    what's up with the videos on the front page lately? i think only 1 is from today and aside from that, almost all of them have less than 1mil views. Hell one of them took a week to get 1 million and was front page all week. up until recently front page videos were damn near minimum 500,000 views per day and maybe two days old. multiple vids were first day and had 1.5mil views+. is there just no traffic? i expect that on the weekends but its monday damnit, shit should pick up


    ...i'm missing something aren't i?

    wrayimmediate brings up a good point which is actually not being discussed in that other thread. Why the heck are some of these videos on the front page? There was one video front paged 5 days ago with only 16,000 views only. It was posted by BuzzFeed. It's been on the front page all week and now has 2.9 million views. Did BuzzFeed pay to be there? Not to mention the video contains copyrighted material in it. It's just crazy.
