in reply to Too much Front Paging

I can't remember if I ever frontpaged anything. Maybe this could start a rush now, frontpage while you can!

I feel the idea of FP points is not the best. Some monks might frontpage some node, simply because they have an FP point left and want to spend it. I would feel better with a saintly power...

Maybe your call for reason will just suffice?

Cheers, Sören

    When I looked into guidelines for front paging, I read (on somenode) that the node under consideration should be on topic and well written - reflecting well on the Monastery. tye's remarks notwithstanding, I wouldn't like to see a lot of cruft and dreck on the front page just because it's a "slow news day". If there aren't enough good nodes to keep the FP fresh, I think that reflects a different problem.

    I would support the suggestion to raise the FP privilege by 2 or more monk levels. That small change would be easy to implement, easy to understand and, I think, it would have the desired effect.

    You could always give XP credits for unspent FP credits so there was no impetus to spend it ;-)
