Featured stories are completely automated. They are calculated on a mix of a few things. The number of likes a story has received, the proportion of likes to dislikes, the total number of ratings, how frequently it's being viewed and the time since it was approved are all factored into the equation.

The featured box differs depending on whether you have view mature enabled. Effectively there are 2 sets of stories.

Featured box slots

The featured box is split into 2 sections:

  • Slots 1-7 - Recent stories that are 'hot'
  • Slots 8-10 -Recently updated stories that are well rated
