As I noticed before, there is no real standard for when to
frontpage a node, and I feel this
is not sufficient. This morning I asked in CB why a particular
node was frontpaged, and it appeared some monks have really
different 'rules' for frontpages than I have (some others
My ruleset goes like:
- I 'OK' a node if it's properly formatted, doesn't feel
trollish and it is posted in the right section. If it's not,
I go to CB and ask for other opinions. I may move it thereafter.
or consider it.
- I do not normally frontpage a node.
- If a node is really something of special beauty or importance,
I frontpage it. If I'm not sure, I go to CB for more opinions.
- I never frontpage my own nodes, as frontpaged nodes have
an unfair headstart.
The other monk said he frontpaged a node because he didn't
know the answer and didn't see any replies.
As always, the truth lies in the middle, and I'm probably
too restrictive. So, what do you think?
