Hot Game #1: Arctic Christmas ?

The Hot Games list seems a bit wonky. Arctic Christmas is currently listed as number one, but I can't see a reason for that.

The top spot includes a link to a thread in the promo codes forum (11 comments), whereas I'd expect it to only link to a games forum.

There are 2 things here we'd like to raise...

1. If you look on the promo forum, what he have done is common practice here. Hence, we have been extremely disappointing that our thread has been forced closed by the moderators. We'd like to urge you to reconsider the unfair closure of this thread. There are plenty other similar thread with MUCH higher rate of response on TA. You will also find on this thread, that some of our TA readers here have been particularly kind with their comments about this game in particular(And to those of you,we thank you for your kind words and we're glad that you like the game). It is a simple game, but not everyone is into bigger games like for example, Crime City. We genuinely believe a simple game that is well executed has an appeal in the market.

2. When a new bakery across the road opens, offers sample to get you to visit the bakery, asks you to put in a few good words for it or refer it to a friend IF you like it and offers a prize for a lucky draw, is that under-handed? It's an invitation to try the product and an invitation to tell us what you think of it on our "official guest book". This is fair game and nothing weird or underhanded about it.

Yodeller, I've just sent you a PM.

My comments in this thread aren't related to your game. Rather, I'm commenting on the "Hot Games" ranking process in general.

the thread was briefly closed while trying to sort out the bug.

Red1 - yes, it was a bug. if you see these sort of "stuck" things in the hot list, email me arn@normalkid.com or post here.

Yodeller - your thread is reopened.
