|It seems that much less votes are needed to get a high position on the front page. I see stories with 5 points reaching nearly the same position as one with 600+ points. Which would be fine actually, if the 600pts are accumulated over two days and the 5 points within 10 minutes, but the 5 points story is an hour old already.|
So what I'm asking/suggesting really is:
1. Has the algorithm been tweaked or changed so that a story makes it to the homepage more quickly, or does it just seem like that?
2. Can it be changed so that a story needs more upvotes before appearing on the homepage? I think this improves the quality of homepage stories.
