Is there such a thing as purgatory for fresh items with too many votes but not enough to go popular?
Some background on my question about deal listings afterlife:
So I listed two deals yesterday, Saving Private Ryan and South Park Season 14. Here are the links even:
As they were listed yesterday and did not get enough votes (mid teens each) to go popular, I thought nothing of it. This afternoon the vote total is rising, 19 for South Park, 22 for Ryan.
Now comes the oddity, I sorted the Fresh tab by most votes and neither deal is to be found, nor are they on the popular tab. The only place I can find these two deals is on my tab.
Now for my question, is this supposed to happen? Is there a purgatory for deals that don't get enough votes to qualify for popular status but have too many votes for the fresh tab?
