I love what you are doing. But have others noticed that some of the items on the front page are up to 4 days old? I wonder why that is

Also im curious what the first subreddit is going to be since i heard the first one will be launching soon and am wondering if there is a better word for it than subreddit

If the community really likes a post, it sits on the frontpage longer, i.e. votes increase ranking slightly non-linearly: # votes^1.2/elapsed time^1.3

For now, while the community is small, this appears to be a good thing: discussions can build around popular topics/announcements/amas.
