Are people really that stupid?

The amount of times people are re-nominated in the awards is ridiculous. I demand they are infracted for stupidity. :<

Re: Are people really that stupid?

Just about anything can fall into the "General Stupidity" category.

Re: Are people really that stupid?

Happens every year, due to either laziness of not reading the first post where the conditions are stated, or by not reading others posts.
Infractions are harsh.
I'd be happier if something like deletion was done instead, so they had to consider their nominations more carefully.

Re: Are people really that stupid?

SOMEONE GO MAKE A ***** ABOUT EVERYTHING AWARD AND NOMINATE DANIEL 20 MILLION TIMES.

loljaykaydon'tcryily4eva

People are throwing away precious nomination posts. Oh god no.

(srsly, though, I think one year some of the mods did a "buzzer" thing and it was pretty lolzy to see whenever there was a repeat nomination. Probably tedious on the part of the mods, I think)

Re: Are people really that stupid?

People who nominate a person twice should lose posting privelages until the awards are over.

Sound fair?

It was. And people kicked a fuss over it. D:

Are you serious?
As far as I recall, Mr. Shaffer, weren't you the one nominating one specific member for everything for the lulz?



Just sayin'.

The difference is that what I did wasn't against any rules. Much less THE FIRST ONE IN ALL THE THREADS.

Re: Are people really that stupid?

No it wasn't.
But it was also aggravating.

Never the less, your point is absolutely valid.
So I went into the first of the threads there and tried to get rid of repeats. I got bored very quickly and left it. :/

People can help out though by reporting the repeats in posts via the report button, and we can then edit them out. I suggest doing that next time you see a repeat nomination. :]

I would say not to post in any ZU awards, even to vote for whoever after the person is nominated.

Losing posting privelages all together is kind of unfair.

It was only aggravating if you had preconceived notions about how nominations should take place. I was doing nothing wrong. :3

This story made me moist.

I'm going to report people SO HARD

EDIT:

I guess people couldn't tell that my described punishments were completely in jest. =/

Re: Are people really that stupid?

Does it even matter? If someone's nominated twice and the mods catch it, it takes .4 seconds to skip over the post.

If they don't catch it. Well, it still doesn't matter.

Oh, my mistake, I might have posted nominated for the same category, but that's why they invented the edit button, I guess.

Re: Are people really that stupid?

Guys, guys, calm down. If we all work together, we can figure out a solution that will benefit me the most. And isn't that what this is really all about?

I am really not at all sure, what this is about. I think it has something to do with two trees, the population of South America, and an old video game console.

Re: Are people really that stupid?

It doesn't really matter since it's some imaginary Awards on the Internet. It's not supposed to make sense.
