Since some time now the "Top 5 of Last 24 Hours" consist of old(er) pics with lots of views but not with recently (last 24h) uploaded pics.

What has changed and why is this?

Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on. Website has some issues and unfortunately I don't have time to deal with it. We need to upgrade to a more modern platform which is a huge project.

But, please keep in mind, Top of Last 24 hours mean any photo that got the most views in the last 24 hours. It doesn't have to be a photo that was uploaded in the last 24 hours.

Thanks Ray I know. But for many years mainly new uploads were highlighted. Look at todays Top 5 - only older pics show. This way new uploads get far less attention which surely cannot be your intention I think. Rgds, Carl.

Of course, but there is no way to exclude older photos from taking those spots. It all has to do with views for the past 24 hours.

Looks like all these pics are referred via https://pointool.com/

No idea what or who that is but it looks not like normal average views but some high traffic site influencing AF.com

Example https://airfighters.com/plug.php?o=pgallerystats&mode=showgraph&photoidx=81998

That's coming up as airfighters. I have no idea what that's about. Things have been very wonky since we transferred to the new server.

Dear "admin",
What's going on ?
Already mentioned by another member/photographer, DAILY are the "Top 5 of Last 24 Hours" ONLY "non-recent" pictures!
The striking similarity is that all of these photos have generated high viewing totals through "https://pointool.com/photo" ?!
If recent added photos no longer get attention, then the incentive to still upload them at Airfighters is way off!
To be checked & corrected.

Grtz

Cool down, the admin is seeing the problem but at the moment he don`t know what to do. So we need some time I guess.
And I don`t upload pictures here to get top 5 of the last 24h. So its not nice but not a big problem, too...

Many contributers will not share your view emkey. And it is a problem as explained earlier. Airfighters.com will be less attactive for contributers to upload. I am not sure the admin sees it as a problem. He only states that there is no solution afahk.

99% of photos uploaded never make it to the Top 5. They do, however, stay on the home page for several hours for everyone to see in the form of thumbnails.

Again, the Top 5 of Last 24 Hours are chosen from ALL photos, not just photos uploaded in the past 24 hours.

The script seems to be skipping recent photos for some reason, we will look into getting it fixed.
