To those wondering about the front pageSubmitted by Jefferson on Thu, 05/02/2013 - 18:58
From what I've been told, Jon is working on an algorithm that will allow you to customize the front page to whatever parameters you select. Please cut the guy some slack. He has a day job AND he's trying to help out here at the same time.
This is mainly (as I understand it) because MN is going on a (much needed) vacation for a couple of weeks, and he is the one who decides what goes on the front page. Since the mods are a little skittish about front paging something, as this is not their property, a choice is being made available. (the front page will continue to be updated in Michael's absence)
Michael will return in "at least two weeks."
Please exercise some patience as the bugs get worked out. I don't know of another site that is more lenient on topic, or makes more of an effort to please everyone by allowing this type of personal customisation.
I'm not sure how it will all work out, (it could essplode) but I tip my hat to the ones trying to make it happen. Thanks for understanding.
