So that means a mod released late on the last day of the month can have its chance of fame destroyed if even one single vote is cast before midnight? not exactly a very fair system............
I think it means you have to actually place in the top four. Not that you got a vote. And yes it does punish late submissions. One of course can choose to hold off to the start of a month. Emma decided not to do that for sentimental reasons. A choice from the heart and since she is not bemoaning her choice obviously a wise choice.
Edit: Now 140 votes. 28-29 to go. Can you hear the love?
Yes, it has now closed on 147 votes and second place. Vilja may not have achieved first place but it is still a fantastic result in such a short time, and something for Emma to be very proud of. What is also great was the terrific support from Vilja's fans both on the Nexus and here too; not just in voting but also the things that have been said.
Sorry but I'm still grumpy. Popularity does not necessarily equate to quality. If Emma was so inclined she could have Vilja in first place month after month. Advertising, bullshitting, blowing popularist noise, that is what creates popularity.
I would also point out the irony here. What beat out Vilja? An info pile on how to keep the game from swallowing it's own face, arse first. Conversely, speaking as the world record holder for finding ways to crash Skyrim, Vilja is the most rock steady solid mod out there taking her complexity into account. Hrrrm. Fixing screw ups wins out against screw up free. Sounds about right.
It's alright. It's not that we don't mind popularity, we indeed prefer to maintain a low profile right now (popularity attract haters and we have more than enough of that). The only value I see for the mod of the month for us is to measure how much people appreciate the work we put on Vilja and it's clear you all do appreciate it a lot. I don't feel myself defeated precisely and I highly doubt any other member of the team does. I really want to thank you all.
On the other hand, despite how rock solid a mod is, having all the other mods acting would ruing everything. A good guide for fixing the game deserves some recognition too
Haters = Mental problems. If you don't like something, move on. If you keep it up in your face and bitch, go seek professional help.
People who dislike. "I DON'T LIKE THAT!" Childish. Add NYAAA NYAAA. Nobody ever will like everything they encounter. That doesn't mean the person needs to list what s/he doesn't like. If everyone did that with everything they didn't like, that's all that people would be saying. "I don't like that." To which our automatic response is, and this means what to us?
Vilja is a mod raised to an art form. Now take a nice cross selection of the beer swilling crowd of the mid west and lead them through the Lourve. You know there will be loads of derision. All the 'I don't like that' reflects upon the art viewed, or upon to skrinch brained flogwart who is viewing it?
Sniffles, unfortunately haters do not respond well to "professional help." If it's all "their" fault there is no need for "me" to change. Rarely one gets a hater who will come in and admit, "all this anger is causing problems in my life" you can make a little progress with those.
PS: Pinkie I like, though I'm more your Pre-Raphalite type.
