Frequently Asked Questions

(or questions we think people will ask frequently)

Note*: Please e-mail us at team@rantfoo.com with questions that we don’t already address here so that we can add it to our FAQ.

1. I don't know how to use the website. What should I do?

We have a help page that explains what this website is and how to use it. For now, that's your best option.

If that doesn't solve your problem, then you can go ahead and let us know how much we suck at our jobs here.

2. Can I post anonymously?

Short answer: yes

Long answer: Explanation and how-to here

3. Can I post a rant without visiting the website?

Short answer: yes

Long answer: We explain it here

4. How are rants ranked?

The RantFoo Ranking Algorithm is the default ranking system used to sort the rants. The algorithm calculates a rant's rank based on three factors: age of the rant, net total votes, and the submitter's rant karma. The algorithm is constantly being tweaked to ensure that the front page contains rants that are fresh and popular.

6. What programming language did you use?

Python: the language of gentlemen (and ladies).

7. Database?

We're currently using PostgreSQL, but we like the other ones too.

8. I want to give you money. How do I do that? ;-)

We're glad you asked. Please feel free to contact us, and we can talk about it.
