Every single Instructable is verified by an editor to be on Homepage/Featured? Answered

I'm just wondering if every single Instructable is viewed by one of the editors, or an algorith/program chooses the Featured Intsructables or both? I think that real people are choosing them, but someone made me unsure about that. So when an Instructable gets featured we get an e-mail that "one of our editors thought that you are awesome", so I think that editors are choosing them, but do they check all recent Instructables? Or have they any software help?

We do in fact look at every new instructable posted.

There are dozens of people who can feature things though, both paid staff and regular users that have been given the power to feature things.
