A question about this goal: What's the deal with "username wants to do X" goals with thumbnails? March 27th, 2007 22:51

Answers:

Todd Schoonover is rehashing old avatars

The boxes that appear at the bottom of screens has a random sampling of goals. More popular goals are highlighted and have increased font size. Usually three random users are also singled out and the picture that appears is their avatar beside a statement that they want to do a certain goal.

This feature exposes people to goals and people they may not have encountered before. The random nature of it also means that sometimes you’ll find yourself among them. Other than ranking of the random selection of goals, the highlighting/font change is not indicating that those goals are better than any other goal.

Hi Todd,

I’d bet the farm that you and I have actually never had a goal featured among them.

See my entry How do I get my goals featured on the main page?.
