As of right now, the featured post banner looks very much like a button that I'd like to press. Instead, it should likely be a flat, single color banner that highlights the post as being most important.

I have mocked up what I think this featured post banner should look like on mobile and attached it here.

I agree that looking at the sticky banner element it *does* look like a clickable button.

@drewstrojny Thoughts on how to flatten and make it less button-like?

For mobile view the full-width banner might be overkill.

Good point Chris, this isn't very usable. Patch forthcoming.

Patch simplifies the featured post banner and makes the bypostauthor indicator less button like.
