I have a solution: Have different sections. One for NEWEST (which will move to the Popular section once they reach a certain amount of views, get a 3.5 or above), one for most popular (those with the most views and highest scores and can be given this distinction withing a short amount of time), and one for highest rated within 8 hours. Also, give the users options of which section they would like to be on top so they can go directly to the popular section, and also go into the popular within 8 hours section. DeviantART does it, and 95% of the time, the artwork is absolutely stunning.
You just restated the whole idea for the art portal then. The whole concept of the Art Portal is to showcase people who deserve praise by their peers. THEY ARE THE DIFFERENT SECTION. Also we have several ways to getting to filterd art.
1. Scrolling over the Art tab and seeing options: Latest, Greatest, Popular, and Art Forum(For thread )
2.Clicking on said Art tab and viewing the various categories, "Brand Spankin New," "Popular," "Best Art This Month," "Best Art This Year," and "High Ranking Classics"
3.On the left you can choose which category of Art you want: Illustration, Fine Art, 3D, Pixel, and Other.
I also have to ask Hiryu, are you a Republican? You have a tendency to derail conversations off the main topic, and pull up bogus numbers about subjective points. "95% of the time the artwork is absolutely stunning."
Why is it 95%? Why not 99% or 99.9%?
