First member to go over 10 vote strength - congrats Tom Harrigan!

Feb. 12, 2016

When we launched this website two and a half years ago (oh my was that so far back?), together with a lot of novelties in the way we follow WordPress news we introduced a unique algorithm that measures member contribution to the site. It is somewhat based on Google's PageRank algo and it awards users that upvote good content and punishes those that upvote spammy stuff.

Tom Harrigan is first and Ryan and Donna are soon going to be in the 10.00 club too. As a reminder, vote strength of 10 means that Tom's vote counts as 10 new account votes. So if a bad article is shared, and a spammer creates nine accounts and upvote it, an article that Tom shares around that same time would still outrank it. Same goes for voting on an another article.


If a WordPress news organization wants a new editor they know where to look :)

Congrats Tom and thanks to all members for making this website a great one!

Hey thanks Vladimir! This was a nice surprise when I popped on the site :) I've enjoyed this community a lot over the last couple of years and it's been fantastic meeting and forming relationships with many of those who are active here. Cheers to another two and a half years (and beyond), and many more joining the 10+ club!

Didn't know this community is two and half years old- too bad, I just found two months ago! Thanks Vladimir, it's been great time to finding bits of WordPress with ease here.

Congrats, Tom!

Y'all awesome! I started WPMetaList last year and then stopped working on it after I discovered ManageWP.org. After all, there was no need to reinvent the wheel. ManageWP.org has become a vital part of my daily routine. Thank you, Vladimir and team, for making it possible and having the vision for something like this.

I have managed to share 230+ WordPress related articles here and have received 2,000+ upvotes in one year of membership. It's amazing, intuitive and makes me feel more connected with all of you.

It's about time the top 10 contributors should get a ManageWP.org Tshirt :P

Looking forward to one :P
BTW any updates on the new design?

Well basically, we cant find anyone to code it. This is why we started thinking about open sourcing managewp.org

Hey Vladimir, open sourcing the code-base would be really great- specially the ranking algo- I find it very interesting!

If you want, I would love to help getting it renovated!

But that would make the ranking algo public. Or maybe you could leave that part out.

Reply
Vladimir Prelovac

There is very little risk in exposing the algo, as you still need to do what the algo expects, that is to submit and vote great articles.
