Random between 3 and 3
MrPerson01 (130)

this repl picks a number between 3 and 3. It is very random and I bet you cannot guess what it will output each time!

i will never understand why low effort post get more cycles than post with actual effort put into it
especially something as unfunny and unoriginal as this...

AtriDey (28)

@MrMinimax I upvoted this just to spite doggo.

rediar (208)

@CoolestDoggo ??? This is actually really really useful!

MrMinimax (86)

I know. I tell my friends that if it 3, you give me $10, and if it is anything else, i give you $10. I'm really lucky :[email protected]

hg0428 (71)

I get 4-12 upvotes for my stuff I put weeks of effort into. This person gets 40 upvotes for the easiest line of code in [email protected]

@MrMinimax
I'd hate to see this website turned into a pile of memes.
If you want to see what real meanness looks like, try making a post like this on stackoverflow.

indominus123 (22)

@CoolestDoggo Thats a jerk move
its just funny

Zexogon (592)

@MrMinimax this is not worth all the cycles it gets a ton of people make amazing projects that can be swept under the rug by unoriginal unfunny things like this you should not be supporting this because the more it gets cycled the more people are gonna make it

CodeABC123 (78)

Yeah. Isn’t that weird? @hg0428

spotandjake100 (11)

@CoolestDoggo you do not need to like it cause it is cool it is funny there is a big difference you may not find it funny but other people might

rediar (208)

@CodeABC123 how is it funny? well it just is. @Zexogon I understand your anger but its fine, its not like this isn't the first time this has happened. We all need a laugh sometimes so frick off

TaylorLiang (615)

@rediar sir, you are under arrest for saying "frick".

TaylorLiang (615)

@rediar also, I had to go through like 7 empty. This is just like empty. I understand your point, its just that as a person that joined repl around 4 years ago, this kind of content is just kinda boring

CodeABC123 (78)

That isn’t a reason. @rediar

CoolestDoggo (71)

@TaylorLiang ive only been here for a little bit but ive already seen about 5 of these type of post. i browse a couple forums pretty often and it gets really annoying to see these things really quick.

in my opinion though stuff like this should be removed. it adds nothing of value to the site, and more people will start doing it because it gets alot of attention.

rediar (208)

@CoolestDoggo @CodeABC123 @TaylorLiang Well are you willing to censor people because you dont think their content is good?

CoolestDoggo (71)

@rediar no, but I am willing to get rid of content that clearly had no effort put into it or is clearly a troll such as this

TaylorLiang (615)

@rediar thats not the point. It doesnt matter if there content is good or not, it just needs to show effort that has been put into it.

CodeABC123 (78)

It isn’t like that. You can get reported sometimes from this. And the content is not bad, but think about it. If the repl.it talk forum was full of these posts, it’s going to be useless. @rediar

CodeABC123 (78)

@rediar @TaylorLiang You both are under arrest for saying you-know-what.

CSharpIsGud (147)

@NekoGod its not hating when its true

CSharpIsGud (147)

@spotandjake100 its not cool OR funny either its just annoying

CSharpIsGud (147)

@rediar Its not good, its literally the equivalent of an empty repl, its not actually sharing anything and its not funny to read print('3') in the first place

MrMinimax (86)

Yeah it deos not seserve 100 cycles lel. Just that guy was being mean about it. The post should be dead by now . This is just empty 8 basically. (I think we are on 8 now...)
@Zexogon

spotandjake100 (11)

@CSharpIsGud a little but i mean some one thinks it is funny so

Tricksyz (28)

I always get it wrong! What is the secret to picking the right number?

[deleted]

why is there so much hate like sure it clearly doesnt have much work put into but its funny

Zexogon (592)

@thecrabempire because there are amazing projects out there that get no attention because everyone is focused on the “haha one line” program

hg0428 (71)

All this does is print(3) and you got 14 upvotes! I make really good stuff and get 4-12 upvotes!

MrPerson01 (130)

@hg0428 I think that people should upvote serious stuff, not this kind of thing

hg0428 (71)

This person is just getting upvotes for making the eaiest line of code in [email protected]

CoolestDoggo (71)

@MrPerson01 you say this yet your the one who decided to post it
you definitely didnt post it because you thought it wouldnt get attention

Lamby777 (55)

@hg0428 Nobody cares. It's just a joke. I get like 0 upvotes as well. This post is funny, and nobody cares what you think.

[deleted]

@CoolestDoggo maybe it was just as a joke between friends stop assuming they shared it to get likes

CoolestDoggo (71)

@thecrabempire yeah bro your so right, that's totally the reason he posted it publically bro

[deleted]

@CoolestDoggo just stop being a salty asshole

rediar (208)

@CoolestDoggo dude it was a joke stop hating on this poor guy

CSharpIsGud (147)

@Lamby777 Again, empty repls aren't funny they bloat repl talk with pointless posts and all the good projects usually get pushed to the bottom because people think something is funny that is anything but

People: Program Everything and pour their hearts out in Repl.it
No one: Let's make a program that displays the number 3

theultimateone (4)

"Cannot guess output", eh? I guess that you will see 3 when you run this

[deleted]

@theultimateone holy shit lucky guess

Kai_Justice (99)

@theultimateone Amazing, you must be a pro guesser!

rediar (208)

Wow this is so hard! This is one of the best games ever since Empty. I have recommended you to the royal family of Sweden, expect your Nobel Prize for Science soon! Good job on the first truly random number generator

PH1 (160)

This is so difficult to guess. I don't get how you got it to be so random. I didn't get a single guess right in 2 hours

RohilPatel (351)

Same here...... wait what's the answer? @PH1

AtticusKuhn (165)

I think this post should be closed for cycle-farming

rediar (208)

@AtticusKuhn not farming people think its funny ok?

Vandesm14 (2010)

@rediar It's not funny if a simple line of code gets 100+ votes while real projects that took work only get 10+ since most of the attention is on these annoying posts which get trending from all the activity.

CSharpIsGud (147)

@Vandesm14 Truer words have never been spoken. There are so many posts of this type, now there are 2 instances of python3 interpreter which are just eval(input()) one has 31 upvotes(IN LESS THAN A DAY) the other has 9. "Haha I made a one line program and a sarcastic title im so funny"

I actually made a real working lua interpreter with everything from math to variables to functions and it got 12 upvotes in a month

Vandesm14 (2010)

@CSharpIsGud Yeah, something's wrong with the community.

CSharpIsGud (147)

@Vandesm14 I would totally write an actual python interpreter, but its not worth the effort because I can practically guarantee you that it wouldn't get as much upvotes as an effortless print(eval(input())) even if I named it the same, it wouldn't be "funny" anymore if it actually took hours of effort to create

Zexogon (592)

Amazing projects like @Altarias rpg game are just swept to the side while this stuff makes trending it really makes me upset (btw I don’t hate @MrPerson01 its not his fault)

[deleted]

@Zexogon you do know its the community who likes them right its not that it is randomly liked by bots

Zexogon (592)

@thecrabempire I’m aware but the fact that so many people are amused by this is kind of disappointing, isn’t It?
We already have so many of these and when you give them attention your feeding the fire i obviously don’t hate the dude for making it I just hate these posts @MrPerson01 if your reading my comments please keep making things I would love to see some sort of Python
program even if it’s a simple calculator like the one I made in lua I really do appreciate everyone on this site (I’m aware I’m getting kinda worked up by this it’s just that there are so many good posts I think should have made trending that never got it)

[deleted]

@Zexogon i agree the posts are lazy but there are no other sites to post jokes like this at least not that i know of they should maybe make sections for short programs or joke programs

Altarias (37)

@Zexogon I am not here to be famous, I am here to have fun. And to share and evolve. I don't care about some spot on some leaderboard, I just wanna do what I like.

Edit: Also, comedy.

TaylorLiang (615)

F he deleted his account

rediar (208)

@Zexogon its funny. get over it. yes other people have better projects, and yes they should get shouted out. But dont criticize this

Zexogon (592)

@Zavexeon @MrEconomical i feel that programs like these should not appear on the home page or should exist at all, all those who make amazing projects are being swept under the rug by people who make lazy posts like this it was funny the first few times but I see this everywhere now and I feel like it sends a message that this is the easiest way to get cycles, is there a way to have these posts limited or removed from the trending page?

Zavexeon (890)

@Zexogon Why'd you ping Mr. Economical? I can't remove them from the trending page unless I lock or delete them.

Zexogon (592)

@Zavexeon He usually has good insight on things

buffhorse (10)

this is bad, doesn't even pick a random number between 3 and 3.
if you look at the source it just prints 3, OP has manipulated us all

BinaryBreaker (17)

import random print(random.randint(3,3))
do i get 87 upvotes now

Zexogon (592)

This needs to stop

CodeABC123 (78)

Yes. There should be more spam filter bot [email protected]

mamamia5x (67)

Repl.it is dying.

Vandesm14 (2010)

@mamamia5x Yeah. It's sad. I remember the days of the OG repl talk: "ibuiltthis". Now, repl talk is just "I think im funny because I took an idea and copied it". I used to see awesome trends of people making programs and upping each other, competing for upvotes. Now, it's just the same idea of jokes which somehow get more attention. I hope repl talk gets back into the phase of trending projects and people taking the ideas and making them better. That is how people get inspired. They take an idea and improve on it. Innovation

AJtheLuaGuy (2)

let me guess. it outputs three. (quiet laughing) (kinda annoying laughing) (REALLY LOUD EARDRUM DESTROYING LAUGHING)

Zanneth (1)

WOAH, I thought it would output 4 but I guess I was wrong.

spotandjake100 (11)

i upovoted for funny

Lamby777 (55)

console.log("3"); gang rise up

ChungusFam (9)

This is hilarious. Keep up these good things.

this is so funny and original LOL!
