Just curious what the formula is that causes the thumbs up numbers to drop (I figure it's a factor of time). For those that think I'm crazy, I noticed that the number of thumbs that disctate where something falls on the front page in the various lists, drops after a few days. Just curious as to what causes it. TIA

ok, I will fix this... it's too confusing

Basically, the number of thumbs is the same (behind the scenes), but the counter for the front page ages them off over time so we get some movement on the lists.

No need to change it - I figured that was the case...and oddly enough it makes sense, but I just wasn't sure what the "length of a thumb" was

I'm not sure either, but if you're a king, then the "width of a thumb" is 1".

It is also possible to remove your thumb from something, which would cause thumb #s to drop if enough people did it, but I'm guessing its quite rare...
