Recent ≠ PopularFeb. 8, 2015
I've noticed that the Popular tab here weighs recency REALLY high. I think it's a little too high. At the moment there are a lot of posts on the second page (the page where posts go to die! ;-) ) that have 5 or 6 times the amount of votes as more recent posts.
Overall, the popular tab is where I spend 95% of all my time on this site, and I LOVE that tab. It's always really high quality stuff. But I wonder if it might be time to update the popular logic. Just a thought. Love what you all are doing here.
