I've recently published an instructable. Three hours ago, I've received an email that says my project was marked as featured, even if it isn't on featured pages. It also doesn't have the little star on the upper right corner... Maybe the email I received is a bug...

When a "Step by step" Instructable become featured , you see a flag in right part of the steps that means this instructable is featured . But when a "Video" or "Photos" instructable become featured , you can't find out this is featured or not . I know you can see featured star in "editors' picks" page or author profile , but when you open that instructable do you see any thing that say this instructable is featured ? The "Videos" and "Photos" instructables need a change to show they are featured or they aren't . For example instructables can show featured flag in a corner of picture or video .

Is this a feature or a bug? On member pages, there used to be featured banners. Now there are not. I really liked to see which instructables got featured, not just a percentage. My Hat and Contest instructables were featured. FF 3.6.6 w/ Windows 7 Home Premium. Thanks!

After receiving two "your Instructable has been featured" emails this morning, the 'ible in question https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-easily-remove-vinyl-tiles/ doesn't have the "Featured" corner-banner, and my "Featured" stat is still at 75%. Was the "Featured" congrat sent erroneously? Has the site just not updated yet? Thanks for your time.

Do all featured instructables go on the main page? usually, when I get a feature, It is featured right away, and for the next day or so, I see it on the main page. I posted a cutting board a couple days ago that got featured about 24 hours later. The problem is that when it was featured it was too late to go on the main page... Is this common? I get a lot of views while on the main page...

It's a minor thing that may have to do with caching but I noticed that the list of features on the front page is missing an instructable that is shown on the "Show all Featured" page. See the following screen shots of the front page and the Featured page. The "USB Dog Identification" is not on the front page. This happened using Firefox and Chrome on Windows XP.

The "Featured Banner" is missing when the instrucables are in a list like on the home page. Is that a new FEATURE or a BUG? Will it be coming back? What's the benefit of creating an instructable and getting it featured if the author is the only one who knows it's featured? And yes I know I complain a lot, but if I don't tell you what's wrong how will you know?

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.

Instructables is great. I frequently view Featured entries. However, I have reviewed the criteria in a number of staff posts regarding what gets a members Instructable featured, I think the idea is good but the implementation is flawed. Some of the featured Instructables might meet those criteria but the Instructable itself may not be worthy, one recently had to be removed by staff for plagiarism after it was featured! The breech of Instructables Guidlines was clearly indicated in comments prior to the featuring. Instructables, please remember that just because an Instructable gets lots of views or comments, these may be for all the wrong reasons and each Featured Instructable and its comments should be reviewed before featuring. Thanks, and I really do think Instructables makes the world a better place :-)

I'm confused about which of my instructables are really featured. Two of three show up on my profile, and my rate is 66%. But on the instructable pages all three show up as featured. ???? And since I haven't found where else to say it, yet, Thanks for the Halloween card!

Do featured posts on the homepage vary from account to account? I noticed this was the case when I logged into my secondary account, the featured posts on the homepage were completely different from the ones that show up when I log in with my usual account.

I have a 31% featured rating. I have been working very hard on my published Instructables so my featured rating will raise. I published an Instructables that I worked several days on and it did not get featured. I was a little surprised because I know the content is good. My question is this: Is there a way to unpublish it and re-work it and re-publish it and see if it gets featured then? If I can't do that, how much will it change my featured rating if I delete the entire Instructable and start from scratch? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The email I received today shows links, but the links do not connect. The link for the 'Featured' project works.

I tried to use the new "feature comment" checkbox out of curiosity on Jake's comment here, which popped up a yellow error box saying 400 -- QUESTION objects are not sticky-able By the sounds of it this feature is a few hours old so I guess the kinks are still being worked out. Is there some documentation on what the feature actually does? I gather it pins a comment to the top of the list of comments and disables replies to that comment...?

I was just curious if the Makerspace contest is effecting the time it takes to get your 'ible featured? And if so, by how many days? For example, my last featured 'ible wasn't featured for a few days after posting (and I didn't post it over a weekend or holiday or anything). Usually, the featuring (if it happens) happens much sooner. But I was just thinking maybe the Makerspace contest is effecting the times because there are so many more instructables getting published right now (some of the prizes in the contest are for highest number of instructables published and highest number of featured 'ibles). Your thoughts? Has anyone else experienced this, too? Thanks!

I have 46 Instructables 4 Have been featured 46 / 4 X 100 = >8% About 8% of my 'Ibles Have been featured, Though it shows in the top right corner of my page that 5% have. Is it a bug, Or do I have something incorrect with my math?

I was recently on another computer and want to find one of my instructables to show my friend. She wanted to print it quickly so I didn't log in. When I tried to find it under the Technology category it wasn't under the featured instructable. We found it instead on the homepage (the third page of the recently featured instructables). Later at home I tried it on my computer (on Firefox) and encountered the same problem. Can an instructable be featured on the homepage but not the category page? I was sure it was featured in both. Some screen shots are included below. Thanks (and sorry for bothering :)

Currently - If I'm not logged in I get the Featured page with the rotating banner at the top. When I am logged in, I get the Top Picks/Feed page. Previously- I used to get the Featured page and banner when I was logged in or not. I would like to see the Featured page when I'm logged in. I can't find a setting or instruction on how to do this. Could someone please help? Thanks.
