I take it that you have to submit a tech to be featured? Where? How?
I haven't found any information about this and i feel kinda dumb asking about it but now i'm curious, so yeah, how does it work?
If there's some forum thread or something that explains it link it pls

The tech of the week is a 'semi-random' tech on the Steam Workshop chosen every week (on Thursday/Friday I believe?) by @Matt. As far as we know, there isn't a specific criteria or goal for the Tech of the Week, although they generally tend to be one of the following, being techs that feature official skins/mods, are 'interesting', or look 'cool', etc.

In short as far as we know Matt rolls a d100, sorts by 'most popular in past week', and then picks a tech blindfolded until it's one he likes.

Hmmm... i saw the community core submission threads and thought it would be something similar, but i guess anyone can get tech of the week so long as they post in steam workshop. Thanks for the info!

It's kind of scary how accurate this is.

If we'd like a more formalised way of choosing Tech of the Week I'm open to ideas. Has anyone got any?

My only stipulation is that it has to be from the Steam Workshop though.

Use web crawler to obtain every tech which ever get on the workshop hot 8 in a week, then vote at forum or twitter.
This is fair but need more attention, because Tech of the Week never have any rewards.
I suggest pay some cards as rewards, like 5 cards can exchange a TerraTech activation code.

I got another idea.
Use web crawler to obtain every tech which ever get on the workshop hot 8 in a week and record the time length remain on the workshop hot 8.
Then the tech which have longest time remain on it, it's the tech of the week.
It's simple and easy to program, using no manpower, just don't forget to exclude reelection.
