Hi Kian,

I think the best solution is to introduce a second ranking box, keeping 
the existing one as the "community picks" and a second one with "best 

Obviously Brands are selected by hand, much like the reference List on 
.com. Brands are generally not hard to choose, simply go by brand value 
(Milward Brown and Interbrand publish rankings annually) and/or share 
price/market value.

That would still require someone suitable to maintain that list. Within 
that list, the ranking should be chronologically, with last additions on 
top. On the bottom it could link to a "top brands"-listing page.

Care to sponsor pixelrund to do this, or ask them to do it yourself?

The community picks now show the average rating. It could be changed to 
the total sum of stars, which would also be worth considering.
