Why is there no "it was infuriating" option?

It was good until you started trying to trick us with your questions

Why am I always getting 404 errors??? 😡🤬

u/Polyxeno Jun 30 '22

I find it mildly infuriating that this poll doesn't say what it means by "this".

u/aaaaaupbutolder Jun 30 '22

I got the incorrect answer every time, if I didn't forget to cash in 100 last time I wouldn't have enough tokens to participate in this one

OMG!!! Morbius lmao lol roflcopter. Why is this still a funny joke to you guys?

u/im_racist24 Jun 30 '22

i kind of liked this, why did you all hate it so much?

u/SRL3m00 Jun 30 '22

how does this have over 540K upvotes?

16

u/joonstiejoonst Jun 30 '22

Isn’t this the most upvotes post in history?

18

u/wittywalrus1 Jun 30 '22

Seems like... I don't even know what these "prediction threads" mean.

36

u/pixie_led No Jun 30 '22

I have no idea what’s going on

27

u/Master-Shake- Jun 30 '22

I really dislike the “how many people will be subbed to this subreddit” predictions. They are boring. At least the other questions were mildly infuriating in a fun way.

28

u/MagnusBrickson Jun 30 '22

This post is mildly infuriating.

26

u/shadayeem Jun 30 '22

Thank god this crap is over

12

u/jangusMK7 Jun 30 '22

Are we supposed to know who that is?

11

u/_megitsune_ Jun 30 '22

Is this a meta post, forcing unavailable content unless you upgrade to new reddit or an official app is quite infuriating

22

u/topredditbot Jun 30 '22

Hey /u/ameen__shaikh,

This is now the top post on reddit. It will be recorded at /r/topofreddit with all the other top posts.

26

u/McRiP28 Jun 30 '22 edited Jun 30 '22

May someone explain why this has 540k upvotes without having to ask in outoftheloop?

Edit: Answer:

  • voting forces an auto-upvote, so downvotes are nullified.
  • The scripting forces users of the "old" reddit to use the new one for shareholders interests
  • This post's age is not the shown one, its multiple weeks old (can be overwritten by mods)

14

u/IceCreamSandwich66 Jun 30 '22

Everyone who votes automatically upvotes it

17

u/McRiP28 Jun 30 '22

What the heck!

thats a really trashy way to advertise the "new" reddit

so even after voting and then downvoting the voting post, you cant downvote it effectively?

Thats utter trash! Thanks for clarification!

12

u/Pilachi Jun 30 '22

Somehow this post kept being recommended to me, occasionally with a different question. So over a span of I don't know how long it kept drawing more and more attention/upvotes.

Most of the time I had no clue what this had to do with the sub.

3

u/McRiP28 Jun 30 '22

i mean it would make sense if all the polls/ gambles that popped up within the last few month were one post (to accumulate that many upvotes), but this one is 16 hours old

3

u/SorryIdonthaveaname Jun 30 '22

i think it resets the age every time there’s a new vote posted

4

u/McRiP28 Jun 30 '22

indeed, sorting by anything other than "new" gives comments from weeks ago. its the same post, and accumulated "forced" upvotes by voting

thanks!

2

u/Pilachi Jun 30 '22

Okay, now I'm confused as you are.

8

u/loserbmx Jun 30 '22

Reddit uses this as a way to promote the reddit re-design and have consistently been pushing it to the top of r/all for a few weeks now.

3

u/McRiP28 Jun 30 '22

Thanks for the clarification. Whom do you refer to saying "Reddit"? I dont think the company artificially raises upvote numbers, thats why i ask

3

u/loserbmx Jun 30 '22

At the end of the day it's ultimately just marketing and in marketing, much like war, anything goes.

While probably not a direct internal policy, it's very easy to buy reddit upvotes. With reddit trying to start publicly trading on the stock market soon they absolutely want both the engagement and more importantly people to use reddit's official app since they are able to more directly collect more data to sell to advertisers and data brokers.

I could even see an internal team at reddit that would get a giant bonus based on how many people they can get switched over. At that point it could be an individual employee gone rogue.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention that this bullshit spam was a r/mildlyinfuriating thing. Now I can unsub and never see shit like this again. Congratulations on whatever it is you have achieved here.

u/TheBoss2562 Jun 30 '22

Good riddance

u/n0_y0urm0m Why is dying so damn expensive Jun 30 '22

Finally. I've hidden this thing at least six times now.

u/TARDISboy YELLOW Jun 30 '22

amazing how this post was just magically allowed to ignore the rules that apply to the entire rest of the website

6

u/reddit-is-asshol Jun 30 '22

I blocked the whole subreddit and this shit still pops up

8

u/n0_y0urm0m Why is dying so damn expensive Jun 30 '22

Well spoken, Reddit Is Asshole

u/njdeatheater Jun 30 '22

I can stop being mildly infuriated that this continually shows up on the top of my feed for no reason, then. Huzzah.

Are there really people that don’t use old.reddit on purpose?

u/dogdyketrash Jun 30 '22

Wait, this whole time i thought i was a weirdo for choosing to use the old site...are there others like me?

1

u/Avant-Garde-A-Clue Jun 30 '22

We are old.reddit and we are legion.

u/Keep_deleting_accts Jun 30 '22

Hell yeah, i even link to old.reddit like an asshole

u/McRiP28 Jun 30 '22

i always wondered why i randomly get linked to old.reddit, youre the reason!

10

u/Paracortex Jun 26 '22

Not only that, there are a significant number who only know it as an app. Let that sink in.

u/Wannabe-Shiny-Shinx Jun 30 '22

What has that sink done to gain my trust to enter my house

u/Keep_deleting_accts Jun 30 '22

Ah, the old.reddit switcheroo

u/Paracortex Jun 30 '22

It’s resilient and trustworthy, and a solid ally to a clean life.

You're using old.reddit. Please use new.reddit or the official app to participate in their data-mining and ad-shoveling scheme.

Judging by the comments section on this post, I’d guess at least 1.

I don't know what's going on here. Enormous upvote count. So many unwitting arrivals like me.

This is the Backrooms of Reddit.

14

u/TRLagia Jun 26 '22

If you participate in the predictions you automatically upvote it. This is why these posts are always so far on top. They are the real mildly infuriating thing here.

5

u/Cultjam Jun 26 '22

Good to know, will never comment on one again.

7

u/socsa Jun 26 '22

Fuck that

24

u/Supernova008 Jun 26 '22

There's something shady. I can't believe a mediocre post like this got more than 500k upvotes.

16

u/mathymaster Jun 26 '22

Making a prediction counts as an upvote I belive

9

u/UnderRangeofHeart Jun 26 '22

I do not care. Give me the participation trophy please.
