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?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
