Projects Users are Following doesn't really show the most followed projects

I'm the coordinator of,

I recently got 14 new followers within the last 7 days, but my project doesn't get to the front-page in the "projects users are following section"

I noticed that the are lots of other projects in that section that have much less new followers in the last 7 days ( Ajax Control Toolkit has 10 in the last 7 days; Orchard Localization Jp  has 10 followers total and 8 in the last 7 days, Image resizer fow windows has just 5 in the last 7 days, AutoSPInstaller 6 in the last 7 days, IronPython 5 ... etc.)

Can anyone please do something about it ?

or at least give me some answers or something, I tried contacting codeplex support but got no response from there

I did some investigating and it looks like there is an issue with the algorithm we use to calculate the list of trending followed projects. I have logged an issue internally and we will address it in our next release.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
