The real lifespan of a YTMND
Created on: August 27th, 2006
The real lifespan of a YTMND
This is pretty much what happens every time I make a YTMND. Songs are Herb Alpert - A Taste of Honey, Salt N Pepa - Push It, and Fina's theme from the Skies of Arcadia soundtrack, in that order. (No YTMNDs were downvoted in the making of this site).

So true. Sometimes a good site gets knocked off that way and people have to find them in the abyss again.

You jerk, you downvoted my site for the purpose of this one! Too bad I found this mildly amusing...

I actually only photoshopped the one-stars in. If you noticed, the alignment's a little off.

Sigh. This is the shame of YTMND. Downvoters and NARVs allow crap sites to stay on top while the good sites go unappreciated. That'd be the reason for upvoting right there.

I've found that if you leave some people positive comments/votes they go on to check out your sites....at least that is what i do....and get.....sometimes.

Hehe it's like a dirty trick, make a ytmnd about ytmnd's... I'd give it a lower score since it's been done before, but this is well done and amusing. It's growing on me, too.

WRONG! Your vote decays over time from angry downvoters that check out your profile. So expect that 3.75 to lose a few points every week.

Actually, as long as the user keeps making decent sites then you will pick up a few more views and votes here and there. I'll agree though, if it gets rated 3.8 or lower it pretty much dies.

The alternative is your site stays on up-and-coming throughout the day, then gets a few thousand views, struggles to stay top 15, then fails to hold. It's like a bottle rocket on the geological calendar.

Not to toot my own horn, but for evidence of how quickly a good YTMND can stall, check http://rmog-mrcantdonatetothesiteguy.ytmnd.com/ On opening day, it got three 1 votes and was only seen by random viewers again. I was bummed. :( [/wrist]

So so true. My second ever on the Up & Coming (http://alderaanexploding.ytmnd.com/ )was only on there for about 30 seconds until some lame *ss downvoters got at it. At least my first U&C one was there for a good hour or so.

There should be a place to view YTMNDs that are 3+, too. Not necssarily on the frontpage, but it'd be better than random, with all the crap you'd find there.

Hey my YTMND went off up and coming for about 45 mins, after that it shot back up to 3rd on the list. I guess I'm just lucky huh? 5 for you because I'm not a dick who goes around downvoting the up&comings higher than me so that mine will go up.
August 27th, 2006
(0)
pretty accurate. but sites can fall off and get back on all the time. if you are a more active user and people are clicking your profile then it has the chance for friendly eyes to give you a hand back up for a second chance. if you never vote or comment your profile will gain cobwebs.
August 27th, 2006

Yeah, yeah, sites aren't automatically always killed the second they leave the front page, and sometimes you can get back on the U&C after leaving it, but once it leaves and stays off you'll have a hard time getting traffic. Unless you're one of the really well known YTMNDers or have something on a topic that gets searched for (read: fads)

So THAT'S why my site got off U&C...over 200 votes! It got to 1,??? and then it disappeared off U&C and went to Highest Rated #3, then was quickly off and put on Top Voted, and EVEN AFTER ALL THAT, its never seen again...

That sounds about right... I've lost count of how many times I've been screwed over by a single downvoter, or worse, a downvoting bot that someone set up to say "you fail, please try again ^_^" or "FREE PENIS ENLARGEMENT" or "Urine is yellow, not white" over and over for every single site indiscriminately...
