Photo of the moment is a good idea mate

It should show the most recent photo added to the site that has some minimum criteria... a low one. The threshold is very low to make it almost random, basically showing the most recent photos added but with some criteria so it isn't just garbage. Often this photo might not be present very long, maybe just minutes, sometimes hours, depending on site activity. It isn't the highest scoring photo, since it is replaced as soon as a newer one meets the criteria. This also shakes up the POTD process until we can get adjustments there (there becomes some advantage to submitting photos mid-day as opposed to 1:00 - 4:00 AM). I don't know how easy this is to program, but if Matt can do it this will be very cool.
This could be quite difficult to achieve if we want to prevent crap from showing up while still selecting photos (somewhat randomly) from recent submissions.
What about including photos from the previous week or two in the selection? That would present a large number of photos and to be able to select one at random without as much risk of crap ending up being chosen. And how long should it stay there? Should it change on every page load? Then it really would be the "Photo of the Moment".

I'm still reading through that and digesting it.
