|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!
"Heck I don't know how to do it either, but do you think that's going to stop me?!!"
