He averaged the place people ranked every pony, and the best pony would be the one with the best average place.
Game interesting Results.

Spoiler:
 

OK here is the quiz it used.

YOUR PRINCESS REQUESTS THAT ALL POSTS OF THE RESULTS TO THE QUIZ BE SPOILERS SO THAT THE POST OVERALL IS NOT CLUTTERED WITH WALLS OF TEXT.

If I'm reading that right, the sample size = 28 people
I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is not a very good study.
There is absolutely no reason why Rarity and Sweetie Belle would be the top 2 (consider this: Rarity is awful)

Bah, reddit, why must you always upload text as giant images.

Yeah I don't know what the sample size is or if this is representative at all, but Sweetie Belle did tie for first with Celestia on mine so i say:

PERFECTLY ACCURATE.

I missed the sample size, but that's reddit for you.

I would be curious to the results if this survey was done by a larger sample.

Spoiler:
 

If everyone does that quiz and posts the results here I will try and do the calculations for our club. would be interesting in my opinion anyways.

As I recall, this year's brony census had a "favorite pony" type deal with all of the characters in a non-ordered ambiguous ranking system. That'll be a lot better, as it rated each character individually as opposed to relative to each other.

Yeah, it will be better overall, but I though the idea of how the survey was being done on Reddit was interesting because it didn't go by who was the most commonly said to be the best pony, but instead who was the highest on every single list. It shows who is overall mot liked among the ponies rather than best pony.

Results when i did the quiz.
Spoiler:
 
This quiz does some have some short cuts in it because some antagonists I really dislike are higher than ponies I am neutral towards.
If everyone does that quiz and posts the results here I will try and do the calculations for our club. would be interesting in my opinion anyways.

Yeah, depending on how you vote in the first like 30 questions it will really mess up the order, I took it twice to sort that out for mine.

I enjoy Vinyl as a character, but it is kind of hard to separate her from Octavia.

Oh hey, an episode variant of the ranking page.

Spoiler:
 

Granted some of the lower rankings seem a bit weird. I'm pretty sure I did not intentionally rank Wonderbolt Academy below Dragon Quest and Spike at Your Service. confused
