One thing that I'm itching to write is a system whereby, on your computer, a script gathers the newest nodes and displays them; for each node, you get 5 voting options, "Definite ++" ,"Possible ++", "No opinion", "Possible --", and "Definite --". You would mark these as you want, but these votes would not actually be cast until a fixed time (settable to right before your votes are refreshed); anything definite would automatically be cast for you, everything else left unvoted for. This would allow you to mark articles throughout the day that you think you want to vote for but won't be sure until you see what else is available. Of course I've not gotten anywhere close to writing this yet, but it's still an idea...
