I think the title says it all. Why are questions not on the featured questions page?

Ps. I know they are two seperate things but it makes for very poor UX to use the same term for two concepts.

  • This is MSE-specific, as this is the sole site where you can both tag questions as featured and "feature" them with bounties. On most sites, you can only do one thing or the other: bounties can only be issued on main sites, while questions can only be tagged as featured on meta sites. – Sonic the Reinstate Monica-hog Aug 2 at 17:31

    We've mostly renamed the featured tab to bounties, so... it won't last much longer. – Catija Aug 2 at 17:34

This is a quirk specific to this meta site, Meta Stack Exchange, since it's the only place where you can have both questions tagged "featured" and you can feature a question by placing a bounty on it.

The dual terminology is confusing nonetheless, so we've renamed the featured tab to bounties, so the issue is . As announced in The "Featured" tab is now "Bountied"
