YTMND Front Page Algorithms
This is a work in progress containing algorithms for the content boxes on the front page, while this information could be used to exploit the system, it's not too hard to figure out on your own.
Front Page Algorithms
"Worthwhile YTMNDS": YTMNDs with a score above 4.0 and a number of votes fitting between 4 and 425.
"Up and Coming YTMNDS": YTMNDs created within the last 48 hours that have a score above 3.0 and a number of votes fitting between 3 and 300.
Some users has expressed disdain at the fact that once a site reaches 300 votes its removed from the Up and coming list.
