They don't pick it, it is an algorithm that has to do with views and ratings. Just cause you have the top rated picture doesn't mean you get on the front page (I was in a top rated picture for 3 days in a row and it never made the front page). Old pics are usually run if they're significant to current events (i.e. a skiers death). This system is also newish (since they revamped the pictures section a few months ago), before they were picked out by a staff member (and didn't change as often).
Leave. Just leave. You are literally so fucking stupid I want to punch myself in the face repeatedly. People on the internet usually don't bother me in the slightest, but for some reason every single time you post I want to fucking murder baby animals. For the sake of my sanity, and the rest of NS, leave and never come back, or just fucking kill yourself. Fuck- Ar6Rider to KangBang
its whack. the point is not that i don't like snowboarders but to not have them on the cover of a ski community website. i come to NS to see skiing. not snowboarding. i skateboard to. if you would go to thrashers site and see a rollerblader there would be a up rising. fucking idoits.
