To falsify the results of that poll in order to perpetuate their argument against sprint actually is self serving bias. Apologies as that wasn't intuitive the way I described it in my previous post so I'll try to explain better. You see, that Reddit user wanted to make people that read that post believe that more people dislike sprint than there actually are. So the self serving bias part comes into to play when they falsify data to try to over-inflate the issue. Because of them they are over-inflating the sprint issue by lying about the results of polls like that. Their intent was "I want to over inflate this issue," when other people read my post and they met that intent by flat out lying about results from that poll. That person couldn't successfully argue against sprint on their own so they tried to make it look like more people were with them in their debate against sprint. Their stance against sprint is therefore based upon a false perception that they're backed by more people than they actually are but in reality it's a just lie.I understand what you mean but that is all under the assumption that those numbers are fake.
you have yet to show me how those poll options are falsifying data, when did he lie about the results of that poll?
In the end, nobody will ever know how many people are against sprint/in favor of sprint because anit-sprintess will allways focus on anti-sprint results and pro-sprinters will allways focus on pro-sprint results, there is no way to gather significant, bias-free results.. 343s "community feedback" is just as biased and manipulative presented as those community made online polls but accusing someone someone of lying just because their results don't fit into your agenda is the worst way of havinf such a discussion...
It's not an accusation when the lie plain as day on that Reddit user's post. They're not quoting the results of that Waypoint poll accurately at all. That's clearly a lie, plain as day. It's got nothing to do with an agenda- it's got nothing to do with how I feel about sprint. That Reddit user is unequivocally and flat out lying in that post. There's nothing bias about the lie itself... Though I've stated that I feel they lied to perpetuate their side of the debate... Meaning the purpose of the lie was to bolster their personal bias about sprint. But strip bias and the debate out of this entirely and that post is still falsifying the results of a poll- pure and simple. That poll is supposedly gone now and can't even be referenced so given this Reddit users skewing of the stats I wouldn't put it past him to have edited that video to make stuff up entirely. But even as it is- that poll was cited after what, day 1 of its inception according to the narrator of the video? And there's all of about 1,000 or so total votes- who knows where it went after day 1 right? Do you? Can anyone post it? Nope, guess not because it's conveniently vanished...
Furthermore that Reddit user intentionally misquoted the question from that poll as,
"Should sprint stay in Halo?"
With the responses conveniently "sub categorized," as you called it... Or made up, more less (because these weren't the responses from that poll):
"No, this mechanic doesn't belong in Halo," or
" Yes, this mechanic belongs in Halo."
The poll on that video did not as that question, nor did it have those responses. The poll in that video asked if sprint and flinch should stay in Halo- at the time flinch was a much-hated addition to the franchise. So if they voted against flinch and sprint they were not just voting against sprint... Flinch was forced into every reply on that poll which was what it was about. The question the Reddit user put in their post was not even what users were asked in that poll. It wasn't an even an exaggeration- it was simply a lie from that Reddit user.
