As I have mentioned in previous similar posts, 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 just over 340 questions and more than 580 answers to choose from [1].
  • 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.

[1] This is an increase compared to the last period for which I created a "best-of" question, i.e. the fourth quarter of 2020. Numberwise, the health of our site appears to be increasing.

  • Do we have to deal with the question and the totality of its answers? The problem is that questions sometimes are interesting/good.. but attract multiple answers some of which are wrong, or bad, with just one that is good and stands out.

  • @None I'm looking for great questions with great answers, great unanswered question and great answers that have received fewer upvotes than they deserve.

  • What I mean is how to deal with a question that has multiple answers, some of which being bad/wrong... but one is good or outstanding. Do we have to state what answer we want to draw attention to?

1 Answer 1


Can "parce que" be followed by a noun phrase, instead of a finite clause?
A precise, well asked and documented question and an answer that tackles grammar and vocabulary and that is open to regional variations.


How a very narrow question about a very abstruse text can nevertheless lead to a very open answer that makes us travel through a lot of French vocabulary and meanings.

In French, can an intransitive verb have an indirect objects
Probably good for promotion, helps to compare quality with other sites on French language.
