So I've had a few stories voted pretty popular at this point. I'm not complaining, or greedy for more fame or anything (okay, maybe just a little if a gal's gotta be honest) but I am curious about how our system works here. I have stories with very few votes or views that are listed as being much more popular than stories which have *more* views *more* votes and a score that is only less then .01 or .02. Is it supposed to work that way? It just seems sort of odd that a story with 1 vote, 1 view and has a 5 is considered more popular than a 4.9 with a thousand views and votes. Just saying...

Thread moved to site feedback.

When you click on the most popular tab, those stories are ranked via the most logical method, the highest average score. To make sure a story doesn't rank at the top with just one "5" vote, we put in the rider that the story has to have over a certain number of votes before it is included in the calculations.

Does that make sense?

I don't see the volume of votes being a more important factor in the weighting. If a story has 60 votes and averages 4.7, and another has 30 votes and averages 4.8, then of course the second one should be listed higher.
