In the past we have had meta questions for the purpose of celebrating and rewarding some of our best answers:
- Rewarding the best answers of 2016
- Rewarding the best answers of the first quarter of 2017
- Rewarding the best answers of the second quarter of 2017
- Rewarding the best answers of the second half of 2017
- Rewarding the best answers of 2018
Due to chat discussions we decided that it's better to do these things annually than quarterly. Then we seem to have forgotten to do anything for 2019 — probably in part due to the chaotic nature of the end of that year on SE — and we're now thinking of doing one for 2020 and probably also 2019.
In general, do you want to have these annual award ceremonies?
Anyone is free to give bounties at any time, but I still think this kind of celebration has its place. But these events are not for me or for moderators, but for all users, so we'd like to hear what you think.
In particular, how do you want 2019 and 2020 to be covered?
They could go in a single question or two separate ones. If separate, they can be held in parallel or sequentially. If we have the 2019 one now and the 2020 one or two months later, the events should be clearly distinct.
Any ideas for implementation are also welcome, but I think the past ones have worked well enough: There is about a month for nominating and voting, and then the situation will be locked and the top answers rewarded. The bounties are kept alive for about a week to give them more visibility.
