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.
✿ Love others, but don't forget to care for the self. 🦋
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?

Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.
