As “Friday Bloody Friday,” Duke Haney‘s triumphant return to these pages, has vanished (that’s a Peewee reference) from the “Most Read” list, where it has sat in kingly glory like Yertle the Turtle for the last ten days, usurped by a far inferior piece called “Eponymous,” I think it’s time to clarify something:
Unlike on TNB 2.0, where “Most Read” meant “most read all time,” 3.0’s “Most Read” means “most read in the last seven days.” The problem with the 2.0 version is that the system rewarded older pieces. In the ten months I was active on the site, only Duke managed to crack that list. So the thinking here was that having a time limit would allow more pieces to be featured on the “Most Read” list.
One of the tweaks we have in the hopper is a “Must Read” list, which would be like the old “Most Read” list, so that we can have our literary cake and eat it, too.
Because that’s a ways off, however, I’d like to share the “Must Read” list…the list of the ten most read pieces since 3.0 launched on November 15 (two days after Friday the 13th, I might add).
Here it is:
In his first post on 3.0, Duke outs himself as the author of Friday the 13th Part VII.
What makes a good title? The word “boobs,” evidently.
We knew he had serious acting chops. Now we know he’s a poet, too.
Suck it, Oh-Nine.
Brangelina, meet Grephanie.
The best word I can think of to describe this TNB debut? Perky.
In which Matt jumps through the requisite latex hurdles in order to get laid.
I don’t know why you say hello, I say goodbye.
Nick’s worst nightmare.
Look at that S car go!
