How does the voting work?

The main functions of the site are to a) find out which comics on the internet are funny that day and b) to allow users to vote and comment on said comics.

To accomplish the first goal, we poll the internet every ten minutes to find out which comics have updated, and then link to them. Sound easy? It wasn't.

The second function of the site is pretty simple. If you like a comic, vote it up. If you think it sucks, vote it down. After a certain number of votes have been cast for a certain comic, the ratings are compiled to form a ratio.

After a comic has a ratio (which changes after every new vote), it is eligible for the Top Twenty list. This list (found on the front page) takes the twenty most recent comics that have achieved high ratios from all of the sites that our database scrapes.

That's pretty much it. No fancy politics or algorithms, so every web comic has an equal shot at making it to the top. If a comic is heavily voted down, however, it will be marked as not funny.
