Currently there are three posts tagged “featured” on Meta.SE but only two appear in Featured on Meta. For example, on EL&U (English Language & Usage) we see "Thank you, Roberto Cartaino" and “Change in roles for Jon Ericson (leaving SE)” but not the slightly older featured post: “Thank you, Shog9”.
I am sure many users who were on holiday during the festive season will be still unaware that Shog9 is no longer working as a community manager on Stack Exchange.
- How many days did @Mithical's post thanking Shog9 for his support, work and dedication to SE appear in the announcement box?
- Why is the "Featured" limit fixed at two?
- In the future, would it be possible to have three announcements rotate for, let's say, three weeks?
Somewhat related, a feature request of mine proposing a drop-down menu
Can we have a drop-down menu for "Featured on Meta"?
can't see a focused request.maybe because it's not a FR to start off with? I wasn't aware that more than two posts can be tagged featured at the same time and it seems wrong that one post gets knocked off because a few hours later another post earned the featured tag.
