Looks like we've got some crossed wires (possibly an autoblock/reciprocal block, those appear to be rather significant in this thread) so I am going to sync up the numbers first, then put my numbers in.

Based off the listed votes from post #445 and #446 but the seed values listed in #444 (which all appear to be consistent with the preceding several posts)
Original Dungeons and Dragons 4
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, 1st Edition 61
Basic Dungeons and Dragons 42
B/X Dungeons and Dragons 38

BECMI Dungeons and Dragons 58
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, 2nd Edition 50
Dungeons & Dragons, Rules Cyclopedia Edition 54
Dungeons & Dragons, 3.5 Edition 25
Dungeons & Dragons, 4th Edition 43
Dungeons & Dragons, 5th Edition 49


I believe that is all the numbers in their correct values.
 

Original Dungeons and Dragons 4
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, 1st Edition 61 - 2 = 59
Basic Dungeons and Dragons 42
B/X Dungeons and Dragons 38
BECMI Dungeons and Dragons 58
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, 2nd Edition 50
Dungeons & Dragons, Rules Cyclopedia Edition 54
Dungeons & Dragons, 3.5 Edition 25
Dungeons & Dragons, 4th Edition 43 + 1 = 44
Dungeons & Dragons, 5th Edition 49

I do find the overall pattern very interesting. E.g. 3e got thrown out pretty fast, but I'm not sure how to feel about 3.5e doing poorly but not super badly, since it's still 13 downvotes away from oblivion. There's very clearly a strong contingent that adore BECMI and AD&D 1e, 2e, and RC, since I've downvoted high-ranking ones several times and they remain at high rank. The existence of such a group on this board doesn't surprise me in the least though, nor did the removal of everything PF-related. There's a separate forum for PF content, so it was unlikely that any advocates would participate. 5e appears to be in an unusual position, where it has an almost perfect balance of 2 promoters for every detractor, which is honestly less favorable to it than I expected--indeed, according to the (old, no-longer-used) minimum popularity metrics at WotC as I understand them, that would have been seen as a failure!

Originally I had clicked "Like" on this post because I agree with the assessment. Then I fermented that this is a Positive Only thread, and this post is out of alignment with that notion.

So let's talk about the good things that each edition has to offer, and leave the bad stuff for a different thread.
Oops! I hadn't noticed that this was a + only thread. :oops:

I will "cease and desist" from any further negative comments myself. Apologies to any who took offense to any of my unsanctioned comments about any edition.

I think you've managed to skip backwards in time @TheSword . @Tallifer and @LoganRan you've also got a resurrected couple of editions in there.

Yeah, I just copied the post prior to mine (Tallifer's) but I now see that some editions were actually eliminated but somehow got back into the game in TheSword's post.

Weird.

I will edit my post to try to get things back into sync.

(Edit: I went back to Lanefan's post (#450), made the modifications to reflect TheSword and Tallifer's posts and then made my mods. Hopefully, I didn't screw anything up.)
