in reply to Don't Allow Author to Front Page a Node

I must agree with ignatz, any easily abused feature (especially one with very public results) should have some kind of sanity check. Not allowing authors to FP would be a simple way (interface-wise, I have no idea of implemenation) to prevent major abuse.

Imagine the poor editors if several people started abusing the frontpage.



grep
Unix - where you can throw the manual on the keyboard and get a command

    This already happens now to an extent. One Monk frontpages a worthy node only to have it knocked off The Monastery Gates by a few careless frontpages by new Friars. Although this hasn't happened as much since Am I a power-mad Friar? was posted.

    Not allowing the author to single handily frontpage their own nodes would probably reduce such cases though.
