    The best guides on PlayDotA will be given the Spotlight of the site, meaning it will show on the front page, and be one of few guides that's displayed in the Spotlight of our guides section.

    Every guide in the Published Guides section, old and new is eligible for a Spotlight award. The latest 3 spotlighted guides are always the 3 shown on the front page and guides section, but you'll have a permanent record of all of your guides that's reached the spotlight.

    Ways to increase your chances to getting your guide in the Spotlight:
    • Easy to read guide, with good formatting.
    • Guide written about a hero that does not yet have a published guide.
    • Sound strategy that works and makes sense.
    • Pictures, animations, clips and replays to back up your strategies.
    • Not asking or PMing staff about winning Spotlight

    All guide writers that reaches the spotlight will also receive the Guide Writer Award, which will be displayed in your profile, and linking to your guide.

    Read the thread New Guides System FAQ for additional information.

    Re: Spotlight your guide!

    no spotlight since 10 days? I think that one guide at least deserve it :whistle:

    srsly, a few guides are good here.. naix guide, drow guide, etc

    are you going to make it as hard as to get as a premium spot? (real question, I'm wondering)

    We're working continuously on promoting spotlighted guides. The guides spotlighted is selected on average every 3 days, We've spotlighted a few new guides, and from now on we'll spotlight and unspotlight one guide each 3 days.

    Sounds like mine will be off the Spotlight soon then. No problem, I've seen a lot of guides deserving Spotlight far more than mine does :)

    Re: Spotlight your guide!

    I think that the spotlight thing choose randomly between a few selected guides
    if you refresh the guide page, you'll see that the guides displayed changes randomly

    maybe I'm wrong though

    That was a bug actually. It should show the latest 3 always.

    My guide is a highest rated for hero guides and it hasn't gotten its chance yet :/
    I think that slardar guide was the guide that taught me how to play slardar a while back.

    Grats on the spotlight to the Slardar guide, great layout and good reasoning backed up by solid figures (the table especially).

    Anywho, there should be a few guides under consideration for the next spotlight, pehaps including mine ;)
