"About the Project" and "Claims" content are taken from the campagin as is.
My solution is to let computers - and modern visual design concepts - do what they do best; collate and display data (about you) in an interesting and engaging way.
The idea behind this function is thoughtful but lacking the process and how.
...To prevent people from doing what they (often) do best, which is doing a terrible job of self promotion.
Self promotion is a tricky subject, some people are in fact really bad at this, but also some people are in fact really good at this.
This gives people a chance to let their personality shine before their (possibly poor) photography or (lack of) descriptive writing skills get a chance to make their powerful impressions
Although this perspective makes sense, the reality is personality can show even through bad photography and bad writing skills.
On another note, many (most!) online dating sites seed and maintain fake profiles to bait people into joining or re-joining. This is a pretty awful practice and I intend to let the member base grow naturally without artificial accounts.
The prevention of fake profiles is a creative solution to a common problem in dating services, however, the ability to do this requires high level of maintenance and profile investigation into personal information.
The idea for a new functioning dating service is respectable and valid in many ways. Different Dating is attempting to disrupt the dating service industry in a major way but remains to show the applicable pathway to successfully accomplish the major claim.
