Featured ....... Then not featured

Hello, I submitted an instructable today and I was happy to see it be "Featured" but then I checked it out about an hour later then just to find out that the "featured" icon is gone and my instructable isn't featured anymore. What gives? https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Spanker/

Featured?

I dont want to be rude or anything, but I was wondering if I could get featured, I mean my instructable matches all the requirements(Pictures,Spelling/Grammer, Good Documentation) , and even hackaday/kipkay on youtube featured my idea . Here it is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Co-Axial-Pneumatic-BB-Gun/ Here is my Hackaday Feature: http://hackaday.com/2013/03/06/this-maglite-is-a-bb-gun/ And here is what kipkay did with my idea, he gave me a shoutout in the description: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJq5w7gVdtM

Featuring Guidelines

Having your Instructable featured means you are an excellent author, and you're providing some of the best content on the site. We want everyone to see what you've made! When we feature your Instructable, it's our way of saying "You are awesome, and we love you!"So what does it take to get your Instructable featured? Read on, my friend, you have come to the right place! You can also check out this handy Instructable that will walk you through posting a Feature-Worthy Instructable. There are currently two tiers of featuring we use to promote great content and reward our awesome authors: Feature: Your Instructable will appear in the Featured Feed, and you'll receive a free pro membership which can be applied to your own account or given as a gift to another member! Homepage Feature: Your Instructable will appear in the Featured Feed, as well as on the homepage, and you'll receive a free pro membership which can be applied to your own account or given as a gift to another member.For an Instructable to be featured, the main criteria we look for are excellent documentation and reproducibility. These break down into the following points: The title fits and explains the project. The introduction should state what the project is, and the reason or motivation behind it. All photos should be original, bright, clear, and in-focus. Projects should be broken into enough steps to be easy to follow, with sufficient photos and explanatory text to allow the reader to understand the process. Grammar and spelling should be good enough so as to not be distracting. Projects should be complete and contain all the information needed so others could reasonably duplicate the project (if the reader were to have the necessary skills and access to similar tools and materials.) Lists should be included of parts/materials/ingredients/tools used, with links to sources as needed, as well as links to references. Whenever possible, the inclusion of downloadable files, PDF patterns, and so forth is desirable. Video content (youtube videos, etc.) must be accompanied by photos and written step-by-step instructions, as outlined in the points above. For a Homepage Feature, here are some additional things we look for: Overall stellar documentation Beautiful cover images Content that is highly reproducible and has that “wow, awesome!” factor Note that high levels of ingenuity, creativity, innovation, and/or utility in a project will often compensate for various areas of weaknesses in documentation, so these criteria should be viewed as guidelines and not necessarily hard-fast rules. What about business-related content from bloggers, etsy-ers, youtubers, kickstarters, and so forth?Can that type of content be featured? Absolutely! Any Instructable that meets the criteria as outlined above and contains real how-to instructional content can be featured. If you are in this camp, it's an excellent practice to keep your ulterior motives relatively subtle. For example, some of our best authors are also bloggers and etsy-ers, and many of these authors simply include a single link to their site or store in the last step of their Instructables. This is a perfect approach that allows their projects to get as much attention as possible on the site, but also plug their commercial interests in a way that is not overbearing or spammy. Being overbearing or spammy is the quickest way to NOT being featured. Want your project featured? Sometimes it's hard to see where your project could use some enhancements! Luckily, we have some great authors that will review your project and give you feedback at the volunteer-run Clinic. Do you get featured a lot? Why not spend a little time in the Clinic and help others get to your level! :)

Featured Percentage

Does the Featured Percentage include the No. of Featured Instructables+No. of Featured Collections? I have 11 Published Instructables. 9 out of 11 have been featured. I also have 2 collections; both of which have been featured. But the Featured percentage on profile is only 69% when it should be 80+%. Is this is a bug or are my calculations incorrect?

Featured or not featured?

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...

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.

Featured but not Featured?

   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.

Featured advertisements?!?

Here's something I haven't seen before:  the "pro-only" ad for Adafruit's discounts has a Featured banner in the upper right corner!  Even the Instructables Card Game ad doesn't have that banner.  Is this something new for "blessed" in-house ads?  Or a bug?  Or what?

New Features?

Is there going to be a blog post documenting the new features? I like the new interface, but it will take a few days to get used to. There are a few bugs here and there. Like when I click Tool Tips Group, I get to a page where there are no projects. Also, post counts seem to be a little out of whack. Each visit seems to raise it by 10.

I recently got featured, and the e-mail says it takes up to 30 mins to show the banner. It's been like, a day and a half. And don''t you get 3 months Pro membership? I wasn't offered. or at least yet. Thanks in advance! And don't you hate it when people don't choose a 'Best Answer'??

Lovin' the site, but would like to see one small feature. Could we add an RSS feed to the comments page under the You link? I'd like to keep track of what, if anything, people are saying about what I'm saying. It would make it much easier to do if we could get an rss feed for that page. Thanks!

New Features!

We've just released a new version of the site with some noticable changes. The biggest are:new header layout with customization optionsWe moved the main menu items up nearer the top to make room for the category exploration tabs in the light orange bar. In the top right, for logged-in members, you'll see a CUSTOMIZE link. Behind that lies the ability to select up to five of your personal favorite links to create your own shortcut menu.Get notified of your favorite members' activityOn member pages, and on the author info boxes, you'll see a SUBSCRIBE button. Clicking that marks that member as someone you're interested in, and any time they publish or update something, you'll get an email. You can configure how often you get these emails in your You pages - choose Email Alerts. And change your subscriptions there too - choose Subscriptions.You'll be able to figure these out pretty easily so I won't go into too much detail. There are a couple smaller things too that I'll let you work out on your own.Got bugs? Let us know .

Every so often. Well, more than "every so often", projects from this site are featured on the Makezine site.This is, without doubt, a good thing, but wouldn't it be nice if the authors of featured projects were informed, in the same way as they are informed when their project is featured on this site?

I'm not sure it is intentional, but I feel that the Instructables crew does a great job of featuring members' first instructables (given they meet a certain standard).

Featured on Hompage but not category?

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 :)

Nominating Instructables to be "Featured"

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.
