There have recently been multiple features submitted in quick succession, so there may be a delay until yours is considered for approval.
Please refrain from submitting duplicate features if yours disappears. We can assure you it's still here and will be visible soon. The staff just like to even out the flow of new submissions.
Submit a feature for consideration on the home page of Simtropolis!
1. A feature can be announcing something notable in the community. For example, a new City Journal post, or a new BAT/STEX project.
2. Include a link to the showcased item of content.
3. Feature submissions are reviewed for approval by site staff, where they will be publicly visible. The time it takes for features to be approved may vary.
4. To keep it fair for everyone, you may only have one feature shown on the homepage at a time.
So if you submit a new feature while already on the slider, your previous one(s) will be hidden.
5. All standard Site Rules apply as usual.
