God, you all irritate me, i hate this world so much, i can't wait to change it and star anew.

This is all meta stuff, you are confused about what is wrong. It is ok to let people say what they want about the save. If they don't talk about the save in the comments that just means they don't have anything to say about it... The FP is just a front page and anything more refined would need different categories added and a lot of work, so maybe think about creating a forum or something akin to a subreddit to create the kind of FP you want.
Should FP be a better indication of quality? Yeah, probably, but at the end of the day, who sets those rules as to what's good and what's trash? Everyone here has a different oppinion. Seeing as this save has around 140 upvotes vs. 40 downvotes, I think the majority of people like this save and think it has a place on FP, but the only reason it's here is because a handful of people saw it at the right time. I'm not saying that the FP formula is good, I'm just saying that's how it works.
"chalking down FP to 'well, people just voted, therefore FP'" is literally how FP works. Votes + quickness = FP. That's it. It isn't the best and brightest of TPT, it's just what is popular at the exact given moment something is published. At best, it's a snapshot of a timeperiod worth 5 minuets. Should the motive for making a save be because I can or because this will get me imaginary internet points from absolute strangers?
I'd say a good percent of saves on FP have comment sections no longer discussing the actual save. I'm too lazy to check, but of these 7 pages, I'm guessing 6 and a half of them are not about the actual save. We've killed the comments. This is no longer a space to talk about the actual save or provide advice or constructive criticism, this is some weird debate club meeting.
Telling me how FP is supposed to work in the way you did is simply just to epxlain how it works on paper, not how it FULLY works in reality. One would HAVE to take into account motive for making things not just making things, but why the thing was voted onto FP anyways. The smart aleck reason would be "well, obviously it's because a bunch of people wanted there..." Yeah, no sht. But the comment section is often used for people to explain why they've voted it on.
Not everybody HAS to make really "good" stuff all the time, but chalking down FP to "well, people just voted, therefore FP" would defeat the purpose of having a front page. Obviously everbody knows what the base purpose of a Front Page is -- to showcase what's popular among the general community (that should really go without saying!) The problem is that there will always be complications when taking into account how things REALLY work in real life.
