I've just updated the scoring and ranking of posts to also consider the subsequent comments.
I did this to reward and give incentive to posts which generate comments (which also receive votes). The idea here is to also make those comments more visible to readers. Posts themselves are not necessarily the only content on ZapRead, but the discussion is also a form of content. I want to make that discussion more up-front and visible. So even if a post doesn't score relatively well, if it generates good discussion then it will be placed higher up in the reading order.
Tell me what you think in the comments below.
