Games do not gain popularity


2015-05-26

Something appears to be wrong with the popularity ratings. None of the games that were added in the last nine days have a single popularity point.

confirmed here, these games are not shoing popularity

Isn't that just measure of traffic to their entries? I don't think addition of games gets advertised anywhere, so nothing directs to them, not even spiders get to them fast because there's no page for newly added games.

Yes, it is. But I've been watching the popularity in the past, since I'm curious at what rate the popularity of a new game increases and what makes a game popular. So from experience I can tell that almost all games will have at least one popularity point after one or two days. Possibly because the editors review each other's entries.

I disabled that data in the new layout page, sorry.
For transparency, editors views do not update the popularity rank, and hitting F5 multiple times doesn't boost it.
Thanks for noticing these details too, it's quite appreciated. :)
