What gives with the FEATURED column? Answered

It's coming up with stuff that's 3 or more years ago! Like this one from 2006!

Are the new ideas so bad that they're stuffing old (and tired) 'ibles in there now?

As kelsey said it seems to be a glitch but older 'ibles may be featured at times, like when contests come up some awesome projects from the past might be up on the feature board as inspiration...

For the past several weeks, there have been some weird glitches with the database servers. Not just featured, but RECENT have been showing up with very old I'bles. It seems to be intermittent -- wait a minute or so, and try reloading or refreshing your Web browser.

Yeah, sometimes it's a slow news day but you gotta realize that new visitors do not know of some awesome instructables from the past so it will get featured. The depth of projects here is pretty impressive and projects will get featured for relevance to the current audience or maybe a contest. A good featured instructable will draw your interest and hopefully get you to explore pages to check out more stuff.

Featured instructables are ones that the staff think are good, some great instructables are very old so the staff feels like they should give it some attention again because most people look at the newer instructables and ignore the old ones. This way the old ones are not totally forgotten.
