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

Since frontpaging one's own node creates such needless strife, it would make things a lot simpler if we didn't allow it.

I come down on the side of letting peer pressure handle this. It doesn't happen that often, and it's fairly quickly corrected. If anything, we might consider raising the bar on who can frontpage. The list of who can frontpage has gotten pretty big. The pool of Saints right now is larger than the pool of Friar-and-above was two years ago. Perhaps it's time to adopt a (somewhat) level neutral rule, whereby only the top N monks can frontpage.

    Downvoting is peer pressure. Placing it up for consideration, and everyone voting on it and someone going in and editing it is just a waste of time.

    Hi,

    The pool of Saints right now is larger than the pool of Friar-and-above was two years ago.

    exactly this brings me again to my proposal (never mentioned it here before) not to stop at saint, and have some level 11 @ 5000+ XP (perlangel?) and something 10000+ XP "perlgod"

    Sounds probably too pathetic, but - after all - this comunity is developing and old rules may not apply that much longer.

    Bye
