Hey, guys. I’d love to help to “encourage”? Alex King to update his Popularity Contest plug-in for WordPress to be WP-Cache2/APC compatible. When I was out in Denver last month, Alex said he had plans to do it, and that he had already given some serious thought to how it would be architected.
To help encourage the re-write, I’m going to donate money to Alex in the name of making Popularity Contest cache-compatible. If enough people donate, it may help to put the project at the top of his every-growing list of things to do.
I can absolutely be bribed. 😉
Seriously, this is something I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years now – hopefully I can find some time to make it happen soon.

That would be a terrific idea.
If this does happen, would there be any possibility of making it respect spam as well?
As in, only count comments/pings/trackbacks after they’ve been approved? I have a lot of posts that are unfairly popular because they’ve been pinpointed by spambots…
Please read the FAQ.
Sorry to be the guy that requires the faq referral… i’m usually not this dumb… usually.
Any progress on this project? I know you mentioned you had a few ideas to fix this. Do you need helping implementing it?
