Should Adrian's guide be featured? Answered

I just added Adrian's Guide to Robot Projects to the Robot group. Hopefully Robot will notice and be suitably impressed :-)

Ummmm...It's been pointed out that this was slightly inappropriate (the featurer has suggested that he might not have done so if he saw this topic first). Should I delete it?

. I don't think I would go as far as calling it inappropriate, but, IMNSHO, it is counter-productive to try to turn Featuring into a popularity* contest.
. A better approach might be to PM a member of the Feature Team, saying something like: "So-and-so just posted a GREAT ible <link>. I think it's Feature-worthy (you may want to list a few reasons why you think it is). Check it out."

  • Not that "will this be popular" shouldn't be a consideration when Featuring

I fully agree -- Featuring shouldn't be about popularity. It should be about completeness, appropriateness, composition and skill. I wasn't trying to change that. It'd be cool if the staff were to support a "Feature Team" group e-mail (sort of like the "flag" system) for that purpose.

. Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but the idea of ~~SPAMming~~ mass-mailing the FT seems like an open invitation to abuse. I feel confident that any member of the FT will pay attention if kelseymh (or any other respected Ibles member) PMs them with a suggestion. They may not agree with you, but they will give it due consideration. ;) . Who's on the Feature Team is no big secret, but most members seem to desire a low profile.

Well, some of those on the Feature Team is no big secret, but then, there are those of us that
#1: either can't remember long enough to form a list in their heads,
or
#2: just aren't in the loop enough to know ;-)

I think I understand why someone might say that, but I don't personally have a problem with this thread (except that it makes me jealous j/k). :-)

You should thank killerjackalope :-) It looks to me like he was doing the featuring (and writing his comment), at the same time I was creating this post.

NO-it offended me horribly. It was poorly written and left out all the good projects. Shame on her. :P
