I was really torn as to whether to write this reply.

While I agree that not just anything should make it to the front page, and that on ocasion ive seen nodes that were not necessarily worthy. My worry is that after seeing your node newer monks might somehow feel that their opinion of worthyness is not as valid as that of older hands, and more importantly that we will end up with a relatively static front page.

I hope that people dont front page useless nodes. But I also hope that people front page worthy nodes without worry. Otherwise the frontpage could end up a quite boring place to go...

a system where multiple monks have to approve a node for the front-page would be a better quality-control measure

I don't think this is a good idea at all. Comittees almost always make bad descions, or even worse no decisions.
