Interesting take on the algorithm. I post only once a week and it tends to be rather longer posts than average, being fiction and all. I have floated in and out of various Top Writer categories (Short Story, Space, etc.) multiple times. From my experience, it seems reader engagement time may also be a factor.

Sci-fi short stories to inspire your inner rocket building, planet-hopping, astrophysicist space pirate. 🚀
