#2 and also in the /find-new/
I think #2 is really important because at the moment thats where the best place is to catch members attention about whats going on with the forum. And at the moment i never see who rates photos. In fact i think only today.

Being in the find-new area would "force" members to see new ratings and it would also bring traffic into the media gallery.
