It has been awhile sense I have participated in the AP world. I was just curious on how often things get rotated on/off the front page these days? It seems there are a few things there that have been sitting there for a month+
Also, does the AP still have weekly awards? I haven't messed around here since before the latest redesign. So.. yeah. I'm trying to get back into things. Thanks Lounge buddies....
they have charts now.. you get on the weekly most popular that frontpages you on the audio page for a week.. and then you can strive for best of the month, and then best of the year.. and then best of all time.
It seems to be a combination of views and score.. so if 8 people have the highest views for most popular of the week it will then rank them in order of score. Downloads don't seem to factor into it.
I like how views factor in though as it prevents people just upfiving their own work to get on it as it only counts you as one visitor.. so you actually have to HAVE fans to get popular hehe..
still I imagine that must be hard for new users but eh... something for them to strive for.. I've noticed that even in my long absence I still managed to pepper some of those charts which makes me confident that if I even Do choose to leave, or die heaven forbid.. that my stuff may stay there for a while.. in the end we all just wanna be heard, and we all just wanna be remembered - that's why we do it after all :)
