Front Page Downloads

I find it interesting that it seems to always be the most massively popular downloads on the front page. It’s nice and everything if you miss them the first time for some strange reason, but when they’re up there for weeks, it seems to defeat the whole point of spotlighting “recently popular” files. I think that the algorithm for sorting front page files should be re-vamped so we get more variety. Hell, even random sorting would be a nice change.

That’s my 2 cents, folks. Take it or leave it.

I’d actually prefer the random sorting…I’m sure every now and then someone will stumble on something that strikes their fancy. Even if it’s not popular, it might be just what they’re looking for.

I liked the old sorting better, with popular downloads and recently added.

But as with every nice thing it got abused (people having arguments through it, spamming, etc.).

If it exists, man will argue about it.

It would be nice to have it bring up a few recently added files, and if something is up for more than 2 days it gets replaced by something else.
