I don't think so, given their larger, active communities.

Does "featured" mean something that changes, perhaps monthly, over time?  That
could be good, but would require more "tending-the-garden" on an ongoing basis
for our website.  It we can find some volunteer help to help out with that, that
could work.

We haven't come across that issue before :-) ; I don't have any strong opinions
except that we should make it easy / obvious for users to do.  It might help to
look at what some other projects do.

I may get some time to take a look...  (It's "labor day" - meaning the family
asks you do to lots of labor around the house :-) )
