There was an excellent site named "playfootballmanager" which closed a few years ago because the owner had other things to do, but one of my favourite features on the site were "featured stories". The admin followed stories closely enough to figure out which ones had continuing postings (as in, not very much... but noticed who had posts every week or so) and, at the top of the story page there were three "featured" stories, with the name of the story and a picture of your "avatar" was shown, where your story remained if it was updated continuously enough. If you slacked off and didn't write a post for two weeks, someone else would jump and claim your spot... but I thought it was an interesting feature to show which people had some dedication, as well as making the longer, more in depth (impressive) stories more accessible.
I mean, I might be biased, because my story sat on that featured bar at the top for 4, 5 months in a row, but I thought it was quite cool
It's like a "story of the month" award without having just one post (or zero) sitting there. Kind of an incentive to have your story featured on a site...
