    Is there any thought of changing that?

    •  changes come (5+ / 0-)

      generally from group discussions and while this has been discussed, given the new formula for the rec list that does mean some diaries can make the list quickly then drop back off, the fact that something does make the rec list on its own generally means (or has in the past at least meant) that the diary has the ability to get the requisite number of eyeballs under its own steam.  Since DR was originally about helping those overlooked diaries get attention they might deserve because of good writing, giving limited space to diaries that have already demonstrated the ability to get what cs offers without cs help would kind of defeat the purpose.  Plus it would entail yet another layer of personal judgments to be hashed out when the rule in this case is very clear cut.

      So at this point, though several folks agree with you that at times this particular rule has unfortunate consequences, the likelihood of changing it isn't great at the moment.  That would bring even more complicated and unfortunate consequences than we are presented with now in the fewer occasions when a deserving diary might have to be eliminated because of this condition.

      So, thoughts are always there, and discussions are also always ongoing, but as of now the reasons for changing it aren't more compelling than the reasons not to.  That said, CS remains both diligent about maintaining its mission as impartially and fairly as possible and about remaining flexible to the realities of the site.

      How's that for an answer that doesn't say much?  I doubt I have a future in corporate PR.
