I am deeply disappointed that a small handful of reprobates from 4chan decided to ruin the fun for everyone.
In the end, at least the poll doesn’t really matter - as long as these programs bring us joy and entertainment, then they are all number one in our eyes.
I’m kind of torn on this. On one hand there’s the obvious “rigging the poll is unethical”, and on the other hand is the equally obvious “this poll is meaningless and no one should genuinely care about it”. The sad thing is that all the outraged people are just playing right into /mlp/’s hand, thus adding fuel to the fire. And I’d be lying if I said I weren’t finding some perverse pleasure in this grand trolling.
It really is a thing of beauty
Soon the scripts will apply to the other shows too
tv.com would HAVE to abort
I found the forums on 4chan that the Bronies posted their plan and the script they used
and frankly I’m really fucking disappointed in the people who are involved with the fake votes
the fact that this is the second…
Too late, scripts are being applied to the other shows too
If the votes being cancelled then the whole thing’s coming down with it
Sigh….I’m just starting to lose faith in the fandom so fast…
You’re letting menial shit get to you m8, ending up in all the wrong places amd all the wrong types
There’re crap periods in every fandom, don’t let anyone tell you how shit you are for being part of this Ride. It’s just been a long drawn out processnof adjusting to fandom life. And all thoae stories you hear? They’re shit but don’t let them get to ya
The Ride never Ends, kid
Voting for a show you like isn’t the problem here.
It’s the fact that bronies are using a script that constantly refreshes the page and autovotes for the show. It’s unfair and the show should be disqualified. It ruins the competition.
Bronies aren’t using voting scripts there’s just a shitload of bronies
I beg to differ
THESE PEOPLE ARE FUCKING GROWN ASS MEN I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS
Spread this like wildfire
This is a really simple script and it would be SUPER easy to edit it and put it to better use. But that would mean sinking to their level.
Or maybe the show is genuinely good.
It is, but using a script to get it more votes just makes the show’s fans who aren’t even bronies just look bad.
jesus christ you fucking morons act like they’re the first group of people to ever use voting scripts NEWS FLASH IT’S HAPPENED IN EVERY ONLINE POLL. RICK ASTLEY WON THE BEST ACT EVER AWARD BECAUSE TROLLS SCRIPTED VOTES, IT HAPPENS EVERYWHERE IN EVERY VOTE STOP CARING ABOUT ONLINE POLLS THEY ARE MEANINGLESS NO ONE SHOULD BE SURPRISED THAT THE FANDOM MADE UP MOSTLY OF 4CHAN TROLLS TURNS OUT TO BE A BUNCH OF SCRIPT KIDDIES WITH BRUISED EGOS
But that would require people to not cry like betas and bitch that something they hate is #1 then backpedal the fuck out seconds after and go “oh, but I’m not mad because the popular opinion opposes mine at all, ex dee.”
Seriously, though, I fucking hate MLP’s hatedumb (it’s a beyond retarded term, but I can’t think of anything better to describe a fandom’s radical haters) far more than it’s fandom because of shitposts like this one and Meet The Workshop.
Stop crying about stupid, trivial online Top X lists when shit like this happens every fucking time and not just for pony related shit and stop crying about virtual pony hats to the point you fucking co-opt shit to counter-pander tf2 having a trivial virtual item catering to people who like what you hate.
You’re all acting more manchildish than the worst of the brony community.
listen to this person
Fucking hell this prolly is more /b/’s handiwork than /mlp/
They’rr the ones who’d get the most out of a rigged vote: the tears of angry /co/mrades and tumblrites
Its clear that this poll ain’t well designed since a refresh and vote, refresh and vote script works perfectily. So the best solution would be to cancel the poll and redo it with more secure coding and whatnot
