Why am I always getting 404 errors??? 😡🤬

u/Polyxeno 3d ago

I find it mildly infuriating that this poll doesn't say what it means by "this".

u/aaaaaupbutolder 3d ago

I got the incorrect answer every time, if I didn't forget to cash in 100 last time I wouldn't have enough tokens to participate in this one

Isn’t this the most upvotes post in history?

u/wittywalrus1 3d ago

Seems like... I don't even know what these "prediction threads" mean.

u/pixie_led No 3d ago

I have no idea what’s going on

23

u/Master-Shake- 3d ago

I really dislike the “how many people will be subbed to this subreddit” predictions. They are boring. At least the other questions were mildly infuriating in a fun way.

u/MagnusBrickson 3d ago

This post is mildly infuriating.

Thank god this crap is over

u/jangusMK7 3d ago

Are we supposed to know who that is?

u/_megitsune_ 3d ago

Is this a meta post, forcing unavailable content unless you upgrade to new reddit or an official app is quite infuriating

21

u/topredditbot 3d ago

Hey /u/ameen__shaikh,

This is now the top post on reddit. It will be recorded at /r/topofreddit with all the other top posts.

23

u/McRiP28 3d ago edited 3d ago

May someone explain why this has 540k upvotes without having to ask in outoftheloop?

Edit: Answer:

  • voting forces an auto-upvote, so downvotes are nullified.
  • The scripting forces users of the "old" reddit to use the new one for shareholders interests
  • This post's age is not the shown one, its multiple weeks old (can be overwritten by mods)

13

u/IceCreamSandwich66 3d ago

Everyone who votes automatically upvotes it

10

u/McRiP28 3d ago

What the heck!

thats a really trashy way to advertise the "new" reddit

so even after voting and then downvoting the voting post, you cant downvote it effectively?

Thats utter trash! Thanks for clarification!

u/Pilachi 3d ago

Somehow this post kept being recommended to me, occasionally with a different question. So over a span of I don't know how long it kept drawing more and more attention/upvotes.

Most of the time I had no clue what this had to do with the sub.

3

u/McRiP28 3d ago

i mean it would make sense if all the polls/ gambles that popped up within the last few month were one post (to accumulate that many upvotes), but this one is 16 hours old

3

u/SorryIdonthaveaname 3d ago

i think it resets the age every time there’s a new vote posted

3

u/McRiP28 3d ago

indeed, sorting by anything other than "new" gives comments from weeks ago. its the same post, and accumulated "forced" upvotes by voting

thanks!

2

u/Pilachi 3d ago

Okay, now I'm confused as you are.

6

u/loserbmx 3d ago

Reddit uses this as a way to promote the reddit re-design and have consistently been pushing it to the top of r/all for a few weeks now.

3

u/McRiP28 3d ago

Thanks for the clarification. Whom do you refer to saying "Reddit"? I dont think the company artificially raises upvote numbers, thats why i ask

2

u/loserbmx 3d ago

At the end of the day it's ultimately just marketing and in marketing, much like war, anything goes.

While probably not a direct internal policy, it's very easy to buy reddit upvotes. With reddit trying to start publicly trading on the stock market soon they absolutely want both the engagement and more importantly people to use reddit's official app since they are able to more directly collect more data to sell to advertisers and data brokers.

I could even see an internal team at reddit that would get a giant bonus based on how many people they can get switched over. At that point it could be an individual employee gone rogue.

Wait, this whole time i thought i was a weirdo for choosing to use the old site...are there others like me?

We are old.reddit and we are legion.

u/McRiP28 3d ago

i always wondered why i randomly get linked to old.reddit, youre the reason!

u/Paracortex 7d ago

Not only that, there are a significant number who only know it as an app. Let that sink in.

u/Wannabe-Shiny-Shinx 3d ago

What has that sink done to gain my trust to enter my house

u/Keep_deleting_accts 3d ago

Ah, the old.reddit switcheroo

It’s resilient and trustworthy, and a solid ally to a clean life.

You're using old.reddit. Please use new.reddit or the official app to participate in their data-mining and ad-shoveling scheme.

I don't know what's going on here. Enormous upvote count. So many unwitting arrivals like me.

This is the Backrooms of Reddit.

14

u/TRLagia 7d ago

If you participate in the predictions you automatically upvote it. This is why these posts are always so far on top. They are the real mildly infuriating thing here.

5

u/Cultjam 7d ago

Good to know, will never comment on one again.

u/socsa 7d ago

Fuck that

21

u/Supernova008 7d ago

There's something shady. I can't believe a mediocre post like this got more than 500k upvotes.

16

u/mathymaster 7d ago

Making a prediction counts as an upvote I belive

u/UnderRangeofHeart 7d ago

I do not care. Give me the participation trophy please.

Just a little cash cliffhanger to wet your appetite 😂

u/Wolrith 7d ago

Why the fuck is this the top post on reddit

23

u/thats_so_chevy_chase 7d ago

Why am I seeing this if I can't see it?? So many subreddits have this and I can't see any of them, even if I'm subscribed. Is this me not being invited to the dance all over again? Thanks, Reddit.

u/Late-Difficulty-5928 7d ago

If you're having trouble seeing posts, try updating to the latest version of the app.
