    While in New Article Boost, press the yellow star right next to the "Promote" button.
    • Once you do this, a message will be sent to the original author, telling them that their article has been selected as a Rising Star, and congratulating them. The article will also be added to the Rising Star feed, and marked as a Rising Star on its discussion page.
      • However, you can still write a personal message to the original author, complimenting them on their article.

Warnings

  • Don't select one of your own articles as a rising star. Instead, wait for a different New Article Booster or Admin to select it.
