Things have been weird ever since they added the viral pages option then took it away a week later. Things were actually featuring pretty fast for a while when they made the latest pages update every 15 minutes. But now if they don't you get buried and pushed back every 15 minutes. It only works if stuff features fast and everybody at least starts on the first couple pages.
I've seen people have two memes feature on the front of the latest together in an hour, while I'm waiting on something I submitted hours before them. So basically nothing has changed bro, nobody has the slightest idea wtf is going on around here lmao!
