I go to a site and see how other people rated them and how many watched them, then I pick the one based on that. When I first got into Linux, I didn't try all the distros before deciding which one is the best, I went to distrowatch and saw what the 5 most popular ones are, and picked one out of those. The same applies for so many other things in life.

Sure, it's true that the most viewed ROM/Movie/whatever might not be the best for you, but why is it bad telling people what ROM has the most views?
nothing wrong at all......just that this isn't the place to do it.....especially in a thread created by moderators telling you not to do it!

Also, you can go to the dev thread and see how many views/ dl's a Rom has.

Spoon feeding isn't part of the agenda unfortunately

Unlike the examples you have given above..XDA-DEVELOPERS.com is neither a movie nor a Linux Distro released to the general public for consumption..the ROMs posted here are not for public consumption..they are meant for people who know and understand the basic functioning of the Software.....

That is why you don't have a "ROM Watch" to tell you which ROM is the best..

Regarding telling people which ROM has most views> If the person looking for the ROM is not blind and/or retarded..will surely be able to look at that stat..it is out there for everyone to see..

nd for the nth time..this site is meant of Development...please have a relook at your priorities if you are not here for the same...

I'm not asking anyone to rank the roms, but use your own brain to figure it out. As many many many people here have said, ROM use is dependant on preference.
Stop the fighting and seriously just test it out yourself.
Like it has also been said, this isn't a place for you to just come in and demand things. The purpose of this whole site is to learn, not to be spoonfed.
Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300
Rom: Omega v58
Kernel: Boeffla v5.2
(Current)

--------------------------------------------------
HTC Desire Z NAM (A7275)
Rom: Virtuous 2.0
(Handed down to GF)
--------------------------------------------------
HTC Touch Pro
Rom: NRG
(Retired)
--------------------------------------------------


For those that like to post before you search:
Stop being a noob. Watch and learn.

I think it's best to go ahead and just leave this stickied and closed. For now, it will remain how it is. That is NO best rom/kernel threads. They will all get closed for, as they always turn out just like this one is now. You see?

Have a good one.
