By side-lining that page, new and old users alike can't get a grip of the incoming action, unless they go to that page. Maybe by reordering the drop-down menus, and lowering the amount of views/votes, we can deal with the overly casual user.... those dabblers of already rated content ._.

That's sort of a misconception though - while the Judgment process was working better before the 2012 redesign, the "Portal" page was steadily declining in visits. To new internet users, GAMES and MOVIES had meaning they understood, but "Portal" meant nothing, and "Flash Portal" translated as "page for an outdated, dying format that isn't nearly as exciting as all the other shiny new things on the web". So even if we had kept the "Flash Portal" button in the nav, the traffic would have continued to decline - probably exponentially over this past year due to the dramatic exponential shift that is happening - and we would likely be in the same situation we are now with the judgment process going too slow.

Wow, my stupid April Fools game actually got 5th place. Is this some kind of joke or something?

Out of curiosity, how is the TouchJam judged? Is it by star rating or panel of judges kind of thing?

It's judged by NG and the guys from Scirra (Construct 2 devs) provided their top three, which has become the official top three. Right now the remaining winners are still being pondered over in the NG office, it's hard to finalize these things.
