Featuring a "hut of the week" on the front page
... came to my mind after seeing a hut as picture of the day.
There are some very valuable hut pages on SP, it's a pity not to feature them.
More interesting than one of the many pictures of the moment, day, week and so on.
I don't know if the number is the only reason why a page type should be featured more than another.. following this logic there would be almost only peak pages and no area.
Despite Uservoice in normally the only place where improvements should be discussed, I'm curious to see what people would think of it on the normal forum.
I just put myself as a random reader coming on SP for the first time; seing a homepage with an area, few peaks and a featured hut I would find it quite pleasant.
It's just a question of taste, not everyone can agree and I understand it....
Is your objective to feature every single hut on the site?
We have over 12,000 mountain pages and over 10,000 routes. Seems to me that there is much more interest in those pages.
We also have more lists, canyons, and albums. I just don't see the demand for huts.
So with a hut of the week, we have huts for four years on SP, plus the ones that will appear :D
There are only 209 huts on SP in over 12 years. I don't think most folks use this objects. Seems the space would be better utilized to feature more mountain and route pages.
I think it should a hut. What else can it be apart from all other objects already featured, and apart from the very marginal trailheads ? Huts are magical places in mountains, they are held by people loving mountains and belong to this world, they have a soul thanks to the place they are located in and with the character of the people who devote their life to them. I think they deserve well a space.
The question is : how often. Let's see how many huts we have on SP and how often new good ones appear.

I think there should be 1 slot for other various content items. This way it could stick with the program of the frontpage and not just be one item for the week.
