View Diary: So, about this "rec list" thingy... (84 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  I have watched the reclist closely (6+ / 0-)

    for a few months, and I have noted that usually a diary at the bottom with 1-3 recs will either progress quickly up the ladder, or soon drop off. It's as if the algorithm offers extra exposure to a new diary that quickly gains a few recs, but if the stream of recommends doesn't continue at the same pace, it drops off.  At some point, though, comments seem to matter, as I've seen even one comment cause a diary to jump a rung or two.
