Hand is ugly, and the shadows/lighting don't really match, but the ominous tone is well supported by the audio. Nothing scary than the religieux.

Nice. Still meh though. I think Scientology has been bombarded so much by the YTMND users that if anyone adhering to it would be completely obliterated (internet-wise) by the YTMND community. Well...or at least just kicked off the site.
December 4th, 2007

Also, how is it that preferred YTMND creators get such a huge boost in the overall votes? I mean...if an unknown user was to post this it would have slowly catch up to 4 after staying at the 3 range. This site instead starts off at 5 and then slowly progresses to 4 :P funny eh?

well it depends. Sometimes its just coincidence, and other times they have connections and have users they want to show their sites to.

Oh and I don't think well known users get any any special treatment it really just pans out to be the same whether you are well known or not. Sites speak for themselves.

No, helidanx is right. I think it does even out like he and you said but any halfway decent site by a well known - well liked user starts out with an insane rating and then comes down to earth after being on the FP awhile. Someone unknown people tend not to vote as much and those sites can get killed by 1 trolls - and may or may not make it back to the FP. I like this site, found it funny, but if someone unknown made it chances are I never would have seen it

This is a great comment thread: Completely unsupported speculation with a heavy confirmation bias. Awesome!

Are you calling me biased korf? Not at all. Trolls will target your site whether you are well known or not.

They're featured users because a lot of their sites already got high ratings and they deserve it. Some people come here to get entertained. Look at the recently created, there is a huge gap on like 2/3+ of them
December 4th, 2007
(0)
Just because it's recently created, doesn't mean it sucks. All YTMNDs start that way now. All you have to do is make a great site that doesn't flame anyone, avoid downvoters and c@nts that got PK'd in Runescape that are angry.
December 4th, 2007

If 5 people vote 5, then the site is in the U&C with a 5.00 rating. It doesn't take a featured user to get 5 5s, and regardless of who made the site it will slowly progress downward to its final score due to the law of large numbers (and once it hits 4 it will fall off the U&C and remain largely unchanged because nobody will see it anymore). If you believe what helidanx believes, every time he sees a featured user site that doesn't fit his pattern he will forget it and remember those that fit his beliefs.

And that is confirmation bias. Speculate all you want, but you'll never learn anything by speculating.
December 5th, 2007

Nice! I like it how Korf41 thinks that I don't give a #@$@ about sites from featured users. I never even said anything remotely close to that. I merely stated that featured-user sites get a preference when starting off whereas normal-user sites will have a higher percentage of lower-voting people. Most users don't think that much when they vote for a site so USUALLY it comes down to 5's or 1's. Speculation?! No my friend...Look at the comments on this site and tell me how many 4's/3's/2's you see XD
December 5th, 2007
(0)
Therefore when people are looking at a good site by an average user there will be a higher ratio of 1's to 5's than a site made by a preferred user. This will create a very steep slope that the site will have to climb before coming out of obscurity after the newly created, if it does come out at all. I'm not saying that it happens to every site...just that preferred-users have the perk of not having to go through that with their sites.
December 5th, 2007

Wow, a highly rated site has lots of high ratings. Wow, a comment section has lots of high ratings. That means that featured users' sites get high ratings. Wait, this site has a high rating, so it obviously should have commenters giving high ratings and most comments come from high ratings across the board. "Therefore when people are looking at a good site by an average user there will be a higher ratio of 1's to 5's than a site made by a preferred user." This is the definition of unsupported speculation.
December 5th, 2007

Just because one site by a featured user was rated highly doesn't mean that all sites by featured users follow the same pattern, nor does it mean that sites by non-featured users are voted worse than others. Now, when a person makes a sh*tty site and then gets all their friends to upvote it to raise it from low to a 4.00 where it then gets voted back down off the U&C then it will follow that pattern, but otherwise I see no reason to think that a good site by a non-featured user would follow this pattern.
December 5th, 2007
(1)
Also, "sh*tty" meaning "rated poorly by the ytmnd populace at large", which is all of my sites. Great men are born posthumously.
December 5th, 2007

Now, getting away from the speculation, here are some FEATURED sites by fearcondom that follow the exact pattern you describe of non-featured users. http://api.ytmnd.com/examples/timeline.html?id=827172 http://api.ytmnd.com/examples/timeline.html?id=826338 http://api.ytmnd.com/examples/timeline.html?id=823782 ... speculation is dumb.

Remeber in high school , when you would vote for your class president? (Of course you do.) Ever notice how the guy with the most friends was the one who usally won. Being a featured user definatly helps your overall YTMND SCORE. There are however exceptions to this rule; Featured users are for the most part featured users because they have mad YTMND skills. That is why a lot of featured users have high scores... you get what i am saying? T
December 5th, 2007

Hey korf...what bs are you yapping about? I don't even care what you are saying because all you are doing is stating the obvious. You haven't refuted any of my points yet. You can not "Disprove" that an average-user has the same initial ratings as a high-ranked user because you aren't backing any of your points up. You're merely stating that I am not backing any of my points. Unfortunately, I can not give you a nice graph of votes vs time, however,
December 5th, 2007

I have personally seen that many excellent sites from average users have started with a low score. Also as for the comments being highly ranked I did not say "Look at the friggin' high ranked comments!" I said look at the friggin' RATIO of 5's to 1's since there are not many votes in between. This would naturally lead a site by an average user to have a lower ranking because there WOULD BE MORE 1'S. A higher ranked user on the other hand would have less 1's because people would be nicer to them...
December 5th, 2007
(0)
Also, this isn't speculation. It's called deduction and what you are doing is called being a sore-ass...I don't know for whatever reason...heck just look at yer own 5's to 1's ratio. Also to make it clear to you, and I'll capitalize this: I SAID INITIAL VOTES SUCK FOR AN AVERAGE USER NOT TOTAL VOTES.

I think you might have woken up on the wrong side of the dildo. Next time be a little bit less aggressive in your responses.
December 5th, 2007

Yes, deduction from a set of unquantified unsystematic observations. Oh, wait, that's called speculation. And you somehow deduced that featured users' sites start at 5 and trickle down, while non-featured users' sites start low and trickle up. Well, sorry to say, but both phenomenons happen to both types of users for the same reasons, and your speculation to the contrary is spurious and unsubstantiated. You're a true American.
December 5th, 2007
(0)
As I said before I do not have physical proof but from my point of view that's what I could deduce. If you like commenting like a smart-ass at least have the brains to substantiate YOUR claims instead of attacking mine. All I see is you calling my deductions speculations. Bitch, please. Go teach yourself about fallacies and UNDERSTAND what the other side of the argument is saying before writing BS. If your next comment is more spurious idiocy then I think this debate is over.
