Is it normal to get mostly 3-5star reviews and then suddenly get bombed with 1's by other chans in order to stay on top themselves?

I think thats what happened since I went from average four to average two within five minutes.

Yes it's normal. It's obvious that the top list is tricked, owners of the chans in the top are giving bad reviews to the rest to keep their chans high.

But this will not change, because Topchan administrator is very happy with the increase of visitors since the list runs by reviews. This way chan admins have to enter topchan again and again to review chans all the time to get some exposure =)

Well that's not good.
I'll try keeping myself moderately high somehow to avoid mass downrates.

I was at top for a day, then suddenly I went straight to bottom with no reviews that were serious.
I guess it's important for some chans that has low interest and few returning members. Good thing most of my members come to stay for a while.

I don't mean ALL the top chans are making bad reviews or cheating.
But it's a fact that now the chans are not listed by their quality, they are listed by the amount of reviews the chan admins make. The more reviews you make, (good for your chan, bad for the rest), the better. Quality of your chan doesn't matter.

Have you retards considered that your shitty sites aren't getting ranked up because you're: a) running filthy child porn sites; b) you're running a shitty site that gets 5 views a day; c) the top sites on the list have had a decade of history, have real users, have no spam or illegal files, and aren't full of bots (the users are real, and there are tons of them)?

So did I.

I mean, how the fuck does 9000chan stay on top?
Proxy voting.
It has no members, 20+ shitty boards and the admin talks to himself.
How does a fairly good chan stay on bottom?
Getting bombed by the ones proxying themself up.

This discussion is meaningless since this listing method has raised up drastically Topchan number of visitors to keep their chans up.

Just unfair, but that's the way it is, Topchan is free to use so if we don't like it it's better to leave, lol

The world is unfair, and that's how it stays I guess.

It's not possible to make everyone happy, but the rating points based ranking has been a huge success. Not just because it is bringing in more traffic (187,222 Alexa Rank!).

Instead of a race to see who can get the most hits on a button, this ratings based ranking gives that power to the community. While a chan owner could proxy up, and give himself a 5 and others a 0, he/she would have to do that several times a day, with several proxy's, to every chan, and solve a captcha, everyday. Seems like a full time job.

The proxy thing will be short lived. I will soon integrate the SpammerSlapper into the reviews system with the anti-proxy option turned on. Hopefully that will make a few more people happy. In addition to that, I do plan on factoring "in" hits into the ranking formula, and maybe have the button hits have a small weight on the equation.

In the end, the increased traffic is beneficial to everyone as a whole. A higher Alexa rank contributes to higher search rank, and that means even more visitors to TopChan. That extra traffic eventually makes it to each chan listed.
