another sidebar idea - maybe another 5 high ranking articles, but those
which don't have the minimum five rankings. ie, i have some articles that
are ranked "5" from 1-3 rankings. they really shouldn't be 5's.

so, my idea is to have a box which encourages people to rank these to give a
better indication of their true value. it'd be hard to describe this concept
in a simple title, but maybe a title attrib onmouseover could help explain
it. or, we could call it 'fresh and hot?' or 'up and coming'. who knows...

another possibility is to re-raise half-decent articles to be
featured/re-promoed on the frontdoor. and maybe a paragraph encouraging
people to rank/comment if they haven't previously.
