I'm Hot...

AdvantagesIt's a giggle!

DisadvantagesIt can be ego denting!

"...via Paypal. With regards to hotornot.com I'd say go have a giggle but don't take it seriously! If you're vain then prehaps the ones might just be a bit of an ego dent but if your not it can be fun especially if you do it as a group like we did over on Chuckleweb.co.uk My user link is http://www.hotornot.com/r/?eid=NMHLBSK&key=ASR But be kind with your ratings or I'll cry! ..."

To Derek With Love xx

AdvantagesEasy navigation, original content

Disadvantagescan't give a 0 rating for the very 'not' goths

"...be a dark version of hotornot.com (formerly amihotornot.com) but the only darkness to be found at this site is simply in the web page colour. You can't get much darker than black as a background. As for site content, it’s perhaps a little mysterious, but not at all dark. Oh, I should say mysterious only by the fact that the majority of people I think, have accidentally submitted their pictures to the wrong site and would have been better ..." Read review

A Fun way to spend you free time

AdvantagesGood laugh for an hour or so, some very nice looking girls on here

DisadvantagesThe pictures can be very poor quality sometimes

"The question is, Am I hot or not? Or should that be are YOU hot or not? I don’t know, are you hot? If you are, open a window or something, cool down, chill-out. No seriously, I first heard about this site, after reading Manx’s opinion on it about a year ago, so I went over and took a quick look at it, well it was supposed to be a quick look, I actually found myself on there for a couple of hours, buzzing off some of the pictures on there. Well ..." Read review

Such a mean idea yet I loved it

Advantagesfree, merchandise available, dont have to register, possible dating service (!!!), no smut

DisadvantagesUS Canada based, some pix can load slow

"...category I had searched for hotornot.com on Ciao!!! However it doesn't seem to apply to most pictures! The site also offers you the chance to purchase Hotornot merchandise, with Tshirts and mugs featuring a picture of the HotOrNot 1 to 10 voting box with the large bold words "Tell me, am I hot or not?" blasted over them. Available for those US or Canada citizens who fancy one!!! The site also have a newsletter available soon for people to subscribe ..." Read review

I'm, er, cold

Advantages Great fun, you can make new friends, and you get to laugh at ugly people

DisadvantagesA big ego buster, perhaps it's a bit too simple, and it can be boring after a while

"Let's face facts - the Internet isn't there to make us feel better. The majority of sites, you will find, take a curious pleasure in making net users feel a whole lot worse. If the web was there to cheer us up, dooyoo wouldn't have included 'Not Useful', Amazon wouldn't charge for postage, flashy sites would cater for cranky PCs like mine, and NTL wouldn't exist. AmIHotorNot.com (often know as just 'HotorNot') is a fine example of the web community's ..." Read review

ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION, I NEED TO KNOW

AdvantagesInconspicuous way to find out if your hot or not

DisadvantagesSlow to load.

"hotornot.com is a web site dedicated to answering that very same question, am i hot or not? This site was formally known as www.amihotornot.com, but is now www.hotornot.com, so thats why the link you've been trying hasn't been working! The way it works is that you submit your photo to the site to be rated by other users. When someone views your photo they have a choice of rating it from 1-10 on good looks by using the rating meter above each ..." Read review

Who let the dogs out?

AdvantagesEntertaining

DisadvantagesCould be taken too seriously

"...a fully fledged member of hotornot.com you need to enter a user name, password, whether you are male or female and give the URL of the photo you want on the site (here they give a fairly useful warning to be careful of what identifiable personal information is available on the site as it will be on view to anyone who cares to look for it) and then, hey presto you are a honest to God member of the hotornot.com community. As well as an opportunity to ..." Read review

Putting your face on the line

AdvantagesFun, free for general use

DisadvantagesYou could get a nasty shock !!

"OK, so you write on Ciao - some people like what you say, the subjects you write about, your writing style and the opinions you have, but others don't !! Does it hurt ? Well everyone likes the nice comments, the 'well dones' and the positive ratings and probably feel a little let down with the harsh put-downs and the negative ratings but it is after all just an opinion on our opinions. Your face though is a different matter - love it or hate, ..." Read review

Lukewarm maybe

AdvantagesEntertaining at times

DisadvantagesCan get quite boring and repetitive

"For some reason, everyone seems to be talking about this site which gives you the opportunity to "rate" out of ten, photographs of people wanting to know what people generally think of their looks. Sounds like it might be a laugh, eh? Erm, well I have had first hand experience of it... Recently one of my so called friends emailed me the "Am I Hot Or Not" URL along with a user name and password with the instructions to log on and check it out. ..." Read review

gorgeous web site

AdvantagesEgo Booster, Great Fun, Excellent Layout

DisadvantagesSlow Server somtimes

"8 hours to wait, see if your fit enough to date hehe. Thats my motto for this creative site made by 2 american students. How the hell did they think of this? No One will ever know. Rating people for looks is simply ingenius and is a great ego booster. lets see how it works 1. You Submit Your Picture and wait for it to be reviewed 2. Over a few days you gradually get votes out of 1-10 3. your final score is returned (hot or not?) 4. If your not ..." Read review

HOTorNOT

AdvantagesFun

DisadvantagesDon't take it too seriously

"...am pleased to announce that hotornot.com has returned the following results for my photo...... 8.7 You are hotter than 85% of men on this site! Well, that's gotta be something!! OK, you probably wonder what the hell I'm talking about, let me explain......... I first heard of hotornot.com by reading an op about it, and while it sounded interesting enough I was a little apprehensive. The site is pretty simple to be honest, but it ..." Read review

Mirror, mirror on the web

AdvantagesAmusing, apparent cultural phenomenon

DisadvantagesAppeals to the more shallow side of your personality.

""Beauty is skin-deep". "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." These expressions may be considered cliché but become frighteningly apt truisms when considering the phenomenon that is the "HOT or NOT" website. The site itself is very basic. The top of the page trumpets the question "HOT or NOT?" while the page downloads a picture of either a male or female. The default seems to be set to female, so it is more likely to be the latter. The "Show ..." Read review

Destroy your self-esteem

AdvantagesHarmless fun. A good way to kill the last 5 minutes of your lunch break.

DisadvantagesThe adverts annoy me. The voting bar does not always work. You might find your own face on there one day.

"This is a web site that, in theory, allows users to submit pictures of themselves for public inspection. Your picture is then rated by casual visitors to the site on a scale of 1 (The Elephant Man) to 10 (Super Hot). The site has several uses: · To reassure yourself that the rest of the world does not all look like the people you see on TV. · To pander to the voyeuristic nature in us all. (1) · To destroy the self-esteem of your friends by ..." Read review

EGO TRIP OR PLAIN FUN.....YOU DECIDE

AdvantagesEntertaining to a certain extent

DisadvantagesA bit slow

"Trawling through www.lyrics.astraweb.com, last night, looking for the words to some indecipherable songs I was listening to, I stumbled upon a link on the top of the web page showing a pic of a very pretty lady, with words to the effect 'rate me, hot or not?'. Out of complete curiousity (ahem, ahem), I clicked on the link and was transported to www.hotornot.com. The site is basically a medium for anyone of us out there to post a picture on the ..."
