How to Get 100+ Updoots in Share

A Satirical Tutorial

Hello people this tutorial will cover all the basics and some advanced techniques on how to get easy upvotes on your share posts.
(Please note that this is a satire and not meant to offend or downplay people and their creations)

Background Information

Basically the Share forum of Repl.it is a lot of spam, but sometimes you'll find something good. But what makes it worthy of being noticed? Is it high-effort? or is it the type of project? Well that's what this tutorial is about!
Also, why should I care about upvotes? Well they get you cycles, useless internet points that only people who don't have meaningful things to do try and obtain. Now on that note, onto the tutorial!

Please note that all this information is based on facts and statistics, not just senseless conjuring!

What Language Should I Be Using?

Well based on simply scrolling through the top posts in Repl Share, you can see that Python is the language that gets that most upvotes!
But why is that, well a couple reasons:

  • Most people on Repl.it learn Python or are learning Python, so most of your audience doesn't care much for C++ Repls, or Ruby Repls, or PHP Repls.
  • Python is the easiest language, and arguable the most widely taught language

So Step 1, make a Python Repl Project! Onwards.

Okay, Now What Do I Make?

Using more current data, posts that easily get upvotes aren't ones that have real utility (such as a Repl.it User Searchbar), but instead console games! All your popular posts are easily created, low-effort, console games.
It's pretty easy to create these, simple nest if statements like so:

This will generate an error because Rayhan can't Python

This of course will only get you an easy 5 or 6 upvotes, to get 100+ you need to add console colors, you should add a good story, and of course you should have ASCII art. A combination of this and less than a day's worth of work will get you on the path to 100+ upvotes.
Your best friend here is current trends. Making a console "simulator" or console "test" that relates to something relevant and popular will get you instant upvotes! Also, be sure to plagarise popular code to make projects that are out of your league. Please don't plagarise projects. Plagarisim is a serious problem that will be dealt with severely.

So Step 2, make an if-else console game, using some simple techniques! Onwards.

Alright, I'm Ready for Posting, What Do I Do?

You my friend are on the last step to getting 100+ upvotes. Now let me give you some pointers:

  • Use Markdown
  • Beg for Upvotes
  • Use screenshots of your game and random memes
  • Bad grammar
  • Make it sound better than it is
  • Talk for longer than needed
  • Ping Random people
  • Say it’s your best game

And that's all you need to do! Very simple, and remember nobody will look at your post but in case they do it should look good enough to fool the mods into not taking your post down for spam!

So Step 3, create a post that is very click-baity! Onwards.

Congratulations, you are ready for 100+ Upvotes!

You reached the end of this tutorial, amazing! Now go out into the world with your new knowledge.

About this Post

This wasn't made to offend anyone, neither was it made to downplay some amazing Python projects, simply to show how flawed the Repl Share system is and how projects that have actual meaning are never fully appreciated. People put lots of work into projects, and when they choose to share them please give them the attention they deserve.
Doing everything in this tutorial won't get you 100+ upvotes, but there are several parts of this tutorial that do have real proof and have real effects.

Step 1 - Be squid
Step 2 - Make web game
Step 3 - Stonks


or


Step 1 - Be cookie
Step 2 - Be on repl.it 25 hour a day
Step 3 - Profits

realTronsi

@DynamicSquid 40 hours*

RayhanADev

@DynamicSquid yes, but you forgot:
Step 1 - Be furret
Step 2 - Be super nice
Step 3 - Stonks & Profits!

DynamicSquid

@RayhanADev lol yeah! But guys seriously real question how does Coder100 have so many cycles? We need to overthrow him

RayhanADev

@DynamicSquid hmmm, our options:

  • Force repl to add share cycles feature and we all give cycles to one person
  • Hack the API because it’s so out in the open
  • Upvote each other’s posts? (we’d get there, eventually)

(I love how we’re plotting in the comments)

DynamicSquid

@RayhanADev Interesting... Well, Coder100 spends 40 hour a day commenting and answering questions, but I don't think any of us want to spend our time like that so I think we're gonna have to go with your ideas.

Oh maybe, what if one of us becomes CEO of repl.it and awards themselves more cycles than Coder? I think that would work!

RayhanADev

@ amasad
Hey um, can possibly you resign so me or squib could become CEO. Thanks!

BD103

I'm all for upvoting each other's posts, but maybe we should all work on a giant group project that gets lots of hype? @DynamicSquid @RahanADev @realTronsi

fuzzyastrocat

@DynamicSquid Just leave it at step 1 — Be squid or Be cookie :D

DynamicSquid

@BD103 lol no that was a joke don't upvote each other posts it's against the rules

DynamicSquid
RahulChoubey1

@DynamicSquid @RayhanADev @realTronsi how come the Coder100 hasn't noticed yet if he's on 100 hours a day?

DynamicSquid

@fuzzyastrocat We should all change our pfp and name to match Cookie's, and see if we jump in cycles :)

DynamicSquid

@RahulChoubey1 Cause squids can camouflage and he can't see me

RahulChoubey1

@DynamicSquid good stuff

can red do the same?

h

RayhanADev
TANMAYBAGADIA

@RayhanADev lol , yaa but how does Coder100 has this many cycles and if he is having , then why isn't he a moderator

DynamicSquid

@TANMAYBAGADIA Cycles doesn't mean your a mod...

TANMAYBAGADIA

@DynamicSquid so is there a specific criteria? i am curious

ThisUserTaken

@DynamicSquid @RayhanADev Coder100 is reaching 10000 cycles. We must take action before its too late. and its freezing cold

ThisUserTaken

@DynamicSquid @RayhanADev by next week, according to my calculations, coder 100 will have 10000 cycles and become coder 10000 and then get 1000000 cycles and repeat

Codemonkey51

To answer the question why coder100 has so much cycles I would like to tell you somethings I observered:
1) users who are popular get more upvotes
2) clickbait with all the [ GAME ] tag stuff
3) script kiddies like him

As an example for #1: his poet with a private repl got like 7-8 upvotes before he relized and publiced the repl, proving the point popularity affects cycle gain.

@DynamicSquid

Whippingdot

I don't want Coder1000 PLEASEEEEE. And I wish this was a real tutorial @RayhanADev, I ain't gettin' no upvotes. 😢😢😢

Whippingdot

I am a spammer. A robot. I am copy pasting this everywhere. UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Why is everyone roasting @Coder100 Coder1000 @Codemonkey51

elipie

@DynamicSquid @RayhanADev GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS YOU SEE THE REAL ALGORITHIM IS TO BE A PIE AND THEN POST TUTORIALS smh

Jeydin21

@RayhanADev nonono, do this
Step 1 - Be nyan
Step 2 - Go wheeeeeee
Step 3 - Profits

RayhanADev

@Jeydin21 lmao xD.

Whippingdot

Wait a second, did you change your profile pic @RayhanADev. You look,

Disgusting

jk

RayhanADev

@Whippingdot wow...
give truth is it good or should use different one.


Whippingdot

Oh, and @RayhanADev, I am going to use your tips and use random usernames like @WheatenLoki9955, @Coder100, @DynamicSquid, and @fuzzyastrocat in my MadLibs generator, thanks for the tips. 👍👍🤣🤣😁

RayhanADev

@Whippingdot nononono I hope you’re just kidding xD.

Whippingdot

Oh, My GODDD. The second one is soooo cute. Use that @RayhanADev

Whippingdot

Oh, if you say so @RayhanADev
Replying to:

@Whippingdot nononono I hope you're just kidding xD.

TsunamiOrSumth

WTF IS THE SECOND ONE
MANGA OR CHIBI ONLY ACCEPTABLE ART STYLES
@RayhanADev @Whippingdot

Coder100

imagine being overthrown cant relate @DynamicSquid

Whippingdot

I have noo idea what you are talking about @tsunami21

Whippingdot

Ohhhh, a secret team is building to overthrow the great ruler, @Coder100 !!!

TsunamiOrSumth

@Whippingdot GO. MANGA. Or. GO. HOME.

Coder100

@Whippingdot i wonder how...

RayhanADev

@Whippingdot new pfp!!!

Whippingdot

Yayyyy It is awesome. @RayhanADev

RayhanADev

@Coder100 stealth attacc in middle of night

Whippingdot

@Coder100 Who knows, I might even be on the team. You are working with me on a project soo... I am finding your weak points. Be careful. They will get you

Coder100

i dont see what my weak points are but ok @Whippingdot

Whippingdot

😁😁😁😁😁🤔 @Coder100

RahulChoubey1

@DynamicSquid or
Step 1 - be red
Step 2 - get everyone to think you're sus
Step 3 - make half-decent repls that no one likes :(
Step 3.5 - notice that a billion people already had that idea for your repl and made it 10000x better :'(
Step 4 - look at all the big guys and regret going in meta

RayhanADev
Bookie0

Also, why should I care about upvotes? Well they get you cycles, useless internet points that only people who don't have meaningful things to do try and obtain.

yea so don't make a tutorial about it

All your popular posts are easily created, low-effort, console games.

False. Many popular projects (popular being +100 cycles) are NOT low-effort and are actually very good.

Also, be sure to plagarise popular code to make projects that are out of your league.

SMH don't joke about stuff like that plagiarism is serious

Beg for Upvotes

NONONONONNONONNO

Bad grammar

NONONONONONONONO

Ping Random people

NONONONNONONONO

they do it should look good enough to fool the mods into not taking your post down for spam!

mods are smarter than you think, they will take down a post with the help of the reporters (who report posts)


and ya can add syntax highlighting you know with py after the 3 backslashes (`)

JBloves27

lmao xD @Bookie0

Bookie0

im not jk lol :) @JBYT27

JBloves27

lol :) @Bookie0

RayhanADev

@Bookie0 this is a satire, I’m not being serious and don’t advocate anyone to actually do this xD. Not everything in here works, but a lot of it actually does you’d be surprised.

Bookie0

@RayhanADev lol no need to post and advertise how to get cycles if you're not being serious lol

RayhanADev

@Bookie0 o.o
I mean, like I said it’s a satire. The point of a satire is to highlight how corrupt something is xD. I do get what you’re saying but I seriously felt the need to make some thing like this for the comdei and for the faxx.

Bookie0

@RayhanADev some people might get the wrong impression..

RayhanADev

@Bookie0 well I mention at least three times that this is satirical. Do you have any suggestions to make it even more obvious?

Bookie0

still, some people could always think it's correct. Since you're making a big post about it, they might not think too much about the satire, and might still do it @RayhanADev

RayhanADev

@Bookie0 at that point it’s out of my hands xD. Again, I get what you’re saying but so far I don’t think anyone’s taken this seriously so I doubt anyone will.

Bookie0

@RayhanADev ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

RayhanADev

@Bookie0 ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ

Bookie0

PLEASE DON'T!!! We already hade something like this, and cycles don't count!!!

Bookie0

please don’t!!!

BD103

This is........
accurate.
To an extreme.

Send help :P

elipie

so true @BD103

BD103
RayhanADev

@BD103 thank you!

realTronsi

@RayhanADev I made the algorithm :(

RayhanADev

@realTronsi not all of it (but you admittedly did inspire me to make this), eli gave me most of the ideas. I can ping/credit you if you want!

realTronsi

@RayhanADev eli came up with the joke before me?! I told the joke to Moca way before I told it to you lol

Anyways you forgot the part about

  • creating alts to upvote for you
  • being 9 yrs old
  • saying its your best game
  • make 20000 sequels
  • make a tutorial on how to get 100 upvotes
  • start being an actual good coder
  • get no upvotes
  • cry in depression
  • realize you were an idiot child
  • laugh about it
  • realize repl is full of children
  • leave repl
RayhanADev

@realTronsi dang! Okay, I’m adding a lot of that.

BD103

Oh. That's fun. @realTronsi
*Sarcasm

RayhanADev

@realTronsi wait, I’m reading

make a tutorial on how to get 100 upvotes

and I’m wondering why I don’t have 100 upvotes 🤔

realTronsi

@RayhanADev you got 7 in the first 20min

realTronsi
Whippingdot

What???? @realTronsi

realTronsi

high school @Whippingdot

Whippingdot

Yup, high schoolers own the population of Repl.it, though
I am not one yet. Next year. @realTronsi

realTronsi

@Whippingdot next year? You have hs when you're 12-13?

CodingCactus

yeah I'm just gonna unlist and lock this cuz it's encouraging you to break the rules and beg for cycles, which is not in any way what repl talk is for.

CodingCactus

you need to escape that '

RayhanADev

@CodingCactus 🤦‍♀️ duh. Thank you xD.

JKE010

1) Create 100 different email accounts
2) Create 100 different repl accounts
3) Eat 100 cookies (crucial step here)
4) Use those 100 repl accounts...to do absolutely nothing and try to make a decent program instead. or just upvote your stuff 100 times

Coder100

Imagine having to do all of that to get cycles
pfffft

step 1: advertise

the end

JBloves27
RayhanADev

Codemonkey51

Hrmmm my 3 step plan:
step 1) be famous on repl talk
step 2) make bad quality posts
step 3) post often, but not too often

Aka:

1) be cookie
2) post must be click baity
3) post like once a week, and delete any posts the don't trend to delet the evidence

Whippingdot

UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

TANMAYBAGADIA

How to use markdown? idk how to use it , I am serious .

Whippingdot

Press the button which says 'Style your post with Markdown' Or just click on Markdown in this message.
@TANMAYBAGADIA

TerryLong

I'm new and I need to use this website for my class, can anyone help me. #firsttime

RayhanADev

@TerryLong sure (but tomorrow, I need to sleep now). #coderdreams

Whippingdot

Won't your teacher teach you how to use it. + I was a new user 3-4-2 weeks ago(I don't know which) and I figured out how to use this by myself by looking at some tutorials on this website @TerryLong

RahulChoubey1

Wow, so descriptive when running program

what do you mean in the code tho?

RayhanADev

@RahulChoubey1 thanks xD! and where? What part?

RahulChoubey1

@RayhanADev sys.stdout's output

RayhanADev

@RahulChoubey1 ah, I think I know what you’re talking about. I just mean that posts like the ones in this satire get too many upvotes than they should and Repl needs to work on that. Also Repl needs like reCaptcha when publishing posts so spam doesn’t happen.

JBloves27

nice tutorial, lol

JBloves27

lol

Very much accurate :)

RayhanADev

@JBYT27 thank you lmao!

RayhanADev

@JBYT27 yes.

JBloves27

lmao :) @RayhanADev

TsunamiOrSumth

komedi

RayhanADev

@tsunami21 faxx meanwhile I also made 99 bottles of jooce in LOLCODE

elipie

Repl.it should add a page called High-Effort, and moderators move things that are high effort into there (tutorials, templates, share posts, etc;) and then the High-Effort gets on the Trending page, while the moderators have to search for very low-effort posts. Maybe a new role called Helper that they can help the mods with finding low-effort posts.

elipie

Good at everything Rayhan is bad at

Please add more specifiaction.
Like so :
Eli is an intelligent boy who knows python, C++, HTML,CSS,JS, node.js, and Unity, he is learning Ruby and Rust.(xd)
(plz dont add thiS)

RayhanADev

@elipie too late, already added it xD.

elipie

@RayhanADev oh noes.

elipie

@RayhanADev at least add something so it doesnt make you look like a JS zombie xD

elipie

yessir.

RayhanADev

Alright people, agree or disagree?

TANMAYBAGADIA

@RayhanADev i disagree , all things are not accurate but this one was funny lol

Bookie0

disagree @RayhanADev

[deleted]

agree to you @Bookie0
