I'm not a lawyer, but I get the impression you're having a bad time with replies that sure aren't helping your disposition, so perhaps I can try?
Getting on Real Time is obvious by just picking up everyone who starts a thread in Chronological order. The New Picks is strictly a matter of math on
Flags, as near as I have seen on my own threads. Recent posting, obviously. but flags are the kick to that list. I've watched mine rise and fall by 1
flag difference in changing positions on the list, is how I am sure on it. (Of course, having said sure, someone from staff will now explain that I
missed a variable..lol)
New-Hot is a bit more mysterious for me as I haven't been able to determine as well what is making mine go up or down. Is it just replies? Replies
with stars or is it one or both along with flags as another factor? That one, I wouldn't mind hearing from staff to clarify myself.
The bottom line tho is...if a topic isn't popular, it's not getting on anything but Real Time until it rolls off by activity.
Don't feel so dejected by only a few threads. Click my name and look at my profile for my threads. Sure... I have some really BIG successes in there.
For every 1 thread I get 10+ flags on though? I probably have 5-10 that got 1 or 2 ..and some with 0. For every thread I got 25+ on, I have dozens and
dozens with that didn't come close. Its all a crap shoot to what people want to read about that day and in what way.
