It's Monday, which means I need to do an update on TechTalkBlogs, as it moves into it's fifth week since launch

System Summary

3 new blogs were added during the week:

I'm a bit disappointed to see the number of net new votes go down for the week - have the posts not been vote worthy??

I've adjusted the scoring system this week, which this week is featuring prime numbers:

  • 19 points for the initial post
  • 43 points per vote
  • 3 points deducted per hour

It's pretty aggressive - keeps stories on the front page for a few hours and allows stories with votes to hang around for a few days (if people bother to vote).
