Advogato stuff

I'm quite confused by the recent diary page threshold thing.

let's see: I've noted that a person whose diary I'm moderately interested in has dropped below the default threshold of 3, so his entries don't appear on the recent diary page anymore.  "ok", say I, and I go and give his diary a rating of 10 (the maximum), thinking that would fix the problem.

do his entries appear on the recent diary page after that?  no, they don't. do I have any way to trace how his final rating is computed?  not that I can see, other than perhaps reading the Advogato source code, which I'm not going to do, thankyouverymuch. can I set the threshold to something below 3, in any way other than doctoring the recent entry page URL by hand (and just bookmarking it)?  not that I can see.

so my options to escape this censorship-by-community are, basically:

  • log out
  • read the recent entry page through a special bookmark
  • read the individual interesting diaries through RSS

this is So Very Wrong.

UPDATE: the immediate problem is now happily solved.  thanks, Stevey!
