If you are landing on the home page of this site, you will be viewing the TOP CURRENT "page". These are the items that are getting the most views, comments, votes, etc. As you should know by now, certain items will NEVER appear on the TOP CURRENT and those items include anything tagged FREE or SEXY (no matter how many votes they get). By the way, the Outback deal is on the TOP CURRENT page

Ah, it wasn't when I made my post, it must have gitten moved there in the meatime. But it still doesn't explain why the 2 vote deals on the Top tab are there instead of the dozen others on the Fresh tab. Did those 2 vote deals get a lot more views than the other 2 vote deals? It seems like if a lot of people are viewing them but not upvoting them, then they probably aren't all that great. I don't have any deals posted right now, this isn't a personal gripe. It has just always seemed kind of random what ends up on the Top page.

@moondrake: I think it depends more on views than it does votes. Like a views/minute ratio. Questions are the same.

Also, the timing of the votes matters (I think). If those two-vote deals got the two votes right away, that plays a role as well in whether they're on the top deals page.

@moondrake: Haven't you read the FAQ's?

If there were official FAQ's it would help. Very good question BTW, and worthy of more upvotes than a lot of them lately. :)

@jsimsace: ROFLOL. I have only a vague understanding of how this whole interweb thing works. Istill think this cloud thing is some kind of geek fairy tale, "...and that's where data go when they die". I am not sure an FAQ would help me much. :)
