Sometimes when I want to share something with you it fits into different forums and I tend to post it on one that is on the featured list, because I want some attention (otherwise I simply could keep it for me and no longer participate in link aggregation and only write/react to self posts)
But I realized I have no idea how the featured forums list is arranged. Is it static or in some way depended on the activity inside? If its static, I think its kinda questionable, but on the other hand I can imagine it is not easy to write an algorithm. So please don't read this post as a blame, but a question.
When it is possible to feature less actively forums by posting over there and do cross-posts on other related forums and it is not seen as spam by the community and the Raddle "mechanics" I would do it that way in the future.
