Two days ago HQ announced new limits on Likes (20 a day per IP or account). Then a day later an email went out outlining new Squid Angel blessing guidelines:
- One lens can have up to 5 blessings active at the same time
- Each Angel can bless up to 5 lenses a day
I would have preferred them to remove likes from the lensrank algorithm entirely, but this is the next best thing. It still allows, at least theoretically, for self-moderation - that is helping worthy lenses rise higher than they would based on traffic and sales alone. In fact, putting a limit on likes and blessings makes them more valuable, so amazing personal lenses should do even better than before.
