They rate PotD's to 1,because,they can.

 #4 - Posted by: Super_Llama (Staff) on 11-26-2008 at 07:23
They rate plenty of good pictures as 1, because they can, and it makes everyone angry.

They just happen to have awful lives, hurting others feels good, and they like the fact that they remain completly anomynus (if i spelled tht right). Also, i suspect they're compensating for something....

 #6 - Posted by: A_L_I_E_N (Member) on 11-27-2008 at 00:35
They are probably fat or ugly... or both :lol: I have a good life yay }>

 #7 - Posted by: Master_Zealot (Member) on 11-27-2008 at 05:57
Come on they just hate everybody, I mean why else?

 #8 - Posted by: Orchidea (Member) on 11-27-2008 at 07:24
because they say how things are (in most cases), and they say it straight, leaving all the little white lies behind.

 #9 - Posted by: Dimanche (Member) on 11-27-2008 at 08:08
Because their current social position is so low that they have to resort to being annoying by rating perfectly good things a 1/10 because they feel they are making an impact and that makes them feel important whenever they are unknowingly lowering themselves to an even lower social position and also making themselves look like idiots. I hope you die 1/10 raters. Blasted in the face with a buckshot. Hung and have pieces of skin ripped from you like Lucien Lachance. Run over by a WWII Panzer tank. Crushed by a Boeing 787 airliner. Tied to a nuclear missile and fired towards to moon, so you explode from the nuke and by having no pressure around you. Shined in the face by a flashlight with your eyelids held open so you turn insane, and then spontaneously combust. I figure I went a bit too far with that one. I wonder if this will be deleted?

They're just pathetic... just plain pathetic and I hate pathetic people. Like oh I'm so worthless I'm so ugly BOO HOO!!! I don't care if they're ugly or fat because I have no heart xD

You forgot to mention about the round house kick from Chuck Norris :lol:

 #12 - Posted by: BadHairDay (Member) on 11-28-2008 at 19:00
Just for this poll, every picture I look at will get a 1/10 from me. Even ones I like. Lighten up moderator.

 #13 - #9 from A L I E N - Posted by: Wesley_Readhead (Staff) on 11-29-2008 at 20:50
No No, when Chuck Noris does a press up he isn't pushing himself up hes pushing the World down :cool:

 #14 - Posted by: herosinger (Member) on 11-30-2008 at 19:49
They do it because it's the only power they have.

 #15 - Posted by: Snipefalcon2 (Member) on 12-02-2008 at 15:50
I think some picture arent that good, and dont appeal to me. If there is a 1/10 rating, it's because we can use it.

 #16 - The Lulz - Posted by: Massive_Killer (Member) on 12-04-2008 at 22:49
I think the 1/10 rating is quite simply for the Lulz.

 #17 - What kind of poll is this? - Posted by: Snipefalcon2 (Member) on 12-04-2008 at 23:35
And BTW, what kind of Poll is this??? It's not asking for anyone's opignion, it makes one opignion the only one. It is totaly biased, and unproffecional to post such a lame poll on a serious site like this. Come on admins, wake up. Stop complaning, and start doing your job. This website is becoming such a pain (No new files, lame rules like "It's possible to vote 1/10 on a picture, but you CANT do it!", biased polls, amdins ranting, etc etc) This is NO kindergarden. It's a site made BY fans, FOR fans. Grow up people...

 #18 - The kind that you misinterpreted - Posted by: Super_Llama (Staff) on 12-05-2008 at 07:31
I knew someone would say this. Snipe, I am talking about the CHRONIC 1/10 raters that do it for no apparent reason. They are complete trolls. I am BY NO MEANS talking about the HONEST 1/10 voters, in which case their vote MUST be accompanied by a Comment, or I will designate that vote as illegitimate because I have no way of discerning between them. If you think you can run the site better, be my guest, make an emploment request because I'm a little tired of being complained at (especially by people I know lol) I mean really, you validate a picture, people like floydian and roguesun complain about the 1 voters. You get rid of the 1 voters, and the 1 voters complain about it. What can a guy do? There's no answer! I think the best thing to do is require that a comment be posted with the valid 1/10 votes to discern between the useless and the not useless, don't you? And please don't accuse ME for the lack of files. I validate them as the come in. While I am super, I cannot force people to magically submit new mods out of thin air. That's your job. Its not my fault that there are no files. It is, however, my fault that there are no new polls. I'm sorry to say that I can't think of any, I'm trying to figure one out now... Admins are allowed to rant. Look, you just did it, and you're not even an admin. So why can't we rant? That's what admins are for. And if people thought this was kindergarten, do you think they would flame and rate 1/10? @12: that's fine with me if you want to be a troll, but just like everyone else your votes will be voided if they are illegitimate.

 #19 - hmmm - Posted by: SaphireFenix (Member) on 12-05-2008 at 09:56
I believe the 1/10 raters are hyperactive kids that have nothing better to do. "OMG what the crap kind of picture is that! COME ON I could do so much better! Retards! Who cares about an elf anyway! Imperials are so much better! RETARDS! How do you like 1/10 you idiot! Next time post a picture of a REAL race!" Something like that is what I believe goes on... all the while above kid runs around his computer room sipping his 8 gallon pepsi, munching on a bag of jelly beans, and screaming ^ that at the top of his lungs.. lol

 #20 - Posted by: IKS_Yo_Mama (Staff) on 12-05-2008 at 11:35
Because its how the network as always been from day one.. one-voters are part and parcel of the network

 #21 - Posted by: IKS_Yo_Mama (Staff) on 12-05-2008 at 11:36
Might I add that Admins shouldn't rant, we have to be objective and neutral thats why we are there

 #22 - Posted by: Super_Llama (Staff) on 12-05-2008 at 23:00
Good point #21, I'll try to be more objective in the future.

 #23 - Posted by: sbmayle (Member) on 12-06-2008 at 02:47
ummm... you guys to realize that this a gaming website? dont take things so seriously, they rate it a one to be annoying big deal, theres always going to be another potd. But the fact is that if someone rates the picture a one, either giving there personal opinion or to just be annoying, just ignore it! It doesen't affect you in th real world so why should you care. Also if your all getting into fits about the people rating a 1/10 to be annoying, then i can't wait until you get into the real world, because you will getting pissed off every day. :p

 #24 - Posted by: Super_Llama (Staff) on 12-07-2008 at 13:04
Its not me that's getting into fits, its the people who posted the potds.

 #25 - Posted by: Piestub (Member) on 12-08-2008 at 15:56
I'm guessing that sometimes its just some person who stumbles in from one of the other game sites. Maybe they don't like RPGs and just feel like messing up an otherwise fine site.

 #26 - Posted by: herosinger (Member) on 12-08-2008 at 18:47
Why are there no knew files? Because the good modders don't want to have to deal with people who think that they're justified in being rude.

 #27 - Posted by: herosinger (Member) on 12-08-2008 at 18:48
There's no edit function. That "knew" should be a "new."

 #28 - Posted by: Snoolio (Member) on 12-09-2008 at 02:33
SuperLlama, why don't you just write a program that makes all votes a 10. Hard as it is to believe there are sites where the people get along and can joke around without starting a fight. Eldar Scrolls files makes me a sad panda.

 #29 - Posted by: A_L_I_E_N (Member) on 12-09-2008 at 06:35
Can someone give me a sock?

 #30 - Posted by: herosinger (Member) on 12-09-2008 at 11:23
No one said anything about honest jokes, Snoolio. An anonymous 1 rating isn't a joke.

 #31 - Posted by: Snoolio (Member) on 12-09-2008 at 15:18
It's not real serious either. totally agree with #23.

 #32 - Posted by: Snoolio (Member) on 12-09-2008 at 15:19

 #34 - Posted by: Snoolio (Member) on 12-09-2008 at 15:20
Sorry about that. Technical dificulties.

 #35 - Posted by: Super_Llama (Staff) on 12-10-2008 at 08:12
@28: That is entirely impossible. All I'm doing is MONITORING the votes. I cannot control them in any way, except remove the ones that are illegitimate. I feel this poll discussion has run its course, I'm putting up a new one now
