Here's another spin off of "hot or not" type sites. RateMyTurban.com lets anyone upload images of them wearing their turban.

Galleries include recent turbans, a hall of fame, as well as links to how to to a turban. At time of posting, the site features 1163 turbans and has had 1,285,561 ratings!

How did a site like this come to be?

"I was visiting India in October to celebrate my birthday with my grandmother and noticed several cool styles and colours of turbans in Delhi," Ash Singh wrote.

"Having visited or lived in Canada, Africa, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore, I noticed most Sikhs living outside India have a pretty boring turban life (they wear 1-2 colours and usually tie the same style turban as their fathers). I wanted to showcase turbans as an art form and try to revive the majestic roots of turbans. Furthermore, todays Sikhs are commonly confused for Muslims and I wanted to think of a creative way to showcase Sikhs and their royal turbans in a positive way to the general public, and also show Sikh youths that wearing a turban is cool and fashionable. So RateMyTurban was the result."

By the way, HotorNot.com still exists! I had to check for myself, and since I last checked it (which was a good 5 years ago) they've expanded to add a "Best of" section.
