1) I say we spend the entire month throwing off TMF's rec ratio reasoning: In order to make the rec-to-post ratio mean anything, we decided to limit the number of recommendations someone can make in any given calendar day. Each day, we pick a different person to use all 30 of our recs on. If there's 30 of us posting on this board, we can guarantee that 30 people will get 900 recs in one day during the month of April.

You may not be aware but mort2000 actively pushed a similar gaming of the recs and got suspended. As I understand it he complained too vigorously and got a complimentary lifetime ban.
