New Top Blogs Section



Since blogs are getting posted so quickly these days, I thought it would be nice if there was a way to feature specific blog posts - whether they're important blogs about the site/season or blogs that people really enjoy.

So here's what determines if a blog appears there:

1. We (steinersaysuhhh and myself) can specifically flag a blog post to be shown in the top blogs area. This is mainly so we can flag site news and season news manually. But if you feel like there is a blog post that is seeing a lot of activity that isn't showing up, you can shoot us a message and we may flag it.

2. If a blog is rated highly enough by enough people, it will automatically display. So you should vote the blogs you enjoy!

word2k9 Thanks :)

I updated this BTW, so there is now a 3rd condition that will see your blog in the top blogs -

3. If your blog is at most 4 days old and has over 5 comments, it will appear in the top blogs.

Adding this is more because a young post with 5+ comments is certainly an active blog, but for it to stay any later people will have to rate it.

If people start really using the blog rating features out of this, I may add some more rules to the top blog system.

For instance, right now the rule for a highly-rated blog will only include week-old blogs. But it's dependent on the rating itself (> 4.5) and the number of people who voted.

But if the ratings start being used, I would probably add in another case allowing a blog that's 2+ weeks old to appear as long as it's been rated highly by even more people.

Oh, and before anyone asks -

It will only show 5 blogs at a time, but they're randomly selected from all of the eligible blog posts. So don't despair if your blog post showed there one second, and the next it's not. It's probably showing up for other people at that exact moment!

I also like the poll tag on blogs that feature polls.

word2k9 Yeah just added that. I always had that on the Blog Home, where it shows which blogs have active polls, but I never brought it over to the right-side listing.

I've also increased the amount of blog entries you see when you go to the Blog Home.

If you've never gone to the actual blog home, it's here - http://www.fourdown.org/blog.cfm
