That's the impression I got from reading the rules at Chef2Chef - but they just did the monthly list update today and that didn't happen. Maybe a site has to be "nominated" for the Hall of Fame before they get moved instead of just being moved automatically? I've noticed some of the sites didn't move into the Hall of Fame until they had 50,000 points. Maybe they didn't have enough new sites nominated to bump one off into the Hall of Fame and still have 100 on the list? I just don't know. But, I will try to go back through the nominations forum and see if I can find an answer.
Actually, I like the "not moving until nominated" idea better. When it's our turn to be #1, staying on the list at #1 will probably bring us more visitors and potentially more new members than if we're out of sight off in the Hall of Fame. It's a trade off between the prestiege of being in the Hall of Fame and the visibility of being #1.
THE FEAR FACTOR:
It seems the "Pros" in the #2 slot are starting to hear our footsteps marching up behind them and they don't like it! For Jan/Feb their avg daily 5-Star vote was 1.67, in March it went up to 2.34, then the first couple of days in April it climbed to 3.2 .... but since we got to the "under 300 5-Star votes" difference they have really been pouring on the votes ... the past couple of days they have jumped up to over 18 per day! "We shall overcome" them - but it will just take a little longer than it looked like last week.
Everbody's ONE VOTE PER DAY moves us a little closer!
