mk, this post appeared higher in my feed than another post that had more shares (1 vs. 0) and the other post was submitted ~8 hours more recently. I thought the ranking might be due to me following #technology and none of the tags on the other post, but I went ahead and followed #crime (one of the tags on the other post) and regenerated my feed, and was given the same result. Is there possibly an unpublished draft comment on this post that is pushing it higher in the feed rankings? I am following the authors of both posts.

Obviously, this is not an urgent #bugski, mk, and I'm sorry, veen, to make this garbage/unrelated comment on your post. Just trying to get the site's mechanics perfect for when Fox and Friends talk about Hubski and then Donald tweets a link to us.

edit: mk, I should've PM'd you this so as to avoid obfuscating things. I can delete this comment upon request for additional dataz

edit 2: I am struggling with verb tense because this comment affects rankings

Yeah, for some reason it’s been stuck in first place in my feed since I posted it. I feel somewhat flattered but I’m pretty sure it’s not what’s supposed to happen...

Has it dropped since?

Yep. It seems like either a minor or short term error in the feed rankings/placement calculation. Not a big deal whatsoever, just interesting.
