in reply to Best and Worst Nodes of The last month / year

Worst Nodes of last 365 days

I don't think so...

This is the kind of usability problem that drives non-computer people crazy. Yes, of course the nodes in question are from the last 365 days, that doesn't mean you have to say so. I think "in the past month, "within the last year" or "up to a year ago" are quite sufficient to allow people to understand, without sounding like a dork.

I also wish to register my dislike for the idea of best/worst nodes of the year starting from the beginning of the year/month. I'm not so fussed about what this means for Worst nodes, but for Best nodes, a brilliant node that scores on the Best nodes of the year in December will get wiped out at the end of month, when it could have been showcased for eleven more months. That would suck.

    Agreed. For the most part, it sounds like a gratuitious change request to me.
