I think that Monthly feature should have it's own special little icon though. Looking exactly like the weekly icon takes away from it slightly.
Seeing these new additions, I have to ask:
1) Does this mean the Flash portal will see the introduction of the briefly talked about front page medals?
2) Will there now be a medal for the featured movie/game of the month as well?
The monthly winners WILL have their own medals. This was a case of "launch it, address that later" rather than "hold off indefinitely."
As for the other portals, we DO intend to have all these features in every portal. What everyone needs to keep in mind is that Ross programmed the Flash Portal, Liljim programmed the Audio Portal and Rob programmed the Art Portal. The 2007 redesign brought some crossover between the Flash and Audio Portals, but there is no crossover between them and the Art Portal. Any similarities are purely aesthetic while the guts inside look nothing alike. It's not the most desirable situation but we don't live in a perfect world and NG will always be an ongoing work in progress. Successful features of the Art Portal should be expected to cross over elsewhere eventually but it all takes time and resources.
