( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
As I noticed before, there is no real standard for when to frontpage a node, and I feel this is not sufficient. This morning I asked in CB why a particular node was frontpaged, and it appeared some monks have really different 'rules' for frontpages than I have (some others act similar).

My ruleset goes like:

  1. I 'OK' a node if it's properly formatted, doesn't feel trollish and it is posted in the right section. If it's not, I go to CB and ask for other opinions. I may move it thereafter. or consider it.
  2. I do not normally frontpage a node.
  3. If a node is really something of special beauty or importance, I frontpage it. If I'm not sure, I go to CB for more opinions.
  4. I never frontpage my own nodes, as frontpaged nodes have an unfair headstart.

The other monk said he frontpaged a node because he didn't know the answer and didn't see any replies.

As always, the truth lies in the middle, and I'm probably too restrictive. So, what do you think?
