What does Featured mean?

The administrators can feature members, discussions, groups, blogs and videos. This means they appear in the centre column of the main page so that everyone sees them when they first enter the website.

Who and what is featured changes regularly. The members featured are chosen because they've made interesting contributions that we think other members will be particularly interested in. Discussions, groups and blogs are chosen for the same reason. Videos are chosen also if their content is relevant at a particular time. For example, when this page was written, Michaelmas was approaching so we featured a video on St Michael; Jim Rosenthal was about to be ordained Canon so we featured a video of him giving a speech.
