Nominating Instructables to be "Featured" Answered

I just joined the instructables community a couple days ago. I'm not exactly new and knows how the featuring process workds. I've been poking around the site and there are some unfeatured instructables that I feel like were missed. I decided unfeatured instructables should have a chance to get recognition too! I created this forum topic for people to nominate instructables that they feel like should be featured. Anyone can suggest something. I might even create a group to "feature" some of these nominated ones. Suggest away!

Update: Click here to join the group and support your favorite instructables.

I have never even heard of the volunteers group since I've joined. I will definitely have to check that out.

Thanks for showing interest in this group. To nominate instructables, you will first need to join the group. Then you can PM me with your nomination. Also you can not nominate your own instructable in order to make the process a bit more fair. I hope you join!

See my post of Sep 22 above, and remember to include a link, plus a few reasons why it should be featured.

Featured is "what we really like, when we see it (to feature it)"
You'll be right, but this aspiration probably won't materialse because the admin' cost can't be justified.

Actually, Lemonie, some of the FT members do go out of their way to Feature old, overlooked I'bles. I think the idea of (within reason!) letting FT members know that you've seen something that is Feature-worthy is great. The Team doesn't have to accept those suggestions, but it can help to get them.

"what we really like, when we see it (to feature it)"
Yes I agree, but think they might be "bothered" enough already.  If you think about this happening, someone will be bombarded by nominations (from e.g. children)

I don't mind if that means making someone happy by having their instructable recognized by their peers. This doesn't require any help from the staff (unless they want to :) so I personally would like to see this through.

Nothing is preventing you from PM-ing staff, go for it. Carley perhaps?

Thank you! And yes that is completely what I was going for. People can express their own opinions of a good instructable and people can get recognized. It's a win win situation!

Well I'm not trying to change anyone's opinions. This is a way to recognize good quality instructables.

It is, but it's a site (staff) thing, they only have so much time in a day.
The rating is something we can use.

Well, the staff doesn't even have to look at my group or the instructables that people nominate. It's just an option and maybe it will even help the staff save some time. :)

That's a really good idea. I do agree that some are missed periodically.

.  Great idea. If an iBle gets caught in the filters on a weekend it may fall off the first page of lists before it goes public. This can cause it to be missed by a lot of people, including those on the Feature Team.
.  Your idea can be a good way to bring overlooked iBles to the attention of Robot and his minions.

Yes I noticed that that happens on the weekends a lot. Thanks for the support!
