Image of How does front page ranking work?

For the communities, pretty much however the community owners and moderators decide. We provide you capabilities to adjust which posts appear on the front page, as well as in what order. We’re not shy to admit we admire the work reddit put into its ranking functionality, so we give you that option as well.

For valME’s overall front page, we use a combination of reddit’s algorithm and customization. At minimum, we’ll tell you that we’ve doubled the value votes have as well as reduced the importance of time by half. We’ll also admit to pinning a few posts we think are exceptionally good and also occasionally changing our criteria as your communities grow. If you don’t mind, for now, we’ll keep the rest to ourselves.

About FAQ


We’re not entirely sure it’s appropriate to call this the Frequently Asked Questions area as, candidly, we don’t keep track of how often these questions get asked. Consider this community as a place where we post answers to what we anticipate your questions will be. But, if our crystal ball is malfunctioning, feel free to post your question in /GettingStarted/Help. If we turn your question into an FAQ, we’ll credit you back the karma to post it. It’s the least we can do. We also welcome suggestions at /GettingStarted/SuggestionBox.
