There are many great Geeklist, forums etc on various subjects, and even great lists proclaiming the greatness of other lists. And for every great list there is also a comment about how this has been said before. However all of these submissions eventually fade away and get replaced by something more topical or fresh.
I propose that a section is created for popular or usefull topics. This would be particulalry useful for newbies. The section could be quite general ie the 5 most usefull links or it could be more specific; the 5 top links about image modding and the 5 top links for creating GeekLists, etc.
The top 5 could be based on the number of thumbs, but this might mean older links get biased, or maybe its a mod/vote to get a link sumbitted to the top 5.
