1. Change default home tab to "Top Day"
2. When you filter by "highest rated," I want to see content with the most upvotes
3. Put the daily "featured" homepage vids/articles back to 10 rather than 4
Hey guys, I've been becoming slightly irritated with the new home screen and whole video rating system. I know NS has all these fancy algorithms to determine what shows up first when you hop on the site, but it seems to me like there's too much emphasis put of the hot stuff while the best content quickly gets buried. I think that by default the homepage should bring you to the "Top Day" tab so that when someone comes on to check in once in a while or someone is new to the site, instead of seeing some random kid's edit with 30 upvotes first, we see the best content put out across the ski world. Which brings me to my next point... when I click the "Top all-time" tab, I want to see the highest-upvoted vids of all time. No algorithms, just the most upvotes. Not that hard, I don't think. I find an edit with 800 upvotes on the 10th page while one with 200 is on the first page. Doesn't really make sense, yeah? Finally, I did like the daily featured vids/news (though too much emphasis is put on news that no one reads), it made it easy to catch up on what I missed each day I didn't check in to NS. Whey have these featured vids dropped down to a rotation of 4 rather than 10? I think it was much better to have a greater amount of solid content right there for everyone to see first thing.
Anyways, love the site, just a rant on easy things I think should be fixed. Would love to hear your feedback.
