When I first saw the WEEKLY FEATURES panel, I thought well, great idea, promoting the last week’s “special” items here instead of the blog. But now I saw that the files are randomly chosen, new, old it doesn’t really matter, they’re all stuffed in there. Wouldn’t it be better if in the weekly features section would appear the files from flashden files of the week? Especially because a lot of good files aren’t getting enough exposure and all… Just a thought.

I dont really follow you, you mean that only the new files can get in the weekly section?

The weekly features is the equivalent of the old featured files. Which means they are selected by the site’s admin every week. I am very sure these are not random at all.

I have noticed on Graphic River that that the items on the weekly features panel haven’t changed since the redesign (which is definitely more than a week). So it doesn’t look much use to me. The 4 files that are currently shown on load up are set to get loads of exposure without other files getting a look in.

I actually think if the weekly features panel was updating properly it would be a good tool for exposing older files. The newest and most popular files get enough exposure already. I think a few old files thrown in there might provide a bit of unexpected inspiration for people – but only if it updates regularly…

They are not random at all. They show the last 4 featured item. So if you are chosen for the weekly featured , you have 1 month a AWESOME visibility :)

Like Jeffrey said , make awesome item and you will have 1 month of visibility :)

Hey everyone. Just to clarify, they aren’t randomly chosen. Each week, we select a new featured author and file to promote.
