Would it be useful to try changing the editor's choice after you put up the weekly figures? Just asking cos I added jointing a rabbit last time I changed them round; I wonder how much difference this is making?

After a selection of seasonal stuff I think the best thing is to pick from the lower end of this chart, what do you think?

Didn't spot the change, but I guess that shows the power of eds choice

I am not totally sure about picking on the "losers" for eds choice, for that matter what about the ones not making the chart?

I just think an intelligent choice of seasonal topical and showing a balance of what the site is about.

It's just that at the moment I've got a list of 100+ to pick from so picking out the seasonal ones is hard enough (and that's at the moment, think of all those articles to come ) - and as we've said before a lot of earlier articles might have suffered through sheer lack of casual visitors before we came up well in search engines etc - making them more prominent on a cyclical basis might have an effect not only of giving them well deserved views but being the one article that attracts a casual visitor in to becoming a member...
