From a quick observation, I've noticed activity for Featured Content has been pretty dry lately and it looks like it's almost to the point where there is very little choice.
This isn't a moan but rather an encouragement to get people to start nominating and voting for content that is of high quality with no major problems. I am sure there are plenty of articles, images, users, fanon etc. that are in good form and deserve to be featured.
Just follow the instructions on the appropriate page and voting will commence. After all, some of it may be largely related to something you've created...or maybe even yourself! ;)
