I never resize.
I sorta like the idea of a "special pick," now that I think about it, although I envision it more as a movable tag that people can change at will. It'd be like a favorite, maybe even with a weekly/monthly/all time chart, but your current special pick wouldn't be set forever and would also show up on your stats page if another user clicked on you.
I agree that it's a longer discussion. And I could see earning a special distinction for good posting. I do think, however, that putting things through the hopper is a really useful tool, and perhaps necessary for this site's unique flavor.
How about "special" posters get, like, hopper biases or something? A posters with a strong history could get something like an automatic +2 to their hopper submissions. Maybe this could be a function of the average ratings of the individual poster's videos in their stats section. For instance, someone with an average video rating of 4.0 wouldn't get anything, but someone with a 4.25 would get a hopper +1, 4.5 +2, 4.75 +3 etc. It would be retabulated every 25 submissions, to accommodate changes in the average.
You could do this for poor posters too.
Can we get a user link on the front page? A small point, but it's sort of annoying to have to log in (through the "register" link), then have to click on a video, then click on the user link that appears in the top bar.
Contrary opinion: remove front-page privileges from everyone and don't grant new ones to anybody. They only serve to introduce crappy submissions, dupes, and repetitive comment arguments about hopper swiping. There's no real reason for any video not to be vetted by the hopper. If it's good, it'll get through. It will also encourage hopper vetting by all users, which reinforces the hopper's gateway function.

|Drunken football fan is sad her team lost|
I had my lady friend listen to this and she was able to understand it all.
The girl is sad because her friend made her wear sparkles on her finger polish even though the girl knew that she shouldn't because that wasn't her lucky ensemble and then the packers lost because she jinxed them and now they can't win the super bowl. She wore all the right other stuff, but because her friend suggested the sparkles, which she took against her better judgment, the team lost. So she's to blame and she is poorly disposed of this fact.
