It is when you like the blog post and it became featured soon. I believe, there is no points for that.

It's an obsolete term.  Once upon a time we had a "suggest" button to nominate a post for Feature.  If you were right, you got a Called Shot.  Years ago they switched to using Like of a post instead of Suggest, and no more Called Shots.

I liked those called shots... you could suggest to the powers that be a post be featured... sometimes it worked and you felt like you had a shot at helping people get the fleeting gold star....  and maybe one day you might get one of the elusive gold stars too....  but those days are over....

The concern was hard hunt and pecked blog posts that did not get the attention they deserved. An earlier version of social authority when lots of your peers took the time to send the memo alert that hey, this stuff is worthwhile, roll the AR feature spotlight over and shine a little light on this one. It engaged the membership rather than one mystery person behind the green shimmering sequined curtain doling out the gold stars.

It USED TO be great where we could actually make a "called shot" saying this blog should be featured. How nice would it be to see new blogs and bloggers featured again. The current way of selecting features is not working so well
