Minimize the post:view ratio! (view, but don't post)

Postby Actaeus » Fri Dec 19, 2008 3:44 pm UTC

Basically, don't reply to this post, except to keep the thread on the first page.
That's all there is to it!

EDIT: now at 6000:1 ratio, with 39 posts. We're slipping!

Keeping on first page & claiming responsibility for the extra 400-some views.
EDIT: 500-some views.
EDIT: 1000-some views.
EDIT: 3000-some views.
Here's the applescript bot I wrote. It basically just goes back and forward over and over again to jack up the views.
N.B.: Mac only, unfortunately. ALSO prosilver only.
Steps:
1. Open viewforum.php?f=14 in Safari.
2. Open viewtopic.php?f=14&t=32138 in the same window.
3. Run this code in /Applications/AppleScript/Script Editor:
Code: Select all
repeat
   tell application "Safari"
      activate
      activate
      tell application "System Events"
         keystroke "[" using {command down}
      end tell
      activate
      delay 1
      activate
      tell application "System Events"
         keystroke "]" using {command down}
      end tell
      delay 1
   end tell
end repeat


ALSO: FUCK YOU, Chrismclegless!

Run it in multiple tabs for extra fun! It's gone up since I started running it again today. A lot. Like, 400 views in two minutes.

Oh, and sorry for posting.

EDIT: I just realized I could edit this post without anyone noticing (at least until this thread slips off the first page), so I will use it as my Own Personal Blog Space™! Stay tuned for awesome content based on my Awesome Life ©®.

This thread appears to be succeeding in its goals. Therefore, we may post with abandon for, say, 10k posts or so before we really need to worry.

Or maybe even 100k.
