@Hamlet mentioned in chat that one way to promote this site would be to post links elsewhere on the internet to some of our best content. In order to make this easier to do, I thought it would be a good idea to gather a collection of particularly good posts here so far, so that we have some easy links to show off to people when we need to do so.
Since a collection of good posts "so far" will necessarily go out of date as time goes on and the site evolves, I decided to impose a time limit. Various other sites have a quarterly round-up of best posts; since this site started in January, and it's now April, it makes sense to limit this list to the first quarter of 2017, so that we can get new collections of best posts each quarter from here to eternity without being subject to the FGitW effect on whichever answers get posted here this month.
So, without further ado:
please nominate some exemplary Q&A from the first quarter (Jan/Feb/Mar) of 2017.
Well, just a little bit more ado ...
- When choosing nominations, please remember the primary purpose: to showcase our site to people elsewhere in the hope of maybe tempting them to come here. Let's try to focus mainly on great questions with great answers, and perhaps also great unanswered questions (which we can advertise as "hey, why not come and answer this"), but not anything with subpar answers, which will tend to give a bad impression and defeat the purpose.
- Getting a wide range of different stories represented in our list here would also be nice, but not strictly necessary - feel free to nominate a bunch of Q&A about the same book, if you think they're all outstanding. But don't nominate questions just because they're about your favourite book; please try to optimise for interesting, insightful posts.
- Multiple nominated posts per answer here is fine.
- Feel free to nominate either some of your own posts which you're particularly proud of, or posts from other people which really impressed you.
- Ideally, some explanation of why the nominated questions and answers are so good would be useful - it might give people here some ideas about what to aim for in the future.
