How to get your Instructable on the front page

I've seen the same Instructables on the front page way too many times. So in this topic we discuss what properties an Instructable should have in order to get on the front page. It probably should have: - Good spelling/Grammar - Accurate instructions - Plenty of photos - Good photo quality - A subject people will want to look at (I.E. dont expect "How to skin a pig" to be on the front page) - You must provide the graphic (Instructables will not make it for you; Make sure it has the right dimensions, choose a good photo, the right font, etc.) Can we get a site authority in here? :P

Except, now that the Instructables homepage has a new design, this isn't happening, is it?

That's what I was thinking. :/

Rather sad, isn't it?
Oh, I was just going to post that link here! I guess I'm five days too late. Well, since I already copied it, I might as well paste!

To be on the front page, you must make, as Eric always says, ==A REALLY AWESOME INSTRUCTABLE.==
And he's right.
Why wouldn't he feature an amazingly amazing awesome Instructable?
I once PMed him about becoming an intern, and he replied with "Make really amazing instructables!" And it's true-what would he have against awesome instructables!

Oh, I could totally see Christy do an "How to skin a pig" instructable. Perhaps with an image of a tasteful blood-dripping butchers knife on the front page. :-D
It makes perfect sense!
To get on the front page it has to be featured by the staff (or be in the "most popular & zeitgeist)...
