Why not limit the number of deals per poster to a time window?
Okay, I've asked this before, but now that things have settled down (sort of), I'm asking again. I see things just get drowned in Fresh because one of the post-a-zillion types is making a run. I don't care how many deals they post, that's not my problem. I can ignore that. What I want to see is a situation where it isn't all just one deal poster for a whole page.
While there's only a few doing it, one can wreck everything. If you have a new visitor to Fresh, it'll run them off. If something cool gets posted, it gets lost in the noise. Even for the determined types like myself, @catbertthegreat, @hobbit and so on, it gets tiring to wade through looking for something special.
How about no more than 5 deals in 30 minutes? It would cut down on staff having to police so hard (yes, indeed, I've seen the uptic, and then watched it drop back down in real time). Gee, that's almost a deal every five minutes. Seriously, even Wootvan's not that crazy, and he's pretty crazy on it.
