It appears as though there is almost no criteria or standard for what gets elected to go on the homepage anymore.. EVERYONE gets a trophy nowadays, amirite?

I'm happy if I get my post to the Just In page. I don't even know where the "home" page is. :)

It's like the Emmy's - it doesn't need to be good to win.

Honestly though, I think it may have something to do with the volume of crap being posted in the first place.

From what I recall, the just-in page was where every post was automatically published, because they were the posts that just came in/were the most recent.

Not sure if they changed that now?

And mods chose which posts were featured on the homepage, and they were VERY selective, so it felt like an honor lol.

I don't know how it works really. I know I have made 1000's of posts for only 38 Post of the Days so I guess they just pick a name out of a hat or throw a dart. I really don't know.

Because after taking a 4-year break from this website after it was sold by its creator to new administration, I have come back only to realize there are a lot less qualifying standards for posts since the site's initial conception.

It's as if much of the original creator's purpose & ambitions for the site have gone to trash. Getting a post on the homepage used to be like winning an Oscar- it had to be thoughtful or profound, something that made people think or was hilariously relatable. Just overall DEEP in a way that somehow brought the amirite community closer together.

Now it seems everyone is just hanging onto icebergs, and no one is trying to give DiCaprio a helping hand.

Not that I'm in any particular position to critique. I guess it bothers me because everything seems to go against the original purpose of what Anthony wanted for this site. Just me holding on to that outdated vision, I guess 🙄

But alas, there is no point in reminiscing what no longer is.

I would imagine that few sites like this one remain steadfast over a four year period of time. Many of us here are from a site that closed (SodaHead)) a couple of years ago and I suppose we (and the new owner) have been responsible for the changes. Perhaps you would consider coming back and participating by posting your own quality questions in the hopes that others will take your lead. Welcome back.

It was very consistent for the first 3-4 years up until it was sold. 7 years is a long time for a website to be up and running though, I suppose. I guess it is no fault buy my own that I decided to leave instead of staying around for the changes. I am hoping for that (a)

Seems so, although I rarely have occasion to see the "homepage". My very favorite post never made it there, and I'm nominating it NOW!

I don't think it is anything like a trophy, when one's post is featured some kind of way. Seems to be a random pick, mostly. By whom, I do not know.

The homepage is meant to be the page that people see when they first visit amirite. It is the page where only the best posts are published, posts of quality, kind of like winning an award. Not every posts gets published there, so pay attention to when you get that notification! It's actually a really cool thing! (biggrin)

It matters because that was the reason the site was created, over 7 years ago. Not to reward the trash with trophy in hand. Now the site has turned more into an online diary. If that does not apply to you, then no need to be concerned or offended (smirk2)(hehe)

LMAO yes, the site was created by a college student and the median age was 16-25. After he sold the site, everyone left & it got overrun by old people. So an improvement from the dead zone it became after everyone left.. sure, I suppose. But an improvement from it's original state? Absolutely nowhere close. Just like everyone else, we had our fair share of crappy posts, but those posts never made it to the homepage like we see today (nme)

Trash was a figure of speech. It is very difficult to enjoy this site if you guys keep taking everything so literally. Why so serious? (foreveralone)
