...then simply create a profile that doesn't have a picture. Then state in the profile that pictures are available upon request. The fact of the matter is that everyone has a standard that they will not go past. Some peoples standards are lower/higher than others. If you are overweight you can't expect to date an underwear model. If you are lower middle class you can't expect to date someone making six figures plus. The only exception to the rule is a women making less than six figures may be able to land a guy making more than six figures if she is smoking hot that is where the phrase "Arm Candy" came from.

It could easily be done! The problem is that Dice wouldn't implement it because they don't give a rats ass about this site or any other site they buy. The only thing they care about is how many users they have to look at advertisements. That is why the beta site has no way to suppress ads like the standard site does. The minute the standard site goes away, and beta becomes the norm I will be gone.

You jest but maybe it actually is them testing the waters. I noticed upon visiting the beta site the first time that there is no way to disable ads for vetern slashdotters as there is on the normal site. They are obviously trying to find a way to make money off of their large captive audience and since they couldn't convince the majority of us to buy in to the beta site, which forces ads on everyone, this might be the way that they go.

All jesting aside I think that this is very interesting, and if it works I would love for my step daughter to be tested this way. She has been diagnosed ADHD, and I believe the diagnosis to be correct. She has trouble focusing on anything regardless of environmental variables.

...but physical keyboards are just not being made much anymore. I am a software engineering contractor, and I work in the cellular industry. Most of the manufacturers are dropping all physical "qwerty" keyboard designs because they don't see a market for them anymore. Motorola is one of the only exceptions that I am aware of that has a "Smart" phone with a physical keyboard that isn't too horrible. Other than that you are pretty much out of luck.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
