A few of the posts on the “I dont recommend this option” thread brought up the issue of changing the order of the options as newer ones get released and older options become obsolete. Before we get into how to practically go about implementing such a feature, lets agree on what behavior we would like to see. To kick things off here are some characteristics I would like to see:
- Recently released or added options can climb the rankings without having to acquire more absolute votes than older options.
- More obscure but awesome options can compete with the popular ones.
- The rankings are resilient to groups attempting to astroturf the question.
- Experts can have their opinions heard.
What would you all like to see?
