      It looks like we have enough volunteers to kick off Vote-Off event #4. It would be great to get this started by early next week.

      Could everyone who definitely wants to take part, please reply to this post? Thank you!

        Cool, @guy3636!

        That brings us up to 3. We need 2 or 3 more and I know more people said they were interested in earlier discussions.

      If we need 2-3 more to make this viable, and interesting, one more won’t do it.

      Whereas I’m leaning strongly toward jumping in on this, anyway, here is what I will do, for now –

      As a challenge to others who previously expressed interest, I will commit to being the sixth participant if there is a fourth and fifth.  I hope this will inspire others who previously expressed interest.

        That’s an excellent incentive, @djornt!

        There are a few who said they’d do it who have gone quiet now. Six people would be ideal for me from a layout point of view and increases the amount of competition.

      I was in until people starting talking about needing a suit, outdoor photos, halloween costumes etc. Got too complicated. If you just want me to stand infront of a camera and take ALL of my clothes off, I can do that. Keep it simple and I am willing to give people an opportunity to strip me TOTALLY NAKED !!

        I, too, am more in for the idea of keeping it simple and to the point.  I think people, including myself, have tossed some ideas out there simply to gauge/generate interest or spur discussion.   Outdoors can be left for other challenges.  And, while there is nothing. I’d rather get out of quickly than a suit, the point of the vote-off is the end, not the beginning.  My understanding, though, has been that little if anything has really been decided, and will have to be agreed to amongst the participants.  The requirements for vote-off 3 seem perfectly fine to me.

        One of the recurring complaints from event 1 to events 2 and 3 was that there wasn’t much variation. I think doing something a little different to spice it up is a great idea. Outdoor was the leading idea for a while but it makes it harder for those in the US (and some in the UK too!) and some of the photos from previous events were shot outdoors anyway.

        I can see why Halloween costumes were suggested, given the time of year, but I think that’s too silly. The suits idea (or even just smart clothes) seemed to be an excellent compromise. It makes it look different to previous events, gives it a different feel but shouldn’t be too difficult to achieve.

        Also, doesn’t it feel more stark, going from completely covered (no bare arms or legs) to fully naked. Much more drastic than shorts and a t-shirt.

        I don’t want to put anyone off if I can avoid it, but I do want to make each one a little distinctive, if we can. It should help attract more voters – which is the primary aim for the site.

      I’m sorry if my suggestion about suits has caused some aggro but it was made with the best intention.  I agree that having suits then going to completely naked is more erotic.  Ratty old shorts and t-shirts not very alluring.  Fancy dress was not a bad shout but not practical.  I still hope the next challenge goes ahead though.  Good luck.

      Sorry, been busy for a few days. I’m in.

      (I’m away 2 weeks from 1st November, so would need to send in what pics you need this week.)

        Brings up another point I’ve been considering.  With work schedules, winter, and holiday months coming up fast, timing for getting photos may be an issue for people.

          Excellent, El Hombre.

           

          I have been trying to hurry this along for several weeks. My original target start date was the start of October.

      Who is for and who is against suits then? Could you also state if a requirement for a suit (or smart dress – shirt, trousers etc) is a non-starter for you.

        Personally, I don’t feel a suit adds anything other than a bit of extra complication.  That said, it doesn’t really matter much one way or the other.

          I’ve already got quite a few people complaining that each event is the same as the last. If anyone has any better ideas, please let everyone know ASAP.

          I’m hoping to start accepting photos from tomorrow and it’s unfair to participants to change the required photos after that.

      I’ve uploaded a preliminary participation instructions page. Don’t send photos yet. For now, I’m just after opinions from those who want to take part. Please let me know if you have any ideas to improve it or have any questions. I want to open for photo submissions tomorrow (Tuesday).

      I’m easy with anything, but perhaps if we start with ‘smart clothes or business wear’, then that is open to anyone’s interpretation, but suggests as covered up as possible.

        There has to be some definition otherwise your photos may not match the stages. I have to keep everyone in sync.

      Where’s everyone gone?? I’m supposed to be opening for submissions today, but I’m not sure how many are taking part.

       

      I’m going to open it up anyway. As long as four or more participate, let’s go for it!

        When are the photos due by? I’m definitely in, but getting dressed up and taking photos is a little tricky for the next couple of days while some guests are in town.

          Based on experience, it’s more a matter of me waiting until everyone’s sent their photos in. My target is to open the event BEFORE the end of October, so I’ll need photos by the end of Saturday to achieve that. I can’t really open it until I have 5+ sets of photos.

      I’m not totally sure who’s still taking part and only one person has sent photos.

      Just going by those who posted in this thread that they are in, I count 4 (two Matt’s, Blogomatic, and El Hombre).  The list of required photos only went up a couple days ago, I would expect it would take more than that for some to get theirs done and in.  Now that the isn’t has been posted, though, might also be more, who may have been on the fence, that may join in.

        I’m hoping it encourages more to join in. Currently, there are 2 definites, another one I believe is definite and one more who is thinking about it.

      Hey, everyone. Newbie here.

      I’ve been browsing the site and love the looks of it so far. I’d happily participate but I’ll be on the road and won’t have anything available before the deadline. I’m hoping to get in on the next one however. 🙂

        Just 2 so far. Both sent excellent photos, but I’m still waiting for a few more people to join in.

         

        Don’t forget to check out the photo descriptions before taking yours!

          Holding out to be #6, still.  However, assuming this will work?

      It’s all gone quiet again. Still only 2 confirmed participants. What happened to everyone who said they would but haven’t so far?

      I just don’t have a suit or jacket. I already have pictures of me stripping from nice clothes to fully naked. I will be glad to submit the photos that I already have for one of the vote offs if I don’t have to take new ones. Ed, if you want to see the photos, I could send them to you to see if you could fit them in on one of the vote off’s.. Just let me know…

        It does say on the participation page that you can wear a sweater (or jumper or whatever you call them in the US?) instead of a jacket.

      Is anyone else going to participate in the Vote-Off?

      What’s the best plan now? Do I cancel the whole Vote-Off event as we are still 3-4 people short, wasting the efforts of the two volunteers who have already sent in photos? Or do we go ahead with it with just two people to vote for? I suppose it would be over quite quickly!

        3 days later and zero comments on this. I even made the topic sticky (so it stays at the top) so everyone would see this. Has anyone see this?

        I need to work out if it’s the site, or me, or just community apathy? Currently, I think it must be me.

          Certainly not you, Ed! Community apathy, possibly. Or just a general desire to see someone else naked but no wish to get naked yourself.

          certainly I’d use it as a good or bad mark when deciding any participation in a naked experiment. After all, if someone doesn’t want to be seen in a Vote Off event then why should they be able to cope with a  Naked Experiment?

          I have not signed up for Vote off 4 because I have been involved in two and survived! But if someone relatively local to me (London UK) wanted to host a photo session where we both took photos of the other to submit to you, then I’m ready to volunteer….

      I submitted photos for the Vote Off 4 Challenge.  Starting with sweater, dress shirt and tie the general public could decide to vote my clothe off and leave me without any.  Once the voting starts there will be nothing that I can do to stop my clothes from coming off one piece at a time. Enough votes and I will find myself on public display Fully, Totally and Completely NAKED!!!!

      Sadly, one of the three participants has pulled out. I don’t think it’s worthwhile proceeding with just two.

      What do we do now?

      Apologies to those wonderful people who have sent in photos for the Vote-Off. I’m not going to proceed with just two participants. Running the event is a lot of work for me and with only two, it’s not going to raise money for the site.

        No problems. I’d be grateful if You could delete my photos then.

         

        Cheers

      Assuming this is dead (which seems very much the case), do I write off the whole idea, or is there any variation that would make you interested or give it a new lease of life in future?

      Naked Experiment Idea : One person is posted fully clothed on the website and an article of clothing is removed from them every 24 hours.  The stripping will continue unless they can get someone to comment “save them”.  It would only take 1 person to stop their embarrassment but would they be able to get it or would human nature and curiosity allow them to be stripped Fully Naked?? The person in the photo can beg and plead to be saved and they might get someone to do it but they may not be successful. If they fail to win any empathy then the public is going to see all of their pictures where they are Totally Nude!!

       

      Thoughts?

        Interesting, but I’m not sure how this will help cover the running costs of the community site?

          Once the person is down to their underwear You could make additional pictures only visible to people who contribute to the site. This way any one person could offer themself t o be stripped without needing to get a group of 4-6.

          That sounds good, but if the participant(s) is/are male, would anyone pay to see them?

          If they want to see IF they got stripped fully Naked and view their embarrassment they might?  Especially if they could see all of the participants fate.  Not sure.. I think it would have to be pitched and promoted as “Donate To See Their Fate”. Curiosity can be a strong motivator.

          Anyone who volunteers to be stripped should get FREE access

          Another idea is don’t wait for 4 volunteers. Anytime you can get someone to volunteer then post them and start the stripping!  It will cost to get their clothes off though!!!

      I’m pretty sure that the focus of dares / naked experiments / chat box / forum is clear. I’d say there is a small element of confusion where Experiments could be confused with Experiences – but that is a case for the English language to resolve!

      I think it is very cheeky to ask for a copy of the published experiments to be sent to you for free just because you don’t purchase items on Amazon. Why do you feel you should ask for a free copy?

      As for “locked off areas” then I’d also ask why you feel that having areas closed and only accessible to those who have contributed is wrong. If all areas are open to all without any payment, then who pays for the costs of running the site?

      Last I checked, Amazon is a completely open website that is free for anyone to sign up and create a user account on.    Once you do, there is a link on the listing page (I checked for the experiment 1 book) you can click on and Amazon will send you a sample.  On the listing page, also, you can read a brief description/synopsis, and other people’s reviews, to get a pretty good idea of what you are buying, and you don’t even have to have an Amazon account to do that.  If you are interested enough in it to want to spend so much time complaining, you might better just buy a book, it’s only $6.99, and kindle (app) is also free to download/use and it’s available for every mobile and desktop platform I can think of.   Even if you absolutely hated it after trying, you haven’t lost that much but at least you’d know what you were complaining about.   That said, I don’t see how it would be a bad idea to have a brief synopsis of the book, as on the Amazon listing, here on the website as well.

      That was one of the reasons I dropped the experiences.

      There is a synopsis of each experiment report on this site:

      Naked Experiment #1

       

      The links are in the main menu, under “Naked Experiments”.
