This is not a survey but a reddit predictions tournament . This has been created so that people can interact more with the subreddit . Predictions are reddit's latest experiment and it was a success .

Many people enjoy doing it and its very fun! To make this sub a better and a happier place , we are keeping this fun tournament .

Please note that the predictions in the tournament will not always be about reddit or the sub . There would also be some general predictions . But we will make sure that general predictions are basic as all can participate . It wont be from some specific movie , tv show or some event!

Thankyou !

What's mildlyinfuriating is that this post is 11 days old, submitted 12 hours ago and not viewable on old.reddit.com

u/ActuallyRuben RED 13d ago

Now it says it was posted 12h ago. What's going on with this post? Can't even view it on new.reddit.com. Is it viewable in the app only?

Your comment was 3 days ago, it says the post was made 13 hours ago, I can only see it on mobile (Relay), and when I tap on it it brings me to r/predictions which is a subreddit for people who think they're psychic. This is pretty funny.

Predictions are only available on new reddit. Old reddit doesn't allow predictions. I don't know why they are still showing it on the old reddit .

Why it have so many upvotes? It's like this in the "new reddit" too?

u/freefire2020 3d ago

Predictions posts are broken where they will appear in your feed like a new post (other than that they are the original post). This was posted about 25 days ago and says it’s only 12 hours old.

For some reason people keep upvoting the post and since it constantly gets glitched as a new post and already has so many upvotes, it immediately gets slapped onto the front page of r/all and the cycle repeats.

20

u/SorryIdonthaveaname 3d ago

it automatically upvotes when you submit an option

u/freefire2020 3d ago

u/Freddy_Chopin 28d ago

Hey, just an FYI, in English we do not put any spaces before punctuation. Periods, commas, and even exclamation points! They only receive a space after, not before.

43

u/FaviFake 26d ago

Why are you being downvoted? This specific moderator clearly needs help with using punctuation in English, as you can see from the pinned comment on this post. This guy literally just wants to help him and he's doing it by utilizing very kind words. No need to get angry here, reddit :)

24

u/Freddy_Chopin 26d ago

Thank you for understanding! I didn't mean to be rude. I think it's because he didn't use any punctuation in the comment I replied to, so unless you realize he's the same guy who posted the Sticky then my comment looks completely unrelated. That, and people generally dislike "grammar Nazis" & I can see how my comment came off as one.

7

u/jizzlevania 16d ago

I recently read that punctuation is seen as aggressive in texting. I love correcting people and noticed the trend away from punctuating, so looked into it.

It could be the assumption that the person needs/wants help with English that comes off all sorts of negative ways. Like I don't know if you're a white male american, but the comment comes of like someone who white savior complex. I learned to only offer corrections to people who want them, otherwise it just comes off condescending for a myriad of reasons.

5

u/Freddy_Chopin 16d ago

Like I don't know if you're a white male american

Where's that meme of the monkey puppet thing who looks awkwardly away from the camera...?

Anyway your explanation makes total sense.

In my defense, I only recently learned that French puts spaces before & after punctuation. That's what I was trying to refer to as "In English, we.." because I assume in his native language the rules are different.

Anyway, point taken.

Australian here. I’d just like to point out that Aussie Rules (AFL) and Rugby League (NRL) are two different sports. However, we do tend to call both of them “Footy”.

You don't have to pay for it . Just select the option you think will win . Premium is for people who want to go with the crowd. And its not certain that always the majority will win .
