Site ratings SHOULD be objective, but they never ever are. Case in point: sycophants flooding in as soon as max makes this a mod favorite
(0)
I've faved this site. You can't tell what I've voted!! Unless......
June 13th, 2006

I like this...especially because WoW ytmnds automatically get a 1 from me. I dont f*cking want to see a random screenshot of an orc in a field. I dont give a sh*t.
June 13th, 2006
(0)
then i give you a 3 according to your own standards
June 13th, 2006
(0)
it's funny how everyone's giving you crap for 'lacks humor' when one of your five-able criteria includes being thought provokative. DOWNVOTERS FAIL
June 13th, 2006
(0)
I'm not really sure whether I should give this a rating, but I'll say this: I hope your message gets across. There's way too many people with a "5 for Syncan/1 for Inkdrinker" mentality. We have 2, 3 and 4 star ratings for a reason, dammit.
June 13th, 2006

Lacks humor, and I don't see any sources sited.

Also for other stupid people, the point of GOOD & GREAT, not stupid and pointless, WoW YTMNDs are for the audio, not the visual... *sigh*...

I'll give you a 3
June 13th, 2006

freekowt, I cited the music source and I made the visual, what's the problem?
June 13th, 2006
(0)
What do you mean "there are more than 2 ratings"? Last time I checked, I could only vote once.
June 13th, 2006
(0)
More than two ratings means more than just 1 and 5.
June 14th, 2006
(0)
4 because it's true
June 14th, 2006

we all need this guide :P
June 14th, 2006

3 shouldn't necessarily be your average vote. For example, I only look at sites with the most views or at the top of the list because I don't want to waste my time.

I liked, I know its not humors other then the (1 star to 5 stars) at the beginning... I'm still giving it a 5 because it so true. I have a recommendation. Even though FAV(orite)ing isn't voting, people have been abusing it. adding FAV to every site. wouldn't that be included their... its like a new up/down vote thing. in another sense?

People need this YTMND. It's like the world of YTMND is black and white. or * and *****. We still have the other 3 ratings. Good work. 4 stars.
June 15th, 2006

Following the rules that you made, this YTMND lacks humor.
June 16th, 2006

As criteria for a 5 was "makes you laugh," this is clearly worth a 3.
(-1)
You got that one part wrong. You 1 when sources are cited and 5 when they are not. Makes it easier for EB.
June 16th, 2006
(0)
It doesn't have to meet EVERY criteria listed. I think about 2+ criteria makes it correct
June 17th, 2006

1'd for the WoW comment. If votes are subjective and if people are supposed to vote based on THEIR opinion, then telling people how to vote based on YOUR opinion makes you a hypocrit and an idiot.

go f*ck a level 62 dwarf f*ggot
June 17th, 2006

Also judging by your criteria you should automatically get a 1 because this YTMND references WoW.

Barely useful info.

actualy your average vote depends on what cites you view, if you only look at top 5/ top 15/ u&c, it will be more like 4, but if you vot eon the recently created cites its more like a 2

Yes, I agree. More ratings then just 1 & 5.

3 for effort, but a few things... for one, you're implying that every YTMND has to be funny. I can like a YTMND but not find it funny (it can have sexy women or a cool image loop). The WoW citing is out of place and not very funny, so according to your guide, I should vote 2, and you don't cite the "For Dummies" book series, which I'm sure you used to make this site. However, all that being said, it's a genuine attempt to be informational if only flawed.

I must say that after reading the comments for this site, you get a good idea of the variety of people on the internets. Depending on who you are, you can see why. Oh well, at least we have this fantastic thing AT ALL RIGHT.

It's really not your place to tell everyone how to vote, but you make an effort at improving YTMND, and that gets points.

f*ck you Wracraft Hater!!!!!!
June 24th, 2006

Combine your 4 and 5 together for the 4 rating, and say that a five should be one of the funniest things you've seen on the site. Also, I think that most fad derivatives should be 4 or below, and a scientology-related site has a vote system that starts at 3 instead of 1.

To be honest, I'm just a rabid upvoter. I've convinced everyone I know who views this site to either upvote a site they like, or place no votes at all. I do this so that the average ratings of all sites will go up.

i would say kill downvoters, who just becuase something has wow in it doesnt mean it cant be funny like chuck norris for example every thing that people use chuck norris with sux im not saying he sux im saying every retard that says hes awsome sux. that and the ytmnds suck.

June 29th, 2006

Your 5 criteria is far too easy. People should treat 4s like they normally do 5s. 5 should be reserved for the absolute best a site can get. But that will never happen.

July 3rd, 2006

Wow. It's like you read my mind. I'm sick of how most users vote as if 5 = good and 1 = bad and nothing in between. If you're going to give a good site a 5 then what are you going to give a truly great site. There's nowhere to go from there.

Okay, citing sources is NOT important at ALL. YTMNDs are often funnier if the source of the sound or sometimes the image is unknown. It creates more buzz and mystery. Take orly for example. If I had known that the sound was just some random song about aquatic life, it wouldn't have been nearly as funny.

It's just a guide, and a good one. If it said "upvoters and downvoters suck" I would give it a lower score--as it is, it just states a solid and sucient opinion.

I'll just try to balance out my one's and five's instead. Sorry, but to get around an average of 3, I need to downvote you. :(

There was a time...long ago... when citing sources was not an option. Some voters nowadays take this source citing crusade a bit far.

I never said that no sources automatically means 1. "A YTMND does not necessarily need to meet all criteria." Watch the whole thing next time before making a fool of yourself.

I'm giving this a 1 because it wasn't funny, or original, and because under your system, 5's are way too easy to give and 1-2's are too easy to give, and additionally, to give something a 1 or a 5, requires different reasons than just degrees of humor. And of course, the goal of every ytmnd is not humor, so you get a 2, not a 1.

As for a lack of citing and theft: an automatic 1 for theft should be only given under really a strong sense that the poster is trying to claim it as its own. Using 1's to try and stop some clutter and copies is not going to work either. More like 1 star off the rating because there was no source or its a duplicate is more reasonable. It's hard to be sure, really.

Actually, this is not really that far off as I make it seem, I'm just criticizing bitter little points and ignoring the general intention and affect of the ytmnd. Since I am capable of dynamic introspective thoughts, I will have my gut reaction and intellectual appraisal have discourse and reassign a rating more distanced from my subjective point of view.

You get my first vote of 3 stars. Actually 2.5 for lack of funny, but I'm feeling generous, and the phase of the moon helps.

I completely agree with you. Your YTMND was insightful, and it cited sources properly, therefore I give you a 5.

I do disagree with "aim for 3 stars as your average rating". Sturgeon's Law: 90% of everything is crud. Therefore, my average will tend to the low end of the scale.
