Top 100 stories
These are the top 100 stories on the site... just click to read any of them. In case you're wondering, the Rank is worked out by squaring each vote a story receives (from 1 to 5), then adding all the results together ... this gives a greater differentiation than simply adding them, and ensures higher-voted stories get ahead. If this means two stories end up with identical voting totals, the higher-ranked story is the one submitted earlier.

Why do we do it this way? Because it means stories that have been around a while have to fight hard to stay on top - a single vote of 1 can knock a high-ranked story off its pedestal. While new stories have a chance of making it into the charts with a few votes of 4 or 5. So take a look at any story below, and if you don't think it deserves its ranking - vote it down, with a 1 or 2! Or of course help a story climb the board with a 5. It's up to you, the reader.
