That post is nowhere near the quality needed for highlights.

There's got to be a better way to nominate things.
Why not add a "Nominate" button to posts ? If the button was clicked 20 times make the post appear at the highlights.
[QUOTE=Laserbeams;29575131]Why not add a "Nominate" button to posts ? If the button was clicked 20 times make the post appear at the highlights.[/QUOTE] It's not getting Automated And that's easily exploitable. LMAO pics would have 20 highlights per day.

[QUOTE=garry;29567365]Hopefully people are going to be making better posts in hope of getting it highlighted[/QUOTE] Did you see my idea of putting some sort of indication on a post if it gets highlighted Like a gold star in the corner, or even something more drastic like a blue gradient behind it It would be an incentive to get your posts highlighted
New functionality BWAAAA [img]http://fromcheaptherapy.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/crying-baby.jpg[/img] This needs optional categories so badly. But broad ones.
[QUOTE=garry;29571744]Plus I don't see how stopping people post "wtf" would cause them to create good content[/QUOTE] I don't see why that matters at all unless the person is arguing. I also don't see what's wrong with people just saying 'this doesn't look that good' and not providing a long explanation of why they think so. People don't enjoy wasting their time explaining every detail involving why they don't enjoy something the thread mentions.

There should be a way of telling how many posts/threads a person has gotten highlighted, e.g. [img]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/navbar/star.png[/img] x 3 under their post count.

[editline]2nd May 2011[/editline] A DDt'd thread counter would be neat too, in that regard.
The facepunch homepage seems kinda cramped, now that you've added it on the home page. Oh neat, I can disable it.

Slightly unrelated and certainly a minor issue, but I think the double arrows button to collapse the Latest Highlights panel on the front page looks out of place, and should be more subtle: [img]http://www.1337upload.net/files/324873254763214.png[/img] (example)

Because giving all the whiners exactly what they want is the best thing to do.

I think garry should try out smartness for a while, if it works and increases quality on Facepunch keep it, if it just causes problems, remove it.
I'm just saying that if the majority of the people want smartness, it's obvious it can't hurt to add it. Garry should make a poll in GD about it, else someone else should.

Like Erp said, at least try it out?
There's been a sudden influx of quality threads, the system works!
[QUOTE=BurnBlackJay;29581393]If your child is screaming for sweets in the supermarket you've already failed as a parent hehe[/QUOTE] how so?
dear garry i think it would be a good idea to cut posts to X amount of characters and img_thumb pictures when browsing the main highlights page yours gerbile5 )
