hrm. Maybe im misunderstanding this, but im a little iffy on it also.
i think that the 'Popularity score' of each app, as voted by registered users should remain unchanged,
to me, this is like what the community likes and feels is worth having,
plus, itd be annoying if you have to like revote for your favorite apps to keep the score up.
now as for the 'Popular titles' list on the site, im All for that changing based on like monthly activity,
(though, i like numbers, so i wouldnt mind a 'weekly' and 'yearly' list either,
i think where im getting confused, or have been confused is this:

Sooo. Why do we vote for apps again? O_o
i mean, i know it can add them to our fav apps list, but i though the whole voting bit was to publicly show how much we as a community liked each app? O_o
i can see changing the 'Popular titles' list to track like clicks on the 'Website - Screenshot - Download - Comments - Post comment - Permalink' links to track how popular something is, (though i must say whatever you do, apps might get a slight boost from just being on the front page,
But. Yeeeah. I think im confused here. ^-^;
...im also rather Ticked Off at HP right now, so that might be playing into it, But im posting anyways,
Disclaimer: I honestly dont vote for stuff, as im sure Andy can tell,
i mean theres stuff i like, alot, and use, but its just not my thing, unless i somehow feel its important, ^-^;;
So im just posting this in the interest of figuring out how this all works...
