  • Hi Bugsmommy1908,

    Here's how the Popular Post list is made.

    1) Each post has a question on that says "Should this post be popular?". Each member of the site can vote one time for each post -- either 'Yes' or 'No'.
    2) The Popular Post list only looks at posts made in the last 36 hours. If a popular post all of a sudden becomes older than 36 hours it will immediately drop out of the list.
    3) The Popular Post list will be a maximum of 100 posts, but can be less, depending on the next item.
    4) Popular Posts must have a "score" of at least +2. That way if someone votes for their own post it doesn't immediately become popular, at least one other person must vote for it.

    Hope that helps!

  • I think your title makes a HUGE difference too. Generally it has to be catchy. Try to get your friends to read it and vote it popular and that should help start to you off.
