Featured ....... Then not featured

Hello, I submitted an instructable today and I was happy to see it be "Featured" but then I checked it out about an hour later then just to find out that the "featured" icon is gone and my instructable isn't featured anymore. What gives? https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Spanker/

Where is my instructable "featured"?

I'm pleasantly surprised to see that one of my instructables has a "featured" tag on it. But what does that mean? Where is it featured? I can't find any featured list for it to be on.

What helps an instructable get featured?

I created my first instructable a week back which is a binary clock: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cwik-Clock-v10-An-Arduino-Binary-Clock/ I was hoping to get it featured as I thought it added on to the regular binary clock formula (using potentiometers, and analog meter, focusing on accuracy, etc.). Today I saw a binary clock get featured (this one https://www.instructables.com/id/Connect-4-Binary-Clock/ ) which actually uses my code (which I put that code in public domain), and only has a subset of the features mine does. I'm trying not to be a bit jealous here :P. For the future, what helps an instructable be featured? Thanks, Dennis

Featured or not featured?

I've recently published an instructable. Three hours ago, I've received an email that says my project was marked as featured, even if it isn't on featured pages. It also doesn't have the little star on the upper right corner... Maybe the email I received is a bug...

Featured instructable never made the main page?

Do all featured instructables go on the main page? usually, when I get a feature, It is featured right away, and for the next day or so, I see it on the main page. I posted a cutting board a couple days ago that got featured about 24 hours later. The problem is that when it was featured it was too late to go on the main page... Is this common? I get a lot of views while on the main page...

Posted by SlickSqueegie 5 years ago

"Featured Banner" is now missing on the instructables.

The "Featured Banner" is missing when the instrucables are in a list like on the home page. Is that a new FEATURE or a BUG? Will it be coming back? What's the benefit of creating an instructable and getting it featured if the author is the only one who knows it's featured? And yes I know I complain a lot, but if I don't tell you what's wrong how will you know?

Posted by Re-design 7 years ago

List of "featured" on front page slightly different from those on Featured page.

It's a minor thing that may have to do with caching but I noticed that the list of features on the front page is missing an instructable that is shown on the "Show all Featured" page.  See the following screen shots of the front page and the Featured page.  The "USB Dog Identification" is not on the front page. This happened using Firefox and Chrome on Windows XP.

Why are featured/not featured items inconsistent?

I'm confused about which of my  instructables are really featured.  Two of three show up on my profile, and my rate is 66%.   But on the instructable pages all three show up as featured.  ???? And since I haven't found  where else to say it, yet,   Thanks for the Halloween card!

Featured but not Featured?

   I received an e-mail that said my 'ible had been featured, I checked the Featured page, but it never showed up. It has the feature banner on it, but only on the Recent page (2nd page). Neither does it show up under my "You" page. The link it gave me in the email has the feature banner, but it's only under the Photography section. This happened during my switch to Pro, perhaps that has something to do with it? I was working on the project before becoming Pro, then published it after I became Pro. I'm running FireFox 3.6.3 on Windows 7.

How can I get featured? Answered

I know that my project is not amazing, but I have seen much worse projects getting featured...Would it be possible to feature mine? If someone could do such a thing, that would really make my day. If someone would be so kind to tell me why mine would not be featured, that would also be appreciated. I also realize that not all good projects can be featured, and that mine may not seem as great to other people, but... Thanks! Adam

Please consider featuring this Instructable. In my mind it demonstrates everything good about Instructables. It is not one of mine. I do not know the author. I simply believe it is excellently done. Thank you. Phil B

Featured advertisements?!?

Here's something I haven't seen before:  the "pro-only" ad for Adafruit's discounts has a Featured banner in the upper right corner!  Even the Instructables Card Game ad doesn't have that banner.  Is this something new for "blessed" in-house ads?  Or a bug?  Or what?

Why is the "Featured" Filter Automatically on when I Explore Instructables?

I really don't like it when I'm just looking at instructables and I realize I'm not seeing all of them because the "Featured" filter is on.  For example, I click on the "Explore" button, then I click "Technology", then, I see that the only types of instructables I've been seeing are featured.

Featured Instructable Not Showing Up?

I posted "Nutella Butterfingers" on March 13, 2011. It wasn't featured then, but I checked my account yesterday and the featured banner magically appeared. However, I can't find it under "editor's picks" in the food category or candy channel. I probably overlooked something but any ideas of where it might be (it can still be found under "recent" though).

Instructable was featured but never appeared on the home page

I published an instructable yesterday (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-fix-earbuds-that-have-lost-their-rubber/) and received an email saying that it had been featured. It has the little "featured!" Banner over the icon, too. But it never appeared on the home page. I checked "explore --> featured", and found five or so instructables that were featured around the time mine was that never appeared on the home page, either.  I don't know if is is an actual bug, or if things are just done differently now. I just thought I would mention it. :p

My 2cts on the new Featured Instructable system

Hello everyone, it was suggested that I give my thoughts on the current (new) system when an Instructable is Featured. Recently one of my Instructables was Featured (have a look at my Trebuchet I'ble). I received the standard 'We think your awesome' email... and then... nothing I waited for a snazzy little banner proclaiming to the world that I was featured... I also waited to see my Ible on the front page... After 24 hours I got worried and posted a bug report, where the new feature was explained to me Where I have the problem is this new three teired system hasn't REALLY been explained in an email or a site update memo.. Perhaps It would be useful to have an opt-in site update email which explains the current features/updates of the website? Another problem is the email I received says this: Hi! Your Instructable "Scout Project: How to build a Trebuchet" was just featured by one of our editors! Being featured means we think you are awesome. Keep up the great work! Look for your featured Instructable, within the next 30 minutes, here: https://www.instructables.com/play/?show= FEATURED https://www.instructables.com/play/siege-engines/?show=FEATURED Eric The old style email says: Hi! Your Instructable "How to make: Norbert the Cuddly Squid" was just featured by one of our editors! Look for it on the Instructables homepage within the next 30 minutes. Being featured means we think you are awesome. Keep up the great work! https://www.instructables.com/ -Eric There isn't very much difference, and when you are unaware of the change, it is a little confusing... maybe the standardised email needs a little tweaking for the new Featured Instructable system? Thanks alot Jay
