Latin SE has come a long way since we started nearly a year ago. We've seen lots of great questions and answers, and now, your moderators would like your input in determining what were the best answers of 2016. Here's how it will work:
- In a new answer to this question, nominate what you think was one of the best answers posted in 2016. Include a link to it and a few words explaining why you think it's great.
- The community will vote up and down on the various nominations.
- After three weeks (March 10, about 20:00 UTC), the three nominations with the highest scores on this meta post will be declared the winners.
- The three winning answers will be rewarded with bounties of 200, 100, and 50 reputation, from the personal reputation stashes of the moderators.
To reiterate, nominated answers must have been originally posted in 2016. You can use this search to find candidates, but remember – the number of votes that an answer has already received isn't a perfect metric of quality! There are many superb answers with a score of 6 or 8 or 10 that weren't created on the first few days of our private beta, or that didn't make it onto the Hot Network Questions list, and thus didn't get as much attention (and votes) as others. So this might be an opportunity for some of those excellent overlooked answers to get the attention they deserve.
For this contest to succeed we need your nominations and votes! We are planning to continue rewarding the best answers on a quarterly basis, and the level of community participation in this contest will directly impact whether we carry out the plan.
Remember, the deadline for both nominations and votes is March 10 at 20:00 UTC. Post your nominations early to ensure that they get the most visibility possible!
The votes have been counted and the winners of our first contest are:
