in reply to Considering Front Paging a Node?
I would also stress that it isn't important that the nodes be unique. You never know when a new visitor will "join the conversation." It might be old hat to those of us who've been around for awhile, but that doesn't mean it isn't new to the Monk who signed on last week. Sure they can use Search, but I think most people only resort to search when they have a specific problem or interest. I read PerlMonks like a newspaper, not because I only want to read one thing, but because I want to see what's going on in the world. Remember that magazines like "Bride" and "Home and Garden" recycle the same content over and over again, to make sure that when someone needs to know about something it's there on the front cover.
Just my two cents. :-D
