Blam/Protection Stat Whores 2011-07-13 23:38:17 Reply

For some reason, they piss me off more than all other stat whores. People who post one sentence or even one word posts piss me off to some extent, as well as people who leave reviews that are less than a sentence long, or don't really review the flash, so much as they say the word "AWESOME" twice.

Blam/Protection stat whores are the people who vote 5 on every single video under submission in order to get a higher rank. Naturally, most people's protection count will be higher than their blam count, because more videos make it on the site than get blammed. However, there are some people who vote 0 on almost nothing, and for rank alone (Don't give me any "I like ALL flashes" bullshit) 5 everything they see and call it voting. Anyone else a bit pissed off when they see people like that?

Pic relevant.

Doesn't bother me.

Why would short posts piss you off? I said everything I need to say, and anything else would just be fluff.

I only have a few BP points, because I'm honest when voting...

I actually considered using yours as an example, but it's not really that bad.

Matter of fact..almost everything I vote low or high on gets through, 0 and 5 bombers all suck. But Blams are really hard to get as opposed to saves.

I tend to give alot of below 3 ratings on 'under judgement' flashes.

I review them as I see fit, not just giving 5 too look cool on an internet forum.

It bothers me that a decent flash can get blammed by stat whores (unconditional negative).

Inversely, it also bothers me that shit gets by in part due to stat whores (unconditional positive).

I vote fairly.

Too bad whenever I vote 1's or 0's, everyone else votes 5's.

My point: It's not our fault. Think before you speak.


I can't come up with a decent saying, since everyone copyrights everything.

I got into the top 1000 rank and then Tom made pretty much anyone who has ever voted able to vote on the best of the month.

Not that I ever remember to do that because there is no real notification of when it is on or anything..

No. Don't stress about it. It's always happened and it always will.

Rank: Sup. Commander
Blams: 19,039 Rank #106
Saves: 22,875 Rank #109
B/P Rank #: 92

I like to think I vote pretty well.

I'm a stat whore and I vote very fairly. Don't assume we all mass 5 everything. I'd rather get blam points than protect points. Its just all very 'few and far between'.

You wouldn't think it looking at my bp stats but I do actually get like some of the most blams per month. Like I said it's just very hard because of the users you described.

Who honestly cares about stats? Sure it's something to show off once in a while, but it doesn't define you as a person.

The personality/content/pizzaz that you include in your posts define you as a NG user. The other stuff is just bling to add onto that.

Well, even being a stat whore, I try to vote fairly most of the time. But I still get a shitload more saves than blams. Blame other newgrounds users, lots of times that I voted 0-1 the flashes passed, while they didn't deserve to.

I gained 18 blams today, and you included me in this. I don't save everything. I blam shitty flash submissions, any madness flash, and stolen flashes.

My Protect/Blam ratio is 6.173. That's pretty much an average ratio.

Yeah I vote 5 on ALOT of submissions because saves are alot easier to rack up and you can reach ranks faster and you'll still get a high voting power as well that's the beauty of easy saves and spam submissions

You're a bad person and I regret voting for you as Funniest user.

Hell yeah girl, your a Top 5 Blammer every month, with Coop, myself and 2 other random voters. LOL.

I'd like to know how the 4th person (Rank 49) is a save whore. They have a Save/Blam ratio of 3. Really the only bad ratio in the image is the first and last person.

i think even more B/P stat whores vote 5 and 0 on submissions, rather than 0 or 5 alone. who does not want free blam point whenever he sees a poorly made flash submitted to the portal?

and i think a prtect/blam ratio around 6 or 7 is acceptable. to be honest, a majority of those submissions deserve to stay on newgrounds in my opinion.


I am just a random user from a set of measure zero and thus am negligible.

Yikes really? That's average? I would have thought a bit lower.

My Protect/Blam Ratio: 1.202. Pretty sweet.

Well, average for people that started B/Ping in the past year, like myself. I only average 5 blams per day. Occasionally I get 8-18, though.

Nothing wrong with people just trying to rank up.
