New "Hidden Gems" feature

This is an experimental feature whose point is to highlight great pics which have been underrated.

Below eligible pics on the site, you'll see a button that says "Pin to front page" in the lower left of the image info box:



An image is eligible if it meets the following conditions:

  • Has a score of 50 or less
  • Is at least a week old
  • The model in the picture has no more than 25 images on the site (or if there is no name set)

Once you click the "Pin to front page" button, the image will appear under the Hidden Gems section on the front page for 5 hours. You can only pin a single image at a time. After the 5 hour period you can pin a new image (or the same one, if it is still eligible).

Tips to find images: Image search with random ordering, or images with no name set.

(Credit to cgsweat's post for serving as one source of inspiration for this idea.)

Edit: Raised score cap to 50, up from 20.
Edit: Raised amount of time images stay pinned to 5 hours, up from 2.

Thanks for the credit, Chainer. 

I just pinned a nameless pic and it works nicely.  Having trouble finding models with 25 posts or less though.  Also it seems if someone wanted to, they could bypass the (no more than 25 images on the site) criteria by temporarily changing the name in the post.  That is, except for models with locked names.

I did put in a check so that it won't let you pin a pic if you changed the name within the past 24 hours.

As for the 25 pic restriction, the goal here is to highlight not very well known pics/models. I could see an argument to increase this to, say, 50, if the 25 is overly restrictive.

In my opinion the 2 hour limit is way too short. We are spread all over the world in different time zones, so just a very few will have the chance to see the girls on this page.

Edit:
BTW: Great idea, especially for finaly gettin a name. So maybe don't restrict the pics without name so much.

I'm curious why this one that was pinned seemed to become ineligible after I added the name: " class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"> , given that it currently has a score of 40, was posted in Feb, and she only has 8 pics on the site.

EDIT:  Oh I see, the option probably just doesn't appear for me because I changed the name within the last 24 hours, and the pic just happened to finish its 2 hours around the same time.

Here's another that meets the hidden gem criteria but that option doesn't appear?  " class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">

Made a few changes:

You now get a notification when your image is done being pinned that tells you how much new score and how many new comments your image got while it was pinned.

Images now stay pinned for 5 hours.

" class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">

Button shows up for me...

Any chance you can add an indicator as to when we last pinned was? I last pinned 10 hours or more ago and don’t have a pin option. I was trying to pin an image with 21 points, though can’t pin any images at this point.

Would there be a way to add a search filter for score range?  I'm thinking of something like an upper and lower range that the user could type in.  0-50 would work nicely for Hidden Gems, and I'm sure there could be many other useful applications of it.

I changed this slightly so that images don't disappear when the 5 hour pin time expires; you can filter for them on the image index page here. You can still only pin one image per 5 hours though.

It could definitely be done but I don't consider it important enough to clutter the search form with it. Besides half the fun of hidden gems is looking for the eligible pics :)
