sorry galena i didn't have time to properly answer you at first. let me shed some light on you since you obviously have no clue about statistics and odds, but are pretty quick to say someone else doesn't.



the option that got the last 20 votes in a row was the 3rd one, 'no but ill keep playing' which put it at 15%.

15% odds, or 3/20 as we will use here in this explanation that you asked for.

so to get 2 in a row, you take 3/20 times 3/20. = 9/400. which is a little over 2% chance to get 2 votes in a row for a 15% option.

in this case there were 20 votes all put on it in a row.
to get 20 in a row, you take 3/20 times itself 20 times. i don't need to go that far and most calculators give it as impossible number anyway.
lets do 5 in a row
243/3200000= .0000759

so to get just 5 in a row for a 15% odd , there is less than 1/100th of one percent chance.
do you really still believe that 20 in a row is not a statistical impossibility? nothing fishy went on eh?

All the users posting moronic pictures really do tell the story of how dinosaurs once ruled the world with iron fists and cheese burgers.

Y'know another thing that can lose votes? Database errors. Kind of like the one right as the poll was closed.

No, I didn't get that far down the image...

20 + 2 = 22 - 1 - 1 - 1 = 19... my math still fits tho.

That is surely nice, I didn't catch that before.

Any "minute" putting in to get through the codebase of the TC is a waste of time better put elsewhere, namely the OR. Once it's done TC code will get down the bucket.
I don't know if you own a car or not, question is, would you REALLY repair a wreck to take it to the junkyard soon? I doubt you will.

I believe the term "ninja delete" was used not too long ago, props and +1 to whom did. I believe that is partially why it was ninja'd.
