Choosing stories are really not that hard. All stories that wind up in the index are automatically eligible to be featured. I pass no real judgement on the story when I pick them out (since we all have different tastes) except that spelling/grammar is correct and that it fits the underrated criteria. What is more important is that we have a mix of featured stories to fit everyone, so one week we have action, the next drama. One week Saga, the next, Beyond and so on. Besides, the one that takes over temporary management of this thread only has to do it twice since I'm gone two weeks.
