    This has been asked before, but as far as I have seen we didn't get an answer - what's up with the 47 days? After the introduction of a wreck limit, the list hasn't been all that useful anymore anyway because many good posts which would earlier have stood out wreck-wise now only receive one wreck. But I still found it worth looking at the list from time to time. But now that you can see the recommended posts of the last 47 days (instead of 7), it has become completely useless. I first thought it must be a glitch, but as it hasn't been changed back, I guess it must be a deliberate change. I don't understand the reasoning behind it.

    I agree, it's completely pointless now - I doubt if anyone bothers looking anymore. I reckon it was set at 47 days because the rec pages were being filled up with 1 or 2 rec posts since the 'new order'.
    It's been overcompensated for methinks.

    I don't look. I liked it better the old way. Sometimes even the rec whores had an amusing way to get them.

    It seems that humor has left the forums to a degree since the change.

    33% of page 1 posts still only have 1 rec.

    They've improved it by reverting to an inferior implementation than the original one. Well done.

    Yes, of course I'd like to see the wreck limit reverted (or at least changed to something more useful), too. But this is at least better than the 47 day list (which I've been told was a mysterious fault).

    Actually User 160959 has never posted in the forums.

    The recommended list is pure crap. Always has been, always will be.
