( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm second'ing tye on this one. Most of us in this discussion are regulars, but we number less than 200. There are over ?5000? registered users, averaging 1-5 visits per month. They want to see the Front Page, not the Newest Nodes. And, if we keep them from seeing half the threads, what does that say to them?

IMHO, the meme should be reversed, as should the checkbox. Every approved thread should hit the front page upon 2 hours after posting, UNLESS someone explicitly clicks that it shouldn't.

As for good nodes - that's what Best Nodes is for. Maybe, there should be a link to Best Nodes from the NavBar or the FrontPage.

Update: Or, maybe every approved node should hit the front page after N page views, unless explicitly barred from the Front Page. That way, you don't have bad stuff auto-hitting the FP just cause not enough monks were around during the window.

Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
