About This Project

r/rateme is a subreddit in which people post pictures of themselves and ask to be rated on appearance. We're interested in: What are the demographic distributions (age/gender) of posters and commenters? How do these differ, and how do they interact? How predictive are age/gender in predicting ratings? How does the rating-seeking language affect the ratings on a post (i.e. if you display less confidence in posting, are people less likely to rate you harshly?)
