Let’s continue to build Product Hunt, together
Ryan Hoover

Thanks for writing this Ryan. I certainly do hope things change. Currently, if you aren’t an early PH member or don’t have a huge following there is very little chance a product you submit will make it on the front page, and that’s unfortunate. If this continues you’ll end up with a digg-like situation where a lot of people are watching the actions of a small minority. That leaves people frustrated and looking for an alternative, which is what is happening now. I don’t envy your position. I understand it will be extremely difficult to make PH fair while keeping up the same level of quality. I hope we can get to a place where it doesn’t take a book to tell you how to make it to the front page. The only advice someone should need to get to the front page is: Make an awesome product. 
Good Luck!
