This Signpost "Featured content" report covers material promoted in the second half of October (from the 18th).
If you're wondering about why the second half of October starts on the 18th, it's because I really, really didn't want to forget to include the featured topic mentioned last issue. Featured topics are rare, the formatting search-and-replace doesn't cover them, and I was a bit panicked I'd forget to include it, so I changed the point the month was divided to fit it in immediately, while I was paying attention.
featured articles were promoted this period.
