What goes into hub ranking?
Apr 17 2012, 11:36 am
Just wondering exactly what the formula is that determines the order in which games are shown on the front page/listings. The information would help me attract a wider audience if I can focus on specific aspects of the way the hub is presented.

Someone else was wondering the same thing. No real answers are there though, just guesses

I cannot find where I read about this, and that bugs me, but I am almost positive it goes by how many fans the game has that are BYOND Members.
If that's the case, and I truly believe it is; then I find that a bit odd. I suppose it works, but it may not be the most accurate method. It also makes improving your place in the listing tougher.

That can't be right, because Epic moves up and down on the front page and seems to be moving up more when there are more people visiting the hub/playing the game as opposed to how many fans it gets
It is ahead of Hazordhu 2 which undoubtedly has more member fans

It used to be the number of fans, but it changed with the site update, I think.(the first reply, Tom answered)

It just factors in recency of fans.

Ah, recency. I wouldn't of ever guessed that. Also, thanks Superfetch; I was wondering where the heck I got that from. Pretty sure that was the post I was looking for.
