"felicific" - producing or tending to produce happiness

I learned a new word today :)

"Astonishingly, it has become one of the most-upvoted submissions of all time to Hacker News."

3 of the top 5 "most-upvoted submissions of all time" are from the last three days:


It looks like there's been some significant growth in the number of voting users recently. If you check the top 10, nine of them are from the last month.

[Edit: this post was killed off of the front page. I wonder why.]

That's interesting. I knew that the number of users was growing, but that the top three are from the past 3 days means that it's a lot more significant than I figured.

Also, until an hour or so ago, Silk was "number one" -- and I know for a fact that there is at least one other submission that's over 600 points that is not showing up on that list, because it was showing up earlier.

There may be a bug in the way that the over page gathers stories from the database.

That list of the most upvotes is missing many, many posts.

There are plenty of high voted posts that are not on there.

I was going to say it's only the past 30 days but I see one from 500+ days ago so I dunno what the algorithm is. Maybe it's based on last comment date.

I will be honest, I saw the title when it first got posted and skipped it. Yawn, another project. When I checked the next day and it was still on the front page, I had to see why. It was definitely worth it. Great job!
