Should the queue escape limit be raised? *Please read before voting (User Poll by EDD)

gsbrock says...

I don't think raising the escape limit is the right decision, there's so much that doesn't get seen already - if it was to be raised, I think it should be done dynamically (maybe as a fractional percent of the total number of votes cast in the past 48 hours, calculated in 24 hour increments?).

The trick of the system is always going to be determining the average number of "good" sifts vs the number of "bad" sifts and creating a cutoff that eliminates as many of the bad sifts as possible while not effecting the good sifts.

The main problem inherent in the system (even with a predetermined escape limit) is that there will always be videos that fall outside of the average (both good and bad).

I think the best solution (as others have mentioned) is to use those downvotes - they exist for a reason.
