    Heyo, We're Back!!

    Good morning/evening/afternoon, all of my wonderful ladies and gentlecolts!! In the spirit of feeding my large ego I have come to share with you all what you probably all know; and that's that I have made the front page once more. I can't tell all of you how much of an accomplishment this really is to me. Funnily enough it is only a week short of the last time I made it there with Blood Red as

    Made It From the Bottom Now We're Here

    Holy f***ing shit everybody, you've probably already noticed but my latest story Blood Red As Apples made it to the featured wheel!!! That story pushed me (as of this blog post) right to the edge of 100 Stalkers as well. Ever since I started my first story I've only dreamed about getting on the featured wheel and let me tell ya when I saw it I nearly cried (and then nearly vomited) from

Made It From the Bottom Now We're Here · 2:36am Jun 23rd, 2013

Holy f***ing shit everybody, you've probably already noticed but my latest story Blood Red As Apples made it to the featured wheel!!! That story pushed me (as of this blog post) right to the edge of 100 Stalkers as well. Ever since I started my first story I've only dreamed about getting on the featured wheel and let me tell ya when I saw it I nearly cried (and then nearly vomited) from happiness. Thank you all my wonderful watchers for bringing me here, it may not be a huge accomplishment in the real world but too me it means so much.

Thank you all so much!! :')

The Featured box? No idea at all. :derpyderp2:

I think it's a automatic program that goes by how many likes you have compared to dislikes.

That's my assumption though. So if you get like, 50 likes and no dislikes you can get in.

1161930 That box at the top of the home page that scrolls through about 10 popular fics

1163131 That's pretty demanding but I'm gonna give it my best shot

1164289 That IS the Featured box. :facehoof:

Well, seeing as it's the first thing people see upon entering the site, it's definitely a prestigious position to hold. I agree that there's a good chance its based on Likes, but it's also possible you have to pay to get on it. Think about it, this is a non-profit site, and while I'm certain there are bronies out there perfectly willing to pay out-of-pocket for something like this, having such a thing as that Featured Box would be a good way to inspire others to help out with the expenses. If I were you, I'd get it straight from the horse's mouth (ah, pony puns:pinkiecrazy:). Anyway, good luck Alex! I'd love to see Hearts Brought Closer up there one day. - CRGGL

Pretty sure it's to do with how much "heat" a story has.

From what I've read, certain actions (presumably things like views, likes, faves etc) add heat to a story, which gradually falls off over time. The ones in the top stories box, same as the featured box, are the stories that currently have the highest heat.

What matters is generating a lot of heat in a short time. For example, a story with 50 likes in an hour may have more heat that a story with 500 likes gained over a year.
