Besides reviewing, is there anything else that is looked into?

I like to imagine that the Featured Member is the survivor of a secretive and highly illegal behind-the-scenes gladiators' tournament.

Or the FBI determines it after tracking you for weeks.

Nah, I believe its if you are consistently helpful around the site, have good reviews/greets and surpass yourself with helping the moderators take account and you have a chance at featured member.

Kamas pretty much has it! There's also being kind, caring, helpful in general, and respecting other members.

But, really, there's only one featured member chosen every month, and there are a lot of good members on YWS. Don't worry about it too much. :)

*pats Kammie* It's ok, you won already. :D

Well, it's pretty much what everyone has said, I guess. I would say that it's going above and beyond what other (good) members do. Or something ...

Maybe it really is the FBI ... o.O

I think the four spies in my house have something to do with it.

I like people thinking that I have something so scandalous to say that I put it in spoiler tags, and I'm sorry that because of this selfish desire you were roped into reading this for not real lasting value.
