What promotes a deal to Popular and then to front page?
I am just curious what causes a deal to be promoted (from Hot Deals to Popular to FP)? I see Hot Deals that have 2-3 times the TU and 2-3 times the views as some of the Popular deals, but they aren't promoted to popular. I've even seen FP deals go FP with less than 10 TU, a couple hundred views, and no replies. Or something that was FP come back and it immediately goes FP with a link to the old FP deal, while others don't get that same love. To me it seems obvious SD plays favorite to NewEgg, Amazon, and maybe even walmart (they pay good commission I guess and I have no problem with that!), but when I am not actively watching the site I just scan the FP every now and then. It makes me wonder what kind of deals are being neglected.
Just wondering if any tips or thoughts can be shared or if that would violate a secret deal advancement formula SD has. Thanks in advance.
