How about limiting the number of posts allowed on the Monastery Gates and putting the ones with highest Reputation there first..?

I have to point out the obvious here -- while not a bad idea, you would no doubt want to combine this with some sort of freshness date. Otherwise each section in the gates would calcify as a "best of" archive, like specimens trapped in amber.

    There's also the question of whether it has a high rep because it was good or because it was the most noticed. Moving it higher on the front page is likely to raise the rep artificially, just as front-paging the node at all will raise the rep - regardless of the quality of the node. Thankfully, most front-paged nodes do tend to be of high quality.

[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: what editor are you using, on what platform?
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, geany on Debian jessie.
[shmem]: some experience with vim?
[Lady_Aleena]: None
[shmem]: I don't know geany, and don't know whether it has support for ctags.
[Lady_Aleena]: ctags?
[shmem]: ctags is a program which (recursively) extracts the symbols from source and stores them in a one-file database. This allows you to query the locations where these symbols (e.g. a subroutine name) are used anywhere in the source code tree...
[shmem]: ...from inside the editor.
[shmem]: apt-get install exuberant-ctags
[Lady_Aleena]: I think I heard vim has a big learning curve.
