    $\begingroup$ Thanks for bringing this up! I'm still pretty new to some of the moderator tools, and this the first time I have noticed the featured tag. I have added the featured tag to the questions you mention, so that they hopefully will show up sometime soon. $\endgroup$ Aug 3, 2017 at 7:09

As a BTW, looking at the edit history of Why don't members like our questions and answers?, it seems like the tag expires automatically.

Featured tag removal

For the post in question the tag was added Aug 3 and by Sept 9 it was deleted, by Community. This post, When and why is the [featured] tag removed by the Community user?, states that they are removed after 30 (or so) days:

if we did not, every meta would be littered with dozens of forgotten "featured" questions over time.

Also, I can't seem to get it to work, I've just featured the On-topic meta question, but it doesn't seem to show up anywhere in a "Featured" box. Neither on 3D printing meta nor the main 3D printing site.


It seems as if there is a little delay, at most 5-6 hours (I've tested it), between adding the featured flag and it appearing in a box:

Featured on meta

It also appears to hang around in the box for another 12- 14 hours after the tag has been removed.
