Many people have had low quality programs that end up getting onto the first page of the hotlist with TONS of votes. There are others, who have put high amounts of effort into a program, but only manage to get to the 2nd or 3rd page of the hotlist. I understand some of you are very frustrated, and I am too.
The new system, would be simple. I'm thinking that low effort programs, no matter how many votes they have, will be blocked from the hotlist, but better programs, even ones with barely any votes, will be allowed onto the hotlist.
This way, the hotlist would no longer be clogged with low quality programs.
