Every SE site has a tour page. This page exhibits various actual Q&A from the site.

On Lifehacks.SE, the tour uses one of my questions. Was this manually selected by somebody on the SE Community Team, or automatically?


They are selected automatically, although the selection can be overridden by moderators - once a question becomes eligible to be on the tour page, the site moderators can select it.

The criteria (beyond score - ensuring it is a good question) are mostly about how it will display on the tour page - things like limited set of/no HTML elements and how short it and some of the answers are.

Your question met all the criteria and was selected automatically.

  • Maybe worth merging this question with the dupe to have both answers in the same place? Both look good. :) – Shadow The Burning Wizard Dec 11 '14 at 19:39
