Ever Wondered How to Get a Featured Comment?

Last Update: January 04, 2017

How many of you have seen blog posts here at WA that have a "Featured Comment" at the top? I know I have, and I've often wondered how a Featured Comment is chosen.

Well, just now, I figured it out by personal experience. :)

There was this one comment on a certain blog post here that had 9 likes, and I happily gave it a 10th because it was really, really good. Suddenly that comment jumped to the top of all the comments, and had assumed the position of "Featured Comment".

So now I know: the first comment to hit 10 likes becomes a Featured Comment!

Did anyone here know this already?



Wishing you a very successful twenty-seventeen!

Ian

I had no idea, sometimes you can stumble on an answer when you aren't looking for it.
