Promoted lists

Not a big deal but it seems that there is (once again) an issue concerning the promoted lists.

- http://www.listal.com/list/my-director-lists-xanadont

This list was promoted with only 7 votes (I didn't know how it was possible... I thought 9 was the minimum)

- http://www.listal.com/list/complete-review-ridley-scotts-movies

This list has received 10 votes 14 hours ago and it is still not promoted why ?

I'm not angry, just curious...

Eventually, my list was promoted with 11 or 12 votes...

When I started, it was only 3 votes but with more than 10 votes, it is getting rather ridiculous...

And now, it has been promoted again with 17 votes! I'm sorry, but it doesn't make much sense...

Once again, it has been confirmed by a fellow user that the 1st promotion is at 12 votes...

I have 2 issues with this:

1. 12 votes is way too high. I mean, I have about 400 lists(!), so I alwayw have one list close to be promoted so I'm allright but it find it really discouraging. It means that if you create a new list, if you don't have many friends following what you do, if you don't promote your lists(which is something really annoying... 'have you seen the last naked chicks list I have made?'), it will take literally ages before your list is promoted. It is above all nasty for the new users, how long will it take before one of their list get promoted?

2. I'm absolutetly and positively sure that some lists are promoted right now with just 7 votes. Why is there suddenly a difference made between lists?!?

When I started, the 1st promotion was at 3 votes so you didn't have to make something totally amazing to get promoted. When my first list was promoted, it felt like one of the greatest achievements and it motivated me to make more and better lists. Right now, you have to wait forever before something happens... And I have more than 140 followers! I think it would be better to lower the 1st promotion. It is more fair for the new users and there will be a quicker rotation of the lists, instead of the same thing for 12 hours....

Do we really need to have three topics on this?

I'm assuming you either accidentally created an Off-Topic thread and did a new one so it'd be in Listal Feedback, or created both to get more exposure (if this is the case, Listal Feedback is where Tom is most active, so that'll be your best bet).

I've moved the Off-Topic thread to Listal Feedback since it has the most posts. Head thereabouts to continue the discussion. I'll be locking this one so we don't get discussion across separate topics and thus we'll keep the conversation in one place. It's no big deal, really.
