Much as I like having Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan as a featured site, it's time we got another one. Who'd you recommend?

Good question actually. Normally I'd look at the recent/new sites and pick one from those... however, since I haven't exactly been on top of the applications thing, that's a slim-pickings sort of gig. I'd welcome suggestions...

And yes, you can suggest your own site if you really want. Phase 2 only, as the database system only includes those sites.

Yes, good site, but already been featured. Actually, it was the first site to be featured. Not that it can't go again, but I'd like to see something new if possible.

All I can say is...even if you run out of every other Phase 2 site to feature, don't feature mine.  I'm afraid all the little 14 year old anime fans would pounce on it.  "Hey, will you host me?"  "I'm hosted...and no, he won't host you either.  Here's a pocky.  Now shoo."

I actually feel slightly guilty.  Bah.

How about Inaccurate Perdition? Or did it already get its chance? I like that comic a lot, and I can't think of anything else I look at regularly that hasn't already been featured. so....yeah.
I don't hate everyone, I'm just very, very disappointed in them.

Hmm, I haven't really read Inaccurate Perdition since I granted the site. I'll have to look into it. On first looks though, the site design is a bit of a turn off, and I'd prefer to feature sites which actually show the "featured site" section of the newsbox themselves. Just seems more fair that way.

Can you feature Miss Mab's site?  Or is that not good?  Also, what about Just Another Web Comic?

DMFA is already the most popular site here, and one of my personal favorite comics. It accounts for more than 1/4 of all traffic on the server. Doesn't exactly need a "boost." Also, it was featured semi-recently. (By my glacial update standards.)

Maybe the "featured site" spot should be held by a call to suggest a featured site, linking to this forum thread. Or the Xepher.net forums themselves could be featured so people become more aware of them.

I really would like it to be changed, to anything. To a naive reader, it looks like I'm hogging that spot.

I've already changed it. Did so two days ago. It's featuring hellbound right now.
