As Ls2000 said, it’s a combination of those factors, where the number of people selecting a project as a “favorite” gets the most weight. The exact metric is not public knowledge. But you will see many projects at the top that have innovative designs and techniques…because people like me will often choose those as favorites, not so much because we want to build one like it, but rather because there’s a gimmick or technique that we want to remember to incorporate in our own projects. Many such projects are really fleshed out in the descriptions and are quite instructional…so my advice, other than making buddies (which isn’t a bad thing), is to do something in your project posts beyond just saying, “Hey, looky what I did!” Make them instructional or useful to others (kinda bloggy) and you might get more attention.

But I concur with you…I don’t like the methodology, and this is coming from a guy who hit the top spot a couple of weeks ago. I often will go directly to the projects page to see everything because some really good stuff gets missed, but I forget to do it sometimes.
