in thread History now influences voting
Ah, I am sorry; I didn't mean that RAT special cased it's presentation of nodes. I meant that as a user interaction side-effect of RAT putting OBFUs and CUFP at the bottom that users (well, at least this one) would be slower getting to those nodes than PMD or SOPW, which RAT puts at the top.
You're probably right about two weeks being long enough regardless, but my impression is that popular nodes I've written in SOPW get their reputation quickly and then are forgotten, whereas my japhs get reputation trickling in over time. I expect that your change will be fine (as I said, I agree with the spirit of the change), but request that this aspect be considered as you get empirical data post-impementation.
