Front Page Feature Never Showed Up Answered

I got an email stating that my latest instructable was featured on the front page, but I never saw it there. Did anyone else? I got the email around 5:30 am, does that mean it was featured for a bit in the early morning and then disappeared into the tech category? Is there a significant delay between the time something is chosen to be featured and the time it appears on the front page?




The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

It sucks -- your awesome project basically just got lost behind several things that people featured late yesterday or this morning, including one that's a pretty experiment, but an utter waste of the physics :-(

One issue is that Featured I'bles are presented in the order in which they are featured, not in the order published. This is a reasonable approach, otherwise, something that didn't pick up the feature flag until it was a week or more along would never show up on the front page.

The other issue is that, maybe because of contests running, there seem to be a lot more Tech I'bles (and more really good ones) this week.
