Limit the requirements to feature a submission.

An Idea

Sometimes, low quality submissions like this one get featured on the homepage. I remember a too low quality submission that was featured 3 times which is illegal/unfair. A submission requires alot of hard work in order to be featured.

The idea: 

1-The submission must have big number of views in a limit time. ( By default )

2- The submission must have been posted in. ( By default, too )

3-The submission must have +9/10 rating in order to be featured. ( This proves the quality and efforts put on the submission )

    1. I don't think a submission should have to accumulate views quickly, that I think would be unfair.

    2. This I think is fair.

    3. 9/10 is asking a bit much, I think 7.5+ would be better. 7.5/10 is still a pretty damn good score if you ask me.

    I have no idea how the features' algorithm works, but I haven't seen anything really like too many "low quality" submissions getting featured all the time honestly, so I don't believe anything is wrong with the features system so far. Yes, there might occasionally be some of those submissions getting featured, but not always.

    I remember a too low quality submission that was featured 3 times which is illegal/unfair

    Though, I'm sure that views are a part of features' algorithm that matter for a submission for it to get noticed/featured, so if a content gets a good amount of audience which triggers the feature, then I don't see how it is illegal/unfair, as you can't really blame the audience here.

    2- The submission must have been posted in. ( By default, too )

    What if I decided to download and play/install the content only and liked/rated it, but didn't find the need/a reason to post in?
    It's like forcing the audience that they must post anything even if there's no need/a reason to just to show that a submission is "high quality".

    In any case, it's kind of dumb to judge a content quality by the amount of comment(s) on it.

    Long-short story, the current features system is working fine in my opinion.

    I think a better solution to rename the system 'Trending'. It's near impossible when using an automated system to tell whether something is good quality or not but it is easy to tell if it's popular.
