Ok big rant coming.
Everyone says the system sucks - everyone said the old system sucked. As soon as people get zero-bombed, they whine. However I have been saying for years that its not the system's fault at all - but the people's mentality that use it. A system can't be flawed - only people and hte people that made it can be flawed. The voting system is not flawed - this is what is flawed.
everyone comes here, they bitch about how someone zero-voted their song - but HEAVEN FORBID they actually go to another user and dedicatedly five their music daily. Theyre hypocrites. They want everyone to five their stuff all the time but do absolutely NOTHING to earn it themselves. The old system was better for the one reason that you could only vote once. Since you could only vote on your own song once it actually FORCED you to rate other people's music, since obviously you could do nothing with your own.
Now all people do is five their stuff every day, and yes it is justifiable, I mean, you made you music, so of course you love it, right?but if every user in the audio portal, and ESPECIALLY in this audio forum, got their headout of their OWN ass every once in a while, found a few artists that they really loved, and every day popped by and gave their songs a five, users wouldn't NEED to five themselves! This site hasn't become corrupted - YOU GUYS have! You want change? You're the fucking lifeblood of this site - make it happen yourself! I'm TIRED of hearing people bitch about the problems of the newgrounds staff when they can't be assed to help out others - it really disgusts me. I five the users I love all the time.
I mean come on - you all whine and bitch that you're not on the charts, or that there is nothnig good on the charts - ok so if you dont like something - give it the score it deserves - that is your viewpoint anyways. But if you do not vote up other users that you think deserve to be there - CONSISTANTLY - one vote one day and then forgetting them does dick all in helping a user these days sadly - then your whining is not worthy of being listened to. The charts, the scores, everything depends on your OWN power and willingness to help others. You show some kindness to others, and they will show kindness towards you. You want a top 30 of artists that deserve to be there? Find like minded people and get them all to vote on users you think deserve it! Same with the regular charts - maybe then this site will actually revert back to how it USED to be, and some of the users who left the site might return. Honestly, everyone gets along in this forum, but its a vipers nest in the audio portal - and in some little way you are all to blame for not being good enough role models and doing your part to help out - mind you some of you DO - and thats great - but most of you just can't be assed.
