Best of SB 2010 Voting

24

Re: Best of SB 2010 Voting

  • It weirds me out too, although I can't say exactly why.  It's one thing for it to be a thread poll, but a sticky with radio buttons in which you can see exactly HOW many people voted is a little much, I think.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!

  • Fine, I'll take the sitckies down. I figured it would be a easier for people to find the polls. If I didn't make them sticky people would be all "where are the categories!! waahaahhhh"

    I should have realized either way people would find something to btich about what was supposed to be a fun game. Good lord.
  • I've gotten the least amount of votes in the hottest couple one. That means I'm UGLY! I'm going to go cry in the shower for 3 hours!

    FWIW- I don't think it's that big of a deal. It's the Internet FFS. Don't take is so damn seriously.

    ETA: I don't see why people are feeling bad for Kiki now. She came over here, knowing full well that people on SB didn't like her, yet she posted anyway. It's not like she friends with a bunch of people here, like she is on E. If it were on E, it'd be a different story.

    I was just going to say this. I mean, I feel bad about the kiki one, but I don't think it's OMG EVIL IT MUST BE REMOVED FOR THE SAKE OF MANKIND. This is a wedding message board.

    That's funny, because Sesh's first complaint was that it felt like a popularity contest.

    Either way ladies, if you don't want to participate you don't have to.  Let the rest of us have our fun.

    So you should have said soemthing yesterday.  And come on yourself. I am hardly some one who is known for devising plans to be mean and hurting peoples feelings. I AM some one who knows not to take the internet seriously and that we do stuff like this all the time, just in different forms. If people really had a huge problem with the idea they could have talked it out with me. I am not some one who is all, "whatever I do what I want" when it comes to this board.
  • I dont see any problem with Kiki being nominated.  She is probably loving it, and no doubt will have a post about it at some point today on E.

    She posts here just as often as Poli does, and no one seems to have a problem with Poli being nominated.

  • Why be so negative? So certain people didn't make it into the poll. ::shrugs:: I think this is a really nice way to point out a few people who others find special (for the good polls) and give them a high five. I don't care if I didn't get a single vote. I like the other people listed and they are well deserving. It is meant to be FUN.

  • edited December 2010
    I don't know why I am adding in my two cents but I am...I do NOT understand how anybody who participated in yesterday's threads could not have envisioned what the end result was going to look like. This is exactly what I thought it would end up being. 

    I also agree with the popularity contest thing BUT I don't see how that is any different than any lovefest/poll/whatever on SB...anytime someone posts favourite/least favourite posts it is ALWAYS the same names on each list (for the most part), the only difference this time is that it is limited to the top 5 contenders and in the end there will be actual 'winners' (or 'losers' I suppose).

    Also, I agree with the Kiki vs. FM thing...she is a real person too but it appears everyone hates FM vs. only a few hate Kiki so who cares? (edited because I inserted the wrong short form in this last part!)

    Finally, it is just the internet. I remind myself of this every time I am not listed in a lovefest. If your sense of who you are (or aren't) is derived from an internet based poll you need to stop posting here.
  • Honestly, and I admit I read it wrong, I thought M&M and B were just counting up the people from the thread yesterday. I honestly didn't realize there would be an entirely separate contest of sorts with clicky polls until I went back and re-read it. So yes, that was my fault.

    And M&M, I wouldn't have said anything because I'm just not interested in drama and upsetting people.
  • WTF.  So we aren't allowed to say "that seems mean to me" without it suddenly meaning we're also advocating for it to be taken down?  I think lots of things are inappropriate/mean/rude but that doesn't mean I'm advocating for all of those threads to be removed.  I'm making an observation. 

    And Poli was nominated for lots of nice things.  Not biggest Dbag.  So that doesn't flow for me.  As far as I know, futuremrs doesn't even post on the boards anymore.  It would be like putting MrsE up.  But Kiki does.  If MC had of ended up on that poll I would have said the same thing, and I can't stand her ass most of the time.

    Yup.  Just because she doesn't post here doesn't mean she's left the knot entirely.

    And I'm still just stuck on how this was okay yesterday but is not today.  Not one person spoke up yesterday to say they thought it was a bad idea or mean at all.

    <div>kind of agree with this.  I skimmed the post, to be honest... and just answered the poll, because that's what I do when I see a poll. So, yes, that's my fault for not reading it perfectly.  </div><div>
    </div><div>It was just a culmination of everything.  No, it's not bad that they were stickied; no, it's not bad it was a poll; no, it's not bad it was condensed for today... but just all added up, it left a weird taste in my mouth, so to speak.  I'm confused, though, why I can't express my feelings on the whole thing?  </div>
  • FutureMrs is the mod of Just Engaged & Proposals, and still posts there, from what I've seen in the last few days.
  • I guess I just dont see the big deal.  We do knottie polls all the time that ask "Least favorite poster" etc.

    I can see Sesh point about her not liking it.  I dont think she meant we shouldnt do it, just that its not something she would choose to participate in.

    Because yesterday you had to own up to who you thought was a dbag.  I'm sorry, but this smacks of the same cowardace that people get flamed for on here.  Also, do we really need to see exactly how many people think Kiki or futuremrs think is a dbag?

    Me saying "I think that Cew is a giant douchebag" is completely different than saying "Okay, everybody vote on how many of you think Cew is a giant douchebag!"  Mainly because I have to own up to my comment and this allows me to be a chickensh*t and post it anonymously.  And I think if you're going to call someone out, have the balls to do it where you're owning it.

    PS - Cew is not really a douchebag.
