Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sections are a different issue, and I still think manual tag filtering rather than fixed categorisation is the way to go there. You could add a few simple buttons and the mechanism would be intuitive and obvious. (I'm not sure about the Scoop side, obviously.)

Otherwise, the rec process seems to work. It reflects community sentiment about the value and readability of diaries. In practice most diaries at the moment end up rec'd, even if it's only for a while, so it's not obviously restrictive.

This doesn't guarantee that outsiders will like a diary. But how would it possible to make diaries more appealing to outsiders, without knowing who those outsiders are?

The system even works on dKos, more or less, in that diaries on the rec list do usually seem to be worth reading - although they've taken to propping it up with their rescue ranger system to give more exposure to worthwhile diaries that fall off the list.
