Minor bug: Issues of featured/popular tags Answered

Hiya, I've had a couple of instructables 'featured' that don't have the featured bit on the corner such as my concrete rhubarb leaf: https://www.instructables.com/id/Ornamental-paving-slabs/ which I got an email saying 'watch the front page' but it never appeared and still didn't get the flashing.  Was this a mistake email sent out?

Similarly today got a 'your instructable is popular' but it's not updated to show 'popular' - it's https://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Pioneering-Build-a-Monkey-Bridge-from-woo/

Any ideas?

You sure it wasn't featured in outdoors or whatever category or channel it was in?

You only get a tag when featured on the front page. My muffin 'ible was featured in camping, but it didn't get a tag.

Hi! Same Issue here.... Received the following E-mail but never showed on the home page or received the featured Tag. It shows up in the featured tab of the Electronics category but it does not indicate it was featured anywhere else. Your Instructable "USB Cord Shortening" was just featured by one of our editors! Being featured means we think you are awesome. Keep up the great work! Look for your featured Instructable, within the next 30 minutes, here: https://www.instructables.com/technology/electronics/?sort=FEATURED Eric Founder and CEO of Instructables

Thanks for your reply... I saw it was featured in the channel but I did not realize there was a different way to be featured. I had only seen featured ibles show up on the home page. Question: Is being "featured" on a channel treated differently than the other "home page featured"; in particular with respect to receiving a featured corner flag on the instructable icon and does it count towards the "% Featured" rating for an author in the recently added stats hover box? Just wondering.

I don't think it counts towards your feature total, I think it counts only full featured ones that show up on the homepage. I do believe you get a feature banner though, at least the newer ones seem to get them.

The paving slab instructable was featured in the channel and category so it doesn't show up on the homepage but it does in the category page. I'm not sure about the popular one, I've had that too.
