Has your palette/pattern been spotlighted on someone's profile? Do you spotlight palettes on your profile? Spotlightees, come and see if you've been spotlighted and add your palettes/patterns to the group. Spotlighters, come display and discuss your choices.

Spotlighters: why? How? How long? etc.

Why do you do it?

Because I'm selfish and want to be surrounded by my favorite things and the current 'View Favorites' system doesn't really allow us to do that. As I often open my profile, it seems it was the perfect place to display some of my favorite palettes.
Also, I think these palettes are utterly brilliant and I hope that, upon seeing them, random passers-by will give them a little more love.

How do you make a choice?

I only spotlight palettes I've faved. I only now realize this may be too restrictive. Apart from this, it's a bit random really. At first, I spotlighted five palettes then ten then I displayed only the newest ones. Right now, I'm spotlighting a specific lover. I think my next criterion will be color.

For how long?

At least for more than a week. Two weeks usually, I think

Do you tell it to the spotlightee?

No. Maybe I should, I don't know. I think that's why I created the group. Because I don't tell them.
Why do you do it?

My reason for doing it is similar to onebreath's; I want to see the palettes that I love when I visit my page & I hope maybe other Lovers will see it there & check it out too.

How do you make a choice?

I choose based on my own personal opinion; some of these palettes just blow me away because they're so original or they just seem to work perfectly (to me) but they're something I don't feel I ever would have come up with myself, other palettes feel like me, like home... like I could have created that same palette on a different day & I feel a kindred with it.

For how long?

I only display four palettes at a time (I feel they get lost in a sea if there are too many spotlighted on one page), every couple days I remove the one that has been there the longest & add one new one (they rotate clockwise). So, I guess each palette gets displayed for roughly a week.

Do you tell it to the spotlightee?

I didn't at first, but I recently made an award badge & now I place it in the comments of the palettes when I feature it on my page (I also went back & added the badge to all the palettes I previously featured... I have an offline document so I know which Lovers/ palettes I've used before). I also tag the palette.
Why do you do it?

Ditto to Onebreath and Oread. I also think of it as a way to show others more about me, other than my own palettes, they can see what I like.

How do you make a choice?

At first I spotlighted my own palettes that I felt needed more exposure. Now I'm featuring my favorites by others, and since I felt I needed some criteria, I'm grouping by color, currently blue.

For how long?

Two weeks seems about right.

Do you tell it to the spotlightee?

No. I have had one person see one of their palettes on my page and left me a comment to say thanks.
Why do you do it?

Don't we all like looking at the things we love?
Lots of these palettes go unnoticed, especially with the rapidly escalating number of colours that are being added to the database. I think they deserve much more love :)
All the palettes I highlight on my page have been in my favourites for quite some time and I often go through my favourites to see if any palette(s) can be applied to my design projects. So my page serves as a quick reference as well as a showcase.

How do you make a choice?

Random from my favourites!

For how long?

I highlight palettes on a monthly basis. Whatever strikes me the most for that month will be displayed on my page for a whole month.

Do you tell it to the spotlightee?

I don't inform the spotlightee... I prefer that they stumble upon my page and find their palette displayed there, makes it a pleasant surprise for them :)
Why do you do it?

Because I'd go through my favourites re-voting and see awesome things I feel like displaying, and because I keep rediscovering my own.

How do you make a choice?

What I feel like. At this point I'm going through the favourites.

For how long?
Until I want something different, which is usually once or twice a month.

Do you tell it to the spotlightee?

Yes.
