'Baker of the day

a randomish showcase of a baker's talents
  (+11, -7)
(+11, -7)
  [vote for,
against]

I propose a new area on the bakery (perhaps under account) where every day a random active baker (e.g. anyone with more than 30 ideas who has posted or voted in the last month) is chosen, and this area shows say 3 of their ideas every time the page is refreshed.

Defeating my own logic in the process, I'd like to propose [hippo] as the first recipient of this random honour.

       I was proposing that on a given day only one halfbaker's ideas are displayed, and that the short name for the idea (rather than just a link to the 'bakers' name) is displayed.

       ok, I've done a picture now (see link).
neilp, Feb 24 2006
  

       Pssst. It's about the ideas.
bristolz, Feb 24 2006
  

       Thanks [neilp]. I'd better vote [+] for your idea now.
hippo, Feb 24 2006
  

       What about 'baker of the week' (or for the other decile, 'baker of the weak')?

       What [bris] whispered.   

       Even so, why a minimum of 30 ideas? Why not anyone who has posted ideas? [johng] has 2 to his name and one of them is regarded as the best idea here by a long shot.

       What bris said. Fishbone.
DrCurry, Feb 24 2006
  

       I think you're limiting it too much with the recent posting requirement and minimum number of ideas.
ato_de, Feb 26 2006
  

       As it won't be me again for another few thousand days, I can remove my [+] vote now.
hippo, Feb 26 2006
  

       But it's random - it could be you every day for the next few years.

       cut it out, bris!

       Damn! Beaten by Tom Baker again.

       Tom Baker! Will you *please* stop phoning me!
zen_tom, Feb 28 2006
  

       I think that any baker with any number of ideas should be able to get in the drawings. I don't have all that many ideas but it doesn't mean I'm not an active member. Although I would understand making sure that inactive accounts have a certain number of ideas. Don't want a week of people who only ever made up one poor idea.

       Psst, Polly, if you want to be included in the drawings, send a $100 in unmarked bills to the address below, and I'll make sure you're included!
