Suggestion: Level of muscularity for images

Mar 12, 2022 - permalink

I think it would be a great feature if images could be sorted by amount of muscles on display. For this purpose I propose a voting system near the favourite / +1 button, where everyone can click the level of muscularity on a scale. 1 to 5 or 1 to 10 maybe? Then an average is calculated. Suggest hiding the stat while there are too few votes to prevent artificially bringing images to the top by one or a few individuals.

Drawbacks: Possible abuse, or some people deliberately mistaking it for a rating system? Space used in database? Suggest only storing the number of votes and current average instead of individual votes.

That would be great but I think it's very hard to do at this point.

The vast majority of images wouldn't have enough votes for it to be meaningful.

I'd like tags representing the different categories in competition. I know there's already ones for figure/fitness, physique and bodybuilding but what about bikini and wellness?

Yes that would be great, but is difficult quantify level of muscularity. For explence i have post recently an athlete with quads end legs which many bodybuilders don't have, this athlete I thing is very strong end with robust body, but is not bodybuilder. And is difficult also between bodybuilder: every body has own characteristics.

" sorted by amount of muscles on display" But how do you define amount of muscles?

Competition condition - ripped and veiny? Off season - for some large muscles but soft and not toned? Some women have outstanding legs or arms or abs only and otherwise unremarkable? Bikini toned but not bodybuilder condition? Weightlifters have large muscles but without the tone of fitness or bodybuilders.

ie It gets complicated.

As suggested specific tags for FBB, off season, fitness, bikini , toned etc might be a way to go .

Fit - lean to regular look but has noticeable muscle specially when flexing.

Buff - muscle bulges out even without flexing, doesn't have to be huge or have low body fat

Jacked - muscles bulge without flexing, almost every muscle can be seen, can get veiny when pumped, huge. Body fat conditioning doesn't matter

Yoked - muscles huge, every muscle visible, veiny, low body fat. Peak conditioning

I think I'd prefer "lay" terms for the common people like me. You know, descriptions that everyone could relate to? Still... we have to decide what 'huge' is. Just poking some fun, the suggestion is really good.
