The SMW Central Mosts: 2012: Discussion

Link Thread Closed
If the Mosts event is meant to be for fun, well, I don't find any funny to see the same thing year after year. This has already gotten sickening, despite being awarded or not.

Exactly! This is NOT a popularity contest, at all (especially since we have "negative" mosts), and treating it as such is why we have drama. Seriously guys, this is meant to be fun. Stop trying to ruin it for everyone. Yes, you can have your opinions, but trying to force them on us isn't exactly a good thing.

Did I mention I made a new graph to add to the Data Respository?

Point:
Interpretating this as a "Mosts is for fun, not for popularity, so we should vary our votes to avoid the classic hierarchy" thing, well, that's what I think.

Counterpoint:
Interpretating this as a "we can still vote on whomever we want - if the user is overrated we don't care" thing, well, that's something I don't agree. And in this case, I'd rather see the Mosts cease to exist.

And I don't intend to talk about this anymore.

@Egadd: haha, it does make sense.

Can't we all just vote for who we want to vote for and call it a day? Unless people are just filling random names in -

Atma went ahead and fixed his.
lol at all the people taking this seriously

Guys we're all just having fun no need to make this out into anymore than it is: a fun little event.

says the dude (who was) getting votes left and right olo

this also happens every mosts:

people who dont get votes-complain
people who do-lol or ragequit depending on if unwanted category or not

lo mismo esta pasando aqui #lm{extgfx}
lol at all people taking this as a joke

An event that is made to explicitly ignore newcomers and emphasize on the well-known users. What an elitist event.

Overturn in 3... 2... 1...

Yeah, pretty much this. But many vote for the lulz, or whatever, and this attitude pisses me off.

Well, people are free, anyway. We're humans, and humans should have freedom of thought. I must really stop talking about my insatisfactions. It'll result in something catastrophic in the end, and I don't wanna be called 'evil'.

My mouth is shut up.

Just posted mine. I'll update it a little bit later on. I am really surprised about the number of "Best SMWCP2 contributor" votes I have. I'm not even being modest; a certain group of people have done more than I could ever do. And I didn't vote Light or SNN in that category. I think the regular users are more appropriate, despite the amount of work SNN and Lightvayne graciously did. Also ha - I need to stay away from WoI.

...

that's actually true. :Y

And I've got a couple of votes to be staff. WELP. The most I can say is that I'm flattered. #w{<3}








And Q-bee, could you at least TRY to show a LITTLE bit of modesty? And not act like you have some sort of superiority complex and passive-aggressively fling about EVERYWHERE how you're too awesome to be "underrated", "not known", and "unpopular" to be lesser known than the "elite" and "popular" ones? Yes, you have talent. But hell, you're constant passive-aggressive, and that one time, outburst of attention whoring like you're a poor unfortunate soul is just plain tiresome.

Show some discretion - call me a cynic but it's obvious how you only want people to vote for you more, not your campaign of voting for the lesser knowns.

Don't wonder why people are losing respect for you.

(And I liked the named "Blind Devil" better. It sounder way cooler D=)

EDIT: Oh yeah, aj, you spelt programmer wrong in the awards.
Given the reply, I shall write again. Also not meant to be harsh/hurtful.

Superiority complex is something terrible that I want far from my life, especially because I think nobody is better than nobody.

Also, I don't think I'm a "show-off guy", mostly because I hate people who acts like that.

And I'm not desperate for votes or a trophy as it is really seeming like. I was just stating that this Mosts could be different - I mean, in a way out of the predicted to be more surprising. That would be nice.

I'm not angry, so, stay fine. I'm not about to shoot heads.

And yeah about the namechange. I regret changing it; I would have a chance of winning votes for 'Best username', because I also liked it a lot.

Anyway, I've got lots of votes til now. I should be honored.

Welcome back GSG. :D

My thoughts on the stuff that is/was going on:

Everyone votes in whoever they think that deserves to win. As well as popular people vote in popular people, brazilians tend to vote in brazilians, spanish guys tend to vote in spanish guys etc. The thing isn't even the person who does best; it's more like the person you heard of who does best.

There's nothing we can do though, unless try to stand out. It's not people's issue they don't notice you because you're recluded; it's part of the human nature. That's why I started to use IRC, so people may notice me next year or so.

To anyone who doesn't think is winning something: there's still the next year. Keep trying to stand out like I said and people may notice you; you aren't going to be unnoticed forever if you keep working hard. Note to self: keep postcount++ing for the lulz. #smw{:TUP:}
Let's just dispose of the Mosts and spend all this valuable psychic energy on something more productive, like solving for Negative Pi, or spelling the alphabet. Or preparing for the end of the world.

Or finishing SMWCP2.
Seeing how the descussion is atm, I just want to make it clear that I'm not mad for getting few votes, I just wanted to make fun of it. If people actually noticed my posts.. Who knows..

But really, whats wrong with discussing this seriously? Its a bit of a show don't you agree?
*curtains open*

18 years. 18 years living in this world. 18 years of failure. I've participated in dozens of different contests and championships. Soccer, Volleyball, Heavy Metal festivals, Drawing, Singing, Dancing, SMW hacking... put all my heart and soul on each...

The farthest place I've ever reached was... the Second Place.

*curtains close*

^ now it's meant to be a joke. But yep, real life thing of many people. Anyway, I hope better days will come.

Or getting back to work. That applies to me - I've been talking way too much here, and I have, like, 50 auto part crates to checklist here in my job.

Don't worry, it doesn't mean I don't love you anymore.
You got to be cheating on me, I've noticed it in your behaviour.

Well steven, whats a better place to break up than here?
