Awesome The Homepage Is Working

If you wondered what the little orange heart icons are for, they are how the system decides to put threads on the homepage or not, and where to rank them.

You'll notice they are ranked by popularity. If you like a thread and think it's front page material, simply click the heart button in the OP or on the social sidebar. These popular threads will also show up in some of the side bar areas.

There may still be a few hiccups in this system but at least it seems to be functioning correctly now!

Hey Brix, you know how there are four big ones, like Skyrim, Dark Knight etc? Those are awesome! But who updates them? Does someone update them and pick the pictures for it, or do they update automatically?

Brix picks those crouton. And then makes the images. So if you bribe him, I'm sure he could put something else there hehehehe.

Yeah those have to be made and added manually. Over time I will change them as popular threads are created. We should probably come up with a system for threads that are considered for inclusion there. Like must have at least X replies and X hearts or something, to ensure that people put time into making quality threads.
