Time to review user ratings? (Internet Talk)

Five of the top ten sifters have not posted a video in years, some as long as 7+ years.
Is it time to revisit how users are rated, perhaps by vote count over the last year or some other measure? With traffic so low lately, it's impossible to ever come near the vote counts of our top 10, no matter how many videos are submitted. No video is going to get 100+ votes anymore, today a 15 vote video usually hits #1. That makes rating users by overall vote count a poor metric, and leaves the top user list full of long inactive users.

Is it time to change the rating system, or is the semi-broken system we have now one we want to keep?

Wrong video in "promoted" slot?

I'm getting a bug where the promoted video title/description don't match the video. Often it's still the last promoted video I watched, but with a newer promoted video's title and description. Am I the only one? I started noticing it a week or two ago. Refresh always fixes it.

Who do you blame for the election results?

A total of 17 votes have been cast on this poll.


The blame cannons are firing wildly. Where would you aim them....if anywhere?

New Motorsports Channel

I just created a new motorsports channel. This is for any motorized competitions, or exhibition displays of skill, speed, or power, on land, in or under water, and in the air, even when not in actual competition.
