While these are all good suggestions, why not make frontpaging available at a higher level than 6? To me the frontpaging tool is not in the same category as approval, consideration and selecting an appropriate section. It should require somewhat more experience at the Monastery to be able to decide what symbols of our activities appear hanging on the front gate. Frankly I think that in my just over a year here I've just once seen a node that I felt should be on the frontpage and hadn't already been put there, so there is certainly no shortage of monks carrying out this function.

Besides, we should also consider extending this list given the population boom ;-)

Update: Another thought - since there is not much point in putting something on the front page if it will soon be pushed out of sight by a dozen more, it would be interesting to have the frontpage changed weekly, to be re-populated by the highest rep. nodes that have also been marked for FP by some threshold number of monks of appropriate level. It might also be wise to set a minimum rep. (in case of slow weeks) of something like 5*$NORM, so if there are not enough new nodes that are good enough, some old ones stay up a second week.

Update 2: Re: suaveant's comment, I do think FP should be a separate vote, though I agree (as above) that some significant rep. threshold should also be used. I don't see the front page as a place to reward good nodes in general, but rather a place to feature particularly interesting nodes of significance, especially as I'm seeing some serious node rep. inflation that often in no way reflects a node's greater significance to the understanding of Perl, but just general agreement or popularity. That's fine, but it doesn't make it front page material to me.

Update 3: ... and while we're at it, it might be a good idea to prevent frontpaging for reaped nodes (first noted by mpolo in Re: Re: When to frontpage a node?).

I'd like to be able to assign to an luser
