in reply to Points system for frontpaging nodes

grinder, I agree whole heartedly. Although having five people agree, might make for a stagnant front page. That number might have to be adjusted although I don't have suggestions. Even having two people agree that the node is worthy of front page would be a step in the right direction.

I know that I was personally suprised that just one person could send a node to the front page. That kind of scared me (to be honest) so I don't send any to the front page. My fear is that I might send something that other people don't think is worthy of representing our community. I also found it a bit disturbing that I could send my own nodes to the front page. Wow! Talk about potential abuse! I often wondered if that shouldn't have been addressed awhile ago. I don't see people abuse that system, however I think that shouldn't be an option either (then there's no chance for abuse.)

I hope that this node does get consideration. I think that this is a worthy addition to the system. Thanks for brining this up!

    There is at least one high-level user who regularly abuses this system. He almost always frontpages his own nodes and other root nodes which he makes an early reply to. It happens too often to be a coincidence.

    Observant monks know exactly who it is.

    Hint: He always complains about downvotes too, imagine that!
