I don't mind an authour approving his/her own node, but it seems a little self-serving for them to also frontpage their own node.

One of my nodes starting getting lots of votes after I'd posted it, not bad for something I thought would be of limited academic interest to the community. Then I realized someone had frontpaged it, and I felt like a proud papa that my little node had a moment of fame.

Frankly, I mentally -- a node if I see it was approved and front paged by the authour. It's almost like admitting no one else will find the node worthy.

So, turning to alternatives: Yeah, I dislike the practice of frontpaging by an authour. I don't know if it makes sense to prevent the authour from doing that .. does it make sense to prevent the node from being frontpaged until after a few hours have passed and/or until there are at least three replies to the original node, or until it has been voted on a number of times?
