Site of the Moment

Postby jch02140 » 2007-07-03 09:56 am

I think an option to allow admin or the topsite system to automatically pick a random site and put it on top of the list as the site of the moment would be great.

Admin can set the duration of the site before the system pick the next one.

that's already sort of what the featured member is, but it's random all the time

I'd kind of like to have the option of setting a site as featured myself rather then it always being random. However I'd like it to be random if wanted to.

That way if there is a new site on the list that I (the topsite owner) thought was really high quality and needed more recognition we could make it the featured member and help it out.

Yeah, I guess we could. I just thought it might have been nice to do that. Or perhaps just be able to give more weight to certain usernames making it so they appeared more often in the randomness. =P

Where can we find the code for the feature member not the HTML but the acutal code?
Thanks again, Rich

I like the Featured Member feature. Having it random gives everyone a chance to be seen there... I think keeping it that way might be best for the long term.

In fact, long ago (at TopsiteLists.com) for me (before I switched to ATS), the "Site of The Moment" would sometimes get stuck and there was nothing I could do about fixing it. When that happened, some members complained that feature would best be re-named to "Site of the WEEK" and/or "Site of the MONTH"! LOL

I know this is an old thread, so I thought I would ask before I began...

If I created a mod where you could toggle between a random site or a site you specify, would you use it? Thanks!

That'd be great.

I had another idea. An addition to the "In" "Out" "Pageviews" filtering there could be a "Random" option. So for example, if the site is very big and you want a list of random sites in a specific category, you could get it!

You could base a complete topsite on it, by just having random lists. Small sites with few visitors who don't stand a chance getting to the top of the lists would add their sites more often if there is a random feature that gives them higher chances of getting seen.
