So the bumon says random when you go to vote for entries, but for some reason, it always seems like higher-scoring submissions pop up first, giving them a significant head start for originality. That is, say it’s Wednesday and I’m doing a big chunk of voting for thread titles all at once. I start on the first page and find five fourteens and a ten or two, and the rest of the pages are mostly near zero or slightly under or over.

It could just be me, but it really looks like the “vote for random submissions” bumon doesn’t work well. Am I crazy?

“Cutty Cutterson”

yeah, it seems like if there’s a large amount of stuff to vote on, some high-voted things will always take up the first three or so votes

“Venereal Biohazard”

I’ve noticed this as well…

It means that anything that’s not submitted on a Monday will have real trouble trying to get as many votes as the half-decent stuff that’s submitted right away.
