Idea for making the gameslist more fair for everyone!

You know the list, that has 66 Pages to click through all the games made by everyone…

and you know that if your game is on page 54, it is more likely that the game on page 1 will be played/voted 100 times more!

I think it is kind of unfair to always place the same games on the same pages. It is a natural behaviour of humans to only look at page 1, 2, 3 and, if the person

is nice, click on some random pages.

THE IDEA:

How about changing the database query to an algorithm that returns the gamelist at completely random order !!

And this should be the default behaviour. But of course the user can search for specific games or change the order to be alphabetic or something.

 

What do you think?
