I've glanced over the site and this forum and I'm a little unclear on the subject of the Featured Listing and Featured Update on the main page.
Out of curiosity, what determines what makes an update or listing 'featured'? I've seen listings with ratings as low as two stars get featured, so it doesn't necessarily seem to be the most popular stories going up.
I'm suspicious the featured update bit is derived from RSS feeds (and added my RSS feed to my submission), but I'm especially curious about the featured listing. I'm not really going out of my way to advertise my story, I'm really majorly hugely thankful for the readers & the feedback this site provides, and I'm planning on getting into reviews in the new year. I'm just wondering how this (prominent) part of Webfictionguide works, before I get underway, both for potential exposure for my story and for worthy stories I happen to review.
(Hoping the featured update/listing requirement isn't "don't ask about the featured update/listing", haha)
