I saw the featured site on Stack Exchange home page.

How is the featured site being decided? Is there any formula or is it just an editor's pick? Can a site be repeated even before any site is featured?

It is a random selection from the list of graduated sites.

So, conceivably, the same site could feature a couple of days in a row.

    Totally random, no weight whatsoever? Quite frustrating IMO! :-) Jul 4, 2014 at 22:53
