Challenges

It has been very challenging building this site.

1. For certain ideas the number of recorded associations exceed the space of the Results
    area.
2. Popular links should be slightly favored and should suppress junk ideas in the Results
    area.

Solution

These are the solutions provided for above challenges.

1. An algorithm was generated to manage which associations are listed. Initially this was
    simply a randomized selection of links. Algorithm determines which results to display.
2. An algorithm was built to slightly favor popular links, and gradually suppress junk ideas
    are determined by links that are not endorsed by other users.
