Heh, guess you found that error knowingly. I noticed the avatar issue when I saw your avatar was broken, it was a stupid oversight and is fixed now.

We're aware search (and a few other links) don't work. They simply haven't been built yet, heh. Part of the beta is just that ... to finish the unfinished sections. As for score, there are two different scores:

Article Score
User Ranking

The article score is made up of a few different factors, the strongest factor being how other users rate the article. It also takes into account things like the number of comments, views, grades, etc. This algorithm is 100% certain to be changed as we move forward. We need articles and data so we can test what works best, so as we get more data in the system, we'll try and refine it so that it's much better than it is now.

The user ranking is made up of various things as well, and similarly to the article score, it's 100% certain to change drastically during the beta.

Hope that answers your questions!

Where are you hiding Nebs? Or should I say is there a malfunction in the Neb bot programming so that Mr Magic 8 ball hasnt generated any response for a year.

He's out in the former admin pastures ... better question is how did you escape ...

Yes I know he still has admin rights, but that is for technical reasons only.
