Re: marinyshka write: thank you :) who is considered to be SS?

I'm not sure.. I think generally speaking it could be anywhere from 250 to 1,000 lbs. Just a matter of opinion from what I gather.

Re: marinyshka write: I have question too :) Sorry, it is out of topic but I know that you ladies can help me (I am new to all this computer dating and so on, don't know how it works). My question is: what SSBBW stands for? I know the BBW part but what is SS?

Super Sized BBW = SSBBW

Amuse, That's exactly what this feature is going to be. It'll show who's the most popular. And anyone with some low self esteem issues will start wondering, how come I'm not rated, bringing that esteem down even more. It could cause even some hard feelings amoungst friends too. If a friend is rated a favorite and not you. Large Friends should just scrap this feature all together.

I know! Please send this into LF's Suggestion box.. it's sooo important that we complain about this now before it's too late to stop it.

I don't understand how they choose who to be in the top-rated selection. I haven't been rated at all and I am listed in the featured section. I agree, I don't like it at all. It is like getting picked last by the team captain in grade school gym class. We don't need a popularity contest.

Basically, when viewing a persons profile, at the bottom of the page it says "rate me" or some such. You can only rate someone you have communicated with via email several times... so no mass voting is allowed.. yet. I see your point biscuit, I have voted just to be silly myself... see how it works, etcetra... but I have asked LF to remove it.. and will continue to submit it to the suggestion box. Thanks for the vote tho. lmfao

It totally triggers the prankster in me. Trying to figure out a way to subvert the system and make it useless. Like go in and vote for bunches and bunches of people. Or find out saintje (or however you spell is name) and get as many of us to conitually vote for that one person so that it again becomes irrelevant. So far I have just satified myself by voting for the people I know (you amuse) so that at least someone I know is leading the pack. But yeah it definitely creates elitism and hierarchy in a forced way.

I was wondering the same thing... I was hoping Amuse (who knows about all the features) would write a blog on this and explain it to us. :)
