Is there a way that the site could improve the RNG for selecting patterns for pattern voting to give each pattern an equal chance to receive a vote? There are many patterns from 2007 with one or two votes, and other patterns from 2010 with hundreds.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
But good luck with that if life doesn't give you sugar or water.
There was some discussion on the "What do you want to see from a Pattern Maker?" thread about a more functional voting system, but that thread was last updated three years ago. I think it would definitely be a good idea to bring more attention to more patterns. The Top 10 are also in need of some sort of new organization method since it rarely, if ever, changes.
