    You said there was a section for Featured forums in the Members Area:

    Why have the option in the members area for it?
    Where is it because I can't find it.

    As for the the link submissions they are checked and approved every day. In fact they were completely caught up just a few hours ago and now there are about 8 waiting to be checked.

    If yours is not being approved for some reason them either you are not directly linking to your forums, or you would have received an email stating why it was not approved.

    I suppose the featured forum is an assigned number of forums, however underneath there is a link for the links.php.. Now I assumed, you "randomly" picked forums out of the links and they're placed as a featured forum. I guess you guys don't do it that way..

    Also, it seems like no one updates the links area, since my links have never been posted for months.

    most? that depends.. I'd say most active members might notice.

    I also just realized that my forum was still on the 'featured' list and have removed it. It was only put there for testing when we first added that function and honestly I forgot all about it.
    True, but why have a section for it on the members area? Why don't you just say: "these are the featured forums we will show" I don't see anything, anywhere stating that features forums will be hand picked.

    then why have an area for features forums? Why have the option in the members area for it?

    To "promote" the sites they choose only
