What exactly am I voting for?

just a little confused here, for the contenders, what am I voting for exactly, are these people I would like to meet, or these are people who I think should be allowed on the website? I thought it was for people to be allowed on the website, but the window pops up saying they must have caught my eye!?
Clearly there are people who seem ok, but not for me (older people etc), do I allow them, or say no!? To be fair the whole 100 votes thing is a little confusing, as I read it is 100 votes or 48hrs, which kind of defeats the object right?

    Hi E,

    Many apologies, the support article on contenders hadn't been fully published. If you head over here and have a read: https://wouldliketomeet.tenderapp.com/help/kb/contenders/why-should...

    If you have any other questions after reading through the article do not hesitate to get back in touch.

    It still isn't completely clear what we are voting Yes/Maybe/No for?

    Hi Anna,

    So the voting process is twofold;

    Firstly it exists for our members to help us sopt the fake accounts. As you may know Would Like to Meet is going to be the worlds very first 100% verified dating site. This means every member will have a webcam conversation with a member of our team to ensure the person in the profile picture, really is that person in real life. You guys help us by flagging up the fake profiles before they even get to cam so we can dedicate as much time to genuine people looking for love as possible.
    The yes refers to whether you think that account is genuine, the maybe is for if you think that may be a fake account (a lot of people use pictures of celebrities as their profile pictures) and no means you're certain this is a fake account - eg a picture of a car or someones computer wallpaper.

    Secondly, it's a quick-fire way to see some of the users you'll be may be interacting with on the site, you can wink and favourite users from there also, so if someone does catch your eye you can post them a wink or favourite them.

    Let me know if any of that still doesn't make sense. It can be a lot to take in initially. The take-home message here is "Would Like to Meet is a site run FOR the members BY the members"

    Whoops! I voted for people, thinking it was whether I was interested in them or not.

    That's not a problem, In future you can always send them a wink of favourite them . Once you've had your webcam chat with our welcome team all your favourites will be saved for you to check on and edit/add to etc :)

    Hi, glad to see I was not the only one confused by this, perhaps it could be made clearer with a caption?

    Sure, that's a great suggestion! Can I ask, what part was most confusing?

    I initially got confused and just voted with the tick for people I thought were quite hot, the question mark for maybe id consider dating them and no for people i wasnt interested in. Now i realise we are supposed to vote for the profiles we think are genuine or not.

    Hi onlymessin,

    Yes exactly. We're working on some ways to make this clearer for users. Thanks so much for your feedback; it's invaluable.
