Hey you. Yes you. When's the last time you took a serious look at what makes it through the portal? Why don't you spend a few minutes and look at it now. Don't worry, I'll wait...
...did you see it? Did you see the mountain of shitty, unworthy entries that make it through? That's because people have no idea how to vote. Since most submissions pass judgment, rather than actually watching an entry and judging it fairly, people just open it, vote 5 and move on, often without even knowing what it is they're voting on. People are playing the numbers game: most flashes pass, so odds are voting 5 will get a save point.
You need to cut it out.
The point of the portal is not to inflate a statistic on your profile which is essentially meaningless. The point is to make sure that only flashes that are worth seeing make it through the system. The point is to be a buffer so that people can say "this is utter trash, this shouldn't be here" and get rid of the crap. You people who are voting 5 blindly are literally ruining the reputation of Newgrounds.
I'm not saying everything should be blammed, I'm saying you need to be more critical of what you vote to save. Actually watch the thing before deciding how to vote, and then vote honestly rather than with how you think the masses will vote. If a submission is crap, vote 0 or 1. If it's okay but nothing special, vote 2 or 3. If it's awesome, vote 4 or 5. But don't arbitrarily vote 5 just because 4 out of 5 submissions pass and you want the save points. If you're only here to increase the number of saves you have, then you're here for the wrong reason.
You're on Newgrounds. Care about it.
