Two graphs of the featured content promoted this year, using the data in the table below. The line chart on the left shows the individual rates of promotion of each type of featured material, by month. The stacked bars on the right show the contribution of each featured-content forum towards the total number of new promotions, by month.
*Note: This does not include demoted content; numbers for featured pictures count sets as multiple promotions (one per image in the set)
This year, the Signpost has counted sets promoted at FPC as multiple promotions, owing to a change in the counting method; so the total amount of featured content promoted this year is not directly comparable to that promoted last year. However, it seems to have been an increase no matter what: as covered last year, in 2012 a total of 963 pieces of featured content were promoted, whereas sets account for fewer than 100 additional pieces of featured content. The average number of promotions for FAC, FPC, and FTC has increased, while FPOC has remained constant and FLC has actually decreased.
At FAC, common topics continue to include male political and military figures, ships, television episodes, and songs, generally from the US, Britain, and Australia. FLC has remained dominated by discographies and sports figures, predominantly from the US, Britain, and India; an increasing number of filmographies have also been promoted, as well as some bibliographies. FPC, as with last year, remains dominated by animal species, works of art by European and American artists, and similar subjects.
