You work HARD on your new idle game!
Then, after some time, you post it on repl.it!
However, nobody upvotes your post.
And, you have promised your friend you will get to 100 cycles today! You are at 90 and desperately need 10 to get those $10!
Using this hacky method made by
If the mods see, we won't be able to use this hacky method anymore :(
Cycles may not be the most interesting thing on repl.it, but that will soon change. According to@mat1, a local repl.it moderator, Cycles will be used soon to be made into a priceless currency to buy faster-compiling machines for a better experience on repl.it! Better stock up on cycles soon :)
Did you know: repl.it uses graphQL
Low effort single line
print(eval(input()))with 88 cycles. People still defend these by saying exactly what you just said.
Actual interpreter with no external dependencies and a hand-written parser, supports variables, tables, functions and while loops. 12 cycles.
the common repl.it upvotes problem.
I personally think that this is because repl.it is not developed enough as a community to really react to spam. Give something like StackOverflow. If you post some funny answer, it will most likely get a lot of downvotes and get removed, because it probably has happened before.
print(eval(input()))is not funny. this isn't a joke forum, if you want jokes go to reddit instead of flooding repl talk with these very bad jokes. the actual projects being shared get pushed down every time a joke post is uploaded. none of those joke posts were actually funny at all Tell me how "python3 interpreter" is constructive in any way, but if I made an actual python interpreter it would basically just be ignored
Then that sarcastic post over there titles itself
COOL PROJECT and gets many many cycles.
You say "wow this sounds like a cool project" and open it.
coolest project ever lol +1 if you liked
Im sure you can see how this can annoy people who only post once in a blue moon because most of their projects take that long to finish
Hey,@CSharpIsGud and @3465728974563! I was checking out @Coder100 's profile, and I came across this. Reading the comments, there seemed to have been a debate here. 1) What I would recommend, is maybe bring it up to the moderators next time you see something like that. 2) The only problem is, that most people enjoy things that are creative, or funny. 3) I agree with both sides of this argument. The first time a
print(eval(input()))was posted, it was a cool thing! When people repeatedly attempt to gather cycles from the same thing, it definetely gets annoying though. 4) Just remember, that if you make something that others would find funny or creative, it would probably amount to more cycles 5) Being able to create something complicated doesn't mean anything (and therefore recieves less cycles), if nobody likes it, right? People upvote things if they like them, not if the code is complicated.
Sorry I'm a little late to this debate, but this is a recurring issue, and I thought I would express my opinion.
print(eval(input()))was never cool in the first place and is only funny to people who have a really really bad sense of humor. If people only like terminal games and sarcastic titles, why do anything else? And why do people think sarcastic titles are so funny? I can
say I made an xbox emulator or something with a content of
Cha-Chingand people would think it is funny
Yes! Exactly! Why don't you make a xbox thing? If we you make something that people will find entertaining, people will upvote it.@CSharpIsGud In addition, everybody finds different ideas of what is funny. If you don't like
print(eval(input())), it doesn't mean you can control whether other people decide to upvote it. If you find that people only like terminal games and sarcastic titles, why don't you create some? If you decide not too, that's fine, but don't expect people to like things that you already know they won't like.
So if you don't want to create projects that get hundreds of upvotes, how else are you planning to get hundreds of upvotes. If you're happy with getting a few upvotes on a complicated project, then keep doing what you are currentley doing. If you want to get hunreds of upvotes, then maybe change your strategy.@CSharpIsGud
I accidentally delted everything I was typing, but whatever. The point is, you have no valid points other than "HAHA Look its a wall" isn't funny, so I'm not going to respond to anything else, unless you bring up a valid point, or decide to change your opinion. Thank you, and goodbye!
PS: If you have anything to add
No, people don't think that anything is funny, it depends on their personality that they think something is funny or not. You think that it isn't funny doesn't mean that other people don't think its funny either. People have different senses of humor, and just because someone has a different feeling you can't say that they have a bad sense of humor@CSharpIsGud
