I'm plowing through all the sifted videos from newest to oldest, and upvoting all the ones I know that I voted for. I'm on page 56 right now (which has taken me about an hour, because I had to view a few seconds of some videos to make sure I was voting for the correct ones), out of 3420 pages of sifted videos. Almost 2% there! Memory is fragile, and mine's no exception, so expect me to screw up by overlooking some of your videos that you know I voted for. Please don't take it personally if I miss one or even several of your videos. I'm just going to do my best.
Going from newest to oldest (or oldest to newest) is the only way I can think of to spread the votes around fairly. I hope to do at least 25 pages a day, with 50 to 100 pages of videos per day being my goal, which means it could take anywhere from one to four months to go through them all. And of course new videos will be continually added, so in actuality it will take longer. Oh well.
I will try to keep up on new submissions too, and I will also venture into PQs from time to time. However the thrust of my attack will still be to go from newest to oldest of the sifted videos. Maybe dag and/or lucky will figure out a way to recover votes soon so we won't have to do all of this. But I'm going to do this in the mean time, in case they can't figure it out.
