that have grabbed a lot of peoples attention. Also, some people just randomly message eachother andake friends, them get popular because they mention eachother in a lot of questions/opinions/myTakes.

  • Is it?
    Haven't really noticed that trend considering how those who show their face is the minority and the majority has a question mark for a face.

  • Obviously being attractive can help get attention in public and on gag. It's only one factor and I think females usually get much more attention because of if. Males are more likely to give the attention while females are more likely to dream about who they would want attention from.

  • I do feel that is the case sometimes when I see a question filed under the "How do I look section".

    In all seriousness though, It is easier to comment on a question when the Asker isn't anonymous and therefore you are able to communicate on a more personal level, if you get what I mean.

    In terms of attractiveness, people will naturally pay more attention to others they think are mentally or physically attractive.

    In essence, there is truth to your statement.

  • I completely disagree, considering I have never posted my face and I often get too many responses, personal messages, etc.

    Hell, some of which are even from GaG moderation (love you guys, btw).

    The thing is, if you're coming to this site as like a form of... Social media? Then you're using the site wrong, it's basically an advanced form of 20 questions.

    Though not that advanced since most questions consist of: "Does this shy guy like me/boob question #90,000/how does one have sex with an iguana?"

  • I agree. If you are attractive you do get more attention on here. But some of us never post a pic so it's comical to see who is the hottest user question when it's the few that have pics getting mentioned. Most the time the mentions are not attractive. Other times people are like wow your are so attractive and it's a pic of a celebrity or something obviously not the user.

  • If it really came down to it, you could just google "really attractive person" and use that as your profile pic
    Attraction isn't universal anyways. One person may find someone attractive that someone else does not.
    Personally I think people should hearken back to the good old days when you did not show your face to people on the internet, especially over social media, because you wanted to remain safe on the internet

  • Yup, the 'hot people' get most of the attention.
    Some people just get MHO for like 5 words. Just because they're hot.

    Then, you get someone who spends a considerable amount time writing a very informative opinion who doesn't even get a reply.
    Like, they try their hardest to help the person and don't even get a thanks.

    Very well done for bringing this up @LovesTVDx

    • You have to take into consideration the amount of opinions the person posts as well..

      Some posts are just funny, and post someone funny as well..

      Others are more serious. 😂

  • Not a beauty contest (pretty girls are constantly messaged everywhere else I assume) but yeah popular users get much more credit, as in everything else. I rarely get messaged, if ever, and I also don't do it because I'm terrible for conversation starter. I'm also not bothered if someone has friend circles around here, I will be polite with anyone I cross. I don't give two shits tbh

  • I find that many of the popular ones aren't the most attractive but have been here longer, come on regularly, make friends with everyone and provide good/funny opinions. Looks can help but it's superficial, people stick around and remember people more for their content I believe.
    I have people telling me they like my posts and encouraging me to post more which I appreciate more than someone commenting on my looks.

  • I think it has more to do with people having any picture of themselves (attractive or not) because it's easier to feel a connection to them. Also a lot of "popular" people are actually just more actively talking to other gagers.
    Of course you're gorgeous and famous on here...😉

  • In a way, yeah kind of. You have guys oggling at really pretty girls on here and vice versa. Fighting for her attention and it works the other way around aswell. I think being an active user also can incorporate to that aswell. How friendly/flirtatious that person can be too. It just all plays a big factor when it comes to this, but I think appearance alone is not the only reason..

  • The other day a girl commented on a guy's question I forgot what the question was and he responded to everyone's comments except hers so she started trying to talk to him on someone else comment asking why he did not respond. He said she was not attractive and because of that he had no interest in responding to what she had to say. I messaged her to make her feel better but that was really messed up.
