Well, no. 90% didn't hate it.
I think it should be dumped at -2 or -1. The thing is, many people will vote 1
and say, "This would be good for quickies..." and give the idea that they don't
like it, yet they voted 1. They're just *too nice*.
I am all for a high number of stories per day. Slashdot claims to get hundreds
of submissions per day. But there's a reason why you don't see them all,
excluding duplicates, posted - because a good number of them just plain suck.
And that's the same here. A good number of them just plain suck, and people
don't seem to know how to judge.
The most reasonable solution I can think of is something that, IIRC, you've
already got planned: adding more categories and then letting us filter them out
like on Slashdot. But if this is to work, then everything can't be in "news,"
etc. If there was a system like this, I'd probably filter out "Security,"
"Funny," (I have a great sense of humor - but, meaning no offense, I find 99%
of the humor on K5 and /. very silly and, heh, well, dorky. But I don't insult
someone because of their sense of humor. I just don't have the same kind
sometimes) and a couple others.
That'd probably work, assuming people can put things in the right categories.
I'd also like to filter out stories posted by specific people (allow us to
write-in, perhaps. And if we made a typo in the name, oh well. I just would
like the ability to). No names... :)
