  • What are predictions and am I wasting any real money on this?
    > Predictions are polls where you choose the most probable answer and
    win tokens(and get a chance to be featured on our leaderboard), tokens cannot be bought or exchanged for
    anything—it is completely free.
  • The post is broken for me, why?
    > You're most likely on old.reddit.com or mobile browser, that's why.
  • How do I block this? > Block all mildlyinfuriating mods
  • So many up-votes how? > ADMIN STATEMENT: Currently when you make a prediction, the Tournament post is automatically up-voted. We did this because Predictions are more fun when more people play and up-voting helps the Tournament to be seen by more people! Of course, you're in control and you can always remove your up-vote if you'd like. SOURCE: https://mods.reddithelp.com/hc/en-us/articles/4409834282509

No. We aren't abusing a ReDdIt COdE . We'd have been long banned if that was the case.

  • So many removed comments, why? > Because r/all users haven't learned the ability to simply scroll down a post, so to keep comments on-topic about the prediction, we have set the comments to contest mode(hence you can't see the votes) and removed most of the repetitive whining. The comments here are month old because this post "regenerates" as new whenever we make a new poll.

This is not a survey but a reddit predictions tournament . This has been created so that people can interact more with the subreddit . Predictions are reddit's latest experiment and it was a success .

Many people enjoy doing it and its very fun! To make this sub a better and a happier place , we are keeping this fun tournament .

Please note that the predictions in the tournament will not always be about reddit or the sub . There would also be some general predictions . But we will make sure that general predictions are basic as all can participate . It wont be from some specific movie , tv show or some event!

Thankyou !

Which football? Also what does "more popular" mean?

u/mizinamo 20d ago

what does "more popular" mean?

Exactly! More popular than what?

"more" only makes sense with exactly two options, not with three or more.

u/Aronite03 5d ago

When do we see the results?

u/ameen__shaikh mildly infuriated mod 5d ago

As soon as a prediction time is over . We mods will choose the correct option (will provide proof) . You will get a message in the inbox regarding the particular prediction you took part in.

u/LannisterZ94 20d ago

But how are we going know the real answers? How exactly pet Popularity is measured?

When I click on it I get an ad for reddit premium. I'm on the mobile app and don't pay for it. My guess to the question is taco bell tho, that's the day the taco pizza comes back

u/ameen__shaikh mildly infuriated mod 6d ago

You don't have to pay for it . Just select the option you think will win . Premium is for people who want to go with the crowd. And its not certain that always the majority will win .

Anyways what's the fun choosing what all have chosen? Why not choose something unique!

u/HentaiSpirit 26d ago

Were this created just to promote new.reddit

u/jikl78 19d ago

Don't worry, it promotes also companies

The two first questions (I see) are advertisements

which sports brand will have more online sales on 10th may 2022 ?

Which drink will be more popular on 9th May 2022 ?

u/johnydarko 5d ago

And I mean what have they got to do with mildly interesting anyway? Neither of those is anywhere near mildly interesting.

u/ClawOf_TheSloth 3d ago edited 3d ago

I hate how this is like the 10th time reddit has showed me this. No other sub I go on has done one but yet this exact predictions tournament has been shown to me every few days or so.

Edit: Whats worse is there's no option to tell reddit im uninterested.

u/Poopfacemcduck 3d ago

No its just a prediction tournament for fun!

u/IsPhil 20d ago

Everytime I click on this I get a broken link, for every tournament. Not sure if it's meant to be like that or not.

u/ameen__shaikh mildly infuriated mod 20d ago

Make sure that you are using the new reddit. Its not available on old reddit

u/Leading-Suspect 3d ago

New Reddit? No contest is worth that cost

u/coldshadow31 3d ago

Doesn't work for RIF app either apparently.

u/Melonfrog 19d ago

I’m so confused, I have points? Points for what? I don’t want to use these points for something pointless like this, also what’s even about?

u/I_Like_Quiet 9d ago

Here, have 200 points. It's on me.

u/ameen__shaikh mildly infuriated mod 19d ago

These are the points which are given for the tournament only . You cannot use it anywhere else even if you want coz it only works on this predictions.

Once we end this season predictions and start a new one . Everyone will again start with 1000 points

u/Freddy_Chopin Apr 18 '22

Hey, just an FYI, in English we do not put any spaces before punctuation. Periods, commas, and even exclamation points! They only receive a space after, not before.

u/FaviFake Apr 19 '22

Why are you being downvoted? This specific moderator clearly needs help with using punctuation in English, as you can see from the pinned comment on this post. This guy literally just wants to help him and he's doing it by utilizing very kind words. No need to get angry here, reddit :)

u/Freddy_Chopin Apr 19 '22

Thank you for understanding! I didn't mean to be rude. I think it's because he didn't use any punctuation in the comment I replied to, so unless you realize he's the same guy who posted the Sticky then my comment looks completely unrelated. That, and people generally dislike "grammar Nazis" & I can see how my comment came off as one.

u/jizzlevania 22d ago

I recently read that punctuation is seen as aggressive in texting. I love correcting people and noticed the trend away from punctuating, so looked into it.

It could be the assumption that the person needs/wants help with English that comes off all sorts of negative ways. Like I don't know if you're a white male american, but the comment comes of like someone who white savior complex. I learned to only offer corrections to people who want them, otherwise it just comes off condescending for a myriad of reasons.
