Plenty going on... New game from matt-likes-swords, some new spam crew that has crawled out of the depths of hell that call themselves the Lucky Stars (They're better than Kitty Krew however...), and all sorts of other junk.
Well, the shit hit the fan over the inactivity period of the NGDD:
1. Bahamut stopped doing the B/P Ranks 51+ list on Wi/Ht?
2. Total crap is passing. Unless it screams out loud, "BLAM ME!" it still passes
3. Blind voting and dishonest statwhoring are rampant.
Basically, give it a generic name and a 5 MB filesize, and it's gonna pass. Some discussion on General has given me a pretty good idea of the general population's voting habits. Many will vote for the points (i.e., vote 2 on spam), some vote 5 on everything except surefire blams, and others have more unique voting habits.
Either way, the statwhores are winning. Those of you who vote dishonestly just for the points, shame on you. We need as many fair voters as we can manage.
