      (yes, b/c those are the kinds of diaries I like [grin] the marginally popular ones) ~

      It has to do with how many recs it gets in how short a time.  Then there's five minutes with no recs -- drops off.  I mean, I'm making up the five minute part, but that's reasonably accurate.  I've seen diaries go from recent to rec to recent and back to rec over the course of maybe half an hour.

        the question.  My own experience has been that every time I've written a diary that has shown up in the rec list, I've never seen it disappeared.  Yes, sometimes it quickly goes to the 2nd or 3rd  page of the rec list, and then it moves back and forth, but not completely gone.

        Either way, I understand it all better now.  Thanks to everyone.

        •  It is way more common than you might think. (4+ / 0-)

          It is referred to in some spheres as "blipping" the Rec List, and it can be very frustrating.

          Twice I have seen Diaries on the Rec List with as few as THREE (count 'em) Recommends.

          It doesn't happen often with numbers that low, but if you post at a quiet time, and half a dozen people like your Diary, it can hit the Rec List then disappear very quickly.

          Equally I have seen many Diaries with over 30 recommends not make that list, indeed, I have quite a few myself :)

          I think I have one with over 100 recommends, and no Recommended tag ... heh!

          Lady Rec List can be capricious at times.

          I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
          but I fear we will remain Democrats.
