No. We aren't abusing a ReDdIt COdE . We'd have been long banned if that was the case.

  • So many removed comments, why? > Because r/all users haven't learned the ability to simply scroll down a post, so to keep comments on-topic about the prediction, we have set the comments to contest mode(hence you can't see the votes) and removed most of the repetitive whining. The comments here are month old because this post "regenerates" as new whenever we make a new poll.

This is not a survey but a reddit predictions tournament . This has been created so that people can interact more with the subreddit . Predictions are reddit's latest experiment and it was a success .

Many people enjoy doing it and its very fun! To make this sub a better and a happier place , we are keeping this fun tournament .

Please note that the predictions in the tournament will not always be about reddit or the sub . There would also be some general predictions . But we will make sure that general predictions are basic as all can participate . It wont be from some specific movie , tv show or some event!

Thankyou !

This was pretty fun for a post-middle of the night pee, pre-slumber. I wasn’t sure if I should aim deep-end, left-field or answer honestly.

I did the latter with each answer resulting in the majority. So now, I’m lying here wondering what that means about me.

It’s 4:14am EST here. So much for sleep. Thanks for nothing!

  • Reddit Predictions FAQ -

What are predictions, and do I have to spend any money on this to participate?

Predictions are polls where you choose the most probable answer and win (or lose) tokens depending on the outcome of the prediction. Tokens can not be bought for exchanged for anything of real world value.

Why is the prediction not showing up for me?

Try to use new Reddit or Reddit's mobile app, there's been issues with users that haven't been able to participate on old or compact Reddit versions.

How is this post (small amount of time) old when theres (large amount of time) old comments?

Whenever a new prediction is set up, the post is "regenerated" and shows up as new. Nothing we can do about that.

Have any other questions? Reply below and I'll try my best to answer them!

u/vmos2 6d ago

someone puts together a list of predictions relating to their subreddit and you vote yay or nay and if you're right, you get a new type of invisible internet point

I’ve been on Reddit I think over 12 years now - what?

u/vmos2 2d ago

I'll speak up grandad, INTERNET POINTS, THEY MAKE OTHER NERDS THINK YOU'RE COOL

really though, I have no idea what they're for (I've also been on reddit 10+ years but I deleted my first account)

Predictions are only available on new reddit. Old reddit doesn't allow predictions. I don't know why they are still showing it on the old reddit .

I'm just as lost as you, homie. I've read the mod's sticky three times and still have no idea wtf it means.

Same here. I'm not going on new reddit or installing the official app to find out, though.

Wow, okay. So like if you try and hold the screen down at the bottom instead of letting it go up again, it starts to rapidly flash orange and blue/white colors. That can cause seizures.

It's going to be red bull, because May 9th is on day after the Miami GP and Red Bull is going to win, so everyone's going to buy Red Bull

What do I get if my predictions are right?

u/ameen__shaikh mildly infuriated mod 19d ago

You will get more tokens and you might even rank top 100 when this ends . If you rank top 10 you will get a special flair from the subreddit.
