Frequently Asked Questions





Answers to FAQ
General Questions

Q: I don't get it! What is PicFights.com?

A: PicFights.com is a social networking tool. Unlike other interactive community based web sites PF stands out by having a purpose and a theme. We provide members with the rare opportunity to see how they physically compete against others. We live in a society that revolves around how a person looks and should look. Now you can see just how you match up!

General Questions

Q: Is PicFights.com like HotOrNot?

A: No. HotOrNot and other played out similar sites only allow you to rank a member from 1-10. The number is meaningless and inaccurate. Most of the time, you will have no idea who voted for you or what rank they gave you. With PF, a judge (another random member) is presented with 2 different members pictures and must select the better of the two (to put it nicely!). The result of the match can then be viewed from the participants (winner, loser, and judge) profile. You will be able to see who you won and lost against as well as who judged the match. You can even view other member's results!

Who cares about a 1-10 number if the majority of the members who voted for you are not what you'd be attracted to!

General Questions

Q: Why the name "PicFights"?

A: It just made sense! "Pic" is short for picture and "Fight" comes from the concept of member picture matches. It's also a play on words, "Pick Fights", since you are able to challenge others to matches by clicking "Fight Me."

Needless to say, you aren't physically fighting anyone. Duh! 0

General Questions

Q: What are credits and how do you earn them?

A: Credits enable you to challenge other members to "fights." To arrange a match against another member you must spend 10 credits. A single credit is awarded each time you judge a match.

In the near future, we plan to expand our credit system and offer certain features that you can "unlock."

Scoring and Ranking Questions

Q: How come I don't have a rank yet?

A: You need to participate in at least 40 matches before you are assigned a rank. If this process is taking too long try challenging other members by clicking "Fight Me"! Our ranking engine updates periodically throughout the day. So, once you have reached 40 matches you may have to wait a few hours for changes to occur in the database.

Scoring and Ranking Questions

Q: How are ranks and scores figured out?

A: Currently scores are just an average of won matches. Ranks are based on the score. So if you receive rank #8 that means there are only 7 members with a better score than you. In the near future we are going to implement a better scoring system to be more fair to our users with a higher total matches.

Scoring and Ranking Questions

Q: My score is higher than someone in the Top 10. Why am I not in the Top listing?

A: Our system tallies ranks and top scores periodically through out the day. You must wait until the next automated update. Typically updates occur every few hours or so.

Scoring and Ranking Questions

Q: I have more losses than wins. Why is my score so low?

A: You can try changing your main picture to a better one. Often that is enough to improve your score and rank. Don't let the score or rank discourage you or bring down your confidence. This is only a game and not to be taken seriously.
