I guess this is part of the reason we get to Consider the node before it is frontpaged.. ie ask one of the editors to add the READMORE tags.
As for using the front page, I hardly ever go there. But I do agree that it is the first place a new monk or potential monk will see. It's what I saw first.
How about limiting the number of posts allowed on the Monastery Gates and putting the ones with highest Reputation there first..? You would obviously also need to put a time limit on how long the node could stay on the Monastery Gates, otherwise we would have very very old nodes with high reputation there..
Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
