As I understand it, the Top 15 and Top 3 are based on a combination of the number of views, comments and times the project is marked as a favorite. I don’t think the exact formula has been made public knowledge.

My second project posted made it to the top three, and a couple others to the top 15. I don’t think it is anything underhanded. The projects most likely to make it to the top seem to be workshop projects or jigs, followed by large furniture pieces.

As I recall, the current setup came about, at least in part, because of complaints about people who would post several projects all at once, usually of small items that could have been in a single post, which would push more popular types of projects off the front page. (Not saying I agree, but that is what I remember seeing back at that time).
