I'm guessing that they'll just filter them out by IP. So...
SELECT * FROM SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY IPAddr ORDER BY DateCreated DESC) AS rownum FROM Votes WHERE rownum = 1
If you have access to a proxy server, you can probably abuse that. They probably know they can't count on the players to keep themselves from casting multiple votes, but they also probably aren't going to track every single vote.
I love those comics, they demonstrate why I love Barbara so much. Maybe if they touch up her design people might like her more. I heard a couple of people call her ugly (I don't see it).
Anyway, in the world of Nintendo where 90% of all girls are magical fairy princesses, its nice to have someone like Barbara. She's a greedy bitch with a sadistic sense of humor. She's also a punk rocker which is really cool too.
I'll admit I voted for Barbara the Bat a few days ago, and suggested the idea of attacks using different musical instruments/equipment like guitars, drums, mikes, speakers, and possibly playing card attacks inspired by Master of Illusion. And also brought the idea that it could bring more attention to the Jam With The Band franchise if she got in.
Still wondering if I should vote again . . .
(I'm surprised that there isn't a form for voting in Assist Trophies)

I started an appeal and petition for the character Starfy.
Through this medium; we can educate other people about what makes him unique, spread his support and encourage a few people into voting. Contrary to some belief, he is not a 'weak' character with limited options for moves. His adventures throughout his five games support the idea that is far from the case.
I stress that I only intend to encourage votes from the official ballot. I do not want people messaging Masahiro Sakurai on Twitter or anything like that.

Please be gentle with me if I go off on a tangent and am not understanding something. Capricious.
1. Mother/Earthbound is at least fifty times more of a franchise than Band Bros., and you'd have to be in pretty heavy denial to think otherwise. Do heavy merchandise and a rabid legacy suddenly not count?
2. Why the quotes? Is Itoi's word suddenly meaningless?
3. What the hell does being finished have to do with anything? They could produce ten more Band Bros. games and it won't amount to jack if it never reaches the acclaim that Earthbound has. There's more to being considered a "franchise" than simply existing.
1. Fan art isn't official art.
2. I guess I'm just not a fan of chicks who wear super heavy make-up. Or carry a really narcissistic attitude.

Daigasso DX sold more copies than franchise golden boy Earthbound, even accounting only for Japanese sales, which isn't even necessary since both are the ones which saw global release. Or do actual sales suddenly not count?

That's literally all there is to being a media franchise: A media franchise is a collection of related media. Daigasso is a collection of three related games, which are the media, so yes, it's a media franchise. Know what else is a media franchise? Big Mutha Truckers. Absolute garbage. But it counts.
And how can I "deny reality" if I honestly didn't even know what the reality was?
I didn't know the first Band Bros. sold more than Earthbound, and I thought something wasn't considered a 'franchise' unless it had at least three entries and a bunch of tie-in media! You know, attempts at actual franchising? If Band Bros. really is a bigger 'franchise' than Earthbound, how come I've seen plenty of promotional material and merchandise such as manga and little knick-knacks pertaining to Earthbound but have never seen anything pertaining to Band Bros. besides its three games? If these things exist, I'd more be more than happy to see them.
And that the hell is wrong with my lady preferences? Am I suddenly not allowed to dislike the way a fictional character looks?
And most importantly, why are you getting so personally offended?

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.

nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
