It has come to the attention of the moderators that some members profess to not understand why certain threads are closed.
Acne.org policy regarding what we like to call "Hot or Not" threads: "Hot or Not" threads will be closed. Not only are the threads counterproductive to the original poster, but over the years we have seen those types of threads devolve into: 1. Bragging and fishing for compliments, 2. Bickering, name-calling and even calling out, 3. Very little useful advice, 4. No relation to acne whatsoever. There's a Lounge for off-topic posts. We understand that you may feel down about your acne but please try to understand how your thread could affect other people's perceptions of themselves.
Threads where members post pictures of themselves and ask to be rated by their peers only reaffirm that we are only as good as what other people think of us. And besides that, "Hot or Not" threads have a tendency to attract trolls and instigate bickering.
Obtain your self esteem from accomplishments and abilities, not just appearances.
This policy pertains to the whole board, not just the Emotional and Psychological Effects of Acne board.
There are plenty of sites for you to post images of yourself for others to rate. Acne.org is not one of those sites.
"Hot or Not" threads will be closed.
