Some Stack Exchange sites, such as Literature Stack Exchange, Science Fiction and Fantasy Stack Exchange, Puzzling Stack Exchange and Spanish Language SE, have (or had, as the case may be) a tradition of trying to identify the best questions and answers from the last quarter. These are contributions that may be posted on a blog or a Twitter account if the site has one; otherwise they are a nice collection of the best contributions made in a community.

In addition to identifying material that can be used to promote the site elsewhere, such a list of nominations can also be used to highlight high-quality contributions that did not get a lot of votes when they were posted.

So what are the rules?

  • Find great questions and great answers from the last quarter. There are 204 questions and 408 answers to choose from.
  • You can nominate multiple posts per answer.
  • Some sort of explanation why the nominated post is particularly good would be worth adding. This can give future contributors an idea of how to write up good questions or answers.

    Well, I know it would be against Stack Exchange CoC (be friendly, no subtle put-downs) but I wonder if it wouldn't be more popular to introduce nominations for the worst answers, Razzie Awards style... – jlliagre Oct 4 at 19:43

    It would certainly be more popular, but given the atmosphere on FSE lately, I think some good old bienveillance won't hurt! 😁 – Reyedy Oct 5 at 8:16
