Are Instructables advertisments random ? Answered

I always thought it would be awesome to see one of my Intructables  at the home page. Are these chosen by ratings or added by the creators ?

If you look on the main instrucables, there is a banner that says "Featured". That means that someone on the staff or the robot or a select few volunteers has picked them as very noteworthy. Once your inst. gets noticed like this it might show up on the home page or in the newsletter. Getting featured really increases its exposure and the number of views goes up dramatically.

You can increase your chances of being featured by making an interesting inst. that is well documented, well photographed.  Proper grammar goes a long way.  Uniqueness helps, but if you recreate and existing inst. and really do a better job it could be featured.

Look at some of the featured inst. and use them as examples of quality.
