Featured Percentage Answered

Does the Featured Percentage include the No. of Featured Instructables+No. of Featured Collections?

I have 11 Published Instructables. 9 out of 11 have been featured. I also have 2 collections; both of which have been featured.
But the Featured percentage on profile is only 69% when it should be 80+%.

Is this is a bug or are my calculations incorrect?

There are other things that get featured like answers and reviews, have any of the questions you answered been featured.

How do you know if your answers are featured?

When a person asks a question and you answer it, they can mark it three ways.

If they mark it "Best Answer", you get a notice by Email.

If they mark it "Feature Comment" you get a notice by Email.

If they "Flag" your comment, Instructables gets an Email.

Now if you have notices turned off or limited in your "Settings" you may not be notified.

Down side people are lazy about marking "Best Answer" let alone "Feature Comment"

thank you that answers my question. I don't see a way to mark answers though. Perhaps I am not understanding where this takes place. Is it just on the forums or on individual Instructables?

The author of the question in answers and the subject in forums is the only one that can do it.

Oh no that wasn't for you, that was for everyone.

I often wonder why when someone asks a question, they never mark best answer or featured.

I have come to 3 conclusions:

1. Don't know they can or how.

2. Don't care or appreciate the effort.

3. Did not get the answer they needed, or it did not solve their problem.

I have asked 10 questions and marked 6 best answer 3 of the 4 unmarked just weren't answered and the forth was to inform the other authors in the Instructables books they can add the Instructable books to their writers portfolio.

I am a published author outside Instructables.

Of forums topics 10 again 5 had no replies, one had only 1 reply, and the other 4 I am still waiting.

I hope that it's they just don't know rather than not caring.

I hate seeing posts with no response. I try to respond where I can with my limited knowledge.

I was looking at your Instructables while waiting for a Rx to be filled. I've got my eye on a little cedar sapling in my yard. I want to make a bonsai out of it.

I wasn't sure if it was a bug or just something I'm missing, hence I placed it in the forums.
