Featured but not Featured? Answered

   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.

Your Instructable was featured at Channel level (in this case, Photography).

There is currently a bug (okay, an unimplemented feature), that Category and Channel features don't get the proper banner applied on your profile page.  It is on the Staff's "to do" list, but not as high as some other things.

Ahh... That makes since. I guess the only real bug is it not showing up on my profile. Thanks for the clarification.

. . . but in addition to that, once upon a time the author could see who had featured their 'ible but that ability seems to have disappeared.  Is this another one on the todo list?

You don't see it?  I just checked one of my own Featured, and it's there, right under the "license" indicator in the INFO box.  Oh, wait...I may have additional access which you don't.

Could you do a screen shot of the INFO box on your NiftyBender Deluxe?  If the "Featured by" isn't there, it'd be good to repost this subthread as a new bug report.

.  Your iBle was featured in channel on Jun 2, 2010. IIRC, changing the notification e-mails is on Robot's todo list.

 Seems like there may be a new  thing being featured in the "channel" or category?  If you go to the main menu/homepage menu, click on technology, more - to find photography...your ible is featured in the list.

You will need to hear the official answer on how things should work but usually featuring goes on the homepage.
