I'm thinking something like an 'ET-weekly' approach. A process that
would allow especially good 'articles' from the week prior exposure to
new users. My first thought is a new editorial process of sorts, a
second 'recommend diary' button to support the promotion of the
article to 'ET-weekly' exposure. This button would be a
responsibility of the users (trusted users?), to steer
content to this hypothetical audience. For example, this particular
diary, though important to the ET community, would probably not be a
good candidate for the 'weekly' since it is perhaps not of extreme
interest to a newcomer. One would ask users to think not about "what
is important to you?", but "what do you think would be good to
show off to a newcomer?" It also allows for a category of "infrequent
reader" who can interact with the cream of ET that has deliciously
floated to the top during the past week.
This would work very well with if we make Scoop display for each
user a page with "responses to your comments" and some organisation by
whether that user has read the response or responded to it, as
suggested by MillMan in the "Random site redesign thoughts" diary.
To be clear, the front page displays the top 10 (is this configurable?) "stories", or "promoted" user "diary entries", but diary entry promotion does not turn it into a story (as only stories can go into the debate box, and promoted diaries can not).
I suppose someone should take a look at the scoop "class hierarchy" and try to explain it for the layman ET user so that it can be tweaked. As I say upthread, we have inherite a particular tweaked version of the (allegedly very configurable) scoop hierarchy, used by Kos for DKos.
"It's the statue, man, The Statue."
BTW, I think the grandaddy is MyDD, not DKos.
