Am I blind? Is there no feed which includes the myTakes which haven't been featured or promoted? If you click on myTakes in the different topics it shows only promoted/featured ones too.
And since I just noticed that you can't promote myTakes for XP I'm asking myself, where can people actually find them other than hidden on peoples profile pages? I guess I'm blind because everything else would be ridiculous and a waste of time.
The only way to see un-promoted myTakes is to view it from a members profile or when a user you are following shares one, it will appear on your Live Feed when they post it or when someone shares an opinion on it. Other than that, the actual myTakes page only shows myTakes that have been approved and promoted by admin staff.
