I'm making a music recommendation site and on the front page I'd like to show the latest 10 albums based on activity. Instead of just sorting by votes Id like a more accurate approach to what gets on the front page (like digg). I'd like some recommendations on how to approach creating this system, specificly: -the difficulty of implementing this system (new to ruby) - easier ways of approaching this Current concept: Conditions would be based on the most active items sorted by value, limit 10. Value is determined by: +/- Votes (+50 value) + Comments (+10 value) + Page Views (+1 value) - Red Flag Button (-100 value) Activity is determined by: Amount of increases / decreases in value in the last 24 hours *Since the value is weighted would activity have to be also?
