Featured Instructable Not Showing Up? Answered

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).

I just looked, and it is featured at "Cetegory" level.

This is the middle level of featuring (the one below is "Channel"), and not, unfortunately, high enough to get you the "editors' picks" lists.

Hi Kiteman,

My recent 'ible https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-bike-worm-racer/ has a 'featured' banner. But there was no email to me about it and it doesn't seem featured anywhere (not on homepage, outside, or bikes).

A few weeks ago I got an email saying https://www.instructables.com/id/Perfect-thin-crust-pizza-in-7-minutes-cook-time/ was featured to the homepage, which it wasn't. I figured it was glitch related to it being published in an eBook.

Wondering if you had any insight on this. thanks!

Thanks Kiteman!

What channel do you see it under? Its not featured in the bike channel https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-outside/channel-bikes/
although it shows up under 'recent' in the bike channel, becuase that's where I put it when I published it.

It's still in Outside>Bikes.

Unfortunately, anything below a full feature doesn't get any extra exposure for your work.

This is something I have talked about here.

Thank you, Kiteman. A great help, as always. As for not making "editor's picks," that stinks :( Better luck next time, right? :)
