Regarding Featuring at various levels...
At the moment, a full feature for a project gets that project onto the front page as an "Editor's Pick", but all a feature at Category or Channel level earns an author is a small star on the project's thumbnail.
What I think should happen is...
- I look at the front page, I see the most recent top-level featured projects (as now)
- I click on a Category, say, Food, I see all the top-level food projects, plus all the Category-level featured projects.
- I click on a Channel, say, Sandwiches, I see all the top-level, Category-level and the Channel-level sandwiches.
The photo is irrelevant, I just don't like publishing topics with no image. It's the Angel of the North, with Conker-X sitting on the toes. I took it on the way home from the Newcastle Maker Faire.
