Could we perhaps have those (like our friends Mobafire)?

For example, there are 5 (!!) guides on Puck that are rated above mine, none of which are good, never mind recent. (not trying to boast here, just saying I spent 50+ hours on that thing) There should be a way to highlight guides that are well done.

Cheers,
Sofa

How about marking quality, mod-approved guides with some sparkly ****?

Or a mountain dew can.

Mods don't have the bandwidth to check each and every guide.
It's better editors and veterans do this every month or every patch

@tera: should I make a guide on rat Sven?

I still think the Favourite system should be prioritized over this, since it's one of the best tools for learning/accountability of good guides.

@Terathiel that's basically Mobafire's scout system, but I don't think there is such a huge amount of willing people to do all that since there aren't enough on MobaFire (+the system is flawed)

@KCAF It can be discussed, but won't promise anything

@CC The favourite system, as in the little hearts that allow you to save the guide into your dotafire account's favourite list?

I've discussed this before with Janitsu and several other people, I'll think more about it and see what we can do.

Thing is, on other sites as far as I know featured guides are posted weekly, here on DOTAFire I don't think we have enough updated quality guides that we could feature weekly.

I still can't believe you actually won that game.
