I just put EB's article back on the front page even though that's not my job. But I do like to see dynamism, and he did update it recently.

It might help the elves who do feature articles if members suggested articles to feature, especially older ones that never were featured or that have current relevance. Theoretically, the elves should do that digging themselves, but they do have their flaws despite being immortal.

I suppose we could have more elves handle the article portion of the frontpage. Technically it's not my job, but I can sneak some in too.

So like I said... could we please rotate the Featured Articles??? Do we vote or how can us mortals influence this feature? I mean we have been looking at the same articles forever... just like variety with so many choices... we don't see the same photo of the day, week... why the same featured articles...

It's been on the front page before but it should be reposted and maybe SP can help save the world from the use of the dreaded term "selfie". :D
