Order in submission gallery

Hi Chris,

just one quick question regarding the way challenge post create the submission gallery.
It looks as if it's a random order so any App can be on the first page when a user/voter load the page. Can you confirm ?

    I can't speak with any authority on the matter but I noticed our submission seems to change it's position in the submission gallery seemingly at random...

    It was on the first page, then the fourth, then I saw it on the second page...

    My best guess is that the submission gallery is ordered based on the date the submission was created (not the date it was posted to the gallery).

    Hey guys - it's totally random and there is a drop down for different sorting options. Ive been sending around the submission gallery link with various sort in the URL (?sort=recent, etc). I'll see if I can make it more randomized programmatically.

    Hi Chris,

    on our side we do not change position quite often. mostly 3rd and 4th page.
    We're asking this as definitely Apps on the first page will yield more views and awareness in the contest :)
    Would there be a way to completely randomize the order on a per user/session basis ? just for pure competition fairness :)

    As a side question, could you tell us in a few lines:
    - the next step of the process
    - how will the voting happen: login / account needed, Facebook ?
    - how many votes allowed per day / per user ?
    - how the submission will be displayed once the voting starts ?
    - will there be a most popular filter added to the current gallery filter ?
    - will Evernote be promoting the voting period to its users or we should just rely on our own effort to bring people to vote ?
    - how many people did vote during last year edition ?

    Thanks anyhow for your reactivity this week-end and this great context.
    To all contestants, have a nice competition, Good luck to you.

    David
