New XDA Feature: Vote to Front Page
Today we launched the XDA forum redesign for everyone (which we hope you are enjoying, minus the few bugs that we are still working to fix). One of the many new features of the redesign is the “Vote to front page” button, as you can see in the attached screenshot. The button can be found in any thread view in the forums. This is an experimental feature that we hope you will use. If you see a news-worthy thread, hit the button, and your vote will rack up in a queue that our News Writers are keeping an eye on. The threads that get sufficient votes will make it to the front page. Note that you must be logged in to vote.
